Pet Peeve Tuesday: Week 1
I'm starting a new weekly Pet Peeve post, aptly called "Pet Peeve Tuesday!" (Tuesday has always been my least favorite day of the week).
We all need to vent occasionally, right?
Here is my first peeve: Lateness.
Of course I understand being occasionally late. Things come up: unexpected road construction, a hungry baby's feeding, an unplanned work meeting. However, I cannot stand it when someone is perpetually late!
What constitutes as late in my book? Anything over 10 minutes.
Here's what I think makes chronic tardiness so annoying to me: If I can usually make it on time, why can't they? What is the other person implying about their time versus everyone else's? It especially irks me if the tardy-person doesn't really apologize or is a constant re-offender.
So let's get to places on time people!
Spill it! What is one of your Pet Peeves? How do you handle it?
