Not a Top Anything but a Most Annoying

I have seen many blogs out there that list “top 10 this” or “top 5 that” and many times I find them to be hilarious.  I decided yesterday that a whole lot of crap annoys me to no end, so I do not think I can fit all of them in a list limited by a “top” number of some sort like five, ten, or even 100 for that matter.

What I plan to do is list the things, actions, sayings, etc. that I find most annoying.  Like I said there are a lot of things in this world that bother me, so this will be an ongoing post.  If you post your most annoying, great.  If you comment on my list either agreeing or disagreeing, I may or may not comment back.  I may even add to my list based on your comments.

So, here goes:

No. 1: Slow drivers in front of me who are obviously lost or simply freaking clueless.  Get off the road jack and let the rest of us who know where we are going get to where we are going!

No. 2: The fact that school buses stop at every damn driveway 20ft apart!  Are you kidding me????  When I was a kid, you had to walk to a common bus stop that was in proximity to everyone else, which meant some people had to walk a few blocks.  Now, I get stuck behind a bus that puts its annoying stop lights on more repetitively than a politician lies!  No wonder today’s kids are so soft!

PS—Get out of the way so us tax payers, who pay your salaries, can get to freaking work on time!!!

No. 3: Public transportation.  When I am on a busy road trying to get somewhere and I get stuck behind a public bus, I get very annoyed.  But that’s not what gets me.  It’s the brazen way in which the drivers drive.  They will cut you off, get in your lane or whatever they have to do because they know if you hit them, no skin off their backs!

No. 4: Educators who think simply because they “teach” in a classroom that they know everything about educating our children.  News flash, have you seen the latest stats on how the US ranks in the world? It ain’t pretty!

No. 5: Web sites with annoying ads that pop up, slide the article I am trying to read down and any other intrusive ads these creative geniuses think of!  I am there to read an article jack asses, not to be pummeled by advertisements!  Subtle ads are cool, but this in-your-face crap needs to stop.  All it does for me is make me ignore the advertiser’s product even more because they are so inconsiderate.

No. 6: Teachers who go on strike to complain about their pay.  Hello!  You work part time!


I’ll be back.  I’m just getting warmed up but I really should not let my blood boil this early in the morning.

  1. I am in agreement with number 5. I avoid those sites once I find out I will be attacked by ads. Number 6 I totally disagree with. I know a lot of teachers, and the job is NOT part time. They work year round even without pay. Long days, too. I have been a nanny for teachers for years and they work harder than anyone else I know.

    • I know a lot of teachers as well. They are done work by 4. They have every Holiday off, plus snow days, plus “in service” days, plus two months in the summer. They work hard, I agree. But with a national average salary of about $55K, that is pretty solid when many people make either less or the same working all year. I just want them to stop complaining and stay off the picket line!

      • I don’t like the picket lines either. $18,000 yearly is common in Idaho for a teacher (sucks royally). The teachers I know go to work around 7am and get home about 5pm. Some work during the holiday breaks for no extra pay. I know not all do, but the many I have known do. We will just have to agree to disagree about it being part time lol.
