1. PEOPLE WALKING SLOWLY

I’m brisk walker most of the time, so imagine how I feel when I’m trying to get somewhere on time and someone is determined to imitate the snail at my expense.

Walk fast? No.

Okay, shift to the side of the road, so I can move past you easily. No, I want you to admire my back. Maka why?

I usually have to increase my pace and almost go around them just to get in front of them, then I give them one side look…

2. CARD MAINTENANCE ALERTS
Here I am, about to give testimony about my rescue from ‘Brokelyn’, then UBA and GTBank will come together to spoil my joy. 2k just came in yesterday. Account balance before was N20. 4k. I’ve barely even stepped out of the door when the second alert comes in. N52 Debit for card maintenance. Come on, the card has been in my bag all this while. Who should be maintaining it? That’s how 2k turned to N1,950. A whole N500 ti jona.



3. INCOMPLETE MESSAGES

‘Hi’

‘Good morning’

That’s all.

Guy, we both know you didn’t just wake up on the right side of the bed and feel like greeting me. There was something on your mind. Why wait for me to reply first before saying what was on your mind? Why not just say pour out everything at the same time, so I’ll just reply ASAP?

These days, I don’t even reply these messages, or I only respond to those messages after responding to complete messages.



So those are my top 3 peeves. The list is much more comprehensive. I can be quite petty. *Smiles*
