OT - Eff Off Friday

Aniki's picture

Happy Friday, STalkers. It's that time again! Eff off to:

  • arseholes who sit at a green light until you give a short honk (probably on his cell phone) then they constantly change lanes to prevent you from passing, and when a long empty space opens up, they gun it. F*ckwit.
  • people who think every bloody call should be on speakerphone
  • my lack of willpower when it comes to tasty pizza

  • Me being at work while my husband has the day off
  • Me having to yell "it's not getting greener" at stop lights Smile
  • impossible deadlines

No 'F' bomb when you're yelling? My drive to work usually has 10 or more! LOL

Eff off to:

  • People who run red lights causing me to have to sit at the green light longer than I want. (it happens basically EVERY time here. Am I going to get hit today? WHO KNOWS!)
  • The fact half of the office is taking today off, so we're super under staffed and looking at another stressful day when I already have a s*** ton of things to get done!
  • The three new years resolutioners at the gym who haven't caught on to it being past January... It's okay you three, you don't have to come to the gym anymore and sit there on your phones and never break a sweat (or run... Or lift a weight...). It's alright to stay home and get a bit of extra sleep. No one is going to judge you.
  • How expensive daycare is. Who prices that? There are like 40 kids... At $100 a week and with only four staff members, no one wins, they probably don't make that much of a profit, and I lose money like it's cool. Plus all the extra costs... The "Bring an extra $25 for this thing we're doing." But at least that only goes until end of May.
  • My couch that still isn't here. Where is it? Who knows! (I tried calling, rang twice, then "all lines are busy", and hung up.)

I'd say more, but I'm in a shcokingly good mood this morning Smile Ran a half mile in under 2 minutes, curled a 40 lb. weight (with each arm individually), did 20 pull-ups, actually did SD5's hair instead of just running a brush through and calling it a day, and I was a full five minutes early to work, so I'm on a bit of a high and might be feeling like a bit of a bada$$ this morning. LMAO

Sending vibes to you!!! (Also thermogenics... I started new ones this week, THEY WORK. I feel like I have enough energy to conquer things! And I look like I just came out of a pool at the gym, LMAO)

They're supposed to help make you sweat more and burn more. But they also have caffeine so they give you some energy. You take them 30 minutes before a workout. So far they're doing pretty good. I have energy and my workout went well! Smile

The way you’ve worded this cracks me up PA!

”Am I going to get hit today? Who knows!” And “It ok you three can stop coming to the gym and sitting on your cell phone...”

ROFL!! Biggrin

Eff off to:

-People pulling out in front of you and then slowing down and weaving around erractically.  When you get a chance to pass them you see them not looking at the road at all but looking down at their phone!  Just as bad as a drunk driver!  Maybe worse!

-Staying in the passing lane on the highway while not actually passing anyone and clogging up traffic.  Then when people finally get a chance to pass (in the other lane) speeding up!  One of my biggest pet peeves.

-People that think they need to call instead of texing or e-mailing. 

I think I could go on and on about all my driving pet peeves.  Also the fact that it has been raining nonstop for like 40 days and 40 nights here isn't helping matters!

Happy Friday all!!!! *yes3*

ProbablyAlreadyInsane's picture

The passing lane thing!!! I can't stand that!!! I already explained to SD9 the difference between the two lanes... LOL

Simpleton21's picture

On my route to work it is only two lanes on both sides of the highway so if you get stuck behind some numb nutt just putsing along you are screwed and it happens like every morning.  You would think the ding dong would notice that once there is a chance for others to get over they ALL do and then pass them in the right lane!  I also hate semis which are usually clogging up the other lane!  Ugh!  

Oh and merging onto the highway is another pet peeve.  I hate when people on the highway aren't courteous enough to either slow down slightly, speed up slightly, or get the hell over!  I know they have the right away but really just paying attention and doing 1 of these things isn't that hard!  I always get over if I can but if I can't I allow them room to merge!  

ProbablyAlreadyInsane's picture

The semis here do the same thing! There were TWO OF THEM! Driving side-by-side on the two lane highway on my way to work! I got so frustrated with them! I was lucky I didn't have a kid in the car, I was speaking rather.... colorfully... 

Simpleton21's picture

Yep, they do that crap here also!  I have a major problem with cussing and driving!  LOL!  Plus it has been raining here nonstop for over a week now which apparently makes the drivers even worse!  Ahhhhhh!!!!!!

Merrywey's picture

It should be a crime!  I am guilty of keeping to the speed limit on some of the two lane windy hilly roads I drive in West Virginia.  But I always pull over at the first opportunity to let cars behind me pass.  It creates a hazard when cars stack up behind a driver like that and it is just plain rude.

