Pet Peeve

I find it highly annoying when people say, "Goodnight," as they waltz out the door at 4:30pm.

#1 - Unless you came in early - your are definitely cutting out early.    Lots of people slide out the door before 5 but don't go around announcing it by saying something cheesy. 

#2 - Goodnight?  What is this?  1950?

#3 - Goodnight is for when you are going to bed - not 5pm to your co-worker.  It's not even dark yet.  Dumb!

What are your pet peeves?

At least some of your co-workers "announce" when they are leaving, and not "sneaking" out the side door like when you use to cut class in SCHOOL. :-)
OR, when they walk into your office and ask "Can I ask you a question?" You already have!!....LOL

Thanks for the comment Mark! I have been reading and just went back to comment today!
Yeah, the "can I ask you a question....." Sometimes (all the time) I wish I had a door!

What about "Have a good night?" I say that! I do say Goodnight sometimes out of habit if someone in the office says it to me :) I don't like it after I say it, but it is just instinct to repeat it!

E. I have SO many pet peeves. It is rather ridiculous. I think I need therapy!

The way people eat is one. Enough said.

I don't like when people just stand behind you waiting for you to turn around instead of saying excuse me. Someone always will stand right behind me, sometimes for awhile before I catch them out of the corner of my eye. WTF?!

I HATE when people see me eating lunch at my desk and say "Oh, you are eating lunch, huh? Well I have a question, it shouldn't take long, but I can ask later if you want." UM, since you already interrupted me even though you clearly saw I was eating just ask the damn question!!

Yeah, I could keep going! heehee

WK - not a lot makes me happier than comments like these. You are too funny!

"I don't like it after I say it." HILARIOUS!

Ooooh. This is a good one. I agree wholeheartedly.

I hate, "Did you get my email?

You can pretty much ASSUME that I received your email since it's ELECTRONIC mail and it AUTOMATICALLY SHOWS UP in my inbox. Just ask me what you want to know.

"Did you READ my email?

Or better yet, "Do you even CARE about my email?"

Both answers are no.

The email question is SUPER ANNOYING. Email is not instant messenger people. If I have not replied, that means I don't have an answer for you or am still working on it or have not read it!! ANNOYING.
