Shit that annoys me volume 398


Sharing the same photo everywhere (Facebook, Instagram, twitter, blogs). Sorry everyone, I love you and your photos, but when you share your pics on multiple sites all the time, it drives me insane.

Sperry top-siders everywhere. They're not that cute.

When people act like recipes and crafts originate on Pinterest. Everything on pinterest is pinned from another website. Nothing originates on Pinterest.

 "So hype!" People do know it's hyped, right?

Grocery shopping in the rain

People who are so busy finding something to criticize in all situations that they take 0 minutes to appreciate anything good. Judo chop to the throat for them. 

Shredding chicken. Ho hum. 

Cleaning out muffin pans

Spring ants

When I stop to let someone make a road maneuver and they don't give a courtesy wave. Ill-mannered cretin motherfuckers. 

When a box gets left inside on recycle day and I have to stare at it for another week, which I do, obsessively

People who congregate in front of exits or entries to talk like no one needs ingress or egress. Get out of the way, jackholes.

Bloggers whining about blogging and how hard it is. Last time I checked Pol Pot was not threatening your life if you didn't blog or didn't blog well - blogging is your choice. I get feeling overwhelmed. I don't get whining about it to people reading the thing you're whining about.  Get over yourself. You sound ridiculous.

Tell me...what shit is annoying you lately?

Not annoying: This summer things giveaway from me & Suze @ Straight on the Ground. It includes Beach Music by Pat Conroy (one of my favorites), Essie polishes in Sunday Funday and Madison Ave-hue, this awesome reusable bag that can carry stuff to beach/pool as well as in and out of stores, Hawaiian Tropic SPF 30 and an after sun lotion, EOS lip balm in sweet mint, and Yes to Cucumbers face wipes to get rid of sunscreen build up, sweat and summer grime. Good luck!

  1. You. Kill me. I can't stop laughing. I hate it when people walk slow. When they take up a whole aisle at the grocery store with their cart and comparing products.

  2. HAHA these are all so great. That last one annoys me too! I thought I was the only one. Why does everyone blog about how hard it is ... if I dont feel to blog one day I wont. Thats it. And when I need a break Ill take one!

    Also ants ... eww!

  3. When I let someone through and they don't courtesy wave that bugs me too. It's just good manners. People who talk really loudly in open areas is really annoying and those who stand around blocks entrances are just so rude.

  4. It drives me crazy when people post the same pic to FB, IG and twitter every single time!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. is "hype" back in? because that was circa 1990s for me.

    and bitches need to quit whining. blogging is not hard, you just live your life and come back when you can come back. like me this past week - i've neglected to respond to comments and/or comment on blogs (except my favorites of course) because i'm too busy enjoying my vacation and guess what? I REGRET NOTHING. i'll be back and the blog world will go on without me.

    here's what annoys me: when the GD kids across the street run all over my lawn that i have to open the door and yell at them and be *that neighbor* who is seen as the crabby old lady across the street!

  6. I bloggy break all the time. It is still there every time I come back. I love shredding chicken. Haha but people who leave their grocery cart in the parking lot or grass. I want to become violent.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Do you hate the act of shredding chicken, or do you hate eating shredded chicken? Or both?
    Not giving my a courtesy wave if I let you in during bad traffic makes me batty.
    I love Sperry's, mine are covered in sequins, lol.
    I can't stand Toms. I live the concept and charity, but they are not cute.
    People who say " oh, you're a CAT person," like they think I've gone all Mike Vick on dogs.
    People who don't put grocery carts back.

  8. Do you have a Kitchen Aid? This can shred chicken in minutes!! No need for the double forks or fingers!!

    ReplyDelete
  9. SPRING ANTS!!!! They just showed up at my house (in my kitchen) yesterday. Rage.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hahahaha. Yes to all of this. My 14 year old son who wears size 14 shoes was convinced he wanted Sperrys...I was like nooooo. They've ugly anyway and they are going to be extra ugly in size 14. Luckily the store only had one pair in that size, and even he thought they were ugly. My friend recently clued me in that the Kichen Aid mixer is the best way to shred chicken...just cook and dump it in with the regular paddle and it shreds to the perfect consistency.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ahhhhh I am so tired of hearing bloggers blogging about how hard blogging is. SO freaking annoying!!

