Things that chap my ass*

*currently
Zits right in the line of my nostril or along my lip line

When I don't like the nail polish after I have it on my nails

When people whine about something they don't like but won't actually take action against it or stand up for what they do want. Here's a tip: complaining is not actually DOING something. Get off your ass and effect a change.

Prefacing a question with, "Can I ask you a question?" Seriously?

Do you want to build a snowman? / Let it go.

People who enter the train through one door and instead of going into that car, turn and go into the other door's car, causing a backup. Sorry, I'm not letting you go in front of me. Get in the queue behind the door of the car you want to be in and wait your turn like everyone else.

Cars stopping at intersections that have no stop sign

Smelly dogs. Mine are stink, stank, stunk right now. 

Being unable to enter a hotel room at check in time. This may or may not push me to make a scene in your lobby. 

Hearing "I'm bored" from anyone of any age, but especially adults. Seriously? You're an adult and you can't figure out how to entertain yourself or think of anything productive to fill your time? Some days I think my greatest skill will always be my ability to self entertain. 

Kate Hudson. I can't explain it. 

Sexy Anything for Halloween. It lacks imagination. If you want to dress in a manner you consider sexy, you don't need a Halloween costume as an excuse.

  1. TOTALLY with you on the bored thing. Like, seriously? Read a book. Write in a journal. Call a friend. YOU ARE NOT BORED YOU ARE LAZY.
    Another irrational thing that drives me nuts is when people say they're starving. No, you don't even know what real hunger feels like (I don't either, for that matter). I'm not sure why that irks me so much. Just say you're hungry, not starving. #imweird

  2. Zits in general are annoying. Like serious we are past puberty, just quit it hormones. I get bored at work at times but they monitor internet. Haha. On my own time I am never bored, always a good book to read, or a project to be made just waiting.

  3. Oh my God, that picture of Geege! Zits along my nasal line or lip friggen hurt like hell, especially when I go to pop them. Ouch. I detest when Steve says I'm bored. I can find a zillion things for him to do.
    -when people rush on the elevator before the ones who need to get off have a chance to.
    -someone standing thisclosetome in line at the store.
    -drivers who don't wave when I let them into my lane/turn. Fucking acknowledge me asshole!
    -Ebola panic. Sneeze in your elbow. Wash your hands. Be aware.
    -that the cats love Steve more than me.
    -foundation that isn't blended down into the wearer's neck. Sometimes we are in a rush, so you get a pass or two, but if you continue to not blend your foundation, I will think less of you.

  4. Zits make me rage. Why are they still happening?!?! And why do they have to hurt? It is bad enough that they look awful but they feel awful too. My husband complains of being bored and I just want to be like WTF?!?! I want to tell him, there is an entire house to clean, or garage to clean, or grass to tend to, or books to read, movies to watch, go work out...just stop bitching! haha!

    I cant stand adults at the work place who can't clean up after themselves. If you use a mug, put it in the dishwasher! Don't leave it half full sitting on the sink or in the sink, rinse that shit and put it in the dishwasher. Your mom isn't here to clean up after you!!!!!

    And people that walk slow in public places. Don't walk taking up the entire aisle if you aren't keeping up with the flow. GTF out of my way!!!

  5. I am with am with Marla people that stand too close to me or anyone in line. Back the Fuck off. I have addressed this. Driving in the left lane of a major highway the turnpike etc not passing and never getting over. When I look at them as I pass they look smug like they are doing a public service driving slowly in the left lane. Elevator etiquette those getting off go first. Oh and this is gross but I have seen it time and time again in public restrooms. Tampons laying in the open. There is a bin for them or at the very least put them in the trash by the sink. Eew.

  6. lazy bitches at work. i emailed this one person for a screenshot of a system she has access to and do you know how long it took her to do that? FOUR DAYS. don't come at me saying how busy you are that you can't take 5 seconds to do this one simple thing that requires zero brain power. then i see the bitch in the kitchen chatting and laughing so i went up to her and said: "oh, i see you have time to laugh and chat, that must mean that you can finally give me my screenshot" and i followed her to her desk and hovered over her until she did it. #RAGE

  7. This post is hilarious. And the photo of your cute dog with his "side eye" he's giving you. HAHA! But I agree to everything. YES YES YES!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I despise Kate Hudson in a way I can't explain. Always have. I also feel this way about Gwenyth Paltrow and Cameron Diaz. There's much more interesting actresses out there.

    I think I have lulls as an adult..I don't think I can ever claim boredom. I mean, read a book or something if you're bored.

    ReplyDelete
  9. people without train etiquette drive me up a wall too. Also people who clear their throat super loudly. Just irks me.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Haha poor duggies! Now I want to watch The Grinch :)

  11. Oh lady YES TO ALL OF THESE (well, except maybe the train thing because I don't ride a train). But especially the "bored' thing and complainers without action! My dog is stinky right now too and I DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX IT!! She gets a bath so frequently and still..STINKY!

