What Irritates Me...

There are always things that irritate me...I get irritated on a daily basis and most times later that day I can laugh about it. But let's give this some thought...What really irritates you? Do noisy neighbors irritate you, they do me. I mean how rude can someone be, right?

What about kids at the movie theatre? Babies at the movies? Who in the 9th gate of hell takes their young baby to a movie where the speakers are going to be blasting only to get their kid crying and make everyone else in the theatre pissed off. Believe me, it's happened. Which is why I no longer got to the movies. I would rather pay $6 for On Demand and be able to eat what the hell I want and not have to listen to crying babies or have kids kicking the back of my chair.

But, there are people who bring little kids to loud, violent rated "R" films and then spend half the movie trying to calm down the terrified kid. Do they think this is a friggin playground? I would imagine that the very last person you want to piss off is someone watching a slasher movie and that, my stupid, breeding friends, is me! Take the kid outside - he obviously doesn't want to be here!

Now let's switch gears and talk about going to the store...People who get all dressed up to do a little grocery shopping and bring their kids with their crusty noses, dirt rings around their necks, faded dirty clothes with jello spots the size of a boulder right on the front, and bare dirt crusted feet. I consider this a form of child abuse. These parents should be horsewhipped.

Now I was watching Judge Judy the other day and my husband gets so mad at her when a defendant is trying to explain something and says, "Um." Then Judge Judy will says, "Um is not an answer". LOL

Hey the English language has taken a real beating in recent years with the advent of "liketalk"... I don't know what else to call it. What I thought was a passing fad - the typical American teenager's faddish interjection of the word "like" into every single sentence has become so rampant it is a disease. Even thirty year olds and business executives talk this way! "Like" is used not only as "um" is used, a chronic and useless interrupter - it actually takes the place of adjectives, nouns, imagination, intelligence, etc. etc. etc.

For instance, you no longer have to say,"She was furious at me.."You just say, "She was like "aaaaaghh! "No need for such tedious sentences as "He said, I'll take care of it." Now it's "He was LIKE I'll take care of it" So you see there's no past tense any more, there's just the pea-brained characterization of any event, any shade of meaning, past, present or future, relevant or irrelevant, as "LIKE" Now when you combine that with the word "ALL" and the incomprehensibly ever rising popularity of the word "shit", you have something approaching the deterioration of our daily discourse to the most atrocious and stupid sounding toilet talk:

Here goes!: Instead of: "Maggie told me last week how much he enjoyed the Music artist Aerosmith" She said he could listen to it all day and not get tired of it..." We now can say, "Aerosmith?" "Maggie was all like, 'That's the shit!" WHAT HAS HAPPENED?

I think some people need to go back to school and take second grade English all over again, because they have obviously forgotten what they learned.
