HAS IT EVER BOTHERED YOU WHEN... can't separate the two parts of paper to open the Band-Aid wrapper? have to try on a pair of sunglasses with that stupid little  plastic tag in the middle of them?

....the person behind you in the supermarket runs his cart into the back of your ankle?

...the elevator stops on every floor and nobody gets on?

...there's always a car riding your tail when you're slowing down to find an address? open a can of soup and the lid falls in? can never put anything back in a box the way it came?

...three hours and three meetings after lunch you look in the mirror and discover a piece of parsley stuck to your front tooth? drink from a soda can into which someone has extinguished a cigarette? slice your tongue licking an envelope?

...your tire gauge lets out half the air while you're trying to get a reading? wash a shirt with a tissue in the pocket and your entire laundry comes out covered with lint?

...the car behind you blasts its horn because you let a pedestrian finish crossing?

...a piece of foil candy wrapper makes electrical contact with your filling? set the alarm on your digital clock for 7 pm instead of 7 am? rub on hand cream and can't turn the bathroom doorknob to get out? can't look up the correct spelling of a word in the dictionary because you don't know how to spell it? reach under the table to pick something off the floor and smash your head on the way up?

...your glasses slide off your ears when you perspire?

Me, too!

Some annoyances:

Sorry that this one if blurry, but i HAD to put it in!

Yes, I know there'e no "e" in "shoving".

No one can be happy ALL the time!----not even fishducky


  1. All but the parsley in the teeth...I don't eat the parsley, and the hand cream one, but that made me laugh...a lot.

    THese were great!

    May I add that piece of molton cheese that sticks to the roof of your mouth and gives you 3rd degree burn on that first bite of pizza.

  2. These are sooo true! Especially this one: you drink from a soda can into which someone has extinguished a cigarette?

  3. You so totally made my day, this is too funny. and yes, all those things bother me so much, I'm going to see my therapist today.....

    1. ...when your therapist calls you by the wrong name?

  4. When people run into me with a grocery cart, I scream and fall on the ground, shouting "Law suit." I love watching them run away.


  5. I peeked in Happy Face's window once and he was scowling just like that before he turned the sprinklers on me.

    1. Serves you right for being a peeping tom!

  6. Some one stepped on my toe ( with her high heels) in a stand up meeting at work. I couldn't even say ouch because the manager was already upset with low sale's figure from the day before. My son noticed my black and blue big toe and freaked out when I said " What do you mean did I get hurt?"
    Poor thing, it took me a whole day to remember about the meeting. He felt better because there was a reason.

  7. You just described my whole week.

  8. These were great! I was chuckling many times reading your list--LOL! :)

  9. Dear Fran, actually every one of those incidents is something that has happened to me and I've said, "Oh, fiddly-foe!" or "Darn it!" And sometimes, especially when someone behind me honks like that, I find myself getting angry! Peace.

  10. Watch your language, young lady!!


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
