Pet peeves. All of us have a few of them. Here are a couple of mine:
Not putting shopping carts in the corrals. Yes, I know, it's hot/cold/rainy/etc. outside, and the cart corral is five spaces away from you. Too bad. Just too bad. It's not OK in any way, shape, or form to leave the shopping cart a) in another parking space, b) propped crookedly on the island cement and the parking lot, c) just outside the cart corral.
My new "favorite" is people who only have a few bags and don't need the cart to get the bags to the car, so they leave the carts inside. Like this:
And finally, how lazy do you have to be to leave the shopping cart in the parking lot AT ALDI?
Badly parked cars. Cars parked inside the lines, but one side is RIGHT ON THE YELLOW PARKING LINE. Cars sharing two parking spots. Cars parked diagonally, either inside the lines of their own space or across two or more spaces.
Honestly, it takes every fiber of my being to not take pictures and Facebook shame people like this. It takes thirty seconds to repark the car if you're not doing it correctly, so just take the extra time and do it right. Please.
Being late all the time. I admit, I'm one of those people who runs early for just about everything. Running right on time for an appointment makes me antsy, and if I think I'm going to be even two minutes late for something, I call the other person to let them know.
That there are people in the world who are constantly late for everything drives me nuts. Please don't get me wrong--if someone is late a couple of times because they lost track of time, I understand that that happens. That happens to all of us. But I know some people who are late to everything because they just are. It's rude and irritating. It shows me that that person thinks that my time isn't as valuable as their time.
So what are your pet peeves? Let me know in the comments.
