(And their kids are usually uglier than a mud fence!)
Nice one. Noted it in my insult notebook.
On a more serious note, and at least several notches above a pet peeve, uncooperative drama-queens that must get some sort of twisted satisfaction out of peeing on everyone else’s Cheerios at every opportunity. And who made the rule that there has to be one in every situation? I’m sure that we all know people like that. That s#it just wears a person down after a while, doesn’t it?
What ever happened to earbuds? Earbuds were nice; they kept the music to the one person that wanted to hear it. Now most seem to skip those and just use the "speaker" in the phone.
The number of people that walk around the office with their own personal soundtrack following them everywhere they go astounds me. We aren't in their house, it is a place of business and I didn't go into their work area they came into mine. Beyond the choice of music there is the painfully bad sound quality blaring out of a tiny speaker in their pocket. There is absolutely nothing that would be pleasing to listen to on that.
I guess it boils down to the standard 'screw everyone else, I do what I want' attitude that permeates what passes for society anymore.
I had to renew my passport; it cost 110 bucks! That´s a lot of money for me
I have to have my residency permit put into it, and that costs €67
It was free 10, 20 and 30 years ago...
I guess I'm the odd one with that. We live between a large city and a small one. The small one's stations run a lot of the local commercials and I prefer watching those. Although I rarely watch anything with commercials that I can't skip past anymore, when I do I find the cheap local commercials less annoying than 90% of the big budget ones. It may help that I so rarely see them that they are typically new to me when I do. Most times when watching live TV I can only make it through 1 or 2 commercial breaks before I give up and find something else to do.
But I do agree, leave the kids out of the commercials. There used to be a car dealer that ran radio ads with his kids in them and they were the worst.
My health insurance premium. I just got a letter from the insurance company and I kid you not, my payment has more than doubled for next year. I'm going to look at another company but unless there is some mistake they'll probably be about the same price too.
Any place I worked at had a policy that your music had to be audible only to you. Can you talk to your management?
Join the club.
I'm on Medicare, but wifey's premium is higher that it used to be for the both of us.
Anyone in the mid-south area that was alive in the 80's will surely remember Fleming Fine Furniture in Memphis. Those kids were SO annoying!
I need a garden shredder since I can't burn the stuff anymore. The shredders from the garden center are cheap but of poor quality. The shredders from the specialist shop are great, but they cost minimum 700 Euros, but I am not able to afford that.
Try a machete with an old tree stump or log for a cutting surface? They are very inexpensive here in the States.
But they mostly work on softer vegetation and twigs, not so much on woody branches.
OK here's mine...G&%d@(#^d IDIOTS who don't secure their loads.
In particular, the knuckle-dragging mouth-breathing hag-born moron who lost a square bale of hay off his truck right in the middle of a 4-lane divided highway (70 mph) on Friday night. Which I HIT with the right front of my car with a loud THUMP because it loomed out of the dark too fast for me to swerve. Broke the connectors on the right hand end of my bumper, destroyed a fog light fixture, and I lost a piece of plastic fender liner that goes in front of the front wheel. Went back with a flashlight to see what I hit (looked like a cardboard box as it went flashing past) and all I found was bits of dried grass all over the place...suddenly dawned on me that I had demolished a bale of hay. The only good thing was it did no damage to tire or wheel.
Dude, you suck. May the fleas of a thousand hay bales infest your crotch.
In a semi-related story, I sold an old car off for scrap last week. Some dude in a tow truck came out here to get it, hooked it up, and did nothing at all to secure it before busting out at break neck speed from my yard. The nose of the car was literally dragging the ground, and he already tore the bumper loose by the time he got out on the road. Not my circus, not my monkeys, but you'd someone would have better sense than to do that, especially on a gravel road!
Another pet peeve of mine.....people that obviously want to sell something in the classifieds (gumtree, craigslist etc) but don't leave a phone number to call them on.
Or they have a ph number but don't answer it when it rings and don't reply to texts.
I mean what the?
Item sold but still advertised for sale, sometimes days/weeks later. If it's sold take the ad down.
Young adults who feel it's ok to go shopping in pajama's at 2pm in the afternoon. The chick was gross in a dirty, bunny pajama; he was wearing a dilapidated white tee and pepper pj bottoms. Both had greasy, unwashed hair. For Christ's sake show some pride!~
They won't insure farms (at least not in CA).
It seems like all cakes these days come with about 5 times more frosting than anyone wants.
In the late 80,s early 90,s i dodged a full size car hood on i-75 down around Detroit on my bike at speed.
All the extra warnings and second languages we have to have on anything with chemicals in it. It makes the actual directions so tiny they are nearly impossible to read. Do I wait 30 minutes or 80 before a second coat?
Separate names with a comma.
