S.E. Cupp’s Long List Of Pet Peeves Matches Our Own

If there’s anything I’ve learned from moving to New York, it’s that everything begins to annoy you after you’ve been living there for a while. The city is so crowded, you can’t help but develop a strong dislike toward stuff that wouldn’t irk you in any other environment: slow walkers, overpriced strollers clogging trains (don’t judge me, you hate them, too), people who make a production of sneezing, anyone who eats on the subway, parents who allow their children to scream and cause disruptions on public transit…my list of awful things is endless, and that’s why I appreciate that “The Cycle” co-host and proud New Yorker S.E. Cupp is open about her countless NYC pet peeves, which she revealed in a new interview with POLITICO.
Speaking with Patrick Gavin, the New York Daily News columnist said of what grinds her gears:
“I hate mouth noises of all kinds — chewing, swallowing, gum smacking, heavy breathing. Spelling and grammatical errors make my stomach churn. Especially if I’ve made any. Golf umbrellas on Manhattan sidewalks are infuriating, as are slow or aimless walkers. Loud talkers annoy me in confined spaces like trains and planes. Tardiness is totally unacceptable. I find most meetings and conference calls to be too long, inefficient and a source of great frustration. When people call…just to ‘say hi.’ Bad table manners. In all honesty, I’m a nightmare.”
