Aloha Friday - What Annoys You?



Aloha, it's Friday! In Hawaii, Fridays are a day to take it easy and get ready for the weekend. So, I will post something quick and easy for you to respond to....

What annoys you?



Last night, I went to pick up my 16 yr. old son from work. On the way home, he asked if I could run through the drive-thru so he could grab a snack. The car in front of us had 4 people in it - they looked to be in their late teens to early 20's. After they got their food and were pulling away, they suddenly stopped and, right in the drive-thru lane, opened the car door and dumped out some trash. That makes me so mad! I think that's just so disrespectful and ugly!


Here are a few other things that annoy me:

-when drivers do not use turn signals
-when my family leaves lights on all over the house
-when someone does not replace the toilet paper roll
-when someone blocks the aisle at the grocery store and takes forever to move
-rude or poor customer service
-when my computer is being slow

I could keep going, but, I don't want to turn this into a vent-post;o) Have a great weekend! For more Aloha Friday, visit Kailani at An Island Life.

I find it annoying when something doesn't hold the door open for you when going to a store

Teresa said...

Coming from a mom of a teenager, it annoys me when I find clean clothes on the floor rather than being put away! Am I the only mom in the world that has a daughter that does that????

Screaming kids in stores. I would never let my kids do that which is probably why it annoys me so much.

I agree with all of yours! I was just thinking this morning when I drove my daughter to school, how much it irks me when people don't use their directionals when driving!

Also the same about the grocery store, but when you find out the reason they aren't moving is because they are either texting or on the cell phone! That really bugs me.

Hope you have a nice weekend too. :)

Rude people.

Oh my list would be so long. So many things annoy me! You know what really irks me though? When people bump you in the store or somewhere and do not even acknowledge or apologize. I want to just slap them right there on the spot. Maybe one of these times I will, LOL

You know you hit the nail on the head for everyone of them.....did you mention leave the toilet seat up?? that is a biggie for me with all boys in the house!!~ Nothing worse than your 3:00 am potty call and your butt falls in!!~ Cute blog!!~

When my family puts their dirty clothes outside the laundry shoot door. Throw them down the shoot for peet sakes.

Night Owl Mama said...

dirty socks all over the house watching hubby drink directly out of the milk carton. Can't finding the remote. Monthly bills lol!

Thom said...

Drivers that don't pay attention...like talking on their cell, eating, putting on makeup..Have a great Friday :)

Upstatemomof3 said...

Hmmmm...plenty of things!! :) At the moment the thing that annoys me the most is when my husband forgets to put his clothes in the correct laundry hamper - lights, whites or darks. :)

Daniela said...

Oh crap, this could take a while..are you sitting down?

Slow drivers in the left lane.
One size fits all..LIARS.
when boys leave the toilet seat up.
when i can't find my keys.
when i can't find the remote.
Tiger Woods.
John Edwards.
Mark Sanford.
when popcorn kernels get stuck in my teeth.

I think thats all for right now..haha..xoxo

Daniela said...

Ooh,wait..I have another one.

people who text while you are talking to them..ughhhh

Krissi said...

All the things you said are the same things that annoy me too--but I suppose I can add a few more...ummm:
-when I can't find a specific article of clothing for mine or one of my kid's outfits or it isn't washed.
-when I say I really have to go but my sister keeps talking to me on the phone
-when people are two-faced
-when people talk down to you or have an air of entitlement, over confidence or a complete know-it-all attitude
-when you have to wait forever in doctor's office waiting rooms & then you're called in just to wait more in the patient room

It drives me crazy when the driver in front of me takes a half-hour to make a right turn. Just GO already!!

Jennifer-Eighty MPH Mom said...

Oh boy - good question. I could do a whole "vent" comment!

What annoys me is when my kids are kind enough to hold a door open for someone, and that person doesn't even acknowledge it. I think that is incredibly rude. People are so quick to just kids/teens that are "disrespectful" these days, yet can't even bother to say a quick "thanks"

People without common courtesy.

Unfolded, clean laundry in a basket - my husband prefer to do his own because you know, if I turn it pink...blah blah blah. I do everyone else's and there isn't anything pink that wasn't pink when I threw it in the wash. SO, with everything that I have going on, I still manage to get ALL the laundry done, linens, towels, my clothes, the kids clothes - washed, dried and folded. He only does his laundry and never folds them, but plucks an outfil each morning for work and wets it a little and throws it in the dryer - to iron it! (*#@&*&^# ANNOYING!

Thanks. I feel better now.
