Assunto:  To natives: Pet Peeve
 
Mensagem:  One of my pet peeves deals with people who hurl their shopping carts across the mall parking lot after they finish putting their items in the car. (Call it one of my pet rants... things that piss people off...)

A stranger who eats with mouth open, repeatedly showing and then offering his/her partially masticated food to all, perhaps comprises one of some of my pet peeves.

Other personal PPs:

A guy racing in traffic. When you ask him why he raced so, he says, "I raced because I wanted to pick up my girlfriend to go to the movies."

Co-workers who phone other co-workers for a time check and not provide any reasonable rationale for doing so.

Urinating on toilet seats or crouching over the toilet seat with one's shoes on, take a big dump and still miss the toilet, walk out of the cabin as if nothing had happened and laughingly salute you Good morning!


Só me lembro desses agora. A gente só descobre mais... mais adiante.
