WHAT DRIVES YOU CRAZY?
what drives you crazy in your relationships? whether it’s with a boyfriend or friend, i do have one thing i can’t stand…
it drives me crazy when people are consistently late or flakey. now, i admit i am on time and probably way too anal about it (i’m usually 5-10 mins early) the older i get, i am noticing most people aren’t that way at all. i have a handful of friends that are just as type A as i am and i can count on them to always show up on time and rarely ever flake. and then i have other friendships where i kinda just assume i’m going to be waiting around for them or maybe they will cancel last minute. (to my late friends that might be reading this, i still love you.)
lately i’ve tried to tell myself to CHILL OUT a little about it. i don’t need to take it so seriously. it’s just my main pet peeve in a relationship because i don’t feel like my time is being respected. it’s funny because i’ve tried to be late recently and i’m somehow still the first one there. or i’m just completely ready sitting on the couch waiting to leave. ha. i wish i could be more easy going about it!
and they say opposites attract, right? i guess it’s true because i am usually drawn to those people who live life a little more carefree than i do. but with that, comes this issue.
what’s your main pet peeve in a friendship or relationship? do we share the same one?
ok, i may have a few more…
• bathroom humor
• chewing gum loudly
• passive aggressive comments
• when someone can’t keep a secret
• when something is clearly wrong and they say “nothing” when you ask
• when people owe you money and just don’t pay it back and make you ask
• really loud talking
• name droppers / bragging in an obvious way
• when people say “honey” in a condescending tone
(ha, this is getting funny…)
