If you’ve been following up with my blog posts, you’ll know that I have decided to start a 30 day writing challenge (challenge provided at the bottom of this post). This is the third post of the 30 from that challenge, all in hopes to get me back into my writing. Wish me luck!
Day 3: What Are Your Top 3 Pet Peeves?
For today’s topic, I’ll be addressing my top 3 pet peeves. I’m not sure if I can rank these as my top 3, but nonetheless, these are some of my pet peeves:
1. Repeating Myself
Everyone knows I’m a quiet person and I get that maybe whoever I’m talking to just didn’t hear me or had trouble hearing me. But there is a difference where you just weren’t paying attention and I’m clearly talking. It annoys me so much. Or when I’m at a loud place and I physically can’t speak any louder because I’m so soft-spoken that I can’t even have a conversation because it makes me feel ignored when they can’t hear me and don’t know I’m even talking.
2. Being Called a Liar/Something I’m Not
I’ve always had a problem with people thinking that I’m lying about something because I am such an honest person. It makes me so mad because there is no trust there. Or because they are in denial about something that I said. I don’t really know how else to say this, but I just hate it.
3. When People Trash the Public
I didn’t know how else to phrase that heading, but this has nothing to do with littering, which is still wrong. If you know me, you know I like to keep my areas neat and organized. If you’ve worked in retail, you’ll notice how often customers place things in the wrong places and how infuriating it is to clean up after them. But the worst part of it that makes me so mad is that most of the time, they are so close to where they should have placed it. For example, at the gym, I saw this guy stretching with a plastic pipe. When he finished, he literally put it against the wall on THE OPPOSITE SIDE, 1 foot away. Like, how ignorant. Another example is one that to this day enrages me. I used to work at Sears before it closed down in the local mall. If you don’t know what it’s like to be in the process of closing a store, let me tell you, it’s WAY worse than normal. It gets way busier and the messes become unsurmountable. Anyway, so every single day and at every second of the day, we had to pick up after people because it was so messy. The customers make it messy. And I don’t know if they just think that because the store is closing, it means it’s a free for all that they just have to trash the place. BUT LIKE HOW HARD IS IT TO PUT A SHIRT BACK ON THE HANGER AND PLACE IT ON THE RACK? People would just throw the clothes on top of the racks like it was nobody’s business. One time, we had to close off one of our fitting rooms (mind you, we had other ones that were open) and we had signs up directing them to the open ones. This was just temporary because the person who was in charge of that fitting room had to take a lunch break. This girl had the AUDACITY to move the thing blocking it off and go in there. Words cannot explain how mad I felt because she had the nerve to completely ignore the rules, like she was in such a rush. First of all, why go to the mall when you’re that impatient? And that was just one instance. People did it all the time. I just hate how ignorant people are that they don’t even consider the people that have to clean up after them like if they were our children. It really makes me wonder how these people were raised because of how inconsiderate people are and they don’t even realize it.
