Just Curious-Pet Peeves, Part 2

Great answers on my previous Just Curious post, ladies. I laughed reading them again! Yes, many of those things Headless Dad does as well but around here there are 2 things that he does daily that make me roll my eyes.
1) Paper Towel Bombs-He is addicted to paper towels. He uses them to dry his hands, dry the dishes, as a paper plate for lunches, everything. BUT! They (almost) NEVER make it into the trash. I am constantly grabbing them and putting them in the bin which is usually directly under the spot on the counter where he's left it. Gah! And if he's cooking that day/night? They are all over.
2) He disappears each night. Yes, he goes off to bed, but never tells me when he's going. Sometimes I'll go into the kitchen to get a glass of water and by the time I get back to the family room, (which is practically the same room,) he's gone. Poof!

Now, here's this weeks question. We're moving on to the children in our lives. Not our own! What do other children do that drive you nuts? Is it in the grocery store? In your child's class? A niece or nephew? Grandchild? What are the habits that you say, "Gosh I'm glad he/she isn't mine!" Don't leave a name or identifying quality, just the silly habit. Like last week, I want this one to be light and fun.

Thanks for playing along!

Kids who splash me at the pool make me just want to toss them in the deep end...

I don't spend a whole lot of time with kids but I am tired of all the disrespectful teenagers I see out there.

When the older kid will get the younger one to come ask the mom or whoever is on charge for something.

HOORAY!!! We are now empty nesterds, so other people's kids don't annoy me NEARLY as often as they used to.

Still not crazy about a screaming child out in public - - - but hey, it isn't MINE so I can just walk away, chuckling under my breath the whole way!!!
