What pisses me off

Christine is back for more with her regular WPMO column.

1. Today, while walking through the car park at the shopping centre, I could hear muffled barking. I had a feeling so I followed the bark – sure enough some idiot had left two little dogs in a car. The car was facing the sun, the windows were up but the doors were unlocked so I opened the door. I took them to get water and I left a note in the car saying, “Who let the dogs out? I did, I let the dogs out! They are at Centre Management and PS, people like you piss me off!

2. On morning television there is a lady that does the voice over for that Rumba circle vacuum cleaner. She has the most annoying high pitched, grate on my nerves voice that I have ever heard. It is impossible to describe how bad it is and it seriously pisses me off! Whoever hired her is obviously in need of industrial strength hearing aids!

3. The variations in price of Pump berry flavoured water. If I walk 24 steps, it is 80 cents cheaper and buying 3 to 4 every day, it adds up. I even contacted the makers and they said shops can charge whatever they want. It pisses me off!

4. I would like a man to walk in my back door every morning and make me breakfast. Of course he would need the skills of a barista, the cooking ability of Manu and the looks of Richard Gere and after breakfast he can go back out the door! Making breakfast pisses me off!

5. People that have enjoyed kicking me while I have been down: helloooooo, I am on my way back up! You have pissed off the wrong person. Forgive and forget? I am not Jesus Christ and I do not have Alzheimer’s.

6. Life Hack: Hack is a word that pisses me off, it is what Mum does every morning. She says she is clearing her throat but it sounds like she is going to bring up a lung. I never know if I should ring the ambulance or grab a bucket! I am fine with the word life though as I am quite fond of living and I would like to keep doing it for a while.

7. I remember when I had my dog, I bought him a $20 paddle pool and he would run round the back yard picking up all his 20 balls and drop them in the pool. He loved it but then the seasons changed. I brought the paddle pool inside and filled it with his blankets. He snuggled in but one night his affection for the pool took a sinister turn: I woke up to World War III in the lounge room! Dog blankets were everywhere. I could see an epic fight had gone down between my dog and the pool. My dog look proud as punch but when I saw the section of pool missing I knew the only winner in this war was going to be the vet. It cost me $350 to retrieve a small section of a $20 paddle pool. Vet Bills piss me off!

I am a 61-year-old dysfunctional child of a problem mother. I tend to look at the world with the philosophy "Laugh hard, you could be dead tomorrow!"

  1. Generally all of what you said I agree with. But making breakfast that’s my time to take and enjoy before some uncaring and belligerent person spoils my day. Can’t stand people who miss treat their pets.

  2. Love your comments!! Agree – especially re animals being left in cars. Should be able to lock the owners in the hot car and then see the hue and cry!! Keep up the enjoyable read.

  3. You always give me a laugh and i agree with you.

  4. Christine I think you should go back to bed and get out on the right side !

  5. Love it. You GO girl. The word Hack especially pees me off plus Aussies using Gotten and using a Z instead of an S (eg. compromiZe)

  6. I agree with you especially the woman in the rumba ad I just switch off when ever I hear that voice. At time’s I switch off the TV but mostly I just change channel. The ad people are only trying to get our attention they do that alright but that voice is just a switch off. I would never buy anything that woman promotes not because of the product but I just switch off and take no notice of what the product is or the contact details.

  7. jeeezus Christine, there are lots of things that piss you off…..is there anything that pleases you or gives joy to your day ?

  8. Nothing pisses me off…I don’t have time to be pissed off. I am too busy doing stuff I enjoy. Good friends, lots to do , kids doing OK , yep, life’s good…too good to spend it looking for things to be pissed of about.

  9. What pisses me off is——— Waiting in the only checkout at Coles or Woolies and some idiot asks me ” Would you like to come through the self service checkout.” NOOOOOOOOOOO,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Iwould just like someone to open another couple of checkouts please. NEVER HAPPENS THOUGH!!!!!

  10. That is my kind of lady true to herself telling it like it is.

  11. Good work with the dogs! The owners need to be locked in the car with the windows up and then charged with animal cruelty. Unfortunately, the Judiciary doesn’t bother with punishments for these creeps, they just get a slap on the wrist.

  12. whow…i hope it didn’t all annoy you in one day?
