Just a few of my pet peeves..........

Like most people, I have a few pet peeves. 
 
Nothing too serious, mind you, I believe that my pet peeves are probably things that bother most people.
First of all, I can't stand nasty ass people.  I've said it before and I will say it again.....and probably again.....I firmly believe that instead of 7 drawfs, there were originally 10 drawfs.  But 7 of those 10 dwarfs asked Cheesy, Funky and Nasty to leave.
 
Is it too much to expect that a grown ass man would wash his hands before he leaves the men's room?!? Whether or not you were in that back stall, yet again, sounding as if you were giving birth....is irrelevant to me.  Shouldn't we all wash our hands before leaving the bathroom?!?
 
Why would a man take a coffee cup into a bathroom stall with him?!?
 
Why is it that when a man that doesn't wash his hands.....and I've seen him exit the men's room without washing his hands.  Why is it that when he extends his hand for me to shake and I just look at his bacteria encrusted paw, rather than shake it......why is it that I would be called rude for not shaking his nasty ass hand?!?
Is it too much in a professional office environment to expect a grown man not to say "dis" or "dat" (even in the south)?!? Please please don't look at me and say "you know how we do".  I don't expect the queen's English, but what in the flap jack titty hell does "gooney goo goo" mean?!?
 
Is it too much to expect that your coworkers in said professional environment would brush their teeth daily so that their mouth didn't smell like bear pussy?!? 
 Is it too much in a professional environment to expect that you wouldn't be forced to smell another human being's body?!?
 
Why would any adult smell like onions or a fish market at 8 o'clock in the morning?!?
 Is it too much to expect a grown man to go into the men's room and not fill up the toilet before he flushes it?!? What is so hard about the drop and flush method?!? Why must I be forced to shout over the stall and request a "courtesy flush"?!? Why must my eyes water when I go into the men's room after that person leaves......and probably without washing his hands?!?
What kind of person sneezes into their hand and wipes it on their pants?!?
 
 Why are some people so goddamned nasty?!?
What are some of your pet peeves?!?

  1. lol, i feel you on the non-handwashers. Here are mine
    1. people who cough or sneeze and don't cover their mouth.
    2. people who talk on their phone loud in public places or public enclosed places (ie. bus, train etc.)
    3. young people who rap out loud.
    4. people in my office who may hear me talk about a subject, obviously from another cubicle and then join in the conversation like i invited them.
    5. panderers who get mad because you don't give them money or what they asked for. (ie. "Can you spare some change?" I hand them change. "you got a dollar?") SMH

    1. Yeah those things really disgust me as well. I'll never forget one time when I was walking somewhere close to NYU when a "bum" walked up to me and asked if I knew what the greatest nation in the world was......then he stuck out his hand and said "donation".

  3. Lmao! Reggie, you so crazy! Exactly how does bear puzzy smell? Lol!

    You read my blog so you already know that I have pet peeves. As for washing hands; I wash my hand so much I think it may have become some sort of OCD thing. You should see me when I'm cooking. I wash my hands constantly. And when I'm out I carry alcohol swabs with me to keep my hands germ free.

    Coughing without covering your mouth is a big pet peeve for me. I mean what grown person does that!? A lot, unfortunately.

    And public restrooms; I barely use them. I just can't. People are too nasty. I've been out shopping with my girlfriend on many occasions and have made her take me home just to use the restroom. Lol.

    There's a guy at your job that takes coffee into the restroom? What the heck is that about? Yikes.

    Oh and the 'dis' and 'dat' thing; yep, I've noticed that too. Lol. I especially notice it when supposedly educated people who are on TV use those words. I don't even know how that's possible. I really don't think they realize it.

    1. One things for certain Val, bear pussy can't smell good...though I've never personally smelled it.....of course.

      I have seen men take cups of coffee into a stall more than a few times. I mean, that's basically the definition of nasty. I wouldn't take anything to eat or drink into a brand new stall. That's just fucking nasty!!!

  4. One more big pet peeve for me. When women come over to my house and put their handbag on my coffee table or heaven forbid the kitchen table or counter in the kitchen.

    Women put their bags down all over the place. They put them on the restroom floor, on the floor of cars and all sorts of places. If you really want to get me angry put your handbag on my kitchen table. You are liable to get kicked out of the house!

    1. Ya know, this is something that I've never really thought about, but it makes sense Val. Maybe I've never really thought about it since I don't carry a handbag myself. However, this IS one of my wife's pet peeves.

    2. I never thought about this one either, and I think I've been guilty of doing it a few times. I will be more conscious of it now that you mentioned it.

  7. Am rolling on the floor you are funny dude..I have an issue with washing hands after taking a piss too...the water is free soap is free so why would anyone (men and women) be a penis and not use it?. Some people just have no clealiness skills and I feel how a person appreciates their personal hygiene should be a default. However upbringing plays a huge part in this too.

    I clocked onto the part of why should anyone smell of fish and onions in the morning? Point is no one should, but some people are allergic to the bathroom in the morning and just literally roll out of bed into work yuck.

    My pet peeve people clearing their nasty throat in my presence just as am about to eat..when I've experienced this it almost makes me wanna throw up ewwwww.

