Things That Have Annoyed the Crap Out of Me Lately

January 20, 2015

in no particular order and with no real system going on here:

there is no 's' at the end of my last name.  there's just not.  there never has been.

you do not turn right from the left lane.  and vice versa.  you just don't.

the pressure of thinking this post needs a photo.  it doesn't.  so there isn't one.  ta da!

oh here's how to totally piss me off in one goddamn fell swoop: expect other people to do your work for you because you've been too lazy to do it your fucking self.  i get procrastinating, i love it myself.  i never procrastinate to the point though where i need another person to help me finish in time.  certainly i've never left it for someone else to do completely.  do your work, even if it sucks and you don't want to.  it's called being an adult and that's why we're allowed to buy alcohol.

comprehensive list of reasons it's acceptable to call me before 6:30 a.m.: you're dying.

if you want to write a post, write it.  if you want to say something, say it.  if you preface everything that comes out of your mouth with some sort of disclaimer, i'm just going to assume you're weak.  not everybody has to like you and the choices you make all the time.  particularly when your choices are dumb.  who cares?  you do not have to defend your decisions to anyone but yourself and occasionally a police officer.  (probably avoid that 2nd path though...)

if you hate your husband so much, why did you marry him?  if you don't hate your husband that much, stop talking about him like you do.  you look bad, not him.

yahoo mail.  i don't know why i bother.

the lack of a mute button on instagram.  i don't want to mute people entirely, i just want to mute anything that's not pictures of pets, is that so wrong?  maybe also drinks.  and food.  and pretty makeup.  but i definitely want to mute baby pictures.

taxes.  tax season.  anything related to getting my financial papers all ready, including the check for the inevitable amount i'm going to owe.  damn taxes.

why do you come to work when you're contagious?!  that's just disgusting.  stay home.

myself - stop clicking on articles about mama june, stephanie.  you're just making yourself crazy.

  1. I cannot stand when people bad mouth their significant other, but then turn around and be all nice and sweet to their face. What is the point?? If you really think that badly of them...then leave.

  4. it annoys me when people do the whole disclaimer, i'm sorry etc but I know I do it too.. leftover teenage wanting to please everyone? It's stupid, I know. and the husband thing seriously.. or even boyfriends.. why do people talk shit about or baby their significant others? it's so weird.

  5. I want to mute baby pictures on Instagram too! They should really jump on that one.

  6. This was the perfect post to read as I sit here waiting 45+minutes for labwork. Why didn't I make an appointment????

  7. Great list:) Being easily annoyed must be in the air right now.

    1. I think it's a January thing. Everyone cooped up inside and tired!

  8. YES on the disclaimer! Drives me nuts. Same with taxes and bad mouthing your significant other (on the other hand, it bugs me to no end when people make it like the sun shines out of their significant other's ass and he/she can do no wrong and is definitely WAY better than yours). The pressure for a good photo is one that I've stopped caring about.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yessss! All of these are so on point. The significant other one is right up there on my list, too. I just don't get why it's necessary.

  10. Hahaha! Yes! All of these! :)

    If one more person makes their procrastination my problem, I'm going to go postal.

    1. Ugh, it makes me bonkers! "your lack of planning is not my emergency" I keep telling them, but they still do it.

  11. haha! Yes, to all of these! One of my childhood best friend's used to talk to her husband in a terrible way all the time. I used to tell her about it all the time...which of course didn't go over well, but it needed to be said. I just hate seeing anyone belittle someone.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yes. Yes. Yes. Especially the talking bad about your S/O. If you always talk shit I'm going to tell you to leave & then when you try to say good things about them I'm going to assume you're just reaching for excuses.

  13. People put an S at the end of your name? Why? That makes NO sense. Definitely would irritate the crap out of me. But yes yes yes on the baby pictures. My friend just recently had a kid and she literally posts 5+ pictures a day. Yes, we get it your kid is cute, but I really don't care that he sat up for 45 seconds today.

    1. It just sounds like it flows with the s I guess, who knows. I hate it.
      ugh new moms are very guilty of the multiple photos. I guess the grandparents care but dude, your friends don't. Staaahp.

  14. People always put an S on the end of my maiden name. Or said Springer. Like Jerry Springer. So totally wrong it's not even funny. I talk shit onG all the time, but pretty much just to his face :)

  15. This is a great list and I second all of these things!

    Can I add blasting your phone on speaker so that entire office has to listen to the elevator music while you are on hold...then your obnoxious conference call play by play there after???

    ReplyDelete
  16. LOL! I can definitely agree with many of these. The contagious thing at work is super gross- my BOSS refused to take a day off even when his whole family was sick and he was germy and gross. I literally TOLD him to please stay away from me!! I wish I could filter things on Instagram... like show me MORE of this kinda' stuff and less of these kinds of things.

    ReplyDelete
  17. So true about it all! lol I agree with the talking bad about your husband especially. At the end of the day you're still going to be with that person and you aren't leaving for a reason so stop looking like an idiot talking about your life partner! I really hate negative people like that.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I have been annoyed all week so I can totally relate to this post! Yes to being able to filter out things on Instagram, it only shows me 8 hours at a time and half is from 2 people who over post.

