Got Pet Peeves? Well, Then Enter THIS Giveaway!

Yeah, I said, "giveaway."  Another one!

I know!  Shut the front door, right?

This month we (meaning all of us over here at F&S) are getting HOOKED UP!  The Back To School Giveaway madness continues with this totally fun new app for the iPhone that may just save you from punching someone in the neck on one of those days.

The app is called Her Pet Peeves and already you're nodding your head and thinking, "I have some of those."

Come onnnn....I know you do.

It's kind of like Whack-A-Mole, except you're popping bubbles that fly by on your screen.  Some of the bubbles have "preening studs" which in my mind translates to "self-absorbed douche bags."  Other bubbles have a symbol for bad dates.  But the best part, THE BEST PART is that you get to enter your OWN PET PEEVES.

Translation: you can very easily and quickly take or upload photos of your own pet peeves and have them also float by on the screen in bubbles just waiting to be popped.  Seriously, they are calling your name and just asking for it.  Asking. For. It.

Immediately, I uploaded photos of several choice individuals who are featured here on this blog, took a photo of the copy machine, another picture of my cluttered desk (GASP!), another picture of an overflowing garbage can (GAK!) and another picture of (deep breath) a pile of dried up pens.

As the images of my pet peeves flew by on the screen, I tap tap tapped my way to a good mood.  I even found myself talking at the screen...you know, a few well placed, "take thats" and "suck its."  It may sound silly, but it works.  And it won't get you in trouble, but punching someone in the neck will.

Here's some info about the app:



"Know someone at work who thinks they're super important, when all they really do is make everyone's life more difficult? How about a boss that decides to dump work on you the Friday before a 3-day weekend? Now you can burst their bubble by playing Her Pet Peeves™! Pop away too much work, your annoying boss and much more! Cartoon-style animals represent the types of people who annoy you and the goal is to burst their bubble before time runs out. You can also go back and re-visit previous stages as many times as you like either for fun, or to beat your previous scores. You can even upload images of your personal peeves and they become a part of the game!"

My co-worker says, "Also too. . . " at the beginning of most of her sentences. Drives me CRAZY!!! They're synonyms!!!! ARGH!!!! :) I feel better now.

Grammar errors = just poke me in the eye!

People (supposedly professionals) who talk nonstop during training/meetings/PD, etc.! So frustrating!!!

One of my peeves is colleagues that don't read their e-mails and then complain that they never know what is going on...

Books That Heal Kids said...

I hate it when my colleagues talk smack in the staff lunch room about kids. GROSS!

Well, after another fabulous inservice day, I can say my pet peeves are sitting though meetings about subjects I don't teach, and writing ideas on post-its that you are then instructed to carry around the room to "share" with people you don't know. Just give me the info and leave me alone...grrrr.

My pet peeve is WORK WEEK. Too many meetings. Too much B.S. The same teachers that tell the same stories. Over and over. Year after year. "Well, in my classroom, ....." or "One year I had a student that...."
Meanwhile, we are all trying to get out of the meeting because low and behold, we do have our classrooms to get ready and lesson plans to make.
My other pet peeve is BASAL readers. Our school just spent way too much money for a new BASAL reading program. Um, hello!!!!!! Does anyone else feel like that?
Thanks for letting me vent. I needed that!
