You Heard It Here: What Makes You Rant?

Just out of curiosity… What is your pet peeve? What makes you crazier than crazy? What boils your blood and makes you stand up and say, “Hey! That is…” fill in the blank.

I’ve discovered I have a couple of things. One is if I see someone kick a dog. Oh man, you do not want to kick a dog if I am in the vicinity, because I will go bat-sh*t crazy on you. My most common response (since it’s happened a couple of times) is, “Hey! How would you like it if someone five times YOUR size kicked YOU?” Or ten times or how ever many times bigger that person is than their pet. Aargh… it really burns me. But, okay, that’s not even my topic for today.

The other thing that chaps my ass (excuse my French) is when I’m at any one of my daughter’s game and opposing parents trash talk the girls on my daughter’s team. Really? Do you really feel the need to scream at a young girl and tell her she needs a hug? Or tell her she’s a meanie? Or any number of words that I can’t repeat here? How would you feel if I did that to your kid? Not very happy, I would think.

I really, honestly don’t get some people sometimes. Is there anyone out there who tries to put themselves in other people’s shoes before they mouth off? Do people ever try to see the whole picture or the other side of the story before they say or do something completely and totally ass backwards/wrong?

Is it ADD? Is it the lack of attention span that makes people act without thinking? Was it never taught? Or is it a lack of brain cells? There are so many choices…all of them terrible excuses for bad behavior.

Tell me, what’s your pet peeve?

    • Hi Janie,
      LOL. I can see how that would be a pisser. Haha. I can imagine your roar when open up the fridge and discover your yogurt has been hijacked! Thanks for stopping in!

  1. the people who put viruses in other people’s computers. The deserve to get a bad human virus and suffer greatly!
    I had to put my desk top down (yes, euthanasia for machines) on Sunday. Got badly infected by people who wanted to spy on me – creeps.
    Yeah, that’s my rant
    the only bright spot was I’ve now updated to a new computer with a stronger force field etc.
    Thank goodness I have automatic back up to a cloud in cyberspace. Now I have to download all of my old files and pictures etc.

    • Hi Lynne,
      Oh no!!! So sorry about your ‘puter. But glad you have a new one and everything was backed up. I’m totally with you on the hackers and virus creators. They are the scum of the earth. Yep. I said it. Shame on people who willfully go out to destroy the hard work of innocent unsuspecting people. I only hope their karma comes back and bites them on the ass. Hope the downloading goes smoothly! Thanks for dropping in!

  2. I hate people who get aggressive when they get behind the wheel of a motorized vehicle. Perfectly well mannered moms in SUVs will turn into serial killers on the road. What is up with that?

    • Hi Sarah,
      I have no idea. I think a lot of people in SUVs – and the bigger the SUV, the bigger the attitude – tend to think since they have size, they have the right of way. And, in general, I wonder if those people are well mannered to begin with. Haha. Thanks for dropping in!

  3. I’m gonna take it back to the dogs, (or really, the humans responsible for the dogs), and say people who do not pick up after their dogs are destined for a special sub-basement of hell where all the un-picked-up droppings are waiting for them…for eternity!!!!

    Maybe these people don’t pick-up because they don’t know what to do with the poop? I have the solution, and it involves parents who trash-talk the opposing team at their kids sporting events.

    • Hi Sam,
      Ha! So true! Love your solution (no matter how you meant it)! Yeah, I don’t get dog owners who can’t do the whole job. You have the dog, it’s your responsibility to clean up after your dog. What don’t you understand about that? Boggles the mind. Thanks for coming by!

  4. Yep, cruelty to animals is a big one for me too. One freezing winter afternoon, I saw my nephew laugh and spray his dog with a hose when they were visiting my parents. I was outside, had the hose out of his hands and was yelling at him before I even realized I was moving. Unfortunately, his mother (my sister) took offense at my reprimanding him. Too bad — there’s no excuse for that behavior.

    Another thing that drives me crazy is when people litter. I once saw a woman who was walking with her child, drop an entire bag of fast food trash not ten feet from a trash can. Unbelievable!

    • Hi Julia,
      Good for you!!!! Yes! You have to stop that behavior when you see it…I totally agree with you! Oh man, I can’t stand litter-bugs either. I get so mad at people who toss their cig butts out the car window! They don’t want the trash in their car, but it’s okay to toss it so the rest of us get it? I wish there was a hotline to report the cig droppers. I’d do it in a fast heartbeat. They should get a hefty fine. Grrr….
      Thanks for stopping in!

  5. I hate the creepy guys who leave “hello pretty lady” messages on FB and think you’re dumb enough to buy into the message. We all know you are spammers and phishers, you creeps! And we know that isn’t your real photo either dumbass. Can you tell I recently had a couple more?

    • Hi Robena,
      Oh no!! That is aggravating! I think I’d have the urge to send a pic of a someone other than me… maybe the Wicked Witch of the East, with a note saying this is a more recent pic of me. That might scare ’em off. Haha. Thanks for dropping by!

  6. All of these are good ones and I am with each and everyone of you on them especially people who can’t pick up after their dogs–at some point some city will make it illegal to walk dogs because of this or are mean to animals and children. What’s up with that? Just because you feel like crap about yourself, you need to pick on an animal or a young person to feel better about yourself. Ergh! Crazy people in their cars who are speeding and involved with their cell phones either via text or on a call. My mom and sister witnessed an accident where a mom in an SUV with toddler in car seat in the back was speeding ran a red light and flipped the guy who was turning left legally. Fortunately no one was hurt, but she could have killed him, herself or worst of all her kid. REALLY?!?!?! I think pretty much all of it goes back to people who think that the world revolves around them and don’t take the time to think, “Hey, my actions are impacting others and not in a positive way.” My rant is about all of those people who only think about themselves no matter how that belief manifests itself-viruses on computers, pet poop, abusing animals and children, or driving like lunatics. I just want to yell out, “Earth revolves around the sun and not around you.”

    • Hi Maria,
      I’ve got a loud, “Amen!” for you. You’re right. Most people don’t think about how their actions affect others. It’s sad. Maybe next time we see someone doing any one of those things, we should yell out your line, “Hey! Earth revolves around the sun and not around you!” I seriously might just do that! I’ll keep you posted! Thanks for coming by and ranting with us!

  7. I’m with everyone so far on their peeves. Here are my top 3:

    1.My phone rings. I answer, “Hello?” The response, “Can you hold on a minute?” What? You just called me!

    2. You run into someone on the streets and they say, “Hi! How are you?” as they continue to walk away. One of these days I’m going to respond, “terrible”, and see if they stop or awkwardly have to demonstrate how much they really don’t care.

    3. Laziness. It’s just a waste of awesomeness that could be!

    Cheers everyone! To sharing our peeves so that we may never peeve another again. 😉

    • Hi Tricia,
      I’ve never had that phone issue happen to me, but that would peeve me too. And I’ll be sure not to do a drive-by hello in the future. Haha. I have to admit to occasional laziness, but that’s only in between a crazy massive work schedule. Thanks for coming by and sharing your peeves!
