10 Holiday Pet Peeves All Of Us Have Told By Friends
Are you hosting your holiday party this year or are you going to a holiday party? Either way, your biggest pet peeves will be revealed and you aren't alone.
I feel we all have the same holiday pet peeves because everyone basically deals with the same type of stuff with their families and friends. The crazy aunt, your grandpa is telling you how to cook, your cousin is stealing your beer and thinks there is no problem, and so much more. Here are the top 10 biggest pet peeves we all basically have during the holidays with gifs from Friends to help explain because why not..
1. Putting up with your relatives
Since I basically mentioned them already, let's start with them! We all love our family members, but we only see them once a year for a reason.... Sure, it's great to see everyone but it's also great to not get asked by all your aunts, uncles, cousins and your parents because they forgot, "why don't you have a boyfriend/girlfriend?"
2. People, people and more people
Why does everyone feel the need to do the same thing and be at Walmart or Target doing last minute shopping? Or why is EVERY HUMAN TRYING TO RETURN SOMETHING AT THE SAME TIME?!?!? So many people, so little patience...
3. Terrible drivers, holiday traffic and parking lots
I always want to blame people for sucking at driving because of the snow, but we get snow every year!!! Why do people forget how to drive in it?! Even if we don't have snow, it's like Mars is out a retrograde but the month of December stays there and causes everyone to drive like idiots. Also, you know how to use a parking lot. Stop pulling into each row the wrong way like you've just learned how a car works...
4. Being broke
Do yourself a favor... don't open up your bank app on your phone until like October of next year. If you still need to get your shopping done, Target, Walmart, Kohls and other stores have plenty of $5 gag gifts.
5. The same 5 Christmas songs that people only half know
I am by no means Beyonce but if you don't know how to sing, then don't sing 1 of the 5 Christmas songs we all kind of know just randomly! And think about it, do you know all the lyrics to Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, We Wish You A Merry Christmas or any of them? There is always a line or 2 we all forgot...
6. Having to work all day every day to pay for all of it
It's the holiday season and we want to use our unused vacation like every other person in the workforce! Why do we have to constantly work and work and work just to satisfy family we kind of like and by gifts that no one will ever use? That's it!! I'm still going shopping....
7. Gaining that wonderful holiday weight
Just think of that new years resolution you're going to try... again.... Just pace yourself when it comes to food....
HAHAHA that was funny! Good luck though and trying to stay away from the cookies.
8. Having so much to do and no time to do it
If it's not work, it's school, shopping, cleaning, cooking, laundry, trying to sleep, decorating, back to work, and all of the things just to have some "holiday cheer".
9. The people who are impossible to shop for... even significant others
Listen, I'm a guy and every year my significant other asks "what do you want for Christmas?" and I tell her "cologne and whatever else you want." I get the eye roll and a loud "JUST TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT! YOU'RE SO HARD TO SHOP FOR!" As a person who is hard to shop for, resort back to #4 and those $5 gag gifts...
10. Putting up and taking down the decorations
You ask yourself at the end of every holiday season, why did I even put this crap up? I really think the next big business to take off is decorating and tearing down decorations during the holidays.
Happy holidays and don't forget, Friends leaves Netflix January 1st, 2020!
