Tango Diva : Travel Stories for Women, by Women

My Pet Peeves

Restaurants that have bathrooms a floor above or below the dining level. If I wanted to go on a hike, I wouldn’t have worn stilettos.

Women who take waaay too long in a single stall bathroom.

United Airlines

Men who want to go dutch and/or cheap on a first date. Do I want to ‘meet for coffee’? That depends- do you want to not get laid?

Cherished girlfriends who drop off the face of the earth when they get married/ get a boyfriend/ have kids.

Girls who shoot the messenger. If I tell you that your boyfriend booty called me last night, you best believe he did.

Our culture of obsolescence. I shouldn’t have to replace my ipod, computer, tv, cell phone and boyfriend every other year.

The pressure for female perfection. Doesn’t it count that my thoughts are a size 0? Oh, wait, that didn’t come out right…

Kill Bills 1& 2. Does said director really think he’s so hot and brilliant that he can’t confine himself to 2 1/2 hours for godsakes?

Car air fresheners. If your car smells, let’s address the underlying problem, shall we, before I end up smelling like strawberries on meth?

X-ray screening of luggage. After grappling with my Vuitton trunks and getting them, finally, to the check-in desk, do I really have to turn around and drag them to the x-ray area? Call me crazy, but this seems like a process that can be streamlined.

People who can’t multitask. Does talking on your cell phone while driving really mean that you can’t engage the gas pedal at all?

What are your pet peeves?
