  5. My biggest pet peeve is.... hmmm, there are a few of them.
    I guess it would be not doing something when you said you would.
    If you say you're going to call, call. If you say you are going to
    get rid of something, then do it. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  14. it's hard to just pick one!! my pet peeve is someone taking and eating the last of something but not eating it all! like there's one delicious cookie left and someone takes 2 bites out of it and then just leaves it. OR last soda, someone (my sister) opens it and drinks 1/2 then leaves it on the table. really?? arrrrgh!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What I hate most is going into the kitchen and seeing the doors to the cabinets open. It drives me crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow what a great laptop sleeve! I love that the closure is a button, so cute :)
    My biggest pet peeve is when people bite their nails near me and do it loudly. There's one girl I sit next to in a class who does just that and it irritates me endlessly! There's plenty more though :P Happy giveaway day!

  17. My biggest pet peeve is people not paying attention while driving! RAWR.

    ReplyDelete
  18. currently my biggest pet peeve is probably shorts with tights...except that the shorts are so tight and short that you see the seams of the tight legs or the pattern on the tights stop. the tights manufacturers never intended that much to show-why do people think that looks classy?!

    ReplyDelete
  19. People who don't clean out the bathroom drains--hair is yucky! christina112358 at gmail dot com

    ReplyDelete
  26. How pretty! Here's hoping you let me continue to be lazy about making a laptop sleeve of my own! My pet peeve is when people mispronounce words (or use a word that means something different from what they are trying to say). For example - "fustrated" for frustrated. Adults shouldn't talk like three-year-olds!

  27. I simply can't stand the sound of spit rolling around in someone's mouth. It's gross to talk about, I know, but I even change the radio station if I can hear the spit while the announcer talks. I am an extremely calm and patient person, but spit-sounds drive me crazy! :) bsimone42@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  28. I have a lot of pet peeves. Nose hair, sniffing/snorting, certain laughs...

    Thanks for a lovely giveaway! I could really use a laptop sleeve!!

    ReplyDelete
  30. It's a tie between people cutting in line and mouth noises (cleaning teeth with your tongue, chewing with your mouth open, drinking loudly, etc).

    Thanks for the chance! This laptop rocks and I would definitely be ready for people to stop me on the street. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Clicking or tapping a pen drives me nuts. It's even worse if more than one person at a meeting is doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. My biggest pet peeve is people leaving stuff around the house without putting it away, and the piles of "I'll take care of that later"...do it now, it's not that hard to do!

    ReplyDelete
  33. My biggest pet peeve is people talking loudly on the bus when I'm trying to read.

    ReplyDelete
  37. biggest pet peeve is when someone says that they are going to do something and then doesn't.... I have friends that do that when it is simply because they don't want to , no matter if there are others who are relying on them! BEAUTIFUL WORK!!! Thanks for a great giveaway!

    ReplyDelete

  41. umm... which one should I say... I have so many.. oops.. The sound of people eating/having things in their mouths really grosses me out. Worst offenders are gum, cereal, apples (!!!!), and the guy who eats at his desk next to me who chews with his front teeth. Seriously, it's disgusting and makes me want to vom.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I can't stand it when someone leaves a restroom stall and I don't hear any water running but I hear the door open/close!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Beautifully done, Nancy! Lots of pet peeves, but the first that comes to mind is when people assume the rules don't apply to them. So many examples of this: people who don't follow traffic rules, people who let dogs run loose in parks where it is prohibited, people who smoke in public places where they shouldn't, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I just about lose it when people use their tongue to "suck" pieces of food out from between their teeth after eating. I have to stop myself from saying "hey! stop that sucking noise before I smack you one!"
    Wow, I think I'm having a hot flash just thinking about it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. When people say EXspresso. There's no darn X in espresso!w But I LOVE when people use Joel Dewberry fabric. :)

  48. My biggest pet peeve right now is "I'm board", to combat this I have created a list of chores and the offender gets what is next on the list. I haven't heard I'm board in a few days I think it may be working.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hmm.... my kids' whining and bickering is what gets on my nerves lately. Thank goodness it's spring/summer so I can send them outside. :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. The improper use of there/their/they're and your/you're. It drives me nuts! Also text speak. Are we that lazy that we can't actually spell out the word? It's not like you get charged by the letter!

