Moan And Groan Time
Disclaimer : If you don't like to read about other peoples pet peeves THEN READ NO FURTHER !I am dedicating this post to the things that are on my very last nerve these days .
Where to begin ? Hum , mosquitoes maybe ? Yes , you read correctly . We have nice cool weather these days but still have jumbo jet size mosquitoes that would make the mosquitoes in Texas jealous ! I have killed maybe 10 tonight while sitting on the computer , well not really sitting on the computer , but you understand what I mean , right ? One would think that cool weather would kill the blood suckers off by now , but NO ! They are here to stay it seems .
This leads to another thing that is really making me angry ...... the SMOG/ SMOKE from the City burning trash late at night at the dump .It is a total health hazard . I woke up coughing my lungs out last night because the Condo was filed with smoke from the burning trash and this isn't the only time , sad to say . It happens a lot . You should have seen the smog hanging like a mourning pall , black, over the sea this morning . Made me wonder how many people this was effecting besides me .When the wind blows the smoke out to sea or in land, it isn't so bad , but on nights like last night , no wind , the smoke just stagnates until the sea winds come at dawn to blow it out and away from land .No one seems too concerned over this Green House Effect causing problem .
Next on the list are the people who are ill and still insist on co-mingling in the general population , spreading their JOY Of BEING ILL with all and sundry .That means that I am the one that ends up sick most of the time .UGH ! They want to ignore being sick . Pretending it isn't so bad , so they go out and VISIT people that are WELL , spreading their GERMS ! Even to newborn infants ! OMG ! What Are They Thinking ? Oh , I know ....... THEY AREN'T THINKING !!!
Here comes a BIG PET PEEVE ..... Why is it that in the summer , there are still some people here that would rather suffer the heat , than turn on the AC? Because they think they will get sick from the cold and maybe die. OK ..... then WHY are those the same people that in the WINTER OPEN ALL THEIR WINDOWS to let in the cold air .... BECAUSE the warm air from the heater will make them WHAT????? SICK ! OMG ! Somebody , any body , tell me where the logic of this thinking is found . ANYONE ? Save me PLEASE!
Here"s another one .... Why post a traffic policeman at a intersection , or anywhere else , to have them just ignor all traffic violations that are commited right under their faces ? What's the whole point ? Somebody ??
This one is plain weird..... there are no clothes for children ages 10-12 in their correct sizes here . As far as I know , in the last twenty years, there hasn't been any clothes that properly fit children in that age group . All kids go through that age and parents can't seem to find anything to fit them .Why is that ? They either have to wear clothes too small for them or too large . I felt so sorry for my youngest daughter when she was 10. I have a friend who's son is 10 and she can't find anything for him to wear this winter .When the new clothes come in to market , there are maybe 10 models for that size range . Needless to say , they go quickly .
Another thing ...... WHY can't the hardware stores sell washers for the faucets ? NO , they will sell you the whole entire faucet set , but ask for a washer and they look at you like you have a wart on your nose .They don't even stock them.More money , I know ... but still why do I have to buy an entire set just because I need a washer only ?
Just one more thing ..... dosen't anyone here know it is impolite to STARE at other peolpe ? In the Quran it is stated that you may have ONE look and only ONE LOOK . After that is it is just rude .
Hum , I think that just about covers it . I feel much better now .
