The trending Twitter hashtag #WaysToPissMeOff revealed to girls that boys have many of the same pet peeves as us when in a relationship. We might think that boys are always the laidback ones who don’t really care about what we do, but it seems there are a few things that really get under their skin.
The most common complaint boys had when using the hashtag was that their girls answer long text messages with the letter ‘k.’ I’m sorry, but isn’t that what boys always do? Talk about double standards. Whenever I text a boy a long message about something, I always get the ‘k’ response and it drives me insane. I never thought that it would upset them the same way it upsets me.
The guys also tweeted that they get upset when we say they said something that they never did, when we spend all night online instead of talking to them, and when we go through their phone and ask questions about to whom they’re talking. Some more obvious ones include leaving trash in their cars, not paying them back when we borrow money, and inviting them somewhere and expecting them to pay for us.
These all seem like normal complaints, but typically, we’re the ones complaining not the other way around.
Are you surprised boys get upset about these things? What are your biggest pet peeves when it comes to boys?
