1…. People who tell me what I can or can’t write …
2…. In the past week I’ve been told no less than three times that something I’ve written or posted shouldn’t be posted. Most of these things have happened on my Gardening blog of all places.
3…. One person told me why I shouldn’t do any posts for Loudlaunch, and gave me a long description of his problem with them.
4…. Another person blasted me on As the Garden Grows for saying that Toronto’s been warmer than normal in the last two months. Going so far as to tell me how wrong I was and calling me a stupid idiot. Right. I’ll take your words to heart and change my ways especially since you’ve gone so far as to insult my intelligence. Yeah sure.
5…. Then yesterday I was told that the snowman photo that I posted on my gardening blog might be offensive to some people.
6…. I didn’t really think of that photo as being offensive when I posted it. If anything I thought perhaps people might take more offense at the Wordless Wednesday Photo that I posted on this site because it deals with obesity and anorexia.
7…. People that have been reading my sites for a while, and people that actually know me – know that I go out of my way trying not to offend people or hurt others feelings. I do that because it’s my own feelings that often end up getting hurt far more often than most others. Plus, If I really tried to not write anything that would offend anyone I’d have to stop writing and posting pictures completely because just about everything has the possibility of offending someone somewhere.
8…. Bad drivers – people who change lanes or turn without signaling, cut you off, can’t park … you name it, bad drivers make me mad.
9…. People who park in front of my driveway – blocking it. It’s bad enough when it’s my elderly neighbors kids. At least they’re only there for 30 minutes or so and I know where to go to ask them to move, but when it’s strangers? Idiots!
10…. Packages that I can’t open. Have you ever bought something – maybe something small like a package of batteries or an accessory for your cell phone and you notice that the package is three times the size of what’s inside and coated in plastic that you can’t tear with your bare hands? You have to go and find your scissors in order to open it and sometimes the plastic is so thick that even your scissors have trouble cutting it open? Yeah, it’s those kinds of packages that make me mad.
11…. My neighbors and their loud Karaoke. Yes they are still at it and the singing hasn’t improved. Gag me!
12…. Websites with autoplay videos or music. Especially if I can’t find how to turn it off easily. Nothing like visiting a site and getting blasted with music.
13…. As I pointed out in yesterdays Wordless Wednesday I’m not using Mr. Linky anymore because people who take the time to visit my site and leave a link could also take the time to leave a short comment. Leaving a link and running off to the next site is rude.
