Pet Peeve of the Day


If you are at a doctors office or really just anywhere where there is a counter between you and the person you are doing business with, please, please, please do not ever lean over the counter and take a pen out of their pen holder. This is my personal space and my personal pens. If you need one ask me and I would be happy to offer you one of the office pens. Or better yet how about you use the one sitting right next to you on the counter? I am very picky when it comes to what pens I use and I don't like other people using them. I even hide them from my coworkers. It's kind of like the scene in "Serendipity" where John Cusak's character is at Macy's or something and tries to walk behind the counter. I totally felt for the the store clerk in that scene.

You are not alone. I am real picky about my pens too. They tease me at bunco because I always use my own pen. I completely understand this pet peeve!

Oh. My. Geez.
If someone did that to me, I'd explode.

"I /KNOW/ YOU DID NOT JUST TAKE THAT PEN FROM MY PEN CUP WITHOUT ASKING! THAT IS NOT ONE OF THOSE PENS CHAINED TO A COUNTER AT A BANK. THAT IS /MY/ PERSONAL PEN."

but on second thought, it's just a pen. but still, it's incredibly rude.
