What makes your blood boil?






For me it is a toss up between telephone solicitors and politics.

To be honest, we rarely get calls from telephone solicitors anymore.  Back in the day, I think they had radar for calling at the wrong time.  Thank God for the invention of caller ID and the "unavailable" tag . . . and DoNotCall.com.

The world of politics has become so bizarre it is unbelievable.  Day by day, the United States is looking more like a joke to the rest of the world.  The media has gleefully jumped in to further weave the web of deception, incompetence and sheer lunacy.

Distracted drivers really make my blood boil.  One person's "important" text message can possibly result in the death of another.  And I think that everyone is in way too much of a hurry.  Why not plan things out and leave a few minutes early and not put another person's life at risk because of the stupidity of another constantly running late and driving crazy.

How about the price of everything going up . . . but the paycheck stays the same?

What most people call "entertainment" these days would have been considered porn back in the day.  I'm so grateful that I was able to experience a relatively "normal" childhood.  My parents worried about the length of a man's hair . . . today's parents have to worry about their children who want to watch the MTV Video Awards with so little left to the imagination.  

The food police make my blood boil . . . they need to worry about what their children are doing and forget about what we are eating.  I've gone on about this one before . . . it really upsets me!

This morning's news revealed that Ariel Castro, the Ohio man who kidnapped and kept three girls hostage for a decade, committed suicide.  Finally some good news . . . he saved the taxpayers of Ohio a ton of money.

What is making your blood boil today?
