You Should Know

I have a lot of pet peeves, certainly more than are necessary.  Some may merit their own individual blog post.  I very well may accidentally insult a reader here or there.  But in the interest of full disclosure, and in no particular order:

1.   I do not believe in the term Mrs.  There’s no corresponding term for men, and I don’t need the r in my name implying I am some man’s chattel.  Ms. for all women seems to work just fine.  To all you feminist bashers, this does not mean I’m a lesbian (not that there’s anything wrong with that)

2.   Letters that are addressed Dear Sirs, for obvious reasons

3.   Use of the “word” irregardless and the much over utilized practice of saying utilize when use will do

4.  People who don’t like cats or chocolate

5.  Anyone, anywhere, anytime, who says anything remotely negative about my niece and nephews; I nearly came to blows with someone who tried that

6.  Food that has onions, whether they are red, white, yellow, green or Vidalia; scallions; spring onions; chives; just make it stop

7.  People who need people (just making sure you’re paying attention!)

8.  Low talkers and/or mumblers

9.  Anyone who has ever seen a Great Ape and still doesn’t believe in evolution (which I touched on in my USSR posting)

10.  Everyone other than me who has a driver’s license

11.  People who say “no offense, but…” and then go on to say something highly offensive; saying “no offense” at the beginning of a rude statement is not a get out of jail free card

12.  Anyone who pronounces nuclear as nuke-u-lerr

13.  Sloppy drunks

14.  Fruit touching chocolate

15.  People who insist on talking about themselves when it’s supposed to be all about me

16.  People who think Dick Cheney is a swell guy

17.  People who never watched Seinfeld

18.  Alarm clocks

19.  Random people who think I need to be saved and want to tell me all about it

20.  People who paddled away from the Titanic with half-filled life boats

    Absolutely not! In an emergency, I might gnaw the chocolate off of the cherry. But only if no other chocolate is available AND if it’s a medical necessity (withdrawal)

    Wait, you mean you don’t like chocolate covered cherries?

I Love To Hear From You!
