I'm Annoyed

Blizzard Reports

During winter storms, unimaginative TV reporters always hit the same sites for live remotes: hardware stores (“They’re sold out of shovels, Biff!”) and supermarkets (“Paige, the milk and bread aisles are stripped bare!”). Question: if you live in a cold climate, don’t you already have a shovel? And unless you’re in a North Pole sublet, I’m wagering you won’t be trapped or starve. That’s why God invented plows and ramen noodles.

First Pancakes

Why must they always be so wretched? Why?

Tacky in life, media chum in death. Let her rest in peace, already.

Well, must dash to my Annoyed Women’s support group!

  • I agree with all of your annoyances!
    One of mine is people who have cell phones and do not answer their phones. Why do you have a cell phone then?? Or when someone calls you and then leave a message and are like "Call me right back" so you do and they don't answer! Hello???
    And traffic that is my other pet peeve, I think they should pass a law where you have to put your cell phone number on your license plate so that you can call the person in front of you who won't get out the way and then you coule tell them to MOVE OUT OF THE WAY!

  • Having just finished my morning commute, the thing that really burns my @$$ (besides a flame about 3 feet high) is people who cut me off in traffic. I think I am going to get one of those air horns...yeah, that would make me feel better. HOOOOOOOOOOOONK!!!!!!!!

  • I am crying from laughter and I'll tee up another: gym-grunters. Is all that noise *really* necessary?

  • Jeannie, this is hilarious!

    I'll add one: Close office talkers! There is a guy in our office who comes into other people's offices and literally goes behind their desk to stand right in front of them and talk to them. Ugh!
