Mumbles & Grumbles


I'd like to pretend that I don't moan and that I don't grumble. I'm usually upbeat and rather happy but every once in a while I let that go! So here are my grumbles of late...and their solutions!
Me me me - Just of late I seem to hear some people who talk about themselves all the time! "My life is so crazy busy..." "People just don't get what I'm saying" "I need someone who is..." are just some of the sentences that are making my eyes roll in the back of my head. Quit it! The world doesn't evolve around you.
Muffin Tops- If you have a muffin-top, your trousers are too small. This can be easily solved by buying bigger trousers.
Tailgater's- Oh my life these guys have descended onto the roads of late. Please stop following so closely. There is no reason to get up so close to my rear end! In fact it just makes me want to go slower so no-one is winning. You’re just pissing me off. So my solution? Get off the road, learn to drive better or take a chill pill!
Long queues- ohhh I think this is the one that gets me riled up. I have patience, I need it for my job. But not when your in a long queue with one person at the cash til and their's Mr/Ms Corporate in the corner just standing there 'overseeing things.' When he/she could be on the til helping out, ever heard of customer service?!
Food talkers- I don't really want to see what's digesting in your mouth while you talk thanks. Conversation is much nicer when you have finished swallowing your edibles.
Slow Walkers- My 82 year old Gran can walk faster at times! Why dawdle?!
"Yeah like"- I have to admit I do this sometimes, okay a lot. But it grinds me when someone says it in conversation to me. "Yeah but like I said to her..." or "Yeah but like that's not how it happened..." This is not correct grammar or pronunciation! Solution: Speak normally (and that includes me!)
Mumblers- If you want people to understand you, you must speak clearly. Solution: Slow down. Say each word and remember it’s easier to say something clearly one time.
Well I sure feel better. What bees have been getting in your bonnet lately?!

Good list, quite a few of those I must say get on my nerves as well. Also I'm guilty of a few, oooops!

Haha! To the tailgaters and long queue ones. That really gets my goat up!

This post cracked me up, I love a good rant.

Amen to the tailgaters! Yesterday I was driving along a country road, I could see a lorry a little further up the road with two cars stuck behind it, I decided I might as well slow down and keep back because I was going to end up stuck regardless. But some fool decides to come tearing up behind me, can't overtake and starts revving her engine at me. Of course we both ended up stuck behind the lorry regardless, so what's the point!?

Hahaha, I love this post and whole-heartidly agree. Though, I do need to work on my mumbling. :)

Hee hee.

Today's moan/pet peeve is when I went into my Mum's bathroom to discover the toilet seat up, sprinkling of urine on the toilet rim, bowl and floor care of our lovely builders. Yuk and GRR!

LOL at the tailgaters! I get so angry at them too, and sometimes I DO slow down just to bug them! :P
