- Most of the parents in the school pickup line at Liam’s school, the worst offenders:
- Those who pull ahead and cut in front of the line of cars waiting and pull into an empty space just vacated by someone who just picked up their child. They must have temporary blindness to not see the line of cars WAITING THEIR TURN.
- Those who double park next to the cars who are waiting in line next to the curb, blocking the cars who are pulling through in the DRIVING lane.
- Those who PARK in the waiting lane (when there are plenty of actual PARKING spots available 10-20 feet away), get out of their cars, meander to go get their kids and are therefore unable to pull forward when the cars in front of them move and delay further the cars behind them who are waiting to get their kids. These people do not appear to be handicapped and unable to work the extra distance from a parking spot to get their kids.
- The school pickup situation makes me stabby, stabby, stabby mad is what I’m saying. Just follow the unspoken rules of common sense, politeness and social consideration.
- Anyone who wakes me up who is not a) sick, b) bleeding, c) suffering from a broken bone or d) has not been asked to wake me up (though that last one is still a little iffy, because a morning person I am not.. [why yes, Jack did wake us up at 5:20 this morning, why do you ask?]
- Cashiers who act like their could care less about moving at a reasonable speed when scanning your items. I get that they are there for their set number of hours and it makes little difference to them how many people they serve, but wouldn’t their day be so much nicer if the people they were helping didn’t want to hurt them because they were going SO BLOOMING SLOW [not that I would ever hurt someone for this reason, nope, I’ll just badmouth them on my bloggity blog – I slay with words].
- Teachers and anyone in childcare who do not appear to actually like children.
- People who drive a) too slow or b) too fast (i.e., recklessly, because, let’s face it, I drive faster than the speed limit a bulk of the time and I don’t drive myself crazy).
- Door-to-door sales people – not a single one has ever come at a convenient time or convinced me to buy the product/service they were selling.
- Anyone with a sense of entitlement that they have not earned.
- Any parent who judges another parent when they are at the grocery store or a restaurant, as if their own children were always perfectly behaved.
- The entire cast of Jersey Shore – I can’t see a “news” story about them and not sigh or roll my eyes.
- Newscasters with gratingly annoying voice mannerisms.
- Nickelback, Nikki Minaj and Kesha
People who do not drive me crazy: YOU. You are awesome and beautiful.
So, who drives you crazy?
