When I've gone out of my way to help/do something nice for someone and I don't get a thank you. I don't do for others expecting a thank you, but when I don't get one it bothers me.

Or when I say thank you to someone and they say "no problem or it's no big deal" instead of "you are welcome."

To continue on Jeb zone 5, brides that don't send thank you notes for wedding presents. It leaves two issues, did the present not arrive or did the bride neglect to write them?

Piles of clutter on my desk and side table. It shouldn't irritate because I DID IT, but it does, because I'm too lazy to deal with it promptly and my household does not include servants. Oh well.

BTW Sal...your spoiled milk before it's expiration date is something to get upset about. Last week I opened up a fresh container of half & half creamer to add to my coffee cup and it was lumpy & spoiled 3 weeks prior to it's exp date. Ruined a good cup of coffee to boot.

Yes, that inner seal on containers of food IS annoying. I esp. get so frustrated by the small white adhesive seal with the tabs on the sides, like under caps of ketchup and other condiments. It takes me forever to lift those tabs and sometimes that doesn't work at all and I merely punch a hole in the seal and peel it into a billion pieces to get it off. Of course my fingers don't work as well anymore but sheesh.

It's not 1950 anymore, thankfully. Ancient and historical gender stereotypes as to who does what for a couple are long gone, not even present in my boomer generation among people I know. Tasks are tasks and either person does whatever as the situation or agreement provides. Just think of it - to apply this rule, in a same-sex marriage of two men, would nobody send thank you notes or do housework?

Frequently the bride's residence is also the groom's residence. Many gifts are not mailed, but are brought to the reception. And the bride can tell the groom what they received and from whom.

Huh, I'm a little bothered by one of my credit cards that does not have raised numbers. I use it online so need to be able to read the digits, but, carried in my wallet, the already low-contrast printed numerals are scuffed and hard to read. If they were raised, I think I could read them better.

The little things that probably should not irritate me much are mostly just things that had a 50/50 chance of going in my favor, but always seem to go the other way. These are very minor things, so I should just smile and shrug my shoulders, but I can't help thinking "Yup, I knew it."

Examples would be dropping a piece of food on the floor, mushy side down. Or initially starting to put a fitted bedsheet on the wrong way, because it's elasticized all the way around, so I couldn't tell length from width. Or if I purposely select an item off a store shelf, slightly further back, (in hopes of a later expiry date)...and of course pull out an earlier expiry date item, because the clerk didn't bother stocking the freshest inventory behind the older stuff.

These things obviously only take a second to 'fix.' I just get slightly irritated that random possibilities seem to go against me 90% of the time, instead of just 50/50, lol.

A lot of the things listed here are definitely irritation-worthy and I believe that they should irritate people - especially the mask issue.

I get irritated by certain high-pitched nasal voices and also by people who use vocal rise, making every sentence sound like a question. If it is someone on TV, I mute their voices, and if I care what they are saying, I turn on closed captioning. Often I just change the channel, as I tend to have no confidence in people who have this type of speech pattern.

Another thing that bothers me is when people say "is is," as in, "The problem is, is that I cannot speak properly." Saying "is" once is enough. If someone has a stuttering problem, I can forgive them for this. When most politicians stutter, I just assume that they are lying, however.

Why do they have to be stuttering first before you assume a politician is full of beans?

Those delightful Americans still ignoring effective masking and distancing can be more than irritating, they can kill you . As we slide toward March - a month that has been put forward as the possible time when the hyper infective, more lethal strains will be raging the worst. Meanwhile I had a tall heavy woman march up and actually lean over me at the grocery yesterday to snag a bag of frozen vegetables that was in front of me in the freezer.

I was finding this seemingly more prevalent behavior quite rude even before the pandemic. With it not being unusual to end up looking at the back of a fellow shopper's head, as they went in front of me to capture their treasure.

But this woman actually went over me, as in pressing against me before I darted away like a startled animal.

I've also been asked to get out of the way several times when shopping in later years. And it is not like I am some toad that plants themselves in front of grocery cases and then stands there for 15 minutes.

After that encounter I had to deal with being around a warehouseman at the feed store that was masking only their mouth. Because the merchandise I wanted turned out to be hidden away in a back corner of the store, behind some shelves for some reason.

They do not have to be stuttering first, but if they are stuttering, then it sounds like they are dancing around the truth. The more accomplished liars do not stutter, of course, but then they are already known for being liars.

