Weeny Peeves

Glad Tidings, Anyone reading. Please add your own 'Weeny Peeve', here, and VENT about it, if needs must. A Small (weeny) thing, which is irritating (peevish)... enough to be irritating, yet not so large as to breakdown One's life... I shall try examples of what I mean, thusly:

...Packets which say:"Pull here to open" --- Yet upon pulling, only the "Pull Here" part opens, and One must resort to the use of tools such as Scissors to open the rest of the darn thing.

...That floating bit of FLUFF which just *will not land* and so can constantly evade being swept up or cleaned away. (Vacuum Cleaners must be employed, here.)

...Things which state that they cost under "X" amount of money, yet only because they cost "X minus 1 plus 99-pence"... The saving of just 1 Pence is ALWAYS touted loudly as a bargain!

...TV Shows which are fictional but when beginning to discuss a real-life impasse, it is as if the writers know this and so change the subject... usually with something loud/dramatic/exploding.

...Not something I myself do, but have often seen done: When eating something "crunchy", upon the first bite, the rest of it fairly disintegrates so much that collecting the fragments is no longer worth any nutrition gained from the effort.

... Even if no-one else replies, I Myself may add to this Thread, now that I have started it, for everyday things. Good Fortune and Stay Safe, All.

  • This is an "Assembly-Line Errors" post for this Thread, maybe.
    When buying a box full of Tea-Bags or Sandwiches, and finding one or two which are half done. That is... one Tea Bag is twice as big, yet almost devoid of Tea, followed by the next one which is a bag bulging with Tea Leaves yet is as if already opened (i.e. too small to fit what had just been missed before). And of sandwiches, I once encountered a box of two wraps, one was normal, one was 1/2 size... the shopping assistant just gave a shrug at it... :/

    Of Toilet Roll / Tissues... surely all of Us (Human) here, have encountered this at some point. When the pristine-clean white(ish) stock, has one part in it with a very large dark blemish/"thing" on it. (...so what was that "thing" before it got squashed in the factory rollers, maybe...?) ...

    Finally, concerning BREAD... the staple foods for ('Civilised') Humans for about 10,000 Years, now. This includes Rice Bread. The Weeny-Peeve here is... Getting a nice thick slice of 'End', but then getting only a thin sliver of a slice of Other 'End' in the same "Loaf". Also, about Wholemeal Bread... too many "Weeny Peeves" to mention, yet *the* biggest is getting a slice which is just a "brown" thing (a soft slice with nothing in it)... then the next Slice is jam-packed with all sorts of Tough & bizarre Seeds/ Wheaty/Ricey-Additives & Hard-Bits. Yes this is "healthy and wholesome" but I can neither cook nor chew it, sorry... (!)

    ...The same could be said about "Juice With Bits", but I am not adding that, Nerrr. (Juice with accidentally too many "bits" is akin to drinking Soup, but, as I said, this Post is about Assembly Line Errors and it is just a "Weeny Peeve"... so We must Live And Learn...and Cope.)

    This reminds Me... Those who eat Breakfast & wash dishes will know about this last: ...'Dried-On' Weetabix/Cereal, or just Egg... certainly is a thing as tough as Iron and worth starting another Thread about concerning "Peeves", surely...?
