Pet Peeves

Linking up with Recently Roached to share a few of my pet peeves!

1.  People who think that because I look young, I'm a teenager. 
When I was about to graduate college, people would assume that I was graduating from High School. FML.

2.  People who devalue my education, simply because I'm "young."

3. Obsessive cursing.  
It just makes you sound uneducated when every other word out of your mouth is an obscenity. 

4.  People who air their dirty laundry on facebook, or better yet, people who list everything they did that day in their status:
Today, I woke up, ate breakfast, went shopping, met so and so for lunch, took a nap, and fixed dinner for my honey.
BLAH. Who cares.

5. Slow drivers.  I admit it, I do like to pretend I'm a NASCAR driver, but if the speed limit is 65 and you're going 40... YOUR LICENSE SHOULD BE REVOKED.

6.  One way friendships.  
If you won't be there for me when I need you, why should I be there when you need me?

7.  The word verification box on Blogger.  I tend to get mad at them and refuse to leave a comment. 

8.  What I Wore Posts. While some people enjoy these, if you post more than one a week, I will not comment.  For the record, yes, you dress WAY better than me and yes, you look amazing.
Now, do I really need to say that on every post?

9.  Hanging up laundry.  
Hence why there has been a pile of laundry on my bedroom floor for two weeks...

10.  Kissing pictures.  I don't know why, but they literally make me cringe. 

Until next time, 
The Intelligent Blonde


  1. Haha! These are too funny. Some of them I wish I posted in mine! Ran across your blog through the link-up! Glad to be your newest follower!

  2. AMEN to the word verification box. It's not hard, people. Take that crap off! And I'm with you... there are so many words in the English language. Cursing is the best you can come up with? Lame.

    Thanks for linkin up!

  3. I agree with you on these! And people always assume I'm young. I'm almost 23 and about to get my MBA, but I still get carded when I go to the movies.

  4. I agree with all of them... but I am guilty with the kissing ones!

  5. Uhm, yes. Everytime I post an outfit, you best be telling me it looks good.

  6. Uhm, yes. Everytime I post an outfit, you best be telling me it looks good.

  7. I can totally relate to one way friendships, something I find very annoying. And the daily itinerary on facebook...seriously no one cares and you don't need to do it daily. Oh and I also hate hanging laundry and have a basket still sitting in my room that I haven't hung up yet either. lol

  8. AHHHHHHHHHHH! All of those apply to me! ALL! And for the record, when I got my hair done for my wedding, other clients thought my sister (who is four years older) and I were going to PROM. No joke! I got married at 26.

  9. I cannot stand people sharing every piece of their lives on Facebook! I especially hate post-breakup statuses!

  10. Things that I agree about:
    Slow drivers: I don't have time to get stuck behind someone going 10-25 under the speed limit.
    Outfit posts: If I wanted to look at clothes online, I would go a store website, not someone's blog
    Excessive swearing: I can understand a bad word here and there when you get worked up, but when people have a legitimately hard time carrying a conversation without dropping f bombs every second... that is embarassing for them.

  11. Nooooo!!! I'm guilty of What I Wore and Kissing pictures. Oops. Please still be my friend?! lol
    I hate obsessive cursing, and slow drivers, and word verification, and people that think my education means nothing because I'm younger than them... and everything else.

  12. OMG SERIOUSLY #1 and #2 peeve me off the most!! I'm 26 and people commonly mistake me for a 17 year old...what's worse is when they say "Oh you wouldn't know who the Beach Boys were just a BABY!!" haha that was my first CD people! I was born in 86...not 96. Oh I could go on for EVER with this topic!

  13. Amen to most of these!! Haha hanging up laundry is second on my least favorite house hold chores. Sometimes I want to kick people in the face for their constant Facebook status updates, and the word verification is THE worst. Sometimes I can barely tell what those things want me to type...and guess what?! I'm no robot. Haha

  14. I cringe at kissing pictures too!! Every single time I see them. Ugh. But I can't lie, I am guilty of doing that ridiculous face in pictures once in a while LMAO. I can't stand slow drivers - so annoying.

  15. My word! I totally agree with everything you just said, girl! AAAH!

    My biggest pet peeve; Text Language. Don't even get me started! Deep breaths, everyone...

  16. Hahahaha! Guilty...I have put up a kissing picture here and there, but I do agree, they can be a bit much in general. I'll take note that you don't like them for future reference for my blog ;) ;) Lol

    The word verification box....good grief!! HATE IT!

  17. I'm loving the new look! & I'm so with you on the word verification todays post made that clear :)

  18. I agree with almost all of these! Kissing pics gross me out...and word verication didn't bother me till they changed it! I'm not a robot but can barely read what they want me to type!

  19. I'm pretty sure you read my mind on most of these.
    They are so on the spot!

    I adore the blog, and the name. New here :)
    Following along now!

    Much love,

  20. Hahaha! It's like you read my mind! But I don't mind kissing pictures... I only cringe when it's kissing pictures of me and my hubs. Weird, right?

  21. What I Wore posts annoy me. Espeically when the person is looking down at their feet, and their arms and legs are bent in weird angles. Sure, that looks completely natural...

  22. i couldn't agree more! bleh, i hate excessive cursing


Your comments make my day!
