My Pet Peeves

Happy Wednesday!  

Sorry I've been MIA lately...I needed sleep.  Seriously.  After visiting 4 states in 24 hours, (with a total of 17 hours of sleep across the Friday, Saturday, Sunday) I needed to go to bed at 9 p.m.  You woudn't want a cranky Erin, would you?  Definitely NOT!

Today's prompt is What are your pet peeves?  


Well, folks, I gotta lotta peeves.

1.) CROCS!  People, just say no!  These are expensive pieces of crap.  They are crap.  I don't feel bad saying that at ALL.  The only time it is appropriate to wear CROCS is if you are a nurse or a child under 7.  


2.) Guys who ghost!  Where do you go?  Why don't you just say you don't like us?  We are tough cookies, and we're strong enough for you to tell us you are just not that into us.  We all saw the movie, we know there's someone better out there for us.  Also, be a man and say it.  Ghosts are awful.  If you break up with us, at least we will have a shred of respect for you.  Ghosts are like Scrubs, and a scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me.

3.) Bad cookies.  Come on people, don't make them crunchy and try to pass them off as a chewy delicious Heaven sent cookie.  That is cruel.  Cookies are meant to be chewy.  

4.) Girls who ask guys if they know how lucky you they are to have them.  

If anyone says this to you, RUN don't walk to the nearest exit.  

5.) People who give diet advice.  If you are not a trainer, nutritionist, or on Biggest Loser,  I want no part of your diet/exercise/health tips.  You people say chocolate isn't an everyday food?  I say blasphemy!  People love to dole out advice.  Let me tell you, I am quite healthy on my own and don't need people telling me things I don't care about.  Go to Lulu Lemon at 11 am, they have people there with way too much time on their hands and way too much money to spend.  Talk to them, they are your people.  I am not your person.  You are not the Meredith to my Christina.  

6.) People who bring 42 items to the 7 items or fewer line at Wegman's.  I will give you a 3 item grace period.  42 items does not a patron of 7 items or fewer line make.  

7.) Know it alls.  We have all met them.  We all hate them.  Moving on.

8.) Derek Hough.  He's awful and I can't stand him.  On a sidebar, Erin Andrews is flawless.

9.) Girls who pretend to be stupid.  

10.) People who diss The Bachelor/ette.  A person's television's selection is not indicative of their intelligence.  

11.) Bad chick flicks.  You have one job, rom coms!  It is to make me fall in love with a guy who is not in my socioeconomic status and/or is a recently converted bad boy.  

12.) People who see no sunshine only clouds.  Yes, life gets you down, but you smile and move on.  

13.) Salads that only use white romaine "lettuce".  I use quoties around lettuce, because we've all been there.  It tastes like water.  

That is all.  Now that I've got my venting session out, I'm going to go do a happy dance and listen to All About That Base and smile.  

Have a great day :)



  1. I'm with you on the people who give diet and exercise advice--if you're not a pro, I don't want to hear it. And know it alls...YES (that was on my list too)! They're usually the people who are "always" in the right too...never can admit their part in something. Drives me nuts!

  2. I can't stand when girls pretend to be dumb just because they think it makes their guy feel special or something. No, just no! Guy who ghost is the absolute worst!! I've met some ghosters and they just suck! Big babies that are terrified of confrontation.

  3. Crocs can be very comfortable for around-the-house, but I buy the cheap $5 knock-offs. I can't imagine buying the name brands for $40 or more!

    I think a lot of diet "advice" is bullshit. I don't believe any food is bad - I love chocolate! Lack of moderation is bad. Broccoli is supposed to be healthy, but can you just eat broccoli all day for weeks? No.

    Ghosting annoyed me so much before I met my husband. At least give the lame "It's not, it's me" and let someone know they should forget about you!

  4. Crocs are the worst!! Pretty sure that was the worst style decision in the history of fashion lol

    1. They are the absolute worst! I don't know who invented them, but they should be punished...by being forced to wear Crocs everyday

  5. I like Derek Hough, it's his sister I have probs with!

    1. I can't stand either of them. I don't like how he's now on Nashville...ruining my fave show
