Loving Life after 50

Things that Piss Me Off

I know there are a lot of kinder, gentler ways to lead into a blog post about Pet Peeves but today I am all about being pissed off…… ok on a serious note I just used that to catch your attention. Honestly,  I am a bit pissed off at a few hands that I have been dealt but this post is not about pissed off its about pet peeves. We all have them right, those little things that drive us crazy, lifes irritants, the irksome habits of some….pet peeves should cause irritation but not outright rage, so fair warning if rage is building let it out people, its not worth it….

I have a few pet peeves, big surprise right,  one would think with a smiley face like this I would not be irritated by anything. LOL

My biggest pet peeve in everyday life, CRACKING KNUCKLES…. you know the sound that fingernails on chalkboards make, well that is what a knuckle cracking sound is to me..my kyrptonite. I will slap you silly OK maybe I won’t actually slap you but I will want to.

More Peeves:
People carrying their whole world on an airplane
People who put their stuff in my overhead bin.
people who do not know what a “liquid” is at an airport
Line cutters
talking in movies
people who stop at the bottom and top of escalators
people who use the word “irregardless”  argggg it doesn’t exist people….
asking my advice and then not taking it.
socks with sandals on guys especially
dress socks with sneakers.
people who have more then the 8/12/16 items allowed in the cashier line
bike riders who use both the street and the sidewalk and do not obey the rules
cell phone talkers (you now the ones I mean..)
slack coworkers
texters… you know the ones who find everyone else more important than you..  hello I am with you.
people who leave drawers open,
people who leave cupboards open
people who do not make their beds,
when you do not put your dishes in the dishwasher

Good Lord I do have a long list of pet peeves don’t I,  that;s what happens when you get old, you get ornery LOL.( OK I left the |H” off on purpose I really did mean ornery not what you were thinking.

So on to a more pleasant topics, it is fall and the temperatures are dropping and I got to wear my new antique hat,  new to me but purchased in an antique store so… New/Old Hat. and even better we spent the evening searching for flights and hotel in San Antonio, I think we are heading to the Alamo Bowl this year and I am super excited about that.The randomness of my post is perfect for todays link ups, or at least Shanna’s right, Random Wednesday. Chalk it up to my head and thoughts being just a jumble lately. 

Today’s outfit was an attempt to address the frigid temperatures in the office yesterday so of course they finally turned the darn heat on and got the furnace running so yep sweltered just a bit this afternoon. ( and did ya notice the lack of graininess in my pics the last few days…..yep figured out what I was doing wrong with the canon,  big hint people do not stand in front of the lens as you are pushing the button,  camera focuses on you up close and thus when you get into position BLURRY)

I loved all the combinations of textures and colours that I wore today, well except the tights, I thought they were black till I got to the office so that was an unintentional colour combo,  it worked ok though.  Swapped my Kate purse for the Coach I purchased last winter, love the oxblood/wine/burgundy shade.
