Sunday Social

This week's Sunday Social questions were right up my alley, the things that bug me? I can do that!

1. What is your biggest driving pet peeve?
People who drive way under the speed limit. I'm not talking about when it's blizzard conditions out there, I'm talking about the people who just drive 10-15 mph under the speed limit just to drive me nuts. Keep in mind, most of the roads around here are narrow and/or winding which equals few opportunities to safely pass these obnoxious people. 

2. What is your biggest blogging pet peeve?

When people say negative crap just to be mean. I get it, you may disagree with what I'm saying... sometimes even I disagree with what I'm saying, but if your comment is just nasty or to make you feel better, try closing your browser and cursing me under your breath. It will have the same effect, I just won't have to deal with it. *

*if you do have a legit disagreement, I'm open to discussion, I just don't see the need for the straight up hate/bullying that is so common in blogging these days.

3. What is your biggest shopping pet peeve?

People who block an entire area. Yeah, you need to debate for 10 minutes about which item you're going to get, I'm there, I do it all the time. However your cart/body/family/friends/army of followers don't need to block off the entire section. Worse is when these blockers see you there, waiting patiently to pop in to grab something, and don't move a muscle. Really? You couldn't back up 2 feet for 30 seconds? I swear I'll leave you alone after that!

4. What is your biggest general pet peeve?

The hinting request. Mostly this is little kids, but I've seen plenty of adults pull this trick. It's the "I wish I had...." or, "You're so lucky to have...". My students pull this all the time if there's candy on my desk. My usual response is "Yeah, that would be cool" or "Actually there's no luck involved". To be honest, if they had just asked for it, I'd probably pass it over. But that passive-agressiveness? Just bugs me. 

5. What is your most irrational fear?

Being murdered in my sleep. Yeah, because Southern Maine is a hotbed for violent crime, not to mention my sleepy neighborhood... yet for some reason, this is an all-consuming, legit fear for me. In bed at night I'll hear the house settling or a random noise and be convinced that someone is in the house and I'm done for. I've watched way too many scary movies and crime-scene tv shows.

  1. I feel the same way about slow drivers. On my post I put people who don't use blinkers first but I think that is actually secondary to my annoyance with slow drivers. I *may* be kind of a speed demon, and I will always give someone a pass for driving the speed limit, but under when there are no hazardous conditions or you're in the fast lane? GET OUT OF MY WAY!!!

  2. I literally had to get myself to stop watching Criminal Minds and NCIS. I couldn't stand the all the break-in, stalker, hiding in the closet (etc...) scenarios they implied. I was loosing sleep over every odd noise in my house. Did I mention I have 3 dogs.... talk about irrational. haha

    Hope you had a great weekend!


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
