Things That Irk Me

Updated on June 28, 2010

Booger, snot, loogy whatever you wanna call it.

There are lots of things that irk me. Lets start with every time I go to the store to get gas, I look down and there it is, a green snot. I can't walk ten feet with out seeing one of those nasty things! How gross.I can be walking across a parking lot and there there is that slimy green stuff again.

Going to work same thing, and going to school again. A person can't get away from it. I wonder if we can start a new law,that anyone gets caught doing this awful thing can be fined. Sounds good to me.

Didn't anyone teach there sons not to do this nasty thing? I say sons because the thought of a girl doing this is unspeakable! This I would not be able to understand.

Flush It!

Another thing is no one knows what a courtesy flush is. Every time I use a public bathroom.Someone has been there, and sure enough they flushed alright, but not good enough, there's still crap in the bowel damn it! Now I ask you. "who wants to see that"?. This happens more than not. I don't know what happens in the men's restroom, but in the women's restroom it's not pretty. Please Flush a courtesy flush. I'm sure the janitors aren't too thrilled to see this monstrocity either.

Wet Towels

Another thing, people that leave food in the refrigerator uncovered, or even worse leaving an opened can uncovered in the fridge. Another would be crumbs in the butter, or peanut butter in the jelly.Not to mention wet towels on the floor.

 I went to a friends house and could smell a mold and musty smell in the bathroom. It was a pile of towels and was clothes on the floor. They couldn't understand why they had knats. It all boils down to common sense. Someone can blame it on how they were raised. Born in a barn,or were you raised by wolves? Come on people clean it up already. All it takes is a little common sense, or is it just laziness?

Dirty Diapers

Now you probably think Im a little OCD by now or whatever, but one of the worst pet peeves that really irk me is that whenever I go to the supermarket, I see a dirty diaper just thrown on the ground. There could even be a trash can 5 feet away from the diaper, but no, some nasty person decides to just change their baby's diaper and throw it on the ground, where others can see it, smell it and be grossed out by it. Really people get a grip already!

      You are not OCD. These are things that I see and it disgusts me as well. I could tell you a whole lot more that is disgusting but I'll keep my mouth shut. Great hub!

      I agree with you 100% about all of the issues you raised. You mentioned the men's bathroom so I'll tell you the worst, most uncivil part of that public space: men piss all over the toilet seat regularly. Who wants to sit in somebody's piss—or have to clean it up? That pisses me off.

      The toilet humor has been going around for ages and it's still bugging me as well. What Tom has said makes me chuckle. That people cannot rise above animals in some ways. True at that. Hub up, Rose.

      Some people don't have respect for other people especially people they don't know- A general respect for others is not present these days. It is sad that people cannot rise above animals in some ways- well written, and your not insane these thing bug many of us.

      So funny. I have never noticed green snot on the ground and now I am afraid that I might start. I have been, sadly, enlightened.

      A great read! I can't resist this one:

      Women with big sweaty boobs who tuck a a few dollar bills in their damp cleavage, and hand it to you at the concession stand or gate UGH!

      As a teacher, I have had to work gates and stands at school events, and have had to (UUUUGGGGGHHHH) take their money still stinky and damp from their boobs!Almost gags me!

      I hear ya. These are some things that bother me too. One that really bothers me is when my family always leaves the trash overflowing instead of taking it out and putting a new bag in.

      This one was kinda funny and kinda gross. The worse was the baby diaper. I've also noticed guys spitting in public on the ground. That kinda grosses me out. Dirty toilets are the worse, and mildewed towels and other clothes smell sour. Maybe someone will learn something from this hub. (: v

      Well I'll tell ya what, pilgrim...this hub don't go down too good with popcorn. I must choose wisely next I have the urge to snack. But I got through Rose. What you are experiencing here in what I have referred to in one of my early hubs as the human cockroach factor. Mama cockroaches don't care what their baby cockroaches do! Read it sometimes, it'll scare's called "Cockroach Factor". It's written from a political sense but it applies across the board. We are slowly being consumed by vermin. Thanks for reminding me! WB
