My pet hates

There are lots of things I am not too fond of, most I can smooth over with copious amounts of chocolate and on occasion wine!

I hate going for a walk and the place being covered in dog mess!  I wish people could pick up after themselves and make the place that much more pleasant.  The worst time was on a beach, digging in the sand and uncovering a giant pile of it hidden (stealth dog poo is the worst!).  Since then sand castle building has lost most of its shine… its scary just how dangerous dog poo is too!  I am all for the campaign by Keep Britain Tidy to make the place much cleaner and safer for children to play.

I am not keen on my hubbie moaning at me to come off the computer and give him some attention, when he has spent the entire evening engrossed in a computer game or a series of CSI episodes wearing headphones ignoring me completely!!!  I think I need to start a more attentive hubbie campaign!

When I am out shopping I am unimpressed when I see people parking randomly around the place.  No one in bays, some just parked as close as they can humanely get to the entrance.  I always find it hard negotiating the car park at the best of times with my two young boys pulling me in different directions.  I think some people seem set for staying the long haul too, with no interest in leaving after the two hour time frame to do your food shop (seriously I bring no list and go back and fourth in the aisles looking lost and I only take one hour!).  No one is keen on parking fines of course but without parking solutions I think most people would take advantage.

It is a shame it takes a fine to change behaviour but if its means the pavements are free of poop and the car park has space available for the disabled then I think some tough love is in order!

  1. I completely agree - I hate dog mess and if I see someone not cleaning up their dog's mess I go straight up to them and tell them! There is nothing worse than having it trailed through the house if the kids have stood in it. I clear up after my dog and others should do too! It is part of being a responsible dog owner!
