My definition of pet peeves is things we don't like that come up in our lives over and over. Toilet seats up, tooth paste tubes squeezed near the top. Those can be ammunition for pet peeves. Ice cube trays. I keep a gallon size zip Ioc bag in my freezer. If you are going to get ice from any of my ice cube trays, empty the entire tray into the zip Ioc, then take the cubes you want. Put the bag back into the freezer, then fill the tray with water so it will be full of cubes the next time someone wants ice. My mother in law often took a few ice cubes out of a tray, and then put it back in the freezer. Sometimes I looked at all three ice cube trays and each had one or two cubes of ice. That was never enough for me to change a glass of anything worth drinking from hot room temperature to nice and cool. I tried talking with her about it more than once, but she just told me I should check the trays more often so I could refill them and I wouldn't be disappointed. Since I quit smoking a few months ago; I find myself less tolerant of things that didn't used to bother me quite so much. I think I've gained pet peeves as a side effect of no longer smoking. Maybe I have more time to get upset than I did when I was a smoker. People, who dent put dishes and trash in the proper places when done with them, sometimes drive me up the wall. I'm not a perfectionist about keeping my house sparkly and clean. We vacuum when needed and I dust when I can t remember when I last dusted. However, trash has no place to be other than inside trash cans, of which we have many, and used cups, plates and eating utensils don't need to stay in bedrooms, living rooms or any place that isn't the kitchen sink. As a writer and as a store owner, I work at my computer desk for hours at a time. Distractions such as people talking to me while I try to write or enter sales information onto my check register are one of my biggest pet peeves. It's difficult for me to concentrate and also difficult getting back to something I'm writing if my train of thought gets interrupted. This is just as true when I'm driving. I seldom drive more than ten miles a day. When I have to drive further or when I have to drive on roads that are unfamiliar to me; please don't interrupt my concentration. It isn't as reliable as it once was and I need all the quiet I can get to turn onto the right roads. At my house, we all seem to have our self assigned seats in the living room. We also have spares for company. When anyone sits in one of the assigned, favorite seats, I find myself getting agitated, wishing them into one of the unassigned spaces. This is my pet peeve about myself. I grew up not exactly poor, but we certainly didn't have much more than we really needed. We learned not to waste anything, particularly food. So my biggest food pet peeve is when a person gets a spoonful of peanut butter, puts it their mouth, and then puts the spoon in the sink with half the peanut butter still on the spoon. It's often enough peanut butter to lightly cover a piece of bread. My ex-husband did this more often than not. Another way he wasted food was by coming home from work and getting several slices of meat and what looked like a quarter pound of cheese, rolling them up and eating them. I told him that he just ate enough meat and cheese to make up four or five sandwiches, and he did this as I was cooking dinner. The combination of wasted food and wasted money don't work well for me. It's sometimes these little things, these years and years of pet peeves that add up that build toward divorce. People who don't listen are a pet peeve of mine. Some people, during a conversation, are so busy thinking up what they are going to say next that they don't listen to what you are telling them. This is especially irritating when they ask a question, and you already gave the answer. I try to be a good listener. Though I get more irritated at some things because I've recently quit smoking or because of my age; I tend instead to let many things slide. My children, who are in their late twenties, get really serious about some bothersome incidents. I tell them to get past them. Life isn't enjoyable if we spend our days and our emotions getting worked up over things that may not be important next week. I try to explain that some things just aren't important enough to spend so much effort in getting angry. I say "Let it go. Let it go." Of course I sometimes hear from them that I just don't understand. But at the age of sixty; I understand that my life and my time are too precious for me to get worked up over something that will anger me and isn't usually very important anyway. I have had lots of pet peeves in my lifetime, yet I find myself bothered by fewer each year, and bothered more and more by a very few. As we get older; it's good to set our priorities for what we really care about. Some things just aren't important enough to bother me any more. Because of this continuing thought; I find my life more relaxing and comfortable as I live through each year. These are my thoughts. Manna Pro Horse slbs. ONLY 501bs.
