Thursday Thoughts on Blast: shit that annoys me

1. Mostly empty things being returned to the refrigerator.

2. People who need constant validation, petting, admiration, and approval. If you're confident in yourself, your voice, and your image, you don't need other people to tell you what you're doing is okay.

3. Typing u instead of you. It's two extra letters, lazy people. Two!

4. The hypocritical Duggars. Perhaps worry about the pedophile in your own house before you campaign against LGBT people as predators of children.

5. Joint facebook accounts. Why?

6. People who get butthurt when people disagree with them online. First, if you need everyone to think exactly like you, perhaps you should move to Stepford. That's really weird and weak - like you can't stand to be around people with opinions different from those you cooked up in your fragile little brain. Second, if you're going to lose your shit when you're challenged on something, don't post it online. You can control what you post, but you cannot control the attention you receive when you invite others to look over your business, which is what you're doing when you make yourself so purposefully public. Social media 101, people.
7. Bae and on fleek. Can those terms go away now? Also ride or die...what does that even mean? And dranks. Drinks are what you're having. Drank is the past tense of drink. Dranks are not a thing. Hashtag crotchety old lady.

8. Blogs and websites that don't have their email addresses accessible. Don't make it hard for people to contact you.

9. White looking iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts. It's like DD is boycotting its own delicious iced coffee by leaving it out of iced coffee orders. I never get this because I am high maintenance and I hand it right back, but when I see it in the hands of others I'm annoyed by it like it's my own.

10. Ecard of the week fits in here - make sure it's the words and tone you'd use to someone's face before you type it in a comment online.

What's annoying you?

    1. Love Ragerex :)

  2. Ughhh to joint FB accounts. Nothing says "I have lost my total sense of self like" JohnAndJane Doe.

  3. Empty things in fridges give me such rage. Especially when the container is GIANT and takes up half the fridge space. If it's so important to you to save that smear of sauce, then please put it in an appropriately sized receptacle.

  4. #4 I have no words!!! So not right!!! I actually put things back that are almost done and it so annoys my husband - I seriously need to stop now!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. Agree. Amen. Getting my hair did--puts me over the edge. Empty boxes back in cabinets. Socks with no partners. Riding slow in the passing lane-especially when texting. Really!!!! Good read.
    Love, your Momma

  6. Yes to all of the things!! Well, I don't go to DD but I can see the annoyance. When I saw the first picture I honestly thought it was going to be about things not getting rinsed out because that should NEVER go back in the fridge. Finish the last 1/4 bite or toss that shit.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Haha big internet balls! Seriously... keep hiding behind that screen! And all the rage of empty containers being put back in the fridge.. ughhh!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Slow clap!! Love and agree with all of these. Bae and Fleek need to go away. They are not words! The Duggars can go to hell.

  9. i'm so not with it - i have never heard of "bae" or "on fleek" until now and had to google that shit. it's lame and stupid and not even sure how i would use that in a sentence/prhase.

    another thing that annoys me: joint email. why? email is personal, just like mail. i dont want to email you because your spouse might be reading it!

    1. Oooh but Kathy, the convenience of sharing an email account with your bae that you use for household things (bills, home repair estimates, coupons) is unmatched if you're lazy like me and married to a type A. We both have access, so I'm in the know with what's going on but we both know damn well that I won't actually DO anything with the info. We both have separate, non-shared accounts too. Some might say our system is on fleek but others may call it ratchet :P

      Delete
  10. I'm not good with modern lingo, so I've never even heard of fleek. A teenager had to explain rachet to me after I thought she meant the tool. I'm guilty of K but u/r/other letters for whole words I can't stand. Sometimes I do say things like "gettin' my hairs did" on purpose because it's such bad grammar and I also say boyfran instead of boyfriend as a jab at my step-sister who ALWAYS says boyfran instead of boyfriend. It brings me and my sister all the laughs. I'm a horrible person, I accept this. :)
    AND the fridge thing.. YESSSSSS. I also despite it when coworkers leave their shit in the fridge for eons at a time. Get your shit together people!

