a very merry Un-Thanksgiving to you

things in my life that i'm not really that thankful for:
1.   the roadrunner that has taken up residence in my neighbor's bushes.    i like roadrunners....i'm just not thrilled when he wanders over to get a drink out of the koi pond and the inside dogs go nuts.

2.  people who have no concept of personal space.

3.  the rate that the laundry hamper fills up.

4.  the sign-twirler on our corner who insists on feeding my dogs leftovers.  my guard dogs now think everyone at the fence is a friend.

5.  people who open our back gate; walk thru our backyard and knock on our backdoor when their car breaks down on the busy road behind my house.

6.  boy2's annoying ringtone.

7.  boy1 being in nashville for the holidays.

8.  kids who ride their bikes on my driveway when my car is parked there.

9.  people who sit at the drive-thru atm and have to add the deposit, sign the checks, look for their atm card, make a couple phone calls, apply makeup, change the baby's diaper BEFORE they can actually begin their banking transaction.

10.   drama....


  1. Um...ok. I'm with you on #3, #9 and #10. But I'm going to add:

    ~The alarm on my cellphone, and when it goes off at 5:30am.

    ~When I just get around to cleaning something, and it's dirty the next day.

    It's early and I can't think of any more, but I'm sure there are some!

    Have a great day, Jill!

  2. Oh man, number 9? THAT is one of my biggest pet peeves! I want to rear-end them (and not in that nice way) and push them out of the way.

  3. it's was surprising to me (in a good way) that this was actually kind of difficult....

  4. Thanks for the Chuckle!! Makes you all the more 'thankful' for the atm lane when it's empty, doesn't it? =0)

    Good list!!
