The taste of coffee makes me want to gag. It's so bitter and gross and makes my tongue want to shrivel up and die and take all my taste buds with it. Why can't I just like coffee like everyone else? People who love coffee, seem to really really love it and talk about how they can't live without it. I can't take more than a sip of it without wanting to barf. However, I love the smell of it. Weird.
2. Fast runners who say they are slow.
I get it, we've all had to take time off from running due to injury, sickness, work, or whatever and coming back you have to build you way back to your usual endurance and speed. I'm not talking about those people. I've been there and that sucks. I'm talking about the people who like to brag about how they've BQ'd 9 times but in the same breathe talk about how "slow" they are. I also get that as runners, we're extremely competitive and we compete with ourselves more than anything. We have our performance measured with every race but the next time someones says their sub 3:30 marathon was so slow, I'm going to punch you in the face!
Oh and I'm sorry, but if you're on a trolley heading to a race talking about getting to the Elite Starting Line and you've qualified for Boston, YOU. AREN'T SLOW! If you have qualified for Boston several times... just STFU already!
3. The Bachelor/Bachelorette.
Don't get me wrong. I'm a total reality TV fan but I never could get into that one. Seems like the wrong way to find love to me and dating 20 girls/guys at the same time just seems gross! Just how many of those relationships have worked out anyway? Even people on Twitter are saying the girls on the current season of the Bachelor are being totally obvious about only being there to get their 15 minutes of fame. Juan Pablo who?
4. Skinny girls who call themselves fat.
So I know that we are all bombarded by the way the media projects the "perfect body" and we should all have our ribs poking out of our skin, but let's be real. We all want a better body than the one we have and the grass is always greener yada yada yada.... But If you are 110lbs soaking wet and you're 5'7''. You. Aren't. Fat! STFU
5. Social Media Attention Seekers
People who post vague Facebook or Twitter statuses with *sigh* at the end hoping someone will pay attention to them or ask what is wrong, annoy the daylights out of me and I intentionally avoid your post on purpose! Or a bigger pet peeve of mine are the statuses that are vague and make you think someone died and really they just lost a shoe. Stop! Just stop. I. Can't.
Twitter accounts that have 0 followers, who are not following anyone, and have sent out less than 100 tweets and tweet me a link.... Umm I'm not clicking on that! You look like a spam bot!
7. People who tell me I need to have kids.
Last time I checked I didn't want any so it's probably not a good idea to bring an unwanted child into the world, K? I don't make life changing decisions for you, so stop trying to make them for me. #KThanksBye
8. Bad Customer Service
I haven't had any terrible experiences lately but I've had some less than awesome ones. With tons of choices on where I can spend my money if you don't at least try to provide a decent experience, I'll probably go somewhere else. Just saying.
9. Restaurants who don't have a website.
WTH? What year is this? I want to know what your menu is like before I agree to go and spend money at your establishment and you don't have a website? What if I'm trying to decide if your menu fits into my eating plan? What if I'm going there for the first time and I want to read the menu because I'll be too distracted to do it when I'm there with my friends?
10. Fake Southern Accents.
Hey, Casting Director! How about you, I don't know, cast someone from the South who doesn't make us all sound like idiots?!? Or at least, make the actor/actress take a southern diction class and practice a little before they hit the big screen. I can't.
And I'm sure I'm guilty of about half of these so I annoy myself right now too!
