@happyface:  My pet peeve is when people on the train/subway/bus or any type of public transportation insist on listening to music on their headphones at a level where I can hear every. single. note. Listen up people! It’s called a personal listening device for a reason, because only you should be able to hear it! Not to mention the damage it’s doing to their eardrums. Sheesh!

And on that note, people who insist on having loud, screaming conversations on their cellphones on any type of public transportation. I know it’s important to you, but I really, really don’t want to overhear your problems.

I think I read somewhere that the reason why you can’t just tune out cell phone conversations is that since our brains are only listening to one side of the conversation the brain will pay double the attention to figure out the gist of the conversation. Cool, but dammit brain, I want to ignore this…

Phew. End Rant.

Solution: I’m not sure. I don’t know if there is aplausible one so my personal one would be to win the lottery so I no longer need to commute to a job. Not likely, but I can wish right?

Pet Peeve: People who have no spacial awareness while shopping. Come on, you’re at Costco and you have a giant cart full of stuff and you’re going to have a conversation with someone while completely blocking the entrance/exit to the aisle? Really? Or you’re so busy looking oogling the 50 lb bags of flour that you push your cart right into me as I try to reach for something on the second shelf? Arg!!

Solution: I’m only going to Costco on weekday mornings from now on. Fewer people = less chance to get annoyed/run over 😛

MY PET PEEVE: is people flashing their lights at you, driving up your bum, and overtaking honking their horns when you are DOING THE SPEED LIMIT!!!

SOLUTION: a giant spatula under your car that picks up and harmlessly flips rude drivers off the road 🙂

PET PEEVE:  People on my Facebook who make multiple, annoying, lame, and generally uninteresting posts.

SOLUTION: Hide them from my newsfeed or delete them.

Well, that was easy! 🙂

 ETA: @Scottish_lassie:  hahaha the spatula!
