Fun Friday Giveaway

PhotobucketOh Peeps, it is Friday. Woo Hoo!


***UPDATED***

Time is up!! Winner announced in a little bit.


In honor of the end-of-the-week and the fact that Beachy Mimi is feeling good and happy, we have a little giveaway at the Beachy house.



I just need to let you know that I do not like Wal-Mart. The reasons are various and of no importance here. Target is my love. LOVE.



However, Target is not open yet here in Chaos. Not until October. In the meantime, I have no access to a Target gift card. There is a WM just down the street. As BAD as I dislike going in there, I love you, my Peeps.



So, just for YOU, PEEPS, I will enter the dungeon and purchase a $100.00 giftcard to give one of you randomly.



All you have to do (hey, I need some entertainment) is tell me a Pet Peeve. I know everyone has them. Just tell me and leave me a way to get in contact with you.



Giveaway ends at 4 pm EDST. On Sunday.

I hate to say I have several but I do.....People checking out on their cell phones is my biggie right now. They totally ignore the person that is right in front of them and talk on the phone.... RUDE!!I am getting heated just typing about it :(
Girl, thanks for your awesome give-a-ways:) I feel better now!

Mary B said...

Bad cell phone manners and rude people. Plus I live in Michigan and the drivers 50% of the time don't put on their turn signals or do just before turning. Enough :)

Jeni said...

One of my pet peeves is slow drivers. I try not to be a speeder, but in most situations (especially dry, sunny days) I want to go the speed limit. If you're in front of my in your Caddy driving 10 under the speed limit, let me pass!!

JenniferB said...

My pet peeve occurs when I am speaking to people and before I have told them what I want to say, they say "Oh, I KNOW!" and talk over me -- 99% of the time they are totally wrong about what they THOUGHT I was going to say/tell them, but that never stops them.

Dawn in NC said...

What better reason to come out of lurkdom than a WM giftcard (except a Target one, of course!). My biggest pet peeve is and always has been rude or disinterested sales people, cashiers, etc. You know, the ones who act like they'd rather be anywhere else than there, doing anything else than that...or the ones who don't get off their PERSONAL phone call to help me! ARRRGHH! I worked in retail for many years and it irks me beyond belief. I want to scream at them that if they hate their job so much, they need to find a new one!

Dawn in NC said...

Oh yeah...I'm at dwsmith71*at*gmail*dot*com

I guess it's a good thing absent-mindedness isn't my pet peeve!

fortyb4forty said...

Poor manners at the dinner table-slurping, burping and talking with food in your mouth. It makes me sick. I have 3 sons and if they can act appropriately at the dinner table so can anyone else.

Angela said...

When someone starts to day something but then pauses and starts and stops and starts and stops and you could be doing a million other things than listening to a 5 times too long explanation of whatever they wanted to share.

CoftheU said...

Oh Mimi. I have a list. (Some of them are a little OCD, I know.)

When I have to sign something for someone and they say they need my "John Henry". Its John HANCOCK.

When there are two or more light switches to one light and the switch is left up instead of down when its off. I go through the house at night flipping them all down.

People who chew with their mouths open.

When toilet paper is under instead of over.

When the clothes in the closet don't all face the same way.

When people scrape their teeth on their eating utensils.

Dirty dishes sitting in the sink.

When people block the whole aisle with their cart and themselves at the store.

OK. That's enough. I'll stop here.

RR Mama said...

Oh Mimi, you shouldn't have opened that door. I have several but will limit my self to just one. Here you go. When people drive slow in the left lane on the highway. Actually they are driving below the speed limit. I am like move over and let some one pass you.
Have a great day and thanks for going into the dungeon for us!

3girlsmom said...

Pet Peeve - oh the list could go on and on and ON. But I really go crazy over misbehaving children (I mean REALLY obnoxious, not the occasional fussiness) in a public place and mom/dad does nothing about it, being late without a bona fide reason, and people who always point out the negative in a situation.
Makes me crazy. What would cure that? a $100 gift card, of course!!!!
BTW, Snoop Dog is a rapper.

franticallysimple said...

