Friend Makin' Mondays!!!

Today's task: 10 things that just really get you fuzzed up (that means makes you mad)

Here are my 10:

1. When my kids fight. They fight over the DUMBEST things and it makes me CRAZY!

2. When people take their dogs out without a leash. I don't care if he's a "really good dog, and won't run off"...the law says keep him on a leash people!!!

3. When I try to google a picture of something innocent and get something completely inappropriate. This especially ticks me off when I happen to have a kiddo looking over my shoulder and they are BLINDED by something they don't need to see.

4. People who don't obey traffic laws. I know, I know, I'm a nerd...but I am such a rule person. Which brings me to...

5. When people make up their own "special rules" for board games. I have issues, I know - but when ya change the rules, you're messin' with the mojo and it might alter the outcome! How do I know that you would have actually beat me if you had played the way the rules say?

6. Right now...SNOW! Every time I look out the window and see yet a fresh batch of the white stuff, I want to swear! But I don't. Okay, I did once.

7. When my husband tells me I spend too much time on the computer. Is it really his business? :-)

8. When I ask a store employee a question and they say: "I don't know, that's not my department". End of discussion, no "I don't know, but I'll be glad to find out", just nothin'. You work at a store! First rule of customer service...it's ALWAYS your department!

9. When cars don't stop for pedestrians who are waiting at a crosswalk to cross. I think it's so rude when car after car after car goes by, and a person (usually a mom and her kids) is stuck standing there forever waiting to cross.

10. On that note...I hate it when people are like 5 feet from a cross walk, and decide to run across the street NOT in the crosswalk, and everyone has to slam on their breaks.

I pretty much just can't stand rude, non-rule following people! (But if you're a nice non-rule following person...I probably still love you!)

What makes you mad? If you'd like to play go over to Kasey's to read the rules and link up! Happy Monday everyone!

I don't like when people don't pick up after their dogs either...gross. I'm with you and the snow too because we're supposed to get some tonight, it's making me a little sad. Cute blog design.

I love love love the header!!!!

I have always said, people should have to go back and take written test after 10 years. It's amazing how the rules of driving slip the mind. Hello the thing beside the steering wheel is called a turn signal. It's there for a reason!!

OK, I'm in Southern Cal, so I don't understand your #6, But I am right there with you for 1 - 5 and 8 - 10. My husband doesn't do #7. Or if he thinks it, he doesn't say it. (smart man.)

Girl, you crack me up. I found these so fuuny and soo true. Love the one where people make up their own rules for board games! I am like that too, I always follow the rules! I really enjoyed reading your list!

Becca @ The Texas Darlings said...

It totally bugs my hubby when the kids fight, but I have just learned to tune it out...I seriously just don't hear it anymore!

And unfortunately, there is no such thing as customer service anymore. It is really sad.

Hope you have a great week!! Thanks as always for your super sweet comments on my blog. Hope you don't get anymore snow.

Love your list!

I have to admit I am guilty of #2 and yes I have to say it...but she's really good!

I have had #3 happen to my daughter while she was doing research for school...OUCH! Now there's a blocker on the computer that wil not allow anything thats not rated by their individual age to come up, they have to sign in to use the computer!

Love the new look~ You so Rock Sistah!

Cute new page!!! I played along with FMM today! ;)

jenjen said...

Oh I loved your list! Yes, I am a rule-watching person too. People that think they are above the rules drive me crazy!!!And rude people too!

It's so fun to get all of these things off our chests! All of these lists are making me laugh!

XOXO

Amber said...

Great list girl! And so funny. You thought of some really good ones!

Although I do have to admit that I don't *always* follow the rules. I do speed most of the time. Not unhealthy speeding, just always a little over. :)

Have a great Monday! Love the new look, my blog makeover is almost done & I am SOOOOO excited!!!

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

oooo, love the new layout!---here are some of mine:
-people who blindly follow popular political movements/ideas without having a clue for they stand for or where they originated
-people who work in customer service and have NO desire to serve the customers...I almost clocked the cart guy at Bloom the other day--he wouldn't even LOOK at me when I asked him a question
-people who let their kids make all kinds of obnoxious noise in a church service and don't get up and take them out for a breather (or to the nursery!)
-overpriced kids' clothes


Okay, sorry I will stop ranting now ;)

Cassie said...

I hate the dog without a leash thing too. Especially when it makes me feel like I can't take my dog out for a walk because I don't know how the other dog will act!

shortmama said...

Great list and loooooove the new blog design!

jennykate77 said...

Well, I follow most rules...except I speed...and I'm sure there are a few other rules I break, but not many. ☺ I am so with you on #5!! I played Monopoly yesterday for 4 hours with a bunch of cheaters making up their own rules!! It was quite frustrating. I can't believe that didn't show up on my list!

Great list!!

Hope you have a marvelous Monday!

heidi said...

Oh the DOG thing! Grrr! People here take their dogs EVERYWHERE! Even to church! It irritates me to no end.

Julie said...

I hear number 7 quite a bit...I just have selective hearing when He starts telling me I'm blogging to much! He still does not really understand Blogging anyway...and my kids think I'm too old to Blog...I'm only 42...

Jen said...

Your blog looks FANTASTIC!!!!!

I agree with #4!!!! Use your turn signal!!!!

Amy said...

Today I was in a store. I was looking for a dress and they lady said to me "I do not work in this department, I am just filling in for the girl who is out today".

I am having my Round Robin on Friday April 10th if you want to share one of your craft ideas.

Have a great day.

P.S. Love the look of your blog. I see another Mod Podge Mania is coming up.

Love the list :)

I can't stand kids fighting -- it's why I only have 1 child. Fighting drives me crazy!

Heidi @ Tayterjaq's Rebels said...

I purposely didn't list anything my kids did since I there are too many things to list that they drive me insane doing....bickering and tattling are the two worst in my book.
You would never want to play games here. Our kids are constantly changing the game rules to suit themselves and sometimes we even change them when we are playing as a family to make it easier on the younger kids.
I get frustrated with the pedestrians that wait in between cars to cross so that I can't see them until I am already driving past them...how am I supposed to stop for someone I can't see?

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Ack! Rules! I hate when people break them... except when it's me. ;) Ahahahah.

Thanks for your lovely comments today.

DomesticDivasFancy said...

I love your new blog look! It looks wonderful. I love your fuzzed up list! I agree with all those!

Marrdy said...

Great list...I once got a ticket for jaywalking in downtown SLC. Cured me for life!

Jamie Catron said...

HAHA! This made me laugh. Hard!!
