Things that are Annoying Volume 327


  • Happy by Pharrell. Yes, I know you all love it. 
  • Tomorrow is the first day of spring and there isn't one goddamn 60 degree or higher day in the 10 day forecast. 
  • The girl on my morning train who has her text alert on so freaking loud, it's the only sound every other minute. 
  • Constant whining. Life isn't fair. Get over it. 
  • Incessant and insidious dog hair.
  • Godforsaken potholes.
  • Snow on Saint Patrick's Day. That's too late, winter. Move along. 
  • People who beep their horn the second the light turns green, before you can move your foot from the brake to the gas. There is a special road in hell for you where the cars never move, the doors are sealed shut, and the radio only plays Bieber for eternity. Enjoy, motherfuckers! 
  • Kris Jenner. Everything about Kris Jenner. 
  • Menacing homeless people. You go your way and I'll go mine, homeless friends. I'll buy you a bagel. I'll bring you socks. I'll call Project Home when it's too cold for you to be on the streets. In return? Do not spit at me when I have no cigarettes to give you, man with no shoes near 16th & Market. Do not follow me around Logan Square shouting at me about being a whore white girl who fucks all the black guys in the shelter, guy from my lunch walk on Tuesday. Okay? Mental illness is an epidemic, we need better care.
  • My alarm every morning.
  • Some of my shows. The Originals and Reign got the ax from the DVR this week. 
  • Zits at age 37.
  • People who refuse to use contractions. FYI, your writing sounds too formal, not uber intelligent like you're intending. 
  • Luke Skywalker. He's such a whiny bitchass. 
  • Head bands on foreheads. Foreheads don't need a decoration. 
  • Wearied fitness gurus complaining about crowded gyms in the spring. So sorry. I forgot you were born in the gym, own it, and are cranky that a bunch of people want to be healthier and look better before they have to start wearing less clothes.
  • Not washing my hair then getting to work and realizing I should've washed it. 
  • Google. I have two gmail accounts and access to MFD's calendar (also a gmail account) and it keeps playing hocus pocus and signing me in and out of shit. This happens to me every year when I try to renew the domain for this blog. 
  • People who insist on say no spoilers years after shows have ended. I feel an immediate overwhelming urge to give a complete plot synopsis and tell you ALL THE SECRETS! 
What's annoying you lately?

  2. ugh winter is rearing it's ugly head again today and going to be pissing freezing rain. the day before spring officially arrives. what a whore.

    and while many homeless peeps are nice, some are downright mean!! my friend bought a muffin for a guy and he legit threw it back at her, told her to fuck off and chased her down the street!! RUDE!!

    thanks for linking up!

  3. Right there with you on all of these! I almost spit out my coffee over the hell for impatient drivers! Ha! We set 3 alarms every morning and somehow my husband manages to sleep through them all until I say something...this sometimes starts my days off with homicial rage. :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. Not that the homeless man's mental illness is funny but what he accused you of kind of is. I mean clearly he thought you were someone else, no? Also I mostly hate writing "I'm" and nearly always write I am and if you haven't noticed it before, now you will. I think I have an accent when I say "I'm" aloud so I say and therefore write "I am." Happy by Pharrell is the worst and when I told my coworkers that, they insisted on playing it on and off all day. It was not the happiest day at the office...

    ReplyDelete
  5. The serious amount of potholes and them not being fixed is giving me serious road rage. I totally don't get the headbands on the forehead either, WTF?!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Excellent list. Lately I've been getting mad at facebook again. I go through phases when I swear I'm never going on there again...that lasts a day, because I feel like everyone on there has become my real friends, so I miss them too much to stay away...lol. That being said though, I still hate when people say "check" after everything they did that day, I don't like hearing about how everyone went to the gym for 98 hours and are training for some kind of race, and I still hate pictures of feet, wine, coffee or my ultimate pet peeve of saying "the hubs."

    1. hahahaa My instagram is full of feet and drinks. I am so there with you on THE HUBS. Stop! EVeryone!

      I hear you about facebook. There are people I'd miss and people I would NOT MISS.

