I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

Top 10 Things that Bug the Crap out of Me

Okay Miss Renee from Of Lemons and Honey! Too many smiles and good-intentioned blog posts from the New Year have brought out the snarky, sour-lemon side of you. I can't leave you out there alone, so here's my list of things that bug the crap out of me!

1. Speaking of bugs, I despise a litterbug!

2. I hate it when somebody pees on the toilet seat and walks away. What makes them think I want to clean up their mess...that is assuming I saw it before I sat in it!

3. People who move to the country then complain about the deer, dogs, chickens that have always been in the country.

4. Telemarketers, especailly at dinnertime!

5. People lacking a sense of humor and the ability to smile!

6. Whiners! If you are older than 3, you are too old to whine. If you're older than 40, you should get a spanking when you whine. (NOTE: my list of 10 things that bug me does not count as whining!)

7. Places that only serve Pepsi products. I'm a Diet Coke girl!

8. Parents who allow their children to behave badly.

9. People who pass me on the highway, only to pull in front of me and slow down. Or even worse...pull up beside a car and go the same speed, hence blocking the entire highway!

10. When stupid blogger decides my photos should be seen sideways instead of the way I load them!

Thanks to google images for the pictures used in this post! Isn't it amazing their photos never upload sideways!

What bugs the crap out of you?

People who don't use their turn signals. People who don't pull over when a funeral comes by. People who ASSUME you're a racist because you live in the South. People who ASSUME you're a right-winger because you live in the South. People who think it's perfectly ok to be a racist right-winger because they live in the South. People who think Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi is actually BETTER than Coke Zero! Are you SERIOUS?!