  11. The Duggar mess. The best headline I saw was "Josh didn't make a mistake... He committed a crime". I'm grumpy about people saying the only people victimizing those girls are the people talking about this today... REALLY?! In what Pollyanna universe are YOU living in?! And even if they SAY they are fine, it's because we've effectively silenced them for years and now with these ridiculous conversations of how this was a "mistake" or just something that happened... like falling off a bike or tripping on the stairs!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I am so with you with Bae and On fleek. What the blood hell? I never thought I was that out of touch until this past year when these crazy terms started coming into play. I was doing a Jamberry party a few weeks ago, and one of the guests was a teenager. I actually had to ask her what those words meant. And I want to throttle my teenage cousin every time she uses them. I honestly keep asking myself What Would Shakespeare Say, since he created hundreds of the words we use now.

  13. nothing says our marriage is great than joint fb accounts! ha. not even gonna get started on the duggars. have you ever read about their teachings or religion? makes me shudder and shake my head. my heart breaks for those girls the most.

    ReplyDelete
  14. i despise when people use text speak, ESPECIALLY in books. Like, you can 'show' that you are texting another way, you don't need to write 'c u @ 4' RAGE.
    i still don't get what on fleek means and i am totally okay with that. young people. ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I actually can't stand FB in general lately because people in my family feel like this is the only way to share news. It's so annoying. We are family, we can't call each other anymore?? It's not a foreign concept. I agree with the bae and fleek...I'm not even sure what they both mean. This whole situation with the Duggar's is just disgusting. Every time I hear another sponsor is pulling ads from their show it makes me happy. Keep them off TV.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Constant "petting" lol. Like the validation the dogs needs.
    I hate to tell you, but there's a lot of that going on in elementary schools. I spend half my time breaking kids of the "VALIDATE ME!" habit. Society is only going to get worse given the current trends.

    I hate it when blogs don't have a way to follow them. Like, I don't want to bookmark you. I want to follow you on Bloglovin so I remember to read your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  17. First the T-Rex - I laughed OUT LOUD. Girllll you crazy. LOVE IT

    My father will put 1 slice of cheese back into the cold cut drawer... ONE THIN SLICE OF CHEESE - no meat - I mean seriously, slap that tiny slice on your already MONSTROUS sandwich.

    OH shit, U - or any of the text speak that takes away vowels. I mean, wh cn rd lk ths? <--- drives me INSANE!

    4 & 5 - YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES

    I think I need to make my email more accessible, I swear it's on my blogging to do list. #bloggerfail

    And the ecard - OH MY LAWD YES! My (proverbial) balls are the same size on the internet as they are in real life, and it bugs me when people go on FB and pretend. You know?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I agree with EVERYTHING you wrote, except the DD coffee because I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. The Duggars...we've been talking about this and you read my rant so you know how I feel about them. Scott puts containers like that back in the fridge constantly and it makes me want to harm him. Joint FB accounts? WHY???

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just saw a post last week on #2 that made me nuts. I guess it was a mix of 2 and 6 but it was basically defending her entire life and choices and it's like dude... if you were that confident in the choices you make, you'd hardly be writing a blog post about why the anonymous internet meanies are so wrong.
    The Duggars are so disgusting, I don't even have words.
    I'm so picky on my DD coffee, thanks to you :) I always tell them 'almost black, like my soul' and then they make it perfect. Works every time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Empty containers are annoying but nothing is worse to me then every cabinet and silverware drawer left open in the kitchen...I ask him "Did a poltergeist run through here while I was in the bathroom? " What is that about? I Also can not stand when people say "It look-ded like rain" ...noooooo boo boo it looked like rain earlier but it is never going to look-ded like anything because that is not a word! Oh and using the word is instead of are. "You is my friend" what? I'm contemplating why we are friends because you obviously never listen to me-I speak correctly. That is such a pet peeve because I am working on not correcting people. #thestruggleisreal

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes to Steph's comment above...I bet you read the post she is referring to also.

    U kills me, especially in emails from students. You would be appalled at the shit that I get. I was just bitching to John last night that I think people of the world have legitimately forgotten (or don't know) that "til" is not a word and that it is actually "UNTIL." This is everywhere...books, social media, websites. What the fuck people.

    The Duggars are ridiculous. I am honestly not at all surprised by this. I don't necessarily think they are bad people (although this shit makes me wonder...) but certainly are not the upstanding Christian superior family they make themselves out to be either. I mean, come on. They have monetized everything their family does, I would love to know how much they are worth, and everything they do it seems is for media attention.

    Random question: I am pretty sure I took the recommendation for the Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner from one of your posts. I love it, but what the hell do you do when the point is down? Is it self-sharpening? Do I sharpen? I am so confused and feel really dumb for this.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Every time I hear someone use the word "bae" I just want to punch them and tell them that they're comparing their love of the month (because those are the only assholes who appear to use that word) with poop.

