Don't you hate it when... A look at some of life's little annoyances

In life there are situations that happen, that frustrate us and agitate us, but are so insignificant the we often never think twice about it again, that is until we experience the situation again. This is a hub to reflect those insignificant annoyances that all too often make us say, “Don’t you hate it when…”.

Blood is Blood and you are stuck with who you got.

Don't you hate it when... you figure out you can't choose your relatives, and are stuck with even the embarrassing ones?

Not that big of a deal- But they sure are annoyances


Don’t you hate it when…

You feel something brush your cheek causing you to freak out, only to notice that it was just your hair and you have strangers staring at you, questioning your sanity?

Don’t you hate it when…

You are invited to a party, but are not told what kind of attire to wear?

Don’t you hate it when…

You run into your ex with his new fling…after you have been sick and look like a Zombie from Night of the Living Dead

Don’t you hate it when…

You run out of quarters and time at the car wash, but still have half the car to rinse off?

Why can't it stay where it goes?

Don't you hate it when... your make-up doesn't last and you keep having to apply it, over and over again?

The little things that get under the skin.


Don’t you hate it when…

What you say isn’t what you know, and what you know isn’t even what you meant to say?


Don’t you hate it when…

You are being trained at work, to do a job that you have never done before- and all the lingo and direction that the trainer is giving sounds like a foreign language?


Don’t you hate it when…

Your kids are screaming at the grocery store- one is trying to climb out of the basket while the other is taking off down the chip isle and you are wearing hi-heals and can’t move fast enough to catch them both… All while onlookers are shaking their heads in disapproval, as if you are enjoying this production?


Don’t you hate it when…

Your house stays clean and no one comes over, but the moment laundry is piled up, dishes are in the sink and the kids went on a sugar induced rampage- everyone shows up , Just to say hello?

Can't a girl just vent?

Don't you hate it when... someone walks up on you when you are talking to yourself (or a wall)?

Always remember, this too shall pass

Don’t you hate it when…

You have to make a decision, and everyone advises you to do whatever feels right, and you have no clue what feels right?


Don’t you hate it when…

You start walking to the bathroom, but are stopped halfway there by someone who won’t take the hint, won’t get out of your way and won’t stop talking and allow you to pass?


Don’t you hate it when…

You over hear a teenager complaining about the car their parents are going to make them drive after they just ran a stop sign and totaled your car which you need to get to and from work to make money and pay your bills?


Don’t you hate it when…

Someone feels the need to point out the one thing you forgot to do, while overlooking the 99 things that you did do?


Wasn't I suppose to get some help?

Don't you hate it when... You get stuck doing all the work, and have no real clue what you are really doing?

The irony in some situations is enough to drive you insane.


Don’t you hate it when…

You are sick for something you have been looking forward to for months, and now cannot attend?


Don’t you hate it when…

You get looked over for a job you are qualified for, have been working for, and need- for someone with less experience, less know how and coincidently wears less clothing than you?


Don’t you hate it when…

You discover that you are not as young as you use to be, but the girl next door is?


Don’t you hate it when…

You do something nice for someone and their response is, I didn’t ask for your help?

No denying it was you.

Don't you hate it when... there is no denying you did something you shouldn't have done?

When it comes to all those little things that you hate, sometimes all you can do is laugh at yourself.


Don’t you hate it when…

You try to switch from one tab to another within your browser window-and accidentally end up closing it?

Don’t you hate it when…

You want to cancel your membership or service, but when you go to the website- you cannot find any type of doorway or phone number that will allow you to cancel?

Don’t you hate it when…

You tell someone something, and they repeat it as if they are asking you a question?

Don’t you hate it when…

You say what you think, before you had proper time to determine that you probably shouldn’t say that at a funeral?


Now it is time for a little, Don't you love...

That concludes all those things that we hate... But I hate to end this hub on a negative note, so I have included a little love in the form of a video, by myself and Mr Daniel Carter. Hope you enjoy some of the things that I just love...

Love the way you've captioned your pictures! Voted up well and shared.


lovedoctor926 4 years ago

Very good hub. Love the pics. These are some of my pet peeves too. Since we are on this topic, I wanted to mention some other things I can't stand: I hate when people just make noise when they are eating something or they make that sucking noise through the straw especially when you are at the library in a quiet area trying to read. Or how about when they are on their cell phones talking really loud no sense of privacy of anything. I will leave it at that for now.
