Things not to say to me.

I have a few things people say that annoy the hell out of me.  I thought I'd share them with you and we can compare notes!

1. It was in the the last place I looked.  Seriously?  Are you sure?  Good job hitting the brakes after you found whatever you were looking for!  You've earned a sticker!

2. I don't mean to be rude, but... Yes you do, but you think saying that stops you from looking like a giant douche, but you're incorrect.

3. Have you ever thought about... When someone says this to me I know I'm about to get asked something that's going to piss me off.

4. In my humble opinion... If you have ever uttered that sentence, go smack yourself.

5. It must be nice to not have to go to work everyday. I wouldn't know, I have three kids and a husband.

6. You are so stubborn.  Is that what we're calling having an opinion that differs from yours?

7. Americans are so... You don't like being an American?  Let me help you pack your bags!

8. Rules were meant to be broken.  The only people who say this are people who do shit they shouldn't.  Kind of like the only people who hate cops are people who do stuff that's against the law. 

9. Look it up. You know what?  Go f*** yourself!

10. Can you not use swear words when you post? I have small children around the computer.  If my 2 1/2 year old or 18 month old could read piss, shit, hell, and damn off my computer screen I'd be high five-ing them, because I'd have freaking geniuses on my hands. 

So, what are some phrases that drive you nuts??  


  1. I LOVE the response to the old "You don't work" comment, that is genius!!! I don't like anything with "should" in it. I also don't like "have you ever thought about" or it's cousin "What if you tried". Thank you! This was fun to read and fun to think about!

  2. I forgot to mention that I love your re-design, very pretty!

  3. LOL Awesome! We have a lot of the same irritations. I hate when people start off with, "Not to be rude.." or "No offense.." Because it's rude and offensive and they're just looking for an out. How about, if it's rude or you think I'm going to be offended you just shut the hell up, mmkay?

    And that "last place I looked" thing has ALWAYS bugged me. LOL Of COURSE you found it in the last place you looked, idiot - you stopped looking after you found it!

  4. ROFL I love this post! The "I don't want to be rude... but" drives me insane too. If you don't to be rude, then stop there, keep your mouth closed. It's the same with "I don't to put you out" "I don't want to get in the way". Well then don't LOL.

    The "last place I looked" one. If my son said he's lost something I say "it will be in the last place you will look"

    Great Post!

  5. When the kids speak in text to me. "OMG, mom!" "LOL, mom." "Mom, IDK" That annoys me:)

  6. I admit to labeling Americans a particular way.. I guess its because I affilate myself as a citizen of the world, not of any one particular nationality. : ) I hope I don't piss you off too much!!

  7. again .. you are too funny! love your honesty


Enthrall Me.
