People who fly ripped and/or faded flags.

Too many people think they are being patriotic flying these rags~ they bring tears to my eyes that they disrespect the country and the flag so much!!

If your flag is ripped, torn, or faded and you do not know how to retire it properly please take it to your VFW for proper disposal!

2. People who don't put the shopping carts in those cart corrals.

3. (Some) women who you can tell hasn't had a haircut in a few years (YIKES!! at least get a trim or something. Damn!).

4. Lateness (I can understand maybe 15 minutes late, but more, c'mon! give me a break. Why did I ever wait?).

5. People in a shopping aisle and they see you want to come through, but they refuse to move....(Oh!! That pisses me off bad!).

6. Some women who sitll have those God awful long haired permed 1980's hairstyle (I know of a bartender, in the town I live in, who does and I just can't help talking about it sometimes. Sheesh!! lady, get with the today's style and get rid of that ugly ass perm! It's too old!).

There's more:

7. Bad grammar and bad spelling (sheesh! Use a Thesaurus and a Dictionary).

8. Screaming baby or child at a restuarant (I'm sorry but I'll just order a small appetizer so I can get the hell out of there fast!!).

9. Stares (I really can't stand when folks stare at one another. For what?! Because of the way they look, the clothes they wear, or what??!! It's them, leave them alone and move on with your own damn life!!).

10. Musics too loud in the car (I hate when some men have their music blaring when they take you out. You can't have a conversation. And when you try to turn it down, they'll turn it up again about 5-10 minutes later!! Sheeesh!!).

11. Liars (I just hate when someone say they'll show up and don't. And I hate when they say they are what they are and really aren't, you know).

12. "Flighty" type people (they can't sit still to hear what you have to say, but they really want YOU to listen to them....Not!! No, I'm leaving. Nice knowing you).

13. When an item, at the store, doesn't have a sales price on it (OMG! And just imagine getting that and taking it to the cashier. Okay, you'll be there for 10 minutes til they figure it out or something...Damn!!).

14. People with no sense of directions (I went out with this one man and I gave him directions to pick me up. My house is really easy to find, only 1/4 mile from the highway. He was way off when he called me. By about 5 miles!! I was pissed. So, I went to my drive-way and had to flag him down when he called me back! Come to find out that he said he never really pays attention to traffic signs or anything like that. Besides, it was a horrible date anyway 30 minutes later).

Ugh, I am trying to go up the proper side and they are coming down towards me.

People who think that someone flying a flag is more patriotic than someone who doesn't.

Someone who thinks your patriotism can be measured by now new and fresh and clean your flag is.

I knew a man, now deceased, who into the 1980s continued to fly the ragged faded old 48 star flag that was given to him by his son who was killed in WWII. I bet he really pissed a lot of people off. Such disrespect for the country.

I'd rather see no flag than a ripped up one~If he really repected that flag he would have kept it nice and neat~ not let it rip to shreds and think that rag was repectfull of either the country or his son~ or did he think his son wasn't worthy of repect! PS. I am a twenty year vet~ and respect for the flag IS taught in the military~ and that is why the VFW is a good place to teach idiot so-called patriots like you to actually respect the flag.

Respect is something you feel in your heart, not something that gets bashed into your head by sadistic drill instructors.
