Makin' Friends Monday

Today I am following Kasey's idea for Makin' Friends Monday post and our
task: 10 things that just really get you fuzzed up (that means makes you mad). So here are the ones that I have come up with:
1. I detest any make-up that you have to use your fingernails to get the substance out of the bottle. Because then you have it under your nails and have to try to clean it out from there too.
2. Why do commercials have to be 200 decibals louder than the actual show? Do they think we all are deaf?
3. Sports announcers, especially the news sports announcers, their voices grind on me.
4. Waiting. I'm not very patient. If an appointment is at 10:00 I expect everyone to be there ready at 10:00 (I know, I am not very patient). And along with that, people who don't show up at all when they said they would be there really irk me. Is it too much to call with your excuse?
5. Food that is supposed to be hot, but is served warm. I am not afraid to send it back.
6. When someone borrows something and does not return it and you have to hound them for it, or returns it in less than the condition it was in when they took it.
7. When the weather does not cooperate, like lately. It is supposed to be Spring. There is no snow in Spring, didn't Mother Nature get the memo?
8. Show stealers. You know the kind, that have to monolopolize the conversation every time. Their experience was better than anyone else's and they are not polite and let others have their say.
9. My hair drives me crazy! I am never satisfied with how it looks.
10. Toilet seats should be put down after use and toilet paper should roll from back to front.
(Just a disclaimer that I am very forgiving so if you find yourself doing any of these things I will probably give you a second chance--or three:))
If you want to check other posts for their pet peeves go to Kasey at All That Is Good.
Have a great Monday!!

I enjoy getting to know you a little better through your posts. You seen like a gentle and forgiving person. I agree with the toliet seat. I raised three sons and taught them all to sit down.:) Their wives love me for it! They even told their friends and the missionaries when they came over the rule in our home is to sit down!LOL
It is my daughters family of boys which do not seem to understand the concept!
I feel the same about my (thinning) hair... argg...!
I hope you enjoy a wonderful week!

CBS on Direct TV is the worst at having loud commercials- even my kids complain, so you know that is bad!

Congrats on the new grandson- he is precious!!!

Have a great week!

Great list! My Mom pounded it into my head which way the toilet paper goes, now even if I'm at someone else's house I will turn the roll the right way!:-)

Have a great Monday!

I completely agree with all of that except for your hair. I think it looks lovely!

Have a great week!

Totally agree with the commercials thing. Now I prefer to DVR everything so I don't even have to watch them.
I mentioned the same one about people who don't show up when they say they would be there. That is so irritating.

Oh Hello! I HATE the commercial thing - you can barely hear the darned TV show but the commercials make the walls tremble!

Thank goodness for tivo -- we can forward through all of those loud commercials!

Yes, why do commercials always have to be super loud? That is very annoying. I also agree that if you borrow something, you should promptly return it (in the condition it was in when you borrowed it!). Great list!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Marie said...

A lot of your annoyances are mine too!! Have a wonderful week!
