5 Pet Peeves {Listable Life}


It is Tuesday and Week 7 of Moments That Define Life’s {Listable Life} linky is LIVE! 

The list I chose to make this week was a very therapeutic process.

My Top 5 Pet Peeves

1.  Whining followed by laziness.

We all whine.  We all gripe.  That is ok.  The thing that irks me is when folks whine and whine and whine, but do nothing to change the thing they are whining about.  UGH.  If the whiner would only take some of the energy they are using to whine with and direct it towards fixing what they are whining about, they wouldn’t have anything to whine about anymore.

2.  Judgmental People

Don’t judge people.  You have no idea what happens or has happened behind closed doors.  You don’t know every single detail of their past.  You don’t know their story.  Speak encouraging words.

3.  Greeters at Walmart & Sams

I don’t know if this is an issue where you live, but when you exit one of these stores in Central Arkansas, they always ask to see your receipt.  I know, I know.  Honestly it is a matter of principle.  I asked about the policy one time and they lady told me that they check the receipt if something in the buggy isn’t sacked.  Seriously? If I was going to steal something, it wouldn’t be a 12 pack of toilet paper.  And why does everyone get treated like a thief? Ok, moving on…

4.  Grumpy Folks

Be happy.  Your life is better than 95% of people in this world.  You are not hungry.  You are not homeless.  You have clothes.  You have a good life.  There is nothing going on in your life that you cannot overcome with a little happiness.  I promise, even in the worst times, there is always a reason to smile.

5.  Fake People

This gets me quicker than anything and it seems to be a problem that a lot of women have.  Just be yourself.  You are awesome, don’t doubt that.  I am every eccentric and for a long time, I tried to hide that.  I finally realized that my little weirdness was kind of fun.  People will like the real you a lot more than the pretend you.
