(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.
1Venomous Concept
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.
2You Me At Six
Truth Decay

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.
3Pierce 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.)
5Weeping Wound
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.
6Kanye West
Donda 2

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.
7Two 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.
8Dance Gavin Dance
Jackpot Juicer

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.
