This morning on the train I sat next to quite possibly the most annoying woman in Chicago. Well, technically, she sat down next to me. She plops down and is huffing and puffing until she huffs and puffs herself to sleep. Then, she starts snoring. Loudly.
I think she woke herself up because then she started to put on lip gloss – as if that was going to fix the graceful image of her knocked out with her head back, snoring, in front of a trainload of people. Next thing I know, I hear a snort. Apparently she’s asleep again. Lip gloss still in hand. As she slips in and out of consciousness, she’s also making weird moaning sounds and humming to herself. I couldn’t get off the train fast enough.
But all that is not the main point here. This was just the inspiration for my post: my top 3 pet peeves about people.
- Rude & inconsiderate people. Sometimes its hard to tell if they’re rude AND inconsiderate or if they’re just inconsiderate and too ignorant to realize they’re being rude. This includes, but is not limited to, people who: push past you to get on the train, are loud and obnoxious, take up two seats on the train (or just the outside seat when the inside one is empty) and basically just don’t think there’s anyone in the world more important than them.
- People that breathe loudly. I’m sorry if you have a medical condition, just ran up a flight of stairs or have some other legitimate reason for huffing and puffing next to me. It’s just something that always completely annoys me.
- People that don’t understand the definition of personal space. Please don’t push up against me when you have room to be at least two feet away from me. I don’t like strangers and I don’t like crowds.
So, if you’re one of these people, don’t worry, I’m not going to confront you about it. I’m just going to be my passive-agressive self and write a blog post about it.
What are some of your pet peeves?
