Things That Annoy Me

Although this list could be somewhat lengthy, I've decided to limit it to the first 10 things that pop into my head:

1. People that refuse to let you merge in traffic
3. Actors getting involved in politics and talking about what big environmentalists they are
4. False humility
5. The forty-something year old college student who sat in the front row, tried to answer every question, and asked even more questions (of course, at the very end of class, prolonging the whole ordeal)
6. Any type of clicking or tapping
7. Renting a DVD from Blockbuster and it being scratched toward the end and most exciting part
8. People writing "your" when they mean "you're" and vice-versa
9. The fact that all the very cute clothes that are on sale in my favorite stores are all XXS
10. Someone (I won't mention any names) not replacing the toilet paper roll

What about you? I know something's got to get to you sweet, lovely ladies. Come on. What did I miss?

Sorry to complain ... just a little annoyed tonight. I'll be my normal chipper self tomorrow.

This is why we are BFF's...I have wanted to do this post FOREVER :)

I am super annoyed when I am going 5 miles over the speed limit (that's my allowed amt, ok) and people tail gate me!!! FORCING me to have to slow WAY down in order to punish them and annoy them more than they annoy me.

There. Now you know what I'm REALLY like ;)

HA! We just did that thing where we comment on each other's posts at the same time. We are weirdos ;)

I'm guilty of number two. But I only let my children wear them to church (because little ladies think they are great)and to large stores around the holidays because I can hear them. It's a safety thing.

10 Things that set me off . . .

1. Slow drivers in the fast lane.
2. Someone chewing gum or food like a cow chews grass.
3. Door to Door salepeople - especially at nap time.
4. Clerks with bad people skills
5. Smashed loaf of bread - you know the bread loaf was beautiful until you loaded it into your car and your kids helped you unload it.
6. When someone forgets to flush.
7. Being ingnored
8. Newspapers get wet from rain.
9. A know it all
10. Comments from people about the size of our family.

We all really could get on a roll here - glad you limited it to 10.

Empty food containers being put back in the empty milk jug...which falsely leads me to believe we still have milk...which doesn't go over real well with my girls first thing in the morning!

I really like your blog...I've seen you commenting on a lot of the same blogs I read...just wanted to say hi since it seems we're traveling the same circles!

I also hate it when traffic doesn't merge...but what I hate the most is being in a women's bathroom minding my business when a woman walks in and sits in the stall next to mine starts going Mr. Stinky and doesn't give a customary flush!!! Then the stink drift to me...YUCK!

Oh by the way...I awarded you with a BLOG award...cause you're special like that and I think your girls are two of the cutest girls ever to walk the planet!

Have a good morning!

Oh yeah, "People that refuse to let you merge in traffic" is a big one for me. I want to run them over.

One of my biggies is people who eat and talk at the same time. And spit little pieces of half-masticated food on you. Ick. Ick to the Ick Ick.

OK, this doesn't actually make me angry...just irks me a little.

--people replacing the toilet paper roll, and putting it on the WRONG way!


Whew, I feel so much better!

People smacking gum of food.


People flirting with my husband.

My kids interrupting me when I am talking to an adult.

Loud Boisterous Look at me behavior in public.

I could spend YEARS of my life being annoyed!!!! Have a great week.

We have very similar lists!

clicking and tapping!
The whole blockbuster dvd thing!
Similar to your/you're... I can't stand when someone uses too, to and two incorrectly... I mean, I stink at grammar and even I know the difference.
yep, the Clothes are always SMALL
or size 2. I know one person who is size 2 .. and she's 11.

AND the biggie... the traffic.
Well, thank goodness you don't live in FLORIDA... you would NEVER go out driving.
