Motivation Kickstarter Day 3: Pet Peeves

As part of my quest to find my motivation, I've accepted the 30 Day Writing Challenge.  Each post will be added to the main post HERE.

My Top Three Pet Peeves

I can be pretty peevish if I'm not careful, so it's hard for me to pick my top three.  I kind of have to be in the moment to even realize what peeves me.  Since I'm not feeling at all peevish right now, I'm just going to have to do my best.  

1. Whining.  Give me a good tantrum any day, but the sound of whining sends me over the edge.  It's even worse when it's an adult.  And yes, I've certainly been guilty of this myself.  

2. Indirect communication.  Aargh!  Just say what you mean!

3. Half-assing.  Throwing dirty shorts on the floor right by the hamper instead of in it, wiping up half the honey you dripped on the counter instead of looking for all that you may have spilled, not looking beyond the tip of your nose when searching for the sour cream in the fridge, and so on is virtually guaranteed to get an eye-roll from me.  If you "do" the work and then I have to go back and do it again, we're going to have a talk.

I wasn't feeling peevish before writing this, but, I'll admit, after thinking of these things, I am a little now.  Hrmph.
