Only five? Why not ten? Why not twenty? You mean I got to select only five grievances for this prompt? Sheesh. Well, okay, then I will TRY to narrow it down to five, heheh.
1.Mispelling. Did I misspell that? Well I dont care if it was done accidentally or out of sheer ingnorance, but I cannot stand to read misspelled words, even my own! If I can go back and correct it, I do. Auto correct doesnt always correct, either. Be mindful of your spelling, it will help the blood pressure of others stay down, lol.
2.A redneck accent. I live in the south, so I hear it a lot. Sometimes a word or two escapes my own lips in a southern accent, and I work to correct it. So much so that I’ve been told I sound like I’m from ‘up north!’ I consider that a complement. But it DOES sound dumb. I just cant stand it.
3.Lack of Turn Signals! Please, people, auto manufacturers dont put blinking lights on your car just to make small children giggle. The folks driving behind, in front, or around you cannot read your mind, we havent evolved to that point as a species yet! Pedestrians cannot read your mind, either. How lazy are you to not move ONE FINGER to hold down a turn signal? Decrease your risk of an accident even more by using this very special auto feature! Use. Your Brain!
4. Cracked heels. I see them everywhere I go, summer AND winter. People wearing flip flops with the MOST hideous unkempt feet I have ever seen in my life! Dry, cracked, peeling heels and feet that look like they have never felt a drop of lotion in their miserable existence! How can ANYONE neglect their feet? And then show them off? You think people never look down?!
And why in God’s name are you wearing flip flops in the !@#$% winter?! With a jacket and hood? What is the MATTER with you?!
5. Littering. People have done it right in front of me, casting aside their nasty cigarette butts, fast food wrappers or cups as if the very second it leaves their person it is no longer their responsibility. It’s someone else’s. Sure the world isnt gonna last forever, but you dont have to add to its nastiness. Use common sense, will you? Take it to the trash can! You can do it, I promise!
There, five annoyances. I feel better for typing them out. Feel free to check my spelling, heh heh!
