My Top 10 Irritations: I Need Advice On A Few

6 years ago




In No Certain Order

1-Empty Milk Carton put back in the refrigerator. I want some cereal, get the bowl out, put the cereal in it, even get the spoon out then when I reach for the milk the carton it is empty. My response: I search the house for the culprit and for the hundredth time tell him how much I wanted some cereal only to find out there was no milk. Then send him to the store to get milk.

2- The car behind me beeping when the light turns green before I have had a chance to put my foot on the gas pedal. My response beep back! I know this isn’t the right thing to do but I am still working on giving grace to others. Please bear with me.

 3- Waiting in the doctor’s office for 45 minutes only to go back to the room to wait another 30 minutes before the doctor comes in. I know I look pitifully sick and as if maybe I don’t have a life but really I do, so don’t hold me here for this long.

4- If I’m talking to someone on the phone and she/he is busy on the computer or doing some other fascinating thing that is more interesting than talking to me. Here’s what I think: Just tell me you need to call me back later because you have something else to do now or better yet just let the phone go to voicemail and I’ll leave a message. You can call me back later when you have time to carry on a conversation with me. This lets me know I’m almost as important as that television show you have poured yourself into. I promise to do the same for you.

 5- If I have eaten healthy all week, drank water, even exercised a few times, I mean really made an effort don’t have the nerve to tell me I haven’t lost any weight! My response may be to pick you up and break you the next time I stand on you Mr. Scale.

6- When I go to a restaurant and receive my order incomplete, please complete it before I finish the rest of my meal. I came there hungry and I would wait but I can’t so I take a bite here and a bite there, then my food is gone before I know it. It would have been better with the broccolli. My response: the tip would have been 20%. Sorry still learning that grace thing.

7- If you tell me you are going to do something I just want you to do it, unless you are gravely sick or something. I get my hopes up (when will I learn) and then I get let down. That’s what I get for putting my hope in mankind huh? Really though shouldn’t I be able to have expectations of some people? If you’ll come through for me, I’ll come through for you if it is at all possible.. Well I usually try to come through when I say I will no matter what you do.

8- A recent irritation is that Lola eats everything in sight. Vacuum cleaner bags, the molding around the windows, food from the pantry, stuffing out of a pillow…. The most aggravating thing is that she eats my books! My books, my prized possessions, the covers are torn off, pages ripped out etc. Yes I have taken precautions and began putting them up higher, and building blockades around the bottom shelves. However this a new thing for her. Anybody got any ideas why she had begun doing this all of a sudden? My response is to be angry and walk around talking to myself about how mad I am about what my dog is doing to me.

 9- I don’t like it when someone has to be right all the time. It’s so sad when a person can’t just except that he/she can be wrrrrrrong sometimes. My response to this: I will have my opinion but I will be tactful about giving it. There are times I will let you believe you are right when I don’t feel like a debate, but inside I still know you are wrong. And I'll be willing to consider that I may be wrong too.

 10- It does bother me when no one comments on my posts. I know people just read and not many comment but is there a way to change this? I like to discuss, debate, and converse. I had a post get over 1500 reads one time and not one comment. Now really I had to wonder is this post any good? Why are they reading it? If it’s good why aren’t they commenting? My response: I will comment on your posts when I enjoy it, when it causes me to think, when I agree or disagree, just because I'd like to get to know others in the bloggy world.

Sounds like I’m in a bad mood today, huh? Not really just wanted to get some stuff out on “paper”.

What is one thing that irritates you?
