“I don't have pet peeves, I have whole kennels of irritation” *

Everybody else (if by everybody else, I mean two other bloggers - oops) is doing it, so why not? (And yes, Mom, frankly, if everyone else were jumping off a bridge, I WOULD seriously consider it. So there. )

25 things that shit me to tears

1. Whining
2. Walmart
3. Old people at the grocery store who stand in the middle of the aisle, reviewing their coupons or whatever the hell they are doing IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GODDAMN AISLE
4. Baggers who put my bananas in with my canned goods
5. Applicator tampons
6. Birth control
7. Sock seams
8. Ultra low-rise jeans
9. Dealing with my contact lenses
10. White chocolate
11. Not having any time to myself
12. The dog
13. Babysitters who cancel at the last minute
14. Bras
15. My car’s lack of power locks
16. Hummers
17. Mitt Romney
18. Artificial sweeteners
19. Trendy books
20. Those advertising circulars that get tossed onto my lawn at least once a day
21. Jehovah’s Witnesses and/or anyone else who rings my doorbell to solicit, proselytize, or try to sell me something
22. Diaper tabs that rip off
23. Antibacterial Kleenex
24. People who don’t squeeze out the kitchen sink sponge
25. Microsoft Office 2007

How I despise bras, especially in the last stages of pregnancy when the band won't lay flat!

How funny that you and I both mentioned white chocolate today. But I complimented it, or at least some truffles made out of it.

I LOVE this quote!!!

One of my pet peeves is stupid quotations that people put after their signature blocks on emails. But if I were ever to put one on, it would definitely be this quote!!! Thank you, Whoopi!

You can just pass that white chocolate my way, thank you, and everything will be fine. Apart from that, whole-hearted agreement.

Kathy said...

Lots of agreement here too -- especially about the bras -- but I do like white chocolate.

I think that our kennels of irritation must be near each other, as I share a lot of those. But really? What I thought when I saw #6? (and I say this with a smile on my face, so no need to jump on me if it comes out wrong) - Obviously! -

Nice list.

#3 Once I was in the grocery store where an old man was so intent on his cell phone conversation that wherever I went to get around him and find what I was looking for, he would wander over and stand directly between me and whatever I was looking for.

and #10 white chocolate. It's not really chocolate, so what's the point?
