List it Tuesday - Things that make me go Grrr.

The inspiration for this week's list came when I got back to my car after work last week and saw yet another flyer stuck under the windscreen wiper.  This happens practically every day and the flyers are usually either for wild student nights out (clearly they haven't seen me leave my car in the morning as sadly my days of being mistaken for a student are over!) or for gym membership (even if I could motivate myself to join another gym, it definitely won't be the one leaving flyers on my car that go soggy in the rain and stick to my windscreen in a papier-mâché mess, Grrr!) And so this list was born! Turns out there are so many things that do make me go Grrr in this world today that it was quite hard to stop at just 10!

In case the list is too small to read, this is what it says:
  1. Flyers being left on my windscreen every fricking day.
  2. Cruelty to animals.
  3. Crap customer service.
  4. Bad manners/rudeness.
  5. People earning more on welfare than I do working full time.
  6. This never ending recession.
  7. Polititians and every lie they tell.
  8. People throwing litter out of cars (or at all for that matter!)
  9. Being stuck behind slow drivers or walkers.
  10. My lottery numbers never coming up!

I promise I'll come up with something less grumpy and more positive next week (my last week of blogging before I head off to New York and Acapulco for 3 weeks - I may have mentioned it once or a zillion times already!)

Oh, and don't forget to check the other lists or leave a link to your own by way of Aimee at  Artsyville.


  1. Oh I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The flyer thing...every freaking day!
    Hoping you have better luck at the lottery soon.

  2. I'm with the lottery win ... remember your rellies when it happens!

  3. Ah yes...Crap customer service...in my 10 top grumpies too!

  4. Love, love, love this drawing! Your grumpy list made me smile. I too ABHOR bad customer service. I live in New Jersey (USA) and I am convinced that half-assedness must be a requirement here! It's always lovely when store clerks stay on their cell phone while completing a sale. I would have been fired for that back in Indiana!

  5. a rant and rave! i love it! sorry you had to wait so long to post - my procrastination + the time difference = late in the day for you! thanks for being patient. love the list!

  6. That is a solid list! I'm sure it feels a bit better after typing it.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday to check out the Rally signs.

  7. I love how one little thing can inspire an entire list. That's what makes this so much fun. :)

  8. Yay for emptying the spleen! Love the "hate it" lists, so cathartic :)

    So with you on the people who throw trash out the windows. My daughter Miss A once rolled her window down to chastise an offender!

  9. Agreed - The illustration this week is fantastic. Agreed to be not-so-fantastic = People who don't know what the words "please" and "thank you" are for.

  10. no, I think grump lists are great (for obvious reasons)! Numbers 6&7 seem to strike me. a big fat Grrrr to them.


Your comments always colour me happy! Thank you for popping by.
