Pet Peeves

I want to hear what your pet peeves are.
You can't fix stupid........BUT you can dress them up and over pay them to teach your kids!

Businesses that say they'll get back to you, but they never do.

That, and the amazing lack of a simple 'thank you' and 'please' in daily interactions with strangers.

You don't like it when your mistresses don't get their periods?
Where oh where’d my body go?
Africa or Mexico?

OOOHHHHHHH, you said my BIGGEST pet peeve JO! The lack of manners today drives me crazy! It first stands out with children but then when you meet the parents you can see why the children don't have any manners either!!

Anniecat, I sometimes can hardly believe the attitude out there.

BoB, people who are late are a pain, although only if it is a chronic habit. The funny thing is, people who are always late actually resent anybody else for being late. :127:

People who spit out their chewing gum on sidewalks and in parking lots...especially on hot days!
It's possible to do all the right things and still get a bad result.
