At the risk of appearing negative....10 Things That Get on my Nerves

I don't have much time tonight, but I shuddered at the thought of not doing a post at all. I mean what would you be doing right now if I would not have posted this? (Reading another blog probably...or working, depending on who you are.) But I have hours of work to go before I can rest, so my post will be short and sweet ( well, probably not sweet), but at least it is here. That is how much I care about you. So tonight I am doing a list of ten things that get on my nerves. Most of these things probably happened today at some point, because that is the kind of day that i have had. I hope that yours was much better than mine.

The Top Ten Things That Get On My Nerves
  1. Nosy nosy people who have to tell everybody's business to everybody else. (Especially if that person sits right outside of your office and you have to hear the story eight gazillion times.)
  2. People touching (hugging, patting, rubbing) me. Unless that person is a member of my immediate family.
  3. When my husband cannot find items that are sitting three inches in front of his nose.
  4. People breathing in my face. (This goes for all people, even those under three feet tall who came out of my womb.)
  5. Close minded people who just automatically assume that you share their beliefs and spew down nonsense all over your space on a regular basis.
  6. People touching my stuff. (If it is mine and is on my desk, on the printer, on the floor, in my chair, on the table or on the file cabinet I see no reason whatsoever that someone else would think that I need them to move it.)
  7. People who pass you and then drive really really really slowly in the no passing zone.
  8. When couples fight in my presence. That throws me off. I really have no idea how to react in that situation. I just feel embarrassed and awkward. It is almost like a flashback to childhood when my parents would fight, so not cool.
  9. Passive-aggressive behavior. (GRRRRRRRRR!!!)
  10. When you are in public with two or more (very attractive, hearing abled) children and someone comes up and only compliments one. Yeah, that is the worst. It should be a rule. If you aren't going to compliment all of the children in the immediate vicinity, don't bother coming over at all.

Oh dear! I am guilty of numbers 2 and 6. Hopefully I do not breathe too close to your face...

Ok, so amen to all but 1 and #8. I love to hear some gossip. I mean, it's like reality tv, but not on tv. And it's real.

Pretty much the same excuse for #8 too.

Ok, you can shake your head with disgust now. I understand.

Yeah, it isn't that I don't like good gossip. I do. It is just that her gossip is not interesting and she repeats it over and over. lol Now I feel like a much better person.

6)I have a boss who snatches pens off my desk. Even after I tape my name on them...

7) My big pet peeve is people who pass you then slow down. Or go slow up hill and then fast down hill.

#10... thats abuse. Go ahead and tell them that to their faces. PLEASE!

Number 10 is interesting. I haven't come across this personally but it does sound like a terrible thing to do and I can understand why you'd be peeved.

Jackie said...

This list is PERFECT! I love them all and couldn't agree more. I don't even think I can pick a favorite because I so agree with them all. Maybe #3 though - Gah!

Sounds like you had a day. Let me tell you 'bout mine. I spent 700 dollars at the dentist. That is numbers 1 thru 10 on my list.

Dana said...

I could have written that list myself!

#5 and #9 are at the top of my list of piss-offs too!

Bilbo said...

You've inspired me to develop my own list! I just hope I can limit it to only ten...
