MONDAY MAYHEM meme: Annoying Holiday Stuff

Today's meme is called "The annoyances of the season".

By now many of the happy feelings about the holiday season have turned to annoyances for some of us. Here is your chance to express yourself. Have fun!
1. What annoys you about the holiday music?
I enjoy holiday music, but I hate it after 10:00am on December 25th. ENOUGH already!

2. What annoys you the most about holiday shopping?
People are freekin rude!

3. Tell us about someone you know who is annoying you right now.
It's a thing not a person. The live tree we bought fell over after Bud and I had it all decorated. It smashed a favorite old family heirloon ornament of my mothers.
 4. What is annoying you online this week?
Plagued with messages from Amazon and Overstock about savings on shipping and stuff.

5. Is there something that people say or do this time of year that annoys you?
Merry Christmas spoken all the time bothers me. If I celebrated it, I wouldn't mind.

6. What is the most annoying behavior anyone can have this time of year?
Being rude.

7. What is more annoying when you are shopping- screaming kids or people who cut you off in the stores or at the mall?
Screaming kids drive me bananas.
 8. What is the one thing that does not annoy you this holiday season?
The feeling of family, history, giving.


  1. Did I ever tell you that my middle name is Rude ROFLMAO!!!! And why 10:00 am? Is there a significance to that time? Good answers. Have a great week :)

  2. Hehe, Thom, I believe that by 10 am all the gifts will have been open, and everyone settling into watching the kids or getting a meal ready and back to blah again. I absolutely think the cut off should be 12 noon officially. Nothing worse than listneing to xmas carols at 5pm driving home from somewhere. Need to hear rock n roll again STAT. Thanks for commentin. : )

  3. That once happened to me. I was sucked into the Radko must-buy frenzy and my tree fell over (might have been a pet). What a waste of money. Sure put things into perspective.

    Thanks for playing
    Have a great day!

  4. #2 & #6, tell me about it! The one I had last night, I was about to say "f* the job" and smack her one. The good thing, my manager even saw how she if she calls to complain...I've got back up! WOOT!

    #3, bummer that sucks. I'm cheating this year, I'm too lazy to deal with the damn tree so it's not going up. It's not like there will be presents under it anyway, and it's one less thing to keep the cats away from.

  5. Harriet, that Chris Radko story always makes me shudder...the one he tells of why he started the company. I have a squirrel blown glass ornament and several old heirloom 1950s ones from my parents. Only one didn't make it, but the squirrel hook catcher top is broken off. We got it back up, secured with twine to the wall, and redecorated. We named it Harold.
