Things that annoy me..

Because it's Friday, let's talk about a few things that are currently annoying me.


It will forever be my biggest pet peeve when someone says "broke" when they mean "broken".
"My laptop is broke."
So, let me get this straight, your laptop is poor? It has no money of its own? Because that is what you just said. OH, you meant that your laptop is broken. Now I understand. Thank you for clearing up my confusion. Say that again and I'll break your laptop, promise.


I live on the 2nd floor of a 2 story apartment building. I have one downstairs neighbor. He currently can't drive his car because of the multiple DUIs he's managed to rack up. He works the night shift. He's told me multiple times he starts work at 10pm. I hear the obnoxiously loud truck that picks him up every night at 5 minutes til 10pm. I know where he works. I know for a fact it takes longer than 5 minutes to drive there, no matter how fast you decided to speed. But like clockwork, every night, 5 minutes until 10pm. I personally don't care if he's late for work or not, but I get irrationally annoyed every single night at 5 til 10 when I hear that truck and I know he's going to be late for work. Every. Night.


I don't understand the "i before e, except after c" rule.

 I read the other day that there are 923 words in the English language that break that rule and only 44 words that follow it. I have no way of knowing if that's true or not, but I did make a little list of words that don't apply that people use frequently.

Weird. Height. Science. Protein. Glacier. Leisure. Neighbor. Society. Weight. Veil. Vein. Beige. Caffeine. Efficient. Foreign. Their. Feisty. Being. Onomatopoeia.

Okay, so no one says that last word frequently, but I think we should. But seriously, who made this rule? It feels like some evil trick they teach 1st graders so for the rest of their lives they second guess their spelling, constantly. Well played, teachers, well played.


Any and all bloggers who think they're better than any other blogger. Honestly, I just want to slap you. And then I want to laugh at you. Is it just me or is that whole way of thinking just.. stupid. And childish. It's awfully easy to bring people down behind that computer screen. And that's all I have to say about that.


When tv shows don't understand the different between a cliffhanger and "to be continued". It's that time of year. Most of my tv shows are having their season finale episodes. It's expected that the finale will end with a cliffhanger so you'll watch the premiere in the fall. Totally acceptable. What is not acceptable? When they end a season finale with the words "to be continued". NO. It was like they taped an episode, cut it in half, only showed us the first half, and now we have to wait 4 months for the 2nd half. Not nice. Incredibly annoying.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

I don't know why I'm so cranky this morning. I have a 4 day weekend ahead of me! So I'm going to go enjoy it!

Feel free to comment and tell me things that are annoying you! I love a good vent session!

  1. 1. Maybe my laptop is poor. I don't know?
    2. Duhhhh... people behind computer screens are so big a machooo. :)

  2. I freaking love you Kay! This post totally made my morning and I may have to steal this idea for later. The loud truck... that would piss me off too. Not because he's gonna be late, but because it's a loud truck at 10PM. I mean sure, I'm not asleep, but I could be... and that would make me mad.

  3. Lol I loved this! I didn't realize how many words broke that rule!

  4. did you and so and so broke up? lol I see that a lot online! And Im with you about the I before e except after unless its one of these many exceptions. I'm glad i'm not the teacher that has to explain that one.

  5. People who think it's acceptable to make plans with other people and then just completely bail. For no darn reason! Not acceptable. Even more annoying is that person who just cannot manage to get in contact with you or text you back even though they just miss you oh so much... Drives me insane!

  6. Thse are great and so true!!! Except for the second one obviously about the guy I agree with the rest. I'd be annoyed about the loud truck though. I say the whole "broken" thing right but had never thought about that. I'm sure I've said it wrong a few times but now I'm going to think about it more!!! Whats up with the i before e thing? I seriously dont understand it. I'll admit that sometimes when I've gone to spell a word, like a long word, and it has those three letters I question whether the rule applies. But I'm not convinced about it. Two of my favorite shows ended this week. One was pure cliffhanger and the other said to be continued. The show just like stopped. They didnt even like finish the scene.

  7. Loved everyone! I can totally see myself being annoyed by every one of these things if I were in your shoes.

    Except that whole spelling thing...I never remembered that rule to begin with. :)


I love you people! Let's be friends.
