SMALL TALK SIX - What YOU Do That Makes ME Uncomfy...

So, I've ventured over to Momdot this morning and I've decided to participate in their Saturday meme which is called "Small Talk Six." Blogging tends to simmer down on the weekends (I know it does with me personally) so what a better way to keep things going each weekend than to talk about six little things...the topic changes weekly, so checkout Momdot or just keep checking back on my blog...

The small talk theme for today, April 25th, is this...

6 things other people do that make you personally uncomfortable

And, my six are as follows:
  1. Invasion of my personal space - ESPECIALLY if you are a complete stranger - I mean, when I'm at the grocery store or in line at the post office, please back the eff up off of me. If I'm in line or if I'm paying for something you do NOT need to be anywhere within at least two feet of me. Thank you.
  2. Seeing other peoples underwear - it's called underwear for a reason, people, because you wear it under your clothes. That being said, it really makes my skin crawl when I can see other peoples underwear. You know, guys who wear their jeans so low that you can see basically their whole butt hanging out of their pants or gals who bend over or sit down and have massive amounts of thong/g-string/granny panties showing. Ew, ew, ew.
  3. Thinking your you-know-what doesn't stink - is this one really worth an explanation? You know who you are and, I am sorry to tell ya, but it really DOES stink.
  4. Mouth noise of any kind - whether it be snoring, chewing gum, smacking your lips, chewing with your mouth open, slurping - yuck, yuck, yuck. Please don't do it around me. Thank you.
  5. Letting your kids run amuck in public - control them, discipline them, hold their hand, talk to something! I don't let my kids act like banshees in public, so please don't let yours act that way. Besides, being run over by a runaway stroller that is being "driven" by a child who is too short to see over or even around the stroller isn't fun (true story).
  6. PDA - OK, so back in the day when hubs & I were dating we used to make out at the movies, but we were young and we also sat in the back row. These days some people take PDA to an even more extreme level...get a freakin' room! Less is more, people...less is more.

Whew...that was hard! So, what are your six for this week? Be sure to head over to Momdot to read what other mom bloggers are saying that people do to make them uncomfortable!

I agree with all your point. The PDA is definitely something that makes me uncomfortable.

You're so right.
I never let my kids run around or misbehave in public. Now that they are pretty much grown, I am really intolerant of people who let their kids run a muck.

I am sitting here laughing at your number 6 - I have it on my list and today I actually saw a couple out on a porch feeling each other up and making out. I yelled out my window - get a room!

Also, I agree with allowing kids to run amuck - I used to work in retail and the store sold fine china - I hated when parents would let their kids come in and run around, jump on our display beds and then watch and at times encourage them. I would, as an employee, have to get my manager involved at times. Ugh - A-Nnoy-ING

Number 2 is a good one. My 18yo is guilty of butt showing. Drives me nuts.

the mouth noises get to me too! and the kids. Oh lord I want to smack parents who let their kids run wild somedays! Oh and I'll admit to being guilty once in a while of the undies showing. I own low rise undies just for the days when I want to wear lower pants but sometimes it just happens. Though I do always try and push them down when I realize it.