  7. I am going to dance around our pool with that Happy song blaring on opening day, like the pool is a May pole. I just have to, especially after this winter that will never leave. Amen on the Kris Jenner and all the K's/J's. Why we give them & these other "reality" stars so much attention/income is beyond me. I cannot believe the homeless people say such things to my daughter. I would have to go after them and give them the "what for", but my heart also aches for them. They have no place to go. Mental illness is the worst. Happy to see most of my chickens here tonight for another birthday dinner for you! Goddess speed and enjoy the day! Love your MOMMA

  8. A great list, even though I do love Happy. But it's (contraction!) all good, I still love ya. I wish I had heard the homeless guy yell at you, fucking priceless. Just can't help but wonder how people get to that point, and why isn't there anyone who ever cared enough to help them. (I mean, family/friends, not you). Epidemic, indeed. I can't wait til Kris Jenner changes her name to Kardashian, further proof that she is mooching off the name of her daughters and dead husband. I wish they would all fucking go away already.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I still had zits at age 57... truth be told, I STILL get them! (don't mean to be a whiner... )

    ReplyDelete
  10. LOL I hate it when I don't wash my hair and realize I should. Straight up hate it. I don't know what happens between my house and work... but I swear, there's a change.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I liked Holly Holiday's version of Happy on Glee last night. I am intrigued that you dropped The Originals. Tell me why. Is it because there is no conceivable interesting direction for the show to take? LOL

    1. Yes. And because they never made Damon come over after they burned down the town of Mystic Falls and all of its annoying residents.

  12. This list is awesome. Yes for forehead headband things. We are not native americans and it just looks weird.

    ReplyDelete
  13. oh i'm with you on happy. there are like 8 words in that song and then repeated over and over and then OVER. my alarm is the worst. also the worst is that i have to go to work in general.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh it makes me so Happy that you don't like Happy...see what I did there?!?! Lololol. I need more coffee. I thought I was the only person who hated that song; all they do is sing the same damn line over and over again. I hear you on the weather; we don't have anything above mid-40s in the 10 day forecast and today is rain turning over to snow. Fucking over it.

    I laughed about the contractions because I teach my students not to use them in academic writing (a big no-no in APA style) and don't use them myself when doing writing for work, so it is almost like I force myself to use them when I write blog posts.

    And speaking of the Jenners, did you know that Bruce Jenner does motivational speaking on college campuses now? And got his Adam's Apple shaved down? I mean, how long before he is a woman?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I've never heard Happy, yes I could look it up but why bother I'm happier in my Happy-less life I think. Also this is how I know I'm old.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm really not a huge fan of that Happy song either. I caught like half of it on the radio this week and I was like, "THIS is what everyones obsessed with?!" And yes, google sucks at everything!!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I hate "Happy". I'm about to ax Justified. It's not holding my interest.
    I thought you meant people who don't use contractions like can't vs. cant. I see an awful lot of missing apostrophes in blogland…

    ReplyDelete
  18. I freaking HATE happy. That song is just awful and needs to quit.

    You axed the originals?? But but....Elijah!

    If you don't want pot holes, then move out of PA. They are all over that entire state!

    I want to know when zits will ever really go away. My mom still battles them...so clearly never?

    Forehead headbands are for hippies and babies. Let's move to something else!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I fucking hate Happy and hated it the second I heard it. I had high hopes since "it's the best song everrrrrr omg" but everyone who is saying that is a liar.

    1. NJ drivers always occupy a spot on every Philly person's list.

  21. Oh. My. God. I snort laughed at the horn blowers one! Seriously--can we make that hell a real thing and send those people there? And anyone else we hate? Everything else? I 100% agree with. Yes yes and yes.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha this whole thing made me laugh. I just had the horn thing happen to me yesterday! Then I got really annoyed because once I did get foot from brake to gas & on my way...the guy behind me was so slow... yes I can see you were in such a hurry to get somewhere...

    ReplyDelete
  23. The potholes are unreal, seriously. You can't even drive around the streets near my building, it's just a bunch of giant potholes.
    And the headbands on the foreheads. Ugh. You just look stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hahaha I LOVE the description of where those asshole drivers will be in hell. It's perfect for those kind of people. What's annoying me right now - allergies. And it's not even full blown spring out yet!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. LMAO this literally cracked me up. I agree with you 100%!