    This annoys the hell out of me.....going out to eat at a restaurant with penny pinchers or a repeat offender penny pincher who can afford, but only want to pay for what they ate puts a real damper on the evening.

    For mums and lord knows our jobs are never done but.....There is simply no excuse for leaving the house with your kids, knowing very well their nose is running like a tap and there is dried up food on their clothing they generally look unwashed, c'mon that is a pet peeve which riles me up.

    P's and Q's very simple yet people find using them in full difficult....pet peeve, giving way to a driver on the road who refuses to acknowledge a thank you.

    1. I used to work with this guy who would clear his throat constantly and it sounded like he was shuffling a deck of cards. In my head I always called him Vegas Craps.

      BareFoot Countessa I will give the people around me a mental nickname. I will call them by their Christian or not so Christian name to their faces, but in my head I refer to them by their nicknames. I don't share that nickname with anyone, it's for me only.

      There's Cheesy. He's the cheapest person that I've ever met in my life. He's the type of person that would demand that his children use one sheet of toilet paper at a time.

      There's Donkey Kong. He very tall, wears braids that are constantly in need of rebraiding and he's a big burly motherfucker, complete with the little hat. He looks unkempt on his best day.

      There's Fishy. She always looks clean, but she always smells like fish...even early in the morning.

      There's Blinky. she's got big pop eyes, she's cockeyed and she's always making a face like she smells ten pounds of raw sewage. Anytime you look at her, there is something constantly dripping out of one of her eyes, if not both.

      There's Rumplestilskin. He's a little bitty dude and he's mean as hell. He looks like he lives under a bridge or in a tree.

      There's Cosby. He always wears sweaters, even in the summertime. He's always got a big grin on his face; and he's always got food between his teeth.

      There's Hammer. He doesn't realize that the 80s want their clothes back.

      There's Fabio. He has long hair and he's always playing with it or tossing it around.

      There's Cousin It. He's short, hairy and has the longest hair I've ever seen growing out of his ears. Oh and he's always shedding hair somewhere.

      There's Uncle Fester. He's Caucasian, short and bald, he always wears dark clothes and he doesn't look particularly smart although he's quite brilliant.

      There's Shit Bomb. I don't go in the bathroom after him anymore.

      Yeah, I'm mean and judgemental and I can't even deny it. I'm trying really hard to do better though.

  9. One of my pet peeves didn't develop until I joined the military; I suppose because I never encountered it until then. There are people who "dip" or "chew" tobacco, which is disgusting to me by itself. On top of that, they use bottles to deposit their spit....then have the nerve to leave the bottles just laying around. It drives me crazy!

    The last thing I want to see is a bottle of someone's tobacco laced saliva chilling on a computer desk...or anywhere.

    1. UglyCleanBroke87 my roommate in college, Skegee, he used to do that too. He would dip and spit in a 2 liter Coke container. The whole room would smell like his spit filled Coke containers. I remember once he came home drunk and kicked one over and SWEPT up the spit.

      I only lived in that room with him for about two weeks, but those were the longest two weeks of my young life.

    2. Omg....see that's what I'm dreading. The day that someone leaves one of those bottles open and knocks it over. I know I'm going to FLIP. OUT.

  10. Nothing major. People who use the toilets at work in the morning to do what they coulda probably done at home, and it stinks like rotten guts. Women who pee really loudly with force and wild abandon in the cubicle next door, toilets that are too small forcing you to hear and smell too much of what may be going on beside you, people who walk really slowly on train platforms, pavements or anywhere where there's a large flow of foot traffic and I'm in a hurry. Cyclists who ride really fast on the pavement without considering pedestrians, bus drivers who stop mid traffic to chat to their driver mates ( also mid traffic) when you really have somewhere to go, people who stop suddenly in market places and almost trip you up. Shoppers who take ages to pay for their goods, or have so many cut out tokens that you almost wanna curse. Anyone blowing their nose loudly on public transport, bitchy, jealous or manipulative women,the decrease in the amount of crisps in the packets yet the price remains the same or higher,pork.

    1. I don't mind using my own toilet, but I'm always apprehensive about using any other toilet out there.

      I'm tall so I have long legs and I tend to walk fast. People that walk slow get on my damned nerves too Dawna.

      Okay, wait a minute.....pork is a pet peeve of yours?

  12. OMG Reggie! I'm so glad I wasn't eating or drinking anything when I read this because you had me CTFU over here. I can completely agree and understand how you feel though.

    I used to work with a woman who didn't wash her hands after she used the bathroom and then you'd see her putting her hand in someone's pretzel or candy jar. Needless say, I NEVER eat from any dish or jar around the office. Heck, I didn't anyway, but she punctuated why I didn't anyway.

    My list
    People with NO sense of hygeine
    Adults/kids who eat out of bags of cookies/chips etc and lick their hands and then put their hands back in the bad. POUR SOME OUT ALREADY
    Oversized people who wear shirts with the bellies hanging from under it
    People who put their hands in your food without permission
    People who get in the bed with street clothes on...a MAJOR x10 peeve of mine

    Those are just a few. I'd have to do my own post about my peeves.

