Counting Sheep In The Theater

Friday, April 30, 2010

  Have you ever gone to the movies with someone who sleeps during the film, and afterwards expect you to regurgitate everthing they missed...Why buy a ticket and waist your money? Just wait until it comes out on DVD or demand. The slightly lit autitorium and comfortable seating can tempt even the strongest to being subdued into a sleepless dream state, but why ruin the movie experience for others and subject them to lisiten to your constant loud snoring. While were on the subject...let me take a moment to mention those who talk during the movie. How many people watched a film with motor mouth seating behind you. Have you ever just wanted to stable there mouth shut instead you don't say anything in the hopes of seeing someone else doing it first. Leave the scripting to the actors. Don't create your own storyline. :)

Write down some of your movie pet peeves in the comment link below.

Leave a brief message after the tone!

The other day I heard my dad make a phone call in another room. I could hear his muffled voice through the wall as he said what he had to say to the person, and after about 4 or 5 minutes he went silent. About 30 seconds later I heard him say something that completely blew my mind... "It's me again, I guess your voicemail cut me off." He was on the phone with this poor person's voicemail the entire time!!! Seriously Dad? In this technological age where entire hard drives can be stored on a microscopic chip and voicemails no longer require cassette tapes with a 30 second time limit, you should NEVER for any reason leave a message so long that you run out of time. A simple "Hey, it's ___. I'm calling regarding ___. Give me a call back when you get this." will do!! After listening to these messages I want to throw my phone out of a window because I am so annoyed. So please leave a BRIEF message in the comment box below if you share my frustration on this issue... "beep." 

Pet Peeve #23: Ridiculously long voicemails!

I'll do it myself next time

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

The purpose of making the trip to the grocery store is to restock on items which you are low or have no more of. But when the person bagging the groceries can't get it right than we have a HUGE problem. First we have those grocery baggers who use a bag for every single individual item that you have. I don't need to take twenty grocery bags home with me i'm sure that we can fit my things in a lot less bags then that. Let's take it easy on the environment as well. Then we have the problem which is the opposite of this when they fill my bags with way too many items and you guessed it. They rip on me when im trying to carry them and im left picking up my items which are rolling all over the place. I don't feel like recovering a fumble like in football with my own food. No thank you. And last but not least, the grocery baggers who put my shampoo or soap together with the food. It must be an honest mistake i suppose, either that or someone is trying to potentially poison me.

Have you ever walked through a crowded area, such as a mall, and the person/group in front of you makes an immediate stop? Are you in your own world where no one else exists? What a great world it must be!! Malls are crowded enough as is and we definitely don't need an idiot, or two, stopping the flow of traffic. Here's an idea...why don't we take that little piece of membrane embedded inside your skull, veer right along the side of the wall and call that your destination.

Oh, what a wonderful world it would be!

Pet Peeve #21: Stopping in the middle of flowing traffic

Do you see me talking?

Monday, April 26, 2010

I can 't recall how many times I've been interrupted while I was clearly using the phone. At times I thought it was only a work issue. In actuality, it's an anytime of day, anywhere, issue. The best times are when I'm at work, sarcastically speaking. As if I'm not bombarded with enough calls, from God knows who, it's my surrounding "admirers" that just can't get enough of me. Their pent up questions can't wait, literally, to be released into my obviously available ONE ear. At this point, I have a few options, and all but one is what I normally choose to do. I stare at my "admirer" and point to the large object attached to my ear which we call a phone, and mouth "on- the-phone." Some people mouth "sorry" and patiently wait, some will leave a note and walk away and some obnoxious people choose to rant to me anyways! Hi, my name is "I'm not on the phone, it's just for show, please interrupt and chat with me."

Pet Peeve #20: trying to talk to me when I'm on the phone


Sunday, April 25, 2010

Everyone that plays or has played sports know that there is always going to be a trash talker among the group. The one who brags when he or she does anything right even if its the smallest of things like making a little pass here and there or even if the ball bounces off their face and it goes the right way they will take all the credit in the world. "I meant to do that". or "It's all part of the show". And for everyone else's sake you better hope that the trash talker is losing because you will never hear the end of it. Left and right they will ALWAYS find something to say to put down the other team. I guess if your on the trash talker's team your safe unless you try and yell at them for doing something wrong. But don't worry, defeat the trash talker and enjoy the sweet sound of silence after the game is done and everyone is walking off the field or court. Unless your wearing earplugs while playing, the only way to shut them up is by defeating them. Better get ready.

