The Bitching Post

Yeah, I'm in THAT kind of mood.

Been reading the news on the television and the Internet. I watch some reality shows and am amazed at how some people act and live. Even my own personal interactions with others can leave me feeling disrespected or misunderstood. Reading and watching current events, I'm finding strong feelings stirring in my soul.

Out of curiosity, I started compiling a list of things that bug me. It ended up growing larger than I anticipated. You know, what sets us off or makes us react with, "You know, I don't like it when ... " Some of these things are just petty annoyances, but some of these things really piss me off.

In no particular order, here the things that bug me:

People who park in handicap parking spaces but do not have handicap permits nor handicap tags on their vehicle.

People who take up a motorized shopping cart to keep their kids entertained.

Stores whose policy does not allow employees to repossess a motorized cart from a customer who clearly doesn't need one.

Store employees who make no attempt to keep motorized store carts charged up.

People who claim they're being oppressed or prevented from succeeding in life, then point to those who have done well for themselves and accuse them of selling out.

People who borrow money, get a sudden windfall of cash, and do not offer any of it toward what they owe you.

People who file frivilous lawsuits.

Lawyers who take frivilous cases for said lawsuits.

People who claim they want less government control in their lives but yet are first in line for whatever government handout they can get a hold of.

People who reject something being said just because it's coming from a member of an opposite political party.

People who treat you one way when it's just the two of you, but treat you differently when other people are around.

People who show disrespect to military troops and their families because they oppose the war they're fighting in.

People who demand their free speech rights but will not take responsibility for what they say.
