    Just a Few Things...

    I have pet peeves just like everyone. But the few things that really push my buttons are: My 12 year old sister. People who try to force their beliefs on me. Peadophiles and people who think peadophiles can change and/or are worthy of a second chance. Abuse to humans or...

    GRRRR!!

    What really pushes my buttons lately? The way some people insist on rating other people's attractiveness on a scale of 1-10. Or on a scale of anything for that matter. As if a persons worth can be reduced to a mere number based on looks. If I hear one more person...

    Oooh What Does This Button Do?

    Gee well, I've never really had them pressed so I don't know what they are. I've gotten upset but never so much that I've gotten angry or pissed off. I pray I never find out which is the button that must not be pressed.
