Gear Grinding on a Friday Morning

Hello, Peter Griffin here, coming to you with another edition of:
"What Really Grinds My Gears"

[one] Anyone who uses the phrase, "lesbihonest" or "lezbehonesthere" or "lesbireal" or anything similar to that.  Every time I see "lez" or "les" I immediately think you are going to write lesbian. Get over your abbrevs, people,  I mean Whattheflippityfriggeneff!? <--- Yeah, that grinds my gears too.

[two] Please #stop #hashtagging #eight #hundred  #words #on #your #instagram #photos. No one cares what the picture caption says, even if it is funny and witty.  NO ONE CARES. #JUST #STOP, OK?

[three] You know another thing that really grinds my gears? When idiots squeeze the toothpaste tube, FROM THE MIDDLE.  I mean, is it really that hard to make it nice and uniform by squeezing from the end?  And while on that subject, don't even get me started with globbers of toothpaste in the sink. 

[four] What is it with people who just walk out in the middle of the road? I'm pretty sure one of the first rules we learned in elementary school was to look both ways before crossing the street, am I correct? So, how is it, that HUMAN ADULTS have forgotten this very important rule of life? And another thing that's recently been grinding those gears...DO NOT TEXT AND WALK. YOU ARE A JERK. I HOPE SOMEONE SPILLS THEIR HOT COFFEE ON YOU BECAUSE YOU AREN'T LOOKING!

[five] You want to know what really, Really, REALLY grinds my gears?? Getting a phone call at 9:30 in the morning asking me "What's for dinner?".  I wish I had an answer for you but.. GEE, I DON'T KNOW, I didn't even finish my coffee. DINNER is the LAST thing that's on my mind!!! Can't you come up with an idea?!?! (LOVE You Mike! XOXO baha).

[six] Seriously, SERIOUSLY??? I've said it on the blog before, and I'll say it again: IT'S STILL FREAKING SUMMER PEOPLE. STOP. NOW. I don't give a crap how BADLY you are craving a pumpkin spiced latte (can we say ew??) and leggings with boots, and scarves around your necks. It is freaking AUGUST 9th. JUST. STOP.

[seven] Alex Rodriguez, Evereth Cabrera, Jhonny Peralta, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera... Need I say more?  How are these idiots making millions and taking steroids and STILL can play after a minimum suspension of at least 50 games? How is that fair? What's worse, they can appeal this shit and still play?! SCREW YOU. I'm so sick of hearing about all these MLB players taking performance enhancers, it just really grinds my gears, what can I say?

Well. I guess that's all I have for you today.  Thank you for tuning in, and hopefully we will be returning to the regular scheduled programming of The Peanut Program, Monday at 8am EST. Adios amigos!


  1. Only thing worse than a million hashtag's on IG photo's and is on FB!!!

  2. I might be guilty of the abbrevs - at least I'm honest. I blame it on 140 twitter characters.

  3. I am so guilty of pinning fall outfits. I guess I'm pinning them because it's whats in the popular feed right now. But you're right, it's still summer and I'm still rocking my short shorts, so why rush a season!! I'll stop pinning fall outfits, just for you. :)

  4. #ihearthastags

    I can't stand people who are incapable of following the rules for walking on the sidewalk.

  5. YESSSS to text and walking- hate that! And if you're going to do it, at least move to the side so I can breeze by you and your slow-walking self! And Fall Pinning- um, I love summer. I don't want to be reminded of cooler weather coming. (Plus, I just saw CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS the other day. For real.) What ever happened to living in the moment?!

  6. New follower here :-) OMG yes the toothpaste and the hashtags. Out of control and so annoying!

  7. Yes yes yes! I could not agree more with these, especially the hashtags! I wrote a whole post on the proper use of hashtags once, haha. Except, I think when people say "lesbihonest" they're trying to make it sound like lesbian? At least I am, because I'm referencing Pitch Perfect! lol

    Also, I tagged you in this Liebster award thing on my blog today; check it out! :)

  8. Blue ink, always blue ink! I was just complaining loudly at Target last night how I cannot find the pens I want in blue ink and it makes me sad.
