I was listening to George Carlin's classic comedy bit of People he can do without and thought it would be fun to come up with my own list and share it with everyone. Also, the relitives mentiond on this list know they are there and it is taken from my page on www.wbzg.net Enjoy 1. women who complain about the toilet seat being left up. Hey you're a big girl put it down yourself, if you're afraid of falling in, look before you sit down. That's what a smart person would do. I don't expect you to put the seat up for me so don't expect me to put it down for you 2. people who complain about the toilet paper being on the roll the wrong direction. If you're that concerned about the roll of toilet paper you have some mental issues to be worked on. 3. people who complain about those of us who drink a large glass of orange juice in the morning. My mother used to do this one and would get mad when I would point out how dumb this was 4. people who will talk loudly to blind people. I run in to this one quite a bit. We're blind not def we can hear just fine. What will make us go def though is your yelling 5. people who instead of talking to the person with the disability will talk to the person with them. for example,"what would he like to eat". People apparently don't realize that they can talk to a blind person like they would anyone else. if someone talks to me that way I deduct about twelve points of their iq 6. people who get mad when you correct their grammar. Hey if you don't want your grammar corrected just speak proper English, it's that simple. 7. people who will complain about something you did four years ago. Move on already we're tired of hearing about it and it makes you sound like an eight year old. This is usually done by women but I have known a male to do it once in a while. 8. people who when they are about to lose an argument will change the subject and bring up something completely irrelevant that has nothing to do with the topic 9. people who try to use guilt trips or empty threats, or power trips if you don't do or think the way they want you to. 10. people who actually think there is a right way to squeeze the toothpaste tube. If you're that concerned about the toothpaste being squeezed, again you have some issues that need working on. 11. when I'm eating a hamburger those people who will tell me how unhealthy it is. trust me I am well aware of how unhealthy it is but I don't care, I'm eating it anyway. If I want your input I'll ask for it. 12. people who think yelling at you will get you to listen to them. what most people who do this don't realize is that is a great way to get them ignored and they sound like idiots 13. people who think you can be to old to play video games. My mother in law thinks this one. Saying you're to old for video games is like saying your to old for TV. It's a form of entertainment with no age limit. Then again, my MIL is a little strange. 14. people who swear. If all you can say is f this f that f the other, you're not saying much and probably should be ignored. 15. those people who respond with,"it is where ever you last had it." when you ask them if they have seen an item you have lost. they apparently are to dumb to realize that if you knew where it was you would not be looking for it. my mom was guilty of this one and it took me several times of telling her that before she finally got the idea. 16. people who help by doing everything for me. I'm blind not helpless. if you want to give someone with a disability a hand, ask them if they need one. Do not barge in and take over. If they say no they don't need a hand simply say ok and walk away. I have a relative who used to think that doing everything for me was somehow helpful and then she wondered why I never did anything around the house. duh. 17. people who talk to someone in a wheel chair by looking at the top of their head Look them in the eye like you would anyone else. 18. newscasters who say,"we'll see you tomorrow." at the end of a newscast on TV. No you won't, you can't see through the other way and trust me, you probably would not want to see some of your viewers. 19. when someone tells me to be careful it is icy out on days when it is snowing. I'm thirty five. I think I know by now that if it is snowy, it probably is going to by icy.
