I got this idea from my friend Kristie at Writer's Block. She listed her pet peeves & so I decided to do mine, too.
People who don't use their turn signals
Rudeness and bad manners in all forms
Bad grammar just grates on my ears
Wal-Mart, Kmart and Sears - cheap clothes make me itch
The salespeople at, for instance, Gap and Maurices, who try to get to you to sign up for one of their credit cards and don't take no for answer--they ask you 3 times
People who call me and cough in my ear
People who call a company & are completely unprepared for what they are going to say
People who call and complain that they can't hear you because their TVs are turned up too loud
People who let their children run loose in stores & restaurants and on airplanes and don't even attempt to control them or discipline them
People who leave mean anonymous comments on blogs
People who don't keep their word and cancel plans at the last minute all the time
I am sure I could think of more, but these are probably enough. Now I sound all crabby--ha ha!
I don't like to be all negative, so I am going to balance these with some positive things. Things that I like.
People who spell my first name right and my last name, too, and even remember to capitalize the J!
People who let me merge in traffic -- good karma for them
Getting cards in the mail - thank you cards, holiday cards, just because cards
Finding a new writer or a new blog
Fancy bathrooms at nice restaurants and upscale stores
Nordstrom, Tiffanys and Kate Spade
The feeling of paying off a credit card
Dogs and cats
Making new friends through blogging
Keeping old friends and knowing you can count on them
