*Newly pregnant women who (like I used to) use the word "fat" to describe their current state. As if they didn't realize another HUMAN BEING GROWING INSIDE OF THEIR BODY wasn't going to cause some changes.
*People who don't use their turn signals.
*Being able to play flawlessly in every single choir rehearsal, but when the big Christmas performance comes, making massive mistakes and feeling foolish.
*Children who still have not learned to flush toilets.
*Coldness. Cold. Cold air. Cold snow. Cold rain. Cold wind. COLD. NESS.
*Realizing that, even after three months from the start of my prep time, I am still NOT DONE with Christmas stuff.
*Parents who take their children home during church for "nap time" or "feeding time" or "it's too hard to deal with these children in church and so instead of toughing it out to show them that church is truly a good place to be and they better get used to it unless they are puking their guts out because the role of parents is to teach by example, I will bail and just take them home."
*Parents of the above who think I don't get it. As if I've never wanted to take them home. As if I've never gone to church alone with FIVE CHILDREN. Or wandered the halls with unruly kids. Or had to fulfill callings with toddlers in tow. Who do they think I am!?!?
*Puke. Stomach-flu puke.
*Laundry (as if I had to list it).
I promise to have more positive posts before Christmas. But in the meantime, what are your pet peeves?
