Today being 4/20 I felt inspired to write about the various pet peeves I have and to see the peeves of other Niners. I'm limiting myself to the top 3 aside from the "weed peeve."

The reason that 4/20 inspires such thoughts is because it is a peeve of mine to listen to all of the various "haha weed" commentary this day evokes. The "man I'm high" commentary is annoying year round. It's even more annoying than the "man I got so wasted last night" commentary.

Other pet peeves -

  • A lot. It's two words not one. Allie Brosh at Hyperbole and a Half covers the topic very well. I've never understood why it annoys me, but every time someone writes it as one word I feel a heart attack on the horizon. Makes me also think of this scene from the amazing West Wing.

  • People that make any noise while I'm watching something. I miss being a manager at a movie theater. Used to screen the occasional movie after closing time. Just me and maybe a friend. Nice.
  • People who use the snooze function on their alarm clock. Why set your alarm half an hour before you need to get up to just hit the snooze button over and over? You gain absolutely nothing from that waking/sleeping. There's no value to it at all. Just set it for the time you want up AND GET UP. You'll actually get the benefit of that sleep, and I won't feel it necessary to murder you when I'm woken up by your alarm over and over.
