Pet Peeve #62: Waiting in the parking lot for your fast food order.



When thinking about this pet peeve, I am thinking the vast menu selection has brought about this problem. For the most part, we visit a drive-thru because it is fast and we do not have to get out of the car. However, there has been a growing trend of fast food businesses asking you to wait in the parking lot and we will bring out your order. It is like curbside gone wild! The key here is “FAST” food. It should be ready when you place your order. Just that simple, yet we are finding ourselves waiting in the parking lot as if the order is cooked to serve. Get it together fast food businesses and please have our order ready at the window. Just Stop it! Ugh!

Pet Peeve #61: People who do not put pictures in a picture frame.



I just really feel like we need to draw the line somewhere regarding this pet peeve. You can get away with putting a wallet size photo in an 8 x 10-photo frame. There are actually some great creative ways to hang a photo without a frame, but I am not talking about those cases. I am talking about people who lean their photos against an object with no picture frame. Then it will get to the point where people end up dusting the photo and not the frame. To be honest, I am at peace with one photo with no picture frame, but at some point we must say, “enough is enough”! I do not get how people can have ten 8 x 10 size photos and bigger in their house with no picture frame. To take this matter even further, how about the people who put a thumbtack in the middle of the photo and hang it on the wall. Please keep in mind; I am talking about professional photos. I am officially drawing the line and saying, Stop it! Ugh!

Pet Peeve #60: Christian music artist who lose weight and pose in a tight dress on their CD cover.



Stop it! Stop it! Stop it! Just stop it! Lawd Jesus! Who in the hell left the gate open and told Christian music artist they should pose like this is JET Beauty of the Week. I do understand the importance of taking care of the temple (body) as instructed by the bible. I also understand the commitment and work ethic it takes to lose weight; however, must artist parade their weight loss in a tight dress on their CD cover. I do not get it. Are we selling Jesus or your new weight loss plan? Share in concert or interviews your struggle to lose weight and end with a praise break. You cannot lose 40 pounds and appear on your next CD cover wearing a tight sequence dress. I am also not saying you should wear a full-length robe, but just stop trying to give the people something more than Jesus. Stop it! Ugh!

Pet Peeve #59: Women who leave urine on the toilet seat.



Most times when women have to use the bathroom, they do not have time to play. It is a race against your bladder, which for some reason it becomes more active once you enter the bathroom. Since the early years of life, females learn two public bathroom methods: swat or cover the seat in toilet paper. Covering the seat works best for females who do a #2, have trouble with swatting or have bad knees. The swatting method works best when females are in a rush and have to do a #1. I do not have a problem with the covering of the seat method, but I do have a problem with females swatting with bad aim. Not only do they swat with bad aim, but also they leave urine on the entire seat. I cannot count on one hand how many times I ran in and out of bathroom stalls to find toilet seats filled with urine. How hard is it to wipe the seat with toilet paper once you are done peeing on the seat and not the toilet bowl? How do you sleep at night knowing you left a toilet seat full of your urine? I hope not well and to all those women who walk away knowing they sprinkled the toilet seat, Stop it! Ugh!

Pet Peeve #58: Celebrities with bad weaves or wigs.



I believe we all agree that bad weaves or wigs on anyone are horrible to witness. For some reason they have become more noticeable over the years. It is as if your weave or wig will scream, “I am not her real hair”! Like most things in life, if you pay more for a product, you receive a better quality. Therefore, we understand everyone cannot afford a decent discrete wig or weave. Very understandable. However, celebrities should have their wig or weave right at all times. There is really no excuse for making millions of dollars a year and walking around with some broke, busted and disgusted wigs or weaves. For celebrities who live on the west coast, I am holding you to a higher level of accountability because Kim Kimble is within your reach. NO EXCUSES! You cannot walk around with $1,000 shoes, $5,000 outfit and some tacky wig or weave looking like you got it install in someone’s basement. My cry to all celebrities with this issue is to stop bringing down the family structure and get your weaves or wigs tighten. Just Stop it! Ugh!

Pet Peeve #57: People with dental insurance who do not visit the dentist.


Please understand this pet peeve is not about people who do not have dental insurance or even people with dental insurance and high co-pays. This pet peeve is about people with good dental insurance who do not visit the dentist. From my experience, I learned a simple dentist visit is free or will have the lowest co-pay. However, I do not get why people do not go. You pay for it but never go to the dentist. That is selfish! Why!?!?
1)   The bacteria you allow to grow in your mouth is giving off a foul killer smell to everyone you encounter.
2)      Not going to the dentist is just agreeing to have yuck mouth, yellow teeth and piano mouth.
3)    You are pushing yourself closer to the grave! Some forms of cancer are detected through a dental visit. Do not panic. However, who wants to die with bad teeth and cancer?!?! Not a good look.

Therefore, October is now National Take Anyone You Know to the Dentist Month. Save a life or even save someone from bad breath and take him or her to the dentist. Stop it! Ugh!