Excessive texting. C'mon people! How can you type and drive?
I have even seen people texting during church!
heidi[at]franticallysimple[dot]com
ps: You may enjoy this little post of mine about Wal-mart. http://www.franticallysimple.com/2008/06/11/a-simple-little-project/

BTW shame on me - self promoting in comments is another of my peeves.

Fuschia said...

You do know that I posted on my pet peeve yesterday?
But... I'll give you another peeve (my pet is saved for the blog :), when PUBLIC SPEAKERS mispronounce words! Like: irregardless instead of regardless; exscape instead of escape; axe instead of ask; drawl instead of draw...I'll stop there, my heart rate is rising!
Thank you for the give-away, and the trip into enemy camp to get it ;)

Drama Mama said...

Just one-are you srue???
Okay, most of mine revolve a 12 year old adolescent that says he is related to me-
When he leaves food wrappers and drink cans up in his room- He knows good and well he is not supposed to eat upstairs cause like ants follow food- and It gets on my last nerve when I find food particles on the floor and under the bed!

Heather said...

OH, One Pet Peeve? Surely, you jest?

I have made entries in the past on this very topic.

BUT-

The one that popped in my head straightaway was when I open a cabinet, the fridge, a drawer--whatever, and things are blatently shoved in; not put back in it's assigned location.

We start school in two weeks. That card would come SOO in handy.

Also, I will out myself now and comment on a regular basis. ;)

Org Junkie said...

Great giveaway! One of my pet peeves is no name post it notes. They don't stick and it drives me crazy!!

Stefani said...

If I had to choose just one pet peeve it would have to be finding an empty cereal, granola bar, etc. box in the pantry. I (almost) have my husband trained to remove them so that I know when I need to restock, but I absolutely cannot stand grabbing the box only to find nothing in it!

Thanks for the awesome give away! I agree on the Target/WM thing too. Unfortunately, WM is only 5 min away and Target is 25!

Alicia said...

Oh, I have several. To keep up with the "theme" of the WM giveaway, I will give you a few of my pet peeves about shopping at WM:

the rude people who act like they own the store--the ones who refuse to move out of your way even though you have "screamed" "excuse me!" a thousand times....and the people who clearly see you coming down the aisle but then turn their carts at the last minute to block your path.

as an added bonus...I can't stand it when kids rollerblade or skateboard in the store. Seriously, people! The store is not a park. And where are their parents?!

Ok, that's enough for now. Even though my list is lengthy.

The Wade's said...

I have tons..my biggest one right now is when I go to pay at the pump when I am getting gas for my car and after pumping it tells me that I have to go INSIDE to get my receipt. Ugh. I paid outside for a reason!!!

My email is auflag(at)yahoo(dot)com

Robin said...

Oh Beachy Mimi....My pet peeve is a fold over sandwich. I can't eat one or see one or let my children and grandchildren eat one in my presence..The reason is the bread is so thick, it makes me gag..I hate even thinking about them..Happy Day...Robin

Peggy said...

Bad manners and a lack of respect for other people are at the top of my list of pet peeves. It takes so little effort to treat other people well and sure makes my day go better.

Beth said...

Like most everyone else, I have plenty of pet peeves... but the one that bothered me significantly yesterday is a published book with typos in it. There were 3 errors in one chapter in the book I finished yesterday. Where's the editor? The proofreader? Books aren't cheap these days... so I at least want one that's grammatically well-written.

Lisa said...

At the top of my list, possibly because I face it on a daily basis, is when I tell someone (hub)that there is something on their lip, or just next to their lip and rather than brush it away, they give it a lick. Cute when you're three, but any older than that, not quite so much.

We are THAT Family said...

My pet peeve today is insurance companies who want you to pay before you owe 'just in case' and then they will refund you.