Pet Peeve # 19: Trash Talkers

Copy Cat

Saturday, April 24, 2010

While on my way to a friend's birthday party, I discovered my latest pet peeve...copy cat's. How many people have dealt with the traditional copy cat? These are people who imitate/mimic/mock others ideas and creativity. This is what my friend did when I bumped into her last week. Previously we ended up meeting at a charity fashion show event in San Francisco, California. I was wearing a short pink dress that I got on sale from Nordstorm's. She began making comments saying how beautiful it was, and asking me how much it costs. I told her where I got the dress from not thinking that she might one day go and actually buy the same exact dress, but to my surprise a week later I seen her with the same dress. I mean she could have at least bought it in a different color. You can bet that I won't do that again... Can anyone relate to what I went through? Have you ever had a copy cat?

Pet Peeve #18 - She's wearing my damn dress!!!

Rude People

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Who has been a cashier or in a customer service job. Well if you have been or currently are, I'm sure you will be able to relate to this.

Imagine this, you are a cashier and a very interactive cashier who likes to have conversations with your customers. One customer who is purchasing a tent which they have many questions about. You are answering their questions and also asking more to discover more about their purchase. In the middle of your conversation their phone rings and they answer it right away cutting you off. From this moment on they talk on the phone, paying no attention to you and waving for you to just continue and finish the transaction. How rude is that... Don't you hate it when 1. you are having a conversation and the customer answers their phone 2. the customer walks up on their phone and 3. a customer ask a question and you go to answer but their phone rings and they walk away. How rude can people be!!!

Pet Peeve # 19: People who continue to talk on the phone while you are trying to help them

You're not the champ

I’m sure you’ve met a friend or a certain person claim they can drink a crazy amount of alcohol and you just don’t believe them. Actually, some are quite impressive their digestive system seems to not be human and their somewhat amazing I might say. But when they start getting ridiculous and claim to drink 20 pints a night now that irks me! I have met some people give out a crazy number before but over on fark.com their saying that one in ten British drinkers can consume 20 pints a night. One in ten!? Maybe more like ten total in all of England would be a little more believable. Their making it seem like the neighbor, the mailman, the elementary school teacher, the doctor, the grandmother, and the little girl next door all are more than capable of drinking 20 pints a night. There’s no need to over exaggerate on the amount of alcohol that you can consume. You don’t get medals, trophies, or special awards for being able to do this nonhuman trait. I know their British but still….. Let me know if you agree with me or if im just plain wrong.

Pet Peeve # 18. " people who claim to drink an insane amount of alcohol"

I want to die!!!

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Have you had a haircut you didn't like? Well if you answered no to this question please send me your hair styler number but if you answered yes then you understand how frustrating it is when you get a bad haircut. At least for girls hair is very important so when you get a bad haircut you feel so frustrated you want to die thinking it will never grow back again. But what really upsets me is when you go to a hair salon for the first time, the hair styler charges you $60 and when you tell her you want certain style she starts asking you a bunch of questions trying to change your mind. And you find yourself thinking come on b... I'm paying you $60 for this haircut why don't you just do it the way I want.... o.k. finally you agree to do it the way she is telling you to do it and is the worst hair cut you have ever had. Well that has happened to me twice and I just wanted to scream and tell her to go back to cosmetology school and tell her that I am not going to pay for it....Well I end up paying and not screaming but I go home and cry for the rest of the day :(

Pet Peeve # 17 : Bad haircut

So if you had this experience please share or if you have good tips on how to avoid a bad haircut please do so I think is something all women can learn from it!!!

Slower traffic, KEEP RIGHT

Monday, April 19, 2010

We have several lanes on the freeway for a purpose right? Well, I'm wondering who in their right mind would get into their far left lane otherwise known as the  "fast lane" only to drive below the speed limit. Hello Mcfly!? There are 3 lanes to your right in perfect position to serve your less than average driving speed habits. We would all LOVE for you to switch that lane and be on your slow and steady way.  Also, do you ever look in your rear-view mirror and see that you are holding up 5+ cars because you can't push the pedal to the metal? Let's make life a little bit less stressful for all of us and MOVE, bitch!

Pet peeve #14-slow drivers in the fast lane


It's called an appetizer for a reason...

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Don't you hate it when your out to eat at a restaurant and you feel your whole dining experience is being rushed. Well, this happens all the time to me when I go out for dinner. I am the type of person who likes to order a starter salad or appetizer to start my meal. They are starters for a reason and it drives me crazy when they appear on my table minutes before the meal. When they arrive minutes before the meal, I am forced to eat my salad or appetizer quickly to prevent my food from getting cold. When this happens in restaurants, it off sets my meal and the whole experience is not as enjoyable.

Does anyone else ever feel this way?

