Reverendmother of the RevGalBlogPals posted today's Friday Five on the topic of pet peeves. Heh-heh. I'm in a snarky mood today, so this is just perfect!
1. Grammatical pet peeve
Run-on sentences and professional jargon, be it LegalSpeak, ChurchSpeak, AccountantSpeak, EducatorSpeak or whatever. Yeah, verily, for it is written "Let your yes be yes and your no be no."
2. Household pet peeve
Picking up used dishware in the family room left by twenty-something daughters and friends. Yes, Portia and Babs. This means YOU.
3. Arts & Entertainment pet peeve (movie theaters, restaurants, concerts)
People who are famous for being famous and have no talent, intelligence, knowledge or wit to recommend them. Example: Paris Hilton.
4. Liturgical pet peeve
I refuse to answer on the grounds that it might tend to incriminate me. Can't even go there.
5. Wild card--pet peeve that doesn't fit any of the above categories
Bonus: Because all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God: What do YOU do that others might consider a pet peeve?
I have a brain glitch about left and right. Although I know which is which, I always hesitate when asked to give left/right directions. This drives El Jefe CRA-ZEE.
And what are YOUR pet peeves, my friends?
