Crazy He Calls Me!

Cubby tagged me. Bitch!

These are the rules of the game: You must write a journal entry listing the 5 things that drive you CRAZY ~ as well as the rules of the game... Then, you select five people to tag and link their names/blogs in your entry... Go to their journals and leave a comment informing them they have been tagged by you and to read your journal to see in what way they have been nailed...! Those five then MUST write an entry listing What drives them crazy and tag an additional five people...

What Drives Me Crazy!!!!
1.) People who talk on mobile phones in public and make sure everyone is hearing their inane conversation, "Yo, I'm on the jitney...yea...yea...uh huh...yea...what?...What?...WHAT?...oh...yea...yea...I told you, I'm on the jitney...yea...". I just want to take the bloody thing and cram it right up their unimportant ass!
2.) When people justify how open minded they are with the phrase, "I have black/gay/Asian/whatever friends!". So what. Saying something prejudicial about a group of people and then trying to justify yourself by claiming to have friends of that group means you are NOT their friend.
3.) Bad fashion. People, just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it. It's like putting toothpaste back into the tube.
4.) Bad manners. I cannot abide rudeness. It only takes a second to say "please" or "thank you" or "may I" or "excuse me". I hate being told to give something. And then they wonder why I say, "Fuck you!"
5.) Narrowmindedness. It boggles my open mind that people just WILL NOT listen to another point of view. They will not entertain that they may be wrong, or that two people can be right about the same thing, just different. I can't fathom how they get through life. I can be stubborn but, I do listen and I do think about things, and I have changed my mind on many subjects (case in point, the Iraqi War. I actually think it's necessary, now).

I am not tagging anyone.

  1. I adore you for not tagging people, especially me : )

    1. I seldom run across unimportant cell phone users in my daily rounds but ... recently while having a very high energy conversation with a few girls at work over lunch, someone asked me if I would mind keeping it down because she was trying to make a call. I (nicely) asked if she really thought the lunch room was her own private phone booth and suggested she step outside.

    2. I pay little attention to people that have prejudicial opinions unless they are leaders of sorts and their opinion is affecting the opinion of other people that I know.

    3. LOL ... It's like putting toothpaste back into the tube?

    4. How about ... Excuse me, I just wanted to say Fuck You. Thank you very much.
    BTW ... You'll never hear me say the "F" word. LOL.

    5. OK, now you're talkin`. Narrow-mindedness is the number 1 thing that makes me crazy and in my opinion is the biggest threat we face in this country. As strong as independent as we have always fought to be, we are now completely divided 49% - 51% at last official count. We are so deeply pitted against each other these days that no one can ever seem to do anything right. Who needs enemys in other countrys when we have each other?

    I have changed my mind on many subjects (case in point, the Iraqi War. I actually think it's necessary, now).

    I would really like to talk about this when you get a chance. You know where to find me.

  2. I totally agree with every single one on your list! Of all the journals I read that had this done, yours is the only one that had a whole list of things that would similarly drive me crazy. Wow, awesome!!

  3. But some of my best friends are gay, black, disabled, elderly folks so how could that joke be offensive? ha ha ha

    I am also big on manners. I vice president at my formal job who hated me saying yes and no ma'am to her and told me to stop doing it. I couldn't help it.

    I also hold the door open for strangers and love watching their reactions.