  13. There was a woman at my previous job who would hock and spit into her trash can all day long, every single day. First, why did she have so much mucus in your throat to have a seemingly never-ending supply to hock up. She should probably get herself checked out. Second, that poor cleaning lady who had to empty her trash can. At least spit into a napkin and then throw it into the trash can. I mean, her trash can was basically an accumulating daily reserve of her hocked-up throat snot. Okay, I better stop writing about it. I just gagged.

    1. Nicole that woman was one nasty bitch.

      I used to work with a woman just like her. One day we were in my office having a conversation and in the middle of the conversation she picked up my trashcan and hocked and spit in the trash. I was floored, I didn't know what to say. It's not often that I am speechless. I've never been a man accused of saying too little.

  14. The whole bathroom issha seems to be many people's pet peeves. I haven't stuck around the bathroom long enough to see who is doing what, but believe me, it's a hot topic of discussion... and definitely a pet peeve all around. i wash my hands profusely, and then go to my desk and use a disinfectant hand wipe. I'm a bit OCD about that type of thing.

    My pet peeve is a lot of gossiping. I see too much of it, and how it hurts people.

    I can't stand the constant popping of gum, either. Ugh.

  15. Reg,the washing of the hands thing is a pet peeve of mine as well.

  17. LOVE your pet peeves, Reggie! The first one you mentioned is the worst. When I see this occurring, I have no problem telling the guy, " Did you just bypass the soap and water after just pissing or shitting?" That always makes them feel guilty, and they always back track and wash their hands. I HATE that. That's trifling!

    My other pet peeves are :

    1- rudeness.
    2- someone cancelling plans because they're sick, then mutual friends facebook tagging pics of them at a party from that evening they were supposed to be sick.
    3- screening calls.
    4- people forgetting to include you at parties and other social events but you're the first person they think about when they need help moving or carrying heavy items from Ikea to their truck.
    5- In Paris a couple asked if I could take a picture of them in front of a momument, and I said yes. Then after I took the pic I asked if they would take my pic, and they both said 'no', then walked away. That pissed me off so much.
    6- People who can , to use my mom's phrase, 'talk a dog off a meat wagon.' Some people at my job, I will go out of my way to avoid them because saying hello to them always involves about 20 minutes or more of conversation where I'm waiting for a lapse in the convo to say 'ok, I'll catch you later.' I have been known to pretend my cell phone vibrated and it's an emergency call I have to take.
    7- People who critique me with bad spelling.
    8- People (my mom) who will let the same people piss them off over and over and they call me about the new rude thing the person did or said -without kicking them out of their lives. Sometimes my mom makes me wanna scream.

  20. Well, dinner's on so I can't read through the 48 comments. Hopefully I don't repeat what anyone else said. There are two reasons people are nasty: 1) it's convenient for people to be nasty, and 2) people don't have enough home training/respect for others to not be. I hate it too, but I'd rather not take on the superhuman task of bringing people up to my level. Too many people, too much improvement per person.

    As far as the broken English, I live in a town that's 1/3 college town and 1/3 country. It comes with the territory, and I've learned to live with it...for the next several months.

    1. I don't care why people are nasty...I just don't want to have to deal with their nasty asses.

      J.A.H. I went to a historicially black university here in the south. There's a scene in the movie School Daze where a group of college boys go into a KFC and end up having to leave, because a few of the locals (Sam Jackson being one of them) bumped heads with them. I experienced that same scene with a few of my friends once....I understand.

  21. You got the cleanliness, funk, and the proper English one on here, so I won't repeat it.

    I do get annoyed when someone is clearly on his cell phone, yet trying to talk to me at the same time. Either cut your conversation short on the cell phone or just talk to me later. Especially if we are supposed to be on an outing.

    Also, I don't want to hear your cell phone conversation. I get annoyed when someone is talking loud as all get up, even worse when you feel like you have to put that person on speakerphone. Get a headset, even if it's the one that looks like regular headphones, and Bluetooth's are getting cheaper and cheaper. Better yet, save the phone conversation for when you are in a quieter location so you don't have to talk as loud.

    And please, unless you have a bluetooth or voice activation engaged, I'd rather you not talk on your cell phone while driving. If I don't have a way to answer safely, I let it go to voice mail. If it is important, then the person can leave a message. I have been a victim to people almost running into the back of me, trying to swerve in my lane when they didn't have room, just because the person is having an animated conversation on their phone or taking their eyes off the road to answer it or find it. And for God's sake, stop the texting while driving; what is so crucial to type down that you can't wait until you quit being in motion?

    I can't stand when it's supposed to be an event, like a movie premiere, Broadway play or musical, intimate dinner, doctor's visit, graduation, wedding, funeral, about to have intense, ain't had none in years off the chain sex and next thing you know, your ring tone has to be the center of attention. I don't want to hear "Bytch betta have my money" when one of my family members has died or when I'm trying to have an orgasm.

    Cell phone etiquette should be a mandatory course for teenagers and grown ups alike.

    I'm sure there are more, but cell phones take the cake.
