So, Cindy posted today about things that drive her crazy. One of which, being the misuse of the word "literally."
She says "Misuse of the word literally... "My heart literally pounded out of my chest."
Really? Your heart actually burst through your ribcage and fell out of your body?
"It literally scared me to death." Really? You're actually really dead?"
She pretty much cracks me up.
So, here are some of the things that literally make my skin crawl. Literally.
(this makes for a much easier quick post before Lorelai wakes up for the day.)
~ Ice chewers. I swear JD's cheeks are thinner than anyone's ever. I can hear him chewing ice from a mile away. Literally.
~ When someone says "for all intensive purposes."
~ When people leave rude anonymous comments.
~ Line cutters. Do we still do this as adults? When I'm in line to get Lorelai into the daycare at the gym, there is always a little lady who just shoves her way in to get her kids in first. One day, I might snap at her.
~ Drivers who don't yield when they're supposed to.
~ When a driver cuts you off in traffic and doesn't even have the decency to give a shout out.
~ When a group of people get together like a hundred times a week and when you are able to finally show up to one of the events, they trash you because you 'aren't ever around.' That definitely makes me want to come next time!
~ When someone finds out you're trying to conceive and they tell you to "be patient."
~ When the cashier gives you your change dollars first, then coins. Ugh! Even worse when they throw the receipt on top of that.
~ When your waitress asks you if you want your change back. "Well, Peaches, I gave you a $100 bill for a $20 check...you tell me!"
~ When someone younger than me calls me "honey."
~ When I go to get a pedicure and the little lady tells me "you no fix your feet for long time?" You know what, shut your mouth and scrub my feet!
(man, Cindy, this is getting me all sorts of fired up!)
~ barking dogs
~ dirty fan blades - seriously? why can't they clean themselves?
~ weight that won't come off
~ skinny girls who talk about their 'fat'
~ visitors who clog the toilet and don't tell you about it (this hasn't ever happened to me, but I'm posting it for someone else, because I know they'd never say anything)
~ fast food workers who act like someone is holding a gun to their head to work there
~ when someone calls me "just a stay-at-home mom"
Okay, so what about you? Leave me some comments about what drives YOU crazy!
