You Need A Timeout!!!!


This week for the writers workshop I am going to write about number six which is: List 8 people, places, or things you’d like to give a timeout too.  I chose this one because it made me smile and I wish that I could put people in my life in time out.  There are quite a few things that I want to put in time out, so let’s just get on the list.

  1. The very first thing on this list has to be the people who have been working on getting our emails working at work.  We are at a week down, and there still is no end in sight.  I get that is can be hard at times but over a week just seems like someone isn’t doing their job.  I also can’t even imagine how much work and money we are losing because we aren’t receiving any emails. (They are up and working now.  I wrote this a few days ago and they weren’t working yet.)
  2. The next thing that needs a time out is the crazy spring weather in Utah.  It will go from freezing to 80 degrees and then back to freezing over two or three days.
  3. Stupid drivers are the next people that need a timeout.  I have had to commute for years now, and I have seen some crazy things like one lady curling her hair.  I want them all to be in timeout so that we make it to work safely without any stress.
  4. The next things that need a time out are the stupid birds that insist on eating the cat food that I put out for my stray cats at work.  It makes me so mad to see the birds eating all of the food that I bring for the cats so most of the day I leave the food inside until I see a cat waiting for it.
  5. The next people that need a time out is most of the men in my family because they just get on my nerves, and I would love to make them sit in the corner.
  6. Next, up I wish I could put my health insurance in time out because it sucks and doesn’t cover anything, so I am going to be upside down in medical debt again.
  7. I also would love to put some of the women that I work with in time out.  I have worked with the same group of men for almost years, and we were all hired by another company in January.  The new business has a ton of women working for them, and we all know that women tend to have drama, so I want to put them all in time out because I have no patience for drama or high school games.
  8. The very last thing that I would love to put in time out is Google.  I have a love-hate relationship with Google, so I want to put them in time out because I can.

Those are the eight things and people who need a time out.  I am sure I will think of more once this post is live so maybe I will make this post into a series of posts in the future.

What or who do you think needs a time out?

Here are all the other prompts for this week in case you want to pick one and join in:

1. Throwback Thursday: Choose a photo from a previous May and write a poem or a blog post.
2. You are given a part to act in a show you watch. Which show would you choose?
3. Share a lesson you learned from your Mother that still sticks with you to this day.
4. Write a blog post inspired by the word: red.
5. Talk about your favorite social media platform and why you love it so much.
6. List eight people, places, or things you’d like to give a timeout to.

  2. I’m with you on putting health insurance in time out … I’ve spent thousands of dollars on it and yet am afraid to use it.

    Also, it sounds like Utah weather is like Illinois weather even though we are thousands of miles apart.

  3. A great list! I laughed at the woman curling her hair while driving and I totally agree with you on having female managers at work. It was like being in high school!

  4. I would say you definitely have plenty to feel frustrated with. Timeouts for everyone!
