I went out to dinner last night with an old boss, who called me up and was having some personal issues and really needed to talk to me. We were very close when I worked for her, but she was way too much into my biz back then, calling herself my "Mother" and I eventually had to request for another 'boss'...but we still remained close! But being with her last night brought up the two WORST pet peeves I hate the most...1)If you mother taught you anything, it was to never (and I mean NEVER) talk with food in your mouth!!!! For God sakes, chew it, swallow it, then talk to me. I love seafood, just don't care to SEE your food!!! Not to mention as your shoveling it in your mouth, it's grossly all over your mouth, and bits and pieces are flying at me...so, I literally had to tune her out, and talk myself thru this fiasco and just focus on her EYES...do not look at her mouth!!!! Which brings me to pet peeve #2, if you must blow your nose, please, please, PLEASE excuse yourself and go outside or to the bathroom...just get away from ME. There is nothing worse than talking to someone face to face, while they blow into a tissue...the sound alone makes me want to gag right now...but when I'm EATING, I must say that right there is just plain WRONG....where are your manners...etiquette?!
