Some things just shouldn’t be seen on television…

After seeing Craig Sager cover the NBA playoffs again on TNT, I just had to start shaking my head. I am not a fan of tacky attire, but this takes it to another level. If I had long hair, looking Craig Sager on television would make me pull that hair out.

Here are four of the many clothing combinations which Sager has had to audacity to wear on national television. Beware this is graphic!

WTF!! At Fenway Park.

Now, everyone understands where I am coming from.

Kevin Garnett says exactly what I’d want to say if I ever catch anyone who I know wearing something that looks like anything which seen above.

Some things are just timeless…

Don’t make me repeat myself…

So, I was at an orientation for New York Cares, a volunteer program in the city and one of my biggest pet peeves from school came up. This peeve is people asking the same damn questions over and over again.

I understand that I can be extremely impatient and that’s probably a contributing cause for my hating to repeat myself.  In addition to hating repeating myself, I thoroughly dislike hearing people repeat the same things over and over. Thankfully, I’ve become adept and tuning this out because it drives my crazy! In high school, I wanted to go over the students who asked the same questions over and over and strangle them.

I understand that people don’t pick things up at the same speed, but most of the time people who repeat the same questions over and over just aren’t paying attention. Just pay attention!

A common saying among people who speak in front of groups often is “there is no such thing as a bad question.” Bullshit! If someone ask a question one time, the following four times someone else asks that same question (with different wording sometimes) it’s a bad question.

Please people, pay attention when people are addressing you, so you don’t have to make them repeat themselves.

Clapping and talking? Just don’t…

After watching a segment of the Maury Show today, I found yet another pet peeve of mine. This peeve doesn’t bother me as much as some of the other ones I’ve mentioned in other posts, but it’s definitely annoying nonetheless. What I am referring to clapping while talking.

Clapping while talking is a pet peeve of mine because it’s extremely unattractive. People who clap while talking are loud for the simple fact that they’re trying to talk above the clapping noises they’re making. And being too loud is definitely an unattractive quality in my book.

In addition, clapping while talking is a misguided way to get your point across.  I know from personal experience I’ve never paid any more attention to what someone was saying because they were clapping.

Furthermore, clapping while talking shows a lack of intelligence. Look at the people who you see clap and talk and ask yourself what you think of them.

Just don’t clap while you talk. For my sake and for everyone else.
