Today I’m going to post an answer to a question that Kym asked back when I wrote that Ask Me Anything Post. If you are reading Kym’s blog this week, you know that she is asking questions of us every day . . . so it just feels right that I should answer her question to me this week, too.
Her question was: what is your biggest pet peeve. I’ve thought about this a lot and, as it turns out, I’ve identified three.
- Having someone tailgate me. It irks me to no end and, frankly, makes me slow down even more. Listen. I’m a good driver and I (mostly) obey the speed limit. When I’m not obeying the speed limit it’s because I’m going over it, not under it. So if you’re tailgating me . . . back off.
- Rewinding live television. Dale does this all.the.time when he’s watching the news and it drives me crazy. First of all, it’s the news and whatever story they are sharing they will probably share again in about 10 minutes. And second of all, just don’t. Really.
- Using the expression making memories. I see this a lot on social media and it just feels . . . fake to me. Like, are you doing this because you want to do it and it’s fun OR are you doing it because it’s special or cool and you want to show it off? I think it’s much better to just . . . live your life. There are highs and lows that you are going to remember no matter what and you don’t need to share them on social media to make that happen.
So. Those are my 3 biggest pet peeves. I hope I didn’t offend any of you! Honestly, the truth is I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about any of these things.
The only thing that really burns my ass is a flame about 3 feet high. (Thanks to Miss Mona, played by Dolly Parton, for that one.)
