Things That Make My Blood Boil

This. This right here.

My husband says I get angrier when people cut me off in traffic than when someone insults me to my face. Or when my kids don't do what I ask and get away with it (that last irritates the life out of him).  But what really chaps my hide?

People who double park. People who double park in handicapped spots.

People who cut me off in traffic.

People who drive below the speed limit in the left lane.

So. What do I do with all that pent up rage? Wander into my yard. Breathe with me.

Hunny ripped out the ugly evergreen bushes by the front door. There are little seeds in that soil ready to burst through to the surface and TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

There. I feel a little better. Then there are these:

The plain yellow daffodilies may be spent, but these whites are TAKING OVER THE BULB BED!!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

*phew* Don't you feel better too?

Now excuse me while I email the first photo to the local police.

Until I write again ...

Yes I feel better. Hope they catch the no driving clown!

Anything with color coming out of that drab dirt makes me feel better--even dandelions (I'll eat those words later.)

I saw a bunch of rowdys in a huge knobby-tired pickup park in a handicap spot at the grocery store. When they jumped out and started to saunter in I asked them (pointing to their parking spot) if they were handicapped or retarded. They didn't have an answer.

I found out the hard way how nice it is to have those spots near the door when I finally got well enough to go to the store, but still too bent over to move too fast. Hide-chapping curses on anyone who uses those places without a need!

drives me nuts when A clearly NOT handicapped person parks in handicapped parking... GAH.

My word, that photo irks me. But bonus! You could make out the license plate if you enlarge the photo.

Oh the parking thing makes me NUTS, especially when they don't even have a parking sticker.

Other drivers also fill me with rage I had no idea I possessed. It's also the only thing that can put me in that state.

I love the rock bed! I'm trying to think of new things to do in my yard that just require me sitting with a small shovel. And staring aimlessly.

I also scream at the top of my lungs when I'm driving.

I was looking closely, and I think I agree; there's no permit in that truck. If the driver has a permit and didn't hang it, he/she can bring it to court to contest the ticket.
Yes, green is cheering!

That slow driving in the left lane thingy? Can. Not. STAND. That!!!

I am so feeling the earth now... aside from being in agreement with you on the former.

Weird Al can always make me laugh no matter what kind of mood I'm in... I thank the children for leaving their old Weird Al CD's behind, for my old age.

A little time with nature and everything's okay!

But yes. YOu and me both. Inconsiderate people always make me frown...

I'm glad you are forwarding on that pic! My mom is one of the people that NEEDS that handicapped space so seeing that, would totally piss me off too! Dumb people!! said...

Okay. I have to admit that when you were listing all those things that make you mad and then you showed the picture of the upturned earth marked with boulders, I thought you were going to say that was where you buried the bodies.
Okay, so you were going a WHOLE 'nother direction... I gotcha now!

Even if they did have a handicap sign in the car how does that make double parking OK. I am pretty sure you are not supposed to be driving if your handicap is blindness, the only excuse I could think of for parking like that. I am so happy to see the daffodils of spring right now. And my tulips.
