All this vacation time has really gotten me thinking of my pet peeves. Call me cynical, call me impatient, but I have become very aware of these things in the last week. Maybe the time off has allowed me to pay more attention to my surroundings. Some of these may be repeats from past posts, but I like to have them all tidy in one list:
1.) Text messages that say "hi," and that's it.
2.) Mass holiday greetings (i.e. via text message).
3.) Idiot drunks who repeat the same thing over and over again (like the 10 minute conversation I had with a guy at the bar regarding my 180s earmuffs)
4.) People who throw up on the subway (like the girl last night who I saw throwing up into her boot, while her boyfriend took pictures from every angle)
5.) Bigotry (I can't even begin to tell you how often I encounter this, or how much I despise it)
6.) People sending retarded mass emails (especially politically themed ones)
7.) People who idiotically think public transit is only for poor people (hello!), and are too good for it.
8.) When people weave all over the sidewalk while you are trying your damndest to pass them (keep it in one lane!!)
9.) When people are not on time. Because I always am, and then some.
10.) When people don't pick up their dog poo from the street.
I think that about sums the biggest pet peeves up. If I think of more, I will post another installment at a later date :)
