06-01-2018 Things That Really Bore Me!   Leave a comment

In the past I’ve created lists of things I love and things I hate.  After roaming around for the last few months and people watching it occurred to me that another category needed to be documented.  Here is my list of things that have morphed from ‘Things That Annoy Me’ to ‘Things That Bore Me’.

* * *

Drug companies and their endless advertisements to cure damn near everything. In most cases you’d need a small mortgage to pay for them but at least the side effects are free.

Organic labeling normally just pisses me off but I’ve come to realize if people are stupid enough to buy the “organic” song and dance then there’s nothing I can do. To quote one of my favorite comics, Ron White . . .  You can’t fix stupid!

Anyone named Obama or Bush. No further explanation is needed or wanted.

AARP Mailings. I refuse to belong to any organization of liberal leaning seniors that enjoys sucking up to the Dems for more government handouts. You’d think that their current government subsidies would be enough.

Any bumper sticker that insists on telling me things I could care less about. I don’t really care what your children are doing or where they’re doing it. It’s just more eye litter.

SPAM in all it’s forms.

Verizon Wireless and their need to call me ten times a week because I’m now eligible for an upgrade on my cell phone. I’ve already blocked 26 of their numbers but they continue to annoy me from every state in the country.

Hilary Clinton and her endless health problems, her endless mental problems, and of course her endless marital problem, WILD BILL.

Maxine Waters. It’s time for a rubber room and a straight jacket for this wingnut.

The Maine Stream Media in all of it’s manifestations.

George “I Want to be King of the World.” Soros.

Trump Bashing.

Trump Bashers.

Hollywood idiots voicing their opinions about what they think on every topic except their acting, singing, or dancing.

Tipping waiters and waitresses when I’m now doing most of their work. Table computers are fine if I can cut my normal tip in half. All the waitresses do these days is deliver the meal and smile pretty. I think that’s worth no more than a 3 percent tip.

Facebook and Twitter. They should really be on the list of things that annoy me but they bore me as well.

The egocentric morons who frequent most retail stores and are always in line at the register directly in front of me.  Where’s my stun gun when I need it.

Bait and Switch is one of the oldest and most misleading types of advertisement. It seems to have become much more commonplace that ever before.

Men talking to me while we’re standing at a urinal. I guess they don’t fully understand how focused I need to be while peeing. Talking is OK I guess but no peeking please.

Cell phone ringtones. Enough already . . . I don’t give a shit that you got email. Put it on vibrate moron.

Facial tattoos. It’s an instant judgement call when I see a person with them. Idiot, dumb ass, or moron, take your pick.

The new and improved Leggings fad. I admit that in many cases they just make my day but whatever you do don’t go into Walmart. You could be struck blind if you’re lucky.

Baseball caps worn backward. Any idiot that still thinks this is cool should get a free facial tattoo.

Homeless beggars. I hesitate giving money or cans to someone who is supposedly poor and unemployed while he’s wearing a better pair of Nike shoes than I have.

President Trumps continual tweeting. Just ridiculous.

Katy Perry. Sing a song, leave the stage, marry an asshole, cut off your hair, and then tell me what a political moron I must be for not supporting Hilary. God women . . . Get a frigging life.

Sex with lifelike robots. Only two terms comes to mind immediately, “Organ Grinder” and “Ex Wife”. Way too scary for me. Thanks but no thanks. Yikes!!!

I have a few things that really bother me. I’m sure you do as well just like everyone else. I try not to let them make me too crazy but there are times I could just scream.  Nothing really too earth shattering but just a number of little things that nag at me when I have time to sit and think about them. See if you agree.

Vegans – Why do certain people think that  refusing to eat meat or fish makes them special.  To be a true vegetarian and to stay healthy requires taking vitamin supplements.  I love veggies as much as the next guy but only a fool could believe all the hype we’re constantly hearing.  Get a clue people. Human beings are classified as omnivores for a reason.  We’ve developed to the top of the food chain because of our ability to survive and flourish by eating a variety of both meats and vegetables.  Extremes of any kind tend to be a problem for me and this is the perfect example. Oh yeah one more thing,  if you’ve ever spent any time at all around Vegans you know their farts are the worst.  Eat a burger stinky.

Organic food – This may be the biggest scam going.  Slapping an organic label on just about anything gives companies the right to increase prices by at least thirty percent.  I’m enough of a skeptic to believe that no checking is really done to verify those claims.  Maybe in the future when I make homemade salsa, pickles, apple butter, and other products I’ll label them as organic.  It wouldn’t be totally true but who cares.  It’s all about making certain people feel like their eating healthy and making them pay for the privilege.

Pre-owned Cars – This is politically correct BS that just makes me crazy.  Truth in advertising be damned.  A freaking used car is a freaking used car. It’s not pre-owned or anything else.  I suspect that once used cars became pre-owned the price just may have suddenly increased overnight.  I’d like to meet the fast talking used car salesman that came up with that idea.  He should be arrested and then beaten severely about the head and shoulders.

Decaf Coffee – I watched a middle aged and reasonably intelligent looking guy order a decaf coffee at a local donut shop recently and then watched the cashier write on the cup "Decaf".  He immediately told the cashier to add a turbo shot of expresso to it as well.  He must  be married to a woman who requires him to drink only decaf coffee which will help him live fifteen minutes longer.  He takes this approach so he can show her the cup to verify his purchase of decaf.  If people realized how most decaf coffee was made they’d never drink it again.  If you’re going to drink decaf, why bother drinking coffee at all.

Jehovah Witnesses – I’m not religious and having these folks show up unannounced and uninvited on my door step just pisses me off.  For years I’d just tell them to go away and stop bothering me.  Then I wised up and decided to play along with their routine.  On one occasion I was dressed only in a pair of shorts on one hot summer afternoon. A young man and a young woman showed up and I cordially invited them in. As I sat there half naked listening to a few minutes of their bible readings I then went into my routine. I began asking them for all kinds of sexual advice since I was having serious problems with both my wife and my mistress.  They were gone within minutes and I was never visited again while I lived there. It was fun too!

Push Up Bras – Let me qualify this one a little. I love shapely women or should I say I’ve loved shapely women but the trend these days with push-up bras is out of control.  The last thing I need to see is a fourteen year old teenage girl who has yet to develop hips running around with what little boobs she has pushed up until they’re damn near rubbing on her chin. Just as bad are the adult women who shall we say are well endowed to start with but then wear a push-up bra to make it creepy and nasty looking.  Stop the madness girls. Being a bit more subtle is way more sexier than what we’re seeing now.

These are just a few of the things that make me a little crazy.  I’ll bet anything that if you’re honest with yourself your list is much longer than mine.  Does my whining help fix these issues, not a chance. I have to admit it makes me feel a whole lot better venting to you.