    I might have Sperry top sliders. But mine have leopard sparkles and I got them on clearance for $30 so ummmm yeah I am going to keep on rocking those bitches and you can give me the side eye.

    We just killed about 20 ant piles out in our yard. As I was sprinkling the poison powder I was all "You're going to die mothaaaafuckkkaaaaaasssss" It was creepy and fun.

  12. To go along with congregating near the entrance and exit, I would like to add that people should not congregate in front of the nametag table or the food table at events. NO ONE can get by, EVERYONE is saying excuse me, and there is a whole rest of the room. MOVE IT. Clearly you have stirred something in me this morning.

    Totally guilty of the pic oversharing, oops! But there are different people different places and I try not to do it on the blog without a "bonus pic" attached in a collage or something.

    I get it on the bloggers whining about blogging. Some of my posts about blogging have gotten the best responses, though, and as I think we've discussed, everyone likes to come together over negativity. But, I think I know what you mean - if it's stressing you out, then just take a break!

  13. I both shredded chicken AND cleaned muffin tins this weekend. Both aer surprisingly annoying, lol. I don't get the sperry thang, myself. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  14. Kitchen Aid has changed my life with shredding chicken, it is the best!! I actually found out about it on Pinterest - ha! Just kidding it was YouTube :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Bah, I love my Sperry's. Easy to throw on and off and I can wear them to work without looking totally frumpy. I probably could write a whole post about bloggers complaining about blogging but now I'd be complaining about bloggers blogging. It's a vicious cycle.

    School traffic is annoying me today. I can't wait for 3 glorious months of less traffic when school is out.

    ReplyDelete
  16. oh my effing god, when people stand in really awkward spots, like the entry or exit, or when they just STOP and i walk into them and im like FABULOUS PLACE to effing stop effing idiots.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Your brother Sean has a ton of Sperry's and a ton of shoes period, so does Stephen #boysworsethangirlsnow.
    Agree with all of your stuff. I really do like the canned chicken from Sam's for any recipe that calls for shredded chicken. Ingress and egress- I widen my vocabulary horizons by reading your stuff. First I read egress as egret- one of my favorite birds, LOL. #seashorebirds
    Enjoy this beauty of a day.

    Love your MOMMA

  18. If I am nice to driver and let them over and then don't get a wave- it really pisses me off! A little simple wave, that's all!! I just take unexpected breaks when I'm crazy and I don't care what anyone thinks. I started blogging privately and then got into public blogging and sometimes I don't feel like writing a post... Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  19. The people congregating in the way thing drives me to distraction! Like, HEllo! You're not the only person in the universe - look OUT MFer!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I share photos in multiple places- my dad is only on Twitter so I usually share whatever I think he might like that I put on Instagram also on there. I can see why its annoying but I'm not stopping ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. People standing in the ingress/egress is the WORST! I will actually herd people away with a comment about it being a PASSAGE way not a STOPPAGE way. ARRGGGHH.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Grocery shopping in the rain is the worst, getting everything to and from the car while I take an unwanted shower just blows.

    Also tourists who stop in the middle of the sidewalk to chat or read a map, just because you're not driving doesn't mean you shouldn't pull over when you stop bitches.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ha ha! Karate chop to the throat! Lately everything has been annoying me, I think I'm PMSing. Like we had this godawful winter, then like a day and a half of spring, a little more snow, and now it's 90 degrees? I want my money back. Also my kid is sooooooo whiny. It never accomplishes anything, I wish he would figure that out and quit it! okay, rant over. (oh yeah -- awesome giveaway!)

