3 Major Pet Peeves & Leaving House Without Pants (TOL)


thinking out loud

I have 3 major pet peeves in life.

#1 – Toothpaste in the sink. I can’t even type that without wanting to vomit. The toothpaste is either in the tube nicely or you brush your teeth and I never see it again. It does not belong in the sink, especially any sink that I may encounter. If there’s toothpaste left in the sink, you are doing something wrong.

#2 – Playing ball in the house.

My son may know better than to leave toothpaste in the sink but he LOVES to torture me by playing ball in the house. It doesn’t matter that I say NO (saying NO the same way I did when he was three no longer works) or that I confiscate every ball I can get my hands on.

Lately, it’s street hockey in the house. Really? Does my living room look like a rink?



And my #3 Pet Peeve: Pants.

I hate pants.

People and pants actually. Does this count as 4 pet peeves then?

hate everyone and pants quote

There are some pants I like more than some people and some people I like more than some pants.

Regardless, I didn’t have the patience for pants the other morning when I needed a cup of coffee from Dunkin Donuts.

So I didn’t wear any. Is that too much information?


I mean, really, I went to the Dunkin Donuts drive thru just up the road. No one knew that I didn’t have pants on. I was however, wearing a big, comfy sweatshirt.

Isn’t it entirely possible that I had shorts or a bathing suit hiding underneath?

Aren’t underpants the same concept as a bikini bottom? Plenty of people leave the house in a bathing suit without pants so why can’t my way of leaving the house briefly be acceptable too?

And let’s be honest here. There are way too many girls wearing shorts these days that could double as underwear anyway. So I was technically no different from them at this point.

My mother is going to call me about this, isn’t she. I’m 39 though! I can leave the house without pants on if I want to!

    My best friend did that once and then had a flat tire, need I say anymore?!. This post made me and if you only knew how I could use the laugh this morning. Have a great day.

    I SO feel you with the balls in the house—especially when we have a backyard perfect for all of the sports activity that seems to want to happen inside. And hockey too–why INSIDE???It makes me nuts! I just put “said” balls/hockey pucks/baseball gloves in the cabinet while the kids are at camp….!! At least a temporary break from the insanity.

    Have a great day!

      I have a big bin of the balls and pucks I’ve confiscated but this time, I had to throw the ball out the front door lol. he found it but I have since taken that one out of sight too!

    I totally would leave the house without pants on but I wear thong underwear–it’s the only kind I wear. I agree with you about the ball in the house and the toothpaste in the sink! IT DRIVES ME INSANE!

    Hahahhaha omg Meredith, this post made me LOL! You are the kind of adult I aspire to be 😉
    Keep rockin’ the no pants look. And about the ball, you should make him an ultimatum. NO CHOP’T UNLESS HE STOPS THROWING THE BALL INDOORS. Good luck :p

    Hahaha. I love this so much! I HATE pants, and I too have been known to go through the Dunkin’ drive thru without pants on, no shame! haha! 😉 I am with you on the toothpaste in the sink thing, it does not belong there. And if it is there why didn’t someone clean it up? Isn’t the toothpaste supposed to go on your toothbrush and on your teeth? Lol

    Toothpaste disgusts me in the same way. Can I tell you about the time my bf put it back in the medicine cabinet without the cap all the way closed (and its one that stands on the cap)… I woke up in the morning and in my sleepy haze was like why does the bathroom smell so minty? woke up VERY quickly when I realize toothpaste had dripped all out of the tube, all through my cabinet and to the sink below. Made me want to vomit. I was cleaning with qtips. Ugh.
