I just found these and thought you might enjoy them.


Doesn't It Annoy You When...


1...there's a car alarm nearby that goes on for hours and the owner is nowhere to be found?


2...you buy an answering machine so you won't miss any calls, and then everyone hangs up when they hear the machine answer?


3...there's a cop car in sight and everyone thinks they have to drive 10-15 mph slower than the speed limit?


4...you're reading a magazine and all those annoying little subscription cards keep falling out?


5...you tell someone that a door is locked and they try to open it anyway, like it'll magically open for them and not you.


6...someone says, "well, to make a long story short" and then they go on telling it for another 15 minutes.


7...a friend or family member says "Yuck! This is awful!!" and then tells you to try some.


8...you have to inform five different sales people in the same store that you're just looking around. I don't find this too common anymore.


9...you rub on hand cream and can't turn the bathroom doorknob to get out.


10...a waiter or waitress is not around at any time other than right after you put food in your mouth.


11...your tire gauge lets half the air in your tire when all you want is a pressure reading.


12...there's a dog in your neighborhood that barks at EVERYTHING.


13...the power goes out, and you discover every flashlight you have has dead batteries.


14...someone gets in the express lane at the supermarket and writes a check or uses a credit card. I really hate this one. I also have a problem with young capable people who don't bag their own groceries. They just stand there like ninnies waiting for the cashier to finish scanning items and then the cashier bags the items. Hello, I would like to go home.

15...the elevator stops at every floor and nobody gets on.


16...you almost ALWAYS back up your computer files but the week you don't, your hard drive crashes and you lose everything.

There's hope! Car alarms are now illegal in New York City. They should be banned worldwide as they accomplish nothing but irritate people.

Thanks Lisa, #3 is one of my all time pet peeves, especially on the freeways.

Oh... can I add one??

I recently flew somewhere and United charged me $15 to check my bag (mind you, my bag isn't that big, but I like to be "handsfree" until I get where I'm going).

I go to get on the plane and there's people here with HUGE carry-on bags. When they get to the door of the plane, there's someone there to take their bag and they can pick it up right there on the jetway, when we land.... FOR FREE!

Mind you, these "carry on" bags are no where close to being the alloted size of a carry on.

17...You call a business and ask for Mr. ------ and the person asks who is calling. Does that make a difference?

An addition to #14. They don't even start writing the check until all the items are scanned. Did they have to ask who to make the check out to?

Or when there's an accident. "Everydody" has to slow down to look. One of these days you might actually see something so horrific that you really didn't want to see.

Some Of Life's Annoyances.....LOL

When the boss says that “we have to cut back in the department a little”. Like we can’t buy this tool or that item of need right now. Things that you have to have to do the job yet now you do it without the item. Crazy….

It's like they wait... just in case the name of the grocery store changes in the middle of their purchase!

Wow... I haven't written a check in soooooo loooooooooong.

You forgot the people that "STOP"dead !!!!! on the "on-ramp" and stick their heads out the window to see where to merge in oncoming traffic on the Interstate. Instead of using their side mirror and excellerating to fall in line with the flow of traffic..........and then jump to the farthest left lane and slow down.....Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
