facial expressions, TWO, and what makes you P!ssed off?

Lotsa pics this morning. Usually you have me posting little bits all day, but I thought I would toss out one big post this morning and make it interactive.
I have been sick in these PJs for over 36 hours. I am feeling better. I shall try to have a good work day, repair the kiln, make bunnies, maybe even go outside.

Tink's weekly word challenges are two and facial expressions. I have that in spades.

Gets me thinking though: what really p!sses you off? Drivers, dog poo on the sidewalk, a runny nose, when somebody doesn't put out a new roll of TP?
I know that those little cards they stuff into magazines drive me up a tree, I hate those cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They make me violent.
Go to comments: what really p!sses you off????? We wanna know!

What tee's me off:

Whining, particularly the way my daughter does it. My brain short-circuits.

People who drive under the speed limit. Or, riiiiight, almost at it. But, slowing down the rest of the world, thus creating chaos.

The toilet paper roll thingie and that goes for the paper towel roll holder too.

When Hubby tries to get on my LT.

Oh- too many to chose from- but I tear those blasted cards out as I read the magazine-
And Bush- he still REALLY pisses me off and those pig headed *&^^&&$### people he left behind when he left office. We are not done yet!

yeah, LET IT OUT!

Everything.

Probably noticing the building mob is allowed to destroy the historic downtown here in Antwerp, Belgium.

I used to have a great river left-bank view, with new $ 1 million penthouses obscuring that view soon. The building/destruction of historic parts is already in progress.

And I won't even start about the noise on my balcony next summer...

kate et jim said...

Rudeness. Just plain, nasty, mean, intentional rudeness. Arrgggghhhh.

Hermetically sealed, anything! (I always cut myself, regardless of how careful I am). It makes me crazy just looking at something hermetically sealed, knowing I have to open it!

Crappy food. If I wanted to eat crappy food, I'd open a can of my cats 'chicken delight'. If I'm out and I'm paying for it - it better be right. It totally pi$$es me off when they bring my plate and it doesn't even resemble what I've ordered!!!

The list is endless!

Lis Garrett said...

How about a husband who travels to Arizona for the week and leaves me shivering in the cold with three kids and a failing septic tank? THAT pisses me off.

Oh, and my son left his snow boots in Corning.

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

OH OH, a failing septic tank in winter?????? There's a problem. I remember once in New Hampshire on a 10 degree day trying to dig through 2 feet of snow and 18 inches of dirt and ice to find the top of the tank so the plumber could make a repair....
and YEAH, packaging like cds or anything else, think of bananas, can't things open like that?

Tink said...

Traffic/Commutes tick me off... A LOT. I hate people who drive under the speed limit during rush hour. I hate tailgaters, light-runners and cellphone chatters. Large groups of motorcycles irritate me too. I'm starting to think that maybe the whole driving thing, as a whole, is my problem. ;)

I love the pictures! The clams crack me up. What in the world made you think of creating them?

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

there is a joke in this house, when one of us is getting upset, rather saying 'be calm' we say 'be clam', but sometimes you just have to let it go and be a crabby clam, yes?

J said...

Whining. I'm pretty laid back, but if someone whines at me, it just pushes me over the edge. My wife does it intentionally just to get me going, then she giggles at me while I fume.

Jessica said...

Love the pictures! Sorry about you being sick! :P

I get pissed when someone asks for advice and then doesn't listen when I give my opinion. Of course, they don't have to follow my advice, but they could at least pretend to listen to what I have to say after they ask.

Jerry said...

Inconsiderate people piss me off. Big time. From rude & clueless drivers, to people yelling into their cell phone in the grocery, to the "whistler" in our office who whistles non-stop. Try thinking about how your actions affect other people. Hey, there's an idea!

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

a lot of people getting pissed at other drivers---I don't go anywhere so mostly that would be unfamiliar to me...

Hilary said...

When they come clear the sidewalk, but leave a huge mound of snow at the end of my driveway, sometime after I'm done shoveling. Hurry spring!

Jay said...

What pisses me off most actually changes from day to day. Right now smart people who pretend to be dumb and not understand something that's really simple annoy the living *bleep* outta me.

Tomorrow it will be somebody else. ;-)

Linda Starr said...

Those cards in magazines, I tear them out and throw them away.

Irratic drivers (brake for no reason) slow drivers (never look in the rear view mirror to see they are holding up traffic).

Snotty, rude and mean people, sarcasm should only be taken so far.

People who don't take care of their animals.

People who leave their shopping cart in the middle of the aisle and chat while I'm trying to get by. I now leave my cart at the end of the aisle and walk through each aisle to get my items.

People who steal my cart in department stores - they put all my stuff on a shelf and fill it full of their stuff - I guess if I didn't leave my cart at the end of the aisle they wouldn't be able to steal it - tehe.

