When you’re driving, what’s your biggest pet peeve?


No Blinkers. Come on people. Is it really that hard to push that lever with one little finger- I mean- you throw up that finger atleast a few times a day giving someone the bird- why not use the same mechanics to use your blinkers. Its amaazing- how one flashing little light- can inform ALL of those around you on where you intend to go- and also lets us know that you have actually put THOUGHT into your next movement- rather than blindly shooting across four lanes cause you see a one second opening. If everyone would use blinkers and actually follow in the direction that they are telling traffic that they will go- wed all be happier andd see many many less accidents.
P.S. Turning on your blinker as you car is pulling into the parking lot- does not count. Advance notice people- everyone likes a bit of advanced notice. :)

· Fireworks exploded in the sky, terrifying Sparky. The little dog hid under the bed and growled when Diane tried to move him. Diane decided she would have to…. tranquilize him, if there was anyway she and her guests were to have a good time drinking wonderful home made margaritas (very strong may I add) and light of some imminent fire starters- this dog was going to have to be put out of the way. So she called her Vet. He expained to her that this was a normal occurence. Since lots of animals are frightened by the loud noises coming from all around outside- it is almost a routine procedure to ensure that you animal does not stress out.
Now ofcourse Diane didnt say this aloud- but in her head- shes thinking, stress out the dog?!? Im going to rip my hair out if this dog tries to bite me again. She hangs up the phone and hurries down to the vets office, where he has the perscription waiting for her. "Give your animal one pill every four hours as needed. Two for large animals. They should take effect within 20 minutes of administering."
"I have two daughters. In the event that they were to ingest one of these, what would happen? What are the symptoms?
" Actually they would just take a very long nap- and feel wonderful when they wake up. It is not recommended, however- thay are safe."
Diane rushes home in hopes that she hasnt missed too much of the celebration. As she is pulling into her driveway, she notices more people have arrived. Then she sees it. Her sister is here. A mild flush of panic spreads across her body, I wonder if hes in there. You see, Molly married this thing- by the name of Gregory. This thing- has tormented me since the day I met her. She doesnt seem to notice but it infuriates me to see her treated in such a demeaning way. If hes around, I get no time with my sister. Its Molly, do this, Molly could you get me that. She doesnt even have time to relax. But she continues to live this way -because she loves him. So now, not only do I have a pesky yapping and biting doggy on my hands, I have, the thing.

She stepps through the door and everyone is greeting her with a smile, more hugs, everyone is merry and a few drinks in. (Fantastic margaritas) Not even 5 seconds go by before I hear the first- Molly!!!! I need a refill!!! Quickly comes my sister, to his every beck and call. When will I get to have my sister back? Oh I wish, once. Just once, I could have my sister here enjoying herself, rather than playing slave to her husband. I give sparky his pill, which is bacon flavored, and he hurried back under the bed. Within twenty minutes he was sound asleep, not a care in the world. Thank you Mr. Veteranarian. Thats when I began to finish my wrapped pigs in a blankie. You take little hotdogs, cover it with pancake batter, and then wrap a piece of bacon around it. This is great. Why didnt I think of this sooner. MOLLY!!!! Can you get me some of those pigs things your sisters makin? Yes dear, right away. In she comes. You know what Molly, how about you go and sit and I will take these to thing... I mean gregory. Thanks and she reluctently walkes back into my living room. Wheres those pigs? Sis said shell bring them to you.

So I finished up with our apetizers, set them out on a platter, and had a seperate plate ready for King Lazy. Here you go gregory, enjoy. He scarfed them down so fast I'm not sure he even tasted it.

Twenty minutes later he was sound asleep and my sister and I were free to enjoy the fireworks. :)
