Perhaps she thinks it's an ideal idea?

I think a lot of people here would argue that buying more yarn is an ideal.

Another thing that just really bugs me is impatient people. I remember asking an employee at Joann's Fabrics (she was working the cash register and the only employee around to show me where a particular item was. There was a customer waiting to pay, but I had the attention of the employee first. The customer said something really rude to me. I was absolutely shocked at her audacity...my body was shaking. As I walked out of the store, I stopped and told the lady that her comment was extremely rude and I hoped she was happy that she had totally ruined my day.

I've never confronted a person like that before. I hope I shocked her.

Ill-mannered children (always makes me want to slap the parent)

People who have no manners when using their cell phones in public

People who chew with their mouth open

People who eat a full course meal while having a conversation on the telephone

People who bring young children (i.e 2-8 year olds) to a movie with a PG-13 or R rating

Parents who dress their children in designer clothing to go to PRESCHOOL then get upset when their child's clothing becomes messy

People who are cheap on purpose

People who must ALWAYS be the center of attention

People who know that you are married and constantly ask you, "When are you having children?"

People who know that you don't wear a weave or dye your hair but ask you, "Is that your real hair?" because you happen to be a woman of color...Yes, women of color can actually have long hair that is naturally a reddish brown!

Yep, I agree with this one 100%. Lazy parents.

I just had to laugh out loud at this one. I have a good friend who is originally from Trinidad and she complains about this one on a regular basis. She is dark skinned and has beautiful long hair.

Teachers, and others who should know better, ending sentences with a preposition ("Where's it at?") That makes me CRAZY I try to teach my children correct grammar and then their teachers say this all of the time!

That is SO rude and embarassing! It happens to me all the time.





I hated when I was pregnant, people ASSUMED it was perfectly FINE to touch my belly.
I got SOOOOOOOOOOOO mad at this guy one time...when he walked away...I grabbed his butt...and said...oh so sweetly..."Oh, you dont mind do you?"

People who complain about other people's education or lack thereof.....

People who complain or make snide remarks about other people when they don't even know them...

People who have no forgivness and patience for their fellow man....
