Come along my friends – It’s Pet Peeve Wednesday! Squeals.
Now is the time to get those icky pet peeves off of your chest. We all have them. Most of them just tuck them away, shake them off if you will. Today though to help out with the rising stress levels, go ahead and rant. I will listen. I’m all ears… it might look like I’m sleeping here but I listened to mom rant this morning. I’m a good listener. What’s bugging you today?
I’ll even let mom go first here –
Dear White SUV on Old Dixie Road this morning, You almost ran me off the road while you were in such a hurry to get to your destination. I’ll give you the doubt that maybe you didn’t see my small little Smart car RIGHT BESIDE YOU. Funny thing is though – you were in such a hurry to run me off the road, pass me like you were being chased by King Kong himself and guess what. I met you at the next traffic light. I was right behind you while you were applying your make-up in the rear view mirror. Perhaps you saw me when I waved?

hahaha… maybe Mrs. White SUV made a black point on her nose with that make up stuff? as a symbol of shame for acting like a furia in front of a smart Smart?
05/06/2015 at 1:21 pm
That could be brother and should very well be what she did. She made mommy HOT. It’s like she didn’t even see her when she charged over in her lane. How dare her huh? XOXO – Bacon

THAT is too funny. Grrrrrr. Hey, I love your snoot! It makes me smile! So, here’s my rant: Dear New Neighbors, Welcome to my ‘hood! I love meeting new furiends. Butt, why don’t you pick up the poo? My peeps don’t like stepping in it. And I have enough kitteh bon bons to keep me busy. I don’t need to accidentally step in your poo. Don’t you know that it carries germs? Don’t you know that we live in the Chesapeake Watershed and that water from our storm drains goes into the Bay? Along with YOUR POO? Here’s hoping you step in so much poo and that you track it back in your own house for a change.
Thanks, my porcine pal. I feel better now.

Awesome buddy! It’s good to get these things off of your chest. No stress means happy anipals. Now your new neighbor – might I suggest you putting some poopy bags in their mailbox to their attention. Maybe they will get the hint. What are your new neighbors thinking? Don’t they know us anipals like no poop zones on our walks? XOXO – Bacon

You don’t even like grass…..I shudder to think what my piggie friend would do to step in poo. yuk.

The texture is so torturous on my hooves. I just hate it! I walk on the sidewalks here. If I walked in poo – oh my gracious squeals – I just hate to think about that. I think I would have to bag all of the poo and deliver it to a certain person’s porch that didn’t pick it up. Just sayin’. Pigs can be devious like that – snorts and rolls with evil laughter. XOXO – Bacon

Here is my pet peeve:
Dear young ones, I get it, your up to now short life is so much more important than the few hours I have left as a middle aged woman, you NEED to block all the doors on the subway train and cut me out on the escalator. But why then, when your time is so precious, don’t you go on in that speed and come to a stillstand the moment the escalator reaches the next floor and we all have to manoeuvre around you?
05/06/2015 at 3:33 pm
Well said my friend – well said. Don’t you feel better now that it’s out and in karma field? It’ll come back to them. Watch and see. XOXO – Bacon
05/06/2015 at 3:50 pm
Of course I do feel so much better now!
05/06/2015 at 3:29 pm
Right now my pet peeve is that sneaky laundry that keep breeding overnight Or just when I think it’s all washed and done…a shirt with a stain that must be washed immediately if there’s any hope of being able to wear it again appears out of no where. Where was it hiding when I started the last wash? (And Molly and the cat are both asleep, so can’t blame them…besides Molly leaves tooth marks and the cat leaves fur) Whew. Better now
05/07/2015 at 10:02 am
There you go – get it all out now my friend. Don’t you feel so much better? Better off the chest than inside brewing like a volcano. Well done. XOXO – Bacon

My pet peeve is when the squirrels get away from me.
05/07/2015 at 10:04 am
Snorts! I can see how that would be troublesome my friend. XOXO – Bacon

Do they get away from you too?