    ReplyDelete
  12. people who turn anything into a complaint--like they could be given a million dollars and would complain about it. i get a lot of those ppl on my blog and it pisses me off.
    lack of manners
    thinking it's all about them
    one-uppers--i had a cold. oh, well i had the flu and this and that and that. um, ok, you weirdo.

    ReplyDelete
  13. STEPH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG. I cannot believe someone shares the "I'm bored" with me. In adults, it drives me batshit crazy and I went on this crazy rant on FB once, lol. So funny

    ReplyDelete
  14. People who get to work late, at almost 10 a.m. When said person arrives, she is on personal calls with her daughter and the daughter is loud on the other end of the line I can hear her, then it's nap time. She is clueless as to where our boss is (we work for the same attorney), and whose office like a shit storm. People who have 100 messages on their phone. Then naps again. People who act like they are busy, but I know she's taking naps, I can see her in her office, head bobbing and weaving. She blows her nose EVERY SINGLE DAY between 2 and 2:30, there is nothing there, it's whistling, stop it already. This lady is my pet peeve.

    1. Oh dear Lisa, she does not sound like a coworker that's good to have around. I had to LOL at the naps. RIDICULOUS!

  15. I feel the same way about nail polish and always feel bad about asking them to change a color after they have painted it...oh well LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  16. People who feel they are above doing things that aren't in the job description. Such as filling the coffee pot with water or if the trash is obscenely full and/or smelly and leave it there for the cleaning people to take it out instead of taking it out themselves. I could go on and on.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I also hate third eye zits that spring up in the middle of the forehead where nothing can really hide them. They're like a headlight.

    Grown adults who take their cell phones into the stall in a public restroom and carry on a conversation need to go. What is SO IMPORTANT that you can't hang up to pee? SO NOT OKAY on so many levels.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The bored thing - absolutely! There are so many possibilities, especially as an adult. I don't even get "bored" while waiting in line anymore, because A) Any downtime with just me and my thoughts is appreciated B) There's probably someone nearby to commiserate with and C) If you really can't stand to wait patiently, we now have these amazing devices with us at all times that allow us to read, watch, and play just about whatever we want.

    I sometimes say "Quick question" as a preface when I'm approaching someone who's busy, like a cashier. That way they know I'm not going to be a pain in the ass, or add another task to their list, and they'll be rid of me fairly quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ahem - I have a zit on the inside of my nostril - and I hate it. HATE IT HATE IT HATE IT. All my strength not to force that bad boy out. ALL MY STRENGTH.

    I hate complainers - and when said people ask for advice... AND YOU JUST KNOW THEY ARE NEVER GOING TO TAKE IT. Don't ask then - Right?

    Kate Hudson - I agree - and I'm not sure why - and the male version of that for me - Elijah Wood.

    And Sexy Halloween - nope nope nope.

  20. Love the pug butt & the phrase chap my butt and the asterisk currently.
    I am never bored either, never, ever, ever! Hello, books,crosswords, internet, instagram, etc.
    The whole train situation, selfish seat users, the germs all crunched together, someone in my space. #no
    Amen, on the nail polish, I only experiment on toe nail polish. My mature hands make the palest colors more becoming. I do not like when I go into Ulta with the 20% coupon and spend a fortune and never think I get enough off! My own fault! Cyberspace whiners who need attention and are takers. Why didn't you ask me, I am so sick,
    this is bothering me(never mentioning what and wanting people to ask) Ok, enough, I am basically happy to be
    where I am in my journey here, but fun exploring this topic.
    Happy Friday Eve/ Halloween Eve! #thriller
    Love your MOMMA

  21. "I'm bored" drives me insane. There is no reason to ever say that. I also cannot stand when people say they don't have time for something. You have the time if it's important. You'll make the time. Don't make excuses.

    Stinky dog breath, bad nail polish, and a book that sucks, especially when I've been waiting to read it all get on my nerves. Oh, and people who don't understand or care about proper parent pick-up line etiquette.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am the person that says can I ask you a question. I KNOW it's annoying coming out of my mouth but I just can't help it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. NOTHING irritants me more that drivers who shouldn't be driving. I'm a bad "I'll scream and yell at you" in my vehicle knowing very good and well you can hear me! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  24. We have a "keep going lane" as an exit off our main hwy, every single person in the world stops/yields there. I get sooooooo mad!!

    I no longer say I'm bored because it's not an accurate description of what I'm feeling I've realized, when I feel bored it's mostly because I'm restless or have been stuck inside my house to long.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yes yes yes yes to the subway people. Hate them.