Yeah, whatever . . .

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Only four out of 44 checkout lanes open at WalMart.

I avoid WalMart at all costs, but I would brave the placed if I had that gift card. Hey, sometimes we just have to sacrifice.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Call waiting. I'm not a big phone talker the way it is, but I think that it's rude to make the first person wait while I take the second all. But that's just me. :)

You're awesome!

Patty said...

People who answer their cell phone at a play or a movie or church and then proceed to talk on it. Turn it off. And if you forget, at least know we don't want to hear your conversation!

chickadee said...

gritty sheets. but i'm the one who eats in the bed and it's really hard to stay mad at myself.

The Fritz Facts said...

I have pet peeves...but the biggest one are parents that do not look after their own children at playgrounds, and then get mad when someone tells them to knock off the bad behavior. Drives me nuts!

I also hate the people that talk on their cell phones loudly. Not everyone needs to hear you!!

Thanks for the wonderful giveaway!!

Kayla said...

One of my biggest pet peeves is when you are driving down the road and the lane beside you is about to end. The person in that lane then keeps driving like it isn't and has to cut you off or go onto the grass to get out of the lane that has ended. Okay, okay...I have a tiny bit of road rage. =) My email address is dystinee24@gmail.com.

Sarah N. said...

My biggest pet peeve is people interrupting you when you are talking. Everyone I hang out with seems to talk over the top of each other. Ugh. I usually just stop talking and wait for everyone to hush! Thanks for a great giveaway!

willblogforshoes said...

Sentence fillers are my pet peeve... you know nonsense words that people use to fill a sentence... like "yada, yada, yada". I mean, if you can't use real words, don't speak.

Wow! I feel like a million times lighter now! :-)

Happy weekend!

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Wal-Mart is my pet peeve! :-) No likey.

And since we recently moved away from Wal-Mart territory back into God's country where there is a Target on every corner, I'm happy to say you don't have to enter me in this contest, Mimi. If I don't have to, I will never enter a Wal-Mart again.

courtney said...

Oh, I have so many...and before I even went to the comments section, cell phone manners was what popped into my mind first. I could write a whole list of cell phone pet peeves, but I'll list one of my biggies....talking on the phone in a PUBLIC RESTROOM!!

Stacy said...

People who don't know how to merge...take turns people...8 cars should not jump into one spot...I'm a nice driver...but not THAT nice...LOL

Autumn said...

You would need a bigger page for all of mine! But one - traffic weavers. You know, that guy that weave ferociously in an out of traffic to wind up a WHOPPING car length ahead of where he strated. OOooh that guy gets my goat.

Headless Mom said...

Pet peeve- I have a million, but California drivers stink. Stink, I tell you.

The gift card would be great for outfitting my daughter's college dorm room. Thanks for the opportunity!

How was the book?

ashlynn310 said...

my brother and I share a bathroom...it disgusts me to no end when he clips his toenails in there and they can't seem to make it to the trash! YUCK!!!!!

Living with 3 teenage boys - my pet peeve is the toilet seat and the surrounding floor - enuff said, eh?

My biggest pet peeve is when co-workers call in sick on a Monday or a Friday (especially when there is a BIG project to be completed).

KCAimee said...

Oh, perfect timing! Yesterday I saw somebody flick a cigarette out their car window I swear I thought to myself, I need to do a blog post about my pet peeves with that being #1 - people who throw cigarettes and other trash out their vehicle windows...it makes me SO MAD!!!

KCAimee said...

I don't want to be a comment hog, but I have to go with one more...I hate to see people talking on cell phones while they're being helped by cashiers in the grocery store check-out, fast food drive-thru, etc. It feels so disrespectful to me.

And, I forgot to give my email: kcaimee at gmail dot com

Nancy said...

Found you from The Roost. Besides all the driving and cell phone pet peeves.... It really bugs me when a restaurant waiter/watress asks me if I need change from the money I have put with my ticket. And usually, they don't even look at the amount of $ I've put down. What if it's a $100 bill for a $20 ticket??!!

