No one at my house does this, but my MIL used to brush her teeth in the kitchen!

 
When we got married, I told my DH that if ever did this, he would be cleaning his teeth in a cup for the rest of his life.  He has never tested the water...he knows better.

 


Am I the only one who has "levels" of dish towels?

 

Level one - purely decorative, hang over the oven door

 

Level two - white "flour sack" towels only used for drying dishes

 

Level three - a towel hanging off a towel bar on a cabinet door only used for drying my hands but also decorative (not level 1 quality 😁)

 

Level four - towels that should have been retired long ago but I use them to clean up messes on the floor, etc

 

Level five - paper towels, because sometimes that's the best choice for the task/mess at hand/foot

@Mersha  Men (or boys) who don't take off their hats in the house. Who raised them?

Do you see the border cuff on those towels?  I have a few in my kitchen drawer where that is all that is left of those towels.  Quick for scrub on the carpet or some such chore.  I thought I was the only one who kept till there was nothing left to keep.

I'm on a roll here.............

 

UPS, FEDX, not ringing doorbell to let you know you have a package sitting out there for the world to see.  I got my tomato plants yesterday and if I hadn't checked 'informed delivery' to give you some idea when they would be coming they would sit out there for couple of days.

 

I called up local office and said "why don't drivers ring the doorbell it's not hard and it's free"? they said "we thought they always do". I said not my house. We don't use front door that much to stumble over the stuff . 

My porch is a porch pirates dream. LOL

Thats a pet peeve of mine too....now the UPS guys will KNOCK on the door and I appreciate that, but Amazon and USPS people wont (they said people complained that it disturbed them and others complained it woke up their babies/kids that were taking a nap.)..so I had a package that sat out in the rain yesterday....Woman Frustrated

As for mainstream peeves, this would be a HUGE one for me.   I like manners and, IMO, just showing up at somebody's house does not illustrate good manners in the least.

I have a friend who if I hand my phone to her to show a picture, she will scroll through surrounding pictures to see what else is there.

 

After a few instances of this, I no longer show her pictures in person.


 

Ok, that seems creepy and would bother me, too.   It's not like one might have anything to hide but it's just mega-intrusive.   

 

Can't blame you.  I wouldn't either.

Oh yes.   yick!   It's funny when you see, on a sitcom, where there is one character (Joey Tribbiani comes to mind, as well as a couple others) who cannot stand for people to do this and they kind of make it like he is some kind of freak.  No!  The freak is the one sticking his/her hands in your food!

Dog owners not picking up their dog's poop!!! 

 

 

I have a 10 pound Morkie,and I pick up after her 100% of the time.  Once, she had a stomach issue while out on a walk.  I ran out of bags I carried with me.  So I marked her last spot with a couple of pine cones and sticks, took her home, then I walked half a mile back with a bag to pick that last bit up.

AMEN!!!!!!!  It's just all part of being a responsible pet parent---but some people are so inconsiderate!!!!!

People who are way too easily offended and have no sense of humor about themselves.

Are they really too early offended or is claiming that they are a way of excusing the offense?
