thursday thirteen...

13 things that really annoy me...

1. Those that drive below the speed limit in the fast lane, what don't they understand about the words 'fast lane'??

2. The words 'what's up' when used as a greeting, I'm never sure how to answer that, do I just say 'hi', do I respond with 'nothing', is it really them asking what's new, should I tell them about my day?? It always confuses me!

3. Mothers who talk endlessly about their children, but when I try to comment, they say 'oh you wouldn't understand, you're not a Mom'


5. Small talk in an inappropriate siuation - waiting in the Dr's office, while changing at the gym

6. Who am I kidding, small talk with a stranger at any time

7. Those that have no sense of personal space and stand way too close while in line

8. Public nosepicking (while driving in your car counts too, those windows don't make you invisible) - that's what bathrooms, and kleenex's are for

9. White gym socks worn with dress shoes and pants

10. The fact that apparently everything these days requires internet access and a credit card

11. When you're talking to someone on the phone and they use the washroom while talking to you - I feel as though I am invading some sort of private moment that I do not want to be included in

12. When someone asks for your honset opinion, and then is angry at you when you give it to them

13. People that offer to help you do something and then will not follow direction, causing you to go back and re-do whatever it is that they have done, and making twice as much work for you in the end.


  • Oh #3 is a big one for me too. I have friends that have become "Snotty Mommies" and think they are better than us non-moms. I've also had moms try to run me over with their child's stroller.

  • You've hit on most of the ones that bother me, too! One thing that bothers me that's a grammar thing is people who say, "The carpet needs vacuumed." The carpet needs "to be" vacuumed, not just "needs vacuumed." I'm a grammatical kind of person! (One who spends way too much money, but grammatical all the same.)

  • Around here a lot of people say "what's up?".
    It's more of a generic greeting than a question.
    I just respond with something along the lines of "how you doing?"
    or "Howdy" and that works fine.

    Of course, the only answer to "how you doing?" is "all right"

  • Hey,nice blog!!! I found a place where you can make an extra $800 or more a month. I do it part time and make a lot more than that. It is definitely worth a visit! You can do it in your spare time and make good cash. Make Extra Cash
