Such is life

Just about life as we know it

My Pet Peeves

What is a pet peeve? is a minor annoyance that a person identifies as particularly annoying to him or her, to a greater degree than others may find it. Defined by Wikipedia..

Here is my top 10 list of pet peeves:

  1. The little tag sticking out of one’s shirt
  2. Wearing a hat at the dinner table (home or restaurant)
  3. Ending a sentence with “Just Saying
  4. Parents who can’t take their screaming child out to the car but instead let them have a screaming fit inside a store.
  5. Parents let children stand up in shopping carts
  6. Press “2” for English
  7. People who wear pajamas to a store, same goes for slippers
  8. Asking for ketchup to go with my fries
  9. Drivers who don’t use turn signals
  10. Cell phone users having a loud conversation in a store~like everyone needs to hear their life story. Who cares!

I didn’t realize I had so many pet peeves and my list could keep going…

Why do the little things annoy so many of us? Because we have no control over controlling what other people do. If we did then we would have a perfect world and since we do not I guess we should live with it or look the other way.

Car Games to Pass the Time

My husband and I were out and about today and we were sitting in traffic and he announces “punch buggy orange no return “with a punch to the arm. Wow I said, “I didn’t see that buggy” and sure enough I look behind me and there was the orange bug convertible.

We got to talking about the car games we all have played with friends and family.

Who remembers playing PaDiddle, License Plate and Punch Buggy game? There are real rules and a point system for these games. If you haven’t played them look them up online and start playing. It’s a great pass time for the kids and the family if you are traveling by car going on vacation.

This brought back memories of my late childhood and from time to time my husband and I play the punch buggy game but there are very few old buggies around and the new buggies don’t count.

Be creative and have fun!

What was your favorite car game? Leave a comment and let me know.
