  1. I know this is silly but I hate it when women say “That is a lovely piece”. It’s a friggen table! Just say table! It does not make it more valuable because you called it a “piece”.
    Whew! I feel better now.

  2. #YOLO! I hate hashtags and I can’t stand adults who say YOLO (well, really anyone, for that matter). Oh, and musicians who use autotune. And anyone who wears banana clips or scrunchies in their hair. And pencils. I can’t stand the feel, smell, or sound of them. Sorry, mechanical pencils only for me!

    1. Haha how could I forget YOLO! I have some friends on Facebook who need a #hashtag #intervention, it’s really gotten ridiculous. Oh and you can have all the mechanical pencils you want!

  3. Agree with many of these. I am somewhat baffled by your dislike of cheese graters though?
    One I’d add to the list are people who go to nice restaurants and have steak well done. Philistine!

    1. I get so nervous using a box cheese grater, you wouldn’t believe it – I always just know I’m going to bust my knuckles. I absolutely agree with the well done steak, the cow’s already dead so why kill it again?

    1. I read the list to my wife and when I got to “people with feet” she gave the oddest look and said, “you’re just weird.” Whenever I read ‘should of’ I just shudder.

  4. *People who post on FB what they had for breakfast, lunch, dinner…snacks! I DON’T CARE!!
    *Stupidity….alas, I have zero tolerance!
    *People who say, “back in the day”….the day of What?
    *eating with your mouth open…ew, really?
    *talking during a movie….ugh, go outside! no one wants to hear your random thoughts!
    *ALL reality TV!
    *dropped calls!!
    *people without kids giving parental advice
    *being behind someone going UNDER the speed limit with no opportunity to pass! grrr

    My list is long!! LOL! But these are a few…. 🙂
