Pet Peeves from Paris

Can a girl live in Paris and still have pet peeves?

This one does:

Pens that run out of ink.
Rude waitresses.

Dudes who spit huge slimey wads out car windows (I NEVER see a female do this. Do men have more spit than women?)

People who talk on cell phones while they are doing business with you.

Those who think their mission should also be your mission.

Please, be my guest and add one of your own.

BTW, I live in Paris, IL, not France.
But I've no complaints about that!


  1. I still have pet peeves - probably the one that makes me cringe the most is loud motorcycles. Ugh.

  2. Great post . . . I wonder how many people were picturing Paris, France?

    Rude Chicago drivers are becoming one of my pet peeves.


  3. People who clearly see you coming behind them and let the door slam in your face.

    Irks me.

  4. One of mine is when I am asked for advice and the person they says,"I think I'll do it this way (the way he or she had intended all along). I had a relative who did this on a regular basis.

  5. Slow drivers, missing socks, and loud commercials, just to name a few non-Parisian pet peeves. :)

    Hope you're having a grand time with the grands!

    Love you.


  6. Children who don't say, "Yes, ma'am."

    Just saying:)

  7. Ooo, I love your pet peeves. We'll go with those. About the spitting thing: I hate close-ups of baseball players in the process of spitting. They should bleep it out, visually, like they do nasty words.

  8. Ha ha! I'm chuckling ... I have a spitting husband AND three boys. I'm convinced they were born with overactive salivary glands.

  9. Back here after a couple of weeks and as usual I am smiling while I read your post...:)

  10. People who use the church's little kitchenette area and leave their mugs or glasses in the sink for someone else to wash. Now *that* bugs me!


  11. Teehee...loved the men one. Have a great weekend!

  12. Hi Jen -

    Congrats on reaching 200 Followers!

    Pet peeve: People who don't let you get in a word edgewise!

    Susan :)

  13. People who won't make eye contact! Hate that!

  14. people who automatically assume that because you work for a particular company you want to provide them customer service at church, at picnics, at family reunions, and ad nauseam

  15. My pet peeves? People who think you hate them or think they're stupid simply because you disagree with them. People (including family) who think it's perfectly fine to show up with no notice and bang on the door like they are trying to break in.


Oh, it's YOU! I'm so happy to see you here today, and look forward to reading your comments.
