TT

Thanks to goofy girl for the special banner!

Thirteen things that drive me crazy!

1. I hate it when slow drivers are in the left lane....seriously, just GET OVER and let me pass you! Those drivers really should not drive (no offense to you slow drivers, but I have places to go and yes I need to get there 2 min. before you!)

2. Restaurants that don't have free refills...do you really think I'm not going to drink more than one? Then if you don't have refills, I have to switch to water and I think we all know how I feel about that!

3. Men who break off relationships and already have another girlfriend...well I think we all know how I feel about that...let's just leave it at all....

4. Those anonymous people who put spam comments on my blog...I really don't want to have the word verification but comon...I don't need my p*n*s enlarged or a boob job so please don't post it on my site!
5. Having such a long hiatus for tv shows right now...do I really need to wait 5 weeks for a new Grey's? That is like TORTURE. It's not even new tonight, but Ugly Betty is :-)
6. People in the 10 items or less line with over 20 items....now some people may honestly not know how to count, but if I'm standing there with 1 item, that means I want out and quickly!!!!
7. The cost of school books...obviously I am not rich if I am trying to obtain another degree and the fact that each book is over $50 (and usually over $65) really irks me when there is ALWAYS more than 1 book per class....I am sure that goofy girl can relate!
8. People leaving mean comments on blogs...nobody said you had to read what I write or anyone else....if you don't like what I write, don't visit--it's really fairly simple.
9. People who repeat things over and over and over again....I got it the first time but thank you!
10. Parents yelling at their children in public...I know that sometimes the parents are embarrassed and don't know what to do, but some parents really yell and get into it in the middle of the grocery store aisle and the child just starts screaming...now I know why I grocery shop later.
11. People who will read through this entire post and then NOT leave a message....oh comon, let me at least feel the love here....
12. People who don't use their blinkers...are they optional on cars now? Does it cost extra to have them installed? I can not read your mind and know that you want to cut in front of me so please don't assume that I know I need to make room for your car when you are going to cut in front of me to slam on your breaks 4 seconds after you do!
13. And finally...it drives me crazy that I can't always think of 13 things for this list! Oh well, better luck next time.
What drives you crazy?

I had one of these lists a few months ago. It's always nice to vent, huh?

Happy TT.

Jane said...

Oh yes I agree with a lot of these! Have a good night!

JohnH985 said...

A very good list. I can agree with just about all of them, but I really hate those people in the 10 or under line with more. I make it a point to count my items and if I have just one item over I will not go in that line, so why can't others do the same?

My 13 is up.

France would drive you beserk .... not using blinkers / indicators seems to be taken as part of national pride!

Lisa said...

I agree with lots of those. I always feel bad for those children whose parents are just letting loose on them in public. If I were that upset with my son, I'd take him out of the store.

And no blinkers - that drives me nuts. It's not rocket science, people, it's a turn signal. USE it.

Yea, I hate the verification fields too but it's the only cure for the spam--approving each comment is such a pain and so time consuming.

Laura said...

hmmmm shopping later only brings out the really FUN parents that make folks like you and me cringe.
my tt is up.

Raggedy said...

Venting is a good thing.
Good list.
Have a wonderful Thursday
My TT is up

Nathalie said...

People can just be really annoying at times :)
Hope you have a happy Thursday!

Carmen said...

Ugly Betty is new tonight? Oh boy! I've missed seeing new shows. :)

Louise said...

Pretty sure I agree with all of these - especially no. 12 and 13 - I always lose the plot by about no. 8.

Happy 13

I can't believe you said how much you hate places that don't give free refills. I HATE, HATE, HATE this!!!!!!!!!! I'm a very thirsty person, and I usually drink several glasses of whatever I'm having, and I always end up paying the extra 25 cents per refill. Don't even get me started on ice!

Maribeth said...

This is a great list! I agree with the entire list!
Glad you are back to blogging. I missed you!

Janet said...

I'm with you on #1...and #3 happened to me, too

Christine said...

The one thing I agree with your list the most is #10. When I worked in restaurants, I'd hate hearing parents yell at their kids. People who don't use their blinkers or who cut me off would be my next choice.
Great list.
Happy TT!

Sparky Duck said...

I try to let the people with 1 or 2 items go in front of me.

men are dogs, what do you want fron us? Cant live with them, can shoot them legally,

5 weeks until Greys?? ugh!!

Chickadee said...

I HATE the slow drivers in the fast lane too. Get over already!

I had to move my blog due to the spam...and I had word verification! Ohhh it was so frustrating.

My 13 is up.

tiggerprr said...

Gosh, I can't remember the last time I dined at a place that didn't have free refills. I do know this, it was/will be the last time I dined there. :)

Lots of your list drives me nuts too.

local girl said...

I know what you mean about GA. I'm totally having withdrawals. What do you think about Alex & Addison getting together?

Goofy Girl said...

Cost of books = ridiculous! Why I don't buy them anymore unless they are essential!

Come back grays!

Great list!! I can't agree with you more!!!

Katie said...

Alll of those things pretty much drive me crazy too! sheesh no wonder we are related :) love you, see you soon!

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

I came back by to visit. I'm thinking about you!

Amy said...

Slow drivers at all are obnoxious-- no matter what lane they are in!!

And I know what you mean about the anon comments. I had to put the word thingy on too that makes people type in random letters just like ticketmaster. oof.
