So, day 10 of the 30 day blogging challenge! I don’t think I am doing too bad a job at blogging every day bearing in mind I have a little munchkin keeping me busy too.
Todays challenge is one I’ve been looking forward to, lets face it who doesn’t love a rant! Hold on to your knickers ladies cause I’m about to go off on one:
Top 5 Bug Bears
So, in no particular order:
… more often than not BMW drivers. I hate to say it but every time I encounter a BMW driver then seem intent on either driving right up the arse of my car or overtaking at the most idiotic part of a road they see fit! The fact my husband decided he now wants to buy a BMW hasn’t gone down too well in our house!
But seriously, it’s not just BMW drivers. There are just some absolute idiot drivers in general which is especially worrying when you’ve got your baby in the car. I like to think of myself as quite a considerate driver; I let people out of junctions and always appreciate those that thank you for doing so. So why is it some people find the simple function of raising a hand in thanks so much effort! Drives me mad – a quick flash of the lights to acknowledge I’ve let you out, that’s all I’m asking! On the other side of the coin are those people who fly out of junctions at a dangerously close point to you as though they are in a mad rush, only to then brake and dawdle along for the rest of your journey; why did you pull out so dangerously if you aren’t in a rush! Annoying
And final point, indicators are on your car for a reason! Bloody use them!
Unwanted Parenting Advice
OK, I may sound like a bitch now but I guarantee most of you will get this. “I know it’s easy for me to say but you need to do this…” Yes it is easy for you to say, you aren’t the one who is exhausting and losing the plot cause she’s been up all night with a screaming baby! I know most advice is given with the best of intentions but sometimes it can make you want to lose your shit in the most spectacular way! I’ve even had friends borderline scold me telling me I really should have done things a certain way and therefore making you feel like a bit of a failure! Not cool. Even better, the advice you get from those who don’t even have children. Very f**king annoying. Yes you mean well, but you don’t have a clue. When you have a baby up half the night, every night, then you can tell me how to soothe him/dress him/feed him. When you know the utter hell that is sleep deprivation, then you can give me advice!
**Disclosure – I do love all my friends and family for their help and advice – don’t take this personally if you read it – if you’re a mummy too, you’ll understand it**
She came, She spread her legs, She conquered!! She had her “private sex tape leaked” and for all this she became a global icon for women and girls every where all whilst flashing her enormous arse and most recently her noonie! Find some self respect. If any other woman was all over the internet shagging her other half she’d be torn to shreds, yet this woman is celebrated, adored and managed to get on the cover of Vogue. Egotistical tit!
However I do quite like Khloe – I admire her “take no shit” attitude
Passive Aggressive Facebook Status
It goes like this:
Status: “Such a bad day” to which a friend comments “whats up hun” to which they reply “I’ll DM you hun”.
Then why did you put that status on Facebook at all! If you’re not going to enlighten us all to whats wrong then why bother! Attention seeking and annoying. Just do what I do and go off on a rant; at least it’ll entertain your Facebook friends!
I’ve also been on the receiving end of coded Facebook status’s. For example a friend will put “Why must people document their pregnancy on Facebook – keep it private”. I actually had this from an old school friend; she couldn’t understand why I had posted pictures of my bump throughout pregnancy and told me she found it self indulgent. I had taken those pictures to share with friends and family who live hundreds of miles away from me and were missing seeing my ever changing bump! But if you don’t like it don’t follow my Facebook. And grow some balls and tag me in your bitchy status if you’ve got something to say rather than the whole “why must people do this…..”
Lack of Manners
This is one that is probably on most peoples lists! But it really takes nothing to say please or thank you. How many times have you moved aside to let someone past only for them to just stroll by without even acknowledging you, or held a door open for someone and they just sail through like they’re royalty and above saying thank you for this! It drives me mad and I am prone to the odd sarcastic “you’re welcome” said loudly as they retreat!! It takes nothing more than a second to deliver a please or thank you, it’s such a simple but priceless thing and something we’ve all had drummed into us since childhood so it baffles me that people don’t adhere to it.
So there we have it those are my top 5 bug bears! Of course there are tonnes of other annoying niggly things that drive me mad…..:
- Doctors Receptionists – the anti christ! Rude, intimidating and yet they expect you to divulge every personal aspect of your illness only for them to refer you for a telephone call with the on call doctor
- Pubs/bars that don’t sell prosecco – absolute fucking joke
- The 50 million leaflets you get inside magazines
- Courtesy calls from banks/insurers to check you’re happy with the service – yes I was till you decided to call the second I got my baby to sleep
- Bus drivers – grumpy nutters!
- People walking in front of you really slowly then just stopping – MOVE!!!!!!!
- Bear Grylls – I don’t get it! Why put yourself through all that shit. Stop drinking your own piss and just book a hotel!
- When supermarkets have something you really want on offer but it runs out cause they never have enough stock !
- Snooty girls who work in clothes stores. You’re working in Zara love, not Dior, so stop looking down your nose at me when I’m trying on those skinny jeans which even at the age of 32 (ancient to you) I will rock!
- Ashley Cole. Dick
Right that’s it I will stop ranting! I hope this post made you laugh a bit at least.
Back tomorrow with a more mild mannered challenge:
Favourite foods and why
