No, it's not the potato chips and Pop-tarts themselves. It's the packaging! I can not stand to hear the rattling of the package. For example, if someone is sitting beside me and they keep sticking their hand inside the package to get some chips out. I hate the sound every time their hand reaches in the bag.... over and over again.... so annoying! If you are sitting by me and you eat a Pop-tart (or anything else in a package), please, please remove it from the package and put it on a paper towel. I hate the crinkling sound of each time someone reaches for more. I know, it's crazy! oh well.
My kids and husband have pretty much gotten used to me saying, "That gets on my nerves!" When I was teaching and it was snack time, my students knew the routine from day one....no packages!! Either use a Zip lock bag (not nearly as much noise) or put it on a paper towel. If they didn't know what a pet peeve was before they came to third grade, they went home from the start with a new vocabulary word. Plus, they got a good laugh out of it.
I am not alone when it comes to stuff like this. Some favorite annoyances shared on the Internet are:
- People who drive under the speed limit.
- People who block the aisles in Wal-mart, talking
- Pens clicking
- Smacking food
- People who take up two parking spaces
- SO many more!!