Simpleton21's picture

I don't get irritated when people do the speed limit in the situation you described Merrywey.  I am talking about 2 lanes both congested with no hills/curves/etc!  Even though I speed a little if someone gets behind me that is in a bigger hurry I always get over the first chance I get as well!  

Simpleton21's picture

I've been considering building my own and charging people to reserve a spot on it!  I don't even know how it is possible to rain this much!!!!!  I just checked the forecast for the weekend....MORE RAIN!!!!  I am going to snap soon!

Simpleton21's picture

We had our fair share of that before all this rain.  I honestly don't know which is more annoying to me at this point.  The snow would at least fill in all these potholes and make a smoother drive Wink LOL

Simpleton21's picture

I actually enjoy a good spring/summer storm but this is just a continuous downpour with no end in site.  None of the good thunder and lightening...just blah rain and dreary sky! :(  The only positive I can think of at the moment is that things are starting to bud and all the rain will make all the new blooms so bright and vibrant!

Seems in suburban Washington DC they were quite common. Makes you have to drive in the extreme left lane if you want to exit.  And with their traffic and drivers once I got there I was not going to move right because there was no way I would be able to get back in. Which brings me to my second pet peeve:  people who intentionally block your way, i.e. speed up, when you need to change lanes.  I'm so glad I don't live there anymore!

Eff off to:

- being surprised with $2000 worth of bills for a repair that was supposed to go through insurance but isn’t now

- SO promising SS a sum of money for school which he doesn’t have, didn’t tell me about for three months, and is now not talking to ME because I got mad

- having to work everyday this weekend

Aniki's picture

Ugh, those effing repair bills.

I am willing to smack your SO in the back of the head for you. Diablo

--To the a**holes behind me at the light who blast their horns the nano second the light turns green.  Just because the light is green doesn't mean the intersection is clear.  I'll decide when it is safe to proceed not the person behind me who doesn't have a clear view.

--to the employee sked to work today to provide coverage and didn't show up or bother calling out because she thinks I won't find out.  I did and she'll be marked AWOL and her pay will be docked.  I am done playing.

--f off to my skids who have blasted all forms of social media with pictures of their deceased mom AND DH!  Passive aggressive turds.  Wonder when DH will figure out he has unfollowed them all?

Aniki's picture

Honking the instant the light turns green is ridiculous!! I honked at the ahole in front of me because the light had been green for several seconds and he was just sitting there - NO other traffic. By the way his head jerked, I believe he was looking down at his cell phone. Poop head. Look at it when your car is parked!

I don't have any eff off comments because I've had a really good week, but the fast lane this is ridiculous. Drivers in Germany are SO respectful of the passing lane and UK drivers are pretty good at using the overtaking lane for overtaking and then getting out of it. Smile

Simpleton21's picture

Seems people in the US are just aholes anymore!  Everyone just seems so self absorbed and common curteousy has become very uncommon :(  

Iamwoman's picture

Yes, this!

I wish US drivers would respect the passing lane. Grrr!

Eff off to gray skies. I feel like I haven't seen sun or felt warmth in a decade.

Eff off to co-workers who talk too much before I have had my coffee.

Eff off to paying rent. Seriously, I am so over sky high rent payments for a tiny place.

Are you in OH also?!?! I feel the same about the lack of sunshine!  I might have to start going to a tanning bed or something!  I need some damn sunshine in my life!!!!!

Eff Off to:

  • Driving my kid to tutoring almost daily after school, which turns my day into a nearly 11 hour day
  • GAL’s who say “oops! I didn’t mean to put that in there” after a report is already written
  • the grocery store cashier who asked me why wild salmon is “so much more red than other salmon”, and then rudely talked over me to the bagger about random crap when I kindly began to describe why.
  • Kids!! DH and I have a kid free weekend this weekend!! (A very rare thing for us)
  • The clogged toilet DD left for us before flying out of town this weekend
  • My dog relaxing nearby, sighing contentedly while I play the piano, but then lifting her head, grumbling and giving me the stink eye whenever I hit a sour key

Aniki's picture

I like it when the cashier takes time to peruse my magazine cover. Um, hello!! You WORK here. Read it on your break or before/after work. I just want to get my stuff and get OUT.

Iamwoman's picture

I know right?! 

I once bought a Jicima for salad, and the cashier had to ask me what it was to ring it up. When I told her, her face lit up and she said she’d been looking all over town for Jicima because she has a great recipe that needs it. I said, “well, lucky you... it was right here where you work all along!” Lmao!

Aniki's picture

Maybe she could have used that new-fangled Google thingy to look up a picture of it....LOL
