What Is A Pain In The Derriere To U?

Buonasera, Ladies & Gents,

What do you consider a pain in the derriere ?

Firstly, there are several character traits that I would consider undesirable and perhaps a few items, I have no control over, for example: waiting longer for a bus for instance ... I just read on my Android Tablet ...

What I find a real pain in the Derriere:

1) Men who are "Know it Nils" and "Know it Naughts" ...
2) Racism ...
3) People who attempt to get something for nothing ( not paying for it ) in a dishonest manner
4) Fanatics & Chauvinists ...
5) Closed Minds ... and a dead end street & life philosophy ...

Look forward to hearing your Pain in the Derriere Stories ...

Have Lovely Week,
Buonasera,
Margi.

My biggest PITA moments are:

Waiting in line to spend money, sometimes I think it takes longer to spend money than it does to earn it.

Having to listen to other peoples conversations in public or when they are on a cell phone.

People who are late or otherwise undependable.

As I get older, dealing with people in general is a PITA!

4Meanthem & Tax Lady: Plumbing !

4Meandthem, Sorry about the letter D missing ...

Thanks for the posts ... I only hate plumbing if I have a stuffed drain in the shower ...

However, this surely has some double innuendos !

Have a lovely evening,
Ciao, Margi.

Id say, these go without saying, and are worse than a pain in the bum.

A pain in the bum for me is paperwork. So much of what burocracy is, is just time wasing. You fill things in because you believe that promises will be fulfilled after you fill in the required paperwork, then you wait and wait and wait... I have been waiting for years for some stuff to get done by government offices, concerning taxes etc... and doubt it ever will get done.

*Highway lanes being closed for miles & miles for construction when they are only working on a 50 foot section.
*People at drive-thru windows who expect you to take an oversized cup & straw with your left hand while they cover the only place you could possibly get your hand around with both of theirs.
*Trash pickup people who can't walk 2 feet to put your trashcan back where they got it & leave it either in the road or the middle of the driveway.

The above and also people who gawk or rubberneck at wrecks. I admit, I am as curious as the next person but I purposefully avoid looking so that the officer/ volunteer fire dpt person doesn't catch me at it and wave me on through.

  3. Waiting for assistance while employees are standing around chatting.
  4. Peopl with greasy, dirty looking hair. Makes me want to barf right on them.
