I Wear My Sunglasses At Night…..

TODAY'S POST IS PROVIDED BY A GUEST WITH A PET PEEVE.  THIS WORK IS CONTRIBUTED BY MR. W.

I don’t have anything against wearing sunglasses.  There are many benefits, including the overall health of your eyes, being able to see when the sun is shining right on you, especially while sun tanning on some awesome beach, or just looking good! 

However, when none of the above applies and you are still wearing the sunglasses, you have entered the peeve zone, and you are now in danger of getting a ticket.  The ticket you get is something you don’t see, but everyone around you does.  It’s a big “DORK” sign hanging around your neck.  To avoid being that person there are just a few basic rules to abide by:

1.       No sunglasses inside unless you’re Jack Nicholson.  He has earned the right, you have not.

                                                        Winner.

 Loser.

2.       No sunglasses at night, unless you had a top 40 hit with the same title.
                                         Yes.

                                        No.

3.       Last, but not least, if it is raining you need to take them off, unless you are Claudia Schiffer.
                                                  She can pull it off.

                                                 You can’t.

While this is a pet peeve, it is also kind of a public service announcement.  Trust me when I say, no one thinks you look cool when you break any one of these three simple rules for the wearing of sunglasses.  If you’re inside, if it is nighttime, or if it is raining, take ‘em off.  Otherwise wear the heck out of them.  Although, I can’t guarantee that that invisible sign around your neck won’t still be there.

I am one of Elizabeth's neighbors - yes, she is spreading the word of your pet peeves - and I just had to post that this one was hilarious...and very true. Though I think you could use the first pic to come up with pet peeves to last a week!

I agree - I'm not even sure where to start with that picture. And I'm pretty sure that banana hammock has a zipper. (I shudder at the thought)
