​I’m​ ​not​ ​usually​ ​the​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​person​ ​to​ ​express​ ​when​ ​things​ ​annoy​ ​me--other​ ​than​ ​rolling​ ​my​ ​eyes,​ ​but​ ​there
are​ ​actually​ ​quite​ ​a​ ​lot​ ​of​ ​things​ ​I​ ​don’t​ ​like.​ ​I​ ​can’t​ ​say​ ​I’m​ ​not​ ​guilty​ ​for​ ​some​ ​major​ ​pet​ ​peeves,​ ​like​ ​always​ ​being
late,​ ​but​ ​here​ ​are​ ​my​ ​pet​ ​peeves​ ​that​ ​people​ ​should​ ​really​ ​work​ ​on.
This​ ​one​ ​goes​ ​out​ ​to​ ​my​ ​mom…​ ​Yes,​ ​I’m​ ​always​ ​late​ ​but​ ​it’s​ ​not​ ​my​ ​fault.​ ​First​ ​of​ ​all​ ​I’ll​ ​be​ ​ready​ ​to​ ​leave
for​ ​somewhere​ ​and​ ​she​ ​claims​ ​that​ ​she​ ​is​ ​too--but​ ​wait!​ ​She​ ​almost​ ​forgot​ ​her​ ​purse,​ ​and​ ​then​ ​she​ ​has​ ​to​ ​go​ ​get​ ​the
keys,​ ​and​ ​oh​ ​now​ ​she​ ​thinks​ ​she​ ​needs​ ​to​ ​retouch​ ​on​ ​her​ ​makeup​ ​that​ ​she​ ​just​ ​did​ ​10​ ​minutes​ ​ago.​ ​And​ ​mom,​ ​I​ ​really
don’t​ ​think​ ​you’re​ ​forgetting​ ​anything.​ ​But​ ​then​ ​after​ ​all​ ​that​ ​stress​ ​and​ ​you​ ​finally​ ​get​ ​her​ ​into​ ​the​ ​car,​ ​you​ ​get​ ​to​ ​the
place​ ​late.
First​ ​of​ ​all,​ ​being​ ​late​ ​is​ ​embarrassing.​ ​Especially​ ​when​ ​it’s​ ​a​ ​group​ ​of​ ​people​ ​who​ ​have​ ​been​ ​waiting​ ​for
you​ ​to​ ​get​ ​there​ ​for​ ​like​ ​45​ ​minutes.​ ​Soon​ ​enough​ ​they’ll​ ​be​ ​making​ ​bets​ ​on​ ​when​ ​you’re​ ​going​ ​to​ ​get​ ​there​ ​(don’t
feel​ ​bad,​ ​Audrey).​ ​Not​ ​to​ ​mention​ ​that​ ​the​ ​person​ ​that​ ​bet​ ​the​ ​latest​ ​time​ ​won.​ ​When​ ​you’re​ ​there​ ​late--and​ ​no​ ​one
will​ ​let​ ​you​ ​forget​ ​that--​ ​I’m​ ​obligated​ ​to​ ​apologise​ ​to​ ​the​ ​host​ ​several​ ​times.​ ​Finally​ ​when​ ​I’ve​ ​apologised​ ​enough
and​ ​we​ ​start​ ​doing​ ​other​ ​things,​ ​someone​ ​happens​ ​to​ ​bring​ ​it​ ​up​ ​again!​ ​Now​ ​you’re​ ​known​ ​as​ ​the​ ​late​ ​one​ ​and
