I hope that you are enjoying my posts from Linda’s Just Jot it January as much as I am enjoying writing them.
Here is today’s prompt word.
Your prompt for January 12th, 2018, brought to you by Fandango, is “Aggravation.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Fandango at his blog, “This, That, and the Other” to read his post and say hi! Here’s Fandango’s blog: https://fivedotoh.wordpress.com/
Some things that aggravate me:
- Lateness. Either if something happens and I end up being late, or meeting someone who is late turning up!
- Bad manners. That annoys me so much as it is so unnecessary. It doesn’t take much effort to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you.’
- Entitlement. I get rather cross when people feel that the world owes them a living and they expect everything to fall into their lap without putting any effort in!
- Liars. I understand the necessary little white lies on occasion, but some people lie about the most stupid things. I have to say that I lose a bit of respect for someone if they tell a lot of lies.
- Unpleasantness. We don’t know what goes on in other people’s lives. A smile or a quick chat can go a long way to making a person who may rarely see anyone feel valued. Being grumpy or rude can make that same person feel worthless.
This list could go on and on, but I don’t want it to sound like I am moaning about everything and just being a grumpy old sod.
Oh, one more thing on the subject of things that aggravate me. I don’t like it when my daughter shortens it to ‘agged’ or ‘aggy’ which seems to be all the rage at the moment!
Nor do I like the fact that I seem to be turning into my mother by the sound of the above!
I agree with you on all those things sis!
We are two of a kind and both pretty traditional Sis ?
We are indeed sis
We all turn into our mothers eventually! Ha!Ha!
Yes so it seems, Daffy ?
Oh! Bless Sis great post great rant! If you are becoming your mother I am already mine!! ?????
HAHA! It is inevitable, isn’t it?! ??
Indeed it is !!????
Ha yes. Every single one of those aggravate me too! It really doesn’t take much to be a nice, polite individual and it really does go a long way! Can make such a difference to someone’s day.
Absolutely, Hayley! 🙂
Good list! I probably aggravate myself the most! Have a great weekend!
Oh yes, I get very aggravated by myself a lot, too.
I understand all you mentioned… most of all the lateness and liars!
Yes, both are so disrespectful! 🙂
Yes, exactly. Perhaps that is the reason I cannot stand it!!
Haha, Judy, don’t we all turn into our mothers eventually. I particularly dislike entitlement and we get a lot of that here in Africa.
It makes me so cross. I do not have a huge amount, but what I have has been worked bloody hard for! 🙂
And rightly so! All makes good sense to me!
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
