Virtual Flip Offs 4

I missed last week's Friday Flip Offs, so bear with me friends, I have a lot of pent up flips to share:

#1 People that have no concept of personal space need to back the hell up and FLIP WAY OFF.

Whether, it's in line at the grocery store or sitting next to me in a doctor's office waiting room, my space is mine, not yours and I don't want to feel you sneeze or smell your breath. I don't like to be crowded in or touched by anyone that I'm not related to or have known longer than an hour. You give me the heeby-jeebies!

#2 When walking to my car with stroller in tow, I'm going to need several minutes to put my tot in the car, fold and stow the stroller and get myself situated, so for all of you that like to creep behind me in your cars because you think my parking space is 50 feet closer to the entrance, FLIP OFF!!! Park somewhere else and do the extra walking, you probably need it!

#3 My hair deserves a BIG F-you! I am so tired of blowing it straight and flat ironing the hell out of it because it is a wavy mess. We have always had a love/hate relationship and I'm over it! I'm asking for a Brazilian blowout for the next gift giving holiday.

#4 And last, but not least, I have a special FLIP OFF for the navigation system in my car. It usually gets me where I need to go, but I hate the fact that I can't enter an address or make a change to anything previously entered unless the car is in Park. This is a colossal pain-in-the-ass and extremely annoying. Every other car I have had or been in, lets you be the judge of potentially dangerous button pushing while driving. I really need to look into tripping the system.

A HUGE big thank you to Gigi of Kludgy Mom for developing this much needed weekly virtual detox!

Happy Friday, everyone.

The best is yet to be.

Hi Tonya!!! I have an anti-invade-my personal space thing too! hate it!

and I hate parking lot stalkers!!! I usually just turn around and wave at them :) Kill 'em with kindness. That's the Southern way. :)

Excellent list, as always. :) I loathe people in my personal space. *Huge* pet peeve.

And the waiting for my parking spot thing? Also annoying. I don't rush. If you want to wait, good for you. But I'm not going to hurry like a fool to accommodate you not wanting to walk the extra 50 feet. & you know what? I'm going to walk the cart to the cart storage thingy, too.

My hair is painfully straight. It does nothing. Ever. Under any circumstances. So I understand this from a different perspective...But there's nothing to be done about mine. *sigh*

& for the navigation system? F that. I *HATE* things that try to think for me & save me from myself. Besides, my Hub usually enters the address, etc. FROM THE PASSENGER SEAT. So no danger of driver being distracted. Stupid thing.

People that invade personal space deserve to be crammed into a small box with one another for an extended period of time. Just sayin'.

Oh lord, I can't stand standing in line and feeling people all up on you and their breath in your hair. Skeeves me out.

I LOVE my personal space bubble, and feel my heart racing when it's invaded by a stranger!

Great flips, hope it helped!!

The navigation system on the Highlander is worthless and I totally regret paying for it. FLIP OFF from me too!!!!

Great list! Yeah your navigation system is annoying that you can't change stuff unless you are parked. It is not always convienent to park somewhere and mess with that stuff..ugh...
Brazilian Blow-Out, huh? I don't know if I trust those so-called straightner processes.. It doesn't even last too long.. How much is it?
Oh those parking lot people are so ridiculous! Yes, you should just wave and smile.. Kill 'em with kindness! : )
