Grumpy old woman!

I am turning into a grumpy old woman! 

So many things annoy me that never used to bother me... stupid things such as:

Drivers not indicating, especially when I'm sat at a junction waiting to turn right and I sit and wait for the car to go past only to see it turn left into the junction I'm waiting at, with no indication!

My hubby putting his plate in the sink when he's finished his dinner while it still has food on it so that I have to fish the food out of the plug hole afterwards so that the water drains away!

Cold callers on the phone. Bugger off I do not want your x, y, or z, otherwise I'd have phoned you. And I especially don't want your call if you're asking me about protected payment plans. We have NO credit cards, loans or anything on HP. If we can't afford it cash, we don't buy it. And don't sound so shocked when I say we don't have a credit card, that's the way hubby and I have always done things. If we had credit we'd spend it and then be in the shit finacially. The only loan we have is our mortgage, so stop wasting my time!

Back to drivers.. speed humps in the road are designed so that you can go over them at 30mph. OK, I realise you might want to go a bit slower but slowing down to 0 miles an hour when you are going up a hill that has 12 speed humps between the bottom of the hill and the top is really too much to bear, especially when you drive at 40mph between each speed hump. Get your act together!

My son and hubby filling the bin so full it all spills out of the top rather than emptying it and putting a new bin bag in. (ok that's not a new one but it annoys the hell out of me).

Asda home delivery. Whilst I love the fact that Asda deliver my groceries, is it absolutely necessary to put only one item in each carrier bag? When I'm in Asda I'm asked if I want a bag... erm, how else am I going to carry my shopping home. They are so miserly with bags in store they make you feel guilty if you ask for more bags. I always make sure each one is full, so I'm not wasting them, and I recycle them when I'm done, but the over-use of carrier bags on home deliveries is taking the piss. Out of the 20 bags of groceries I had delivered today, if they'd been packed properly I would probably only have had 10 bags at the most, maybe even less.

Parents at School!!! Is it absolutely necessary to stop on the no parking zone outside the school gate to let your child(ren) out of the car? Can't they walk more than two paces to the school gates? The street only has enough room for one car travelling in one direction at a time, so when you park in front of the gate, you hold the entire street up because you can't be arsed to park up and get out of your car. And to other parents who decide to come down the street the other way, surely you realise, after all you do it every day, that the street only has enough room for one car going in one direction with no room to pass.. so why do you insist every day on coming in the other direction causing chaos for everyone? And to the gossipy mums. I have no problem with you gossiping, take all the time in the world, but please move away from standing right in front of the school gates. No one can get in or our when you're stood there. On the occasions you have moved into the school yard, you stand just inside the gates and block the path so that other parents and their children have to walk around you and your push chairs over the muddy grass to get into school. Show a bit of courtesy and move onto the yard itself where there's billions of room. The same goes for home time too.... haven't you gossiped enough during the afternoon together?

Ok, I think that's it for now.. they're the ones bugging me the most. I feel better for that.
