There is NO worse way to be woken up than by a sick child. You can quote me on that!
My little guy had a rough night last night which also means mommy had a rough night/morning/day too. While cleaning up and comforting him, I really decided it’s the worst kind of wake up call. You’re all comfy in your bed then BOOM! Tears and lots of confusion followed by lots of clean up and more tears. I hate seeing my little guy in pain, but I especially dislike bodily fluids outside the body. As I watched my 3rd Four AM episode of “Good Luck Charlie” in my delirious lack of sleep I created a list of other things I dislike.
1. Voice Activated Customer Service.
I think that I speak with proper diction and I’m easy to understand. Well that is until I try to call a customer service number. Then I must suddenly turn into a slurry mess. “Please speak your account number followed by the pound sign”. I’m not even sure how a 7 turns into an “E” but needless to say these experiences never go smoothly for me I would like to skip them.
3. People in the gym who don’t re-rack weights or clean their machine.
Ew, Ew, Ew. First Ew is for germs. Ew #2 is for being sloppy. And Ew #3 is just for not doing any of this! The last thing I want to do right before my workout is clean up after a sweaty adult I don’t even know.
4. Pushing a stroller in a busy crowd.
Honestly I’m a bad navigator and it’s only a matter of time before someone gets runs over. I really dislike it, and try to avoid it at all costs.
5. Side Tags in Running Gear.
I have enough problems with toe nails, blisters and my bad hip. The last thing I need is weird rash on my side from a strangely placed side tag. “Cut it Out” (best quote ever from Full House bonus points if you can do the hand signals too!)
6. The Kardashians and any other celebrity made up by Ryan Seacrest.
7. Coconut Oil.
I just can’t, I know it’s good for you but alas I can’t.
8. When I buy groceries and can’t carry them in all in one trip from the car.
9.When our home phone rings.
A few things are going on here. #1 I’m not sure there is a person in our house who knows for SURE what our house number is. It was bundle package with the cable when we moved in. We have cell phones we don’t use it that often. It’s basically for emergencies. #2 Our answering machine currently has 37 messages on it ALL of which are hang ups. #3 If I saw who was calling and realized I needed to answer it finding a charged phone in my house might be close to impossible. Maybe upstairs? There is always one phone charged, finding it is the trick 😉
Obviously this is a list of very silly things that drive me crazy and should be #firstworldproblems or as my brother who lives in China calls them #firstworldproblemsinthirdworldcountry.
Question of the Day: What is something silly you could do without?
