10 Little Everyday Annoyances

1. The sound of a water bottle being squeezed. It's worse than fingernails on a blackboard for me.

2. Not being able to wiggle my toes. Like if the bed's too short or my shoes are too small. (I buy closed-toe shoes a half size too big.)

3. Soggy cereal.

4. Stepping in gum or dog poop (or worse).

5. Toilet seats left up. I know it's cliche, but I'm the only female in my family and I can always tell when their friends or any male relatives have been over.

6. The smell of downtown Ogden, Utah (about 20 minutes from my home). 50% dog food factory, 50% Wonder Bread bakery. 100% disgusting.

7. The sound of whispering on TV shows. My husband likes to watch hunting shows and the hunters narrate while they're trying to be quiet so as not to spook the animals. Seriously, dudes. Shoot the footage and then do voice overs later on. Or little interviews like they do on reality TV shows. SOMETHING besides whispering into the microphone.

8. Waking up before the alarm goes off but not having enough time or not being able to fall asleep again.

9. Having to pay a "resort fee" or "luggage fee" on top of regular pricing. Please, just add it in so I don't have any surprises.

10. When there isn't any Diet Coke. (I know, pathetic.)

What are some of the little things that annoy you?

Ooh, good list! I'll add grabbing the milk carton to find that my husband has put it back into the fridge EMPTY. Argh.

Ahh I hate waking up before my alarm! I always wake up 15 minutes before it goes off and if I try to go to sleep again I flinch every 5 minutes because I think its going to go off. Nice list:D

LOL! I was SO nodding my head at your list, Wendy. :-) I would add "spending half an hour cleaning the kitchen only to return a few minutes later and discover someone has left a dirty glass on the counter instead of putting it in the DISHWASHER". Ahem. :-D

When someone leaves an inch of milk or soda in a bottle.

Not putting a fresh roll of toilet paper on the roller.

Before everyone had ice makers in their frig, someone putting the empty ice tray on top of the frig. It always would have some water in it which I would pour on my head. Errr!

Not properly closing a box of cereal or cookies and the last half going to waste.
