I got the idea for this post from a past writers workshop and I knew when I saw it that I had to write about it. The prompt is: Something that frustrates you. I knew I had to write about it because I find myself getting frustrated easily lately and I figured this might help me get the things off my chest and maybe even get over some of them. Anyway here goes the list of things that are currently frustrating me.
Idiot drivers who refuse to use their blinkers before they change lanes. I also am so tired of people cutting me off and then getting pissed off at me when I honk at them. I guess I should just be okay with getting cut off and almost getting in a wreck. I will try and remember that next time.
I answer the phones at work and I am so frustrated with people I work with not answering their calls and also never returning their voicemails. I am so tired of getting bitched at by the customers who get pissed off because they are never getting calls back. I understand the customers being pissed off but it isn’t my problem and I can’t make anyone answer their calls and/or listen to their voicemails.
I am frustrated that I can’t figure out how to make Elinore stopping pooping outside of the litter box. I wish I knew what caused her to start doing this let alone how in the hell I am going to make her stop doing this. If you have any suggestions please let me because we are all at our wits end with her.
I am super frustrated with my health and not knowing what is going on. I hate having Multiple Sclerosis because you never know what is going to happen and what the coming day will bring. I am so tired of not knowing what is going to happen or not knowing what is really going on because there is no way to really know.
Those are a few of things that I am frustrated about right now. I know there are more things but those are top 4 things that have me super frustrated right now.
Do you have any advice on how to deal with any of these? What are you frustrated about right now?
I am back with another edition of Things That Drive Me Insane and as promised this one is about idiot drivers. I swear the drivers get worse every day. So in this post I am going to talk about motorcycles. My brother has a motorcycle so I have listened to him talk about how people have almost killed him and I have almost killed a few of them myself when they have decided to cut me off and/or just drive like total idiots.
I know that at times it is hard to see people who are riding motorcycles but I do my best to watch for them because if I was riding a bike I would want someone to do that for me. I am so tired of people on motorcycles thinking that they can drive between the lanes or even go on the shoulder to get around traffic. One guy went down the shoulder instead of waiting like the rest of us to merge onto the freeway. I have to say though that the thing I “love” the most that some of them do is to cut me off and then the next second they are cutting someone else off because they feel the need to go 100 MPH down the road.
Now onto the idiots in the cars who don’t pay attention and watch for people who are on motorcycles or who are even in other cars. I am so tired of other drivers talking on their phones or reading books. Although I think the thing that pisses me off the most is when I almost get killed by a cop because he is messing around on his laptop and or talking on his damn phone.
Wow this post got really off track. Anyways lets get back to idiot drivers who don’t pay attention to others. I wish everyone would just pay attention to driving and not everything but driving! Anyway that is all for this post.
I haven’t written one of these posts in a few months and it is time for another one. The very first one of these posts I wrote was about idiot drivers and this is going to be part 2 because I have seen some real winners lately. Usually once it warms up here the drivers get better but this year they have gotten 10 times worse. I am not sure where to even start with this post because there are so many things that are driving me insane lately.
I am going to start with the most shocking one first because well I am still floored by it. I was on my way to work in the morning and I saw a woman curling her hair with a curling iron as she was driving. Even as I am writing this I am still in shock and the best part was that I then saw her the next week doing the same thing!
Who in the hell does that while they are driving???? The longer I think about this the more crazy it gets because in order for her to able to do that she had to get a power inverter. Which shows that she “thought” through this idea. I told one of the guys I work with about it and he brought up the point what will happen when she drops the hot curling iron because we all know that when you drop something hot while driving it always seems to end up in your crotch.
The next thing that is driving me insane is when people decide to make their own damn lanes while they are driving. I can’t even count how many times I have seen this in the past week alone. I was looking back that the first post I did about idiot drivers and this was the comment that was left on that post: (this is only part of the comment)
…my personal favorite is when there’s heavy traffic and someone doesnt’ want to wait anymore on the freeway. So they just pull into the shoulder and drive along at 55 mph or so like it’s their own personal lane. Of course, one day they’re gonna plow into someone who’s stuck there with a flat, or pop their own tire on the nails and junk in that lane… idiots.
I can’t wait to watch some idiot who makes their own lane get in a major accident because they think they can do whatever they want. It would also be great see them plow into a cop car that has someone pulled over. I get so pissed off when I am stuck in traffic and I watch people making their own lanes and then having to get in front of me. I want to yell at the and tell them to get in line. I mean I learned in elementary school get in line and “no butting” in. I have noticed though that people riding motorcycles are probably the worst when it comes to making their own lane and thinking them can do whatever they want.
I was going to write about one other thing but I think I am going to save that until next time so there will be a part 3 of idiot drivers. Who knew I could find so many things that people do while driving that would bug the hell out of me. I guess it comes with driving to and from work for almost 6 years.
I am thinking about starting a new post series about things that drive me insane. I will just post one when something people have done drive me crazy. Today I want to write about idiot drivers. As most of you know I live in Utah and the past few months it has been snowing quite a bit which always makes for interesting drives to and from work. What drives me insane is it is like people forget from one day to the next how to drive in the snow. I also love the idiots that drive big trucks or SUV’s that think they can drive 100 MPH when it is snowing and the roads are icy. It never fails that I see them a little farther down in an accident and I just laugh at them.
You would think after driving in the snow for a few days that people would remember to slow down and not follow so closely but they still drive like total idiots and then always seem to act confused when they get in accidents. I have driven to the job I have now for 6 winters and lets just say that the drivers seem to get worse every year. I have started leaving my house super early because I don’t want to deal with the idiot drivers anymore than I have too.
