Knowing meme, knowing you


Artist unknown 







Edder from I Don’t Care for your Tone shared her top 15 pet peeves and invited others to do the same. Here are mine:

  • Sniffing. If your nose is running, blow it.
  • When people don’t know how to use the words their, they’re or there.
  • Double negatives.
  • People without ethics. Just because others do it doesn’t mean it’s right.
  • When people say 'supposebly' instead of 'supposedly' or ‘praformance’ instead of ‘performance’.
  • Those that borrow books and don’t return them.
  • Drivers who perform dangerous manoeuvres in order to gain a car length or two.
  • People who don’t pull their weight at work.
  • Guests who don’t know when to leave.
  • Not covering your mouth while sneezing or coughing.
  • People who ask a dozen questions of the waiter before ordering.
  • Using the phone speaker function in a busy work area.
  • Whiners.
  • Callers who say their phone number too quickly at the end of a long rambling voice mail and you have to listen to the whole thing again to get the number.
  • People who drop cigarette butts on the beach.



  1. Maybe snow cones! Or people who come for dinner, bring shitty wine, then insist on opening it.

    And people with Swine flu!

  2. People who sai "libary" instead of "library".

    Uninformed people who think if they talk louder they make more sense.

    People without manners.

  3. Lermontov - why snow cones? I don't think I've ever had one so I wouldn't know. Agree with bad wine and swine flu!

    Bob - totally agree "libary" eeeek

  4. Irresponsible pet owners.
    People who think Ronald Reagan was the greatest American who ever lived.
    Toast crumbs in the butter dish.

    --oh, don't get me started!

  5. I didn't not know that people should'nt sneeze into they're hands. Supposebly it's not ethical.
    Fun list. Kinda like the things you see when you don't have a gun.

  6. Intelliwench - totally agree about the crumbs. Also people who wipe the excess butter/marmite/jam from the knife back on to the edge of the container - argh!!!

    Lori - haha very funny, clever clogs!
