Daily Prompt: She Drives Me Crazy


Today’s WordPress Daily Prompt is “She Drives Me Crazy”.   Krista says,

It makes me crazy when people wear their shoes in my house. What habit/act drives you crazy? How do you prevent it from happening?

Upon reflecting on this directive, I’ve decided that I have quite a few things that drive me there, including people wearing shoes in my house! 😉   Here’s a list of some of my “biggies”:

  • Hypocrites – Seeing posts or hearing comments from people who act the exact opposite of how they tell me (or everyone else) to. (How to prevent it:  Avoid those people, I guess.)
  • Classes/Parties, etc. where I have to introduce myself in front of everyone and tell something about myself.  (My solution:  Don’t attend those parties.  For classes, I just have to get through it as quickly as possible.)
  • When I have an event/program/movie to attend and the people going with me are late and then proceed to dawdle and poke around so we are even later! (How to prevent it:  Give those people the tickets in advance and just meet them at the event.)
  • Finding a trash can that is (over) full with things spilling over the top because people (usually my kids) would rather stuff just ONE more thing in than empty it and put a new bag in. (How to remedy this:  Nag my kids, but usually I just end up ranting to myself like a crazy lady as I bundle the trash up and take it out to the garage. 😉 )
  • My cat getting into the cupboard and ripping open his cat food bag.  He’s done this sometimes when he still has food in his bowl!  (The solution:  Keep his food in a plastic container (but sometimes it just doesn’t quite all fit in there!))
  • Solicitors, both telephone and door-to-door.  It’s NEVER a good time for it!  I know, they’re just trying to make a living, but they do drive me crazy! (To prevent it, I can avoid answering my door and phone, but they’ll just come back or call back if I don’t, so I usually just deal with them at the time.)
  • The seemingly endless winter we’ve had this year!!!  I REALLY hope that after the blizzard conditions today that the weather will start to give us more nice days than nasty ones. (Unfortunately, I have no control over this one.   Wouldn’t it be nice, though?!)

I have more that I could add, but I’ll stop there for now.  I know that I’m probably on the other end of some people’s “crazy” lists, and because of that I try to be tolerant! 😉   Here’s hoping your Monday is as crazy-free as it can be! 🙂
