9 Things that can be annoying....

1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know where my watch is, where is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

2. People who are willing to get off their backsides to search the entire room for the T.V. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change the channel manually!

3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they?

5. When people say while watching a film "did you see that?" No, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the floor.

6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?".... Didn't really give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

7. When something is 'new and improved'! Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

8. When people say "life is short". What the hell?? Life is the longest thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?

9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?" If the bus came would I be standing here?

*~*~Add one of your own to make it 10!

Hope your Monday is off to a good start!

**Notice over there to the right...Edwin McCain is singing I'll Be. This is one of my very favorite songs. One that you might hear me harmonizing or singing on any given day.

Nothing is very "unique," the most "unique," or has varying degrees of "uniqueness." Unique means "one of a kind." It's binary. It is or it ain't. On or off. It is one of the few things left that is "black or white." Please don't take that away from us.


NIKEY said...

when an athlete says ' it's not for the money ' as the reason he signed the contract , it is for the money believe me !

Becky said...

I can't really think of anything witty to say, too early in the morning. Let me try...

My dad would get road rage when I was a kid, always used to call people "moroff's" He'd say, there is nothing more on about them!

Foto Man said...

' There's no business like show business ' is stating the obvious. Wherelse can you :
1. lambasts Jews when you are working in an industry dominated by Jewss
2. see an industry with such pipsqueeks like paris hilton and l.lohan making CD's
3. stars hating paparazziz when they need them to make themselves famous .

rastaman said...

I'll be back. When I think of a good one.

Peace and hugs to you babygirl!

Cinderella said...

People who chew with their mouths open!! Or smack their lips, do you know how badly I wanna ....ohhh never mind!! =)

Lee Ann said...

Mike ~ You are right. like, being pregnant...that is a yes or no answer

Nike ~ Absolutely, that is true!

Becky ~ Oh, that is good!

Lee Ann said...

Foto ~ You are absolutely right! That does get to me...the celebs want to be in the spotlight and be popular but they don't want to be bothered until they want the attention!

Rasta ~ Ok Rasta, I look forward to your return.
peace and hugs from babygirl

Cinderella ~ Hey! I am glad to see you over here. You are right about that. It is so unpleasant. I hope you will come back to visit the Castle more often.

coach said...

When peeps say to me before a ballgame that ' the ball is round ' I am almost tempted to reply , of couse it is round . Otherwise the ball will bounce funny !
Actually , what they mean is anything can happen. Not if the other team is heavilly favored !

truckdriver_sefl said...

Love your list this morning!!

You are soooooo right that is and AWESOME song!!

Have a wonderful Monday Lee Ann!

MyUtopia said...

Mmm...cake..... It is cake day at my work today. Once a month we get cake at our Monday meeting to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries.

Lee Ann said...

Coach ~ Yes, when people state the obvious...too funny sometimes.

Trucker ~ Thank you Trucker, you have a great day.
Seems as though we have very similar tastes in music!

Myutopia ~ Oh good, you can have your cake and eat it too! ;)

Jason said...

Here's one. I'll hear people order at a lunch counter and say "can I have a hamburger, sandwhich, etc?" I want to pipe in and say, "no, you have to pay for it first fool. This ain't no soup kitchen!"

hotboy said...

I spend so much time trying not to be annoyed ... I'll be back when I can think of something really annoying! Hotboy

john said...

How abt. when people ask you with
' Can I smoke here ' when he has his
cigarette all lighted up .
Of course you can , just make sure don't inhale , OK ?

Lee Ann said...

Jason ~ Oh yes, I have heard people say that! haha
Another one annoying to me is when you are talking with someone and they ask you "what was your name"? or "what did you say your name was"?....well I am thinking, my name IS.....

Hotboy ~ Ok! *giggle*
You are so laid back, I just know we would get along so well.

Lee Ann said...

John ~ Yes, haha, not much of a choice at that point, huh!

Polyman2 said...

One of my favorites is; "When you get a chance," I mean if you need it done just say so.
Another is, "Not for nothing..."
what the frig does that mean?
Or how about even "How are you?'
to open a conversation, Do you really care? and should I be truthful and give you a list?
Arrrg...Now you got me started.

Lee Ann said...

Poly ~ Yes, I hear you! haha
By the are you sweetie? I really do want to know! :)

Dave Morris said...

My ex-wife used to think the song said "love super-sized" instead of "love suicide."

Lee Ann said...

Dave ~ Now that gave me a laugh...thank you.
I love the mis-sung words of a song!

Perplexio said...

1) Actually I do a walking motion on my left hand using my pointer and middle finger on my right hand and my thumb when asking where the toilet is.... well I used to. I stopped doing that when I was getting strange looks.

2) If I want to change from channel 3 to channel 7, I have no issues with manually changing the station if I can't find the remote. But if I want to change to channel 58 and I'm on channel 3, I'd much rather hunt down the remote.

3) couldn't agree more

5) Shit! I knew I shouldn't have blinked, I completely missed it!

6) Yes, you just did. Thanks, I've got to be going now. :-) I do prefer the "Can I ask you a question?" to the "Let me ask you a question." I'd rather be asked if I can be asked a question than told I'm going to be asked a question whether I like it or not.

8) Listen to The Galaxy Song sung by Eric Idle in the Monty Python film The Meaning of Life. Life IS short.

9) Yes, the bus came before I got here too, that's why I'm waiting for the next one, just like you! :-)

And my number 10:

10) In grade school in line for lunch my classmates would ask one another, "Can you let me ahead in line? I'll let you back ahead." Just to be a smart ass, I'd often ask the person standing directly in front of me in line this question.

