Friday Five baby!
What is your biggest pet peeve? Why?
Hmmm, I actually have a lot of pet peeves. Some would say I am kind of neurotic about them, especially anything having to do with cleanliness. I can not stand seeing a dirty window, mirror or television screen. It will keep on bugging me until I clean it myself and make sure I can eat off of it. 😆 I also can not stand messy rooms and will usually forgo going out for an evening just to make sure the place is clean. Hey, it’s better than being a filthy slob. 😆
Concerning the lovely computer world, nothing irritates me more than someone stating before anything else:
“Forgive me, but I am totally computer illiterate,” or something along those lines…
Well duh!!! Chances are if your calling me for help, you do not know what you are doing and you need help. I am already going to assume you are a total numb nuts and need me to hold your hand though what a double-click is (you’d be surprised folks how many times I need to describe what a double-click is… you’d really be surprised). Stating that only ensues the wrath of the techie upon you in a most menacing fashion.
Here’s a nice little tidbit of advice from your friendly neighborhood Latino IT guy. When calling up tech support, never, ever, ever, ever utter that phrase of death. Only doing so will simply make us play want to with you that much more and make your call quite an excruciating experience. 😉 Simply stating, “I need help” and giving us lots of details regarding your problem will get ya on our good side real fast.
What irritating habits do you have?
Hmmm, I really do not know. I suppose Ada and Steph will gladly comment on this one as they have lived with me in the past. Right off the bat, I would say my extraordinary attentiveness to keeping my living area clean will piss off a lot of people.
Have you tried to change the irritating habits or just let them be?
Regarding the neat thing, hell no. People will just have to deal with it. Actually, most girlfriends loved the fact that I would do all of the house chores for them to satiate my clean-freakishness.
What grosses you out more than anything else? Why?
A very dirty bathroom does it real nice and quick. Otherwise I do not ever get grossed out.. Many have tried, all have failed except for my sister. I completely forgot how the hell she managed to gross me out, but she did it when I was in high school.
What one thing can you never see yourself doing that other people do?
Extreme sports… I just don’t get it. Those people are just way too bored with their lives…
