Peevery is not a word, but I thought it had a better ring to it then just “Pet Peeve” for a title.
Obviously this post is about peeves, two in particular, double negatives and open mouth chewing.
I have already acknowledged on this site that I am NO grammar expert. My punctuation sucks balls, but that does not mean that I do not notice or get annoyed when folks verbally f-ck up the English language. Thus bringing us to my first peeve of the night.
ex: “I couldn’t see nothing.”
“Seriously I did not like none of those cars.”
(My personal fave ) “I didn’t do nothing.” Well, if it’s nothing than obviously you couldn’t do it! no one can it doesn’t exist!
This peeve is inherited(long story don’t ask) and I know many people who share my dislike for it.
Chewing with your mouth open:
It sounds like such a petty thing I know, but when you’re at an event or meeting your bf’s/gf’s family and all anyone hears is a glottal lip smacking horse-like display…well, trust me when I say the day will not end well for the Mr. Ed in the room.
