    Talking On The Cellphone On The Potty

    When nature calls me at work, I just want to sit down and poop in peace. The last thing I want to hear is a pooping cohort in the next stall talking on his cell phone. Dude, you're just not that important to be talking on the phone while taking a ****. When this happens to me...

    It drives me crazy when I peel what looks to be

    a huge delicious orange only to find on the inside a fleshy juice-less disaster. Quite the metaphor for my life as well.

    Children Screaming Needlessly

    I don't know about everyone else here but when I was a child I was taught that it was only OK to scream if I was in pain or in danger. Yet it seems today kids are allowed to squeal over everything. Went to pizza hut the other day and I do accept that children will be there...

    Say It Out Loud Dammit!!

    I just recently discovered a new pet peeve of mine. It drives me crazy when I'm in the middle of an arguement and the person I'm argueing with mumbles something under their breath and refuses to tell you what they said. Don't say it unless you have the balls to say it loud enough...

    time to reset your password!

    make sure it has 13 characters with 3 capitals at least two numbers and it's required to use special characters. To make sure you won't remember it, you can't use the last 7 passwords that you have used in the past!

    Judgemental people! Sigh.

    Clean the lint trap when you're done with the

    dryer. Change the roll when the toilet paper runs out. If you drop something on the floor, do pick it up; at least before you leave the room, if not right away. Don't hide behind walls and doors because I'm "yelling" at you or simply asking you to have a little consideration...

    Sometimes it gets a bit noisy with the kids

    and my attention is drawn. Sometimes my focus is just on something else. It drives me batty when I don't hear what someone tells me and after asking them to repeat it...I hear "nevermind" with a tinge of irritation to it. I have better things to do than launch into an apologetic...

    I Strongly Dislike Guys Telling Me I'm Legal
