Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

What's she so crabby about?

(Look out 3rd grade, here I come)

Dear People-who-have-pissed-me-off-today,

I don't care how old you are. You can be 89 or 6 for all I care, it still ticks me off when you do this.

Three little girls alone (where was your guardian?) who thought you were so sneaky, nonchalantly sliding by...

Large-ish lady who nearly knocked me down with your butt while you did it, I especially hated that.

Mother with small child? I have one, too. He's right here and he can see you doing it.

Monsoon: I know I told you the rules, and I'm sorry that not everyone is so considerate. Hopefully this will teach you the reason for respecting the order.

Husband: I've got a twitch in my eye, too, and yes I want to deck that muscle-head as much as you do, but so help me if you get to him first I will strangle the both of you.

WAIT YOUR TURN!!!!!!! If one more person cuts in front of me in line - any line! - I will go all "pony-tail-time" on your Most Supreme High Rudeness! Come on - when my 3 year old keeps asking why it's not his turn to board the tea-cups yet after he saw you butt your way in front of us, how am I supposed to explain the first-come/first-serve unwritten agreement between normal human beings? If HE can understand how it works, why can't you?

So, what's buggin you?

I have been on vacation for a while but I am guessing by the mention of the Tea Cups that you all are having a bit of Disney fun! :0) Or not!

The guy that lives next door. Is never home and his yard looks like crap all full of weeds and stuff. I did call him today and I hope he comes and does something about it.

Boy am I glad I am on your good side! I am on your good side, right?

Yaya said...

Yup, people can be so annoying. What's bothering me? Oh, the in laws of course, that never lets up. And the adoption agency taking their sweet a$$ time pushing our home study through.

Jennifer said...

Yep, just complete selfishness. Everyone thinks that what they want i so much more important than what everyone else wants and puts their wants first, too the point of being rude and obnoxious. Drives me nuts.

Kristin said...

Seriously. Discourteous people drive me insane! Right now I'm gunning for people who weave in and out of traffic. Do you really need the few seconds you are saving?

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Don't you hate that!?!?!! And it makes matters so much worse when you are with your child who has more manners than the "grown-ups." Everyone could stand to go back to preschool and relearn the basics, huh?

Julia said...

My word for loosing my composure is

going "Circus freak crazy"

Feel free to have a coniption fit on me. :)

H F W said...

People who sneeze and then want to shake my hand. AGHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't really like line-cutting either.

Michelle said...

Ahhh.... I feel better now after reading your vent :) I should have added that to my ten things I'm sick of list from last week!

Meaghan said...

Amen, Mama!

Thanks for dropping by my blog. I'll be back here often!

Sassy Britches said...

I guess you just go right on ahead and explain it at regular volume. They know what they did so there's no reason why you should have to keep the explaination to yourself or tone it down any! :) Woo-hoo! Go pony-tail-time!

Kathy B! said...

You go, girl!

I always just sit there and fume silently in my head, but maybe if we all said something they's cut (pun intended!) it out :)

BlueEyedWonder said...

People who cut me off...mid-sentence. Because they think what they have to say is more important..

People who pretend they are listening when you can tell by looking at them they aren''s that glazed over look.

And girl, you should have explained loudly to your child why he didn't end up next when he should have. People who cut in line without any thought to who is standing there should be shot!
