Pet peeves

So I have several pet peeves, not that I am easily annoyed...but we all have things that annoy us, right? Well here are a few of mine...

  • People referring to getting pregnant as getting "knocked up". It a) makes getting pregnant seem easy, b) it takes away the miracle of conceiving.
  • People referring to pregnant women as "preggers". Again, I think it takes away from the miracle God has intended this to be.
  • Pregnant women complaining of pregnancy symptoms. I would absolutely love to be sick 24 hours a day with morning sickness. Pregnancy puking, headaches, and everything else that goes along with it is much better than not puking and not pregnant. It is really hard for me to have any sympathy for them. I guess I need the Lord to help me work on that.
  • Media and the rest of the world making comments implying that getting pregnant is always easy.

Now some that aren't infertility/pregnancy related...

  • People adding a plural to store names that aren't plural...Ex: "Wal-Marts" It makes me laugh.
  • Drivers not using cruise control! It is made for a reason...use it! I don't want to have to use my brakes!
  • People who don't make up their minds, or won't share their minds, regarding plans..."where do you want to go for dinner?" "I don't care, where do you want to go?" "I don't care." Come on, everyone has some opinions, share them!
  • I have more, but we are headed out of town for the weekend and my husband is literally pushing me out the door!!!

What about you? What are your pet peeves?


  1. Oh no! I almost never use cruise control - it makes me feel like I am not in control. Of course if we go on a road trip, my husband usually drives and he uses cruise control so hopefully we can still be friends :)

    My #1 pet peeve: people complaining about their kids. This past week I asked a co-worker (I don't know her well) how her weekend was. Her response, "Good, except I was stuck inside with 2 four year olds." I was so offended I couldn't think of anything to say. Later I was kicking myself for not telling her that some people would give anything to be "stuck" inside with even 1 child.

    Hope you have a great trip!

  2. I would have to agree with Becky that I can't stand when people complain about their kids. HELLO!!! Another pet peeve of mine is when people dry their hands on kitchen towels and leave them all crumpled on the towel bar instead of folding them neatly again ;-) Ha! Obsessive!! Haha :)

    I left you an award on my blog- it's really fun to do!
