Welcome fellow malcontents

This is my first post for Things I Want to Punch in the Face, a decidedly less sunny blog than my crafty Prairie Tales blog. See, things irk my sh*t on a daily basis. Alone, they are not a big deal but add to it a stressed gal with a short fuse and you get—you guessed it, Einstein!—something I want to punch in the face.

So without further ado, I present a snarky take on life's little annoyances.

Today, I'd like to smack down waiters who top off your coffee without asking. I mean, you might have just gotten it to the right temperature and blend of cream and sugar when they come along and fill up your decaf cup with regular joe while you're eyeballing the dessert menu. I'm the boss of me! I want to punch these presumptive bozos in the face.

Here's an even worse one: I was at a bar, and the waitress filled up my pint glass with water (which I appreciate--I love an attentive waitress wen it comes to water). The problem is my pint glass was half full of hard cider, which she had just served me five minutes before. Good news is I got another cider on the house.

Sweet lord, yes. Presumptive coffee-toppers. We hates them too.

Great idea for a blog, too...I just hate so many things.

Do you take submissions?

I would like to punch those bitches in the face. And I don't even drink cream and sugar.

Right on, I have to say that it doesn't take much to drive me over the cliff these days and messing with my coffee is an easy way to start! Bless you for starting this blog!

I HATE THAT. I always cover my mug with my hand and continue conversation until they walk away.
