Things that Annoy Me

I've been thinking about this a lot lately and felt the need to purge it from my system so here you go:

1. People who don't use their blinkers--what am I, psychic?

2. People who don't drive at least 5 miles over the speed limit--get out of my way! No, the police are not going to stop you for going less than 7 miles over. I have this on good authority.

3. Stupid people--I suppose I need to define this for you. Basically anyone who doesn't use common sense or asks obvious questions. Stop wasting my time.

4. Mean people--Why? Is your self-esteem that low? Suck it up and be nice!

5. People who spread rumors/talk behind others backs--If you have something to say to me/about me, please have the balls to say it to my face. I promise I won't punch you...probably.

6. People who quit when they don't get their way--"I didn't get to play the game I wanted so I'm taking my ball and going home". How old are you?

7. People who complain they're overweight--put down the Big Mac and fries and do something about it.

8. People who fart and then blame it on someone else--we know it was you, just own up to it already!

9. Negativity--I think the world would be a much better place if we were all a little more positive. We'd for sure be happier!

10. Diplomacy--why can't we just say what we mean? Why use 12 words when 2 will do?

Whew! I feel MUCH better. Thanks for listening. I'll return the favor if you comment with your own annoyances.

Lu' said...

I agree Mt Cat I'd like to take the mean people and drag them behind my car as I go over the speed limit ALWAYS over the speed limit. Wait I am a mean person. No, a nice person with mean mean thoughts. Isn't it the deeds that count?

The Mountain Cat said...

Lu' said...

I blinker 98% of the time.

I am annoyed by containers that have a screw top that I need to be a she-man to open, urghhhhh!

Christine said...

I'm very annoyed at people who do not use blinkers.

Another pet peeve of mine is when a cahsier hands you back your change with the coins on top of the bills. EVERY TIME I grab the bills, not really seeing the coins on top, they come falling to the floor. This is the worst when in a drive Through! Aaarrrgghh.

Dana said...

People who think they can talk on the phone, drink a cup of coffee and look at a map, ALL WHILE DRIVING A TWO TON VEHICLE!!

OK, I feel better now ...

Jay said...

People in general annoy me.

I could do a whole blog post on all the things that are getting on my nerves. HEY! Maybe I will! Don't worry, I'll give you credit for inspiring me.

Lu' said...

Christine, absolutely, amen and hallelujah!

Anonymous said...

I agree with you fully, My biggest one is driving.. People give me a reason for road rage!

Things that annoy me:


Doc said...

Man it's dead today in here...


Micky-T said...

I never could understand why you're supposed to say, "excuse me" *after* you fart. You knew you had to fart before it came out so you did anyways and then you ask, to be excused? Bullshit, nobody had any warning. What I do is say, "I'm sorry excuse me" then I let it go! They were warned.

Micky-T said...

Shoot, would that anoy anyone?

Becky said...


Okay, here is my abbreviated list:

People who stand over you at the gym when you're on a machine. Like they're willing you to be done already.

People who hurriedly rush by you when you're walking because they are so! very! important!

I'll stop before I break your blog.

Doc said...

LOL @ MickyT - So True

Oh BTW - Excuse me...

Anndi said...

4. Mean people--Why? Is your self-esteem that low? Suck it up and be nice!

This excludes rude comments made about Heather Mills.. right?

Dana said...

Mt. Cat, I think I'm in love! What night was it ... Tuesday?? I had to choose from Big Brother, Biggest Loser or Dancing with the Stars. Hello?? Can I get a little unreality TV??

Anndi said...

Donald Trump's hair... dude, you're fricking rich, do something about it.

Dana said...

One more ...

People who complain about their blog comments being dead - especially when I've already commented *wink*

Doc said...

Yes. Anndi Heather Mills is an open target on this blog as long as I am still running it.

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Miss Merry Sunshine said...

Whoa...freaky double post...

Doc said...

FYI - A little inside info here... I know for a fact that Apple actually DID one of the things she claims to hate in writing this list...

Oh yeah I get annoyed with Hypocracy :p

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--I hate that sticker too! I would never have that on my van.

Doc said...

Dana... you just go ahead and keep on believing that... ;-)

As American as Apple Pie said...

Doc--Bite me AND kiss my ass! Ok, I was being diplomatic. Pessimists and cynics irritate me. There, happy now?!!

Doc said...

Doc--I hate that sticker too! I would never have that on my van.


As American as Apple Pie said...

That sticker is the definition of mean people.

Anndi--Caution signs fall under the stupid people category. If you are too stupid to not know not to shower with the hair dryer then you should not be using my up air supply.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Dana & TMC--reality (with the exception of DWTS) is driving me crazy! I can't wait for Grey's Anatomy to start again next week. Fuckin writers strike!

Karen said...

I love Reality TV. Come on - I thought you people were voyers!

Anyway, my (very quick) list:

-People who tailgate.

-People who are no friendly and/or do not socialize in social situations.

-When people are late for no reason whatsoever.

-People who complain about anything that they can easily fix, but simple choose not to fix.

-Just how darn loud my stomach has been growling all day. It is mortifying.

-People who say 9-11 was a government conspiracy. Come on, now!

Karen said...

And by the way - how many typos can include in one comment? Wow. That is what I get for trying to comment between meetings from my PDA.

The Mountain Cat said...

I don't want to be part of any organization that would have me as a member.

Knight said...

I can't stand when people walk around whistling. It is so f'ing annoying. Why don't people get that? You are making a horrible high pitch noise. Shut the hell up! *end rant*

Doc said...

*whistles to self*


Sitting in Silence said...

Love your list....I would start on mine but gawd knows there is not enought web space available out here in cyber world.....LOL...

Cleavage on a man

Mismatched socks in the drawer

Old ladies that have to count every freaking coin in their purse to make exact change at the grocery story.

Sloppy tongue kisses from grandma

The movie "The Sound of Music"

Lu' said...

The sun beating on my face through the window of the car and the sun flickering through the trees when driving.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Jeff b--I LOVE the Sound of Music. I even played Gretel (the youngest child) in our town's production when I was 8. And yes, I can yodel.

As American as Apple Pie said...

C'mon Silence...rant away, it's what we're here for.

Doc said...

Something new to add to my list... Even the thought of Apple "yodeling"


Lu' said...

Good for you aaaaPie. When the movie came out, my Mom tooks us to the movies to see it; it was a big deal. Our antique car club is taking a trip in the fall and one of the stops will be the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe Vt. It is a pretty exspensive trip so I'm not sure if I'm going and work might interfere.

Leighann said...

Pessimists and cynics irritate me. There, happy now?!!

Bina said...

Wow. I'm stunned, because I swear I don't remember writing this, but it's me! It's my thoughts. Somehow you were able to get into my mind and knew exactly what I have been thinking all these years.

Especially #8. You know, "dustcropping".

Ginormous Boobs said...

People who tell me to smile. Seriously, WTF? Why do you get to tell me how to feel?

And cooks who overcook my meat. I asked for RARE. It should be BLEEDING still.

That is all.
