When using the self checkout, there is a nifty little divider you can use to separate your order from the person's behind you. If you want to take your sweet time bagging your order, be courteous of my time and use it. It's really not rocket science.
|Voila! Put up the divider and we can all shop happy.|
Instagram peeve: Yes, your kids are cute. If I follow you, I like to see their occasional photo show up in my feed. However, I don't need a frame by frame of 30 pics of them going down a slide. Take a 6 second Vine and stop clogging the feed.
Bloggers. Don't assume it's fine to start emailing me if I have commented on your blog or linked up with one of your parties in the past. This does not apply to those bloggers I have established a friendly basis with, who occasionally email for a little chat. For example, I get about 20 Wordless Wednesday reminders from various bloggers each week because I have linked with them before. Don't use my email for your personal gain without my permission. If I didn't specifically subscribe to your newsletter, it's just not cool.
On the same line, I hate it when someone adds me to a Facebook group without my permission. Again, this doesn't apply to bloggers who add me to groups they know I'll enjoy. But I just went through and removed myself from about 15 stupid "vote for me" and "buy my eBay crap" groups I was automatically added to from friends.
The endless emails I get from companies wanting me to push their junk for free. Blogging takes time and effort. Why would I want to give a company free publicity, taking time away from my kids, and get nothing in return? Press releases are viewed as spam and are treated as such.
Now, this is minor, but it really pisses me off. I see it all the time at grocery stores and at our community center.
If you are dropping someone off at the front of a building, don't stop in front of the door where we all have to walk around you. Scoot up a few feet and don't be an inconsiderate jerk.
What are your peeves lately?
