|(Mana)tea time - Pet Peeves|
Welcome to (Mana)tea time, where I let you into the inner sanctum of my mind while having a cup of tea. I’m not around as much as I'd like to be and I figured I’d like for y’all to know me better, so here I am… While I’m normally a pretty easy-going individual and try to be friendly, in my first installment, I’ll be sharing some things that annoy the living daylights out of me.
The Good Ship Lollipop
Waking up late. I know that probably no one will understand this, but I hate (almost more than anything) being rushed in the morning. I hate scrambling to get ready, I hate counting the seconds and cutting corners in my morning routine, and I haaaaaaaaaaaate not having the few minutes to enjoy my coffee and cigarette. I would actually rather lose sleep than ruin my morning.
|2||You Me At Six|
When all of the bathrooms are in use at work (or some place with limited bathrooms) and the people inside seem to think they are the only people who exist on the planet and are getting their hair done or are intent on finishing Final Fantasy VII in its entirety while shitting. At one job I had many years ago it was literally so bad I got the idea of creating a procedurally generated mobile game called "Bathroom Quest," but that's a story for another time.
|3||Pierce the Veil|
The Jaws of Life
Having to hear arguments between couples about how whichever one “isn’t on the other one’s Instagram.” If you’re judging the state of your relationship based on Instagram, you have deeper issues.
Lies They Tell Our Children
This is more of a universal hatred than pet peeve but I can't make this list without mentioning LA traffic. Few things are more insanity-inducing than being stuck on any of the following freeways at any time of the day (in order of the pain they inflict): the 405, the 101, the 134, the 110, the 5, the 10, and the 210. The 118 and the 2 highways are the only reliable ones in the entirety of LA. Also driving just about anywhere on a Friday is awful. (Anyone from LA on this site knows exactly what I’m talking about.)
idontbelonghere. (studio gathering)
When I’m having a bad day and need a smoke only to discover that my lighter has fallen out of my pocket.
I have a huge pet peeve on being late for things. I don’t get as upset about other people being late than I do about being late for things myself. If it starts at 6:00, I’m gonna be there at 6:00, and if I’m not, I’m an asshole.
|7||Two Door Cinema Club|
Keep On Smiling
When I save up money and buy something I really want at full price only to have it go on sale days later.
|8||Dance Gavin Dance|
When people won't use swear words even under the correct circumstances. Saying "gosh" when your wife just confessed she was having an affair is just... wrong.
Anyway, those are some of them. As humorous as I've tried to make these (even though I don't really think of myself as funny), these are all real. I probably have others but those are the ones I can think of. I’ll add if I come up with any more. Feel free to discuss, roast, tell me your own pet peeves, etc.
|HAVE AT ME! I’m ready|
|Gosh golly gee willikers.|
|y r they called pet peeves anyway? doesn't seem like the correct word for it. 'pet peeves' sounds like a name for artisinal mason jars you can buy and take care of once your pet rock dies.|
they should be called sth like 'balls itch' or 'sneeze piece'
@someone i have no idea but your ideas make more sense
|I just realized that your username is a play on words and is pronounced like mana-tee and not "man-a-tay-a".|
|Welcome to the boomer club we serve fresh puzzles and mid afternoon tea. As a boomer myself I bought a buncha Mario games but forgot it would be Mario day… rip |
|@sowing honestly i thought the manatee in a teacup avi would be a dead giveaway…|
@pizza are we old enough to qualify as boomers now? I’m internet stupid
|1) yeah it sucks, once in a blue moon I'll decide to lie down for a minute and then proceed to fall into a random narcoleptic slumber, then wake up and realize I don't know what time or day/night it is and what appointments I probably missed. You gotta just love those days|
2) That is literally the worst thing that's ever happened. I don't like shitting at work to begin with, but when I have to and they're all taken? Well fuck me
7) I bought The Last Of Us 2 on day 1, then it went to like 75% off within 3 weeks. I'm still pissed about that
|Lol great list|
|@ Manatea: I don’t know how old you are so who knows? I was talking about Sowing lol |
|"Saying "gosh" when your wife just confessed she was having an affair is just... wrong."|
this is unironically the funniest thing i've read today lol pos
|"are we old enough to qualify as boomers now? I’m internet stupid"|
Literally, boomers cut off past 1964... Internet boomers are either anyone seemingly past 30, or those displaying genuine boomer-like tendencies in the way they talk, like our dear zak for example, who I believe is latter-stage Gen X, but talks like he's at least 20 years older than he is.
|@pizza and isis - I’m past 30… so I’m definitely an internet boomer i guess. I don’t say “bet” that’s for sure… |
@johnny glad i could bring a chuckle :]
|A few of these I’m 100% on board with, and then there’s a couple leaving me to ask, who hurt you???|
|Lmao no one, these are just things i’ve run into with other people. |
|Also I’m gonna do more of these so i was wondering what other categories i should do. Some ideas were:|
1. Thing that make me happy (reverse of this one)
3. Movies/bands that i never got into or understood.
