Annoying Things About Summer Weather

Annoying Things People Do When It Gets Warm

In places where there is a cold winter, there is a hot summer. It is understandable that people get tired of being cooped up in the house during the cooler months, but it's still annoying how many people act when the weather gets warm or hot again. Below are just a few of the things that take the fun out of the warmth. They are actually plenty more than the few listed below. Please feel free to share your own ideas at the end of the article!

Loud Music In Cars

I always know when its warm outside even before opening the window or checking the weather forecast. How? By the loud, shaking bass I can hear coming from cars driving five blocks away. I thought this fad would go away. In fact, according to my calculations it should have gone away about five years ago now. That, sadly, is not the case. Despite supposedly trying to be unique with the deep, resounding bass in these cars, they actually all sound the same. You don't know if they're listening to Barbie Girl, Death Metal, Rap, or Hip Hop. Not that it matters I guess. Nothing played that loud can sound any good unless you're at a concert.

Rarely will you hear this bass during the cooler months. It's as if there is no point in pimpin' in the winter, or fall. But then again the beauty if bass is that drivers are letting the public share in their love of music. Spreading culture, in a way.

Motorcycles

Everyone who owns one brings it out when it gets warm, whether they know how to use it or not. There are the racing cycles which are quite and cool, or the massive, loud choppers that make me feel like I'm in a Vietnam War movie with Chinooks hovering overhead and the smell of Agent Orange in the air and Charlie in the well trimmed bushes of the supermarket parking lot. Not a good combination if you're of a nervous disposition.

Weaving in and out of highway traffic on a motorcycle is one of the most beautiful things that you can probably do if I'm to believe riders. Not so much fun for car drivers and semis though. But no need to worry, if the cool factor is waning these riders can always pop a wheelie at 160 mph just to show everyone who's boss.

Parks full of Trash

People who otherwise hate to do anything outdoors or healthy somehow feel the need to make their way to parks in hordes when the weather gets nice. They don't actually walk or play any kind of sports though. No! What do they do? They bring tons of hamburger meat, steaks, bacon, cheese, pop, chips, beer etc. It's surprising that they actually walk the 20 feet from the parking lot to the BBQ area on their own two feet. But wait. There are many of course who drive their pick-up trucks right to the feeding grounds. I guess it is more comforting to have your gas guzzler close by just in case you run out of hamburger buns.

And what does this trash produce? You guessed it, more trash. At the end of the day these parks look like city landfills because the trash cans are too far away to make use of them. You also always get to see some heroic attempts at playing sports by otherwise totally sedentary specimens: huge people with bellies hanging out "playing" volleyball is always a joy to watch. If the ball is anywhere outside of arms reach then it is simply not played. Too much effort might take away appetites, and that is the most important reason to go to any park after all.

Parking lots are fun places in parks during warm weekends. Despite "Lot Full" signs you can see minivans, SUVs and pick-ups circling for hours until a spot finally opens up. These spots are only acceptable if they are close to the grassy area of the park though, because walking across a parking lot is not something that is relished. Under no circumstances should one park further out and walk to the park. That would undoubtedly ruin an otherwise fun day of consuming.

Air Conditioning Everywhere

This is mainly true for the US: Once it gets a little warmer outside, all stores, homes and cars start using the AC. Despite complaining all winter long about the cold and damp, when summer comes along everyone decides to create those same cold conditions. Mind blowing. How about opening a window instead? I can seen countless cars drive by in beautiful, pleasant warm weather with their AC on. I don't mean unbearably hot weather either.

Many office buildings automatically slap on the AC during the warmer months, especially if they were built with un-openable windows. Who ever thought of building offices with windows that can't be opened anyway? Skyscrapers I can understand, but normal 2-3 story buildings have been built the same way in many instances. many office workers wear short sleeves outside and sweaters indoors because of the cold, bad smelling recycled cool air. This doesn't nothing to clear anyone's head. Going between such difference temperature within a few seconds does nothing more than make everyone feel even more tired.

These were just some of the small annoyances of summer without even mentioning ticks, killer bees, yellow in the public pool, loud children playing outside at all hours of the day, and ice cream trucks.

The positives outweigh the negatives however. It's best to be careful and watch what others are doing though. The warm weather tends to numb people or make them more careless. Tragedies never happen in warm weather, or so many seem to believe.

Oh, and try to lay off the heavy burgers and steaks. They'll make you even more sluggish and slow all summer long.

      @pstraubie48 : thanks for your comment. Yeah, watering the street can be very annoying. It is a total waste of water. Although I guess it is still better than just letting lawns die. However, it is best to just give the lawn areas close to the street or sidewalk a really good hose down instead of using the sprinkler there.

      You are correct ...people do some annoying things. I know that I must do some myself and am probably even unaware of it. \

      The one annoying thing that really bugs me is this: I drive by a business or home, for that matter, and the sprinkler is on in this time of water issues in so many places. The lawn looks like a fine plush carpet. Ok..so that is not all. I continue to observe and the sprinkler is sprinkling water on the ROAD and a puddle is swishing down the street like a river unleased in a storm.
