2 On Tuesday: Pet Peeves

2 on Tuesday

This week, Andrea wants to know our pet peeves.  This is a list that could go on and on, but I am going to do my best to keep it to my top two. 

1.  People not watching their children in public - Nothing makes me crazier than when parents release their children on the public, but don't really watch them.  Now in some settings this okay or even expected, but not in all of them.  It's particularly annoying when they are destroying other people's stuff.  Or throwing wild fits.  It's all I can do to keep the teacher in me from taking control of the situation.

2.  Music boxes - Okay, so I don't know if this goes under a pet peeve or just a pure unadulterated hatred, but I cannot stand wind-up music boxes.  Even thinking about them gives a level of anxiety.  My grandma says that it stems from the lullaby toy they used to play to get me to go to sleep as a baby (I was terrible about sleeping until I was 3 or 4), but I'm not so sure.  All I know is that whenever one starts up, I have to get out of the room or I will lose it.  (Yeah, I know it's super weird.)

Can't want to see what everyone else has to say!


  1. Oooo I can totally relate to the non-attentive parents one. I watch my kids, so I hate it when other parents just assume I'm going to watch theirs too while we're at the park, etc.

  2. I love this SOOOO much! I do agree with #1, but #2 just makes me smile, friend!

  3. I can totally relate with #1. It's all I can do not to reign in unruly kids who's parents are ignoring them!

  4. People not watching their kids is the worst!!!

  5. I am so with you on # 1. I have no issues with music boxes : )
