Updated on December 15, 2016

Not Keeping Up With The Kardashians

I have no problem with the Kardashians but they are just people like the rest of us. Who cares what they ate for breakfast?

Entertainment

You know what grinds my gears?

1. Black and white TV shows or movies. Come on people it has been 60 years. Colorize it!

2. Kardashians. I get it the family is rich. Next.

3. Rappers singing about killing. OK, you are hardcore.

4. Television repeating the same shows. Come one people, we have thousands of shows and movies to choose from.

5. Over Paid Actors/Actresses. You are important for our entertainment but, it is not like you are saving a life or something!

Randy Moss

Randy Moss is a great wide receiver as he proved playing for the Vikings and the Patriots. However, in Oakland, Moss proved himself lazy and only showed half an effort.

Sports


You know what really grinds my gears?

1. Loudmouth Athletes. I mean certain athletes, who are rich and famous, run those chops. Shut up and play your sport, you know your job.

2. Greedy Athletes. Contract holdouts, refusing to report to training camp in football or declining a boxing bout until the money is outrageous.

3. Bad Decisions in Boxing. Guys, stop it. This is hurting my favorite sport. Fighters are being robbed of their wins.

4. Alabama Crimson Tide Fans!! Come on guys, grow up, it's just a game and can you chill with the Rollllllll Tide?!

5. Baseball. Set a time limit already. Isn't there a time limit for batters?

Politics


You know what really grinds my gears?

1. Hillary. Enough already.

2. Donald. Enough tweeting already.

3. O'Reilly Factor. Loud mouth with an opinion but, yet he was caught in a rather big lie himself.

4. Lying in politics. Politician's should be made to live up to the promises that are made during their campaign.

5. Fake politicians. Fake smile, fake walk, fake talk. Just be yourself!


Irritation

Traffic Jam

A bunch of things about automobile traffic bother me but none more than a traffic stand still.

Traffic

You know what grinds my gears?

1. Traffic Jams. I can't stand just sitting in slow traffic. Expand the interstate lanes.

2. Drivers on cell phones. Get Blue Tooth, folks.

3. Drivers going to slow. Either speed up or get over grandma!

4. If a cop has someone already pulled over please don't slam on your brakes as if he is coming to get you. He is not paying you any attention.

5. One-Way Streets. It has been one hundred years. Fix the streets already!

Poor Management Skills

One of the worst things you can have on the job is a rude supervisor with zero people skills.

At the Job

3. Irate Customers. Do you really have to curse me out? Is it really that big? Take a chill pill.

4. Someone who gossips. Not a good idea in any situation.

Commercials

You know what grinds my gears?

1. Long commercials. Why do commercials have to be so long?

2. Loud commercials. Commercials get louder as you leave the room.

3. Repeat commercials. Why do we only see the same 3 or 4 commercials each day when there are many, many commercials?

Salesmen can be very pushy and it irritates me or should I say, grinds my gears.

Sales People

You know what really grinds my gears?

1. Door to Door Sales. Are you serious? I got Rottweilers be careful.

2. Pushy Sales (Car Salesmen). If I want it I will get it. Stop breathing on my neck.

3. Phone Sales. Really? I am eating and trying to have family time. Do you really have to call at 7:00pm as I am trying to eat dinner?

4. Peddlers. If you want me to buy something, instead of setting up in a parking lot, get a physical store.

Yummy, No Gross


You know what really grinds my gears?

1. Grapefruit. Is it an orange and a lemon? I do not know and, I am not willing to find out.

2. Celery. I dislike a few other veggies but, none more than this jungle stalk. Gross.

3. Diet Coke. What is this? Nothing more than a watered down coke. It tastes like 7 ice cubes melted in it.

4. Potted Meat. What can you really say except, GROSS! Who even knows what this "meat" is?

5. Pigs Feet. This is the one of the dirtiest parts of the pig. I know some people eat them but, I don't think I could stomach them.

Robotic Customer Service

Fast Food Drive Thru

You know what really grinds my gears?


1. The robot sounding intercom. I mean, you make millions selling hamburgers and you cannot have a clear sounding intercom.

2. Condiments please. Why do I have to beg for ketchup after I paid for a meal....and with an order of fries.

3. Getting the wrong order. How hard is it to give me the correct food if I ordered it 4 minutes ago.

4. Why can't you hear me? I am screaming, and have and have a complicated order only to be asked, can you repeat that?

5. Low health score. You got time to drop fries in the grease but, you don't have the time or take the time to pick up a mop every once in a while?

And that is what grinds my gears.

      What grinds my gears is implants in general but especially in places where they just should not be!

      Go natural people and show something real, be happy with who you are :)

      Love it! It's so good to let off steam sometimes, but then it's good to get back on the track and be more positive about the world that we help to make the way it is.
