My Pet Peeve

First off let me say I have a ton of pet peeves. I think I drive my family nuts with all my pet peeves. What does pet peeve mean anyway? It isn’t like I have a pet name Peeve. Where the heck did this come from? Anyone know?
Anyway - one of my many pet peeves is other drivers on the road. I wish I had the control to pull people over and ticket them! The cops always get the wrong ones! I swear I go 5 miles an hour over the speed limit and I get pulled over, some Jack in the box drives like a maniac and he is off without a cop in sight! So frustrating! So this morning I get up to an intersection and I am taking a right. To make it easy we will say I was going North bound. This Jack in the Box going South Bound also has a green light - but he wants to take a left. Who has the right of way? Me? I am closest to the lane I am going to take and do not need to cross any traffic to get to where I am going or the Jack in the box who has to cut across two lanes of traffic and almost plow my car so he can make it? We both got to the intersection at the same exact time. I think I have the right of way here, but the problem is that this happens to me all the time here in FL. I don’t get it? Am I wrong in my assumption that I have the right of way?

Here's a visual. What do you think?

All right - I know you all don't come here to read about my pet peeves without any nails. But since tonight is Sushi with the ladies, I think I will leave you all with the packing of my nail polishes. Sound fair?

Here is the box that needs to be filled:

Just use some old card board in between layers please. Here is layer 1

Cool - it looks like your separating them by brand. Thanks! Level 2

Here comes the final level - level 3

Oh and thanks for separating the untrieds and the ones for review on this blog in their own box!

(the sad thing is that there have been more added to this box. Oh wait - that's a happy thing!

Oh and how about I leave you with some nails of the day too!

My daughter felt a need to get in on the action. Here she is wearing China Glaze Solar Power with NFU-Oh 41 layered on top.

And here is my NOTD. OPI Lucky Lucky Lavendar

It looks pink in this picture. Putting my hand up to my PC and this picture - it has a small hint of purple to it.

Have a great evening everyone!


  1. Hmm, I'm not the best driver but I do believe if you had the green light you had the right of way!

    I seriously have only been driving about a year due to fear of other drivers. Ugh.

    Anyways, cute nails! Loving the yellow.

  2. You were so in the right! I hate crazy drivers and what makes it worse is that there were TWO lanes to choose from so why did he have to go into yours?!? Makes me nuts too.

    You get all types on the road but I am glad to see that nothing horrible happened!

    This was actually an interesting post & one that I am sure we ALL relate too!!

  3. aww! isn't lucky lucky lavender such a weird colour?! it's like.. is it pink? is it lilac? i do love it though, and it looks great on you!

  4. Gah! You have right of way, of course! It's not only common sense, but it's also in the traffic rules (over here). I would flip too if I came across such idiotic drivers.

    That is such a cute nail colour on your daughter's nails! Hee hee! Oh, ahem, of course, Mummy's nails look sophisticated in the last pic. :D
