When you are having a bad day, certain most common pet peeves can really throw you over the edge. It's interesting how very small details can bother us so much. Pet peeves are minor annoyances that an individual may find highly bothersome, to a greater degree than others. It's something that we can't really control! Here are some common pet peeves that you might find applies to you!
1. Mouth Noises
One of the most common pet peeves is mouth noises. Here you are having a nice lunch in a tranquil and serene atmosphere when you hear constant loud smacking and chewing. You look around and eye the person who is making the noise, but it is as if they are clueless about what is going on! Personally the noises drive me insane to the point when I sometimes have to remove myself from that situation and find another place to eat. Now I understand why my mother always tells me to eat with my mouth shut! Loud gum chewers and food smackers stop the noise!
I am all for communicating with confident and intelligent people, but when their confidence becomes too overbearing that is when I draw the line. There are some people in this world who have been blessed with a sharp mind that can absorb all of the information in the world. However it is up to those people to be humble about it or to be obnoxious. The people I am talking about choose to be obnoxious! They correct your every word and challenge your every position. It's enervating and oftentimes unnecessary!
3. Movie Talkers
We go to movies to escape reality and enter a fictional world, but it is much harder to do that when people beside you constantly talk about nonsense while the movie is playing. You are trying to focus but they keep disturbing you! To add on to those types of people, there are also loud chip eaters and movie texters, who make your movie experience that much worse!
4. Rude Workers
There is nothing worse than being helped by a rude worker. It is as if you are forcing them to do something for you, when it is their job! They are supposed to offer their help and at least look like they are enjoying it. However some workers have no shame in showing how much they hate their job and how much they would rather be doing anything else than helping you!
5. Overuse of Words
One of the things that bothers me most about people is their overuse of certain words such as like, literally,etc. They choose to insert the word 'like' between every word in their sentence! The english language has a myriad of words that can articulately express your feelings, so why resort to just one word 'like'?
6. Leg Shakers and Pen Smackers
Most of you who attend school might agree with me on the fact that there is nothing more annoying than people who shake their legs and smack the desk with their pencil while you are taking a test. You are trying to recollect the material you've studied the night before or calculate some numbers in your head, but it's impossible to do when there is a desk shaking or constant hitting noises!
7. Ad Pop-ups
Nowadays every link that you click brings up a pop-ad! Some of them you may notice right away and cancel them out but others you have to search for. There are even times when there are noises coming out of your speakers and you don't know where they are coming from, so you have to look through every tab to locate the source! After a while it becomes very annoying and aggravating!