    ReplyDelete
  57. My biggest pet peeve is people who don't taste food the way it was cooked before ruining it. I spent 3 hours cooking dinner the other night. I, feeling very proud of myself, put a plate in front of my husband and asked him how he liked it. "I don't know yet." He then commenced to putting half a bottle of ranch on top of it and then told me it was good. I could have clobbered him to death. Ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  58. my biggest pet peeve is my husband not drying out sinks after he uses them. I know its weird, but I will run into a room after him to dry the sink.

  66. thanks for participating in the giveaway! although i have too many pet eeves to be conciderd rational, one of my biggest would have to be people that take off their shoes in public. it's not the sight of feet i find so repugnant, but without fail the people that take off their shoes in public have never.in.their.life taken a bar of soap to the soles of ther feet, or a loofah to the heel, or clippers to the nails. cloven feet are not attractive, and none of us need to witness your slow metamorphosis into a minotaur. rant over.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Beautiful sleeve--and I'm getting a new laptop at work, woohoo!Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Thanks for letting me vent. Whew, I feel better!

    ReplyDelete
  71. This sleeve is uber cool. Pet peeve...signboards with bad spelling/grammar (like an apostrophe before the s for a plural)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Pet peeve: When my glasses get dirty. If I don't have anything to clean them with, I'd rather take them off and get a head ache. I also don't like when the yoke of my beautiful sunny side up egg breaks while in the cooking process.

  83. Love the fabrics you chose! Biggest pet peeve...probably people who leave shopping carts in the middle of parking lots...how hard is it to walk 20 ft and put your cart in the cart return...seriously...

    ReplyDelete
  84. whew. I had to stop reading others' comments because I was getting so grossed out! Rather tamer, my pet peeves mostly are language use/ spelling ones. I'm a stickler for correct grammar and spelling. People using "text speak" when their characters aren't limited ticks me off. Worst though is when teachers or other people kids look to spell things incorrectly or use the wrong it's/ its/ its' (for example). That said, I do so love yellow and gray together and your blog is lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  85. My biggest pet peeve is having to buy plastic non reusable bags at the supermarket because I forgot my reusable hopping bag.

    Replies
    1. I live in Barcelona, Spain. It's very common in Europe to buy your grocery bags and usually they are made of plastic...a total waste and an awful way to pollute the environment. These bags are said to be used for 12 minutes but they last 1000 years!

      Delete
  86. My biggest pet peeve is incorrect word usage. I always hear Inigo Montoya from Princess Bride in my head... "I do not think it means what you think it means."

    Pet peeve.... Not using your blinker! How hard is it to use that thing!?!

  105. Funny - we were just talking about pet peeves this weekend. My mom saying the word "bolero" is one of them but that's pretty specific. More relatable...people speaking when they have food in their mouth. Argh.

  140. Being asked a question when the asker doesn't care or listen to my response - like how are you?

    ReplyDelete
  141. knuckles cracking ... uarghh ... - beginning every second sentence with "uhmm well ... " - having hour long conversations on the phone using public transport (it's usually a "too much information" situation)

    ReplyDelete
  142. Hahaha - this is a pretty rad sleeve :)

    Ooh - I can just have a rage-fit when someone says "Ta" instead of "Thank you". How was something designed to acknowledge another person's effort and time be shortened to something so incredibly dismissive? Ugh - take the time to say two words!

  143. I really can't stand bad eating manners... have the elbows on the table while eating or a hand under the table... talking while eating... (so everybody can see the food inside your mouth)... holding the fork and knife not at the end...

    I know... not the important things in life... but on the other hand, one should appreciate food and all the work that went into it... having eating manners is not to complicated...

