I have a little, tiny pet peeve. I don't have to deal with it all the time, but when I do, it kind of irks me.
Tablecloths that shrink!
You see, we have a really long dining room. That's not the problem. An 120 inch tablecloth fits our table beautifully....until I wash said tablecloth; then, it has only an inch hanging off on each end.
Now, If I owned a smaller table, I could just buy a larger cloth to account for the shrinkage, but no! One hundred twenty inches is the longest you can get tablecloths around here. So, I enjoy a wonderfully fitting tablecloth for one or two meals, and then I frown at the little inch hanging off the end for the rest of the time.
Like I said, it's a tiny pet peeve, but one that is bothering me today.
