Since I try to be a positive person, I try not to complain too much.  (Although those who know me have heard what some of my biggest gripes are….)

So when something gets under my skin, I write it down!  Then my friend said that the “Festivus” holiday included an “airing of grievances” over the dinner table.  I thought today would be the perfect day to share a few of my pet peeves:

– getting the last bit of salt out of the container
– turnpike stops
– cashiers who complain
– dribbly noses
– poor road designs – “No right turn between 8 AM and 12 PM” (My first traffic ticket…)
– pocket linings that rip
– bra straps that fall down
– tank tops that don’t cover my bra straps
– hotel showers in which the water doesn’t drain fast
– hotel shower curtains that touch me
– hotels, in general
– the breeze created by a jogger passing by
– a sneeze that isn’t covered
– poor manufactured quality (This is a biggie for me.  Just this week the ball bearings in our wheels cost us $600 to repair.  The front ones were recalled, but not the back.  The other day our power strip burned out. Yesterday, my Wilton cookie press broke.  My sister still has the one my mom used!  Nothing is made well anymore.  I think I’ve already shared that all but one appliance broke within the first year of buying them.  Our plasma tv lasted 4 years.  The computer I am using to write this – it’s dying fast – four years old.)

OK, I’m done until next year!

I hope to share one more Christmas post and return to regular blogging after the new year.  I also intend to catch up on my blog reading next week!
