Venting to the World

Daily irritants

Everyone has those constant irritants that make our day worse.  Here are some of them:

1. Slow drivers. Those people who apparently love to spend time in traffic…

2. Products that need scissors to open.

3. Products with instructions in very fine print (the population is aging!).

4. Loud talk show audiences screaming: they drive me nuts.

5. Ads that are much louder than the show you are watching.

6) Auto-correct on the iPhone when you are typing in another language.

7. People that write to you in caps.

8. People who send you corny chain emails in PowerPoint.

9. People talking loudly in a foreign language in a public space (I have been guilty of this once or twice..).

10. Medical bills sent sometimes 6 months after an appointment and you simply don’t remember.

11. Drivers who don’t signal.

12. Needing reading glasses for everything, and no laser surgery for that yetreading_glass_1.

13. Parents who take all their young kids (and strollers) to the mall on a busy day

More to come..patience is not my strongest virtue 🙂

  1. The auto-correct on the iPhone is SO irritating!! I am american but my boyfriend is Brazilian and only speaks Portuguese. I always send him little messages reminding him that I love him and miss him… every time I type “Te amo” it gets changed to “Tê amo” not a big deal… yet still irritating.

    • This one drives me nuts: Át. Whenever I am typing the preposition at.
