Pet Peeves



Here's some of my favourite pet peeves Construction, potholes, and speed bumps A bald person with a bad fitting hair piece Or soup with unidentified lumps Public washrooms that stink to high heaven Or when someone sneezes nine times People that pick their noses in public Kids eating with their fingers full of grime People making bodily function noises On a bus, at a concert or in church Friends that promise a late night ride home Then get drunk and leave you in the lurch Mosquitoes, spiders, rats and lizards Although not necessarily in that order Someone who totally screws up a punch line Getting held up for hours at the border People that talk to non living objects Like computers, teddy bears, and cars Handshakes that resemble a cold wet fish Cracking knuckles, most annoying by far There certainly is a whole bunch more I'm sure everyone's got some of their own It's just human nature so go with the flow Ignore them and try not to moan! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Well I must admit I'm an obsessive knuckle-crackler (sorry to break it to you). What's worse is that I pop my jaw... which is probably worse for your body! What I hate is people that slurp and making a lot of smacking noises when they eat... also super-picky eaters (they drive me up the wall, but my best friends are picky eaters... *sigh*).

    YIKES! Knuckle crackers! That's another one! If we EVER meet face to face, I implore you, DO NOT crack your knuckles! I will NOT be responsible for my actions... might even slurp my soup! Cheers, your friend Jake the Snake
