Things can get under my skin pretty quick when I'm in an agitatable mood. This is some of the stuff that has irritated the hell out of me recently:
- Screaming and crying babies in public, whose parents act like they could care less.
I know this is an old post -- but since it's the one that started it I have to reply
I was right there with you -- until I
became the mother who had to go out in public with the screaming/crying baby/kid. Now I understand that the parents aren't acting like they don't care -- we're just trying to keep our heads from exploding while we try and get in and out of the store while grabbing as many essentials as quickly as possible without resorting to
singing and dancing in the aisles
(not really -- just adding that part about the violence for emphasis and humor -- the years of working for lawyers has ingrained the habit of placing such disclaimers -- so please -- no calls to Child Protective Services -- they'd just give him right back
). So please have mercy on us poor souls the next time you see a frazzled mom in the store with a screaming kid -- we really aren't trying to p*ss you off
Also -- since I'm new and I don't know everyone yet I have to ask -- have you had children since this post and if so, has your opinion changed?
