The dreaded, the annoying, and the "I'm going to run you over"

Oh, pet peeves: I have many. In the interest of not sounding like a whiny brat, I'll keep it to three big ones:
SHORT NAP SYNDROME - when the girls fall asleep at such a time when it's inevitable that they will wake up a few minutes later, "resetting" their nap cycle. In Carina's case, this means all we'll get from her all day is that crappy 5 minute nap. Try to put her back down? Not a chance. UGH. I swear this is the story of my life when we're coming back from a play date too close to nap time. She'll fall asleep in the car and I haven't successfully transferred her to the crib in months.

When you put me in the car seat I'm going to wake up ANGRY
THE CLOSE BUT NOT QUITE - Mike has a tendency to throw his laundry on the floor...just inches away from our hamper. Or to load the dishwasher in such a way that multiple plates/cups/spoons don't get completely clean. It's really not that big of a deal unless you border on OCD {like I seem to}. I cannot stand having laundry on the floor or even worse -- a messy dishwasher. MUST.REARRANGE. I wrote a whole post about husbandly half-asseries once. Heh. I think I just invented a word.

"That's your HOME! Are you too good for your home? ANSWER ME"
SLOW WALKERS - yo, people walking ridiculously slowly in front of me: speed up, or move out of the way. I don't want to have to think when I walk and your ambling at such variant speeds has me on edge, contemplating if I need to pull back on the stroller in order to avoid clipping at your ankles. And for the love of all that is holy don't just stop when I'm right behind you or my giant Baby Jogger City Mini Double is going to run you over. And I probably won't be sorry about it.

What are your pet peeves?
