Speaking of Pet Peeves

...or as Kristin says, "things that get under your skin," why don't we do a list of top 5 or 10 things that irritate you. And then top 5 or 10 things that take the edge off, or make you happier. Put a comment on this post if you are going to do the activity on your blog, so we can all check it out!

5 Pet Peeves:
  1. Drivers not using turn signals and then slamming on the brakes to turn.
  2. Telemarketers. Add to that, those completely automated telemarketers. You say, "Hello," and there's a silence and then the recording starts. You know the ones.
  3. Teachers who can't spell. Seriously, people!
  4. President Bush saying "nucular" - that drives me insane!!! Sarah Palin did it too! THE WORD IS NUCLEAR! Noo-clee-ur. Practice it, know it, and stop being an idiot.
  5. Hair clippings in the sink. Ickkkkk.

5 Things that Cheer Me Up:
  1. When people start singing along to the radio. (I especially love singing to that song "Chicken Fry.")
  2. Seeing a dog to pet in Petco. And a new favorite activity of hilarity - watching the mice cages at Petco. Hours of fun!
  3. Hearing a message from Anna, Emma, or Matthew (little children) on my answering machine.
  4. Finding a paycheck in the mailbox.
  5. Snow falling.
Now your turn.

Give me a few days. I'll get right on it. And the nuclear thing is irritating in ways that I can't even describe.

Stop by my place for a prize.

I think I might have a hard time finding five irritants, but I can think of one big one . . . BOSS
. . . that says it all.
