Hope all the Moms had a nice "Mothers Day"
Fun Monday May 12
Here are da rules.
I know we all try to be sweet and kind to people the majority of the time. But let's face it....we also know that sometimes we can be a big jerk. It could be that you experience road rage from time to time. Come on - it's confession time! List the small things you do that make you a jerk and elaborate just a bit on each one. Please tell me I'm not the only jerk around here!
OK, now this one should be a cinch, most of us are jerks now and again and I’m sure people who know me are nodding their heads vigorously when thinking of me being a jerk!!!
Just for openers; I’m a male and its well known (within female circles) that this means an inherent ability to not see clutter, creases, dust and other things like that, so to a little more than half the worlds population I guess that qualifies as jerkiness, strike 1.
I don’t participate in memes or fwd on all those “nice” little things with pretty pictures and soppy music, strike 2.
While I do get annoyed by discourteous drivers I don’t suffer from Road Rage as such, and I’ve driven far enough over a lot of years to realize that I do occasionally make mistakes too,
I have also spent enough frustrated hours at a computer to know that I’m far from an expert with an even temper, strike 4.
My experience as a husband of 40 odd (very odd!!) years with two different ladies (not at the same time…. I’m not that deeply into self destruction) has certainly taught me that I have the ability to annoy the hell out of any lady who is unlucky enough to be Mrs Right, strike 5 (Affidavits available on request from said wives).
I have the ability to forget names within minutes of hearing them, and faces within days so a lot of people probably see this as the behavior of a jerk, not realizing its just one of the prices that we pay for getting old, strike 6.
I think that I’ve dug this hole deep enough now so I’m gonna stop before I bury myself, I’m going to claim that “getting old” thing as the excuse for many of the traits that I have that other people find a bit annoying, just wait a few more years all you baby boomers, you’re turn is coming up FAST.
Now go and visit some more Fun Mondayers at Sauntering Souls and let me get back to my nanna nap.