  19. I definitely do not understand why people come to work when they are disgustingly sick. If you have fluids coming out of your body, stay home.

  20. PREACH PREACH PREACH. Especially about explaining your decisions. police officer. haha. MUTING. i want to mute so bad on insta. i have one girl in mind (a friend) who posts like 25 times a day. make it stop.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ugh. People who come to work sick are enough to ruin my day. Sometimes I want to say, "Hey, can I take your sick day since you don't want it? Because I certainly don't want to be around your germs."

    1. Seriously! I'll stay home away from your illness, you work if you really want to that badly. I just follow them around with Lysol, they don't take the hint.

  22. Yeah, all of those! Well, except Yahoo mail, because I don't have it, so it can't annoy me. I get irritable when people post things about how much they hate their husband and how they really just need to be done, and you're being all supportive... and then three days later they post a picture of them and their husband kissing, and it says, Oh I love my husband blah blah blah, and you're like, "Uh... three days ago he was the Devil!"

  23. I like that many of these are both incredibly specific and incredibly ambiguous all at the same time. Well done, your sarcasm is a level I aspire to :)

  24. SO accurate. To all of the above. Especially baby pictures...and 6:30 a.m.

    1. 6:30 is the worst. There is no reason for phone calls that early, ever.

  25. Love it! Also about the disclaimer thing. I literally was writing a post and thought, Oh I'm going to upset some people with this and almost wrote up a disclaimer but eff it! It's my blog!

    1. Oh yeah just go for it girl! Write what you want, it's not a big deal to upset people. That's their problem.

  26. Who in their right mind called you before 6:30 am? I can't even think of a reason that's acceptable unless something terrible has happened. Oh, and can we add to this list friends who still think it's cute to drunk dial on weeknights? We're almost 30. It's midnight. IM FREAKING SLEEPING.

    ReplyDelete
  27. seriously, I can't even w/ the accuracy of this post. hashtag preach. can I add one of my own? we're waiting in line for the bus, we're all waiting, that's what the line is for, and we're all freezing b/c it's literally freezing out; who the fuck do people think they are, cutting to the front of the line? this happened to me twice today. "annoyed the crap outta me" is an understatement.

  28. Thank you! You just helped me decide what to write about for tomorrow. I feel like I'm constantly annoyed.

    1. I hate when I hit publish before I've finished my thought.... I hate when people complain about their spouses and then don't do anything about it. Yeah I'm a hypocrite and we aren't even married thank God!!! But I left ex husband number 2 after 8 months. I usually have no tolerance for much of anything.

  29. Every time I read one of your posts, I love your blog even more. I'm always annoyed about everything, even if I'm in a good mood. It's a bit of a curse.

  30. I think we all need to write posts like this once in awhile.

    1. Absolutely. It's cleansing for the soul!

  31. If someone could invent a mute button for babies, or engagement announcements, or... i don't know... crazy depressing news stories about kids dying or killing each other (that's for me. Geez people, stop sharing that shit!), they would be a gazillionaire.

    1. Indeed they would. I'd pay them for sure. And sad stories about animal abuse, I cannot take those.

  32. Amen on the "post needing a picture" pressure. The world will not come crashing down if I don't spend 15 minutes trying to find some random gif to add to my post just because the blogworld says I should!

  33. "do your work, even if it sucks and you don't want to. it's called being an adult and that's why we're allowed to buy alcohol." LmAo! Touche and I am ever so grateful for it. So many night caps provide me with great relief after a sucky day. I agree with almost all of these, except the 's' at the end of the last name because you can't add it to mine. It'd be more difficult to enunciate. Lol. Yahoo mail needs to die - someone needs to pull the plug, I had one when I was in middle school and haven't checked it in over 5 years. Have a great one Stephanie! -Iva

  34. I've had to abandon Yahoo mail. I've simply had it.

    People not doing shit that then turns into my emergency makes me INSANE.

    I am sick of reading blogs that start out with sorry I haven't been blogging. Stop. You are not Jesus and the people aren't waiting for you to turn the water into wine so they can survive. Blog or don't. Don't make a thing of it.

  35. "comprehensive list of reasons it's acceptable to call me before 6:30 a.m.: you're dying." <--YES.

    ReplyDelete
  36. ALL OF THIS. Well, I don't have Yahoo mail, but the rest of this, yes. An Instagram "mute" button needs to happen immediately...best thing to ever happen to Twitter, I'm serious.

    And the badmouthing of the spouses...that makes me absolutely ragey. Because like you said...if you hate him that much, leave.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The first one!!! YES. People always add an imaginary "son" to the end of my last name...just doesn't exist.

    1. so frustrating! I can see why they do it but... still not your name. Ugh.

  38. This made me smile :) I will completely loss my shit when I have to step in and do other people's jobs because they are idoits and slackers. That is the worst. I also hate when people are idoits at their job and supervisor's defense is that they are nice...really good they can be a greeter at Walmart :)

  39. "It's called being an adult and that's why we're allowed to buy alcohol." HAHA - brilliant.

  40. Yes to all of it.

    Yahoo, really? My best friend still uses it. I don't get it.

  41. I hate yahoo!! Just recently started switching everything over to gmail. It's so much nicer!! I even have all my Yahoo mail sent to gmail now so I don't have to deal with it!!
