Sometimes some things are just irritating. Here are some of the latest ones ...for me. 

People who borrow all the time
Businesses that don’t turn off their OPEN sign when they are closed.
People who cook out in front of their home.  What is it that you think you'll miss in the community? Or  is this an open invitation to everyone living around you to eat at your house?    I couldn't find a picture for what I really wanted to show.

Leaving lawn clippings in the street or blowing them into the street after cutting the grass.  There is not a grass fairy that removes the grass when you blow it in the street.

Why pay extra for organic food? You’ve still got to breathe. Last I heard there was no organic air.

People who think they’re being complimentary when they smilingly say, “ You look like you’ve lost weight.”   What they're really saying is, "You don't look as fat as you did the last time I saw you."

People who park in handicapped spaces illegally.
 as well as
(this one's personal) 
People who have the audacity to question people who park in the handicapped spaces just because the parked person doesn't  fit their image of  handicapped.  For example people with heart disease, MS, emphysema.  Unless you hold an MD and travel with all the machines to diagnose a person...F*** off.

Being put on call waiting while someone answers another line and expecting me to wait there while you have a 10 minute conversation with the other person.
Constantly being placed on call waiting during our conversation.

People who stand over me talking while I’m eating.  There’s more than breath coming from your mouth and was that fish and raw onions you had for lunch? What’s that brown thing that  just landed in my vanilla ice cream?

Not cleaning up garbage after cans have  been turned over and leaving the garbage  there until it disintegrates, the paper reverts to pulp,  and bugs and animals consider the food scraps  an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Litter and the people who do it.

Paying $50 for a live concert and finding out the musician or singer uses high definition electronics to make them sound like they’re talented.

This isn't irritating but I've wondered:Is Tweety Bird transgendered? I can't tell if it's a male or female.

Do you save that to-go cup that had the delicious coffee  thinking that if you make coffee at home and put it in the same cup it’ll taste as good as that last cup?

  1. Borrowing neighbors... one of the reason I try to stay distant. You get too familiar with them and the next thing you know they want to borrow... irks me to no end.

    Front yard BBQs are a hot mess.. hate it.

    Last week I watched Penn & Teller on Organic BullSh*t... seriously.

    The most irritating is when a person spits.. mind you like a step away from you... WTF... makes me burn.
