I grew up on a farm and had dogs and cats and horses and stuff as a kid. I don't have any pets right now, but I probably would if I lived out of town. That's where I stand right now. I am not anti-pet.
I have no issues with people who have pets, but when they become 'pet people', they drive me up the wall. I'm talking every other Facebook post about having pets, putting their pets in costume, spending thousands and thousands of dollars on things like hip replacements and dental work, and (I throw up in my mouth every time I hear it), calling their pet a 'fur baby'.
Maybe it's just me, but I think there is a difference between people who have a reasonable relationship with their pet and insane, crazy pet people. Most of my co-workers are crazy, insane pet people and I am surrounded by people who either don't stop talking about their kids or their pets. Possibly one of the most annoying things ever.
Am I alone?
