Pet Peeves

A pet peeve is when someone, something, or and action is done that really irritates you.  Pet Peeves can be very different for everybody.  My major pet peeve is when people constantly interrupt me or blurt out when I am trying to talk.  That bothers me because first it is rude and second it is interrupts my train of thought.  So get on your soapbox and tell us your pet peeve!!!

  1. Another pet peeve of mine is when people cut me off when I am driving. It really bothers me because then they go really slow, and I can't get around the. The traffic is bad enough in Houston, so those type of drivers make it even worse. I always try to be very patient when I drive!

    1. I agree, Mrs. O'Connell. I wish that people would be more attentive as they drive. Maybe if Texas ban all cellphone use in cars that people would cut you off less often. Just a thought...

  2. My pet peeve is when I am riding my bike and a car gets behind me. Then they honk at me when they should move out of the way because I was there first. When I grow up if there is someone in front of me I will move out of the way. I don't like people who do that.

  3. My pet peeve is when nobody listens to me. I have to scream and yell and then finally they listen. It really bothers me. Especially when I ask them a question and they totally ignore me. Its so rude! And then I have to say it five or four times until they listen. I always try to ignore the fact that those people think that I am invisible, and go on with my life.

    2. Rivers... hang in there. A large majority of the population has extremely poor listening skills. The more you become aware of it, the more you will notice just how wide-spread it is, and the more it will drive you nuts. I am sure you have probably experienced all the other nonsense that goes along with it such as:

      - interrupting you too quickly
      - talking your ears off
      - rarely taking an interest in your interests
      - extreme denial if you confront them
      - blaming YOU for THEIR listening problems
      - tendency to debate/challenge your views
      - assuming things about you without all the facts
      - getting frazzled somehow at your insight
      - forcing you to be something/somebody you are not
      - as you advance, they tend to thwart it

      There are things you can do. But once again, that means you must bend for others meanwhile they rarely or never bend for you. The sad truth that nobody wants to admit is that if they are not listening to you they actually don't care about you and your feelings. Right? If they are ignoring you, that means they don't care what you have to say. But don't take that truth personally; it's not about you per se but rather their own inability to take an interest in others and their own inability to shut their mouths and let you talk. Here's a tip: seek out people who are quiet. They are usually good listeners. And people who are good listeners also are usually intelligent. It may take a while to find someone like that, but it is just a reminder for you so you can keep your eyes out for such rare people.
