What annoys me?

I was reading my blog reader when I cam across a post from Mama Kat about 10 things that make her angry. I thought i might share a few of my own... although I have a hard time really getting angry... so perhaps 'annoyed', 'discontent'... possibly angry if I was having a really bad week (in no particular order):

#1 People who wear their shoes in the house! I am nearly always barefoot, so I can feel every granule that you track into the house on your freakin' shoes.

#2 Mothers who smoke while pregnant or parents who smoke with their children in close proximity. (Ok, this one does make me angry.)

#3 Any loud noise in my house between the hours of 8pm-8am. Seriously... we get the kids in bed and then I just want to breathe and have a teensy bit of peace and quiet. I do not think people without children (or least my children) understand this. But I listen to slamming, screaming, whining, marching bands, blaring pop music, tap shoes... etc... ALL DAY LONG! Sometimes I just want... quiet. Simply quiet.

#4 Loud eaters. Slurping of soup... milk from the cereal, etc... Nothing makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck more. So, if you are eating breakfast with me, please don't take offense if I get up and take my cereal bowl to another room.

#5 Washing my chapstick in the laundry... as near as I can tell I can never get those little grease marks out of my clothes!

#6 People all up in my personal space. This includes people rubbing my arm to tell me they love my tattoos, close talkers, pregnant belly touchers, people who sit right next to me in the waiting room when there are 10 open chairs much further away... etc, etc...

#7 Out of state drivers- that is pretty much anyone out of NH or Maine... you have to realize that we are not in a rush up here! Get off my tail- there are only 2 lanes on our highways and if I am only going 70 mph to pass someone... you just gotta wait it out buddy. And keep your dirty looks, fingers and profanity to yourself because I am just going to kill you with kindness.

#8 People who do not answer my texts immediately. This is a combo of my extreme impatience the fact that I know you are just ignoring me!

That's it... I can not even come up with 10. I am having trouble concentrating since there are 3 kids sitting next to me slurping their cereal milk.

  1. I am with you on almost all of these, the chapstick in the laundry isnt one I really deal with though...I hardly use chapstick :) I don't think I'll ever understand how people can wear shoes in the house, my husband does it and it drives me insane! put socks on if your feet are cold!!
