Things That Really Tick Me OFF (Episode One)

In no particular order:

Breaking a shoestring on the way out the door.

Coming home from a really long day at work, dragging ass, damn near exhausted, looking forward to a shower, and for whatever reason the family has drained a 50 gallon hot water heater dry.

Locking the keys in the car. Added bonus, needing to call a locksmith.

Realizing you missed your exit on the interstate, and the next exit is like 20 damn miles.


Drivers that hold me hostage by not using turn signals to indicate they are turning in, where I am pulling out from.

Creepers, drivers that never really stop at a stop sign, as I am heading in their direction at 60 mph. Causing me to react by slowing down, because I don’t know what their intentions are. It would help us both if they would just stop.

People who are incapable of admitting they could be wrong about anything.

Getting good and lathered up in the shower, and the power goes out. (wells run on electricity)

Stubbing my toe.

Reality TV.

Drama Queens.

Realizing that I did not create a backup disk, when my laptop malfunctioned, had to format. This after many many times of the computer reminding me to make a backup disk.

AT&T Been paying 40 dollars a month for a phone that can call about 10 miles. Finally gave the finger to At&T, and said bye bye.

Riding mower broke down. Fixed it, flung a rock through the storm door window. No way to replace window, new door 250 bucks. Also same day, flung a rock and busted the drivers side mirror on my truck. Murphy is a S.O.B.

Thinking I can get away with a quick spot weld without the hood, and blind my eyes with an accidental arc.

Seeing people use the word accident. 9 times out of 10, an accident is the result of someone doing something stupid…see above.

Light bulbs that get stuck in the fixtures and break when you try to remove them.

Moles. Little bastards have been terrible this year.

How every time an Arab sneezes, the price of gas goes up, instantly.

How when the cost of oil goes down, the price of gas lags way behind and is slow to drop.

Tobacco. I smoked for many years. Not till I had quit did I realize what a nasty habit tobacco is, in all of its forms.

That will do for now, how about you?

    • At some point, I think I got on a roll there. Had to make myself stop. Guess I am a grumpy old bastard…but have to admit, making that list was fun. Good to see you Makagutu 🙂
