Day 22. Pet Peeves

Oh wow I’m late posting today! All my other entries have been posted in the morning but this one is being posted at 9pm! Reason for this is because I’ve just come back from holiday and hadn’t scheduled a post for today – I ran out of wi-fi!!

So my pet peeves! Here’s my current top 5!!

1. Recycling

I came into the house last week and saw that hubby had been tidying up. His version of tidying up is binning everything – including recyclable items such as paper and fizzy drink cans. It annoys me when he doesn’t recycle!!

2. Switching off lights

On a similar line to the recycling it annoys me when he leaves lights on in rooms he’s not in! I will quite often walk upstairs to bed and find he’s left the light on since like 3 hours ago!!

3. Doors

Still having a rant about my hubby really but it annoys me when he leaves doors open. It’s bloody cold now and I have the central heating on which costs money. But what’s the point when he leaves the door open?!!

4. Smoking

I’ve mentioned this before but I really really hate smoking! It’s a dirty habit and I don’t understand why anyone would want to do it. But I can appreciate that everyone is different so what my pet peeves really relates to is inconsiderate smokers – those people who smoke in front of children and babies. Especially those who smoke around my baby!

5. Empty Kettle

There is nothing worse than reaching the kettle at work to find it’s empty!!!

What are your pet peeves?

    I hate when people don’t switch off the lights as well – there’s no point to it and it wastes both money and energy. So irritating!

    Haha, I’m always telling my boyfriend there’s no need to have every light in the flat on! He’ll leave the kitchen light on with the excuse “I’m planning on going back in there.” Yes, but when? Cos if it’s not going to be for another hour you can switch off the light in the meantime!

      That’s exactly what hubby says! It really annoys me! He left lights on in the hotel room all day which drove me potty!

    Those are good ones, and the recycling one… I think you would love it here in Germany, the plastic bottles have a sort of deposit on them that you get back when you return it.

      I’ve heard that you have a lot of recycling in Germany!
