    Well Happy New Year to everyone, time to have a laugh with each other.

    These are some of the things I ABSOLUTELY HATE ANY kind of housework – when the house is finished I'm looking for a cleaner/ironer. FLOSSING MY TEETH – but I have gaps – c'est la vie Spending HOURS on fruitless searches on the Internet – why is it that the key words I use might as well be in Chinese ANY electrical appliance with a standby mode – I worry about fire so I still have to pull the plugs out WEEDING THE GARDEN – has anyone an explanation why the weeds grow faster and stronger than flowers Of course I could go on and on, and on, and on – but I'd like to know what drives you crazy. /tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Looking forward to those replies

    O.K here goes. Just one or two for the moment!

    Packaging up parcels for posting.

    Going to the Post Office to find out the cost of the parcel, and
    then having to bring it home again!

    Spending ages waiting in the queue at the Post Office!

    Spending agest waiting in any queue i.e. banks etc. Ugh!

    Having my legs and coat splashed by cars driving too fast
    through puddles which are near the kerb!

    The phone ringing and waking me up in the morning, and normally
    when I have forgotten to turn it off before going to bed!

    The phone ringing during my favourite soap, or programme!

    That's enough to get on with…..and yes, washing up the dishes!

    Well, I'm almost a sleep <img src='style_emoticons//wacko.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wacko.gif’ /> oh yes,
    I'm sick of shaving my legs <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> and don't even bring up waxing <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    Definitely a good start!!!

    How about this for a suggestion, KK can shave her legs while waiting in line at the Post Office for Jacky <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />

    I have to go for waxing though – I always get an attack of the shakes when I pick up a razor <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> – not a pretty sight!!!!

    Caroline – you are asking what “cheeses me off”? <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    OK – I despise paying taxes on taxes <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    I don't like paying fees (particularly bank fees) and tax for made-up reasons just for revenue raising etc. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    I don't like listening to people whinging about nothing, or people who have nothing better to do than finding something to complain about . . . . or people who seem to enjoy complaining to everyone but not willing to do anything about it. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    I don't like double standards. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    I don't like people who seem to enjoy taking or spending other people's hard earned money. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    I get disappointed with people who don't keep their word. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    I particularly don't like certain professions who have rules for themselves and rules for others . . . . eg. politicians <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    I think I'm taking this too seriously . . . . . ah . . . what I don't like doing . . . .

    OK – being next in line for service after already waiting for some time and the person/s in front engage in a conversation about nothing in particular with the person serving. (ie. people having no concept or care about other people's needs)

    Ummm . . . . . being behind somebody who are just taking their own sweet time when I am in a hurry. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

    Having to constantly clean my pool because my neighbour's huge tree is over it and continually drops bark, nuts, leaves etc etc in it.

    Don't think there's anything else that really bothers me about doing anything . . . I am fit and healthy and able. Can't complain about that! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    OK here goes….

    These are things that I personally don't like doing…..

    THE IRONING, What a waste of time and I always put tram lines in trousers…. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    EMPTYING THE DISHWASHER, Yes I do know that I am lucky to have one, But….

    DEFROSTING THE FREEZER, Just how do all those peas and beans get in the bottom….. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

    CUTTING MY TOE NAILS, The older I get the harder the nails get, also I can't see my feet with or without my glasses…. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    Housework I don't mind, I just look on it as a good form of exercise, and I like weeding the garden.


    These are things that I just don't like…….

    PEOPLE WHO TALK DOWN TO ME, I may be getting older but I'm not brain dead yet. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    PEOPLE WHO PUSH IN, IN QUES…..Usually with the phrase, “I only want one thing, do you mind”…..WELL YES I DO, my time is just as valuable as yours and I have been known to say so….. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    CRUELTY OF ANY SORT……Either to animals, children or grownups.

    THE FACT THAT WE ARE PLUNDERING OUR PLANET……Don't cut down that tree unless it's a big nuisance, unsafe or causing damage, its some animals home!!!!!!!

    SNOBBY RETAIL ASSISTANTS…… I want to say, “wake up this is 2006 things arnt like that anymore”…… <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

    MOBILE PHONES……. A good invention, but no I don't want to listen to what your Uncle Fred or Aunt Betty had for dinner when I am out shopping or at the Antique Shows, AND WHY DO PEOPLE SHOUT INTO THEM…… <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />

    Well I feel so much better now I have got all that off my chest.

    My regards to you all……..Margaret….. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Just a quickie as I could not resist one of yours Margaret.

    SNOBBY RETAIL ASSISTANTS! Absolutely right! I feel like saying to them,
    you are employed here on salary to sell. I am not employed here and have the money
    to buy! (something like that anyway)! THANKS FOR MENTIONING THAT
    ONE!

