#reverbbroads11 – Things that make you say “Ewwwwww!”

What are your biggest pet peeves?

Oh, let’s see…  I could probably sit here all night and list off all the things that drive me bonkers.  It’s actually a little scary how many things get on my nerves.  I guess one could say I’m a little high strung.  There just seems to be so many face palming, “I wanna wring your neck” moments in this world.  How can one not sprain their eye muscles with all the rolling that occurs on a daily basis?  Yeah, I know, I’m being a tad melodramatic.  But just a tad…

In most situations where my bicker trigger has been set off, I can keep myself composed.  But there is one thing that drives me cuckoo for cocoa puffs more than anything, and that is having to repeat myself.  I just hate it.  Of course, this is exactly why I married the one person on the planet that can’t seem to understand a word I say at any tone, volume, fluctuation or quantity.  I developed this detain for verbal repetition somewhere in high school, and it has stuck with me ever since.   It’s very common that you will get a terse “Nothing.” from me if you ask me what I just said, not because I’m mad and you’re in trouble, but because I simply don’t want to have to say it again.  9 times out of 10, what I just said either wasn’t important enough to justify repeating, or the reference I just made is already null and void, so repeating it would just sound stupid the second time around.  If there is an afterlife, my version of heaven would be a place where everyone understands perfectly what I say the first time.


My other major malfunction is hair.  Not hair on my body, but loose hair.  It absolutely makes me want to gag.  I was in loose hair free bliss when I had super short hair.  I could wash my hair in the shower and not one loose hair would be found.  Unfortunately (for me), I much prefer my hair long, so this means con copious amounts of loose hair all over my body after I wash it in the shower.  I think I spend the majority of my time in the shower making sure every loose hair is off my body.  No idea why I have this aversion, just always have.
