I can empathise with most of those Valerie. ;)

Brian Miller said...

ha i feel you on most of these, esp the ones that are rude or involve a phone call to sell me something...

Valerie said...

Pearl, I think I'd better do a 'like' list before I get too depressed...grins.

Brian, if I start on about phone calls I'll never stop...smiles.

Ooh, I love Halloween and oranges.
And joy riding in the way of just riding around, not going anywhere in particular. I do that with hubby sometimes. It's fun to drive around the city and look at the big buildings, etc. But not joyriding, the crime, where stealing a car is involved. ;)

I think I can agree with most of the rest of your list.

LOVE your list, Valerie!

And there SO MANY of these that I must agree with you on!

"Call centres"

OMG...I get about FIVE of these a day, which is WHY I check my caller ID before answering the phone. If I don't recognize the number, I won't pick up the phone.

"Public lavatories with small cubicles; no room to move or sit grubby sinks and toilet pans defunct water taps overlarge waste bins taking up valuable space."

AMEN!

Have a wonderful weekend, dear lady!

Ron, we get calls every day, sometimes in the evening and early morning. I get so frustrated with them.

Well that is a list, and it finally dawned on me around T that this was an A-Z list. I am so perceptive sometimes. I hope nobody on your list crosses your path any time soon. Have a good one, Val.
