Getting your goat….. Meme!
Kate’s post on iRamble got me thinking….
It’s always intrigued me when people have an irrational hatred of something, what caused it? Some things are just downright irritating, for example I get really annoyed by blister packs for things… Alright I know the thieves can’t get into them and steal the product – but I can’t get into the damned things either!!!
So here’s the meme, list two things that irritate you for a reason (and list the reason!), and two things that irritate you for no apparent reason whatsoever!!
Things that irritate me, and why!
- Blister packs
(as I explained above) I know the thieves can’t get into them and steal the product – but I can’t get into the damned things either!!!
- Chain Letters, Forward this to five friends or else etc.
I have to fight my way through enough junk in my inbox in a day, without being told my leg will fall off if I don’t forward this to six friends, a dog and a chicken (just to annoy them and fill up their inbox as well!!).
And the interesting one, List two irrational annoyances that you can’t quite put your finger on.
- Jim Carey
Don’t ask me why – haven’t the foggiest!
- Mobile Phones
This isn’t mobile phones in general, heck I work for a company that makes them. It’s when I watch someone (usually a businessman in a suit), frantically scrabbling through his pockets for a mobile phone that’s ringing at full volume – playing the most annoying ringtone ever (usually Barbie Girl – or something equally daft). You put it in your pocket just a minute ago, for goodness sake – put it on vibrate then you’d be able to find it!!!!!
I may make a complete hash of this as I’ve not started one of these before, but lets give it a go!
- List two things that irritate you for a reason (and list the reason!), and two things that irritate you for no apparent reason whatsoever!!