    ReplyDelete
  26. YES. "Can I ask you a question?" YOU JUST DID.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Kate Hudson lol! i think I get it though but I 50% like her. Zits along the lips are the worst... so painful!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm totally guilty of the "can I ask you a question" thing...sorry!

    I hate people who drive in the left hand lane and back traffic up, if you aren't going to pass, get over! Zits, especially hormonal ones on my chin/neck....you can't do shit about those effers. Coworkers who are aholes b/c they are miserable and must bring everyone down with them. In laws....seriously this list could go on for days.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Cannot stand complainers who refuse to do anything to change the situation. That is my #1 pet peeve of LIFE! Nailed it, friend! Also--- all the sexy costumes are so ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Zits anywhere suck. People who complain but don't do anything about it make me rage. And those asses at the train station who literally follow the doors as the train slows down and then cut you off JUST so they can get a seat for the 5 min to the next stop- I literally want to throat punch them.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I nodded my head to pretty much all of these. I *almost* ranted about sexy Halloween costumes on my blog the other day, but changed my mind. I think I've already beat the "I Hate Halloween" horse to death. Halloween in general is annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  32. People in line in front of me at the supermarket. Anyone. I just start to f-ing hate them for no reason - judging their grocery choices, their clothes, the order in which they put things on the register belt, their hair - you name it. How dare they be in front of me. BTW, are men allowed to post here? :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. haha, men are totally welcome to post here! If I'm in an impatient mood (wait, that's always), I also tend to think the person in front of me is doing everything wrong - even just standing there wrong.

  33. When someone calls you and you don't answer so they redial a hundred times, unless it's an emergency I get ragey ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I don't think I've ever not been able to get into my hotel room at check in-time. That would piss me off too. I can't handle the people that tweet/post "I'm so tired." Well, get offline and GO TO BED! What is anyone ever supposed to say to that?

    ReplyDelete
  35. oh the can I ask you a question annoys me, though I am sure I do it. Zits near my nose make me so mad, and also cry. No fair. Poor Kate Hudson. I love Goldie. Things that annoy me... people who are late. So effing rude. My time is just as valuable as yours!

    ReplyDelete
  36. People who say "I'm sorry to interrupt, but..." because I think they're not sorry. If you desperately need to poke into a meeting or handwave at me while I'm on the phone, just own it with a "pardon me."

    Halloween trick-or-treating in my town is 2-6pm. I don't have kids, but I don't get home until 5:30. I haven't given treats out in years and it makes me sad. Also, sucks to be a working parent in this town! Time to burn a vacation day or your kids will be sad.

    Elf on the Shelf. Apparently Santa, elves, and flying reindeer aren't magical enough for today's children. It also goes against the Rankin-Bass "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" canon, where Santa keeps track via Winter Warlock's crystal snowball.

  37. can i ask you a question totally annoys me .. or "I have a question" if someone says that to me i typically tell them well i have an answer - lets see if they match
    people who don't use their turn signals - annoy the crap out of me

    ReplyDelete
  38. I was with you until Kate Hudson, ha.

    I HATE the "slutty, sexy" Halloween costume thing. I always make it a point to dress up as something that involves a comfortable costume (penguin, Super Mario, and a duck have been my favorites in recent memory) because I dress in uncomfortable things every other night of the year I go out. OF COURSE I'm gonna take the chance to wear tenny bops and a sweatshirt out and for that to be considered totally appropriate!

    -Heather
    I do what I want.

  39. I did the whole slutty costume thing in college and (a) my regular party clothes were probably sluttier, sorry mom and (b) it was goddamn cold. It was Iowa, what was I thinking? Now I'm like... which costume will allow me to wear pants or footie pajamas? Ok that wins. (Sanderson sisters this year - sleeves, floor length skirts, boots. Win!)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I actually like Kate Hudson. I kind of want to be her (look like her? I don't know). And I embrace my time doing nothing so will never say that I am bored. As you said, plenty to do if I want to do something.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My dogs have smelly breath. I also don't like their smell on my couch's blanket and pillows. But they're cute, so it's ok ;).

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have a zit on the side of my nose and it's driving me batty. Bored has never been in my vocabulary, and I totally agree.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Bahahahahah... Kate Hudson! I feel the same way about Kristen Dunst.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I don't understand the bored thing either, I've always been able to self entertain. It's like those who say if they won the lottery they would just keep going to work, because they would be bored...that shows a lack of imagination :) I think that is one thing the internet has completely eliminated is boredom because you can always learn something new, read something new, watch something cute or funny...it's limitless.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That picture of Geege (or is it Gus?) is the bomb. Speaking of zits, I had a pimple on my tongue over the weekend that annoyed the shit out of me.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ugh zits are the worst - when I do get them it is right along my lip line. Also, when it comes to the "can I ask you a question?" my favorite answer is "you just did".
