Should I be worried that a) so many Ehellions are bothered by the same things, and b) that I am part of that group?
Add me to the lists for:
- grammatical and spelling errors, including random pluralization, apostrophe abuse, and the “close enough” approach to spelling
- verbal cutesiness under any circumstances (that includes talking to babies and animals)
- anyone but the “chosen few” touching me
- people who can’t get to the point (my DXH, who, when you ask him what time it is, tells you how to build a watch)
- people who make noise with empty soda cans, or, worse, empty plastic water bottles
- people oblivious to their surroundings – who block aisles, sidewalks, etc because they don’t pay attention to other people and things around them
- noises, especially leaf blowers, loud music and small yappy dogs (we call them “lunch dogs”)
- sticky or dirty hands. I wash my hands a lot.
- my hair getting caught in the hinges of my glasses. Since I use “cheaters” for reading, I push them up on top of my head, out of the way, when not using them – so this happens a lot
- being touched by DH’s feet while in bed – not the rest of him, just his feet! What is it about feet?
- removing other people’s hairs from the shower, bath, sink and/or washing machine. With four cats, a long-haired teenager, and a middle-aged DH, that’s pretty much all the time. Yuck!
- pretty much everything on TV. 500 channels and nothing worth watching.
- the sound silverware makes against our stoneware when DS is trying to get the last of his pasta sauce. Yes, I make awesome marinara, but that sound is like fingernails on chalkboard on steroids.
- my pants not staying up right at my waist, so that the crotch is too long. Since I’ve been losing weight (not on purpose), it’s a constant problem.
- women’s shoes that look great but don’t come in wide sizes. I don’t care if B width is standard, those of us who wear E and EE deserve pretty shoes too!
- women’s work clothing designed by the clueless, who assume that all women are the same size and shape. No, we’re not, and I resent having to buy men’s things to fit over the girls and then tailor them everywhere else. Also, work wear suppliers who have ten times the selection in men's as in women's clothing and equipment, even in fields where women are now in the majority (yes, UnderArmour, I'm talking to you!)
