This post is dedicated to some of my pet peeves. If you don't feel like reading through my complaints, feel free to move on.

It bugs the snot out of me when strangers comment on my kids' tears! Mallory was so tired of grocery shopping with me today. I can usually calm her down when she cries, but she wasn't having it today. I was on my last aisle at a small grocery store, and I just wanted to get my last few items and check out. An older woman was standing in the middle of the aisle taking her sweet time. I couldn't get around her, so I was getting ready to say "excuse me." She turned around and said with a smile, "Somebody's mad." Yes, ma'am. Somebody's mad. Thank you for noticing. Why state the obvious? As the great Bill Engvall says, "Here's your sign."

So, here are some more of my pet peeves:

1. Hearing someone's nose whistling
2. Pregnant ladies that wear shirts that are too short to cover the bottoms of their bellies
3. People that stand WAY too close when talking to me
4. The overall lack of customer service these days (Wow! I really sound old.)
5. Hummers. Really, people. Come on. We aren't living in a war ravaged society.
6. Children who blast me in the house with a water hose :)

So, let's hear it. What are some of your pet peeves?
