Is there any one thing that totally drives you crazy? Like, you are almost OCD about it? Like, if someone leaves the toilet seat up and you need it down or vice versa?
One of my biggest pet peeves actually has to do with my cameras and my husband.
I have no problem with him using any of our cameras, he takes great pictures, and I love that I actually get to be in some of them because I’m usually the one taking all the pictures at our family events. Well, when candid picture taking time is over, he will often leave the lens cap off, set the camera down and walk away. That drives me nuts. I’m afraid we’ll lose the lens cap, someone’s child will come up and hide it somewhere, the lens itself will get scratched or who-knows-what will happen. Thankfully, by now Jon knows to turn it off, put the lens cap back on, and set it in a safe place.
I know it sounds like I’m picking on my husband, but I’m really not, just sharing one of my pet peeves, I’d be the exact same if anyone didn’t put the lens cap back on my camera. It’s an expensive piece of equipment and needs to be treated as such.
Oh, since we’re on the topic, I thought of another pet peeve. I can’t stand it when people don’t respect the property of others, whether it be a toy, vehicle, clothes, or what-have-you, it needs to be treated with respect and taken care of. I’ve seen many things not taken care of properly and they’ve been damaged, destroyed or ruined. Most people tend to think, oh, you can buy a new one, but that’s besides the point. Most times buying a new fill-in-the-blank won’t bring back your ruined favorite jeans, or that dent in the car door.
Okay, I’m off my soap box. Not the most happy-go-lucky post today, but that was the topic given.
What’s one of your pet peeves?
