Baby talk, bay talk it’s a wonder you can walk!!!
I am a positive person by nature so I try to not dislike too many things. I AM human so I do have a few pet peeves to list. Once again, because I am Up North for a long weekend with my family I had to switch up the daily topic. I don’t have my recipes or any old photos of me here Up North. I am picking and choosing from the Challenge list as I go.
Ok on with the Challenge for today, one of my biggest pet peeves is baby talk. Having 3 kids I have had to deal with a ton of it. My kids learned at a very young age that I WILL NOT tolerate any form of it. That however has not stopped my kid’s friends throughout the years from coming over and baby talking. I am never mean or angry except when it comes to kids and adults speaking like fake infants. If you think about it babies and toddlers don’t even talk like that. I think it’s an attention seeking thing; they only do it because they know it annoys people.
I have been known to ban my kids’ friends from coming back over to the house if they don’t stop while they are visiting. I most definitely have sang the song like a two year old, “baby talk, baby talk it’s a wonder you can walk” to many teenagers. I mean seriously! When they talk like babies it makes me turn into an angry two year old. I feel ridiculous for it but I can’t help it.
Another one of my pet peeves is negative people.
I am the first one to call someone out on being negative. This is kind of a catch twenty two considering my boyfriend is one of the most negative persons I’ve ever met. If he says something positive we all look at him like he’s grown a third head. I am a firm believer that if you are a positive person you live a happier more fulfilling life no matter what happens to you. Your outlook on life plays a big part in the things that happen to you. The more positive you act toward and around people the better they feel about themselves.
Being self-centered and conceded is another big one for me.
This trait in people is not only a big turn off, it is impossible to have a ‘normal’ conversation with someone like this. Have you ever tried to actually talk to someone that only cares about their own opinion or themselves? It is literally impossible. They tend to talk to hear themselves talk. There is now way you will ever be able to get your own opinion heard let alone considered. I am a talker by nature, but when it comes to a person like this I have finally learned it’s much easier to just let them go, smile and nod. It’s not even worth your breath to get in on the conversation they are having with themselves.
