Weigh In - What's Your Pet Peeve?
10/21/2008 - By by Lauren Covino

Weigh In - What's Your Pet Peeve?

What's Your Pet Peeve?


This morning I woke up and felt fantastic. The sun was shining through my bedroom window, I hadjust had a wonderful dream, and I could smell fresh bacon and pancakes cooking downstairs. “Nothing will ruin this day!” I thought, unaware of the deluge of pet peeves I was about to endure. After waiting several minutes for the freezing shower water to turn steamy, I realized my sister had used up all of the hot water. After the shower, shivering and dripping wet, I searched for my warmest pink sweater. When I found it I noticed a huge rip in the seam! My best friend had borrowed it last week, hadn’t she? At that point, I no longer needed a sweater to warm me up; I was burning inside with anger!

After choosing another outfit, I was anxious to run to the kitchen and fill my belly with a hearty meal, but none had been left for me! I scowled, then quickly grabbed my coat and car keys and stomped out the door. I could feel my chipper mood turning stale. On the radio there was nothing but commercials and chatter – the worst! As my car inched through traffic, I decided a stop at the bakery would lift my spirits. Just my luck, all of the corn muffins were sold out. Irate, I turned to leave and smacked right into a rack of gum, spilling it all to the floor.

Ever had a morning like this? Pet peeves are lurking everywhere, just waiting to turn smiles into frowns: the woman at your office with an obnoxious laugh, the gas station attendant who takes his precious time reaching your car, or a screaming baby with thoughtless parents casually chatting nearby. See what LivingInMedia readers had to say about their personal pet peeves and what annoys them to no end. What is your greatest pet peeve?
