things that make me crazy

It makes me crazy when chicken wings are called buffalo wings. I don't know about you, but I don't want to eat a buffalo.  haha! j/k But still, I call them hot wings.

It makes me crazy that The Scooter Store emails me every day.  I always send it to my spam folder.  It never fails. They send the email I'm pretty sure I don't need a scooter.

It makes me crazy when people say, " I had spaghetti tonight."  Oh ok, so you just had dry spaghetti? Spaghetti is a type of pasta. How boring to sit down and eat a big bowl of dry spaghetti with no sauce.  It should be I had spaghetti with tomato sauce, or meat sauce. Now you know.

It makes me crazy when people say "Exspecially." It is especially.

It makes me crazy when people say "ATM machine."  It is an automated teller machine.  Not an automated teller machine machine.

It makes me crazy when people put seasonings on meat while on the grill.  It burns right off.  If you want the meat to have flavor marinate it. Marinating takes 30 minutes or longer and it happens before you cook the meat.

It makes me crazy when a waiter or waitress says, "No problem."  I ask for a refill on my water and they say "No problem!"  Well why would it be a problem?  It is your job.

It makes me crazy when my kids give me that blank stare.  I ask Layla or Hayden for help with a task and they just stand there as if I am talking in another language.  Uggh!

It makes me crazy when people don't RSVP.  It doesn't even have to be a super fast response.  I'll even accept a few days before the event, but to not even respond.  RUDE.  I'm not perfect.  I have not responded before, but I am working on this!

It makes me crazy when people are so negative all the time.  I can see every once in awhile we all have bad days and very sad things happen in our lives.  We need our friends and family to help lift our spirits.  BUT every single day:  another sob story.  It makes me crazy when people want to create silly drama for themselves.  My honest opinion.... I think life is what we make of it.  I take a bad day and make it good.  I don't want to hang out with negative people and I'm sure no one else does either.

So what makes you crazy on this steaming HOT happy hump day?

Oh no, I say buffalo wings AND spaghetti. Can you unsubscribe to the scooter store? Is that the store on TV for older people. I do say ATM, not ATM machine. Yes, always takes like two seconds...drives me crazy.
I get annoyed when people add an S to the end of a Krogers (it's Kroger!!!) or I even have a friend who says Red Lobsters...burns me up!

Yay! I wouldn't drive you crazy. I don't do anything on your list!!!

It drives me crazy when people (like my boys & hubby) leave the light on after leaving a room. Grrrrr!!!

I too have a hard time dealing with people are constantly negative! I feel like happiness is a choice so its hard relate to those who feel like there is honestly nothing to smile about! Oh and about EXPESCIALLY, as a kid, that was THE hardest word for me to get right and it drove my Dad crazy! I pronounced it either like that or with an A (aspecially!) Well glad I finally got it right ;)

WTH is everyone so dang happy? I just went to the Olive Gardens and had spaghetti...wanted baffalo chicken, but they was out. The waitress says to me "no problem" after I thanked her for showing me where the atm machine was. Then I just gave her that blank stare!!!

I so agree on the ATM one! I worked in banking for five years & that drove me CRAZY! Same thing with "PIN number". Even bank recordings say it! PIN=personal identification NUMBER

I always say spaghetti too, but I'll say that's a product of my raising.

I say we had spaghetti for dinner:) I never thought to add the part about the meat sauce! That little quote is awesome. I hate when people create drama just to be the center of attention. And LOL at Gary's comment:)