    And……….just one more, Hairdressers or anyone for that matter in the service
    industry who do not move from your side whilst you pay your bill waiting for
    their tip!!!!!! That HAS to be another of my pet hates! One of our famous
    stores is really bad with this….as well as others…… <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />

    I have enjoyed reading all your pet peeves today, especially Margaret's.
    She made me laugh after having my back go out on Sunday. It was good medicine!
    Now…If you'll indulge me for my pet peeves. <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Being in the service industry of serving others…….
    First, I love it when a customer will ask you how much for a new a/c unit or furnace, then go somewhere else and buy, then when it does work, call you. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    Topping that is when you advertise free estimates for new construction and they call wanting free advice on what is wrong with the unit; then they find a friend or relate to fix it for free or a case of beer! Then they call back and haven't got it to run and still need a service call. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    The only pet peeve not related to business is ………………
    When someone stares at you out in public at a restaurant or someplace and
    doesn't have the decency to ask if they know you! Didn't their mother tell them
    it is not polite to stare. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    I couldn't resist this one, and it is one of Margarets pet hates too.

    THE MOBILE PHONE. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    My daughter and I were having lunch in a quiet restaurant, when four business

    men came to sit at the next table. No sooner had they sat down, one of their

    mobiles went off, and the chap turned away from the table where his colleagues

    were sitting, but spoke directly to us which I thought was rude. To cut the long

    story short, in turn each man received phone calls on their mobiles over lunch

    some maybe two or three times.

    My daughter knows how tetchy I get over this and she was saying calm down

    mum, we will move to another table.

    I do realise that since the invention of the mobile phone, it has made keeping in

    touch with business, to some a necessity, but please guys go and have a sandwich

    in the park, office, anywhere but do not sit next to me, I may not be as tolerant

    next time.

    Now, that I'm fully awake <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> I had to think long and hard. <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />
    Here is mine……..the ones who are to ignorant to say “you're welcome” when I say “thank you”. They say “no problem” <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
    To those low class idiots I say, “learn some basic etiquette <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> and stay away from me.” <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
    There it is. Aren't you glad that's my only gripe <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    I've had another couple of thoughts and a two more things which really get me irritated are:

    The BRIGHT family – the ones you are behind when checking in at the airport. After fifteen minutes waiting in line they put their luggage on the scales and the assistant asks them for their tickets and passports. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> You then have to endure the family each saying they don't have them – they thought so and so did. <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> They rifle their pockets and hand luggage – still nothing. <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ /> Oh no did we pack them in the luggage? <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
    By now I am extremely tense <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />
    Thankfully somebody remembers that they were all given to ………. who remembers he put them down his vest for safe keeping <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />

    Of course you can guarantee that the same family is right next to you on the plane. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> Everyone is getting settled, the hand luggage is in the overhead lockers when little Freddie remembers his game boy is in his bag – in the overhead locker. <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />
    And then mum says while you are up there will you find her ear plugs, oh and of course the book she has just bought to read on the plane. <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />

    Sometimes I think I have a very low tolerance level <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    HELLO CAROLINE…… <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    I JUST HAD TO LAUGH ABOUT “THE BRIGHT FAMILY” AHEAD OF YOU AT THE CHECK IN DESK.

    MY SURNAME IS “BRIGHT” AND I OFTEN WONDER WHY OTHER PEOPLE TAKE WHAT THEY DO ONTO AIRCRAFT. I AM THE SORT OF PERSON WHO CARRIES ONE SMALL HANDBAG AND ALWAYS HAS TICKETS AND PASSPORTS TO HAND, SO IF YOU EVER GET BEHIND THIS “BRIGHT” YOU WOULD BE VERY HAPPY, MIND YOU WE WOULD PROBABLY HOLD THE QUE UP HAVING A GOOD OLD NATTER….. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    MY HUSBAND AND I WENT TO SPAIN LAST YEAR, AS YOU KNOW IT IS ONLY ABOUT A TWO HOUR PLANE RIDE FROM ENGLAND. WE HAD OUR BREAKFAST AT THE AIRPORT BEFORE WE GOT ON THE PLANE AND AS WE WERE EATING I NOTICED A FAMILY A FEW TABLES DOWN FROM US WITH WHAT LOOKES LIKE A LOT OF HAND LUGGAGE…….GUESS WHO GOT THEM BEHIND US ON THE AIRCRAFT. WE HAD ONLY BEEN FLYING FOR ABOUT HALF AN HOUR WHEN I FOUND OUT WHAT WAS IN ALL THE HAND LUGGAGE…….. THE CONTENTS OF A FAMILY FRIDGE WHICH THEY THEN PROCEEDED TO EAT….. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    ONE THING THAT ALWAYS BUGS ME AT AIRPORTS IS…..WHY DO PEOPLE ALWAYS CROWD ROUND THE BOARDING GATE, DO THEY THINK THAT GETTING ON THE AIRCRAFT FIRST WILL GET THEM TO THEIR DESTINATION QUICKER. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />
