Holiday Pet Peeves!

1.  Yes, it is cold outside.  Yes, it is very windy.  No, I don't really want to park a long ways away from the entrance to the store and hoof it, either.  But you know what, buddy?  Ball up and park in a parking space.  The curb in front of the store is not a parking space.  I don't care if you're just getting a coffee really quick, or if you're just grabbing a gallon of milk, or what.  Park your car.  There were FIVE cars doing this when I drove up to Target today; four were SUVs.  I'm just saying.

2.  Remember when I said it was cold and windy outside?  You sir, with your three-month-old baby, are an idiot.  You are worse than an idiot, you may actually be a neglectful parent.  Why are you taking an infant outside when the infant has NONE of the following: a coat, a hat, a blanket covering his/her face.  That baby was in the carrier just wearing a shirt and pants.  That was it.  Maybe you're a "real man" and don't need anything other than a jacket, but when it's this cold out, you either make sure your child is adequately covered or you don't bring the child out.  No excuses.

3.  When I buy something a month in advance for a holiday craft project but now I can't find it so I get to go up to Walmart during the two-week pre-Christmas danger zone.  FFFFUUUU.

4. Just because you are buying Christmas presents does not mean you are allowed to ram my cart out of the way while I'm still putting my change away.  What is wrong with you.