All but Journalist Rocky the Squirrel. Me and him have deep conversations in my magical back yard here at the Hotel Thompson. He’s a pretty cool guy. XOXO – Bacon

Hello Bacon pet peeves…got a bucket full…here is my BIGGEST one:
Dear ( I use that term loosely) People who live in the building or visit here: I am on the patio with my cat enjoying my coffee or tea or reading or talking on the phone & do NOT wish to be disturbed!!!! My patio & little bit of front lawn is NOT a thoroughfare nor am I sitting out waiting to talk to you or listen to your complaints. I am NOT a Counsellor. This is my residence & I would like some peace & quiet. Oh & I am not the Information Booth either….call the person you are coming to visit & use the front door & intercom! They are there for a reason!
Whew!! I feel much better bacon!! Thank you so much 😉
05/07/2015 at 10:09 am
Awesome job my friend – off the chest and into karma air. Way to go – do you feel better? I so agree with your pet peeve 100%. People just assume so quickly that if you are outside then you are there to talk. Not the case at all! Well said! XOXO – Bacon
05/08/2015 at 9:26 pm
Thanks for letting me air that Bacon!!! I get so frustrated at people for just assuming I want them to stop & talk. Some even come right onto patio & plunk themselves down!! That REALLY stirs my blood…
Oh well such is Life. Thanks for listening.
(((hugs))) Sherri-Ellen 😉

Anytime my nefkitty. That’s what today was all about. Letting it go to circulate in karmaville. XOXO – Bacon
05/06/2015 at 8:01 pm
Now that is just rude!!
05/07/2015 at 10:12 am
Most definitely! That woman better be glad I wasn’t in Albert the Smart car when she did this to mommy. I would have snorted what I thought of her – XOXO – Bacon
05/07/2015 at 11:28 am
Oh Albert is a purrfect name for a little Smart car. One time I saw one with a license plate that said ‘Y U Laff’
05/07/2015 at 1:24 pm
Snorts – I love that! Albert is my buddy. He has a spot in the back just for me. I fit so perfectly! XOXO – Bacon

Where to begin? I like peeps that say “Hi” to me and move on. While I’m walking in the lane I don’t want you over with your outstretched paw trying to pet me…yuck! You are a peep and I don’t know where your paw has been….so get it away from me. Besides mom told me not to get cozy with strangers…sheesh!
05/07/2015 at 10:14 am
AMEN! Humans need to think before they come up to us. I hate that too! Don’t invade my space – let me come to YOU if I want to see YOU. Way to go my sweet friend. XOXO – Bacon
05/06/2015 at 9:53 pm
Mine are the morons who live in this apt complex and who think my garden is an ash tray to toss their cigarette butts in.
05/07/2015 at 10:15 am
AMEN! Some people have no respect for others. You want me to take care of them – you just call me and let me know. I can be your protect pig for your garden. XOXO – Bacon

MY (Sammy) pet peeve at the moment is that Wally keeps stealing MY new toy that I got for MY birthday yesterday!
Sammy (and Wally-the-thief)
05/07/2015 at 10:18 am
Shakes head. I know your pain my friend. Other than the stealing of your toy, I hope you had a wonderful barkday!! XOXO – Bacon
05/07/2015 at 4:12 am
I hope Mommy’s wave was the same one I give to drivers who cut me off… which is about four fingers short of a full wave….
05/07/2015 at 10:19 am
Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. Were you in Albert with her yesterday? I believe you would be correct! XOXO – Bacon

this is a pet peeve we understand well – especially around here. No one obeys the speed limits and everyone is racing to get where they are going and yet we always catch up with them at the traffic lights.
05/07/2015 at 10:21 am
AMEN! I’m not sure what the rush is out there on the streets. You usually meet up with that person at the next red light. Nothing in life is that big of a hurry to get into a car accident. XOXO – Bacon
05/07/2015 at 10:01 am
Technology..nuff said…urghhhh..oh and mean old people who push and shove because they think AGE is a reason to be respected..note to the elderly you earn respect..how do i know you weren’t an axe murderer huh! loves Fozziemum xx
05/07/2015 at 10:51 am
Amen my friend – AMEN! And let’s add old man Arthritis – he is such a booger bear! XOXO – Bacon
05/07/2015 at 10:54 am
Totally my friend 🙂 xxx Fozziemum

You will have the last laugh when you pay your petrol bill! Ha Ha and Ha!
05/08/2015 at 9:12 am
Snorts! Mom just got a fill up. It’s been about a month and a half and it cost $21.36 to fill up. HA! Dontcha just love that about Albert? XOXO – Bacon
05/08/2015 at 7:49 pm
The case rests! Ha Ha and Ha! Go Albert! 😀
