Pet Peeves

What are some of your pet peeves? Whether its beauty related or not. One of mine is when people walk up the escalator when the stairs are right next it. Especially when they wait for their turn on the escalator instead of taking the stairs. 

 

Re: Pet Peeves

I have several but I've been working on not letting them bother me so much, I am very much a Type A personality.  I think at the moment my biggest one would be my upstairs neighbors' sleeping schedule.  The floor up there is rather thin so I can hear EVERYTHING.  I don't know when these people (that myself and my roommate have deemed our elephants) sleep, they sometimes have a normal quiet night, other times they're to bed at 6am and up at 10am, there are nights when they're going to bed at 2am and their alarm (which both vibrates and sounds like an evacuate alarm) goes off at 530am and is not turned off for hours O.o  I have earplugs, but after so many nights they make my ears sore, I'd talk to them, but they're not doing anything wrong.  Everything they do is just living sounds not in excess so it would seem rude to speak to them about it.  If they had a regular sleeping schedule I don't think this would be so much of a problem.

Re: Pet Peeves

If they are nice people, especially if they are guys, they shouldn't be too touchy or explode when you ask. My downstair neighbors are frat boys and I hate it. Constant noise is ok but I hate the sharp high pitched scream from drunk girls and I can hear every single curse word the guys utter very clearly. One day my friends can hear their partying through my phone...through the floor, so I went down there and called the guy outside. He was very understanding and gave me his number, so now if they are too loud after midnight, I just send them a text and they quiet down.

Re: Pet Peeves

That's awesome!  But our neighbor's are pretty quiet unless they yell across the aprtment (not often) or are on the phone, they don't really have guests over and don't play music unless it's daytime, and even then it's only once a week or less Smiley Tongue  They're good neighbors, the only fault is poor insulation Smiley Happy

Re: Pet Peeves

When people touch my face with their fingertips. Drives me mad. All I can think about is the oil/bacteria getting on my skin & causing breakouts. 

Re: Pet Peeves

That oogies me out too, roxystar4! My boyfriend likes to touch my face and I hate it. Although when my son was little, he used to love to "trace my face," as we'd call it. He would take this little finger and trace it around the perimeter of my face and up and down my nose and over my eyebrows. It was really cute, and he loved when I did it back to him. Heart

Re: Pet Peeves

My biggest pet peeve is when people ask me what my pet peeves are. HAHAHAHAHA(pretty funny huh?) o.o No really I have to say that being around someone when they are eating and they are smacking their food as they are talking or have a wod of gum in their mouth. PEEVILLE :/

Re: Pet Peeves

I find that akward as heck when they're smacking their food and I'm just like okayyyyy

Re: Pet Peeves

@beautylovingirl that's me too! If you are eating food like you're eating shards of glass? That's a definite no-go for me!

Re: Pet Peeves

I'm with you all on the food smacking noises.  My office area used to be really quiet, as a number of cubes around were empty and other people worked from home (as I'm doing today).  Now I have a number of new neighbors.  They're not noisy, but one always seems to be chewing something (and it sounds like he's eating with his mouth open), burping, etc.  It's even worse because things are generally quiet. 

 

I'll admit, it does make me want to work from home even more, though the drive in hot weather without AC in the car is the big demotivator.
