A few things I find exceptionally annoying

There is no better time than a Monday to share what's annoying you.
Here are a few persnickety things that are pushing me to the edge.

  • Consecutive days of rain.  Just an FYI I would have jumped off the Ark to my death.
  • Parents who bring their kids late to school on field trip day.  If your kid has already missed the bus, you've essentially signed them up for ISS all day.
  • Unreliable parental units who cancel their visits because of the weather.
  • Tween children who don't want to shower or bathe.
  • Vacuumed sealed jars that won't open no matter what you turn them with, bang them with or twist them with.
  • Being in charge of taking out the garbage.
  • Children being removed from their parents because they have stage four cancer.  WTF?

  • School board meetings that strategically place nonsense on their agenda in an effort to conceal the real meat of the meeting at the end.
  • Any meeting that opens with an executive session.  Note to boards that do this:  Shame on you!  Put the executive session at the end instead of making people wait 45 minutes to an hour for a 7 p.m. meeting to start.
  • School Curriculum Fair Projects that aren't made by students.  I know you signed the same "I won't do the work" paper that I did yet your student was able to make an eagle out of three pieces of newspaper, a clothes pin and Elmer's glue and it looks better than a taxidermyed specimen?
  • And while we are on the subject of curriculum fairs, either do the work at school or do the work at home but don't have some students required to do it at school and some required to do it at home.  That inconsistency upsets people.
What has you exceptionally annoyed?

Not gonna lie...I'm shocked at how similar school districts are everywhere. Sigh.

I found one thing that often helps with such jars is sticking the point of a sharp knife into the lid. It opens up easily after that.

The one about removing children from parents with late stage cancer is truly sad; and unfortunately a typical example why I'm completely disgusted with society as it is now.

I think I would have jumped off the ark just from the animal smell.

And is the child or the parents with cancer? Either way, I don't understand that at all.

And yes .... all these things are annoying ... exceptionally so.
