Cause we tell them to use inside voices inside and outside voices outside. And we're afraid if we stifle them in the use of their outside voice they will become teenagers and stab us in our sleep.

P.s. my neighbors kids always scream. Drives me nuts. I don't like kids other than my own though.

We live across the street from an elementary school.

Recess is torture.

We live next to a middle school and when it's Spring Break of they're out for Summer it's eerily quiet here. Sometimes I swear to mercy they MUST BE dying they're screaming so blood curdling loud.

Before we moved in our landlord worked on the place for about 6 months and was here every day and he even warned us about the noise to make sure we were up for it. He still asks about it from time to time so it must have really drove him bonkers.

What's almost as annoying is the morning and afternoon pick-up/drop off and the parents honking horns and yelling and driving like maniacs.

SCG, you feel my pain.

I trimmed my hair. In shower with no mirror. I only took a little off the bottom. But no more Carol Brady flip!

Omg, I so, so do. Because my town is so small, the elementary school is just two blocks away from the high school. So there's a LOT of traffic in the morning and also around 2:30-3:00. All annoying parents. And when there's not traffic, there are LOUD kids walking home from school. I swear they scream just to annoy me. >_>

The parents picking up/dropping off their kids do this annoying thing where they BLOCK ALL FOUR DIRECTIONS of a four-way intersection by parking/waiting on both sides of our narrow streets so they can pick up/drop off their precious snowflakes just feet from the door. Like, no. We have crossing guards for a reason. Your kids can walk a few feet. LET ME THROUGH!

When they have a 2 hour delay, parents are dropping off their kids right as I'm heading to class, and I find myself seeing red sometimes.

I have just been waiting for the day that one of them blocks my car in just so they can be close to an entrance. I'm going to get my stuff together so fast like I'm going somewhere and just go lean against my car with my arms crossed waiting on them to come back with the nastiest side-eye I can muster.

I think they must have been blocking the driveway of a neighbor because she always has big orange safety cones out now.

It's mayhem out there!

My icky neighbors have a lot of kids over all the time. I get the combination of screaming and loud country music. I wonder if the parents of those for whom they babysit or welcome know how much marijuana they smoke, let alone deal?

I know I should be working more but not feeling it today again. Going to leave right at 5:30 and go pick up penang curry, spicy 4 star from my favorite Thai restaurant.

I have a letter with some pretty stamps on it. I think it's from Kat. I'm so excited to open it!

I recently worked on a word document with financial tables that had a separate column for the yen symbol, and a separate column for the end parenthesis. It was a mess. I told the person that I was doing the work for that he was absolutely not allowed to try to make tables himself ever again.

I have this problem that my MIL clearly treated my husband like more of a "special snowflake" than my mom ever did with me.

I said something about the school bus one day, and my husband was like "OMG, You rode the bus??????". Um......yeah? Because in my world, that's how you get to school. His mother drove him to school every day, so he seems to think that our future children will turn into delinquents or die or something if they ride the bus.

I swear, I didn't know a single kid that *didn't* take the bus growing up (99% of us lived too far to walk, especially considering the distinct lack of sidewalks in my town). No one's parents drove them to school.

I say his mom was too overprotective, because he was an only child and he was the center of her universe. He said mine was too lax, but my mom raised three goody-two-shoes honors students - she may not be a helicopter parent, but it was pretty clear what was expected of us and I would never call her "lax".

Oh boy, raising kids is going to be fun.

Get on your hands and knees with your butt in the air BEFORE class.

I'll never forget the time a crazy friend of mine had stomach pains and I jokingly told her she should get into this pose and she proceeded to actually do it. I took pictures and still email her that picture from time to time to remind her.

I just mention that roger ebert passed away and you launch into this thing about how you saw him at an event and how you saw him come to your building often? Stop.

No one gaf in general, but especially right now ugh.

i am going to post this here and i don't care how egotistical i sound:

i look FABULOUS today with my new haircut, my new navy and cream leopard-print blouse along with my ankle-length navy skirt and all my pearls, and all this loveliness is *wasted* with me sitting in my corner editing other peoples' verbiage and no hot man waiting for me at home with a martini and dinner on the table!

so there!
