8 Things That Drive Me Crazy
Beth added this one; it drove her crazy that there were only seven categories in Crazy 8s.
1. People who say "If we don't fight them over there, we will have to fight them here."
2. People who are always late arriving, I think it shows a total lack of respect for others.
3. Car salesmen
4. All the networks that have to have their logo in the corner of the TV and run their promos over the show I am watching.
5. People who don't treat Skyler with respect, or who go overly patronizing towards him.
6. When I am walking my dogs, people who tell me there is a leash law when my dogs are well behaved and their little yappy demon dingo from hell is going crazy.
7. Anyone who would throw a co-worker under the bus to get ahead at work.
8. People who park in the handicapped spaces who don't need them.


  1. What a lovely 8x8! Man, I wish y'all lived in Atlanta so we could hang ...

    "Willow" is one of the loveliest songs ever. I have a great story about hearing her sing that live that I should tell one day ...

  2. I'm wondering how the "wanna fool 'round?" line is working if you say it so much??

  3. Thanks beth, it would be great to meet you, as well as some of the other bloggers out there.

    Oh Captain my Captain, I keep trying if only to hear the words come out of my mouth.

  4. The new stuff # 2,5,7 and 8 drive me crazy too. I noticed you said car saleMEN not sales lady, gotta thing for the ladies huh?

  5. Cheer: I have never had a bad experience with a women at a car dealer, it always seems to be some guy in plaid asking me "What'll it take to put you in this beauty today?"

  6. What if I want to throw a co-worker under a bus...but I don't care if I get ahead or not?

  7. Their dingo ate your baby!

  8. Raven: Then by all means, push away!

    GKL: Ha ha ha he he he giggle..

  9. beth's #8 drives me NUTS -- i hate when people do this..........

    and for the dogs -- as long as they are behaved and i can play with them......

    i just worry they would get hit by a car... that would scare me

  10. I would never throw someone under a bus but I might tell someone to follow the sound of my voice into traffic.
