10 minor irritants to start the new year...

*Women -- already thin women -- who eat something and then tell you how much they'll have to exercise the next day to burn off those extra calories.

And don't invite me to lunch, either, because I don't want to watch you pick at your food.

*Folks who like to crow about their volunteerism/good deeds

Did I miss the broadcast memo?

*Someone saying to me, after I told them I was depressed: "Because of the dog?"

Yeah, and, by the way, I really don't care if I ever see you again.

*Being given a 50+ menu at a restaurant.

But not hesitating to order from it.

*People complaining about allergies/sinus problems -- then finding out they smoke.

You have now reached the no sympathy zone.

Folks who think stay-at-home moms are always available.

Nope. Ask somebody else. If you can find them.

*People who don't have e-mail or who don't check their e-mail regularly.

Unless you're over 80 and related to me, if you don't have e-mail, you aren't likely to hear from me.

*Call-waiting or incessant checking of a hand-held whatever (while you're talking to me)

If it's not important enough to finish a conversation with me before starting one with someone else, you can save us both the trouble and e-mail me instead.

*Loud cellphone conversations in public.

I've yet to overhear anything I really needed to know. Other than so-and-so had finally made bail. But I didn't know him so I guess it really didn't matter after all. But it was fairly interesting.

*46 year old Craig Ferguson married a 26 year old woman

This just irritates me. No special reason. It just does.


  1. Feel better now? LOL!

    Some of those bug me, especially people who always have lung infections etc but still smoke. I'm sorry, but you don't think that stopping one will at least help with the other!

    And cellphone conversations in public. I work with a woman who is always on her phone. Always, as in even in the bathroom. Eeewww.

  2. Hehehe - you just made my day! Although I love watching Craig Ferguson, I'm also irritated he married a "kitten" - it's his 3rd or 4th marriage to boot!!

  3. I feel much better -- but I could probably think of ten more -- but I might get too serious on some of them and I wasn't in the mood!

    Yeah, 3rd marriage, I think...I guess he can stop making jokes about his ex-wives now...or can he?

    Read the "anti-resolutions" -- Funny!

  4. Yep, I can relate to alot of those too!