    ReplyDelete
  24. How about I was going into the grocery store yesterday and an older woman grabbed her cart and parked it in front of the door so she could grab a sanitizing cloth to wipe it down. I said excuse me and she just looked and smiled. No bih, I'm saying excuse me as in move yo' ass out the way!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've been wearing sperrys for years, didn't realize they were everywhere now. I guess I'm the hipster of sperrys! Ha. So for the chicken here's a tip! Put the cooked chicken in your kitchen aid mixer and mix it and it'll shred it for you!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh crap...I am annoying you with a few of these...oh well, close your eyes and pretend you don't see me on the days I piss you off! LOL! One being the same photo shared on a few social media channels. OOPS! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. omg grocery shopping in the rain is the worst! What annoys me... stupid people in stupid traffic at 5pm it makes me want to punch turtles!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ugh to washing muffin pans and shredding chicken. I hate the look of muffin/cupcake liners but washing the pan is such a bitch. I also make a giant mess while shredding chicken. I saw someone post about shredding it in their KitchenAid mixer, and i just don't know if this is worth getting the whole damn mixer out to do.

    I want to like Sperrys, I really do, but they make my feet look giant. I hate the Target workers who stand at the top of the checkout line and tell you which line to go to. I would like to pick my own line, thank you very much. Also, when a new lane opens and someone at the very back of the line moves to the open on. Um no, that is not how it works. The NEXT person in line gets to move to the open one.

    I am annoyed by paw prints on my floors. Even if I wipe their paws, they are not completely dry, and perfect little paw prints show up. It is like Hansel and fucking Gretel around here, with little trails of prints all over the house.

  29. I forgot to add that, in an effort to remain a calm pregnant person, I am trying to view other people driving like douchecanoes as people who are rushing to get their wife to the hospital, rushing to see someone dying in the hospital, etc. I'll let you know how it goes.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't even know which one of these to start with. I agree with so many. Shredding chicken is a bitch! I too give the stink eye to forgotten recyclables. They should know to be with the group! And "so hype!"... is that a thing? People actually say that? Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Not a fan of Sperry shoes either! Hate when people block exits...get the F out of the way...basically when anyone acts like a self-centered asshole it make me angry :) BTW...I totally had to go look at the Land's End site yesterday after reading your post and ended up buying two skirts...I blame you :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I often feel overwhelmed with blogging (or rather not blogging as I feel I should). However I try not to express this bc it's 110% up to me.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This list is awesome. And YES to the blocking exits behavior.....this applies to all people who are clueless that they're in the way of others. We all have to share this world, be aware. Totally gets my hackles up (whatever that means)!

    1. That's the common denominator, isn't it? People who are clueless about how their actions affect others.

  34. Grocery shopping in the rain is so annoying, especially if you bought a crap ton. Everything gets wet and it sucks. Spring ants are even more annoying. Ugh. Love the confessions and thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I feel the same way about people whining about blogging. If you need some time away, take your fucking time away... don't blog every day anyway and bitch about it the whole time.
    Do you have one of those stand up mixers? I heard you can shred chicken in those.

    ReplyDelete
  36. lol so many good ones! Isn't it great having a blog where we can express our frustrations.? Can't stand ill-manners or plain old stupid drivers!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ill-mannered cretin motherfuckers is my new favorite term. And grocery shopping in the rain just blows.

    ReplyDelete
  38. cleaning out muffin pans is the actual worst. i like sperrys. but i don't actually own any. that shit is way too expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love it all...also I was super guilty of sharing my photos on all sites but that shit stopped as soon as I got rid of FB.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I get around shredding chicken by cooking it in the crockpot. That shit shreds itself when it's done. And cleaning muffin tins is the WORST. it's why I make Scott do it,

    ReplyDelete
  41. I do not understand the Sperry craze. I don't find them cute at all. I have a couple of friends that are obsessed!

    ReplyDelete
  42. So I might be guilty of posting the same pictures in multiple places, but it's usually because I'm unorganized on the blog most days. Also, I hate cleaning muffin tins - I'm tempted to by a baby bottle cleaning brush because my normal scrubber barely fits inside each muffin hole. Grrrrrr.

