Pet Peeve Day

14 May

Come along my friends – It’s Pet Peeve Day!  Squeals.

Now is the time to get those icky pet peeves off of your chest.  We all have them.  Most of them just tuck them away, shake them off if you will.  Today though to help out with the rising stress levels, go ahead and rant.  I will listen.  I’m all ears… it might look like I’m sleeping here but I listened to mom rant this morning.  I’m a good listener.  What’s bugging you today?

I’ll even let mom go first here –

Dear Fast Food Restaurant – I get it.  Morning times in the drive thru are hectic.  And perhaps this is my fault alone because I didn’t check my items before I left… then again shouldn’t it be correct so I don’t have to check the bag?  For instance, when I ordered a hot sausage biscuit and a Dr Pepper this week in your drive thru I expected to have a sausage biscuit and a nice zappy Dr. Pepper when I got to work 15 minutes later.  Hence my disappointment when I went to take a satisfying sip of my Dr Pepper expecting a WOW and instead of got yuck… the carbonation was out of the drink.  I shook my head to the left and the right while pouring the undrinkable yucky drink down the drain while my taste buds were screaming for a Dr Pepper – the zip of the sting as you swallow is almost a holy thing.  So maybe this happens from time to time.  The fountain drinks do go out and have to be changed.  I thought okay at least I have my sausage biscuit and my taste buds revitalized did a happy dance.  I went back to my desk anticipating the sausage biscuit … only to find a biscuit with an all white egg – absolutely no meat to be found.  Slams head on desk.  Why drive thru Gods are you against me this day?

    oooooh a “castrated” Dr. Pepper is a bad thing…and to find a non- “egg-siting” biscuit is a bad bad thing… Easy got a drawing book and wax crayons at McD once…. we all cried… Easy because I removed his “chewing sticks”, Mark for the car seats and me for a weird colored pants, not even a hip at woodstock would wear :o(

        Oh snorts! Pooping the rainbow. I’ll never look at another rainbow without thinking of you brother. Rolls with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    With a drive through, anticipation is a big part. That makes the disappointment so much worse.

    • PigLove

      05/14/2015 at 2:00 pm

      Yes it does. To have ones taste buds wrapped around the minds pleasure and then to have it disappointed is a HUGE displeasure. I thought mommy was going to cry. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    That’s no good – when you have been craving something to not get it is a nightmare.
    My peeve today is that I’ve had a cold for 2 weeks now – it just won’t shift. Every time I think its going it seems to morph into a slightly different form 😦

      Oh no my friend. I hate that feeling – especially in the summer. Summer colds are the worse. I’m sending you some piggy hogs and snout kisses to get better! XOXO – Bacon

    Ordering from the drive thru at Mickey Dee’s is like going to Vegas…. only you have better odds of winning in Vegas.

      I think you may be right my friend. Mom seems to always get screwed at McD’s. I keep telling her to just enjoy some Cheerios with me in the morning. How could your morning go wrong if you do that, right? XOXO – Bacon

    Bleech! What a lousy experience. Will you brave going there again? Or will you stock the trunk of your car with a case of Dr. Pepper, so that you can be sure of what you’re drinking?

    • PigLove

      Snorts! What’s so funny is that mommy is trying to stop drinking soda. So when this happened, I told her it was a sign from the Gods that she knew better – piggy laughing out loud. XOXO – Bacon

    I hope that next time you get double sausage!

    My pet peeve is a very inconsiderate, mean, criminal neighbour it’s making my humans really upset and wanting to move.

      05/15/2015 at 9:22 am

      Oh no! I hate neighbors like that. What are they doing? XOXO – Bacon

        Partying, arson, leaving their dog out all day barking incessantly. Then it makes me bark. Oh and trashed front and back yards. 😦

        05/15/2015 at 12:47 pm

        Oh snorts! You have a party house in your hood! OMP! I could start packaging up my little “bomb treats” to put on their doorstep for you – snorts with piggy laughter. Not that I’ve done anything like that before. Whistles innocently and walks away XOXO – Bacon

        Bacon sounds like you’re sneakier than I thought! I like it! My humans will have to resort to the police soon. 😦

      • PigLove

        05/15/2015 at 2:37 pm

        Me sneaky? Maybe that’s why daddy tells me I have ninja skills? Yes I agree – police would be good in your situation. Definitely good. XOXO – Bacon

        I’ll bet you do. Teach me please! ~Lowryder~

        So complicated. We had them coming before and he threatened to make things worse for us. Sigh. It will be police the very next time that’s for sure.

        Oh my goodness! What neighbors they are. To threaten? Oh dear piggy heavens. That’s so awful my friends XOXO – Bacon

        My humans want to move.

        I can only imagine my sweet friend. Sometimes it’s impossible to live with people like that. XOXO – Bacon

    so ticks me off when I forget to check the bag and the sauce isn’t in there for my chicken nuggets. urgh

    • PigLove

      05/15/2015 at 9:23 am

      Oh snorts! That is horrid! You gotta have some sauce for the nuggets. Or another one for mom is COLD fries. Shivers – nasty for her but tasty for this little oinker 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    You know – in all the years Mom has lived here she has never been through a drive thru – Mom’s pet peeve is those speakers at drive thrus (she has tried them at the bank) – they never understand her Aussie accent 🙂

    • PigLove

      05/15/2015 at 9:25 am

      aaww – I would absolutely LOVE your Aussie accent my friend – hogs and snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon

    HaHaHa! Refund! Refund! I dont like it when people beep me at the intersection because the reason I am stopped is because I am giving way to pedestrians only the beeper cannot see the pedestrians. There is a Chemist Warehouse on the corner and there are always slower pedestrians because of ill health and when the beepers beep, the pedestrians look up and think I am beeping them to hurry up and I am not. I would like to get out and squeal at the beepers “do you really want me to mow down the pedestrians you impatient jerk wad?”
    I feel better now. 😀

      oh squeals! Way to go Auntie Sharon. Off the chest and in karma land now. I feel you all the way here. There are a LOT of insensitive jerks out there. A LOT. Mom encounters them too. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