    1. It's good to bond with people over annoyances. Cheers!

  26. If you don't like "Happy" then you're broken. #sciencebomb
    Potholes. Ohhhh, the potholes. Every day on my way to/from, well, ANYWHERE, I wonder if it will be THE time that my tires blow out. EVERY. TIME.
    I have a decoration on my forehead right now. It's called a zit.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 1. I hate Happy.

    2. Reign, I tried to love it, I really did. But, I don't!

    3. Someone complained recently about a Harry Potter spoiler recently. What 3 years after the last movie? People are crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  28. This cracked me up.

    There is someone in my office - I haven't figured out who it is yet, I think it's a part-time person - and I can always tell they're here because their freaking text message alert is set at about a billion decibels AND it's this stupid bird whistle thing. One of these days I'm going to hunt them down and smash their stupid phone, I swear. IT'S CALLED VIBRATE, PEOPLE.

    Luke Skywalker is whiny, Anakin Skywalker is worse. CANNOT stand him. The first time I saw the newer Star Wars it was hard to even focus on the movies because all I wanted to do was smack him in the mouth.

    It is snowing here too. I'm finally over it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can't stand that damn Happy song. never have, never will. it's way too overplayed, people need to stop.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think you would like happy if you saw me dancing to it. It puts me in a good mood and I dance around like a fool - have I mentioned I am 8 months pregnant and it's hysterical!

    1. Now that sight would definitely make me happy, Gladys. Regardless of the song!

  31. Haha "bitchy" must be catching today. I'm working on a rant post too.

    I feel the same way about people who whine about other people at the gym. I actually read recently someone saying something about hoping the people who jumped on the "weight loss bandwagon" at New Years fall off soon, so "those who are serious about it" can get back to it. Sorry...who made you queen of fitness?!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I literally feel like I can see you stabbing away at your keyboard as you were furiously writing all of these. Can Kris Jenner and Bieber go somewhere together and never come back....preferably before she made all her weird spawn clone children?

    ReplyDelete
  33. The last couple of times I watched Reign I fell asleep- so sad because at first I loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG headbands on foreheads! Hate those hippies!! What look are they trying to go for there? I don't get it. Maybe I'm just too old for it. Seriously though, we went to the Continental for brunch a few Sundays ago and saw a chick in her 30s wearing one and it just looks like you are trying too hard. Wow I am opinionated about those headbands apparently. Sorry the crazy homeless people spit and chase you! I watched 2 episodes of the Originals before I decided to stop. Still watch VD though. I am giving glee the axe though, which has been a long time coming.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I kept saying, mmhmm, mmhmm, til I got to Luke Skywalker when I just bust out laughing. :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. F the zits....why? Why? I don't get why they just don't go find an 18 year old face to play on!! UGH! I am sorry it's still cold....come visit me!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ugh.. the zits. Sorry about the snow. Snow fun to have green beer while wearing parkas. I also have the Google problem. It's random, and thats what makes it worse. ARRRGGGHHH!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm annoyed by all those Kardashians. I still don't get their point.

    I can take that Happy song in doses. Meaning if I hear it today, I don't want to hear it again for like a month.

    ReplyDelete
  39. If I use contractions I have no idea lol. Originals has been axed by me. Great list.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I really tried to hang on to The Originals. Blah.

      Delete
  40. Ugh, I was on an Amtrak train where someone's text alert was also annoyingly-loud. Geez. If you know you're about to get a text, or you're already having a convo, turn it to silent. People who need click-sounds for their keystrokes also make mad. I forgive my hubs for having it turned on though ;). LOL on the contractions. I might be guilty!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Girl, I just starting stalking/reading your blog this week and this post has validated that I think I love you. I cannot STAND that song, Happy. Ironically it makes me very, very angry. Probably the only thing more annoying is Kris Jenner. Oh and this, "Not washing my hair then getting to work and realizing I should've washed it." Yeah, that happened to me on Wednesday. It was not cute.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Loving your Spring banner and I swear you have the best mug collection :). Zits at age 37 totally had me laughing because at 34 I know there is nothing funny about that!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm surprised Kris Jenner hasn't changed her name back to Kardashian yet. I don't use contractions very often. I'm a legal writer and they are verboten. When I proofread my blog posts I try to go back and switch to some contractions.
