Things That Make Me Irritated In the Morning

    Television

    Okay, ever since a guy told me this about 30 years ago: televisions burn less electricity than anything - I have left mine on through the night. Well, I compared my light bill back then and indeed nothing changed much after I left it on all night. I do this most nights still, no problem. I'm hooked on a local channel because they have really good re-runs early in the morning, they have Alvira (Mistress of the Dark who's actually hilarious) on at 3:00 am Saturdays and Svengooli at 9:00 pm on Saturdays. I like this little channel that's been around maybe 40 years locally. But during the week, at about 6:00 am, they have two female hosts. I like them both. But the one that I have met personally, has the most irritating cackle I have ever heard. She laughs at EVERYTHING, so unless she's forcing this myrth, she's something like a kook maybe. I want to scream 'alright already....it's not that funny' but then, I don't want to be as kooky......

    The Smell of Something Burning

    Why can't people cook without burning something? Is that a tall order? I live in a Co-op building and though I don't feel cramped at all, I do when people are burning bacon, toast, oatmeal. Anything that's burning leaves a bad smell. It wakes me up but with a headache. For real.

    The Janitor Vacuuming

    Well, I would say this is a good thing and I am not known for any debris but my goodness, does he linger around my end of the hall. Again, I want to say "Alright already, stop" but I just wait patiently for him to finish. I'd be mad if he didn't vacuum.

    The Telephone

    The answer and hang up calls. I get those. I have ordered my phone company to put a call blocker on and I have tried to use it but I don't have the written material to back it up. I've had my phone number for sometime and at first the calls were less frequent. The caller calls my number and it sounds as if the person is in a clinic or class or store because there's a lot of people interacting. She leaves it on I think deliberately. I've had to call her to see who she is, of course she got nasty. Next step, police.

    Motorcycles

    This is a seasonal evil. The motorcade of motorcycles usually commences in May. I have actually sat and talked on the phone and the person thought I was talking from outside. I live right off a BIG street that can take us to Indiana. The motorcyclers must think this Indy 500. The cycling is soooo loud and unrelenting for long stretches time and goes on through the summer from early morning to late at night. Really, I'm not sure what happened. Homes are better; at least the sound of birds singing and dogs barking and the cute woodpeckers pecking, is normal. But now, it's pretty hard to get ready! Peace.

    Each and every one of the things you listed would drive me crazy, too! H5 for your patience in putting up with it!

    Your point about the janitor vacuuming by your unit was so funny. I used to live in an apartment and that was always super annoying. Great list, friend. :)

  • PriscillaBenfield 1/16/2011 Flag This Comment

    LOL!!! Love your list. The vacuuming thing is so true. That has to make you nuts because if you did yell he isn't going to hear you over the vacuum noise.

    OMG Listmaker mentioned burnt popcorn. That is sort of the WORST of all. That buttery, nasty burnt odor has made me take my clothes for cleaning. Go out in the clean air with that odor on your clothes and it actually reeks. lol

    Oh, I could just smell burned popcorn as I read this list. THAT makes me irritated period. Good things on the list, Penelope.

    Penelope, you remind me of myself. It's always sounds and smells with me. I like your list!

    You are very patient with the things you listed here that annoy you. I think you are doing great to put up with these.

    I fear I've have more than 5 annonying things early in the morning. Don't wake up well. Can't speak coherently. Need total quiet! Good HI5 list!
