Petty Pet Hates!

Today on the train home, I experienced one of the most horrifying incidents I’ve ever had on a train.

It was a packed train, so when I got on, I perched next to a woman. I sat with one bum-cheek on the seat, one bum-cheek off (I’m a big girl, and I’m always paranoid about encroaching on some poor soul’s personal space!). So there was I, being all considerate, when to my absolute horror, the woman next to me pulled out a pair of nail clippers and started cutting her nails! I tell you, I’ve seen a lot of odd things on the London trains but this just took the biscuit. Bits of nail were flying everywhere as she wasn’t even being careful about it, and one even hit me in the face.

So, after this disgusting event, I got thinking about some of my pet peeves, and decided to make a blog post listing my top 5. So, here goes:

1. People eating with their mouth open/talking with food in their mouth.                                        Just no. Like nails on a chalkboard, makes me want to scream kind of no. One of my friends, who is a really nice guy, sits next to me and he is literally THE LOUDEST eater as he chomps with his mouth wide open. I just want to shake him to get him to stop.

2. Nail picking/nail biting.                                                                                                                          The ol’ boyfriend is very guilty of this. He usually ends up getting a clip round the ear for it (I’m not a violent person, promise)! It’s made worse by how much he complains when he eventually makes his fingers bleed.

3. People speaking ridiculously loud on trains.                                                                                      Or anywhere else for that matter. No one wants to hear your conversation, especially if you’re on the phone when we can only have the consolation of being nosy on half of the conversation.

4. Snorting.                                                                                                                                            Please just blow your nose properly and get it over with.

5. People who don’t commit.                                                                                                                       It’s happened a couple of times with someone I know recently. One of our group will invite everyone out for a drink or event etc, and everyone else will reply – whether it’s a ‘yep I’ll be there’ or a ‘no I can’t make it’. Except this one person, who just doesn’t reply either way – sometimes he turns up, sometimes he doesn’t, which means if it’s something you NEED to know numbers for, it’s impossible to make a proper guess. Just plain rude!

So there are 5 of my pet peeves. What you you think – do you agree/disagree with any of mine? Let me know in the comments, along with some of your own.
