Pet Peeves

Unfortunately for my overall mood I was just reminded of a pet peeve I've had well forever. When another person fiddles with your personal property and then tries to turn it around on you when you get mad by saying something like, "Well you shouldn't have left it out there then." Or in this case, "you shouldn't have left it where I could find it knowing I like it so much."

*grumble*

Or, quite possibly--
"You should keep your damn hands to yourself. Havn't you ever heard of boundaries!?"

Re: Or, quite possibly--
Exactly and the worst of it was it was someone who already knows my boundaries in this regard.

Whatever happened to "If you know it's not yours, don't touch it"?

Apparently the same thing that happened to "If mail is addressed to me, even though it contains something you've always wanted, you shall not open it."

My MIL is the queen of this. It's maddening. However if someone does something with her stuff she flips out.

Likewise with this person which is why this was the last straw.

I get that a lot, especially at work. I've had to resort to slapping hands and ramping up general bitchiness.

Somewhere along the line something slipped and now allows for this. I agree with you. A little threat of violence goes a long way to curbing this.

I'm a big fan of the spray-bottle approach. When they mess with your stuff, spritz 'em. It works on cats.

I think I'll fill mine with pepper spray.
