Pet Peeves

3 Comments

For some reason, I have been contemplating pet peeves.  It’s interesting the things that bother me.  Here are a few….

When people quote a Psalm and say the reference is “Psalms 23” or “Psalms 139,” etc.  They are quoting a Psalm.  Therefore, the reference is Psalm 23….Psalm 139.

When Christians take God’s name in vain.  Okay, this is more than a pet peeve.  This really, really bothers me.

When people put pens in their mouths….when both their hands are perfectly free and capable of holding the pen.

The fast food chain is called Chipotle.  Not Chipoltle.

When people say they wrote a blog.  Chances are, unless you are good with computer code, you wrote a blog post, not a blog.

People who don’t use their car turn signals.  Also people who speed.

Intentionally misspelling words for advertising.  Like the “Bedder Mattress Shop” or “Eat Mor Chikin” (sorry Chick-Fil-A).

Sorry, folks….the word is “supposedly,” not “supposably.”

When people clump Europe together.  “Europeans do this/never do this”  “In Europe, they…..”  Europe is big….I’ve only been to two European countries, but I know there is a LOT of diversity in Europe.

This web site was interesting.  Read at your own risk.  You might realize you have more pet peeves than you thought.  😉

What are YOUR pet peeves?
