Top 5 Peeves Today

marvin.gif I haven’t done a list in a while so here’s my top 5 for this week. Add your own peeves by leaving a comment.

1. People who quit halfway through a Risk game. (I feel like I’ve said this before.)

2. My laptop and the evil programs that run in the background and slow me down or freeze me up.

3. The car full of people on a site-seeing trip who always finds a way to get in front of me when I’m in a hurry to get somewhere.

4. Experts. In general. Except doctors. And plumbers.

5. Those who’ve locked up their brains in the pursuit of an open mind or those who’ve closed their minds because they know the “truth”. (In both cases I’ve met people who just had spectacularly low I.Q.s and that group of people doesn’t peeve me at all.)

Hmmm. Each of these have reminded me of stories that I might get to write about later.

Feel free to add your own Peeve to the list or come up with your own Top 5 Peeves and leave it in the comments section.

    i got a blog!!!

  5. brianmpei says:

    Finley, if it’s your baby the dingoes ate just change your info on the “leave a comments” to include your blog address and then we can all read it. Nice list. However, being from the North I’m of two minds about global warming. The old part of me says, “bring it on!” but the part of me that owns property at sea level is pretty scared.

    I completely agree with Sweetly’s #5 and dingoes #5.

    people who think everyday is a holiday
    old people on drugs
    kids who play too many videogames and often use “cheapies”
    animals, monsters, and aliens
    played out music, played out perspectives

    3. Looooooong fingernails

    Dingoes, you’re at http://www.dingoesatemybaby.wordpress.com
    Send an email to all your friends and anyone you’ve ever emailed and tell them all to check out your blog.

    Nancy – nice list. I’m afraid I’m the king of over-estimation and so the king of #4 on your list. I’m constantly promising things from my heart that my life is unable to deliver. I’m trying to improve!

  10. Nancy says:

    Sorry, broken promises were not ment for you. Just a peeve in general.
    And we all need to improve.
    I reeeeally enjoy your stories, etc.

  11. brianmpei says:

    Thanks Nance, didn’t take it as a shot at me, just identified with your #4, it’s something I’m working on. Thanks for the life that’s led to the stories.
