What makes you want to IMPLODE and EXPLODE at the same time?
Things that bother me
Drivers who don’t use turn signals when changing lanes on the highway, especially when they pull right in front of me and leave about a hair’s width between my front bumper and their rear bumper.
Drawers left open. I don’t get it.
People who are in the #1 position at a stoplight who don’t GO when it turns green. They’re probably texting.
Getting slammed in the backs of my ankles with a shopping cart in line at the grocery store. I’ve found that hungry people can be very impatient.
Automated phone prompts and mechanical messages on customer service lines. I may be the exception, but I prefer to converse with human beings.
Note: These are some things that “bother” me, but don’t necessarily make me angry. Now on to my next list …
Things that make me angry
People who work very hard at their jobs and struggle to pay their bills.
Children left in day care centers and after-school programs because their parents have to work.
Companies who don’t provide benefits to their employees because they can get away with it.
People who are paid far less than what they’re worth.
Dreams and desires that are not being fulfilled.
Passions in life that are being ignored or put on hold for “some day” – which, of course, isn’t on the calendar.
Single parents who miss out on their children’s school activities, plays, performances, and sporting events because they’re the sole bread winners and can’t attend.
A lot of other things make me really angry, too – situations and circumstances that stand in the way of people designing a comfortable and enjoyable life for themselves.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of working my fingers to the bone to make the company and the boss rich.
It’s my turn. And it’s your turn, too!
