"The Counting Song"

I haven't done one for awhile, so I feel the need to make a list!  So here (in no particular order) are more things I just don't get:

10.  Parents who allow their little girls to dress (and look) like tiny little hookers!  Do they like having people stare at their kids in disbelief??

9.  Why, no matter what I am shopping for, it is always in the farthest away corner of the store.  And the second thing I need is in the opposite farthest away corner!

8.  Drivers who do not put on their headlights in the rain, fog, snow, twilight.  Did no one ever tell them it isn't to help them see, it's to help US see THEM??!! 

7.  Why kids look so adorable when they're sleeping, but adults just look their worst.  Open drooling mouths, spiky hair, morning breath, and ratty nightwear just doesn't make a pretty picture!

6.  Why, on the day that you absolutely look your worst, that's the day you run into your old boyfriend!   Is that what happens when God needs a good laugh?

5.  People who ignore "10 items or less", or "No Parking", or "Limit: 2", or "Form a line here".  Why do they think the rules don't apply to them??

4.  People who do not flush after using a public restroom.  Were they raised by wolves??

3.  Why is it that when it has been grey and rainy all day long, the skies start to clear and sun comes out 15 minutes before it gets dark?  

2.  Why is it that people who are boring and long-winded NEVER know it??  Can't they hear themselves talk??

1.   Why my daughter ALWAYS finds an available legal parking space right in front of wherever she's going??   And why can't I??

Okay, deep breath!  I guess I've ranted enough for today!  No answers, but I feel a lot better anyway!


  1. Melodee, I have never thought about it, but I do love to see a precious sleeping child. When my husband falls asleep in his recliner, it is not a pretty picture! And oh, how I can't stand for people to ignore signs and act like they are the exception to the rule! Great list. laurie

  2. Thanks! I find the older I get, the more irritated some types of people make me!! :)

  3. I get so annoyed by people dressing their kids like adults. Heck, I don't even like adults to dress that way! I'm really not a fan of any type of sexualization of children.

  4. Amen! What's wrong with letting kids be kids?? Its such a short period of time in the overall scheme of things. Anything that pushes (or allows - depending on how forceful the child is) children to grow up too soon is just wrong. After all if they dress like that at 6 what will they want to wear at 16??? I shudder to think about it.

  5. I know you don't watch tv much anymore but you should check out Toddlers and Tiaras on TLC. It will make your blood boil. It's about the child beauty pageants and really how they're used by their mothers - and grandmothers. You can probably just google it for the show site and get the gist of it. little sis

  6. I have read a few articles about this idiocy. In some ways its another example of legal child abuse. Those kids are going to be permanently screwed! Nice work, wacko Moms....not!


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. It's really nice knowing what you think!! Besides, comments keep me from feeling like I'm here all by myself!! :)
