I am on FIRE with the peeves tonight. And speaking of fire, you know how a fire alarm will haltingly screech every 30 seconds or so when the battery needs to be changed? Well, there is one that's been giving... Continue reading

Major self-peeve. I (thought I) bought my favorite brow pencil from Clinique. I got it home and discovered that I had accidentally bought their brow liner which is, no exaggeration, one millimeter in diameter. I had already opened it and... Continue reading

Bagger (even though they don't have bags) at CostCo: "Did you want a box for these?" Me inside my head: "No, that's OK. I'll just let fifteen individual items roll around in my car, jackass." Me out loud: "Yes, please." Continue reading

I've recently received two invitations to two different showers (one wedding, one baby) and I have about 99 related peeves, but I'll just focus on one. I hate when a shower invite has a phone number to RSVP. I wish... Continue reading

I went to Trader Joe's and bought a case of Tejava iced tea, to which I am ADDICTED. I thought the total seemed unusually high, but got distracted and forgot about it. I got home, lugged this heavy case and... Continue reading

I'm pretty sure Gwyneth Paltrow's head is not in my glove box. However, my car owner's manual, registration, insurance information, etc. is in there. But as of two days ago, it has magically stopped opening. It doesn't have a lock,... Continue reading

It was inevitable that I get a photo ticket at some point. I was turning right at an intersection and I didn't come to a complete stop before turning. There were no pedestrians and the intersection is huge so I... Continue reading

Not too long ago, I went to wine bar for a lovely birthday gathering for a friend. The people were nice and the food and wine were delicious. There were about 15 or 20 people. When the bill came, I... Continue reading

Yesterday was terrible. I went by my usual nail salon, where I've been going for pedicures for 15 years. They are gone. No "we've moved" sign, no forwarding address. Their phone number was disconnected. They were simply gone. They were... Continue reading

Rain + dog poo + slick sidewalk = me slipping and almost breaking my neck. I'd like to find the irresponsible dog owner and rub his/her nose in it. I'm glad I didn't sustain a poo-cussion. Or have to go... Continue reading

TypePad HTML Email Thank you for your FUPA admiration. I don't hate the tradition. It's the being singled out (pun intended) over a microphone in front of 200 people that is mortifying.

Dear Brides I'm genuinely happy that you found the love of your life. Thank you for inviting me to the wedding. I had a great time! And I support your decision to have all the traditional moments, including the bouquet... Continue reading

Normally, I would gladly see any Martin Scorsese movie. But I'm out on Hugo. Don't get me wrong, I love Chloe Grace Moretz and the film looks like it will have great special effects. But that scene with the boy... Continue reading

I chose the lamest post title ever because I think it was some weird robot movie. Anyway, apparently I cause all batteries to leak acid. First, my Maglite batteries leaked and ruined my flashlight. Then, my silent clock woke me... Continue reading

I get regular pedicures. The only time my toenails are polish-less is for the few minutes between polishes during the pedicure. Recently, I haven't had time to go in to my regular nail peeps and I refuse to polish my... Continue reading

My skin is very easily irritated from shaving. So my sister, said, "Duh, use Bikini Zone." "Oh yeah," I thought. I had forgotten it existed. So I bought some and went to use it today post-shave. First of all, it... Continue reading

I don't like it when parents give their babies or children their cell phones to play with. Why? Do I not like the idea of baby slobber on a phone? Do I think the kid will accidentally call 911? Do... Continue reading

Although one of my previous peeves was about spelling the word "peave" it is actually fitting for this post. I just heated what I thought would be a delightful Trader Joe's dish with scallops and mushrooms. Only to discover it... Continue reading

I know I can't complain about weather since I live in San Diego, but my tiny condo has poor insulation, no A/C and is blazing hot in the summer. I can open all four windows and my front door and... Continue reading

I have a Facebook friend (a very nice acquaintance from high school) who just posted about her Biggest Peave on Facebook. I badly want to comment, "It's spelled PEEVE." But she is a nice person. And I agree with her... Continue reading

How old do I have to get before I realize that I must apply sunscreen EVERY TIME I am in the sun for more than five minutes? How many sunburns do I have to get? I look and feel terrible.... Continue reading

I would like to complain to my co-worker, seen here with arms spread as if to say. "What?," that his shirt is not proper work attire, but it keeps my work day amusing. Continue reading

Dear Chicago Code Writers: You can't use the word "jackhole" three or more times in a single episode. Yes, I know you can't say "jack off" or "a**hole" on network TV so you have to "get creative." But creativity means... Continue reading