    Joint FB accounts show the insecurity of one or both of the parties involved, and just how "whipped" the other one is.

    That ecard is hilarious and absolutely true. Just because no one can see you behind your monitor doesn't mean you should lose your humanity.

    ReplyDelete
  23. you hit the nail on the head. I agree with all of this. The Duggars, YOU. come on. In addition to empty fridge containers, I hate when people pretend to reseal stuff, like a pringles can. Remove the paper on the top!

    ReplyDelete
  24. SO many of these are horrible. Fleek? Who the hell came up with that? Every time I hear somebody say it I want to ask them if they realize how dumb they sound. I feel like a lot of these overlap - like it's those joint FB accounts that start spewing about their love of the hypocritical Duggars and start being offended when anyone disagrees. I hate FB that's one of my irritations can you tell?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hahahahahahhaha that ecard. Just yes!!! And the Austin Powers meme too! I agree with every last one of these. Except maybe the DD coffee because I do like a little coffee in my cream. But my god what is with all the fleek and Bae and shit. I dont even know what Bae is. Stop making up words or I will drop your drank on your head! Also YAAASSS. I cant fucking stand that and want to throat punch everyone who types it. But apparently, now that I shared that...people will go crazy on me because they like it and I am not allowed to have an opinion. Slow clapping U over here. YOU. I am having such a hard time leaving the "u."

  26. #5: WHHHHHHYYYYY. I know three couples who got a joint account when they got married and got rid of their own accounts. I think that's the weirdest ish I've ever heard of. I know when you get married you become a unit but for the love, I think you can have your own identity online.

    #4: Josh has always seemed schwarmy. I enjoyed their show because I think 100% opposite of them in every situation so it was interesting to witness how they lived their lives. However, it's hilarious (not really when you think of the damage being done) how Josh preaches values so heavily when he's doing that to his own sisters. I keep trying to put in my mind that he was a minor. However, at 14-15 it's not excusable under that notion to molest your GD sisters... ai-yi-yi. It just proves to me that people who so heavily preach against gay marriage, etc. ALWAYS have a sordid past.

    #7: I like 'on fleek', I think it's pretty funny after watching where it originated from.

    As far as opinions, you're really good at voicing yours while welcoming opposite views for discourse even if you don't agree with those views. I always get that impression from your blog. I mean ... I'd go so far as to say your opinion skills are on fleek. :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm so damn confused about on fleek. I don't get it and I don't care to get it. Also, I got told by a 12 year old this week that I'm too old for Instagram and that I barely get any likes. Silly youth.

  28. Joint FB accounts?!?! That's a thing? Weird!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Joint FB accounts are real weird. I'm also not really a fan of the folks on IG, etc. with the "JoesWifey" or "MrsJoeJohnson" user name. You don't have a name or identity anymore?!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Joint FB accounts?! Never even knew this was a thing! Is this something married people do?! Also yes to the 'u'. Dislike. Looks like I'm texting with a 6th grader.
    Things that annoy me: someone getting in front of me in the '10 items or less' line at the grocery store who CLEARLY has about 27 things in their cart. Also, this current humidity situation with my hair. Ahhhhh!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The Duggars infuriate me because they use a "buddy system". Each sibling helps to raise a younger sibling. They spend their childhood being parents, then get married and become parents almost right away. Ugh. They have no time to be kids or enjoy an adult relationship without kids.

    We actually shared a Facebook account in the past, because we knew 95% of the same people and it made sense to only post pictures, updates, etc. once. But now we both hate Facebook. Husband changed it to his name only and he just uses it to play games.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Totally agree with the joint FB accounts... I don't understand. Why can't you be your own person? It's like when people combine names in a couple- just be your own person. You were you before you met whoever you're with- and you survived. Gah. Also, pet FB accounts. What is the point??

    Today's annoyance is coworkers who have phone calls on speakerphone and don't shut their damn doors. I have no interest in hearing your entire conversation, and yet I am forced to, because I don't have a door. At least I brought my headphones in today.

  33. Pretty sure that I could pin this one to my "favorite post" by Steph! Seriously.. I agree with everything. Each time I read another number, I hear myself yelling "Hell yeah!".

