Oh my goodness, pet peeves!!! I think some days my irritations are much more than others. I don’t know if that is because of the weather, my sleep the night before, my illness. I would say all of those combined. Anyway, pet peeves truly are annoyingly frustrating!!
Are you sound sensitive? If you are you know exactly where I am coming from. There are sounds during the day that drive me cuckoo! At work if someone is quietly tapping their foot it aggravates the hell out of me. If a clock is ticking I want to take the batteries out. Commotion noise is awful as well. Hahahaha just thinking about it is not a good thing!!
There is another noise out in this world that is awful. I won’t describe it but suffice it to say I get immediate flashbacks to my abuse as young girl. 40 years later I cannot “undo” this sound-memory from my life. It is actually a PTSD type reaction. Anger and sickness is what I usually feel from this. Maybe someday I will be able trash this sound as a pet peeve.
Ok chalk – yes CHALK. I CAN’T HANDLE IT!! How it looks, how it sounds, its smell, on and on and on! I really don’t know how I got this weirdness about chalk but it sure is strong. Even thinking about I get the shivers!!!! Let’s not think about it.
Did you know there are lists for pet peeves? Huffington Post has a list of 76!! I decided not to look at it because I didn’t want to add to my own personal list!!
I’m sure I have more pet peeves, but I don’t really want to think about them. This is part of managing my mental health that I need aware of: understand that I have pet peeves and irritations, but not necessarily get wrapped up in how they affect me.
Share with me some of your irritations – if you dare!!!
