    ... I am gingerly drawing my eyes with the liquid eyeliner, gaping in the mirror, and both my men storm into the bathroom with the most important thing to tell me and... gee "you don't even listen to me" and "why do you have to open your mouth when you make up your eyes..."

    Or I'm brushing my teeth and the telephone does not stop ringing because the whole world suddenly needs you when you have your brush in your mouth...😡😠😣

    .... I am in the middle of washing my hair and some random keeps ringing my mobile but won't leave a message. Then I have a gazillion missed calls from the same number. But no, I will not call you back if you can't have the decency to leave me a voicemail (tightarses) 👿👿👿💩💩💩

    when someone calls you, and then spends the entire conversation telling you what they are currently seeing on facebook. My mom does this every day. And she eats chips the whole time, too. So all I hear is garbled "did you see what your sister posted on Facebook?" while she crunches in my ear. Usually after I have told her we just sat down to dinner or are otherwise busy.

    I just generally hate the phone and should probably stop worrying that we need it and ditch the land line already. That is the one that causes all the problems, lol.

    And when people don't know whether to use "less" or "fewer." When it's wrong it grates on me like fingernails on chalkboard.

    I actually know the feeling, @nakazcid , I empathise!

    ETA: Have you checked 'my drafts'....?

  • nakazcidnakazcid Somewhere in Dixie, y'all Veteran

    Thanks, @Federica , but I 'fixed' the problem by getting a mouse for my laptop and completely disabling the touchpad.

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Moderator

    I fixed it by buying a pen, and writing on paper. Admittedly, forum contributions lost ground....

    Thanks guys. Yeah it's starting to get me down a bit as trying to get out of temping and back into permanent work is a real PITA. Something has to give though so it's more of getting the backside matt-side and trying to remain calm :+1:

    ...people begin their sentences with "So..."

    "So I went to my daughter's house this weekend..."

    "So I decided to do some shopping....."

    "So my car wouldn't start this morning...."

    In verbal and written English, the word “so” has multiple functions. It can act as an adverb (She had never been SO excited), a conjunction (He was still missing, SO I called the Police), a pronoun (If you need to get cash, do So while we're near the bank), an adjective (I like to have my things arranged just SO), or an interjection (SO! You finally finished your essay or SO, you decided to turn up at last, I see!) depending on the context.

    It is not used correctly as a prefix to an ordinary paragraph, narrative or sentence!

    ...when people take important concepts too far.

    Such as:
    When students rally to close down helpful yoga programs for disabled people because they think yoga is culture misappropriation.
    When a lady I know refused to ask for help at work opening a jar because she didn't want to succumb to the idea that women need saving by men.

    I really hate it when people insult Buddhism without even having the faintest idea what Buddhism is all about.
    A friend of mine visited a Buddhist temple, posted a picture on Facebook, and one of his friends posted the comment "Sexist jerk," referring to the Buddha.

    But I really love it when you have a good mate to rely on joining in the fight with you.

    AHEM!

    I think you'll find that there are actually 2 more babes on this forum you'd better watch out for.

    I wouldn't trust @karasti to be so placid if you rile her and push her buttons - and I have been known to gently foot someone in the rump now and then!!

    It's quite a club, and what I wouldn't do to have all four of us together (The 4 Horsewomen of the Apocalypse!) and going out for drinkies!

    While she's in Italy I wanted to visit London and terrorise visit where my Irish ancestors came from in Tipperary - if they can handle it LOL

    Ah, right. Conquest, War, Pestilence and Death. The Pale rider.
    Not sure if all those representations are actually accurate, but for my part, born under the sign of Aries, with 'Mars the Bringer of War' as my planet, it's spookily accurate! :lol:

    I do believe it was Famine, War, Pestilence and Death... but then I've been reading Terry Pratchett the last few days, so my sources are not entirely impeccable :)

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Moderator

    Biblically, which is where I obtained reference, it states Conquest.... It's in the Book of Revelations...

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Moderator

    ...When people think I haven't done my homework and double-checked my references!!

    (I'm just kidding @Kerome.... I have often heard it named 'Pestilence' too... ;) )
