Prompt: We all have ‘pet-peeves’. Write about some of yours!
I have so many pet peeves that I almost wonder if I am just intolerant!
I can't stand it when people smack their lips or chew too loud
I don't like when people whistle or hum when I am thinking
I don't like it when people get loud and obnoxious when I am trying to work
People who force their opinions on others irritate me
I don't like it when people think they are better than others
Out of all of these, I think when people chew loudly irritates me the most. I just don't like hearing other people chew when they eat. It is gross and obnoxious. I really don't think I should be six feet away from you and know when you bite into an apple or a chip. Kindly keep it to yourself. What is worse is there are certain times of the month when noise can get the only nerve I have left. It takes all of me to not scream at the top of my lungs and lose my shit over it. Many of my family members chew loudly and it makes family reunions awful! I think the most aggravating time when people chew loudly is when I am in class. We are allowed to eat during class and at least one of the girls brings in Cheerios. She sits at the table next to mine and eats them one by one! YES! One by one. She puts one in her mouth and chomps it, then chew it. Then she grabs the next. CHOMP...chew chew chew! And another CHOMP chew chew chew. Then she grabs her soda SLURP, CHOMP chew chew chew. You guys should have heard her during the math final!
Now that I have proclaimed my pet peeves, I think I really am just plain intolerant. None of these things will harm me at all! Yet, even as I write about them I can feel myself getting anxious and disturbed. Makes you wonder how we can all exist if everyone has pet peeves like I do!
Of course, I don't do anything that annoys anyone else... cause I am PERFECT!