Pet Peeve #13: Being rushed through your dining experience

Move people, move

Do you know what Fast-Track means? Well I believe it is obvious, but some people still don't get it. Fast-track lanes are supposed to be of course FAST but people still don't know that or are afraid of these lanes. Well I don't really know whats wrong with people who almost stop at the Fast-track lane as if they were paying. Don't they realize they can cause an accident? This lane is supposed to be 25 mph and these people also create traffic specially at 7:30 am when everyone is trying to get to work...So please people if you use the fast-track lanes make sure you know you don't have to stop at the toll "to pay".

Pet Peeve # 12: People who still don't get it

Why Did You Ask Me That?

Friday, April 16, 2010

Has anyone fallen victim to the dumb question disease? This abnormal illness is highly contagious but occurs only among the mentally challenged. We've all seen it. We've all experienced it in one way or another. It's the questions that are so blatantly obvious that you wonder if the person your interacting with is intellectually dwafed. Maybe you've been the perpetrator of the disease and said something so amazingly retarded that you did not realize it until after the comment was made. Wishing that if only I had a time machine to go back in time I would tell myself not to say that. I will personally admit that I have had my share of brain farts in the past, but in this one particular situation it wasn't my fault and when it happend it really disturbed me. Last week I ended up driving 33miles/hr in a 25mph residential zone. Speeding in the hopes of arriving to class on time to take my chemistry final. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to class on time because I got pulled over by robocop. Now I do realize that it was my fault for speeding...you break the law, you pay the consequences, but why waist my time in asking me questions you already know the answers to. When he walked up to my car he asked me "ma'am did you know you were speeding". At that moment I'm thinking to myself of course I know...I'm obviously in a rush to get somewhere.
Has anyone else had a similar experience???

Pet Peeve #11: Dumb Question's

Mind Your Own Business!!!!!!

Thursday, April 15, 2010

While driving to work thinking about what my pet peeve for today was going to be... the perfect thing happened and it came to me!!! I just merged onto the freeway on my way to work and everything was looking perfect. I had 15 minutes till I needed to be at work, traffic was flowing perfect, it even looked like I would have time to stop at Starbucks and then suddenly.... everything came to a sudden stop for no reason at all. Now traveling in stop and go traffic at 2 miles an hour my idea of getting tea before my long day at work flew out the window. There was no reason this should be going on. Traveling at this speed for about a half of a mile frustrated I discovered the answer... A stalled vehicle with a flat tire pulled to the side accompanied by a tow truck and a CHP car. Really I just sat in traffic for 10 minutes, am now going to be a few minutes late to work for a car with a flat tire!!!!!!!!!! Don't you hate it when people can't mind there own business and mess up your day.

Pet Peeve #10: Rubberneckers

I Don't Care!

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

So last week I walk into a Starbucks to get a drink and sit down to relax a bit while drinking it. When all of a sudden, this guy that's next to me starts typing really loud and is also reading out loud everything that he is typing in. You can't be serious is exactly what I'm thinking. It seemed that he was writing his own blog well now I'm putting him in one. NOBODY went to Starbucks to listen to some random guy ramble about his blog or to know the thoughts that are running through his head. I felt like doing several things to the guy. Such as, grabbing his laptop and slamming it to the ground but instead all I could legally do was get up and walk away from where I was sitting. I'm sure many other people have experienced something similar to what I did last week. So now is your chance to let us know!!!!!

Pet Peeve # 9: "Annoyance at Starbucks"

mmm smells good!!!!

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Imagine this, you are sitting in a class trying to pay attention to the professor as he lectures. It is 6:30 pm and you are tired and hungry. You then start to smell something delicious. You turn around and you see that the person sitting behind you is enjoying some delicious pasta. Then , you go crazy thinking you want to ask the person to share the pasta with you or you start thinking you want to ask her to put her food away because the smell bothers you. Well, of course you get distracted and you start daydreaming about food. My point is that people should not bring smelly food to class because it can make you hungry or nauseous ;)

Express your pet peeves...

Monday, April 12, 2010

We're bitching, complaining and expressing our pet peeves. Here's your chance to express some of yours to us... Comment below on what your #1 Pet Peeve is.

this guy is peeved

He is obviously a little more than peeved.

That's not fair!

Sunday, April 11, 2010

After a delicious meal, and a great waiter serving you at your favorite restaurant, you start asking yourself how much should I tip my waiter? And of course because it was all perfect you decide to leave a good tip but what happens when it is a party of 6 or more?
Well, this is my story: My family and I decided to have dinner out to celebrate my father's birthday. We decided to try a new restaurant. We made reservations, for 9 people, a week in advance so we would not have to wait. When the day arrived, we decided to meet at the restaurant 15 minutes early. The time finally came and we were all there ready to get our table and our nightmare began!!! We had to wait about 50 minutes to get our table! What drove me crazy during the night was our waiter,who was the most disorganized waiter I have ever encountered. He got our order wrong, took hours to serve us water and bread, and on top of that he was rude. Therefore, I thought to myself he did not deserve a good tip.Well that was not in my hands this time because when the check arrived it had an 18% gratuity that turned out to be close to $80 and all I could say was: That is not fair!!!!

