Pet Peeves

Pet peeves are interesting things. Most of the time, they end up being quite obscure and perplexing. By perplexing, I mean that it doesn’t really make sense to me why I have some of the pet peeves that I have. For instance, I have a pet peeve that involves the way toilet paper is placed into the holder. The loose end of the roll has to come over the top of the roll instead of the bottom. I’m convinced it’s easier to tear this way and leaves you with fewer ripped and mangled ends. It makes for a more swift and streamlined flick of a the wrist.

I know. You think I’m crazy. Well, I probably am. Who thinks about this stuff? I do.┬áIn fact, I am so insistent that this is the right way to position a roll in its holder that I will go so far as to take out a roll and correct its placement in other people’s houses. So if you invite me over and your preferred way is opposite of mine, I apologize now. You’ll probably have to change it back once I leave.

What are your pet peeves?

    Yes, that is the only right way to do it!

    For me, a few are: people twitching/fiddling with things or tossing them in the air. Just hold still! And eyebrows. Don’t pluck them in a little line and super far apart. You look like a cartoon character.

    Haha, I love that toilet roll is the subject of your post! People blowing their noses always gives me the creeps! Rachel
