  1. What are everybody's pet peeves (not nursing related)?
    I'll start---my husband digging in the doritos bag for the most covered in cheese and throwing the rest back!!!!

    Mine is the grocery store. I have so many pet peeves about the grocery store that I can't even begin to name them all. I swear I'm going to have an MI one of these days!

    Dry foods left open in the summer to wilt

    People who eat with their mouth open... I absolutely cannot stand this.
    Smacking the toothbrush against the sink a bazillion times after brushing...what is the point of this? More work for me on Saturday AM cleaning
    I really shouldn't go here...I have too many to put into words

    Good Idea!!

    My pet peeves is:
    • Someone getting the last of something and not getting more to replace it--toilet paper, napkins, soap in the shower, etc. This does happen at work too, like someone getting the last nurses note and not replacing the supply. AHHHHHHHHHHHHH

    Amazing how all these things are universal!! What about not getting payed for the work we do!! I suppose the hospitals would go broke!! Or kids who expect to get their pocket money when chores are not done! If I have to work for it then so do they! LOL!!

    besides all the ones already mentioned......except for the cheesy dorito story that is.....let's see:

    1. not putting another jug of bottled water in the fridge when it's obvious one is needed in there to get cold before the last drop of the one left is gone.

    2. bothering me when i'm obviously busy talking to my allnurses family. :d

    3. trying to seduce me when i'm watching big brother, american idol, survivor, or a movie that ony i am into at the time.

    4. the phone ringing late at night, or very early in the morning, only to hear a telemarketer or wrong number person on the other end.

    i'm sure i'll recall more as the time passes. stay tuned!

    congratulatons, debzoo, on your successful weight loss! good job! :kiss

    SOmetimes I'm just so frustrated by the time I leave the grocery store! I actually went off on a woman in the express line the other day! I'm not even gonna get into it because I'll be typing forever, but the grocery store is pure hell.

    ANd ANYTHING left empty that would have take 2 seconds to replace. Also people that put uncovered plates of food in the fridge. SOOOOOO GROSS!
