Day 2 of the Ultra Blog Challenge
Everyone has pet peeves and today I am listing my top 5 and dare you to share yours.
1. Sniffing ((also included people who don't cover their mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing).
I really get irritated if I hear someone sniffing. If it's one of my family - I will always ask them to stop sniffing and use a tissue, But when that happens in a public place especially on the trains or tubes then I can't stand it!! I feel like shouting STOP SNIFFING
That reminds me - there are always attractive girls handing out packets of free tissues in Japan. You would never be of of tissues in Japan!
2. People who leave trolleys in car parks
I get very annoyed when people do not take their trolleys back to the trolley collection point. Some supermarkets have now started to charge for the trolleys which probably ensures that the trolley is returned to the right place.
Read this article about "Track-a-trolley" app which enables people to report an abandoned supermarket trolley cluttering up a riverbank, street or road by taking a photo and then a GPS signal will give its exact location.
3. Slurping/burping/eating with their mouth open
All of the above make me cringe!! Burping or slurping soup, actions which are considered impolite in Western culture, are part of Chinese eating and are generally interpreted as complimentary signs. But it's a big NO NO in my home.
4. People who let their children run around in restaurants and shops
When I go for a meal or shopping, I want to enjoy the time and do not wish to see screaming kids running wild. Apart from disturbing everyone - it's unsafe for them to run in restaurants where hot food is being served. And when I am shopping, I don't want to run over anyone's kids either. Some parents put their kids inside trolleys!! Kids with shoes inside trolleys is unhygienic. Some one else is going to use that trolley after them and take home someone's germs for free!!

5. People not flushing the loo or not washing their hands after using the loo
OMG I won't even write too much about this!! How can anyone be so inconsiderate and unhygienic?
This morning when I was discussing pet peeves with my family, we came up with a lot more but the above 5 are my Top 5. Do feel free to share your in the comments below and I will do an updated post giving credit to you later this month.
