According to Merriam-Webster, a Pet Peeve is something that annoys or bothers a person very much. As a kid, not only was I a tomboy, but I was also very short on patience, causing me to get into all kinds of trouble and arguments. It wasn't until joining the USAF that I realized the importance of tact and kindness when speaking with others. So you already know that my pet peeve would have to be cruelty of any kind. I hate to see animals abandoned on the street, women with black eyes, seeing human trafficking on the news, or hearing someone degraded in person or via social media because of their looks, sexual orientation, political affiliation, sex, or race. The other thing that really bugs me is cheating. I don't want to read about it in a book watch a movie that has it as the main theme, and pray for me, but if you're a friend and cheat on your husband or wife, I'll never look at you the same again, and the trust will be gone, gone, gone. Yes, that's pretty extreme I know, but I consider that yet another cruel way to mistreat someone. Those who know they are going to cheat, probably shouldn't waste their own time or anyone else's by even getting married.
Almost everyone has something that someone does that really gets on their nerves. What's your pet peeve?
NATIONAL DRINK A BEER DAY
Get your frosted beer mugs out because according to www.Intoxicologist.net, September 28 is National Drink a Beer Day. This is not to be confused with National Beer Day which is actually in April! Apparently whoever came up with these two holidays really wanted the opportunity to have everyone join in the fun of drinking.
NATIONAL STRAWBERRY CREAM PIE DAY
But if you're not a beer drinker and would rather eat your treat instead, take advantage of those juicy strawberries you were wondering what to do with that everyone forgot about in the fridge. (lol)
