in the Junk drawer. Mine have small candle lights, rubber gloves, paint brushes, lids to jarred candles, plastic forks, maybe a crawfish claw LOL, all sorts of things.

Like at a casino and you just won $300 and you're on your way to the cashier. Couples walking really slow and taking up the entire place just wandering aimlessly. i just want to say"Do you know where you're going? Because I do." Uggh

If you meant Pet PEEVES...I have many. Here is just one...

Saying " I seen...". That one grates on me like nails on a chalkboard.
My mother stayed up one night talking to my then boyfriend (we were 18, I was from the city and he was from the country. My Mom, my Aunt and my Grandmother were all English teachers...) So he leaves and she just looked at me and said " did he tell you about his truck blowing up?" I said "no." She said, well "He seen it, he knowed it was gonna happen and the sonbitch blowed up." We laughed for years over that.

I don't like being told not to toss my bag in the pile, having someone else handle my trash and then take the bag that I bought because they don't want to buy their own. It's just weird.
It's just gross.

You see them, way up there, but they just sit, and sit, and sit...you can see them looking at you, they had plenty of time to go long before you got close to where they are, but no...they wait until you're right there and then they pull out right in front of you. Stop it!

People who drive 10 under the speed limit and hold up a long line of cars behind them. Yes, we all get it, you have nothing else to do, but the rest of us need to get going.
You would think an 18 wheeler driver would know to get out of the passing lane once he has passed. Nope, they sit there holding up traffic around here (Louisiana) . People do that all the time and they even passed a law about it but nobody takes it seriously.

Oh, and i get where I'm going. I don't hem-haw around. I don't see how people get all the things done in one day that have to be done by driving 10 MPH everywhere.

It is a bit scary how many of us have 'pet peeves' and thinking about this more, it is probably an aspect of anger and frustration which we are expressing on here. All that leads to road rage, baseball bats and going into malls with ak47's. Lets hope we all know when to stop and take a breath before it gets that far.



Oh, BTW I called it 'pet hates' because some of us come from other countries and I thought it would be clearer what I meant. OK, so it wasn't clearer 'cos those other countries use 'pet peeves' as well.

Yes; it's a confusing thread title.