Pet Peeve # 5 : How much should we tip?

You Don't Scare Me

Thugs.....so nineteen nineties, back when the hottest music was coming from Eminem, N'sync, and Britney Spears. You remember those days right? In those days you could wear a jacket three times your size and sag your pants because people would consider you a dangerous person. This is the year 2010, go to the store and buy some clothes that are actually your size. No more borrowing your older brother's clothes because they make you look "gangster." Maybe it's passable if you're 14 or 15 and trying to look intimidating at school. Ok maybe. But when you're in college or out in the working world, and you're still doing it, something is wrong with you. But wait, it gets worse. These "thugs" will be sagging their pants really low and so a person might think to themselves, "man this guy really needs a belt." But then you eventually see that they already have a belt on and its not keeping their pants up. I thought that's what they were for!? Point being, this is the year 2010 and its no longer cool to be having your pants down that low and wearing jackets that are definitely not your size.

Pet Peeve #4: "Thugs"

Teachers Who Do Things At The Last Minute

Friday, April 9, 2010

Picture this, it's the beginning of a new school year and you just declared that this year would be the year that you will recieve A+'s in all of your classes. Time takes its course, it's now time for midterms. You stay up late studying hard for hours, constantly reviewing class notes and studying the book. You take the midterm and the results are in. You end up scoring high marks in all of your classes except for one, business calculus. The following day the professor for calculus announces, "due to everyone's poor grades, an extra credit assignment will be posted this weekend and due that following Monday." You think to yourself, great this is the perfect time for me to not only improve my grade, but to achieve my goal of possibly getting A's in all of my classes, thus increasing my GPA. It's Friday night and the most horrifying thing happens. Your computer will not start for some strange reason, so you decide to go to Kinko's tomorrow morning to printout the assignment from the internet. On Saturday, you arrive to Kinko's only to discover the assignment has not been posted. You check again that afternoon and it's still not posted. It's Sunday, Mothers Day, your day is packed with plans to spend the entire day with family and friends, but you still manage to squeeze in time in the morning to drive to Kinko's. You check and the extra credit assignment is still not posted. It's Monday, you arrive to class feeling extremely upset especially when you find out from fellow classmates that the professor didn't post it until the night before it was due, and all of your efforts leads up to you not turning in the assignment. Has anyone else fallen into the same situation!!!

Pet Peeve #3: Professor's who Procrastinate

Always on Time!

Thursday, April 8, 2010

Today is the big day, that day you have been waiting for for months and months. You got the perfect shoes to match the perfect dress. The night is planned out perfectly, a nice dinner to celebrate your one year anniversary with the perfect man and then off to a special surprise planned your boyfriend. You spend all day getting your nails, makeup and hair done for the special night. You have reservations at your favorite restaurant at 830pm and he is picking you up at 700pm to ensure you arrive with time to spare. Your slip your last high heel on at 645pm, touch up your lip gloss and now your ready for the special night. You are anxiously awaiting the knock on the door, 5 mins goes by... then another 10, 15, mins pass. You glance at the clock and realize its 715 and still no sign of your date. You wait and wait and finally decide to pick up the phone and call him. It rings and rings and he finally picks up, you nervously asked "baby, where are you? We were suppose to leave 15 mins ago," He replies "Ill be there in 10 mins." You think to yourself he better have an amazing reason for being late. Your whole world comes crashing down... you just cant believe he could be late on your year anniversary, a very special day.. how could he take it so carelessly. He arrives 25 mins later with two dozens of pink and red roses in his suite and tie to make up for his mistake, but still how could he be late !!! Dont you just hate it when people are late!!!

Pet Peeve #2: Late people!!!

Do you hear that crying?

Wednesday, April 7, 2010

Imagine this...you're ending one of those stressful week's at work. It's Friday afternoon and you've got dinner plans at your favorite restaurant. You think to yourself, this is just what I need after my douchebag boss gave me more work than humanely possible. The work day has finally come to an end and you make your way to the restaurant to meet your friends. When you walk in, you immediately approach the bar to order your favorite wind-down drink. You get seated, order your meal and finally relax. The meal that you have been anticipating all day has finally arrived. You pick up your fork to take that first bite and are alarmed to hear the excruciating cry of a nearby toddler. You expect the parents to attempt to calm the crying toddler, yet your expectations are crushed!! What seems like eternity passes by, the toddler is still crying, and the parents seem to be happily enjoying their meal.
Did I miss something? Does this bother anyone else?
Don't you just hate that.
