I’ve been tagged by my lovely friend Mummy Matters to write a post about things that bother and annoy me. Well I had a good think about this one because whilst there are things that bother and annoy me at different times in my life there are some things that always bother and annoy me.
Firstly like Mummy Matters children with snotty noses really annoys me, as she said, tissues aren’t expensive please parents just give it a wipe before it becomes all green and crusty, something that bothers me even more than the actual snotty nose!
If any of you have read my post Stop and Think before you Stare will probably already know that people who stare or make negative comments when they see J having a “moment”, a tantrum or at times a complete meltdown really annoy me, especially when it’s a parent! Come on people, surely you don’t have a child who never, ever, not even once, has a tantrum?
Another thing that annoys me is when people tell me that J is being naughty or attention seeking or that I’m over reacting or that his behaviour is down to my parenting skills. Wake up people, he has ASD, he’s not a naughty child and I’m a good parent, we’re all doing our best!
Bad manners also annoys and bothers me. There’s really no need for it, my Nan always taught me that manners cost nothing but are worth alot. How hard is it to say hello, hold a door open for someone, remember to say please, thankyou, excuse me………… lady in the queue at the post office last week it would have been so much nicer if you could have said excuse me instead of pushing past me, I’m just glad that J wasn’t with me, (we may have had a meltdown and then she would have regretted pushing!).
Ok one last thing that always annoys me is speeding motorists. Speed limits are there for a reason, like the ones outside schools that some motorists just completely ignore. To the driver that hangs on my bumper and beeps their horn at me because I’m doing the speed limit and they’re in a rush……. tough your action will not make me go any faster. To the drivers who speed and then moan about being caught, here’s a thought……… don’t speed! Please remember speed kills!
Now it’s over to you, here’s my tags
