Things that annoy me

I have a lot of things that annoy me, but the annoying things usually happen when I'm driving or away from my computer. So tonight's list is short because I'm going from memory and y'all know how well *I* can remember stuff.

1. When you're in the line at a drive thru and people think that 6 feet between their front bumper and the car in front of them is sufficient space. It's a drive thru! Move up moron! Is anyone really going super fast through that line that they might actually do damage if there happened to be a fender bender?! I mean, really?

2. People who use the self-checkouts at stores that have absolutely NO IDEA how to scan items. I'd just love to be in their heads as they try to figure out that the barcode must pass over the scanner. "hm, maybe if I press the label of my soup on this red line, it'll scan. Nope. How bout the top of the can. Nope. Maybe the bottom of the can. Nope. Oh, I get it, I get it. It's the back of the label." beep "Sweet!" Next item. "I bet Cap'n Crunch's hat has the secret code on it. Nope. I bet it's this maze game on the back. Nope. I bet it's the bottom of the box." beep "Score!" And so on. Holy crap people. Get a clue!

Wow, I sound like a completely horrible person, but I swear I'm not. Much. Really!

3. This one has to do with my sweetie. I love it when I make a new recipe and you don't eat it at all. You taste a tiny bit of sauce with your finger and decide not to eat. Makes me feel great!

And a whine. Bon has had a stressful week at work, which has meant long hours for him. Well, it's been long hours since we moved really. He leaves here at 7:45ish and then most nights will return between 6:30-7. Last week really sucked because after we would eat, we'd get the kids to bed and he'd fall asleep with them. So I hardly saw him. That's how it's been this week too, except for falling asleep, which he's only done once this week. But oh well. I hope that once this stressful thing is over, maybe he'll be home earlier. It's not like his job saves lives or is something so vital that it can't wait for tomorrow. At least, that's how this grumpy wife sees it.

I never thought about that at the drive thru. I'm always the one leaving a gap b/c I'm not paying attention. And yeah I never do self check out unless I have like 2things b/c I always get the one that breaks or the barcode is all crinkled and won't scan. Sorry Bon is working so much, BTDT and it sucks.

I would have had a lot more on my list... so don't feel too bad. Pretty much everyone and everything annoys me, or at least Jason thinks so, he says I complain too much. Jerk!
