    I'll tell you what peeved me today were the couple who sat behind us at the movie theater and rattled bags (like chip bags or something)and chewed for the first 20 minutes. Fortunately by the time the movie (American Sniper) actually came on, they had pretty much stopped. The whole frikkin theater was basically available for them to sit when they came in, but no.....they had to jam us up.
    Its a shame youth is wasted on young people

    Why, Rob? Why?? Why are you doing those terrible and embarrassing commercials???
    For the same reason Marie Osmond does those ultra annoying, incessant Nutrisystem commercials. Mullah. Oh, and she had a little help from surgery. Did you know she got paid 1.7 mil for this gig? It is the same as Kirstie Ally, and all the other numerous celebs that do commercials. All I can think is that they have no other source of income; as in they are has beens.

    I can't stand the progressive commercials and the furniture commercials, especially the chaise ones. Another thing is when I'm at the library looking for books and another person crowds around me where I'm at. I leave the space and go back after they leave. Its usually at the carts with the new books this happens.

    Marie Osmond certainly is no has been. Like her or not, she's definitely a working woman making quite a living for herself and her kids. She has written books (some are craft books of her own designs, and has a line of embroidery designs) she has her Doll collection, she's been on Broadway, she has the Nutrisystem deal (so what if she's had "work done" - she looks great and she's keeping that weight off that she gained [50 lbs]) She and Donny did their annual Christmas show during the month of December (which I got to see this year at the National Theater) AND she and Donny have their Las Vegas show.

    That's some has-been!

    Certain people in general today have no common sense; I guess that is the bottom line. This world today is like it’s all about me and not you. Selfish fuggers. We can't blame it on the parenting, adults are supposed to know right from wrong. I guess the common sense part is the ignorance they inherited over the years has no cure and where not challenged enough by the people they offend. Last thing that kind of irked me in shoppers, lady has EBT card and has to put back about 15-20 bucks worth of stuff due to lack of funds. Common sense people would know there balance before going to the store, WTF.

    Good points. I guess that is why I don't get riled when I come up against these type of situations. Why waste my energy or turn it negative. All we can do is the best we can, make changes when we can, and ride it out. I guess I feel sorry for people that are so oblivious to others, so I try to make up for it when I can. The world is still a good place even though it seems to be getting worse. It is what you make of it.

    Why are people so rude??

    I wait an appropriate amount of time

    But if you are effing with your purse or phone too long, then my groceries are coming down the belt whether you are done bagging or not.

    I just looked up the spelling for mullah, as in money. I thought I had it right. Here is the definition. Thought it was funny. Haha on me! How dare I not be politically correct!

    Mullah

    Mullah is derived from the Quranic term Mawla. However due to the ambiguous and varied use of the term in the Quran, some publishers have described its usage as a religious title as unquranic. Nonetheless it still sometimes used to refer to a Muslim man or woman, educated in Islamic theology and sacred law.

    Moola

    [ ˈmo͞oˌlš ]

    NOUN

    money.

    I agree. I have told vrai before that she has excellent writing skills. She is definitely original in her sayings. And, most cause a laugh. Some, not so much!

    If she were ever to write a book about this forum, it would definitely be a best seller!
