Most of you who read my blog - might (or might not) like me in real life.
Here's why: after years of being demure and timid, and it getting me thrown into various situations of being used and/or abused, now I speak my mind and usually don't take any shit.
Which means that some would call me a bitch. (And some have.)
Those of you who are friends with me on Facebook, probably have already figured that out. I've had times where someone pissed me off, and I deleted them from my friends' list - QUICK!, I've also posted various rants as my status - like the one today that reads "I'm a grown woman, on my grown woman business - don't come at me with dumb stuff. Seriously..." all because someone made me mad on there.
(I can't help but laugh.)
Here, this is technically my "business" so I might not let my everyday personality through every now and then (like I've decided to do tonight); most of the time, all you'll get is the "Professional" me, who's eloquent, checks spelling and grammar, and keeps the "crazy" part at bay.
Earlier tonight I decided to share with you my pet peeves. Feel free to jump in here, in the comments, and share yours - because, truth be told, we all have them.
1 - Liars - that's my #1 pet peeve EVER!
2 - People who comment on unrelated postings trashing my Pittsburgh Steelers - that's the reason for my Facebook status.
3 - Misspelling - OMG that bothers me sooo much!
4 - Bad grammar - ranks right up there with Misspells!
5 - When my kids JUST.DON'T.GET that I know when they touch and/or move something of mine. I'm almost anal that I know in exactly what position my items are in, at all times!
6 - Friends and/or family members who regularly don't check in to see how YOU are - I've gotten to the point in the last few years that if they don't have time for me, I don't have time for them.
7 - People who push their opinions on others. For example: I live in Maryland. I constantly hear about how "bad the Pittsburgh Steelers suck". Hey, if you feel that way, cool! Fine! Because, in all honesty, I hate the Baltimore Ravens more than I've ever hated any team. Why? Because I'm from the Pittsburgh area and grew up watching the Steelers. (That means I'm loyal. I've lived in Maryland for about 17 years but Pittsburgh will always be HOME!) So... if you hate the Steelers, keep that shit over there, mmmkkk?!
8 - Selfish people - this can be grouped up there with #6 .
9 - People who pretend their life (or they, themselves!) are better than me. (or you, whomever, it doesn't matter!)
10 - Men who can't take care of their children. I just don't get it.
11 - TYPING IN ALL CAPS ON THE INTERNET OR IN AN EMAIL - yes, it's called "yelling" - learn some netiquette! Quoted from RFC 1855: Use mixed case. UPPER CASE LOOKS AS IF YOU'RE SHOUTING.
(I tried to keep this list as an even number but I almost forgot about the Caps Lock people!)
Feel free to jump right in, anytime...
Yeah... I'm still here, waiting