    ReplyDelete
  43. girl you know I can write some chronicles about this one! I 100% agree! I honked at someone the other day when I let their stupid ass out in front of me and they didn't wave! Ugh learn some manners!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I do share funny photos, but what bugs me on Facebook is when someone dies, everyone has to post about it. Yes, I know such and such died, I have Google.

    Shredding chicken does suck. Same with cooking in general.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes to ALL of this. Although I do like Sperrys, I'm not over them yet. I'd still take TOMS any day given only one choice, though.

    You should try out being vegan. No more chicken shredding. ;)

    Lately the thing that's pissing me off is the lack of manners in the majority of men in this town. In the last few weeks I have been almost run over NO LESS than 5 times at the grocery store by men in a hurry pushing their carts around. Not a single apology. The other day a group of 3 men who obviously knew each other were standing and chit chatting in the middle of an aisle, I literally stood there for 20 seconds waiting for them to move - and I'm 110% sure they saw me - before I finally was all, "EXCUSE ME." One of them moved about 2 inches, the others didn't...I'm normally a nice person but I rolled my eyes and scooted past them with a "REALLY!?" I just didn't give a @#($*& that day. Clearly they didn't either. Oh, and they were all in their 40's and 50's, so it's not like they were clueless teenagers or something.

  46. Shredding chicken is the absolute WORST. And most of my favorite recipes require it. Also, I appreciate your use of the words ingress/egress. Followed by Jackholes, naturally.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I own a pair of Sperry Top Siders and do like the way they look, but one always flops off my foot which makes me more likely to trip. Because of that, I hardly every wear them.
    People congregating and blocking the way is the worst!

    ReplyDelete
  48. This is fantastic! I have nothing to add right now, but I'll be honest...now that you mentioned them, these annoy me too. Guys wearing mandals and knee socks annoy me, I guess. And people with ugly feet wearing flip flops. Seriously...do they look at their ugly feet and think anyone else would want to see them? And people who make noise when they eat..slurps, or gasps before a bite like they're going free diving...are you kidding me? Chewing with their mouth open...that's another. I better stop before I get too far gone. Thanks so much for the laugh. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  49. My neighbors annoy the ever-loving shit out of me. I remember how hard it was to be a twenty-something and have no consideration for anyone else, but they are noisy, lazy, and park like asshats. And that's my rant. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I can't believe you don't like Sperrys :-( I LOVE them!!

    I hate when people are like, so-and-so stole my idea for recipe, DIY, craft, etc... I'm like, Sure they did, because you are the first person that thought of it. *sarcasm.

    I hate going anywhere when it is raining.

    Blogging isn't hard at all. You either write or don't. It isn't that serious. HAHAHA

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm guilty of posting an IG photo on Facebook, but not every time. It depends on the photo since FB is mostly family and none of them follow me on IG, Twitter or my blog. You can hide or unfollow me somewhere. It won't hurt my feelings. We have teeny, tiny ants in our kitchen!!! Pest control is coming tomorrow morning. Boo!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Not getting a courtesy wave is the ABSOLUTE worst. I always contemplate side swiping them afterwards, but I care too much about my car.

  53. I only share pictures that I'm over the moon about on multiple social media outlets. Other than that, it's too excessive. I too, hate shredding chicken, but I LOVE eating shredded chicken!

    ReplyDelete
  54. There is an all out ant war going on in my house. Every day I think, finally, I've won! And then...there they are again the next day. Resilient little fuckers!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I cannot stand when I'm nice in traffic and don't get the courtesy wave. BOO!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Ok right, there's like 10000 omg blogging's so hard posts right now, right? it's not just me? wtf dude, I've been on a break and I'm just all 'see ya bitches!' It's really not a big deal.
    AHHHHH that standing around exits drives me bonkers. Especially when they go through a revolving door and then just stop. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! What do you think is going to happen?! Ugh.
