Katie’s punch list, part 1

  1. Rush Limbaugh
  2. People with strong political opinions but who are so closed minded they can’t even argue their point vs. yours.
  3. Being late, or people who are late.
  4. Women who take more than 20 minutes to shower and get ready to go out. Also, women who dress up (usually, unbeknownst to them, like a slightly classy hooker) to go to the grocery store.
  5. People (my husband) giving me my car back with no gas.
  6. People who don’t discipline their children. Or people who say “Don’t make me take you to the car/bathroom/outside.” We all know you’re going to kick that kid’s ass; just do it and get it over with. Or people who count at their kids (I have two kids, so it’s not like I don’t understand).
  7. Bad coffee.
  8. Published books/magazines/papers or printed signs/menus/placards with obvious spelling and grammatical errors. The book one really gets to me. I mean, they do have an editor, right?
  9. Having a masters degree, being laid off, and people telling me now that I am “overqualified.”
  10. Pickup truck drivers who put the metal testicles hanging from the bumper.

Wow, I agree with this entire list. My husband loves using my car and returning it on E. His famous line for taking my car, "I didn't have any gas in mine" ... HUH?

I hate the political jerks - totally with you on that one too and I'm sorry to say I've never seen the metal testes hanging from the bumper and if I did, I'd laugh so hard, I'd probably pee myself and run my car off the road from fits of laughter.

You made my day with this image.

I find a misspelled word in almost every book I read. I thought I was the only one who noticed!

My sister abhors those truck testes but they amuse me. Even more amused by what it reveals about the buyer.

Don't agree with number 4! I hate people who say stuff like this (usually ugly people). Sue me for taking my time to look good. As long as I am not late, or it doesn't stop me from being somewhere important, I will take as long as I damn well please.
