Things that bug me:
  • People who don’t use their turn signals. A little warning before you go haring across my lane to get to the Dairy Queen would be nice, bumblewit!

  • People who go the same speed side-by-side on a highway. The left lane is called the passing lane for a reason, slowpoke, move over already!

  • People who pull out right in front of me and then go 5 miles an hour. What happened to the emergency that caused you to pull out RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME two seconds ago?!
(Sense a theme? I could go on, but I’ll move into non-vehicular peeves now.)
  • Competitive parents. Yes, it’s amazing that little Johnny is only 8 months old and has already written a novel. I’m sure Harvard will care. I do not.

  • People who block exits/aisles. Hello, you are not the only person in the world! Move on or move over! Grrr.

  • The misuse of its and it’s. Its is possessive, like “The rose has lost its petals.” It’s is a contraction, like “It’s a nice day today.” It’s easy to tell them apart: when you see the apostrophe, just think “it is” and you won’t be confused anymore!

  • How everyone says everything sucks all the time. Find another word, people!

  • How I say everything sucks all the time.
So I’m not just a Negative Nellie, here are some things I like:

(Skipping the obvious, like the way my son smells and how soft his tiny hands are and his laugh and his long eyelashes and his tiny teeth and… )

  • When all the lights turn green just as I come up to them.

  • When I don’t think I’ve got something that I’m really craving and Eureka! There’s one left!

  • When a good song I haven’t heard in ages comes on the radio.

  • When I get the scissors at the right angle and just slide them up and they cut like a dream. I especially love this because I can’t cut straight to save my life if I think about it.

  • Free shipping.
