A Career Woman and A Housewife

Here's the deal, this our blog... This is where we come to write about our lives. The Good. The Bad. The Ugly. And of course, The Beautiful. We welcome anyone to come on in, take a look around and have a few laughs. Nothing makes us happier than nice comments and finding a new BLOG friend. If you can't handle what we have to say, just leave quietly and pretend you've never been here...We will retaliate.

Things That Annoy Me

1. First and foremost, I am annoyed that I am forced to write about something so dull and negative like Things That Annoy Me. PLEASE GOD, LET SOMETHING NEW, FUN AND EXCITING HAPPEN TO ME SO I CAN WRITE A POST WORTHY OF READING!

2. I am annoyed that Huggies Pull-ups come in a package of 29....twenty-nine.....WHY? It's packaged in air-tight plastic, surely they could have put one more stinkin' pull-up in there to make an even 30. I'm writing them a letter!

3. I am annoyed by fast food restaurants that do not have drive-throughs. HELLO fast food restaurant, if I am eating fast food, chances are I am in a HURRY. My ass does not have time to park my car, unload my kids, go inside, stand in line, order my food, wait for my food, pour my own drinks, juggle the exit door with my food and my kids in hand, find my car keys while walking through a busy parking lot (again while holding small hands and my food), unlock my door and get the food in the car with out spilling drinks on my seats, and then load the kids up again. GET A DAMN DRIVE-THROUGH!

3. I am annoyed by DVDs that do not allow you to skip or fast forward through FBI Warnings and Previews. Need I say more.

4. I am annoyed by unknown callers on my caller ID, I can accept private numbers, I can accept blocked numbers, but I do not pay you, Phone Company, to tell me UNKNOWN when my phone rings. This is defeating the purpose of Caller ID!

5. I am annoyed by drastic weather changes. I grew up learning there were 4 seasons: Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter. Lately we have been experiencing, Spring, Winter, Summer, Winter, Fall, Winter, Winter, Summer, Winter. Let's get with the program here!

6. I am annoyed by Breaking News about the Red Sox. When I sit down at 1:00 to watch my show, I expect to see my show. This is the one hour of salvation I get in my day. It is one hour that I can rejoice in guilty pleasure and usually get my children to settle down while they eat. When I sit on my couch at 1:00 I want to see Days of Our Lives, Channel 7 News, not the MF'n RED SOX! Save it for ESPN, if I want to hear about sports, I'll put on ESPN. And please tell me what can possibly be so important about the Red Sox, that you have to interrupt a regularly scheduled program with your big ole' Breaking NEWS music and then talk about a damn baseball team for 20 minutes. Unless the Red Sox have an evil plan to blow up the city of Boston, I don't want to hear about, K. It's NOT Breaking NEWS.

7. I am annoyed that it is near impossible to have pretty nails and children under the age of 4 at the same time. If I could go 1 day without breaking or snagging a nail and not chipping NO-CHIP nail polish, I would not have to be so annoyed. Therefore, I am annoyed by the NO-CHIP nail polish that chips!

8. I am annoyed by the big bag of greasy patato chips sitting in my cupboard, calling my name.

9. I am annoyed by dumb people who assume that I am an unintelligent low-life because I am a stay-at-home mom. Well, here's some Breaking NEWS for Channels 7 to air during my soap opera, just because I chose to stay home and raise my own flesh and blood and not give away half of my pay from some high end corporate job to a daycare where some complete stranger gets to see my children learn and grow everyday. And if you ask me it's the women that sit behind a desk, kissing peoples asses all day when they should be home caring for their children that are probably starving for their mother's attention, that are the frickin' low-lives. Don't look down on me, bitch. Do something that really matters in life, raise your damn kids instead of answering phones and crunching numbers for some company that can give a fuck about you.

10. I am also annoyed that I can't think of a 10th thing that annoys me and I don't want to have a list of 9 things, cause if I did, than I'd be no better than the dumb asses at Huggies that put only 29 Pull-ups in a package.

Tell me what annoys you.
(huh, that was just asking for an anonymous commenter to tell me that I annoy them, bring it on!)

    Oh I'm gonna "bring it on." hahaha. So funny, I was never annoyed by Huggies, or by people who feel as though I should be "housewife," but I am annoyed by
    1. People who tell me that I am dumb.
    2. That no mean anonymous person has posted anything mean under our pictures... hello, that is when we do our best work!
    3. That the damn "waste of educators" at Duquesne have not phoned me regarding my "lack of evaluation."
    4. That the I have one week of break, then on to summer courses at that asshat university I got.
    5. My paper cut hurts me and I don't know where it came from.
    6. My new coach purse won't zip the whole way and I'm afraid to make it, b/c God forbid I break the zipper.
    7. My hair keeps tickling my nose and face today because it is ugly today and stupid today and dumb today (apparently like me).
    8. Mirella has not posted anything fun in like a gazillion years.
    9. I do not have a digital camera (can someone just freakin' buy the f-er for me?)
    10. I am totally annoyed that my skankest is in Boston without me!

    1. The president choosing to talk about asbestos reform? during my Thursday night television shows (or any show really).
    2. DVD's rented from Blockbuster that won't play on my DVD player because they are so scratched up, you would think that a cat was using them as play toys.
    3. The phone cord under my desk which I keep accidentally pulling out of the wall because my legs are too long and when I stretch, the cord somehow wraps itself around my feet and legs.
    4. People with 4X4 trucks so large they could roll over my little 2 door Honda Civic without even feeling it stopping before going over every speed bump in the parking lot. Hello, that's what the damn thing was made for.
    5. People who ride your ass on the highway when you are clearly going 20 MPH over the speed limit but can not change lanes due to other traffic. Then, that same asshole finally passes you only to slow down to a speed less than what you were originally travelling, right in front of you so you have to wait for an opportunity to pass you. I wish everyone had a "How am I driving" bumper sticker with an 800 number. But for now the finger works.
    6. Chuck E Cheese..I think everyone knows what I mean and I'm surprised neither Career Woman or Housewife mentioned this.
    7. The cell phone of the woman who sits next to me. It's bad enough you are taking 20 personal calls at work, but learn how to use "VIBRATE" for crying out loud.
    8. The weather. I want WARM. It's lile mother nature is taking on the role of a tease. Gives us a little tast but won't give up the goods.
    9. Newport Elementary School. Those bastards said that my daughter (who misses the cutoff date by 7 friggen days) that in order for them to accept her, she will need to test at a 2nd grade level. Now, if she tested at a 2nd grade level, don't you think I would want to put her in 2nd grade? And today's second grade is equal to my generations 5th grade.
    10. Running out of toothpaste, not realizing it, and attempting to brush teeth in the morning in a rush because you are running 20 minutes late. Then going to the Rite Aid to get some mouthwash or something so you don't kill people with your breath and realizing you forgot your wallet.

    Career Woman,
    I'm annoyed at Mirella too. Let's send her hate mail.

    I completely agree with your #5!
    Every time I think I'm having a bad day, I'll just re-read your #10 LOL

    11. that my weather button on my mozilla window tells me that the forecast for tomorrow is N/A, but for sunday, it says rainy. you either make a prediction and it comes true, or it doesn't...but for the love of god, the weather can't be n/a!!!

    I am annoyed with myself for cutting myself off from the internet for a whole 9 days. Did I not think of the insane amount of blog catching up and email reading that would have to be done upon my return? I am such a 'tard.

  • At 2:04 PM, Blogger The Dirty South said…

    my list is on my blog...


  • At 10:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    How did they resolve the issue? Did you have to call them or email them?