Lee Ann said...

perplexio ~ VERY GOOD!
I love your number 10!

Mystical Me said...

I love that song!!!

I dont have any good ones so Ill come back when I do. I like the 1-9 those are awesome. :)
Take care sweetheart!! XOXOX

Ellen said...

My favorite is when people tell you how they'd do something while they sit back and quaterback the moves. If that's how they would have done it, then they should step up to the plate and do it, and quit wasting my time in telling me how to do it if I'm already doing ok.

Love Edwin McCain as much as you do! Thanks for the tune!

BallerinaGurl said...

ROFL that totally cracks me up! ok here is mine:

10. When someone in a store asks if they can help you. Sometimes we browse ok, but don't you think if I needed help I would just wander up to a sales clerk? the really bothersome thing is when they either ask you 5-6 times while in the store or send each and every salesclerk to hound you with the same question. I actually answered one time "what do you think?" back at one of them years ago and it shut her up lol. I know it is rude but I was so irritated! Commission based employees I guess lol.

I LOVE Mondays!

Neo said...

Lee Ann - LOL!!!! Thanks for the grin, I could use it today.

Usually when someone says "Can I ask you a question." I look at them and say, "You just did," then go about my thing.

Peace & Hugs,

- Neo

Alistair! said...

I'd eat yer cake darlin'

whoo blogging drunk!

Alistair! said...

I just realised...I'm off your links list baby. Now I'm gonna haff to slit mah wrists. Man! I thought I could alwayds count on mah Princess.

Fame said...

I love 5 & 6. I have nothing witty to say either. I love that song too. Hope your well L.


Lee Ann said...

Mystical ~ Thanks sweetie, have a great day!

Ellen ~ Yes, I completely agree! haha...I thought you migh like Edwin! :)

Ballerinagirl ~ Oh, that is funny. I know, poor sales people. Once I went into a jewelry store and was just looking (for a gift), but I wasn't sure what I was going to get. I was looking in the center cases and the guy followed me up and down, I moved across the store to the side case, he followed me over there, so I immediately went back to the center case, and I was team tagged, a girl shot across from the other corner to be right there. I ended up just walking out. I love the attention to a point, but I wanted a chance to look a bit, without feeling like someone was breathing down my neck. Oh well!

Lee Ann said...

Neo ~ Hey sweetie, I hope your mom is all right. I will be right over.
Oh, now that was a good answer!

Allistair ~ Oh thank you sweet Alistair. OH! What, wait a minute.
Sorry sweetie, truly an oversight. I got you back up! ;)

Fame ~ Oh, looks like Edwin is a favorite with the ladies!
Glad to see you. Hope you are well to!

Ceri said...

Hi LeeAnn :) :) :)

Ceri said...

I love the word pipsqueek.

Ceri said...

What about when someone says: do you have an extra cigarette?

Nope. Only 20 in the pack.

Neo said...

Lee Ann - Don't forget to bring the wine. :) Btw, the current post has something I think you might like. :)


Lee Ann said...

Hey Ceri ~ Love your new picture! It is great to see you, I have missed you.
Yes, that is a good one...
Have a great week!

Neo ~ I love it! Thank you for sharing that.

Phats said...

I would really annoy you! I look all over for the remote cuz getting up is just not fun.

I am annoyed when people don't use turn signals!

Lee Ann said...

Phats ~, I don't think you would annoy me.
Yes, didn't they ever wonder what those turns signals were put in a vehicle for!

robmcj said...

Heh Heh!

I have to say, I sometimes point at my wrist when asking for the time. I do it deliberately because here on UnHeard Island people have difficulty understanding my Scots accent and slight speech impediment. I also do it if I'm feeling impatient and stressed, and I don't want them to say "what?", I just want the time ASAP.

"point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?" - LOL.

As I see it, number 3 means "you want to eat the cake yet still have it in your hand"

When people ask you number 6, just say Yes and walk away.

Harmonising is a great thing to do. Enjoyable and healthy.

robmcj said...

When my partner says "so you're back!"

robmcj said...

Re "the mis-sung words of a song", there's at least one large website devoted to misheard lyrics. I'll see if I can find the link.

robmcj said...

robmcj said...


robmcj said...

Another thing I hate is when a person leaves half a dozen comments in a row.

Lee Ann said...

Rob ~ you are just too cute. I love your Scots accent, you should call me sometime, just so I could listen to you.
Most of these things are you know, I try not to be!
Thank you for the links, I will check them out. Maybe I will learn the real words to some songs that I thought I have already known! :)
I never mind if you leave several messages in a row, I always love hearing from you.
Oh yes, I have changed the song that I harmonize to.
Have a great night!

Henri Banks said...

You damn right about all those things ;-)

Lee Ann said...

Henri ~ :) Hope you have a great day!

Spinning Girl said...

These are a riot! I don't know how you come up with this stuff!

Lee Ann said...

SG ~ Glad you came over. Hope you have a great week!

Metalchick said...

Those are funny!

Yours reminds me of one I used to get all the time when I used to work at McDonald's. I would get customers that say "Can I get the double cheeseburger from the dollar menu?" That one drove me crazy! I would want to say "The double cheeseburger isn't anywhere else on the menu!" or "Oh! You don't want the one on the regular menu?" Thank god I don't work there anymore!

Lee Ann said...

Metal ~ haha, that is good! Yes, when you get to the point where you want to say that more than anything, then it is time to move to a different job. I completely understand that one.
Good to see you again.
