I really hate it when...

  1. ...someone right in front of you drops the door on you, because they didn't look back to see if there was someone behind them.

    Also when you make a point of holding the door for someone and they don't say thank you.


    Anyone else? What relatively insignificant every-day things really get your blood boiling ?

    How about when you don't have an umbrella and it's pouring outside ... you're walking under an awning that has enough room for only one and a couple of guys also under the same awning - walking towards you who DO have umbrellas - won't move so you can stay under cover???

    ps... I pushed them out of the way.... jerks!

    I hate it when my kids/husband don't replace the toliet paper. There you are and you don't notice until you need it. Drives me nuts. I want those big industrial size toliet paper despensers installed in all my bathrooms. You know the ones that hold a roll of paper as big as a tire.

    Someone who doesn't use a turn signal and you are waiting in the left hand turn lane, they are coming towards you very slowly and you are waiting for them to go by so that you can turn.. well they decide to turn.. UGH..

    Classmates in clinical who stand in the middle of the hall while the instructor is instructing, someone needs to get by, usually in a w/c and the the student just stands there that's annoying. Some people think the world revolves around them only. ugh !

    When you sneeze and the only other person in the room doesn't say "bless you" :chuckle it bugs me, I'm just mentally trained to
    "bless" others...and other common courtesies like please & thank you.

    I hate it when I'm giving report to someone and suddenly find that I'm defending myself and explaining judgment calls instead of giving report to someone who doesn't have enough information to make that judgment.

    I also hate it when someone decides that I, standing up and trying to get information from a chart, am less busy than the PCT sitting at the desk; therefore, i should be "helping" the PCT. Who always gets her break, and coincidentally clocks out about an hour before I can.

    But maybe I'm just having a cranky week.

    I hate it when my husband puts his underwear BESIDE the hamper instead of IN it. (He's getting better but still not perfect...)

    I hate it when I get on the elevator at work and make a bit of small talk with the one other person who's on there and they don't say anything. That's not shy, that's rude. Not hard to answer a question.

    I hate it when they schedule 8 or 9 people every weeknight and then cancel one or two, but on the weekends, they schedule 5 or 6 and have to either run short or pull in nurses who don't know how to work ICU. (Bitter because I got cancelled tonight, but we ran short Saturday night!)

    We have traffic rules here that say you can turn right at an intersection after stopping to make sure that it is clear. I hate to sit in the right lane waiting to turn behind a car through the entire red light only to have them turn right after the light changes.

    My wife has this strange idea that clothes should be on a hanger, in a drawer or in the hamper.
    Whats up with THAT?

    I hate it, when, as not-vehicle-owner aka as "walker" or "bicycle-nutty", it's pouring rain, have to wait for the red light and ssssppplllaaaaaaaasssssssssshhhhh, some f..khead driver bathes me down to my underwear! Turns his head at my scream, looks at me and laughs!!!!!
    Went to the police once, but they just laughed at me too, don't stand so close to the road when it's raining was all they said.
    You just got to hate them!

    I hate waiting in line at Wallmart, 100 registers and only 4 open so don't buy anything frozen or it will melt. I hate rude people. I hate traffic jams.

    I hate it when I use energy to hate. Its a valuable emotion, but sometimes ENOUGH already.
