Hello, all. Today we have a new episode of the inglesonline podcast. Please subscribe to this podcast using the Podcasts app for iPhone or iPad, or listen to the episodes using the Inglesonline Android app.
So today let’s talk about pet peeves. What is a pet peeve? Well, a peeve is something that irritates you, that annoys you, that maybe aggravates you. What about a pet peeve, though? A pet peeve is like… your favorite peeve. It’s that thing that frequently annoys you or that annoys you the most. You know, some things kinda irritate you once in a while, depending on your mood… But your pet peeve: every time that one happens in front of you, you get irritated. It really annoys you, every time, without fail.
So do you have a pet peeve? Let’s take a look at a few things people said online. Here’s what one girl tweeted: “My biggest pet peeve is when people don’t answer their phone”. Well, I have to say… sometimes, that’s me. I don’t always answer my cell phone. And that happens because I often go out without my cell phone. Yep, sometimes I leave it home… the horror! I’ve had friends get mad at me for not answering the phone. Too bad. So, is that a pet peeve of yours? Are you annoyed when someone doesn’t answer their phone?
Here’s what someone else said: “My biggest pet peeve? Judgemental people“. If you’ve been listening to our podcasts for a while then you’re familiar with the word judgemental. Or maybe you’re familiar with it because you listen to English on a regular basis and the word judgemental is such a common word. Judgemental people criticize a lot, they judge other people a lot and that honestly can be really annoying. So this guy said that judgemental people are his pet peeve.
And here’s an interesting one… This guy said “My biggest pet peeve is when I’m watching a movie with someone and they’re asking me what’s going on. We’re watching the same thing”. Does that sound familiar? You and a friend, or girlfriend, or boyfriend are watching a movie together and the other person keeps asking “Why did he do that?” or “Wait… where are they?” or “Who’s that? I don’t remember him”. You know, people get distracted and maybe they think some parts of the movie are boring… so they end up missing an important dialogue or scene and when they go back to paying attention – they’re lost. I totally understand how that can be annoying to people who are super focused on the story though. So is that a pet peeve of yours?
Me… A pet peeve of mine is people who talk in the movie theater. I find that a little annoying. What else…? People who take up the entire space of the aisle in the supermarket – you know? They kinda block other people’s way with the shopping cart and it’s like they don’t even realize there are other people shopping… That’s a pet peeve of mine.
It’s your turn now. What is your pet peeve? Come on, tell us in the comments and talk to you next time!
