This post is inspired by Ebony Life TV’s The Spot, a talk show hosted by Ebuka (hot guy), Zainab (my female crush if I would admit having one) and Lamide. There is this segment where they state their pet peeves, these is like something small that is annoying to you. So I decided since I can’t get on the show yet (maybe someday I will) to state my pet peeves I can as well state them here and hear about yours too. I probably have a habit that is a pet peeve to someone out there. I know one of my sister’s pet peeves is punctuations, she always calls me or chats me up and say, go and edit your posts you got the punctuations a bit off, so now I make a conscious effort to go through my post before publishing.
So let’s go
1. Mixing up English words that are pronounced same way but with different spellings and meanings for example; cease/seize, there/their, grateful/greatful (this is actually not a word but people still use it), where/were, thread/tread. Some people would just mix everything up; “Lord, I am so greatful”, I want to cease this opportunity”. Ahn, Kilode! If in doubt always use a dictionary, download the app it’s free.
2. Grammatical errors: gbaguans hitting you from all corners imagine a graduate saying or typing something like; “takes it easilys please” do you know sometimes I go back and cross check if it’s a mistake or if the letters are close to each other on the keyboard and the person mistakenly pressed it. People who also type these: fwend,yhu,sup,lyk. Auto correct is on your phone for a reason most times you don't have to type the whole word it helps you, so use it.
3. Ignorant people who try to shove their opinions in your face: These people that can argue for Africa, I don’t mind a good argument every now and then. But there are these people who would so argue with you as though they know for a fact what they are saying meanwhile nothing oh, nothing dey the head. Google is your friend, it doesn't matter your question google has the answer. Almost everyone now has a smart phone so not all the time bbm, Instagram, twitter and facebook sometimes Google and random sites. Not all the time Telemundo and Afmag sometimes 15 minutes of Channel TV or CNN and the likes.
1. Constant invitation to play candy crush on facebook; this sometimes makes me want to scream and pull off my hair. Enough said
Do you have any pet peeves you would like to share, what turns you off in other people? Probably nose picking, annoying drivers,poke nosers? Let us know
Love, Peace and Cupcakes...
