17) Five Pet Peeves
Another top five countdown. 🙂 Here are my top five pet peeves.
1) Socks and Sandals
This video is hilarious, but I hate socks and sandals. It is so gross as you see the thick sock picking out of the sandal.
And it doesn’t make ANY sense!!!!!!! Why would you wear them together? You wear socks to keep your feet warm, and sandals to keep them cool. It’s stupid!!!!
2) When Restaurants Force You to Tip Them
A tip by definition is:
“a sum of money given to someone as a reward for their services.”
To you hear that restaurants? GIVEN! It is not something I have to do, it is something that I do when treated well!
If you go out with another person or in a group, a lot of restaurants will now force you to pay the gratuity or 15% tip. If you ask for split checks, they refuse. Not because it is difficult, because a single diner has no added 15%, they are at your will. More than one, they can treat you as horrible as they want and you have to pay it anyway.
Now I’m not saying that every restaurant will treat you horribly and gloat about how it doesn’t matter they are getting tipped anyway; but let me just state that in my experience that is how it is. Those that don’t force you to tip, treat you better than those that do.
I think it is stupid and that they shouldn’t be allowed to do so.

3) People Who Cut In Line
I HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE when people do this. It is not right at all. Seriously, If I have been waiting in line this long, there is no way I am going to let you just waltz in and try to get in the front. Heck no sucker! Get to the back!
Now many of you think this is only something that only happens in grade school, well you’re wrong. I’m a short girl, only 5’3. And because of this lack of height, people are always mistreating me.
And people are ALWAYS trying to cut me in lines. And there is no way I will let that happen. Don’t mess with me!

4) When Companies Put You On Hold for Hours!
ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Words cannot describe how annoying this is. It’s like you get on the phone and then by the time you finally get someone you are like a hundred years old.
5) When Films Are Completely Different from the Book They are Based on
I understand that adaptions will never be pure. You always have to cut things as the book is usually much longer, internal dialogue can’t be shown so you have to find a new way, budget, effects, etc. I get that, and I appreciate when a film tries.
BUT WHEN A FILM IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!!!! And the only thing that is the same is the title and character names????!!!
It DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! Like Ella Enchanted, nothing, NOTHING like the book. There are many more, but that would take forever so I’ll stop now.
For more films based on books, go to There’s Nothing Out There. Nothing in the Mist: The Mist (2007)
