pet peeves

I am surprised I did not start this list earlier, but I’ve decided to put them in writing. Because I am a crusty old woman. Here are some pet peeves currently on my mind:

People backing into spaces. What the hell? Like when you leave you will be in such a hurry that you can’t spare the 7 seconds it takes to pull out of a space? It takes longer to back into a space at the beginning than it does to pull out at the end. I think that people who back into spaces are incredibly entitled. Yes, that is a huge judgement. Deal with it.

People saying “1am in the morning” or “4pm in the aftenoon”. Either say the “am” part or the “morning” part. Make a fucking choice.

When I am wating at a crosswalk, and the whole street is clear except for one close approaching car. I stand and wait for that car to go by, no biggie, but then they STOP and WAVE ME ACROSS. Who the hell made them crossing guard? Furthermore, now I feel obligated to run across the street instead of liesurely walking, which was why I was waiting in the first place. Fuck.

People wearing CBGB’s shirts. They have no clue what that even means.

More bitterness to come!


One thought on “pet peeves

  1. 1. Backing into spaces is actually safer, since when you leave, you’re facing foward and can spot other cars better. And this from someone who doesn’t drive.

    2. I agree. Redundant. It’s like when someone at the conference I was at this week talked about constructing an “edible food” plant–I was thinking “as opposed to the unedible food plant?!”

    3. That is really annoying. I don’t like that either. Just drive on through if you have a green light. Don’t hold up traffic for me.

    4. I don’t know what CBGB means either and I really don’t care. Perhaps I’ll print up some T-shirts that say YFGW and sell them at $50 a pop.