  144. It bugs me when people crunch chips really loudly. Really bugs me.

  145. Nice laptop sleeve.
    I really hate to see people spitting on the street.

  146. Love the laptop sleeve. I hate it when the paper on the toilet paper roll goes "under" the back instead of "over" the top. haha. I don't know why, but it really drives me crazy.

  147. Very cute sleeve!! Nice job Nancy! Now that I'm a Mom I seem to have a TON of pet peeves! First major one is probably pretty common.....I HATE repeating my self more than twice. Secondly I can't STAND it when no one replaces the toilet paper roll! Drives me batty!

  148. GORGEOUS lap top sleeve, just beautiful Nancy. My pet peeve is rude drivers - especially when you do something nice for them and then they don't even acknowledge it.... thanks for the fantastic giveaway

  149. When people who don't have kids say what they will "never" do when they have their kids, it irks me. I was that person before I had kids too though so I don't get really upset. I also hate the noise my husband makes when he gets a rough fingernail and tries to fix it smoother with his teeth.

  150. It annoys me when people leave wet towels on the floor and expect Mum to pick them up!!! Cheers, Karen

  151. LOL...love your peeves...

    Mine is people who don't know how to drive...whether they just forgot, got too old or are just idiotic, you need to go the speed limit(at least) and use your signals! =)

    Thanks for a chance to win.

  153. L O V E the laptop sleeve! Pet Peeve: when I ask a child to pick up/clean up something, and the response I get is, "It's not mine!" I didn't ask if it was yours, I asked you to clean it up!

  158. My biggest pet peeve is being trapped talking to someone who is really awkward and doesn't take social cues...yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  159. So Cute!!! I love the chevron fabric on the inside! I don't really have many pet peeves, although I guess I do find people who talk on the phone in the bathroom pretty annoying. I always feel bad for the person on the other end of the line who has to listen to them pee while they talk! Gross!

    ReplyDelete
  160. Lol! Very fun! I can't stand someone who it's eating crakkers or biscuits near me and someone who is speaking while eating! :D

  162. Me irrita muito essa coisa chamada #mania de celular# Eu sou do tempo que telefone era para dar e receber notícias,marcar médico,felicitar alguém pelo aniversário etc..Parece que agora as pessoas não vivem sem ele...para tudo e em todo lugar.Tenho uma filha que a partir de ontem só vai falar comigo se me entregar o celular desligado.Ou eu já avisei que vou quebra-lo e não comprar outro.Estou fervendo!!!Obrigada,é linda sua peça.

  163. My pet peeve is people who scream into their cell phone in public. They can hear you! I promise!

    The laptop sleeve is adorable!!

  164. My pet peeve is when I want to win a giveaway such as this one so badly, and I don't win.

    Kidding, kidding! My biggest pet peeve for real is when people say, "We really want to have you over for dinner sometime," but really have no intention of ever inviting you over for dinner. We've moved a lot (and made GREAT friends from all the moves), but I think people think that's what they're supposed to say to people who are new in a community. And I personally think it's more polite to just not say anything than to lie. :-)

    Also ... my dad and my brother ALWAYS answer the phone and 50% of the time they respond, "I have to call you back, I can't talk right now." I'll never understand why they don't just let me leave a message and call me back when they have the time.

    Anyhow, on a positive note ... Not only could I really use a laptop sleeve - this one is beautiful! I mean, absolutely, stunningly beautiful!

  165. Misuse of the apostrophe and using text language in everyday speech.

    ReplyDelete
  166. What a lovely laptop sleeve! :-)
    My pet peeve is having a listen to people eating really noisely, slurping, slooping, sipping, yuckety yuck yuck yuck!

    ReplyDelete
  167. Love yellow & gray together! I would say my biggest pet peeve is people that rant their personal drama or complainants all over FB. It just screams too much negativity! Thanks for the giveaway! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  168. love the fabrics you chose for the laptop cover! Current pet peeve: the boarding house reach, reaching across your plate of food to snag the pepper.

