Now you may think that these things cannot be true,
But following extensive research, something that I do,
I can completely reassure you, these annoyances are fact,
So please forgive me, if I appear to be a little short on tact,
Driving behind anyone wearing any kind of hat
Is like crossing the path of a big, black cat
You’ll be stuck driving below the limit of speed
By the your long journey’s end, you’re frazzled indeed.
Watching television with this sweet husband of mine,
He talks and lectures the TV, earplugs would be sublime,
Grabbing a cup of tea quickly on the commercial break,
You open the frig to find the milk is empty- oh for pitty sake.
You need to call a company to ask a simple question,
The never ending electronic choices, gives me indigestion.
Why or why can’t there be a human to answer my call,
I promise I won’t talk long, the time needed would be small.
I love children dearly but I think its important to stress,
Parents should parent, its their responsibility to address,
There is nothing more annoying than going out for a fine meal,
To have little ones scream and run wild, to me, its a big deal.
These small annoyances puts my patience to the test,
I remind myself not to sweat the small stuff, that’s best.
When you consider all the things that others must endure today,
My annoyances are just trivial, so I’ll just smile and be okay.
