Tailgaters when driving. I hate someone riding my bumper. Most of the main roads here the speed limit is 65 so of course they drive 70-75. That's way to fast to be too close to the person in front of you.
I have another pertaining to the road....Ninja motorcycles. Those small really fast bikes that the person practicly lays on their belly when riding. I see them all the time going WAY over the speed limit. Like 80-90 mph or faster. If they wiped out or had a blow out on a tire they would be road hash. Motorcycles are dangerous enough, but at those speeds on a public road is just plain stupid. No offence to anyone but its usually kids riding them.

bicyclists on backroads... for whatever reason the county has deemed these backroads as bike paths... you can't pass them because the roads are so windy and there is never a straight stretch and they won't get out of your way because they are excersizing and ugh! Why can't they make them safe places to ride?

Cars with the music blaring so loud that my car vibrates to their icky yucky music that I don't wanna listen too...

I could probably go on... but I won't......

Oh wait! One more... people who post something that was posted last week, which was actually a repost of the week before, again another repost because they know it's a touchy subject and they just wanna read the hoopla!

Done now...

Oh man Farmpony I hate the THUMP THUMP THUMP music too. Someone must drive home down our road at the same time every afternoon I can feel it all the way in the house That has to be loosening their teeth or detaching their retinas or something bad. Maybe its doing brain damage

I hate being the only set of responsible parents at the "creek". We..being the tad bit hillbillish type of folks We go to the Creek about everynight. Its a great little place off a gravel road that has a metal bridge that crosses over it so the kids can jump off the bridge and its a community swimming hole. The guys around here like to go cool off and yes sometimes we bathe there in our swimsuits. Everybody usually goes there to just have a good time and visit with other folks...now the part I hate is that most of the people bring their beer and whatnot to the creek, get plastered and let their kids swim... I don't know how many times Bill and I have ended up "babysitting" because mommy and daddy have a good buzz going and aren't paying attention to their kids.oh... I have pictures...lol...I'll post some its really a killer swimmin' hole.




Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

vida I know the feeling went to dodge last night to pick up the new truck and for a quick stop at walmart...while walking back we had gang bangers (serenos 13s?) buzzing around our new truck with there supped up trucks and load bumming, nerve racking music, they figured out who the truck belonged to and didn't feel like messing around any more and took off.
Dumas that lloks like a great place to unwine at the end of the day, our state lake is about 40 miles away so we tend to head out there on my husbands day's off.....he fishes and I take the kids swimming, it really amazes me how many parent's at the lake do not watch there kids when there around the water...i watch my kid's like a hawk....even my oldest (14) who's been swimming since she was a baby....and that's not red neck at all, I take a extrea water troft and fill that up for the kids to sit in!!!



Don't ever buy a slip and slide.....bought one for the kids and it lasted a hour!! We now use a tarp and put water on that!!

Tail gaters- People who are sooooooooo eager to get where theyíre going to the point where they have to ride everyoneís butt on the road. I purposely slow down in no passing zones, and speed up in passing zones lol, I know, sick.. Iím sorry.. lol.

Bike riders on public roads when there is a bike trail no more than 10ft from the road- These are people who whine about motorist drive, and whine about how they have the same rights as motorists, but donít obey any of the traffic laws, donít pay any of the road taxes, and are a hindrance on the road!

Repeating myself- I haaaate having to repeat myself, it doesnít matter what Iím saying, if I have to repeat myself, Imma get upset!
