First, I don't intend to turn this into a negative blog post. I've got pet peeves just like everyone else. It's March 1st, it's cold outside and I'm running late. I've had this post in the wings so today's the day I'm using it. Maybe one of your pet peeves is reading other people's pet peeves. LOL (Laugh out loud!) Oh, that's another pet peeve of mine ... text language. I'm trying to get with the times but it's hard.
Okay. So, if I had to pick my top pet peeve it would be ..... well, it's hard to choose. But I think the one that burns my butt the most is when we go motorcycling and try to fill up our bikes and the credit cards won't work. Shell stations are the WORST for this. I understand the computer thinks maybe it's a stolen card when we have to fill up 6 times in one day, but that's how it is. My husband's bike takes a different test of gas than mine does so we're both using the same card literally 6 times a day sometimes. Solution (cuz that's what I'm about): someone suggested I get one of those pre-paid credit cards. What an awesome idea! I'm going to try it this summer.
Uh oh, I'm on a roll now. Park Fees! Really? So, you're telling me a nice family living on an extreme budget has to pay $5 to park their car so they can take their family for a picnic at the park.? Or, pay $5 so we can stop and use a restroom out in the middle of nowhere. Or, stop to take a picture? Solution: roll on by those parks that charge day fees.
Solicitors: I put a tacky, bright pink sign on my door. Problem solved.
What's your biggest pet peeves? Come on, I know you have some. Give 'em up!
