I used to have a long list of pet peeves.
A pet peeve or pet hate is a minor annoyance that an individual identifies as particularly annoying to himself, to a greater degree than others may find it.
Now if you asked me, my pet peeves were completely righteous in their insistence that those around me be respectful of the rest of us by adhering to my list of demands.
Ahh because that was the biggest one of all… RESPECT.
A disrespectful person always made the top of my pet peeves list. Disrespectful to me or to someone else, it didn’t matter… that person needed to know how much I (almighty) disapproved of them and how wrong they were to treat the rest of us so poorly. Ultimately, all my pet peeves came down to respect– whether it be “be on time” or “don’t talk loudly on the phone next to me” or “don’t be a judgey mc judgerson”.
My heart’s cry was respect me and respect others.
I wasn’t asking a whole lot.
Merriam Webster defines respect as:
: a feeling of admiring someone or something that is good, valuable, important, etc.
: a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way
