To me, pet peeves are my excuse to gripe about something. I need to gripe now and then just to help get over the grumpiness that will set in IF I don't gripe.
Pet peeves are things that aren't annoying enough to get me angry. They're just bothersome things that I know won't ever change so I just have to either avoid the peeve or if that's not possible, then I have to accept them as being bothersome and deal with it.
Every stinking time I go to Walmart, the deodorant aisle is always full of people. What the heck is the attraction with deodorant? If you go to Walmart, just stand at the end of the aisle and do some people watching.
That's what I did the other day, simply because there were so many people in there staring at deodorant that I couldn't get in to get mine.
While people watching, I discovered that just about all the people standing there were confusing the deodorant aisle with the perfume aisle.
People were actually taking the lids off the bottles and sniffing. What the heck?
I can't understand why deodorants need to have a scent anyway. I always buy the unscented. I have scented soaps, scented shampoos, conditioners and lotions. I don't need anymore scent added to those scents, especially not an armpit deodorant scent.
Apparently though, I'm the only one there in the Walmart deodorant aisle that feels that way.
Do we really want to respond to a "you smell so nice, what's that scent you're wearing?" with a " oh, that's my Soft & Dry! It's called "Passion Flower", you should try it!".
Oh, I feel so much better now that I've expressed my sincere displeasure about the Walmart deodorant aisle!
I feel so much better that I'm going to share with you a really fun driving tip.
When out driving and an impatient driver happens to blow his/her horn at you for some stupid reason? All you have to do in response is excitedly wave and smile at the horn blower...giving the impression that you know him/her. This instantly confuses the hornblower. Their reaction is just so precious and you drive away with a big smile because you've totally messed with this guy's/gal's head.
Oh, the fun!
Ok, now it's YOUR turn. Feel free to share one of your own pet peeves. Get it off your chest and we can laugh about it together.
Happy Pet Peeveless day everyone!
