More Pet Peeves

I know you just love to hear me complain.  Here are some more things that get under my skin.  Feel free to chime in with yours today.
  • Getting 50 text messages a day that simply say "OK."  I hate getting up from my lunch, going in to find my phone because I can't remember where I left it to find a text that says "OK." 
  • Someone who literally overuses the word literally.  "It's literally one thousand degrees in here!"  Is it?  Is that even possible?  I literally don't think you know what "literally" means.
  • When someone folds a piece of paper in half then uses their fingernail to make the crease.  Eek...it's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me!
  • Again, I must mention people who don't use their turn signals.  One of these days I just might plow right into the back of them.
  • Dirty socks on the bathroom, living room, dining room, or kitchen floor.
  • Missing coupon expiration dates.  I lost a $10 Best Buy rewards coupon and a Shutterfly coupon code because I let the expiration dates pass.  Boo!
  • Forgetting my coupons when shopping.  I recently spent $30 at Bath & Body Works, remembering that I had a dandy coupon at home.  I don't know why I don't take them with me at all times.
  • An empty iced tea pitcher in the refrigerator when I'm thirsty.
  • Negative people who always see the grass as greener on the other side.  Just keep your own grass green and quit looking at your neighbor's!

One of the things that makes me crazy is when I'm the first person at a red light and the nano-second it turns green, the car behind me is honking their horn. As though that will get them to their destination 1/2 hour earlier.

My gut reaction is to crawl through the intersection just to tick them off more. I did that one day, and my child sitting in the seat next to me was seriously embarrassed. Of course, that could possibly make the me target of some road-rage that I don't really want to be a part of, so I don't usually respond that way.

I totally identify!! You are too funny! My husband never uses his turn signal...drives me crazy! I can't stand when people interrupt you when your telling a story and then they continue to tell you their story and then ask you in an uninterested tone to continue on with your story when they are finished talking. I really cannot stand it when I am asked my telephone number and/or account number AFTER I already entered in using the keypad on my phone. I thought I was supposed enter that info to "better assist me". I have a whole list.....that's just two...

- Images, I would be the one to crawl through the intersection on purpose. But you are right, that is so dangerous now. I was shocked in NYC how quickly taxis blow their horn. We don't do that out here in the sticks.
- Mel, I would crash into your husband for spite. And I totally agree with your other two.
- Theresa, you are always the one to like the deep comments! That was about as deep as I get...haha!

Coupons! I used to seriously get rage o' matic with myself when I would forget them at home. Now I carry them with me ALL THE TIME. It makes my wallet a ridiculous size, but hey! I'm saving money.