If I don't need change I will tell them, saving them another trip to the table. Otherwise, it's like taking a tip for granted.

And just for the record, I am a gracious tipper, especially when the service is excellent!

Anonymous said...

Petty I am....but I don't like to see a lady's purse/handbag/whatever on the table at a restaurant.....cause who KNOWS where that purse/handbag has been?

Only choosing one is torture- but people with no table manners will be at the top of the list...today.

Lisa said...

Stupid drivers has to top my list. And to top it off they make me say naughty words in from of my children. ;P

Nicole said...

My pet peeve is whining. From anyone. Any age. Any time. Any place.

(However, an occasional rant is acceptable.)

:)

p.s. you are the blogging equivalent of Oprah when it comes to giveaways!

Diane said...

What an awesome giveaway! I love Target too but get stuck going to Wal-Mart a lot. Well, I have TONS, I repeat TONS of pet peeves. The top five are, people who don't use turn signals, people who drive too slow, people yapping on cell phones when they're driving and acting all dumb then give you a little sign like it's your fault that they can't drive, whining, and people who just won't say what's what and instead misrepresent things (at work). Thanks so much for letting me vent!

Bethany said...

As wrong as it is, I'm quite peeved when people disagree with me. My sinful little nature says, "It's my way or the highway." Not that it's right. And not that I condone it. But it is true.

Beth said...

People stopping their cars in the middle of the street to talk to each other. When their cars are facing different directions. It happens A LOT in my little town. Grr.

Oh, and I have a thing for grammar. And mouth noises. I have issues.

linda said...

LOVE TARGET!! My pet peeve is people who are dishonest. Is it really that hard to be honest and truthful? I don't think so.
prlin@suddenlink.net

Heather said...

You are very generous! My biggest pet peeve would have to be smacking! It literally grates on my nerves like nails on a chalkboard. My other major pet peeve is slow drivers in the fast lane. If you know you are going to drive 10 UNDER the speed limit...get OVER! Thanks for your generosity! Have a good weekend!

Robin said...

Pet Peeve #1 - people picking their noses at stop lights. Really, could you please not do that?
prinlintx@yahoo dot com

Karen said...

I can't stand it when people walk around in stores yakking on their cell phones so loud that the whole world has to hear their conversation. Ticks me off more than anything. I always want to grab the cell phone from them and stomp on it!

Loving Our Homeschool said...

Oh, I have so many, many pet peeves.

One biggie is when a store advertises on their outside sign and puts up a price that is less than a dollar and uses a cent sign AND a decimal. Uh....that would make the price, oh, say ninety-nine TENTHS of a dollar rather than just plain old ninety-nine cents.

I could go on, but my sweet hubby just said "Dinner is ready!" Gotta love carry-out! LOL

Heather

Kimberly said...

When the car you're behind slows down for green lights.
Calls that keep coming to my cell phone with some weird message about my warranty expiring. I have nothing new enough to have a warranty!!!
Service people whose vocabulary does not include the word "service".
Parents who allow their children to be rude to others.
I know you said "a" pet peeve, but who can stop at just one?

Tiffany said...

Just one Peeve? Is it 100 for each one if my number is picked?:)

~ Leaving Hair in the hairbrush is sick
~ Being elbowed when someone (usually my mom) wants to tell me something and they are sitting right next to me.
~ When someone says "Mine is EXACTLY like it but a tiny bit different".
~ When people don't pronounce things even close to correctly like when the President or a newscaster or anyone else who should know better says Nuk-you-ler instead of Nu-Clear.Or when someone says jewluhree instead of jewel-ree
....

None of them cause me huge amounts of unrest, but they do bother me.

Kari Wright said...

guilt trips.

~ Straight Shooter ~ said...