Totally way too many to list right now. I'm finding with the stress of the past year, the little things that pop up are completely annoying and too much to deal with. Furnace making an odd noise? Can't deal, call the service person. My BIL showing up before 8 AM to drop off dinner? Very thoughtful of him but you'd think he'd learn by now we aren't all up and at 'em at 5 AM like he is. I don't want company at 7:30 AM. Our nephew used our auto supply parts store account with our permission and paid me for items needed to rebuild almost all working parts in his truck. It was a couple of thousand dollars - A good boy. But he returned to them about $500 worth of unneeded things and I'm carrying a credit we will never use. I've spent an hour on hold three different times trying to get them to issue a check in the last 5 weeks. Still no check. About the only thing DH uses that account for these days are car wax and windshield wipers - it would take many years to use up that credit ;0) They agreed to a refund when he made the return but I can't seem to make it happen.

Unasked for advice. And I picked this one because I do think this is something that should not bother me, but it does. It is happening more frequently. If I am cooking something at work, I get recipes for how THEY like to cook or eat whatever I am cooking. And I am told how my cooking of whatever it is would be SO much better if I did xyz to it. If I am out walking, I get weight loss and fitness advice. "You should lift weights, do crunches." The worst part of that is a lot of these people (men) are giving me advice on how to achieve the perfect female form to suit their tastes, like I am supposed to care. In one week recently I was told both how to make my behind bigger, and how to make it smaller from two different men, presumably to suit their tastes. And they are all hugely overweight. But I am supposed to take advice from them. Okay sir. Who are you again and who exactly asked for your expertise? In the grocery store I was buying some canned pineapple chunks for SO, and I was told by some busybody that I should just buy a fresh pineapple and cut it up myself because its healthier. I said nothing and kept putting those cans in my cart. No one asked you lady.

When I was buying my hoard of Halloween candy for work, I was at the self checkout at walmart, minding my own business and ringing up my sugar haul. Another busybody stopped dead in her tracks, stared at the contents of my cart and the conveyor belt and said, "You KNOW that stuff is POISON, don't you?!?!?!" I couldn't resist. I replied, "Not YET its not!" and then I followed it up with a menacing "MWWWWAAHHHAHAHAHA!" For good measure. "Now go home and hand out organic apples or whatever and get your house rolled like you deserve."

As to milk spoiling before it's date, DH bought the more expensive organic milk. Guess what it had a date of over a month out. The one in our fridge that I bought last week has a date of March 31! Yes, 5 weeks out. We haven't had to throw out any milk since we switched to organic. It may cost more, but it lasts forever!

And trust me I was a milk sniffer and dumper!

Something that drives me bonkers is the plug for appliances (two prong, not three) that have one side thicker than the other, so they only go into the socket one way. That's fine but 99.99% of the time, I pick up the cord, grab the plug and try to plug it in, but it's facing the wrong way so I have to turn it over to get it to go in. I don't know if this is some deliberate design (flaw) or what, but it happens so much, I can't believe it's by accident. If I didn't think it would be impossible that my sockets were installed backward (they'd have to be installed upside down) I would wonder if that's why it's a problem, maybe just for me. If I wasn't so annoyed every time it happens, maybe I could put fingernail polish on the side of the plug that must be UP so it will go in correctly, but I just curse and turn it over and get on with vacuuming or making waffles, or toast.

kathy, that milk lasts much longer because it's ultra-pasteurized. It's the only kind we buy, as we use so little that regular milk would spoil long before we finished the carton.

Also the food police or food elitists who jump into a conversation about something like candy bars, processed foods or OMG anything with sugar/carbs/whatever or the like and begin scolding people about how unhealthy they are. The really funny ones are those that talk about their favorite Chinese restaurant and then lecture on how they never buy foods from China. Just SOB.

Diabetes is epidemic in the US at this time and this costs everyone money if nothing else - the reality isn't in fact "It's my body and I'll eat what I want to!". Especially with every declining diabetic that is a grandparent, parent, sibling or spouse the presence of the syndrome takes a toll on their family that is more than just financial.

I knew an overweight woman who was on her way to knee surgery - and probably worse - that was still buying giant fatty and sugary drinks at Dairy Queen. And was a proud member of the "It's my body!" club.

She and her also tubby husband were the sole caretakers of a young grandchild at the time.

Kathy, I've heard the organic milk lasts longer. I think we are buying basically spoiled milk. We bought the half and half one evening and dd opened it up the next morning and it was chunky. We dumped the half and half. I may start just making a special trip and taking it back to make a point with the store. I shouldn't have to pay double to get what I paid for.

I may start just making a special trip and taking it back to make a point with the store

Grocery stores are just about the worst places to be going in person during the pandemic - we (the American shopping public) were being told to avoid them months ago and with the new strains spreading through the population recently even more so now. With current urging being to have groceries delivered, picked up curbside or at the very least limiting time inside stores to 5 minutes.

