My Pet Peeves is a lens that I created to air my feelings about things that drive me crazy. I know that we all have our own Pet Peeves, and this was proved when I added a Plexo module (list with voting) to the lens, and hundreds of you added your opinions on things that made you just see red.
So what really gets my goat?
For a start, those people who refuse to turn off their cell phones when they are in a public place, like a restaurant, or even worse in a movie theater or church, or in a conference or classroom. The constant sound of ringtones interrupting whatever is going on drives you mad.
As for ringtones, that is another of My Pet Peeves. Why can’t the new telephones have normal telephone sounds when someone calls you any more? Why do the telephone companies think that the whole population wants to listen to an extract from a song that they don’t like, or to annoying electronic midi style sounds.
Don’t get me started on bad driving, or people in the USA who can’t understand roundabouts. Please also don’t get me started on bad spelling or grammar, and certainly not on people who give their children silly names.
Well if that hasn’t sparked your interest in my lens My Pet Peeves, nothing will I guess. My Pet Peeves is a highly amusing collection of things from our life that we would rather not put up with, so please drop by, and if you have anything to get off your chest, please add your Pet Peeves to the lists and leave a comment.
