Better a day late with the podcast post than never, right? We generally keep it positive on Best of Both Worlds, but today’s episode is all about our pet peeves. A pet peeve, according to the dictionary, is something that bothers you, in particular, far beyond what would be expected based on how others react to it. We all have them…and in this episode we talk about them!
For instance, I can’t stand movies/TVs playing in public places where you are forced to watch and listen. In keeping with the nature of pet peeves, this doesn’t bother Sarah at all! She gets particularly riled up by printers failing and pens smudging. Then there are the work texts sent on nights and weekends about non-urgent things. I get way more worked up about the wrong form of you’re/your (or the direction “resonate” is used…) than I should probably admit.
Anyway, we all have pet peeves, and sometimes listing them is an exercise in self-awareness. Or at least a reminder to laugh at some of them!
In the question section, we address a query from a listener who is dealing with the financial ramifications of a divorce, and trying to figure out how she should change her budget. We also (earlier in the episode) discuss Sarah’s upcoming birthday (not a milestone one this time!). If you’d like to wish her a happy birthday, she’d appreciate a review or rating wherever you listen to podcasts!
