Pet Peeves

“People who leave a voicemail, get cut off because they talk too long, then call back and fill up the voicemail AGAIN!” –Anonymous



“Unnecessary movie sequels. Really, do we need to see Shrek and Rocky get older and have more mishaps and life lessons? Can we just leave it be? The same for Ghostbusters, Miss Congeniality, Karate Kid, The Matrix, Legally Blonde, Dumb and Dumber, and Speed. Why? Take Saw for heaven’s sake, really, six Saws?” – Sally Slattery



“Parking on the wrong side of the street is not only a peeve that pets me, it is dangerous. While you can stop in your vehicle to enjoy the sunset over Eagle Bluff in Ephraim, please park on the right side of the road; better yet park at Harborside Park and enjoy the view from a bench or on the beach. Nothing worries me more than watching someone’s headlights pull onto their left shoulder when I’m southbound. Please for the safety of everyone, park in designated areas on the correct side of the road, the right!” -Citizen for Safer Roads



“Smooth peanut butter. Why does it even exist? It should only ever be chunky.” – Anonymous



“When you get new clothing, and it turns out it’s actually really crappy, and it pills. That’s my pet peeve.” -Anonymous



“Disrespectful people.” – Anonymous



“People that don’t pick up after their dogs. Especially in parks, on sidewalks, or on someone else’s lawn. They make bags for that, peeps. Pocket some bags, then walk your dog. Nobody likes a shoe full of poo.” – Anonymous



Is there something that really irks you, gets your goat, rubs you the wrong way, drives you up the wall, gets you bent out of shape, puts a stick in your craw, or makes you want to throw in the towel? Email your Pet Peeves to the Pulse for publication in a future issue, perhaps we’ll help you nip it in the bud.
