Pet Peeves?

Did you know that there’s an actual website called,  Go ahead…Google “pet peeve” and see how many lists exist!

pet peeve

Here’s the top 3 on the site Ranker:

  1. People who interrupt
  2. Unflushed/messy public toilets
  3. People who never stop talking/talk over you constantly.

How about drivers who don’t use turn signals?  People in the 10 item check out lane who have 20 items?

What’s a polite person to do when faced with a pet peeve?

You have two options–point it out or don’t point it out to the offender.   I vote for the second option.   Just move on.  You control you and your behavior.  To point out faux pas or pet peeves would be rude, as it may only be your sensibilities that have been offended.  Also, pet peeves are personal opinion based.  Is your opinion the one that matters most?  If so, you might be an offender, too.

Just breathe, nod, and smile.
