Random things that bug you....

I'm pretty introverted when I'm not working. I really, really, dislike overly chatty checkers. I'm good with the basic pleasantries "How are you? Find everything all right?", but I'm not happy with you wanting to know the details of how my weekend is going and asking the history of the items I'm buying. Click here to enlarge

I wish I could buy every.single.thing. online.

I know exactly which checkers to avoid at our grocery for the exact same reasons.

I'm kind of over the strangers that share all of their health history in an elevator ride. Click here to enlarge

I don't mind overly chatty checkers but I hate it when they make comments about what I'm buying.

This is my signature.

I think I agree with this. I posted before about how now I find myself talking to strangers when inside I'm like irritating myself? Well I'm used to it now but I think having them ask me details about every little thing I'm buying is so annoying. Earlier this week I bought stuff for the baby shower I went to and made cupcakes for:

C: Do you need a gift receipt for this?
Me: No
C: It's just because there is the gift bag and tissue
Me: Thanks
C: Ohhh, are you making a cake?
Me: Cupcakes
C: Even better! I find it so hard not to eat the batter!
Me: yeah
C: Oh I love this book (book for the baby)
Me: It's a good one
C: It's like a classic you know? I think I had it when I was a kid.
Me: (OMG!!)

It's not a feeling, it's a knowing.

Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

I hate when people comment on what I'm buying. WOW YOU SURE DO LIKE BLUEBERRIES! Yes, yes I do. Now shut up. Click here to enlarge

I don't mind a comment about the product as long as it's not about me. "The blueberries are really good this year" is fine. "You sure do like blueberries!" Is annoying.

I don't care about checkers but I feel like a jerk because when I'm getting my hair done, I have like, five minutes worth of conversation and then I just want to shut up and read a book Click here to enlarge

I talk to people all day, every day. I'm all talked out and excited for the opportunity to not talk for awhile.

I look forward to talking to my hairdresser. Click here to enlarge He's great. But we have long swathes of not talking while I read or whatever because it takes a long time to color and cut my hair.

The definition of "futz" was something we had yet to learn,

you know that place where everyone knows your name? that's my morning stop. the bagel shop.

i really would rather no one knows my name. really. but....

one day, i was standing outside, trying to figure out how to get the dog out of the driver's seat, when this guy comes by and just starts yelling, HI, HOW ARE YOU? WHAT A GREAT LOOKING DOG!!!!!!! YOU KNOW I HAD THIS DOG THAT WOULD NEVER GET OUT OF THE DRIVER'S SEAT TOO AND BLAHBLAHBLAHBLAH BLAH.

i had a throbbing headache when i got out of there.

listen, jerk! it's eight oclock in the morning, don't scream for fuck's sake, some people have permanent hangovers.

turns out he was the new owner of my regular bagel and coffee shop. and so guess what, there he is everrrrrrry morning, HI SKANKYPANTS HOW YOU DOING TODAY!! and everyone in the bagel shop turns around. jeebus. my hair's still wet. i may even have my shirt on backwards.

you should've seen him at his xmas party. i was greeted like i'd been in prison for twenty five years. OMG IT'S SKANKYPANTS! BACK FROM SOLITARY. (he'd had a little too much eggnog.)

anyway, that's my annoyed story. i love them, they're very sweet, but the volume, oy.

I need coffee before I can talk to people. Click here to enlarge

Ma'am gets on my nerves, too. But I hate when people call me "Hon", "Sweetie", or "Darling." No. Just, no.

Hearing people chew makes me want to scream. Even if it is with their mouth closed. Click here to enlarge

Reading posts about random things that bug people, and all the replies are by sheeple that are bugged by the same thing as the op. It wasn't a competition or a 'commiserate with me' post.

That's my random thing that bugs me. Go get your own pet peeve.
