In the last few weeks some of the kitties have shared the the things they love most of all in the world and I've just loved reading about their treasures and the things they love to do.
As I sat down this morning, it was my intention to come up with a similar list of my own, until I realized I was in a stinkin' bad mood. Not just in a little snitch or a little put out, I had the steam coming from my ears and that prickly feeling you get on the back of your neck when you know that if one more thing happens you'll explode in a million bits. It wasn't one particular thing that turned me into this seething state. I realised I'd come across a whole lot of my pet hates all at once and they'd corralled me into a big old pile of grump. With the view that a problem shared is a problem halved, here are the top five things that drive me crazy.
5. The computer telling me I haven't ejected the USB stick properly. Dear Mr Apple, you think I have time to go up and click that extra little box on that extra little drop down menu and then wait a bajillion years while your happy little rainbow circle spins on my screen? No.
4. When small people in this house finish with a cup or a plate and they place it very carefully on the bench above the dishwasher. Oh, it's okay, I know it takes so much more strength and effort to open that dishwasher drawer, the one that's tens of millimetres below where your hand is resting right now and actually put the dish in the place it'll get washed so the magic dishwasher fairy doesn't have to do it
3. People who have the keypad tones switched on on their phone. Because I love sitting in the dentist's office listen to the most tuneless noise in the world while you text your bestie.
2. Paper cuts.
1. When it's Friday 6.30am and you're getting you and your million children ready for work and day job while the washing that you should have done last night is in the machine. And it stops working and a little screen says "I Need Service" and you just know that it's all going to be downhill from here.
I hope you have a much better start to your day! What about you? What are the things in life that have you screaming on the inside :) ?
