Note to my reader: This post is a part (#3) of ’30 Day Writing Challenge’ that I found on Pinterest. The challenge is a collection of simple writing prompts.
Hmmmm, this is a tough one.
First of all, if you are like me who always struggle to keep up with the “urban” terminology (I coined it from “urban dictionary”, if that makes sense….?!), here’s what Google Mahashai has to say:
“one of my biggest pet peeves is poor customer service” “
Thank you, Google. “Jahanpana! Tussi great ho!”
Now that we have established clearly the meaning of the essence of the post, let’s start listing. (Thank god, it’s just three!)
1. When people do not maintain books/magazines/newspapers properly.
It is not exclusive to just my property; even theirs and public (as in library or shops) property. I just cannot take somebody “irresponsibly” (yes, that’s what I think it is of that species of a person!!) turn pages which leave them crumpled or folded or the worst – end up torn! Or folding the book while reading it! Not folding the newspaper neatly (at least take little effort!) after reading! Staining the book, somebody writing/marking anything even with a pencil in my borrowed book!
Sad that I am just using one at each sentence.)
Just this one pet peeve has the potential to give me nightmares!
2. Tourists who act as if they own the place.
Then there was this other stupid lot who sit there and compare, with all the loud voice they can gather from their throats, the seemingly similar other picturesque scenic beauties they have previously visited! Why the deuce can’t you just SHUT-UP and be in the present and let.others.be too?!
For all such species of people out there, here’s some free advice which you should be taking:
Note: Its not just exclusive to a stream!
3. People who don’t read – even worse, are the people who ” (I) don’t understand – why should I read? What’s there in reading?”
Well, I don’t understand how you are just not dropping dead!
There you go! My top three pet peeves. Share some of yours too, dear reader. I’d love to know you more. 🙂
