Here recently, I’ve come to the realization that I’m a very VERY impatient person. I have also noticed that just about everyone else on this Earth is impatient as well. So, after talking to Mrs.Newlin what I should write about, an idea popped into my head. That idea being “I should write about the things that annoy me the most.”

Now some of my biggest “pet peeves” go along the lines of interrupting me while talking, repeating something that was just said, littering, when people pick you up late, loud speakers in general, people who don’t know how to use social media, classmates that talk the entire period, classmates that bang stuff on their desk constantly, when someone tries to pass a meme they saw online as an original joke, and finally when people don’t have ANY manners.

I’ve also decided to ask the girl who sits next to me in my 7th period what makes her annoyed to no end. Madison says that she absolutely hates when people don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”, people who talk while eating, people who try to keep their middle name a secret, people who are on their phones while watching a movie at the theater, when someone doesn’t have proper hygiene, when she sees someone drink straight out of a milk jug, the feeling of her fingers on paper, and the sound of nails on a chalkboard.

Mrs. Newlin also adds in that she can’t stand it when people touch her stuff, take things off her desk without permission, when her students don’t listen to directions the first time, when her students are being unnecessarily loud, and someone messing up her things. 

So, if you ever want to know why people are annoyed with you, you are probably doing one of these absolutely atrocious actions.