I am starting to think that what really gets me is HEAD COLDS, not that anybody should feel sorry for me. Really. I mean, colds happen, right? I wonder if there is some trashy movie I can netflix upload this afternoon...
I WORKED ALL morning, thanks very much, that is enough good behavior for this stuffed head.

Jerry said...

Might I suggest you instant view "Cleopatra Jones" from Netflix. I think you will enjoy it wholeheartedly and it might even cure your cold.

denis said...

people who litter! nothing drives me more insane than that.

denis said...

...and people that repeat things.

g-man said...

Stupidity in all its forms ticks me off.

Most excellent photos for the WWC my friend. I love the clams.

Office Space is the best!

Hope you get your kiln up and running soon. keep warm.

jimgottuso said...

looks like you hit the jackpot as far as questions go... so... LEAF BLOWERS, i know, it's winter but now i even see them being used on light snow.

Emily SIL said...

People clipping their nails in public.

Men who insist on taking two or more seats on the subway by sitting with their knees spread far apart.

People yakking away on their cell phones loudly enough so that you can follow their conversations. This last one is especially annoying when you're waiting on line in a store behind someone doing this; you're captive until the transaction is finished but it's prolonged because the person refuses to put down their phone.

People who rush past you or around you without saying, "Pardon me" or "Excuse me, please".

I could go on and on...

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

maybe a little KICK between those outstretched knees would be a good idea? they'd probably curl up on the floor and there would be two open seats!

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

I don't not like water bottles rolling around on the floor of my car. I may have mentioned this a time or two or twenty-nine on my blog.

I also don't like whining unless it is me whining.

I also don't like it when my internets don't connect with other internets. I really really strongly disfavor disconnected internets. I'd vote them off the island.

Emily SIL said...

The kick would have to look like an accident...

Reb said...

Love the photos - well done.

I get ticked off at so many things. People who say they will do something, then they don't; people that are oblivious to the fact that they live in an apartment building and that noise travels between suites; GAIN detergent and other highly smelly products that people use far too liberally - scent should be elusive people, not choke everyone on the bus or in the office or the store. So many more things, but I will quit, because whiners (especially adults) are unattractive.

Hope your cold is better soon.

kate et jim said...

I really hate it when the cable company screws up and there is NO SERVICE!!!

I had NO computer, NO phone service and NO TV since 10:30 this morning!!! It came back up a little while ago!

Yes - I was pi$$ed off!

Janet said...

What really pisses me off is when I keep telling someone I want to buy a clam and they never respond!!!

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

Janet, you do? How did I miss that? Get out your checkbook darlin'!

Lynda said...

What pisses me off?? Bad service - ugh! and bad grammar.

Those magazine cards are NOT fun.

But mostly, teenage attitude - ugh!

Emily SIL said...

I get pissed off when people confuse "it's" with "its". The first one is a contraction meaning "it is". The second one is the possessive form of "it". (Okay, thanks for reading. I feel better now.)

bookwork!

I just found out that no one likes my driving in town. Because I try to drive right at or under the speed limit, ESPECIALLY in SCHOOL ZONES. On the other hand, *I* get ticked off by people who tailgate me and dangerously pass me in those very same situations. Slow DOWN folks!! (But I am good at speeding on the highway, VERY good at it indeed.)

I hate the fact that I am still tired all the time. I'm not very happy to have to go back and REPEAT a sleep test with MORE wires, etc., because they don't do the full test the first time. So now, I have to go back, but I have to wait nearly 6 weeks to get my 2nd one. Six more weeks of feeling tired all the time. Plus I have a sore throat.

I hate that I just had a nap with a NIGHTMARE about snakes. My hand and arm are cramped from trying to keep it from biting me.

And I'm ticked that my energy is non-existent and I didn't get my house cleaned up today. Sore throat AND a messy house. ICK.

kcinnova said...

Ooops, Great WWC pics, Gary!!

It's dangerous to say it's okay for me to complain. My dh says I am a pessimist.

kate et jim said...

I'm with Lynda when she mentions TEENAGE ATTITUDE!!! I tell ya, it doesn't end when they turn 20...

I have a sign in my kitchen that says:
RAISING TEENAGERS IS LIKE BEING PECKED TO DEATH BY A CHICKEN!

Chelle said...

When people mix up your and you're. ARGH. It's not that hard to figure out, is it?

Gary Rith Pottery Blog said...

wow, 40 comments on a Tuesday! of course, I am number 40....

kcinnova said...

Raising children is like being pecked to death by a chicken. Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree.

Biggest pet peeve was realized last night at the band concert: people who TALK through the ENTIRE CONCERT!! (This was after it was announced that it was being RECORDED *AND* there were two adjudicators there to listen and give feedback prior to the competition in mid-March. Sheesh!! I was ready to knock some heads together.
