11 Things That Upset Me / Make Me Mad / Tick Me Off

1. When B1 is doing homework and says "I don't get it" and I try to explain something to her but she already has in her mind that she's not going to get it and so her mind is closed and she doesn't even TRY to understand what I am saying.....

2. When Shinza has muddy paws that must be cleaned before she can enter the house.....

3. When I step in water (even just a little drop) with socks on.....

4. When a waiter or waitress doesn't write down your order. Come on people, write it down. I would rather you bring me the correct order than be impressed with your memory skills!

5. Ooohhh.....this one really gets me fired up: when people assume that the Triad School District consists of only people from Troy.....Hello??? What do you think 'triad' means?

6. People who eat what they want, don't exercise, and don't gain weight.....

7. When B2 cries over the dumbest things, and when she speaks in her baby voice.....

8. People who are loud but really have nothing to say and only want to be the center of attention.....

9. When Hubby knows that B1 is pouting or unhappy about something and instead of just blowing it off or letting it go, he continues to badger her and poke at her about it.....

10. When you are in another state on vacation and you tell someone you're from Illinois and they automatically assume that you live somewhere around Chicago! Augh!!!!! NO, people, there really is life south of Chicago! I have now begun responding with "Illinois, but NOWHERE NEAR Chicago"

11. When you have worked on a concept in class for over a month and a student still looks at you like you are speaking in a foreign language when you are working a problem that they should know easily by now! (Um, yeah, if you would just DO YOUR HOMEWORK, we wouldn't have this issue!) AUGH!!!!!!!

I don't like people who talk loudly on their phones in waiting rooms, and you are stuck listening to their conversation whether you want to or not.

Socks in water is a big one for me- eck! I also despise those ear bud things people wear. I can never tell if they are crazy or on a phone call...

Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog! I'm especially pleased to find out that we are from around the same area(or close enough) and have kids basically the same age.

I agree with stepping in water with wet socks and the Illinois/Chicago deal. I still say that the powers that be need to make a North Illinois and South Illinois - split the state.

Looking forward to reading your blog!
