I'm back with the Monday blog challenge! The lady in charge is Marie at Mom Gets Real. The questions are right here:
And Week 9's prompt is . . .
Ooh! I have a few of those!
Another pet peeve is when people exploit the anonymity of the Internet to be RAGING jackasses.
I have been on the business end of someone's GIFT behavior (link NSFW) more times than I want to count, and it's maddening and frustrating. The pleasure some people take in hurting someone else just because they don't have to deal with any social consequences is just really disheartening and sad.
Another pet peeve:
I hate accidentally consuming onions. Or when people who KNOW there are onions in something answer "no" when I say "does this have onions?" Because then I will accidentally consume onions. And the world will be over.
I hate when people (mostly men) think it's okay to call me "baby" or "hey sexy."
And I hate, hate, hate when people try to force me to interact with their pets. I don't want to pet your dog or hold your cat I really, really don't. It's one thing if they don't realize their pet is bothering me or if I haven't told them I'd like to not be jumped on by excited dogs or shed on by love-seeking cats (I'm allergic!). But when these animal-owning humans try to shame me for not liking their pets, or criticize me for not using the right training words to make them leave me alone, or think it's funny when I can't get their dog to stop sticking its nose in my crotch, I am prone to RRRAAAAAAAGE.
And lastly, I hate when I say I'm vegetarian or that I'm asexual, and people immediately get defensive and give me the "so you hate fun?" or "so you think you're better than me?" lines. MY EATING CHOICES AND SEXUAL ORIENTATION AREN'T ABOUT YOU. THEY ARE NOT ABOUT MAKING YOU FEEL BAD, NOR SHOULD THEY FUNCTION AS COMMENTARY ON YOUR LIFE. THE END. NOT ABOUT YOU. 'KAY BYE.
