30-day Writing Challenge – Day 3

What are your top three pet peeves?

I’m pretty lucky in that there isn’t a lot of stuff that ticks me off. Most of the time it ends up being completely circumstantial, and thus something I just need to deal with internally.

I’m finding either through advancing age, the fact that I’ve had a concussion, or that maybe, just maybe, I’m an introvert, that I find noise to be irritating. When things get busy, my mind doesn’t like it. When it’s bad, it sounds like radio static, and it irks me.

Incomplete household tasks also drive me bananas. I love my kids, but dammit, if you use the last of the toilet paper, replace the roll! This comes down to generally cleaning up after one’s self. Yeah, I’ve not ever been the greatest at tidying up, but I sure do try. I’m trying to set the example, and it’s not being met.

Last one for today involves people asking questions that either the answers appear to be obvious, or that they’re too lazy to seek out answers themselves. This usually falls in the category of work – folks just don’t take the time to do a little bit of research and come to the table informed, or even half-way informed. Peer networks are good at solving problems, too, and I feel like people need to take better advantage of that as well.
