Friday Five: Minding Your Peeves and Qs

Friday, May 4, 2018
This week's Friday Five:
  1. What's one of your language-related (that is, something people say or write) pet peeves? Mine is actually quite a common language-related pet peeve, but it's gotta be the spellings of "there," "their," and "they're." Or "your" and "you're." Also, using "could of" instead of "could've" or "could have." As it turns out, I have quite a few language-related pet peeves.

  2. What's one of your dining-out-related pet peeves? Obviously, rude and/or slow service, especially if they're working for tips. Also still having to wait for a table with a reservation, or having to wait for a table when there are clearly empty tables in the room. Also, being interrupted by a server while my mouth is full of food. I swear, sometimes I think they do it on purpose just to troll us.

  3. What's one of your technology-related pet peeves? The insanely frequent updates. Especially ones that require restarting your device.

  4. What's one of your television-watching pet peeves? Any and all commercials. It's why I don't watch TV. Like, I find those 15- or 30-second commercials without the "Skip Ad" button on YouTube to be quite annoying, but nothing's more annoying than TV commercials because it's like a full three minutes of trying to sell me shit that I won't buy or remotely care about.

  5. What's something you do that you know peeves others? Talk about BTS incessantly. What can I say, I'm passionate.

  1. Oooh. That waiting while the place is empty thing is SUPER annoying. I usually dine alone, so I frequently get put at a lousy table even when the place is practically empty. Not fair!

    1. Ahhh, that is really annoying. I'd write so many scathing reviews on Yelp, lol.
