It drives me slightly crazy when people mispronounce the word mascarpone. (The Italian cream cheese.)

It’s not “MAR-sca-pone.”

The first half of the word, “mascar,” rhymes with NASCAR. Or think of “mascara.” The letters are in the exact same order.

The second half of the word has two syllables: po-neh. Almost like “pony.”

Yes, it’s a foreign word. But English is full of foreign and once-foreign words. Learning how to say it correctly won’t hurt. If you want to eat it, learn how to say it!

(Oddly, it doesn’t bother me nearly as much when people mispronounce the names of other foreign foods/ingredients/dishes. But that one gets under my skin like crazy …)

When DH can’t seem to push the shower knob back down after he’s done. So, when I go to give DD her bath I get a cold shower dumped on my head! Or worse, I go to take a shower on a day when I don’t plan to wash my hair, then my head is wet and i still have the frizzy hair i was trying to avoid by not washing it, ugh… I love my husband, i love my husband, i love my husband… 🙂

When DH puts the toilet paper roll on the wrong way. The paper should be over, not under!

I absolutely CANNOT STAND when I’m on the phone with someone, and they start talking to someone else that’s in the room.

I do not like the phrase, “Take care.” It just feels so dismissive, lol!

@AB Bride:  I hate when people walk slow in front of me in public places and won’t move out of the way; poor grammar; loud talkers; and many, many more 😛

@Rubbs:  Or when you are on a phone call and two people can clearly see that and decide to have their very loud, abrupt non-work related conversation anyway rather than taking it elsewhere as you are trying to get your work done. Boo!

Putting dishes in the sink. We have limited sink space. Either put it in the dishwasher or on the counter. We have a lot more counter space than sink space, and we don’t even wash the dishes in the sink. The only acceptable time for a dish to be in the sink is if it is soaking.

@Cory_loves_this_girl:  +1!!!!!!!!!!!

When FI picks at his nails. It drives me nuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuts!

When people have the ketchup containers that are designed to stand on the lid, and people turn them upside down. I seriously can’t stand that.

I hate it when people get right up next to me when they are chewing gum. I can’t stand the sound. 

ETA: I also hate it when FH picks at his nails. It drives me nuts, and he picks them to the point where the get infected. It’s gross, but he won’t stop doing it.

At work, it drives me insane when I’m helping a customer, obviously having a discussion and another customer walks up and cuts the first customer off to ask me a question, and then gets pissy when I don’t answer their question immediately. ESPEcially when there are three other employees standing around wtih nothing to do. Ask one of them!

People who walk really slow and then speed up when you try to go around them bug me too, or at the grocery store and someone’s cart is in the middle of the aisle and they seem oblivious to the people trying to get past them.
