These Things Annoy Me

Oh yeah, it’s time to rant about what’s annoying me. Here’s my top three of the week:

1. Up My Butt

I consider myself a pretty good driver. Sometimes, I may have a lot on my mind and I may not be concentrating 100% on the ride. The guy behind me may get annoyed and want me to change lanes. No problem. I get it – I’m out.

But, dude, give me a minute. I got you. I’ve got my blinker on. I’m trying to get over. I’m trying to get you on your way. You don’t have to drive on my bumper. Now, you’re just out to annoy me. Well played.

2. Coupons

Yes, I hate coupons. They completely annoy me. I normally don’t bother with them at all…gasp! The whole coupon process is ridiculous. My husband on the other hand loves coupons. He loves to cut them out and he really uses them!

Unfortunately, he rarely does the shopping. Although, if he did, we would totally be on Extreme Couponing. You know, where they buy $1,000 worth of stuff for $1. That would be us.

But, it’s up to me. Even with him cutting them out for me, I still can’t make it work. I usually just forget to even bring them. When I do remember, I hate trying to figure out if the brand with the coupon is cheaper than the brand without the coupon. Oh, and how about when you have to buy multiple things to get the deal. Then after I go to all the trouble, I realize the coupon is expired! AAHHHH!!!!

I just don’t have it in me. Coupons are annoying, without a doubt!

3. Camp Drop-off / Pick-up

My daughter goes to summer camp. The parking lot is a mad house. I’m used to this but lately, it’s out of hand. There are lines of cars trying to find a space. I’m actually thinking of leaving like 15 minutes early just to be able to get a spot. What’s going on? I’m not sure. But it is making me CRAZY annoyed!

Do you find these things annoying?

Three Things Annoying Me…

If you missed last week’s post, I shared some things I was loving (*smiles*). Don’t worry though, I’m back to being annoyed (*eye rolls*). Here’s my top three this week!

1. Shoulder Please

The other day I was driving down a four lane highway. The average speed was probably about 50 miles per hour. The person in front of me decided to turn right. No problem. He put his blinker on, which was very nice (a step in the right direction, I’m sure you’re thinking). Then he slowed down, and slowed down, and slowed down, until he was almost at a stop.

Of course, I was behind him and couldn’t change lanes because there were other cars coming. Then he finally turned right. Meanwhile, there was a HUGE shoulder area he could have pulled over to while approaching the turn and then turned right.

I’m not saying he has to get completely in the shoulder but ‘come on, dude’ give me a little room to get by you!

2. Bathroom Lights

Last time I let you in on my annoying things, I mentioned bathrooms quite a bit. Well, I’m back on it! We stayed in a hotel that had a very nice bathroom area. It had the sink area which opened up into the rest of the room. Then there was a separate area with a door that closed off the toilet and the shower.

Now, you might think I’d be annoyed that they’d put the toilet in the little room with the shower but I’m not. Nope, that didn’t really bother me. What did bother me was the light for the toilet/shower room was on the outside of the room. It was located in the sink area of the bathroom.

That meant I go in, close the door, and realize I had to open the door to put the light on. That also meant that at night, when I had to use the facilities, I had to turn on the light (exposing all sleepers to the light) and then close the door. That’s annoying.

3. Yard Sale Signs

First of all, I don’t like yard sales. I just can’t get into them. And, don’t even talk to me about having a yard sale. I did it once and hated it!

Shopper: How much is this?
Me: A nickel.
Shopper: Can you go any lower?
Me: Huh?

Lower? Really? Like what 2.5 cents??

Sorry, that’s not what annoys me. I know people love yard sales and I do get it. Go for it! Have fun…get your stuff for less than 5 cents! Here’s what I’m annoyed about.

When people have yard sales, they put up the signs on telephone poles announcing it and showing directions. No problem. But after the yard sale – TAKE THE SIGN DOWN!

I am so annoyed looking at old signs hanging all over the place. We know it’s over, the date is on there. The address is on there too…I so wish I had the guts to take those signs down and bring them back to the address listed. But, I don’t. So, I’ll just be annoyed.

Does any of this annoy you?
If not, then what’s annoying you?
Tell, tell, tell!

Annoying…Top 3 Are Here!

For the past few weeks, I haven’t posted my top three annoying things. Believe me, it hasn’t been because I wasn’t annoyed – I was! But, I’m not going to make you read like nine of them – only three!

1. Public Bathroom #1

Okay, lots of things to be annoyed about here. I mean I could go on and on but recently, there was one thing that really annoyed me. My three year-old daughter and I were in a public restroom. After she did her business, we realized there was no toilet paper!

There was a woman in the stall next to us and if you’ve ever taken a three year-old to the bathroom, you know they give a play-by-play of what’s happening. It’s beyond obvious the woman knew we needed some toilet paper. But, she did not do anything to help us out! Unbelievably annoying! I mean come on, I’ve got a little kid in here!

2. Losing Work

If you read one of my recent posts, you’ll know I lost a whole post and had to rewrite the entire thing. Annoying! I’ve done this before with Word documents and emails. Rewriting it just never seems as good as the first.

It’s usually some stupid thing that happens to cause you to lose it. I literally spent a week waiting to rewrite the post because I was so mad it happened in the first place. I know, not very grown up behavior but I was annoyed.

3. Public Bathroom #2

Hehe…it’s not what you think! I just had to add a second thing that annoys me about public bathrooms, particularly those Family Bathrooms. Now, these are supposed to be designed for a family. A family normally includes kids. Kids are generally on the short side. One problem little kids have is reaching the sinks in bathrooms.

Now, you think if it’s a “family” bathroom, someone would have considered this and lowered the sink. But, I get it, maybe that’s impossible for whatever building, safety, etc. reason.

You know what, though? There is a very easy solution…a step stool. OMG, can you believe I thought of that (I am brilliant!). Please just add a step stool so my three year-old can easily wash her hands in the bathroom!

Okay, that’s it for the week! Let me know what you think…
