14 Pet Peeves That Are LITERALLY Getting In The Way Of My Daily Functioning

Did yours make the list?


A pet peeve has been defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as "a frequent subject of complaint." Having listed off a few of mine, I think it is safe to say that these things are more than just the subject of a minor complaint. Though some are mildly annoying, some have the ability to drive me over the edge into madness if done frequently enough. However, hearing about other people's pet peeves is just straight out hilarious. So, below I have listed a few of my own along with some gathered from friends and family. Enjoy!

1. Loud chewing

If you're going to eat an entire block of lasagna, power to you, but please take small bites.

2. People who are late without giving a reason

If you're late without explanation, explain when you get there. Or don't be late, simple as that.

3. People who drag their feet when walking

Just. Pick up your feet. Please. Your shoes will thank you.

4. Not covering your mouth when you cough

You have SO MANY germs that the world would be better without. Just keep your germs to yourself, no one wants them.

5. People who steal food off your plate without asking

Just ask. Please, for the love of all things good in the world, be courteous.

6. Saying literally when it’s not literal

This one's okay once in a while, but if you're doing this on the daily? You've gotta go, this isn't gonna work out.

7. Saying no offense when it’s clearly offensive

Saying no offense doesn't play down the offensiveness, trust me.

8. Clapping when the airplane lands

The pilots can't hear you, just be like everyone else and say thank you when you leave the plane.

9. Walking in a row that takes over the entire sidewalk

Pick a buddy and walk with them! You don't have to all walk together!

10. Nail biters

Gross AND dangerous, a rare double whammy.

11. Claiming that you’re bad at names when you’ve met a person three times

Sure, you can be bad at names, but after three times, you've just made a conscious effort to not remember this person.

12. Talking over someone when they’re in the middle of a sentence

It's fine to wait until someone else is done speaking so you can have your turn, but for the love of God, be subtle about it.

13. Not using the blinker

The road has RULES.

14. Not cleaning your hairbrush

Again with the messiness, please just keep it clean. Who are you hurting?

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
