Biggest Pet Peeve? This One Gets Montanans Fired Up The Most.
Let's be honest here, we all have something that other people do that really gets on our nerves or a "pet peeve". While there are certain "pet peeves" that seem to be odd or unique to a certain individual, there are others that seem to be more universal when it comes to their level of annoyance.
For me, nothing gets under my skin more so than the "eye roll".
To make things worse, every weekday morning I work with Megan, my radio partner and I'm guessing at least 4 times per day I get the Megan Eye Roll. So what is the Megan Eye Roll? Well, you start out with the typical rolling of the eyes multiplied by 10 with a dose of steroids.
However, that's enough about me, what tops the list of the biggest pet peeve for Montanans?
According to some research done by Zippia last year, Montanans do not like those who brag. "Bragging" is the biggest pet peeve for Montanans. Oh, and we're not alone, our friends over in North Dakota say bragging is their number one pet peeve as well. I mean let's be honest, no one really likes a bragger, right? Someone who continues to go on and on about themselves while patting themselves on the back about how great they are can wear on a person's nerves rather quickly.
So what about the rest of the region?
Well, down in Wyoming the thing that really gets them going is passive-aggressive behavior. In Utah, they're not big fans of PDA or public displays of affection. For the rest of the west the thing that really gets them going, their biggest pet peeve? Slow internet.
Slow internet is a big pet peeve of mine and is almost at the top of the list....right under the eye roll. What's your biggest pet peeve? What is something that if someone does totally ticks you off? Are you like the majority of Montanas and despise bragging, or is there something else that bothers you more?