    ReplyDelete
  169. My biggest pet peeve is a little weird, but it makes me crazy: when people sing to themselves all the time. Especially if they're little made up songs, like about what they're doing or something. ARG. Those are just annoying, because it's like making the same joke over and over and expecting it to be funny all the time, but the serious singing is annoying too because I'm not sure if you're supposed to compliment the singer, listen politely, pretend it's not happening and just talk around it ... It sounds like a very specific thing, but I've known more people than you'd expect that do this! Um, ok, I'm done ranting. :)

    The laptop sleeve is gorgeous, but even more importantly, just this one post made me laugh several times, so I'm adding you to my feed reader right away. Thanks for the giveaway chance! (gotthebutton [at] me [dot] com)

  170. Your Laptop Sleeve is amazing so so pretty! My pet peeve is when people go around using a blue tooth in public, I have had people looking strait at me talking and I think they are talking to me and I go to answer and then relize they have a bluetooth and they walk away it just drives me crazy and it is just plain disrespectful. Thanks for the great giveaway though!!

    ReplyDelete
  171. What a great laptop sleeve! My biggest pet peeve is people who crack their gum. I was in AC Moore the other day and the lady in the aisle with me did nothing but pop and crack her gum until I was about to lose my mind. I put my purchase on the shelf and left the store. I just couldn't take it anymore! :)

    ReplyDelete
  172. What a beauty! Love it! I cant bear it when people spit (is this the right word in english?) on the floor. Ughs!

    ReplyDelete
  173. My biggest pet peeve? People who do not rsvp! I mean seriously, how hard is it to let me know, one way or the other, if you will be there or not?

    ReplyDelete
  174. Love the laptop sleeve. I hate it when people eat with their mouths open..or talking with a mouthful of food. Yuck!

  180. My hubby leaves the kitchen cupboards open. All the time. Putting dishes away, all the cabinet doors open. Grabs a glass for some water, cabinet door open. Makes me absolutely insane and I feel like my house is a mess.

    Love the laptop sleeve! What a creative person you are :-)

    ReplyDelete
  181. my biggest pet peeve is the 'one upper 'person, you konw the one, who got hurt wose than you, caught bigger fish, had higher fever, or whatever was much worse or better than whatever you did. they seem to know everything about everything, makes me want to put muzzle on their mouths.

    ReplyDelete
  182. Beautiful fabric choices! My pet peeve is when cabinet doors or drawers are left just a little open, agh!

    ReplyDelete
  183. I need one of those--your's is lovely and should I win, I won't have to make one myself! Biggest pet peeve... hmmmm, I have so many... ;-) The biggest happens every morning on my way to work, the "sheep-in-a-row" driving mentality, why, if you aren't turning right, do you drive in the right lane when the left lane is EMPTY?!? I have to turn right, so I have to wait through an extra traffic signal because you refused to change lanes! See, gets my goat every time....

    Also, I highly agree with Sharon Murray about the one-upper, that person is high on my list.

    ReplyDelete
  184. My pet peeve is just general bad manners. I am, in compensation, overly polite to every customer service person I interact with. Maybe that is someone else's pet peeve and I am feeding it. Oh no!

    ReplyDelete
  185. I have several, but at the top of my list is when people use "good" instead of "well". It's sill I know, but I have to keep myself from correcting them every time.

    ReplyDelete
  186. My pet peeve is when people wad up the plastic wrap off their sandwiches and leave it on the table while they ( and I) am eating. It makes me want to vomet.
    Love that you said you started a blog to get off your butt. Pretty cool.

  188. Gum popping. Makes me cringe. My mama always said, don't chew gum if you're going to chew it like a cow.

  189. One of my pet peeves is when people walk directly behind you. It annoys the heck out of me!

  190. Beautiful piece!!
    My pet peeve is when someone sees you and says 'how are you' and keeps walking! Don't ask me how I am if you're not interested in hearing the response!!!!

  191. This is great!!!! I have lots, but I hate it when my students roll the office chairs all over the room. I always say "it's a chair with wheels, not a wheel chair". Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  192. I would say what annoys me the most is when people let their dogs poop in my yard, and don't clean it up. Especially when it is right in front of my mail box . . . ick.
