I think we've done this some time ago, but though it would be fun to bring it around again. These things you 'hate' can be light or serious, but I would hope it didn't turn into a political or pro/con site to argue about the state of the world except in general terms. I know I have no control over what anyone may chose to post, but I'm just really in the mood to share some serious silliness or silly seriousness.

I'll start:

I hate treacle-people; soooo sweet they make your teeth ache just talking with them. 

I hate having to do something. If it is unavoidable, that irritates me to the point of just getting it OVER with so I don't have to anticipate it anymore.

I don't care if people pick their noses, I just don't want to  watch them do it.

I hate it that I have as hard a time being as good to myself as I am to other people. I do like helping folks in unexpected ways, it makes me feel so good to be able to do that. But, I have had an ingrained message from infancy that I am a LOT of trouble to take care of (chronic long-term colic) Apparently in some respects it is a subconscious thing that, but while I am also aware of it, it is a bugaboo, being a deeply woven part of myself. Hard to not succumb.

Goodness gracious, that's enough for now! I didn't mean to get ....whatever that was...but, hopefully some others will chime in with their grrrrrrrr irritations, and also, any "Queen For A Day"-type stories are welcome as well. We won't be giving a grand prize like a washer or a refrigerator, but just...THANKS for joining in!

I truly dislike it when I'm waiting for a person crossing in a crosswalk using a walker while the driver behind me honks LOUDLY!

PS: My Grandma was on Queen for a day when she was the age I am now. She asked for a car with automatic transmission and power steering so her hip wouldn't hurt using the clutch when changing gears and struggle to turn the wheel. She refused to tell the true story about paying her husband's medical and hospital bills after he died, being an orphan, having type diabetes, or being homeless during the depression. She also got her hair fixed, lipstick on, and a new dress before going on the show. She said she didn't really want a mink coat.

The old lady who won had two people help her on to the stage, had on a skirt with the blouse half tucked in, and cried all through her story. She sobbed and blew her nose telling how her husband had died. She asked for plane fare so her grandchildren could visit her. 

After the show my sister told her, "You should have been more pitiful." She said, "I have more pride than that. That woman looked like she didn't even brush her hair. Soon after that my Dad took her shopping for a 'new' used car. It was low mileage with power everything. My Dad got himself a new Volkswagen with AM AND FM radio so he could listen to the jazz station.

Just for fun here is a video of one of the shows:

Ooooh, ran into this one this morning. People who are making a left turn but stay all the way to the right of the road. Especially when otherwise there'd be enough space for the cars going straight to pass them on the right (legally, of course). There's a few local roads where the shoulder is literally 8 feet wide and yet there are people halfway on the right shoulder to make a left turn, holding up the 20 cars behind them 🤦‍♀️ (oh, and then they end up turning on red because the opposing traffic kept going)

Ooh, ooh! I've got another one: 

People who gather with their kids, other family members and/or  friends around their shopping carts talking and visiting ... right in the middle of the aisle at the grocery store!  They should at least pull over and get. out. of. the. way!

Health care providers that talk down to me like I'm a child. How about you check my level of understanding at the beginning of the visit? 

And I hate it when they refuse to have a plan going forward, other than saying when to come back. Unfortunately, I have run into a lot of this in the past year and it is so frustrating.

People who leave their grocery carts in the middle of the aisle while they go to get something. 

Patients who are rude and yell at the people who are trying to help them.

Anyone who is mean to animals.

herring, I LOVE your 'Queen For A Day' family-anecdote, and the snippet you posted. It was the weirdest show, wasn't it? There were plenty of times when I thought someone would win, but they didn't. It should have been named "How Pitiful Can You Be?"

Y'know, the lady encased in (and advertising) the Ex-Lax box could barely make herself smile.

It seems, looking back at the show, that Jack Bailey was kinda , uh, a smarmy puppet-master; just MHO. He milked their misery.

Seventeen straight months of Private Duty-care for a MiL who has Grossly Omnipresent  De(luxe)Mentia ...  .....Unfortunately guaranteed not to rot, crack, split, tear, peel, or run-down-at-the-heels. 

*sigh*

PS: This is not a request for helpful advice, this is a full-out wail of misery,  ie, Venting off steam after a particularly BAD day. Thanks.

When both of my phones ring at the same time, and the office pages me while I am talking to a technician.

What I really intensely dislike is when I think of something I want to post here, and then by the time I get to this spot...
