Evidence: Blog “Pet peeves”

“A pet peeve is a particular thing that bugs, or bothers you every time it happens.
A peeve is an annoyance, and a pet peeve is an annoyance that's nurtured like
a pet - it's something someone can never resist complaining about”. (Vocabulary,
s.f.).
This evidence is divided into two parts. For the first part, you have to record a
video of yourself describing at least three pet peeves you have, what they make
you feel, and what you usually do while experiencing them. Then, you have to
describe that last time you experienced each of them. Use the list of adjectives
for feelings, emotions, situations, and people in the study material for reference.
For the second part, you have to upload the video to the blog to share it with your
classmates. You also need to comment at least two videos made by two of them.
If somebody comments on your video, make sure to respond.

Example: One of my pet peeves is drivers who don't use a turn signal. It really
makes me angry. I usually ride my bike around the city and I have to deal with
reckless people daily. Yesterday, for example, on my way home, this very
impatient taxi driver nearly ran over me. He made a quick turn without using a
turn signal and totally ignored the bike path. When I yelled at him, he didn’t do
anything. He didn’t even look ashamed. I almost kicked his car, but I decided
against it. It is better to avoid this kind of problems. I have a family that cares for
me.
Blog pet peeves:

One of my pet peeves are the drivers who play with


the horn of the car for anything, and believes that is
funny, making that the public space by where pass
cars becomes in a chaos, and without to mention to
the houses nearby that also have endure this.
