Britmums have started a weekly blog hop in which they give a prompt to answer, this helps those of us who are short on inspiration or looking to do something different.
This weeks prompt is....my biggest pet peeve is........
Well I have two big ones, but one is soon to be obsolete or at least less of a problem but the other will remain. My peeves are shops or public areas not designed for pushchairs and rude people.
The frustration of trying to navigate a shop or area which is clearly not big enough to manouve a pushchair, the worst are those stores which put up displays in the middle of the floor such as shoe shops. This leaves me with the inevitable choice to leave my child alone by the door, having to carry her around or to leave the shop without the items I need. This is a situation which always leaves me feeling frustrated and an unvalued or unconsidered customer.
My other peeve is rude people, really annoys me, manners dont cost anything. Doesnt matter if it is that person cutting you up on the road or the person who doesnt understand 'personal space', it is just bad education and unnecessary. A 'please and thank you' are not difficult. But I think it is a problem which is becoming worse these days. Less children seem to be being taught good manners, whether it is bad parenting or a sign of society.
