Things that make me seethe.
  1. Phoniness
  2. Pendantic speechifying spinners who are hired to twist the truth into a bunch of goopy wordplay and think they have fooled the public.
  3. Politicians who are patronizing AND pendantic when answering a direct question and continue to say nothing but manage to fill in a lot of airtime. Do they believe the crap they spew? 
  4. Bleeding hearts who don't recognize how big their egos are.  They ALWAYS know what's best for another human being. 
  5. One issue wonders who are stuck on one tune and play it over and over and over again.
  6. Inequality
  7. Bullies
  8. Pompous asses
  9. Passive aggressive manipulators who foist their self centred agenda into my life.
  10. Really bad music.
  11. The NB Power deal.
  12. Incompetence.  Sadly, its everywhere.  Sadly, these are often the same folks who turn to passive aggressive manipulation to cover their asses.
  13. People who try to clip my wings.
  14. Dishonesty.
  15. Disrespect.
  16. Mask wearing 'fraidy cats
  17. Fair weather fans.  Stand by your team people!  
  18. The school system in this province...... Ok, this makes me want to pull my hair out. 
  19. Rigid opinionators who cannot listen to any other side of an issue.
  20. Where our whole political system is headed.

But, more than anything???  Patronizing people who look at me with their eyes closed in a fluttering way, and talk to me like I'm an imbecile. Do this to me and I can't be responsible for my actions.  I'm warning you.  I will automatically lash back if I hear that grating tone.  It rocks my sensibilities beyond my control. 

Did I miss anything?

(I agree. With all of it.)

I can't take liars.

Could you channel that energy and send me some?

Cue....I often wonder if preaching is just a form of covering up?

Jen....You know what the tipping point was for this post? I couldn't believe the audacity of those evangelical do gooders in Haiti who thought they could round up a bunch of kids and take them across a border without the necessary papers or THE APPROVAL of any authorities. Now they have been arrested..... time and energy will be wasted on their plight. The media will focus on their stupidity instead of what matters, and all we will hear from them was that they were doing "God's work...." There is a sense of ego driven entitlement in their actions which makes me seethe.

Hey Mavis! Are you kidding?? You are one of most REAL people I know. I walked by Sunshine Diner at lunch today and thought of you. YES, lets meet. I have misplaced my red journal and your phone number was in it.

I was going to ask who pissed in your morning corn flakes but you already ID'ed the trigger.

I would add to the list
'Leaches who sponge of elderly relatives'

I LOVE this post. You always have a way of knowing what I'm thinking...

awareness said...

Twain....we're surrounded by seething incentives in this "be in this place" place. I'm ready to choke on the NB Power spin. And it continues.....

Canuckguy....I was actually reacting to multi-triggers. Someone tried to clip my wings last week AGAIN. You'd think they would know better by now. :)

IC... I don't know if you know this or not, but I have a psychic gift. I can channel the thoughts of the folks who live on the "Ridge..." You guys seem to send your thoughts down river and they reach me.

I will add to your list Transphobia.

I don't know if you heard any follow-up on the "evangelical do-gooders", but I saw a news story last night that they were actually human traffickers who were posing as missionaries to gain easier access into Haiti.

So very sad, and yes, INFURIATING.

Joey... thanks for pointing out that one. I have a tough time with anyone who is openly prejudice and lives a lie of entitlement. Why people think they are better than others is beyond my comprehension. Sure there are big differences between all of us...the choices we make and the ones we have to live with that we didn't choose.... but when it comes down to the basics, we are one in the same.

Jen. I didn't hear that they were imitating, but did hear they were being charged with human trafficking and rightly so!
