A few months ago, I did a little cleanse of some of my daily irritations in a blog post called Pettiest Peeves. Well, I’m at it again because there is an infinite amount of crap in this world that irritates me. If you’re reading this in a bad mood, use it to get some of that negativity off your chest!
I’ve ordered many things off the Internet during my time on this spinning rock we call home. It’s 2018. Everyone orders stuff from the Internet. We get boxes and packages through the post all the time. Or if you’re unlucky like me and work full-time, you will find yourself at the Post Office or the parcel depot waiting for stuff. I think people these days have an addiction to receiving stuff through the post.
In fact, I think we always have. It’s great having something with my name on, just for me, coming through the door. It’s fabulous! What I don’t get is the ridiculous amount of packaging. I mean, come on! Can you see this picture? That was literally all I ordered. One tub of the Cantu Coconut Curling Cream. Just one tub. One small tub that was wrapped in a clear plastic resealable bag. That was wrapped and packed with brown paper. That was placed in a box big enough for 5 more tubs. I don’t even understand.
Pet Peeve #8 – Too much packaging!
I have a thing about public toilets. They are a minefield. There is so much wrong with them. I’m not sure where to start. Maybe I’ll do a full post on my public toilet pet peeves or is that too niche?
Anyway, the thing that’s getting my goat today is wet toilet seats. Usually I spot it before I sit down and will wipe the seat. But sometimes it catches me out. And the worst thing about it is, you usually only realise how bad it is once you’ve stood up. And it’s hard to know if it is from a violent flush or a lady with the power of a pressure washer. It always makes me cringe. And it makes me think of the debate I’ve had a few times about hovering or sitting. I have no idea why I forget to hover because wet seats are gross!
