    Cardboard egg cartons? ?

      It’s a texture thing. A horrifying texture thing.

    Oh….theres so much more….!

    Yes yes yes to everything minus #14 and especially #27. Worse than cardboard egg cartons is styrofoam…as in the shit that was banned like 20 years ago but is still used in the States.
    Fighting because of the feet but also because of the sweat…yuck.
    As for the bugs I would add ladybugs because they are evil, catrpillars and butterflies because they are gross, and junebugs because they snack on my plants and don’t know how to fly properly.

    Kindred spirits we are

    Haha ? … leaf blowers my number one! And as I sit here typing this I can hear two of my neighbors going at it with theirs. But really I feel that you some how got a hold a copy of my list of life’s annoyances. ??

    I agree wholeheartedly with all but about 3 items on this list.

    LOL, canned peas would be a lot higher on my list. Not sure I want to Google earwigs and see what they look like! I could be scarred for life.

    Total yes to #20, 24, and 28. Basically, I hate people who don’t get out of my way, which is why, sorry to say, I do #26. Driving down here is basically a competition every.single.minute.
