You're BUUUGGGGING Me, Dude! Stop It!: MomDot's Small Talk Six!

Those MomDotters are at it again...Small talk Six! On Saturdays.

This week's topic is:
The six things other people do that make you personally uncomfortable.You can answer this with a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, 6 photos, 6 videos, etc .

Well, there are many things that bug the crap out of me {according to my husband, too many, sometimes}. It will be hard to list only six, but like the good little rebel trooper I am, I will do my best.

1) Hearing YOUR music inside my house, with all my doors and windows closed. If I can hear it, IT'S TOO DAMN LOUD!

2) If you want to have a conversation with me, address me by name. Or honey. Or Mama. Or SOMETHING. When you do not do this, and I am already engrossed in another task, I will not hear you and you will have to repeat yourself so that I can understand what you are talking about. {This goes for my Husband, especially...}

3) People that just STOP in the middle of the aisle in stores like Wal~Mart, Target, etc. and no amount of saying "Excuse me, I need to get by" makes them move. That is just plain rude.

4) Getting unsolicited, and completely untrue, advice from people on how to raise my child. The people who have done this to me consider themselves "experts" because they have "raised some kids". My In~Laws having a problem washing their hands before they held The Baby Diva, even though it was Doctor's orders {because she was fresh out of the NICU and had a depressed immune system}, but they thought it was my rule, offensive and paranoid, for example.

5) Seeing kids playing in the streets with no parental supervision. I want to tell them to get out of the street, but don't want to step on anyone's toes. At the same time, I don't want my daughter to see that kind of behavior and think it's OK for her to do the same.

6) People not respecting my personal space. I don't know you. Don't stand so close to me.

6a) Women {and sometimes men} who bathe themselves in the most foul smelling Eau Du Toilette. My Husband and I always say "Old French Whore." I personally cannot handle strong smells, they will cause me to have killer migraine that lasts for days {This is why magazines stopped putting perfume sample in their ad pages}. I wish people would have a little more respect and compassion for others and realize that when we can smell them coming a mile away, we are not thinking "Oh that smells wonderful!" On the contrary, we are thinking "You truly smell like an Old French Whore. Nice perfume. Must you marinate in it??" Sometimes the perfume that you adore can cause the people that encounter you and your stink extreme pain and suffering.

6b) BARNEY!!! He is the Anti-Christ! {As my daughter sings that bloody song...where she heard it, I will never know. Barney is banned in this house, along with SpongeBob.}

That's my list and I'm sticking to it!!

6a...amen there. I used to work with a woman that would marinate in some God aweful scent. As the night went on (especially a very busy one)the warmth and sweat on her body would intensify the scent. Worse yet, by lunch she wouldnt be able to smell it and would re-bathe in it. It got so I'd give her the choice, you do the run-backs (putting the clothes back to the proper racks) OR you stand in the fitting room area and make tickets. If she did one, I'd do the other and when the fitting room duties were done, I'd make sure I was in an opposite department from her for the nightly clean up. Not to say her odor was strong, but my eyes watered more around her than while cutting onions.

I agree with you on all of them except for SpongeBob. He's soooooo cool!
