Pet Peeves

I hate when people in public washrooms put the toilet seat cover down over the toilet seat. I try my hardest not to touch any part of a public toilet so when these people put the seat cover down then I'm FORCED to lift it. Yucky! Seriously people, just leave it alone. I'm not a germophobic. It's just that it's a public washroom and well you get my drift.

On the topic of pet peeves, I have a few of them.

Another would have to be DRIVERS. And that is all drivers on the road except for the vehicle I'm in. I have so many issues with other drivers I don't know where to begin. Some of my major ones are: driving below the speed limit, not signaling (thank goodness we got our trailer signal light working), tailgating, not knowing how to merge, etc. The list goes on, but my number one driving issue is a Utah Road Block!! For those of you that don't know what that is I'll explain. It's when there is supposed to be a fast lane and a slow lane EXCEPT some idiot has decided to go into the fast lane and drive side-by-side with the slow lane vehicle therefore creating a road block. People in Lethbridge are great at this. But it's named after Utah cuz Tim spent two years there on his mission and told me how horrible it was there and then we drove all the way to Vegas last summer and the only traffic problems we had was the Utah Road Blocks in Utah and the minivan with the Utah license plate in Idaho. Now I know I have a lot of people from Utah that read my blog and I'm hoping you all are the exceptions to Utah drivers. But rest easy cuz the Utah Road Block happens in Alberta all the time.

But my number one pet peeve is leaving the cap off the toothpaste. It takes only 0.5 of a second to put it back on. This stems from sharing a bathroom with my sister. She was horrible for this and therefore I always got nasty, crusty, dried out toothpaste. I haven't had this problem with Tim, thank goodness. It's cuz I buy those flip cap toothpastes now. However he does threaten to leave the cap open when I forget and leave my wet towel lying on the end of our bed (yes, that's Tim pet peeve).

So now it's your turn. Tell me your pet peeves. And for those of you that read this blog and never comment...well here's your chance as well. Let me in on your pet peeves. And Casey, you can't say newlyweds, socks in the middle of the floor, or 11 yr old girls.

Seriously, drivers are #1 on my list as well. People parking in front of my house! Makes me insane. Aaron just reminded me of another one....when he uses his fork to get the sour cream out, especially cause there's always a spoon right there for him to use! It just grosses me out!!!!!!

Kim said...

Whoa, I am totally dittoing on the sour cream thing. Is dittoing a word? Anyway, I hate it when my hubby's only job around the house is to take out the garbage, and he waits until it is overflowing (unless I have decided to do it myself). I had a better one, but it is too late to think.

All I can think of is Lethbridge drivers as well. Sooooo slow.
