Aloha Friday #7 Pet Peeves

Aloha everyone!
It's Friday, which means that over at An Island Life it is time for Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So on Fridays we take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, she asks a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. Then everyone else asks a simple question of their own blog for others to answer.

The question this week is an easy one. What is your pet peeve. Come on....what is it that REALLY gets under your skin? Drives you bonkers?? Spill it here...just between us. LOL :)

My pet peeve is people who just lack manners (now I am not Miss Etiquette by any means, but I do try to be polite and not act like a fool, you know??) I don't know when it become the "in" thing to NOT RSVP but suddenly NO ONE does it anymore. Have you noticed that?? Also, does ANYONE hold the door open for another human being anymore--much less give up their seat on a crowded subway, bus, or train (guess I must be watching too many old movies on TCM, again, huh?? So, that's my Pet Peeve...tell me yours. If you give me some comment love, I will return the favor. Have a GREAT weekend :)

I agree with you. People lack compassion for each other these days. And respect. It irritates me to see people mistreat others just because they can. We are all just trying to survive in this world, you know?
Have a wonderful weekend!

Manners (or the lack of) is a big one with me too. It's sad when my 4 year old has better manners the the majority of adults I meet.

I'm agreeing with everyone so far. I love to use please and thank you. I love to hear please's and thankyou's used on me, too.

Too often people are just in too big a hurry to be kind and offer up help or even see someone in need.

I am teaching my children to watch out for people in need, and thankfully the Lord has guided us to a lot of people we have been able to help, even really small helps have been wonderful.

Thanks for asking.

The thing that brother me most is: when People do not return your call , not respond to e-mail or ignore your questions on the Social networks. I really think Social network works are the worst. I just do not understand why people aren't social! they should call the network "all about me!!!". It seems that all it is. Okay Got that off my chest:-). I love blogging. you can have those so call social networks. Great Question.

My pet peeve is people who are nasty for no good reason. They just want to be miserable and spread their misery to others.
