Thursday Thirteen thoughts

I am so excited I could pee my pants (not really) as I begin my newest post in carrying on the spirit of bloggers everywhere.
Welcome to my Thursday Thirteen list which is entitled,
13 Things humans do which are universally annoying:

#13. Drivers pull up behind a car only to slow down and then speed up and will then pass only to then cruise at the exact speed one has been driving the entire time.
speaking of dumb driving, I 'll throw this in as bonus- Drivers who refuse to pass within an actual legally permitted passing zone but will have no problem waiting until that line becomes completely solid once again ...and then they pass.
#12. Parents who let their children scream at the top.of.their.lungs while pretending not to hear them until 20 minutes has passed where they then threaten the kid at the top of.their.lungs .
#11. It is asked 'will that be all' before you can even mutter the first item out of your mouth at a drive-thru window.
#10. Every time one walks up and joins the end of the grocery line each person in front of them must turn around to look them up and down for no apparent reason.
#9. People automatically assume that (upon introduction) should they tell you their entire life story within a 5-minute-span you might actually have found it time well spent.
#8. If one person is staring up into the sky soon enough 100 will follow.
#7. The need to have small talk ... everywhere.
#6. People who assume their needs are a continuous emergency.
#5. Strangers actually think that eavesdropping in public entitles them to comment on your private conversation.
#4. The store clerk asks 'will this be together' as you and your husband jointly and visibly placed all items onto the counter.
#3. People think it is cleverly unique to repeat ideas, sarcasm and facts which have been around for centuries upon centuries.
#2. People will vacuum over an unidentified object only to then pick it up, examine it and then toss it back onto the floor.
#1. Those who become really creepy once the elevator doors shut by creating a painstaking weird silence.

Hi! I love the quote at the top of your page. I'm always telling people that it's no wonder we treat our fellow humans so horribly; we can't even treat our animals with compassion.

great list : ) I saw you over at 24@heart asking about strike through text. Since you have blogger, it is EASY.

if you sign into blogger in draft for your dashboard, there is a little button for strike through text when you write your posts. Yes, it's that easy : ) Hilight your text and click the button.

There is also a box you can check when you first sign in to make blogger in draft your default dashboard. Have fun!

Holy cow, I can relate to every single one of these. Now, either everyone else will say that to you as well and I've just siad something completely inane, or we were twins in a previous life.

My particular favorite was #10. I LOVED that.

And thank you for commenting on my blog, it prompted me to see yours!

#2 - I've been guilty of that! But I always wonder why I do that. Why don't I just throw that away?

Stupid drivers sure are annoying!

Sorry it took me so long to get here today. Thanks for stopping by. We're preparing for a hurricane.

hee hee! I'd add - people who let their dogs bark all. the. time. and don't keep them quiet or TRAIN them! :o

Great list! :)

I confess: Guilty #7. I don't like uncomfortable silence. But then I read #1 and that is where I'm usually guilty of #7. I was going to say #2 - Who does that? But now I see - it's forgetful one...LOL. In all honesty, I'm probably guilty of a lot of these at some point or another. Great post! And thanks for stopping by my site.

Thanks for stopping by the other day! Sorry it took me a bit to get back to you, I'm a bit behind on my blog reading!

Oh #13 is one of my HUGE pet peeves. I definitely think cars have cruise control for a reason. Pick a speed and go for it!

Mine is people who, on purpose, hit animals crossing the road.

to add to #10 those in line, as the person in front gets their receipt hollars 'next" to get the 2nd person to move down. give me a second.
