Things that are the Devil in Disguise

Strapless bras

Protesters from Westboro Baptist Church

Self-sabotaging behavior
Fireball

That itch on your back that you can't reach no matter how you approach it

McDonald's non-decaying food

The comments section of Internet articles

Funny memes you're dying to share that have grammatical errors or misspellings

Oil stains on clothes that you only see post-wash

People who say "just kidding" after they realize everyone is pissed off at them

Shoes that rub your pinky toes

Ignorance

Black ice

Personal space invaders

Under the skin hurty zits

The snooze button

Those who play things with sound from phones or tablets in public spaces without using headphones

Carts with shitty wheels 

Amazing shows that are available to binge watch, sucking up any free time

Tangled necklaces 

What are some of your devils in disguise?

  1. Strapless bras are the making of the devil! They fool me all the time!
    People that watch things without headphones in public spaces suck. I hate that so much.
    Under the skin zits....ugh.

  2. Ughhh to oil stains, painful zits, and everything else on that list! Also, pets that wake you up in those last few precious moments of sleep before the alarm goes off anyway (this may or may not have happened just this morning), and idiots who pay more attention to their phones while driving than they do to the driving itself.

  3. People who say they care about kids but oppose evaluations/metrics/anything that measures effectiveness

    The auxiliary cord that allows my husband to play YouTube lectures at full volume

    Sheets that look soft but are actually scratchy

  4. Amen to the under skin hurty zits! I get them in and around my nose. And, to add insult to injury, sometimes they make nose really red, so I look like Rudolph! When this happens, I'm like, "Shoot me now!"

    Here are some of mine: 1) Hotel neighbors who allow their heavy, metal doors to slam closed in lieu of closing them softly during sleeping hours. Rude! 2) Junk mail - real and virtual. 3) People who don't return their shopping carts to the corral and just leave them strewn all over the parking lot. 4) High heels.

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Maisel's picture lol! I immediately thought of Mike Doyle using the pasta spork as a back scratcher! Hypocrisy, heinous crimes on children and innocents, myself for buying chocolate candy I keep eating. The arctic cold ! Bras with no underwire., forget about strapless! TGIF. Love. Your. Momma.

  6. Pretty much all of yours! Plus close-talkers. Any and all political ads. Oh and cat lovers. :) I love that you put Mae's picture on this post. HAHAHA.

  7. I hate when I get sucked into a show and spent all my time binge watching it. I don't know how it happens but it does and before you know it is like 5 hours later.

  8. One more to add: Anyone who think its okay to cut their nails in public and public includes the office.
    Happy Friday!!

  9. Jeans that fit great when you buy them and then stretch and become loose and ill fitting after wearing them for an hour. nothing pisses me off more.

  10. I don't own strapless bras any more. I just refuse to buy anything that I would have to wear one with, and I think (fingers crossed) I'm past my years of being a bridesmaid after at least 11 strapless dresses.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Blows my mind how McDonalds food doesnt change... lots of food does that. SO SCARY.
    I have a family member that is FAMOUS for the 'just kidding' thing & it just goes through me like a hot knife in butter... One day, i'm gonna snap & scream NO YOU'RE NOT!!!!

  12. Itches you can't reach are a major pain in the ass!

    ReplyDelete
  13. When you think you have ice cream in freezer and are super excited to have some, then you find out there is none. lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. YES! And especially this one: "Funny memes you're dying to share that have grammatical errors or misspellings". hahah, so true. And YES to oil stains!!!! Ughhh.

    I also love that your beach image is from the Oregon Coast :) Favorite place.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hahahaha I love how Mae is the cover picture for this!!! I am with you on allllll of these things. Also, Starbucks having a butterscotch frappucino, the sun out bright before an unstable rain causing tornado warnings, lots of jalapenos in your cheese dip.

    ReplyDelete
  16. lol, love all of these. Some of them can be combined, like the Westboro church and ignorance! And the "just kidding" once people are pissed at you. And why do I always seem to get the carts at Target or the grocery store with the wonky wheels? I feel like 90% of the carts have wheels that need rehab haha

    ReplyDelete
  17. Yesssss to all of these! Especially strapless bras, ignorance, tangled necklaces, and McDonalds in general. I also hate when I think I'm going to have a chocolate chip cookie, and you bite into it and come to find out it's raisins... Happy Friday <3

  18. Oh me and my snooze button battle it out every morning. It's the alarm clock that's the devil. LOL @ strapless bras and fireball. So very true!

  19. WBC picketed the JCC I worked at yearrrrs ago. There were like 4 of them on the corner across the street and I'm not even sure what they were objecting to, but they made no splash whatsoever. That was more gratifying for me than it probably should have been—that they made no impact at all.

    Comments sections are where decency and compassion go to die, and I get SO disappointed when I find a good meme that I can't in good conscience share with anyone because of an error.

