MckLinky Monday - 5 pet peeves

For today's MckLinky with the RHOK Mrs. Coco is sharing some pet peeves -and asks -"What's 5 pet peeves of yours?" ...

1st -Right now I have to say -SNOW! -Whew-just had to get that off my chest! -The kids are once again out of school -have been for about a week -and with more snow expected soon -not sure when they'll go back!

2. You know a lot of "little" things don't bother me so much -It's mostly character issues that bother me -Like : Rude people! I think if someone is making an effort to be courteous you should do the same.

3. I also think that a lot of issues stems from another problem -Lack of communication! I'm sure most of us have experienced frustration out of lack of communication -whether it's from a personal relationship or more of a business relationship. Oh and another thing to add to this is -communication is a 2 way street -talking AND listening.

4. Say what you mean and mean what you say - Along the same lines as communication -I know it can be kind of tricky sometimes though -Sure, there are times to sugar coat somewhat and not be straight out rude - but, say what you need to say as diplomatically as possible is all.

5. Ok so, about the only other thing -Non snow and communication related that peeves me is... Not having light! - Let me explain - I feel our house is kinda dark -During the day I open the shades and turn on a few lights -Other people that live in this house would probably sit "in the dark" all day -not open shades/ turn on lights - I only have it "dark" when we're watching a movie (sometimes) or going to sleep - and that's it.

Now it's your turn - Join in and share - What 5 things irk you?!

My kitchen is dark and I can't stand it. Hubby installed under the cabinet lights and it's still not enough for me. I have to look in the cupboards with a flashlight. Maybe it's just my eyes getting old but it makes me crazy, too! :-)

i LOVE natural light. my crazy nana can just sit in the dark all the time. how depressing.

Steph said...

I agree with all your pet peeves. I'm ready for the snow to go and it can take the rude people with it.

I'm with you and everyone else...I LOVE natural light and hate a dark room!

Feels good to get all those pet peeves out in the open, huh?! :)

Hope you're having a good Monday.

Sounds like when the snow leaves your problems will all be solved. Lol.

Thank goodness that the snow is mostly melted in my part of Oklahoma! It got old in a hurry but it sounds like more is expected this week. UGH.

I love my house because it lets in LOTS of natural lighting! Too much sometimes.

Thanks for linking up today (as always!)

Great list~

Girl your list just got me all worked up LOL!!! Snow, no communication, rudeness - that has been my week around here LOL.

I concur with your list! I especially am ready for my kids to return to school and I need sunshine inside my house and in the sky!

Dawn said...

Oh, I do say what I mean. I'm sure that is on SOMEONE's peeve list. LOL!

I also don't like a dark house. We lived in a house built in the 70's for a short period. It was like a freaking dungeon.

Great list of peeves.

I know the snow is getting on everyone's nerves and there is more coming. I didn't play again because believe it or not people track my comments down, so I have to be careful what I say on my blog and my comments on other blogs. Can you believe that? Anyway, we have soooo much natural light, which I love, but I'm thinking of repainting the house with some neutral tones(brown) to make it warmer. I'm afraid it looks stark for a cabin in the woods. Did you want to hear all that? Have a great day and stay safe and warm.

My Pet Peeves:

1. When my kids get up superearly and get into my bed.

2. Pregnancy. Enough said.

3. When my boss calls at the last minute for a meeting when I don't have childcare.

4. My husband changing the channel all the time.

5. The fact that ice cream is bad for you.

Let's make this a rude free zone, please. Yes, I hate rude people, too.

communication, boy, that can be so frustrating at times. It kind drives me crazy at times.

Beth Zimmerman said...

I'm COMPLETELY with you the light thing (and the others you listed ... lol)! My hubby prefers that all the blinds be closed, etc. and it drives me nuts! I don't wish the man any ill but some days I think I would like to live alone so I could flood my house with light and fresh air!
