10 pet peeves that I absolutely shouldn't have and yet

I’m really fun at parties I swear.

THERE ARE MANY things in life which annoy us no end. Some of these are reasonable and some of these are absolutely ridiculous. Many of my pet peeves fall into the latter category but contrary to popular belief, I am still really fun at parties.

No, I am, I promise.

Here are 10 pet peeves I have that regularly make me want to tear my hair out.

1. People who leave their shoes on in their own home.

Shoes should only be necessary when you’re outside. Take off your shoes and let your feet run free. You’re at home! Slippers were invented for this reason!!!

2. People who leave it to the very last minute to press the stop button on the bus.

Ok maybe you didn’t realise how close you were to your stop but thanks to you Karen, I now have whiplash.

3. Couples that refuse to separate when you’re walking towards them.

Look we get that you’re in love and everything but I have places to be and it’d be easier if I could walk past you guys instead of having to go around you or wait for you to stroll by arm in arm.

4. People who wear socks with sandals.

Did none of you watch Trinny and Susannah? Or Gok Wan? OR ANY BASIC FASHION TV PROGRAMME?

5. People who never stop talking about coffee.

We get it, it keeps you awake. Now can we please stop with the embarrassing memes and GIFs and tweets? IT’S JUST COFFEE.

6. People who still say things like ‘YOLO’.

You may only live once Miles but that doesn’t mean you don’t take responsibility for your actions. Also you’re 29. Stop it.

7. People who still care about college societies years after they left college.

8. People who don’t follow recipes.

I would admire your bravery if I wasn’t incredibly concerned about how the dish is going to turn out.

9. People who don’t do the washing up immediately.

I’m not talking about people who don’t do the dishes at all, I mean the people who don’t clean up immediately after dinner and just leave the plates lounging for an hour. Who hurt you???

10. People who can eat whatever they want and gain no weight.

Firstly, how dare you? Secondly, tell me your secrets, please.
