Friend Makin Mondays.........

Kasey over at ALL THAT IS GOOD has this deal every Monday that is called "friend makin Mondays". It is all about getting to know people and sharing all about yourself. This week she has asked us to share 5 things that really tick us off.....here we go.......

1. RUDENESS! I HATE it! I just don't feel that rudeness is necessary...EVER! It really makes me grit my teeth and sometimes it makes me want to slap people silly.

2. People that are in front of me walking as slow as a snail. It does my head in.

3. Liars.......since I have moved to South Africa I have been lied to so many times I cant even count. AAAgghhh....just tell me the truth you moron! I will be alot less ticked off if I have the truth.

4. Racism.......living in South Africa has really opened my eyes to racism. My children are African and my husband and I are white...oh the things we hear and the things we see due to this apparent phenomenon. One lady crashed her shopping cart into the shelves because she couldn't stop staring!

5. The fact that there are so many calories in all the foods that I want to eat....that REALLY ticks me off!

So there are my 5......what ticks you off? Let me know, have a vent!

I love that you joined us! I've never had a friend that lived in Africa! Now I do! Yay! Your #4 made me sad...and your #5 made me laugh, because I agree!

Have a great day! and I hope you come back to visit! Are you and your husband missionaries (I noticed below that you started Sunday school)?

Number 5 made me laugh too. That is always so unfair.
I also don't like slow walking people. Puh-lease move over people, I am actually in a hurry...to get away from you!

Tanielle said...

Nice to meet you! You are sooo far away! I am jealous, I'd love to visit, never been out of the U.S.:-)

I agree with your list totally! Why do people have to be rude? And calories...what's up with that?

Your children are gorgeous!

Have a great Monday, and I look forward to getting to know you better!

Just what are those Woods up to? said...

I loved your list, and agree!

Your number #4 kind of reminds me of Harlem (and it is very sad) and I agree with you #1, #2, and #5!!! I also hate wrinkled paper and sexism (I seem to get a ton of it at work...)

Racism...when will people learn that there is no place for this!

South Africa, very cool!

Love the title of your blog! And I'm happy to have met you through FMM!

Sounds like you encounter the same stuff in Africa as we do in the US- rude people, liars, slowness...bummer!

Hope yo "see" you again! Have a great week!

heidi said...

LOL at #5! THAT is rude, isn't it?? Sheesh!

I hate slow walkers, too. Just move to the side and let me pass, please!

Number 5 is my favorite...I am trying to do WW...but I keep wanting all the Easter Candy...:(

I love that we can all connect with you, even in South Africa! That's fantastic! I totally agree about RUDE people -- we should just all be sweet and kind!

#5 is fantastic! It totally ticks me off that all the food I love is "bad"...it's so backwards. I can't imagine how it must be for your family. Racism is an awful thing. So sad that anyone has to live through that.

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Shannon said...

Definitely agree with all of them but especially number 5!! :)
