How does someone get on your nerves? What does a person do that makes it feel like they are jumping up and down on the very last straw of sanity you have been clutching to?
Here are a few situations that get on my nerve:
Nosy people: Let me clarify. People who are nosy just for the sake of being nosy and to spread gossip.
The people behind you in line at the grocery store who slide up to breathe on your neck as soon as the cashier hands you your receipt but you still need to put your money in your wallet. Hey idiot! You can’t pay until she rings you up anyway! Back up off my butt!
The driver who goes around you cutting you off just so they can turn in front of you making you slam on your brakes. If you want to die -> jump off a cliff. Don’t try to take me with you in a car accident!
My dog licking her butt. How long can you listen to your dog lick her butt before you explode and shout, “Stop licking your butt!!!”? <- about 10 minutes on average in my house.
People who talk during a movie in a movie theater after you have taken out a loan just to afford the ticket to see the movie.
People who drop their kids off at the theatre so the kids can talk during the movie I just took a loan out to afford to watch. Note: I don’t really go to the theatre anymore. Too expensive and I have to deal with people.
When someone calls people back on their phone saying, “Yea, did you call me? I got a call from this number.” If someone from this number called you and didn’t leave a message then they probably didn’t want to talk to you. Why call them back? This woman called me the other day and argued with me saying I (my cell number) had just called her. I said, “Lady, I’ve been at the park for 45 minutes working out with a group of people. They will all tell you I didn’t make a bloody phone call!” WTH!
Wow! Who knew Monday would touch such a nerve in me. Obviously the grocery store and the movie theatre can really get me all riled up. I feel like I could go on forever. What gets on your nerves?
I’ll leave you with a final one I can’t even take credit for. I have no idea who said it but it was going around Facebook. “I hate it when people ask me if I have a bathroom. No, of course, not. We shit in the yard.”
