Pet Peeves are those little things in life that really irritate or frustrate you. They can be things that aren't designed or made correctly, or things people do that just frustrate the heck out of you.
So what drives you crazy?
My particular peeve is that exceptionally annoying person who sidles up to you when you’ve finally found time to curl up in your favourite chair with a book, a glass of wine and a little plate of nibbles just for you. Often they’ll stand and stare at you for a few moments – you see them in the periphery of your vision which in itself is annoying - and then say really loudly as though you are stone deaf, “Wotcha doing?”
This completely inane question is made a hundred times worse because it’s invariably asked in a kind of high pitched sing-song voice.
“What do you THINK I’m doing, you mouldy old woolsack?” You hiss vehemently “Go. Away.”
“What are you getting so huffy about,” he/she/it replies in severely wounded tones. “I was only asking….”
So go on, do tell us what gets on your goat. Share your own particular peeve with us here and you could win this signed, limited edition giclée of Princess Bagaya chillin’ out with her pet parrot Ptolemy. The value of the print will be donated to Dr. Maithri’s Swaziland Project in the winner’s name.
I’ve asked the Chief Perpetrator of my pet peeve to be the judge in this little contest! You ready, Miss Bean?
