Things That Drive Me Nuts #52Lists2015

52 Lists 2015, loving life one list at a time | Sarah Celebrates

Hello there =)

We all have some things in life that drive us absolutely bonkers.  Like so crazy that’s all you can think or talk about once they happen.  They irritate you to your core and make life unbearable for the time being.  And for the most part, they’re usually just minor annoyances to other people.

Today’s list is pretty much a list of gripes.  Just letting me vent and get my irritations (often irrational) out in the open.  Do you drive me nuts?  Let’s see ;)

Things That Drive Me Nuts - #52Lists2015 - List 26 - Sarah Celebrates

Incorrect Use Of The Word ‘Actually’

The day my nephew learned the word ‘actually’ was torture for me.  Every sentence began with it, no matter what the conversation was about. Now, I will admit I have used it incorrectly but I will correct myself and apologize.

People Clipping Their Nails In Public

Ew, ew, ew!  The only public place I will excuse you is a public restroom.  Those are meant to be gross.  Please, please, please stop clipping your nails at a restaurant or at work.


Handy little tool but I despise having to check it.  Dial into voicemail, enter your code, listen to the message, delete message.  So. Many. Steps.  If I don’t answer, send me a text.

Stray Lines On Paper

I like neat, clean paper.  If I mess up, even on a to-do list, I will start over.  I was writing notes one time and my boyfriend walked by, grabbed a pen and drew a line on the top of my paper.  He swore he’d break up with me if I started over.  His attempt at getting me over my clean paper issues.

I painfully left that line there…

Sidebars On The Left Side Of Websites

So sorry fellow bloggers, but if your sidebar is on the left I probably won’t hang out on your site long.  I think it’s been proven that ads and widgets get more clicks when they’re on the left but it’s very painful for me to look at.  Sorry =(

Pop-ups On Websites

You know when you’re reading an article, it’s really good and then all of a sudden.. BAM!  The screen greys over and a box pops up in the middle trying to get you to sign up for something.  That is my cue to leave the site.  Drive me nuts!  As a blogger, I understand the pop up and the want to obtain email subscribers.  I really do.  I just can’t do it.  Ok on my pop-up list: the little Pinterest/Facebook follow on the lower right-hand side of the screen.

People With No Sense Of Humor

How do these people survive??? Seriously?!  I get that most people don’t have the same sense of humor that I do, and that’s ok.  Well, maybe you could work on that but… Everyone needs to laugh and joke sometime.  If you lack a sense of humor, this is your cue to leave.

People Who Acknowledge Every Thing You Say

You know the ones.  They’re muttering an uh-huh, yeah, ok, ohhh or something of the sort at the end of each of your sentences.  Sometimes while you’re still completely one.  I work with a few of them… painfully.

That’s it for today’s list!  Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to check out The List of Lists, updated weekly, to keep up on my #52Lists2015 and find some ideas for your own list series!  There are some prompts for upcoming weeks =)  I’m open to suggestions too!

  1. Actually…Uh huh, yeah, ok. Ohhh! *sends voicemail*



    You are a particular little bee. I have a friend that has something similar to your neat paper guideline (avoiding the word ‘condition’…ups) and her boyfriend kept messing her up so she gets over it. It didn’t work – but I can see your fiance is giving a better fight.

    Curious, why left ad bars annoy you?

    I am 100% with you on the pop ups. I too, understand the need for them but, unless it’s a person that has commented in my blog, I usually leave.

    I won’t even comment on the nails thingy. Argh on the mental image!

    1. ::giving evil stare down:: Particular, crazy.. which ever fits better ;) This week’s to-do list has been re-written twice… With the left sidebars… I guess it’s because they DO work, meaning I can’t stop looking at them. I barely get through articles because they keep pulling my eyes. Down with pop ups!