Oh my my my Mimi...the pain you unknowingly caused! I called my husband, mom and two friends to ask their help in narrowing it down to one! That is sad, sad, SAD. They all agreed though. Apparently I am pushed to extreme peevedom with mouth noises of any kind. slurping, smacking, raspberries, etc.
This was an outstanding give-away! Thank you for making us think.
I am now going to go make a list of the things I love and appreciate though because apparently I don't tolerate quiete a few things well.
I am hoping, like you, a little retail therapy will help tonight with Lover Boy! Have a fabulous weekend.

sphinx63 said...

I would have to say my biggest pet peeve is when the kitchen garbage is full and no one in the house seems to know how to empty it but me. They just keep piling it on top until it is ready to fall out. And I have tried to leave it to see when they would actually empty it, and the only one to do so was my husband. I would also have to agree with you, Target is wonderful!

Meg in Tally said...

My latest pet peeve? ...cheapy toilet paper! Lately, all the stores and restaurants seem to have moved to 1/10th ply toilet paper. How in the world do they think they can save money when us gals have to use 20 times as much?
megntally*at*juno*dot*com

Christi said...

Oh Beachy Mimi. The list is endless. I think I am a bit grouchy today so this might be too difficult for me to narrow down...

Nope...I HATE call waiting. That's it. Satan's creation. Click over and I hang up.

Great giveaway BTW. Thanks!

Tammy said...

Oh how I hate it too, but when you're giving stuff away I'll sign up.

Pet peeve numero uno, rude children! I watched a little girl take pool toys away from another child and the rude child's mom said NOTHING! So I guess make it rude children and their rude parents!

lstrevels said...

I have a few as most people but the worse has to be listening to someone chomp and click their gum

Vicky said...

I used to hate Wal-Mart, and Target will always be my true love, but in the last few months WM has sorta grown on me. I had to go there for something, and I discovered that many of my "issues" with WM had been resolved.
Current pet-peeve... hmmm... solicitors. For all the normal reasons.

Runningamuck said...

Drivers who rule the road; cut in wherever/whenever they like, merge onto the freeway 10 cars behind the beginning of the onramp/freeway junction, drive on the shoulder because they don't want to wait in traffic with the rest of us...

Great giveaway, thanks for the chance to win! =0)

kamewh said...

I can't stand when I call customer service for a simple issue and it is outsourced to another country and no one is able to help me. Very frustrating!

Grammy and Olivia said...

I just came over from The Roost--looks like a fun blog. My big pet peeve currently is people doing a jillion things while they are driving, like eating, talking on the phone, doing hair and makeup--sometimes all of the above at the same time...drives me crazy!!!

Michelle@Life with Three said...

People who walk into a public bathroom on their cell phone, go into a stall, do their business and continue talking. I have seen it happen on several occassions. Just call the person back, already! Honestly, do they really need to hear all that?

Joanne (The Simple Wife) said...

Hmmm...pet peeves? People who say WALA instead of VOILA. It starts with a V, people!

And I'm with you on the Target love, but I do like Walmart too. Great seasonal decorations for not much money! And when we're vacationing in the Ozarks, Walmart is a blog worthy outing!

Kara said...

100.00 gift card? Whoa!! Pet peeve. Pet peeve. hmmm. I'm going to definitely have to say that mine would be the following in no particular order:

People who litter. Hugely wrong. Hugely "I'm above society and the person who has to pick this up for me"

Customer Service people who don't know how to work with a customer and they certainly don't know what SERVICE means!

Lastly - it would be hubby never closing his sock and underwear drawer - every single morning. Just pushing it in is apparently way, way too difficult!

Mari said...

I hate it when I give my kids a chore list in the morning and then when I get home only 2 out of 5 things are done and they say "Oh, were we supposed to do those other ones too?"

I also hate when cashiers are so usy chatting with their co-worker, they've quit ringing up my order.

Mari

Sunny said...

Peeve # one is when people complain about life here in Hawaii.The grass is always greener I guess, but COME ON!

Pattik said...

