Random things that make me #RAGE

Thanks for all the virtual hugs on yesterday's post.  I'm fine, really.  Sometimes when I'm really emotional (happy or sad) I like to write and just let the feelings flow.  I've always been that way.  Yesterday was kind of a rough day and I was extra emotional from the stress of trying to catch up on everything (work, school, home, kids, blogging, etc.) since our impromptu trip last week.

It gets overwhelming sometimes trying to handle everything, but I'm sure you all know that.  It's funny sometimes how the littlest thing can make you explode when you're already pushing yourself to your maximum capacity of stress.  So, today I decided to share with you a few "little things" that make me want to stab my eyes out with a spoon - even when I'm in a good mood.

-Borrowing things from me without asking.
-Driving too slow and then speeding up when I try to pass you.
-People who don't take responsibility for their actions.
-Half-ass apologies.
-When the lead on my pencil breaks.
-Double-dipping when we're sharing.
-People who talk about stupid things so loud that you can hear them three aisles away.
-When someone steals my pen so I have to use a different pen and the ink on that pen smears all over the place because it's too runny.
-Stray dogs that bark and try to chase me down the street while I'm trying to run.
-Hitting every single red light on my way in to work.
-Finally getting home after a long day only find out my bedroom light is burnt out.
-When they forget to give me a straw in the drive thru and I don't have time to go back.
-Vending machines that refuse to take my dollar.
-Stupid people.

I know there are wayyyyyy more things that make me rage but I don't think I can fit them all on one list.  What about you?  What makes you rage?  How do you handle your emotions when you're overwhelmed?


  1. stupid people, drama-filled people etc top my list!

  2. Glad you're doing ok and just needed to vent. We all need that! And yes to all the things above. I hate line cutters. Why people think they're time is more important than mine, I'll never know. I hate hitting every single red light as well!

  3. LOL Ahhhh, the dreaded burnt out bedroom light!!!!!!

  4. I just wanted to say that I read your other post, and I feel like that once in awhile too. I felt like that this morning, I kept thinking about what would happen if I were dead? Would my mom take time off from work to come to my funeral, and how would I die? It's just how life works... The thing that make me rage is how hot is it over here, and how come the season just won't change.

  5. Ugh light bulbs are the biggest pain when they burn out, are they not?!?! And stupid people tops every rage list for me. Stupid people at work, stupid people driving, stupid people in line in front of you, stupid loud people...everyone is stupid!

  6. Yup, to all of these! Except for double dipping, because like Joey on Friends, I don't share my food! Also when vending machines take my money but then whatever you want get stuck, or it doesn't give you change.

    Usually when I'm overwhelmed, I require time and space by myself to sort everything out. I hope you're feeling better!!

  7. I have a similar post that I wrote for next week on this same topic and people not taking responsibility for their actions is #1 on my list! I actually don't mind the double dipping; if we're sharing something that means I like you enough to share; which means I'm okay with your germs; which means we've probably swapped spit; which means you must be my husband.
