Things that work my nerves

I didn’t realize I have as many pet peeves as I do. I probably could come up with more but gladly stopped at 10 so I don’t seem like a jerk.

I think the ones that bug me most are towards the end.

How about that scrapbook page eh? It took me HOURS and I basically looked at one of Erica’s and a digital scrapbook freebie and tried to make it work. There’s a lot going on but I think it’s kinda cute… Perhaps too cute for a page about pet peeves. Oh well.
1. People honking behind me the millisecond the light turns green. Seriously? They must do this intentionally.
2. When the pizza box is left open. Don’t let the heat out people!
3. People who get way more sleep than I do, but complain about not sleeping. *cough* My husband. *cough*
4. When one guy prolongs the boring staff meeting with stupid questions.
5. When the drive through gets my order wrong and I don’t realize until I get home.
6. Aggressive drivers. I secretly hope I see them on the side of the road later (getting a ticket of course).
7. When people take forever to answer a simple question. … I was just looking for a yes or no.
8. When people don’t leave a voicemail when they call… Especially when they keep calling.
9. When people use religion as an excuse to be racist or discriminatory. God don’t like ugly. So don’t bring him into it.
10. Unsolicited parenting advice. I didn’t ask.

This was Day 11 of the installment of 30 Things my kids should know about me.

LOL…Love this! I agree with all of them 100%. Especially #8. Irks the heck out of me. If its THAT important, leave a message and give me time to get back to you! :-).

Emily says:

I think it’s super cute…sure, a little busy but still easy to read. And, I have a few of the same pet peeves!

don’t every move to NYC, you’ll get number one all day errr day! lol. I feel you though. 8,9,10, I so feel you!

Hildie says:

Oh my gosh, I never leave a message. Ir if I do I just say “call me back”. I don’t want to spoil the surprise! But my calling pet peeve is when people leave a message and say “hi, it’s me.” Like if I know you that well, do you really need to say “it’s me.”? What else are you going to say, “hi, it’s someone else?” Just start talking and I’ll recognize your voice!

Mrs jk says:

Lol, I never leave a message. And I never listen to my voice messages.

Tea Todd says:

#5 use to happen to me all the time. Now I will wait in the drivethrough and check my order, which I’m sure is someone else’s pet peeve. Sorry but I love saying “God don’t like ugly” to people who come at me with a nasty attitude. It makes them think about how their actions are at the moment, especially if they’re Christian, they will change their behavior 🙂
Love your blog keep up the good work.

Zee says:

Numbers 1 and 10 are definitely my pet peeves!

I stumbled on your blog and just wanted to say hello! Will be back for more 🙂

Alice says:

Hi Jenn!

I’ve been following your blog since before Lil’ J was born, but I haven’t worked up the courage to post anything til now! I love coming over here to read your blog and I think your children are absolutely gorgeous!

I hope I’m not being rude, but I was wondering how you would feel if one of your children came out as gay and/or wanted to marry their same sex partner? This is not intended to be inflammatory, I’m just genuinely curious. I’m from Australia and gay marriage is a big issue here (as it is in the US!).

Love your work!


I have plenty of pet peeves… I agree with so many of yours. I am one of those people who gives unsolicited parenting advice… but I think I’m mostly forgiven since I do it in the forum of my classes haha!

Jean says:

#5 sends me into the primal scream. But nothing beats blister pack-that hard plastic that you can’t cut through without fearing for your life and a trip to the emergency room.

YUMMommy says:

I can’t stand it either when I get all the way home only to find out the restaurant got my order wrong. I usually have to load both kids back up and go through the drive-thru all over again. I’ve just started taking that extra minute to look through my bag before I drive off. I know it drives the other customers behind me nuts because they’ve been sitting in line like me, but it saves me and the restaurant from a headache.