Hey, Peepone here. Do not like it
when people crunch ice!! Imagine that!Also when
people smack or make their gum click in their mouth. I have a gazillion more just won't go there.
Great give away, you are so generous Beachy Mimi! Didn't comment to be entered, just a gentle reminder on the ice thing! heh heh

Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy said...

I will not hijack your comments with my long, long list. Mispronouncing words is big {acrosT, instead of across etc.)

And parents who let their children misbehave! Great giveaway!

(Popped over from the Queen. BTW)

Pat W said...

I hate women's magazines that promise huge weight loss in a short amount of time then fill the back half of the magazine with recipes (not diet!)

Lori said...

One of my pet peeves is when parents ignore when their kid is doing something naughty to one of my children. I just had a play date where the other kid was hitting my kid and pulling her glasses off her face and the parent just watched and said nothing. They probably won't be invited back!

Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Tracey said...

$100 gift card...WOW!!!
I hate call waiting, cell phones in public places...talking loud....and those who don't use turn signals....UGGHHH!!!

Rebeckah said...

I don't like being on hold for many minutes and then getting connected to someone who doesn't speak English well. It is very frustrating. Thanks for the nice giveaway. Have a happy Saturday. God bless.

ValleyGirl said...

Ugh, just ONE pet peeve?! Hmmmm... I'll say people who don't know how to use merging lanes on the road. Drives me nuts. Among many, MANY other things!!! Which I won't mention here because you only asked for one!

Kristen said...

I, too have many, but I will narrow it down to one. People not returning a phone call. OK, maybe two. People not RSVPing or regretting to a shower/party. Thanks for your generosity!

tam said...

Okay Miss Beachy, here it goes. I can't stand watching a movie or whatever on t.v. when a commercial comes on and blows us out of the room with sheer volume. What is all of that about? I don't mean a slight increase...yall, things shake on the walls and end tables. I feel alot better, thank you. Tam

Sweetanlo said...

I would love to win this! My pet peeves are when people scrape silverware against other silverware, or against their teeth.

The Mom said...

Ugh I hate when guys do that snort-cack-cough-up noise in their nose/throat like they're going to hawk a loogie...and then DON'T...so gross.

Joan said...

Ok, so I'm the one person in the whole U.S.of A. who likes Wal-Mart. Low prices Everyday! :-)
I also like Target. I'm weird like that.
Most of my peeves are related to rudeness.
Top 3 are:
# 3 Rude Drivers!!!URG!!
# 2 No thank you note for the $50 I sent you for your high school graduation! (If any one of my nieces or nephews read this) :-(
# 1 People who WHINE! I hate that.

Momma Jones said...

I hate stickers stuck on merchandise. It is my ultimate pet peeve. Especially when they won't come off without leaving sticky goo all over.

Kristenkj said...

Well, I'm generally not a WM fan, either, but honestly, $100 would buy a LOT of school supplies for my three school aged kids, and diapers for the other little one! So here goes...

I hate it when people mis-pronounce words. Like samwich. It's not a samwich, it's a sandwich. AAAAAAAAAArgh. Or irregardless, or fustrating, or coe slaw. These are not words people!!!

Okay, calming down now. Thanks for the chance to enter!!!

Crystal said...

$100.00.. WOW! At 34 weeks preggo I can think of lots of baby stuff to buy with that!!

My pet peeve (like someone else mentioned) is parents who don't watch their children. I totally understand that children will be children (I have a 2 year old!!) but when a parent doesn't watch them, like say at church or a birthday party and then I feel the need to watch them.... because I mean HELLO, I don't want them to get hurt, run away, beat my kid up, beat someone elses kid up.. well, that gets on my nerves! Let's all take responsibility for our own!
Wow, that felt good to get that out! :)

Edi said...

One pet peeve is folks that are late - all the time. There are people that are consistently late for things - you just know ahead of time they will be late...why can't they see it too and say "hey I'm gonna leave 10 min early"?

Also parents that let their kids run the household...

