30 Days of Blogging Honesty (+1 Dare) – Day 25

“My biggest pet peeve that has nothing to do with blogging, being online, computers, or anything else related to the Internet is…”

Honestly this post can go on for a while, I have quite a few.  It’s hard to narrow down what my “biggest” pet peeve is, but I’ll at least share my bigger ones with you guys.

My first one is people being inconsiderate on the bus.  I take public transit all the time, so it’s something I see a lot.  When I say being inconsiderate, there’s a big lump of things that go under that.  The first being is when people sit on the aisle seat and put a bag next to the window seat.  This doesn’t always bother me, but when the bus starts to get busy, and these people don’t allow for another person to sit down, it really gets under my skin.  I understand that sitting next to strangers can be a bother for people, but it’s really rude when people are standing on the bus and you are being a selfish jerk and won’t let someone sit down.  Another thing that bothers me is when someone sits at the courtesy seating up front and don’t move when either an elderly person, a mother with a carriage or a handicapped person come on the bus.  I mean, how oblivious do you have to be to realize these people need that space more than you?  Another thing that bothers me is when people leave their trash on the bus, pick up your damn garbage.

Actually, that goes for everything – if you’re out in public and you’re eating something or create a bit of garbage, pick it up.  Do you go to someone’s house and leave it a mess?  If so, you’re a pig – but I’m sure no one who comes here does that.  It just bothers me when I see like 16-year-old girls and boys and they’re eating at the mall, and they leave the table a disaster.  If I did that when I was 16 and my parents saw me, I’d get a slap upside the head for being a disgusting, inconsiderate, dick.  It’s not just teens I see doing it, but lots of people.  I mean, how lazy do you have to be to not walk two feet and throw out your coffee cup in the trash or to clear your tray at the mall?

My last one is people being on their phones all the time.  I’m not talking about people who are alone on their phone, but rather when you’re out with a group of people and someone won’t keep their hands away from their phone.  It doesn’t bother me if someone responds to a text or something, but more when someone’s playing a game while we have a conversation, or are constantly responding to text while trying to have a conversation.  This doesn’t really happen much with me, thankfully, cause my friends are awesome – but sometimes it happens at school.  And even with people I really know well, it doesn’t always bother me either, I guess it all depends on the person and the situation.  I guess it just bothers me more when people don’t read social cues to know when it’s appropriate to play on their phone and when not to.  Like I said, I see this more at school, like people playing on their phone in class or while we’re trying to do group work.  And I’m a culprit too – I’m trying to get out of my phone habits!

Yeah, I have a lot more pet peeves, but those are probably my biggest ones.