I had the encounters described above because due to having run out of bottled water I was at a grocery at a stupid time (Sunday afternoon) and even though it was a small discount store that never has a large turnout in my experience lack of adequate masking and distancing continues to be so prevalent that I am finding it pretty much impossible to avoid close encounters if there is any number of other people present at all.

And of course at the feed store - which I ducked into driving home because there happened to be only a couple visitor cars parked out front at the moment I was driving by - it was an employee that wasn't playing along, could have been blowing unscreened hypervirulent COVID at me with their exhalations.

And now I have to run off to that same local Grocery Outlet store again in order to get there as soon as possible after they open. And the number of other shoppers is as small as possible - guess I am really going to have to try and get the home delivery thing going. However I don't think this store offers it.

Since I've gone to organic milk (Amish sourced) I haven't had any problems with milk or half & half spoiling. I do sometimes have to go to a second or third store to find it but I usually go to at least three stores every week anyway.

Yes, if milk spoiled that far from the date I'd take it back and speak to the manager. It may have been improperly stored during transport or the stores fault but they won't know if you don't speak up.

Embothrium I don't really want to catch this, but I'm not putting my entire life on hold either. I limit my trips to the store. I rarely shop on a weekend even before Covid. I wear my mask properly. I don't touch my face. I sanitize my hands. I wash my hands immediately when I come in the house. I'm doing pretty much what I am supposed to. I want to pick out my own groceries.

I agree. If grocery stores or stores in general were such dangerous places then I would have probably contracted covid a long time ago. I haven't done curbside or delivery at all except a few things from Amazon and that is just to avoid long drives. I take most of the advised precautions and try to keep my distance from other shoppers.

I do think crowded office environments would be more dangerous if fully staffed though, so I'm thankful that I am able to work from home. It's been a little over 11 months since WFH started and I've been to my office maybe 10 times so far. There's usually only a handful of people on my floor on any given day.

Personal appearances at grocery stores are the most risky followed by ones at offices. One's life being put on hold (or ended completely for 500,000 Americans - so far) is exactly what picking up COVID offers. And masking etc. was never a guarantee of safety and will be even less so as the additionally infectious and sometimes also more lethal strains continue to multiply and spread through the US population. With next month predicted to be a likely time for a resulting possible Hell scape to occur. As in even more of one than has already been happening.

Still going to the grocery store? With new virus variants spreading, it’s probably time to stop.

Health experts say you should avoid optional trips whenever you can. You probably need a better mask, too.

Is going to the grocery store safe? Covid-19 variants could mean less shopping and more N95 masks. - Vox

"Kathy, I've heard the organic milk lasts longer."

As far as I've ever heard, the shelf life of food products is unaffected by whether it qualifies as being organic or not.

BUT, one big difference I've noticed, is that many kinds of organic milk are not just pasteurized but are ULTRA pasteurized. That would be why the "use by" date would be many weeks further away than with fresh milk.

With the higher temperature processing, the shelf life is lengthened. In some parts of the world, milk is given UHT (ultra high temperature) processing and put into the familiar small aseptic packages that are shelf stable a goodly long time and require no refrigeration.


This high temperature processing adversely affects flavor. Both refrigerated ultra pasteurized milk available in US markets and the unrefrigerated UHT ones available abroad have a "boiled milk" off-taste to them and do not have the familiar fresh milk flavor.

When I am followed by a person such as the "psychopath" as described above, I pull over to the side of the road and let them pass. I wait several minutes before pulling back out onto the roadway. I do not play dangerous road war games.

Elizabeth a word of caution about pulling over the the side of the road as there have been several incidents where doing that turned out bad. Better to exit in an area with people such as a gas station or if on highway take the next exit then reenter.

Doesn't bother me, but it bugs my child... missing puzzle piece(s). I can still work the puzzle.

Tailgating is common here, if I pulled off every time a tail gator had found their way to me I would be doing it a lot. And I don't want to duck off onto shoulders or even paved designated areas with any frequency because of the possibility of picking up a nail when doing so.

" I was driving at or near the speed limit the whole time." So you weren't driving the speed limit and thus holding up everyone stuck behind you. You don't think that is rude and controlling behavior???

Each of these does not go with the other:

At or near the speed limit

Weren't driving the speed limit

Here's a couple more contradictory concepts:

Maximum posted speed

Whatever speed somebody wants to go is a de facto minimum speed

What's weird? I found the missing piece after I finished the puzzle for the second time in a month (not the time before. And we've looked for things on this rug, vacuumed, you name it... since we last completed it)??? Mind you, we've done several puzzles since then? Child wants to do the puzzle again now that all the pieces are there. Ok then.
