You know how small things can annoy the complete and utter crap out of us. If you didn’t know already, they are call pet peeves, or pet hates.

I have lots, you see. I am one of those people that can get easily irritated by the smallest of things. Just ask my husband, or even my Mum. No, don’t actually. That would annoy me.

I have one of those resting bitch faces when I see one of my pet peeves happen in front of me.

Don’t worry, I’m not all bitch. Just parts of me are. Like my face. Just like Kanyes’. And I have no facial hair. And I also don’t call my kid a direction on a compass.

So I have come up with my top peeves below. They might make you laugh. Or you might think I am a complete dumb bum. Or you and I might be separated at birth, because you may be nodding your head in very loud agreement. I can hear you now…

“Aha! Yep! I so hate that too. This chick is reading my mind! I love her!

As a note of caution, you may not like my opinions, you might think I am overreacting. So stop reading if you have to, because that is one of my pet peeves. People not agreeing with me.

Here are my top peeves:

  • Drivers who do not indicate when they need to. COME ON PEOPLE!! The indicator is attached to the car. It is used when you turn or merge or just happen to decide to move from your straight line. Sorry driver. I can’t read your mind. Thanks for ruining my day. I will be reeling about this now, until the sun goes down now.

Here it is! Nice and handy for you to use. USE IT!!

Here it is! Nice and handy for you to use. USE IT!!

  • Sneezers who sneeze more than three times in a row. If you go for the fourth, I am going to look at you weird. If you do five, I will leave the room and won’t calm down for a few minutes. If you just so happen to go for the sixth, I am going to have yell out to you “Get that s**t under control man!” I even get mad at myself if I sneeze more than three times.
  • People who decide to park right next to you in the carpark, even when there are a 1,000 other parks available. Then they get out of the car at exactly the same time you get out of the car. Then there is that awkward moment where you say “No, you go first”. Don’t worry that I parked here first and you had plenty of other options. Just hurry up lady.
  • Plane passengers who have to stand up before the ‘seatbelt sign’ goes off. Everyone is in a rush to get off the plane okay? I love it when the air hostess gets on the speaker and says in a professional bitchy way, “As you can see, the SEATBELT SIGN is still on!”
  • Speaking of airports and flights, another peeve is when people stand right up close to the baggage carousel at airports. Everyone breathe and take a step back. Your luggage goes around more than once okay? It’s not battle of the quickest to get their bag. Your bag won’t get confiscated if you don’t get it that very second.
  • Paying with credit card for something so small as a packet of gum. Honestly who doesn’t carry some sort of cash on them. You are holding the rest of the world up!

Also this……


  • Two extension cords that party at night in the cupboard. I didn’t do this. I have no time for this. These cords deserve my resting bitch face…..


And this…..


  • Scissors in impossible-to-open packaging. Wait! I will just get the scissors to open it. Oh wait. How ironic.

Go for it Kanye…….

SS_my_resting_bitchface_smallI could go on forever!

I try to be positive most days though. You know, I wake up all happy ready to start the day, nothing is going to piss me off today, nothing. And then some lovely driver pulls in the lane in front of me, without indicating.

Nah. I’m still cool. I’m happy. Everything is awesome and I won’t get mad. And then I see the cafe staff chatting and talking about their weekend, while I am waiting to be served. I will still smile at them. I will still say thanks (through gritted teeth). I am still happy. Sort of.

And then I get home, get myself sorted and a telemarketer rings…..then my wrath is unleashed!

I can be a pretty cool chick too, so I will write a post on THINGS I LOVE as well. But this will be down the track a bit.

I just wanted to write these as a bit of a laugh, plus also make fun of myself. I actually do get annoyed at all of the above, but at least I can admit it. That’s just me.

Everyone has their little irks. Which is fine. We all do. I still am healthy, happy and normal (I think), but when you are a busy Mumma, little things can annoy us. We just don’t have time for fools and their games!

I dare you to write your pet peeves or pet hates! There has to be some little tiny things that annoy you. Go on, leave them in the comments below.

P.S. I LOVE Kanyes’ Resting Bitch Face. It’s my fave. No wonder everyone thinks he is a dick. He probably is quite a cool guy. Maybe he regrets the whole calling his kid North. Or maybe Kim is just high maintenance.

  • Haha Kelly! I have many of the same pet peeves. One of my BIGGEST is lying next to me RIGHT.NOW….SNOOOOOOOOOORING!! How is a person meant to sleep with a freight train in their blimmin ear I.DO.NOT.KNOW!! AARRRRGGGHHH!!! Usually I would just go into the spare room but its soooo hot right now and there’s only air con in our bedroom. Waaaah :( haha

    • Oh my! Snoring is crappo. My hubby does it too, and it shits me to tears. Lucky I love him lots ;)


  • When somebody uses the word “Literally” and they do not literally mean it,

    • I must admit I do this. I also must really piss you off. Sorry.


  • My kids are always giving me grief about my resting bitch face…..but it’s my natural look dammit!!


  • Love all of these!! Definitely hate those too… My most hated pet peeve, having to push a pram with 2 kids also walking with you and carrying bags, and your kids carrying bags to get to the car and some inconsiderate people standing in a big group right in the middle of the walk-way having a good old chin-wag, to the point where you have to ask politely for them to move… That or when teenagers walk like 5 across and nearly bump into your kid that is walking right next to, almost attached…

    • Yep! Why do people have to line up as single file in the shopping centres?? Get out of the way slow bums! I got shit to do, and kids to control.


  • it looks like a nice fast car


  • Ha ha, I totally get it. I have a complete resting bitch face.


  • Fantastic article – I nodded to all the pet peeves except the twisted cords. If I found those cords, I’d see it as a challenge to untwist them, wind them each up neatly and tie them off with one of those twist ties – I love tidying up! I look forward to reading more of your articles.


  • Haha I totally have a bitchy resting face


  • Lol, good read, thanks for a light hearted look on our bitch faces.


  • Very funny! One of my pet peeves is when I let someone merge in front of me when i’m driving and they don’t give a thank you wave. Haha. ;)


  • haha This was a good read :)


  • Very funny!


  • i will like to drive that car


  • Omg all of them !!! ARGH I could add a few more to that list !


  • Lol, That is quite a funny list. I know these things can annoy the best of us on a bad day. I sure we could add to it.
    Like people eating with their mouths open. Gross.
    Smelly people when you are out shopping, seriously there are a bazillion deodorants on the market, find one you like and use it.
    People who are late to functions, dinners etc… ALL the Time. Cannot understand this. Especially repeat offenders.
    Can’t wait to read your post on things you love too.
    And yes I bet Kim is High maintenance but Kanye is no prize either.

    • Thanks! Your list is good! You can visit my Yes Peas Mumma page and see the Things I Love Too :)
