Pet Peeves

While chatting with a friend over a brew or two last night he asked me what my top three pet peeves were. The first two came to mind immediately but I was somewhat stuck in deciding on a third.

Without further ado,

  1. Warm money. When somebody hands you their change that has warmed up in their hands.... shudder

  2. Knife licking. We may be having the most amazing dinner date, but as soon as your tongue goes anywhere near your knife it's all over.

For number three, I didn't want to go for the predictable spitting/not washing your hands/talking loudly on the phone on public transport/bad grammar.... they're just too easy. Perhaps this is a good sign that I'm a relatively easy-going person.

What are your pet peeves/dealbreakers/whatever you'd like to call them?



    When you enter the toilet stall and notice that the toilet paper has not been neatly perforated by the last person but wrenched off, and the remaining toilet paper is crumpled with the impression of their hand.

  2. Gross. I know toilets are shared spaces, but I just don't want to be reminded of that at that particular moment. You know?
