  • I hate that wasted another 10 minutes of my life getting caught up on the recent discussion. Effing Polkbook.
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Taxi drivers that pull u-turns without signaling and when they see you coming down the road and cut you off. Taxi drivers that reverse on one way streets so that they can go wait in line. I pretty much hate the way they drive in general.

    Come to Chicago, everyone drives like that. Comes down to a "when in Rome" thing. If you don't you'll get run over or cause an accident.

    "leave your shoes on" I swear if anyone ask me to take off my shoes again I am jsut leaving without saying a word. Just walk away, and maybe spit on the sidewalk.

    I hear you. Houses are meant to be LIVED in, not museums. I have a wierd foot thing; I hate dirty socks, can't do it. I don't go barefoot either unless I'm swimming. I'm a clean freak with my own personal habits, but we live comfortable in our home. Thats what brooms and mops are for.

    I DO have 1 rule, no smoking in the house. I smoke outside, so my guests can too. Don't like my house smelling like an ashtray. We do smoke in the garage and shop of course.

    I'm not against keeping my shoes on in the summer (I do it all the time), but not in the winter. I don't like water and salt marks all over my floor.

    No way anyone is leaving their shoes or boots on from November to March in my house. Chunks of rock salt and sand will destroy our hw floors. As mentioned above the puddles left behind too.

    No wearing shoes in my house period. I think I'm turning Japanese.

    Or Canadian. It's extremely rude to come into someone else's house with shoes on. My main floor I'm not so worried. Ceramic tile and hardwood. But the rest of the house is beige colored carpet.

    OH, and...."score keepers" Don't do something for someone if you're expecting pay back. It ruins the spirit of helping someone out---do it because you want to.

    Black Licorice - You old bastages love that crap and i can't figure out why.
    I took a shot of sambuca over the weekend. Absolute trash.

    What is wrong with you people...

    On a further note, i walked into my construction trailer this morning at five of 6am and there was a fruitcake sitting on my conference table. Why? I filed it in my 30yd dumpster.

    1. Snow “for every reason”
    2. Rabbits in the garden “sneaky lil buggers”
    3. My daughters cat “actually crapped on my chair once”
    4. Mr. Jingles “we have one every year in the house”
    5. The stupid cat “that won’t catch Mr. Jingles”
    6. That one consumer in line “who argues their 15 cents off coupon is actually good”
    7. Facebook “If we weren’t friends in grade school, we still aren’t”
    8. Being beat out on an auction by a dollar “because I got side tracked”
    9. Not pulling myself out of “this rabbit hole yet”
    10. Not taking my SDA’s to Trey!!

    This is a big one for me... My girlfriends dog. Big hairy, shed everywhere, bark all the time dumb dog. Gets in the garbage. Takes food off the table, chewed my glasses. Can't stand the thing. Don't get me wrong, I'm a dog lover, and have one. But hers is just horrible.

    I'm gonna teach it to roll over on the bbq :wink:
