Just a Little Harmless Venting

Okay, Plinky. You want me to vent? YOU WANT ME TO VENT?? (Pretend I’m using Jack Nicholson’s voice when he said, ‘YOU WANT THE TRUTH? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!’)

So vent and expound I shall. Thirty times.

1) I can’t stand it when people ask: “Can I ask you a question?” Really?

2) You know those paper roadmaps? I hate it when they’re not folded back up correctly.

3) I understand the need to abbreviate when texting. Truly, I do. But when your excessive abbreviating srts mkng ewe snd lk a toetl ideut…..then you should just make a phone call. Stop insulting my intelligence, mkay?

4) Here’s the thing. If you want to be all “Thug” and walk around with your britches around your knee caps, then please for the love of GAWD make sure your underpants are clean. Please.

5) I love my Ma-in-Law. I got real lucky in that department. But she has this little motivational quote that drives me nuts. “Make hay while the sun is shining!” In other words: “You’d better get your butt to Walmart and back with a quickness so I don’t have to watch this heathen child of yours any longer than I have to. I’ve got Bingo at 8.”

6) Strangers who come up and grope your pregnant belly without asking. Now, what if I came up to you and groped your groin? Without asking. It’s the same thing. Remember that.

7) I am physically nauseated by a couple who do PFR. Public Foot Rubbing. Like when they get all love-dove and start running their stanky foot up the other’s leg, doing that eyebrow thing. I can’t stomach that.

8) My husband does this thing that may one day get him killed. There are times when his snoring drives me to the sofa or guest room. About the time I’m ready to enter the blissful sleep state of REM, he’ll come stand over top of me like something out of “A Christmas Carol” and start poking me until I sit up and start punching the air. Then with his genius mind, he’ll say: “What are you doing?” Like I said. Justifiable homicide.

9) I’m sick and tired of getting the grocery cart with the gimpy wheel.

10) Did you know that your airplane seat becomes a flotation device should you slam into the ocean at mach speed? I’d like to meet the brilliant mind that thought of that. Shake his hand. Give him a cookie and a juice box.

11) I refuse to establish friendships with people who lick their food before eating it so no one will swipe their grub.

12) People who infer that another person is stupid with cutey patootie jive lingo. Such as:

* All his dogs ain’t on the same leash.

* Intellect that can only be rivaled by garden tools.

* Missing a few buttons on the remote control.

* His Slinky’s kinked.

* His cheese slid of the cracker.

13) I double dog dare anyone to come stand on my porch, pound on my door and start hollering Christmas tunes with festive cheer.

14) I despise persistent and dedicated Jehovah’s Witnesses.

15) It pains me to say that I have relatives who actually believe that Achmad Habib from Kenya has 5 million dollars he wants to give them.

16) Should I be frightened that the nurse techs at my shrink’s office can’t pronounce the name of my meds?

17) I’m becoming more convinced with each passing day that Facebook has full blown, un-medicated schizophrenia with a side of manic depression topped with a dollop of FRIGGIN’ CUH-RAZY!

18) I think it’s whack that my ghetto library had to take all the DVD’s out of their cases and stash them behind the front desk due to “Excessive Theft”.

19) I don’t trust those Mall vendors who sit in the middle of the Mall in their little huts, hawking their wares. Don’t trust them at all.

20) If I were a senior citizen, I’d be offended that they play Medicare and Hoveround commercials ten times louder than the normal ones.

21) More often than not, when someone is telling me a story, all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

22) Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the “people you may know” feature on Facebook people that I DO know, but I deliberately choose not to be friends with?

23) I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

24) LOL has gone from meaning, “laugh out loud” to “I have nothing else to say”.

25) I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the shower first and THEN turn on the water.

26) Whenever I’m Facebook- stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning. 546 pictures? Don’t mind if I do!

27) I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

28) I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

29) I think it’d be totally cool if McDonald’s started selling hot dogs. McDoggies.

30) I’d like to face-smack the idiot who put an “s” in the word “lisp”. I mean, smack him HARD.

  1. I am assuming that 🙂 is 8. I need to try this on my wife some time.

    I’ve done #23 since I was a kid. I call it being smart and lazy.

    I hear you on #25. I will let the water run until scalding hot before I will get into the shower.

    Great post 🙂

  2. Hmmm.. McDoggies. I’m liking this! Something I’d like even more is if Maccas came HERE. NOW. STAT!

  3. 21) More often than not, when someone is telling me a story, all I can think about is that I can’t wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that’s not only better, but also more directly involves me.

    This is my beloved husband. My Hot Joe. I had to stop and restart reading it 3 times to get it out smoothly, and remind him how much I love him first. Awesome awesome awesome.

  4. Ugh. I always get the shopping cart with the bum wheel. Hate that. Has a life of its own and constantly veers to the right.
    The texting thing also drives me crazy. Iif I discover any of my friends are the kind of people who lick their food before eating it so no one else can have some, I’m using it as an out.
    That’s horrible.
    Great list.

  5. 22) In my case they’re people I had no idea even existed until Facebook said I wanted to be friends with them.

    Pretty much all the others – are we long lost twins?

  6. I LOVE IT!! That’s hilarious! All the stuff you said about Facebook is soooo true! I was facebook stalking a few people last night and I don’t even have facebook anymore!!

    (30) is a good one! I work in Special Ed Reading and this is so true!

    Good Blog! Keep ’em coming! xo

  7. I HAD te tweet what u said about FB stalking. I also posted the link to ur blog. This is HILARIOUS!

  8. This is AWESOME!!! I would love to share this with people. I was already laughing but it became painful when I reached #8 on your list. Definitely justifiable homicide.
    Great job. 🙂

  9. OH! And you know I am also afraid of the nurse tech’s at the shrink’s office. That just isn’t right.
