A List Of Annoyances. Do You Agree?

  1. Does It Annoy You When...

    There's a car alarm nearby that goes on for
    hours and the owner is nowhere to be found?

    You buy an answering machine so you won't miss
    any calls, and then everyone hangs up when they
    hear the machine answer?

    There's a cop car in sight and everyone thinks
    they have to drive 10-15 mph slower than the
    speed limit?

    You're reading a magazine and all those
    annoying little subscription cards keep falling
    out?

    You tell someone that a door is locked and they
    try to open it anyway, like it'll magically open
    for them and not you.

    Someone says, "well, to make a long story
    short" and then they go on telling it for another
    15 minutes.

    A friend or family member says "This is
    awful!!" and then tells you to try some.

    You have to inform five different sales people
    in the same store that you're just looking around.

    You rub on hand cream and can't turn the
    bathroom doorknob to get out.

    A waiter or waitress is not around at any time
    other than right after you put food in your mouth.

    Your tire gauge lets half the air in your tire out
    when all you want is a pressure reading.

    There's a dog in your neighborhood that barks
    at EVERYTHING.

    The power goes out, and you discover every
    flashlight you have has dead batteries.

    Someone gets in the express lane at the
    supermarket and writes a check or uses a credit
    card.

    The elevator stops at every floor and nobody
    gets on.

    You almost ALWAYS back up your computer
    files but the week you don't, your hard drive
    crashes and you lose everything.

    You bust your butt to get to dialysis early, and you are STILL the last one on the machine.

    You are on a fluid restriction, and your doctor insists on prescribing you medications that need to be taken with a FULL glass of water.

    You are in the hospital and have just come out of surgery-- and the Maintenance crew decides they need to buff the floor in front of your room-- for three hours!

    You are on your way home from dialysis and some schmoe almost runs you off the road. Hey, if you're gonna kill me, kill me on my way TO dialysis-- I don't want to spend my last 4 hours on Earth in the dialysis chair!

    No matter what time of day or night you decide to do your grocery shopping, when you come home, someone will be in your parking space.

    The more annoying the TV commercial, the more times per hour it will be shown.

    Whatever TV show you have been eagerly looking forward to will be interrupted by a Presidential speech that drags on for an hour and imparts absolutely no new information-- and you get to see the closing credits of your show as the station skips to the news.

    oh, and let's add:

    You have 10 near-amputations of you foot while trying your best to shop at your local Walmart?

    I get particularly annoyed with drivers who go 10 to 15 miles per hour slower when a cop is present. You may still drive the speed limit. Duh.

    or the people who drive 20 m.p.h in a construction zone when its posted 50, Or they wat until the very last second to merge so they can get in front of the line- those people come so close to driving me to road rage. LOL

    I guess they don't realize that they could get a ticket for going too slow as well as too fast!

    Or when you're in a #8level of pain in your chest and rising, and your doctor looks at you like you're nuts. :angryfire

    Like I said before, I have decided to offer to trade bodies when it happens. :hatparty:

    Good idea, Fran. Maybe the doc will get it soon. Or maybe you can find a nice NP to go to in the future?? (Obviously, I'm a fan of NP's. They have been the only medical professionals to really listen to me in the past).

    I definitely agree girlfriend, and I may just do that yet. There is one in the same office as my PCP.