    Personal space invaders get elbows in the ribcage from me.

    I have a spectacular talent for picking THE worst shopping cart anywhere I go.

    You speak to my soul.

  20. I am sorry but I love Fireball... in small doses. Personal space invaders.... ahhhhh I can not stand that! And a recurring theme for me this week two faced bitches who deliver one backhanded compliment after another and keep on smiling. GTFO.

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  21. This whole list: YES!!! I cannot stand when people do not get the point and keep backing up with you, no.
    I totally get sucked into the comment sections... bad.
    xoxo

  23. Someone actually got into my section of the revolving door behind me the other day. I was speechless. Agree with all of these, particularly the itch you can't get at, the WBC protesters, and black ice. Adding hidden fees, those ridiculously sad pet adoption ads with Sarah McLachlan, not being able to find an available toilet when you really gotta go, and cropdusters.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'd argue that the protesters from Westboro Baptist Church aren't so much in disguise...

    Oil stains are the worst. I've lost some really nice things to oil stains and I'm still bitter about it.

    My devils in disguise include overly long and unkempt fingernails and *shudders* toenails. People who eat smelly food on public transport, especially early in the morning. People who file their nails near me, it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. Come to think of it, I may have a thing about nails?

    ReplyDelete
  25. high heels. Other than that agreed on all accounts!

    ReplyDelete
  26. sweaters that look cute but are itchy as fuck, "fat free" anything that claim to be healther for you but are actually processed to shit.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Gah, that face. :) My face is all broken out like a god damn teenager, it's cute.
    I had some lady that thought she needed all the space in the world, on the train home. Leaning into the arm rest, into me.
    I could go and on. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Cute post d accompanying dog face! Sorry about your fall. Reminded me when I tripped into snow when picking up poo because dogs suddenly pulled on leashes when they say another dog. My "Devils" are socks left on the floor and running out of TP.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oh, those shoes that don't fit quite right and rub that little toe can make a day unbearable can't they?

    ReplyDelete
  30. "Just kidding" is bad, but to me "just sayin'" is so much worse because people say or write it after a rude comment. It's the new, non-southern version of "Bless her heart, but..." I'm a firm believer in biting your tongue if you don't have anything nice to say, but if you want to share your opinion speak up and own it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha YES to so many of these! The comments section of internet articles is one of the absolute worst things for me. Sometimes I have to force myself to get away from the article before I'm tempted to scroll down to the comments section. I immediately regret that I did so once I see the generally horrible, ignorant things people have to say. Sometimes there are a few good or interesting points, but it's usually just a place where people let out any awful thought in their head.

    And, sort of going along with that, Facebook during election season. (Or, really, any time a major world or national news event occurs.) Yikes.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Personal space invaders really are the worst, especially on public transportation. And why do people feel the need to share their music when in public? They should really use headphones!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ohhh. This post got to the core of what bothers me in life!

  34. Bahahaha! Fireball. I love it.
    Under the skin hurty zits are the actual WORST. And I almost always try to pop them. Then they just make me look like a meth head with fucking sores.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I always, ALWAYS, pick the cart with the goofy wheel. Depending on my mood I'll either go back and switch it, or just stick it out. And black ice, yes. I am so ready for spring when I won't have to worry about black ice every morning.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I can't do comments sections on news stories anymore, I just get mad at the ignorance that abounds there.

    Personal space invaders, ugh. I dealt with one of those at Lego Kidsfest this weekend, her voice was annoying too so it was extra bad.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Strapless bras never stay up, so useless. People who talk endlessly are a big pet peeve of mine, I need quiet time.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm right there with you on everything on this list. Especially the Westboro Baptist crazies! I've even sent them emails before ha! They make my blood boil!
    And the people without headphones drive me nuts! People come in and walk around in the video store like that all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  39. another accomplished weekend for you. You always get so much done!! I am not the biggest fan of giving myself my own pedicures either but do it during the cold weather months. Those chicken wings look delicious! And staredowns with pets are always a good way to pass the time.

    ReplyDelete
  40. bahahaha @ Under the skin hurty zits. so true. and yes to all the other things. stains and holes in general that you don't see until you are wearing the item, super annoying. i stay away from comments on articles and the like, KC loves them, i swear he likes to make himself mad and convinced the world is full of idiots. i'm like yeah, i know that, no need to rub it in my face.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have to disagree with you on fireball...mix it with some rumchata for a cinnamon toast crunch shot/delight in your mouth!

    Zits under the skin are for sure the devil.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Why yes . . . to all the above. I have been writing down things that bug the shit out of me and janky carts got written down today. But all the others could certainly be on my list. BTW - just getting to some blog reading catch up . . . thus my comments 5 days late! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  43. ingrown hairs plus all of the above lol

  44. under the skin hurty zits yes!
