Nothing in particular mind you-but I’m getting a bit sick of
hearing the stupidity of people in general.
1-People who abuse and neglect their children. I’m imagining most people hate these poor
excuses for human beings.
2-I’m sure you can guess-those awful people who abandon and
Both children and pets are not necessities-they’re joys and
privileges. If you don’t want or can’t
go through with the care and feeding of them-just admit it and be a person who
3-People who have nothing to say about others beliefs except
Excuse me, our country was built on being a melting pot of
diversity. Rather than denigrate
others-learn what they’re about! I’m not
saying that you have to agree-but all of us have something to learn from those
who believe and think differently than us.
It’s not a crime to have an opposite viewpoint.
4-I’m not going to eat bugs and things, but being a foodie-I
think we should all be open to trying new cultural dishes. Whether it’s a new herb or spice, cooking
method, protein or switching up to trying a savory soup for breakfast rather
than a bowl of cereal!
5-Neighbors who refuse to even say hello. I don’t know about your block but we’ve been
here for almost a year and do you know we haven’t even seen the face of anyone
who lives next door? Not one person came
over and introduced themselves. Our son
said we had it easy!
Last year Sam’s mom sent her birthday flowers that were
delivered next door since they weren’t home.
When they went to retrieve the gift-the neighbor rudely gave them the
bouquet and said, “this isn’t a good time to introduce ourselves.” And with that he shut the door. So far, it has never been a good time.
I thought that once I started walking Lucky I’d finally get
acquainted with some of the other pet parents.
One lady with an older Goldie mix that looked slightly like Sunshine was
quite nice-but I only saw her the one time.
A man was at the mailbox with his pooch a few weeks ago and when I said
“hi”, he nodded and turned away.
Really? Is it that
hard for people to say hello? I was told
by another woman (she talked to us because it turned out she was a teacher’s
aide in Dylan’s class last year) that we should be receiving an invite to a
block party by mid-month. “They do it
every year so we can meet all the newbies and form a better neighborhood
watch.” When I mentioned that we closed
escrow October 4th of last year and my husband never saw any such
invitation-she looked puzzled.
That’s my rant for the week.
I’m sure if I wanted to sit here and think harder I’d come up with more.
Oh wait-number 6 pet peeve.
People who have pet peeves.
