The topic of this week for Confessional Friday is pet peeves and I'm dying to hear yours! I can't wait to see if some of us share a few of the same.
Here are the front runners on my list:
1. Drivers who don't actually yield at yield signs.
I think in my previous life, I was a traffic cop. And yes, I drive like an 80-year-old grandmother on a sightseeing trip through Branson. But there's nothing more irritating than some yay-hoo (technical term) who careens right through a yield sign with no regard to fellow drivers.
2. Folks who speak a smidge too loudly.
By nature, I'm pretty soft spoken, so I think peeps with booming voices just put me on edge. This is made worse when they are so loud that they talk over other people. (Probably because they cannot hear them for the sound of their own voice.)
3. Incorrect word usage.
A few of my personal favorites:
supposed to vs. suppose to
"I am supposed to go to the market." - Correct
"I am suppose to go to the market." - Incorrect
used to vs. use to
"She used to attend Junior League meetings on Monday." - Correct
"She use to attend Junior League meetings on Monday." - Incorrect
past vs. passed
"In the past, we voted on the winner." - Correct
"In the passed, we voted on the winner." - Incorrect
The above is not a word. It shouldn't be used as such. Regardless is just fine on it's own without the addition of the "i-r".
5. People who don't say "please" or "thank you".
6. The Kardashians.
Don't forget, you can get the topic schedule from week-to-week right here!
