* When you invite someone to a party or some other event and they say something like, "Oh that sounds great, I'll let you know!" and then they will not commit one way or the other and it really kind of seems like they're just waiting for something better to come along, until the day before (or day of) the event they are like, "Oh I can't come, bummer!" Is it so hard to commit to something? I mean, I get that sometimes you have to check your calendar and it might be a few days before you know for sure, and I also get that things come up last minute, but as a general rule it shouldn't take months for you to decide if you want to attend an event. Yes or no. #commitmentphobe
* When someone says "You look SO tired!" Oh well thank you so much. I feel really awesome about my appearance now. #rude
*I've mentioned this one before, but when I'm reading and someone's asks "What are you reading?" I always feel so awkward because it's like what do they expect me to say?? "A book"? Do they want to know the title which will most likely tell them nothing unless it's really well known or they've read it themselves? Do they want a full synopsis of the book? Like what is expected of me in this situation? It's very uncomfortable. #introvertstatus
*"I could care less". Well, ok. Then care less if you want to. Or is that a threat? Like, "I could care less if I wanted to, so watch yourself." Ohhh, you mean you couldn't care less. I see. #sarcasm
*When people feel the need to argue with a complete stranger about something on Facebook. I don't just mean a friendly difference of opinion. I mean the times where someone is having a full blown, name calling, ragey fight with someone they don't even know. I mean what is that? Do they actually feel like they are accomplishing something by doing this? Do they think they're going to change the person's mind via an FB fight? Is it entertaining for them? I'm genuinely curious. #facebookprobs
*"I seen..." It is truly disturbing how many people say it this way.
*When people are on their phone the WHOLE time you're hanging out or having dinner or whatever. I mean looking at your phone a few times is fine, heck, I have to pull out my phone to take pictures of my food a few times #fortheblog, so I get it. But it's one thing to check your phone a few times or take some pics and it's a completely different matter to be scrolling through FB or Twitter or whatever the entire time. Remember back in the olden times when we used to only look at our phone when it was ringing or we got a text message? I'm talking waaaay back, like 2006 or something.
Ok, I'm done complaining. Are any of these your pet peeves? Am I just neurotic? (Entirely possible)
