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.

Hee, me too. Of course, back in the day when I saved it, it never occurred to me to save it with the maker's name to be able to credit him/her.

I'm trying to think of a holiday icon for a scifiland challenge; it is surprisingly hard.

What show/fandom/whatever are you thinking of doing?
Shannon: xmas edward knowskungfuwaynewho on December 12th, 2010 04:04 am (UTC)
LOL, a show I have caps for. So basically BSG, Babylon 5, or Fringe.

Like, I want to make something as epically awesome as this icon right here, but anytime you try to MAKE yourself be funny, it just doesn't happen.

Yeah, he was like, running up to the door and all, so I think he knew it was cold out and that he needed to get the baby inside, but for Christ's sake, why would you even leave the house with the baby without a coat or a blanket? What if the car had broken down, or it had been icy and they'd gone off the road, or they had a flat tire?

People are idiots.

I try very hard to avoid stores on the holidays for precisely this reason. Internet shopping is my friend.

Every year, I am too dumb to get online and buy shit in time for it to actually get to my house before Christmas. I need to just set up a new system wherein I buy everything before Thanksgiving, and then I don't have to worry about it.

I have the hardest fricking people to buy for, though.