  34. Haha loved everything about this!! My husband is the worst about #1, especially when it comes to drinks. There will be three bottles of juice in the fridge, all with one sip left! And yes yes yes to bae and on fleek - I honestly don't even know what either of them mean but I'd like it to stop.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love this post! My husband is the worst, especially when it comes to our drinks. He loves anything and everything about iced tea, so we keep a steady supply on hand however because he knows he drinks it more than me, he'll leave me just enough to have a sip in the bottom of the holder. Men!

    Stopping by from Stuff -n- Things!

  36. Lmao. Your husband deserves at the very least a good shaking for putting that container in the fridge. Jeff does that! When we were drinking pop, he'd leave the empty cardboard cases in the fridge and I'd always ask him "wtf are you chilling cardboard for, bro?" Lol

  37. My top on your list include Joint FB Accounts (hello trust issues) and number 10 about being a bad ass online.

  38. Oh yes. To so many of these! Big internet balls...that made me laugh! I'm completely with you on the mostly empty things being put back into the fridge. It happens ALL THE TIME at work (I nanny) and I'm like really? REALLY? ha.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Spot on, Steph! I have crossed that invisible line to old age...I have NO IDEA about #7, lol. I have to go google it. Seriously.

    But thanks for the laugh...you are so right.

  40. I am sorry, the Duggars have always given me the creeps. Freaks and now we know an awful truth about them... ugh. Shame on them. I do say dranks but only because I live in the south and make fun of the native accent. My 16 year old and her friends use Bae all the time, sixteen year olds... everyone else can stop it.

  44. When we had our au pair, my husband hated that almost empty snack boxes/bags were returned to the pantry. I hate when empty bags are left on the couch or kitchen table by my hubby, LOL. I also don't like people who need constant validation. The Duggars. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I hate "dranks" so, so much! I disregard the rest if it's coming from people younger than me. I remember my mom getting so irritated when we said "not" and "my bad" as kids. Parents just don't understand. 30+ year olds saying "on fleek," and not in an ironic way, pains me. Be an adult!

    I hate the Duggars. I keep tweeting and then deleting because I just don't want to go there. I can't believe everything that's coming out! I already didn't like them, but now see they are truly disturbed. I want to know more about the Oprah thing though!

  46. On fleek seriously makes my skin crawl. So does bae, now that I think about it. And also, since it's rhymes, "cray."

    ReplyDelete
  47. "Bae" and "on flee" need to disappear. NOW!! particularly on fleek. Empty containers in the fridge drive me nuts but I do it sometimes when I know I'm not going to wash dishes anytime soon. Sigh. I don't mind typing "u" but "k" drives me absolutely batty. Oh hell couldn't you add the "o" ???

    ReplyDelete
  48. OK, so I'm not going to comment on all of your posts, just know that I'm currently reading through all of them.

    Today my current peeve are the hypocrites who have something to say about Caitlyn Jenner. A friend's wife posted an article on how disgusting Caitlyn is for having body altering surgery and pumping chemicals into her body to change the way she looks. Mind this, this is the same woman (friend's wife) who has undergone a tummy tuck, lipo, breast impants, microderm peels, and 4 times a year botox. She also has 3 kids, 2 baby daddy's, neither of which is her husband. And although her husband is a good friend, he shares the same opinions as his lovely wife, and injects himself with steroids in order to... gasp! alter his appearance.
    I don't judge either of them for the choices they make... I judge them for how fucking hypocritical they are.

  49. Love this post :) I can't even get started on the Duggars, I've never liked them and the whole thing makes me sick. It's just another example of why I can't get behind organized religion, too many people hide gross/evil things behind it. I have never heard bae or fleek either, but I've basically embraced my old lady status and keep up with what all the kids are doing these days :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Girlllllll I hate bae and on fleek!! I wrote a whole blog post bitching about it. And omfg if you're putting your opinions on the Internet, people are bound to disagree. Like you said everyone needs validation these days and it's so freaking annoying!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Bahaha that meme is priceless. BAE and fleek might be the two most annoying words I've every come across. I know we've all been through slang phases, but we used actual words and not made up shit that makes NO sense. I tend to expect people to disagree with my opinion, so I usually just don't post them. I am very capable of discussing politics and other hot button topics face to face with people that I value their opinion even if it's different than mine instead of hiding behind a computer like some of the nitwits out there on the interwebs.

  52. I can't staaaaand when blogs have hard to find e-mail addresses. Usually it's not a big deal, but, when they're "no reply" and you have to go searching, it's a real pain in the ass. The worst are the ones that don't list their e-mail, but instead have a "contact" form. No way they're going to remember what you're replying to that way.
