Why is it that when I pull into the drive up at the bank I get behind the person who is slower than molasses going uphill in January? Just recently I pulled in behind a person who was obviously trying to refinance his home through the drive up window. That little drawer went in and out so many times that it was actually hot-to-the-touch when I finally got my turn! “AAUGH!”

Why is it that when I go into Wal-mart there is NO ONE going through the checkout lanes. Cashiers are standing around just waiting for someone to ring up. But just the second I finish and I turn my basket towards the cash registers, there is a mad rush by every shopper in the store to see who can get in line first. I then find myself at the back of a ten person line holding only three items. “AAUGH!”

“Be patient, bearing with one another in love.” ~Ephesians 4:2

So, what makes you go, “AAUGH!”

    That same person in WalMart who has to dig in the bottom of their purse for correct change….

    Or at the fast food place the guy who has five separate orders..(go inside!)

    And the waitress who walks by my table five times and sees my empty tea glass and then comes up and says “do you need anything”…..I am choking so I can’t speak….

    Slow Drivers in the fast lane and Drivers who ride directly beside someone on a 2 lane road while cars pile up behind them and they see no point and speeding up and getting over or even slowing down and getting behind the other guy. “AAUGH!!!”

  5. Angie says:

    People who refuse to read the instructions that I have very meticulously typed up about how to complete a computer task, then tell me it won’t work.

  6. That Girl says:

    The dufus who won’t pull out into the intersection so that I can turn left as soon as the light starts turning red.

    The lady at Wal-Mart who can’t get her gift card to work and then turns to the rest of us in line to tell us how sorry she is… JUST MOVE ON, SISTER!!!!

  7. Rick Morgan says:

    That verse should be hanging up at the front door of Wal-Mart

    Having to push about 14 buttons on an important phone call and then the only human you get says,
    “please hold, your call is important to us, about 7 times.”
    But worse than that is people who gripe all time. lol gmj

    When you are standing in line with a little girl crashing on your shoulder and for some “strange” reason her credit card won’t work? Yet, she keeps trying to use it?!

  10. Maria says:

    Dr. Office, they make you come in at 2:30 and won’t see ya to 5:30!

    Dial-up internet!

    Hitting every stop light!

    People that don’t turn their signal light on until right before they turn and then you are trying to break without flying through the windshield.

    Screaming kids in the back seat!

    Viagra Commercials!

    Dear Lord forgive me, and give me patience to overcome life’s little quirks! For in all of them you are trying to teach me to be more like you. I am glad that God isn’t interested in our comfort as much as He is interested in our character =)!

    Blessings to you all,

  11. Mike says:

    church people who try to micromanage the homeless ministry I have been asked to lead.

    Cyclists who do not recognize stop signs or traffic lights and ignore the rules of the road yet they feel entitled to ride on the roadways slowing traffic down. Thanks for listening.

  13. freetolive says:

    Sorry Trey! That person at the bank was me. And it was a cash out refinance, thank you very much. :)

  14. cwinwc says:

    It may that because I teach middle school where I have a potential for multiple “aaugh moments” a day that I don’t have too many aaugh moments.

    O.K., I have one. Sitting in a Parent Conference when a parent says to me of their 12,13,14,14, or 16 year old, “We really don’t know what to do with Jr. Do you have any suggestions?”


  15. Larissa says:

    refinance your home through a drive in window…hahaahaha…that made me laugh. (as a loan officer myself)

  16. nb says:

    When there are 26 check-out lanes and only three cashiers.

    Or the self-check lane that insists I haven’t bagged my item that is very obviously in the bag!

    Or the cashier who wants to comment on my purchases.

    Or I hit every stoplight on the way to work.

  17. Stoogelover says:

    Having to go to the Post Office … at least six windows and only one postal employee.

    Southern California drivers.

    Most people who work for fast food places.

    Telephone systems that will not let me speak to a human and the companies that use them.

    What seems to be a total lack of concern for customer satisfaction at just about any given store.

    This present election and anyone in an elected office.

    Organized religious systems.

    Walking out of Guitar Center empty handed.

    Five little words:


  19. Laura says:

    I’ve been thinking about this all day and haven’t come up with one. I know there are lots of things that bother me, but since I’m home (and or out and about) with kids all day, nothing really seems to get to me anymore.

    I’ve realized that I can spend time being frustrated or choose to attempt to find something positive in every situation (sometimes easier said than done)

  20. Jen says:

    Kids who say “I don’t get it,” when you haven’t even finished the lesson or given the assignment.

    Husbands and children who say “Do you know where my ______ is?” even though they haven’t tried to find it.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Stoogelover what state are you from? Not all So Cal drivers are bad!!!

    People that get angry because I’m doing the speed limit or that honk because I make full and complete stops when appropriate. People that don’t obey school zone speed limits.

    Kids raising their parents instead of the parents raising their kids.

    Bailouts/rewards for doing the wrong thing!

  22. Mrs. Terrazas says:

    Gods teaching you to slow down and enjoy life. Maybe thats a great time to think….LOL who am I kidding that drives me nuts too!! :)

    Skinny people who ask how small the small is whenever I am next in line and craving enough food to feed my entire family…