And people walking their dogs at a park where the dog is supposed to be leashed and they are not and the dogs come running towards me and my young children and pretty much the owner always says "they are friendly, they won't hurt you."

Thanks for the great give-away!

It really gets on my nerves when I'm in a restaurant and the manager comes to my table to ask how the service is. There seems to be a new trend in this regard, and while I know they mean well, I feel as if they're implying that the servers who work for them can't be trusted or something.

The other thing that instantly popped into my head when I read your post is rude cell phone manners! Ever since the invention of this wonderful technology, it seems people have forgotten how to treat one another. I had to smile when I walked into our local Subway and the sign on the counter said, "please end all cell phone conversations prior to placing your order." Finally SOMEONE is taking a stance and laying down a few rules for cell phone usage!

Lydia said...

I have many (ha!) but here are a couple: when someone calls you and asks "who is this?" without introducing themselves OR when people shuffle and don't pick up their feet when they walk!! Thanks for the chance to enter!

Born Blonde said...

Pet Peeves -- how fun!

I can't stand it when people use 'their' and 'they're' wrong. It drives me up the wall! I recognize that the education system has some downfalls but come on! A possessive and a contraction. Good grief.

It bothers me to no end when moms leave their kids at the kiddie pool and then go "lay out" by the big pool. I mean, hello, I know it's only 2 feet deep, but they could bump their heads or fall or run all over the babies! Kids should never be left unattended where water's concerned and you shouldn't expect all the other parents to watch your kids!
Love your blog, Mimi!

PastorMac's Ann said...

Awesome giveaway. We have a WM right down the street although do love Target.

One of my pet peeves is when my kids use a band-aid and leave the trash in the band-aid box so when I open up the band-aid box to get a band-aid it is full of trash! GGrrrrr!

Missy @ It's Almost Naptime said...

Oh, goodness, I did a whole blog post on pet peeves. Just one? Hmmmm.

When you call and get voice mail and can't get a real live person. That makes me MAD.

Especially if you just lost your wallet and need to cancel all your stuff and can't get a person at your BANK. Your BANK. Because they need your account number and you don't have it because hello! You lost your wallet!!

Grrrrr.

I'm okay now.

Janel@Dandelion Dayz said...

hmmm. People that are mean to other people. Disrespectful. Judging. That kind of thing. Just smile and be nice is what I say! :) That's my pet peeve.

We have a beautiful brand spankin' new Super Wal Mart 5 miles from my house. It has renewed my heart for Wal Mart.

Kim said...

My pet peeve is unmotivated, rude, lazy and ignorant clerks. Hello! My being a customer is how you get a paycheck. I am not a bother! I am the reason you have a job!

Woohoo... Let's hear if for pet peeves! Which one shall I pick? I have SEVERAL! Should it be when you purchase something in a drive through and the "clerk/worker" doesn't say 1 word to you... they take your money, they give you your change, they hand you your food and then your off. Not even one single "thank you."

Or should it be when you're looking at something in the grocery store and someone walks right in front of you and starts looking -- completely blocking your view!!!! UGH!

No. I think I'll say a pretty obvious and common one: When my big boy (hubby) and my little boy (son) can't seem to find the hamper. Ever. However, I must say that charging them a dollar every time I have to do it has come in REALLY handy and I've saved up some good amount of dinero!!!! :o)

Smiles!

How about sitting on a wet toilet seat? Man do I hate that! Although I feel a little better about it since I learned that urine is sterile. Thank Goodness!

Since I'm a little OCD only one is hard, but I'll go with the first one that came to mind. My husband wearing his military boots in the house...I don't like shoes in the house anyway, the kids and I take them off at the door, and I just think about those boots being in a men's bathroom. Ugh!

What a great giveaway! Target is my first love, but Wal-Mart gets my business on toiletries and necessities for low prices. Would come in handy for my family of six!

Slow drivers, inconsiderate parents...I could go on awhile!
