Things I Hate

A quick list of some of the things I do not like...







1. Traffic. I will do whatever is necessary to minimize my commute time. I know exactly which lane to be for all traffic volume situations. I know where the trouble spots are and how to minimize delay there. I have calculated elaborate short cuts that cut time off the trip. Some involve parking lot u-turns. Some defy logic because they seemingly go the wrong way or look like they are a long way around but, in fact, they actually allow movement and choices whereas more conventional ways are clogged. Call it a sickness, but at least I am efficient.

2. Clowns. I don’t know what it is but I find them creepy and very unfunny. This picture pretty much sums it up. That spoiled child you so hate; wrap this clown up as a present…




















3. Suck Ups. The corporate climbers, the people that look down at their peers and anyone lower then them; hate ‘em.

4. Target Shooters. I’m not talking about the people that shoot on a range or even those that shoot responsibly. I’m talking about those filthy careless idiots that head out into the forest, litter the crap out of their area, leave all their shells and broken stuff, shoot targets on live trees. Somebody should catch their dumb asses and make them clean up litter out on the highways.

5. Strip Malls. How many of these convenient god-awful things does America need? Maybe I just hate the fact that they are all the same establishments. Why do we tolerate and support these franchises?

Based on what you wrote here, I bet one thing you really REALLY hate is a target-shooting, suck-up clown stuck in traffic at a strip mall.

Yep, they are only one step removed from the very bottom (which is reserved for the ex...)
