Things that bother me

Things bother me at times, but I just let it go, but some things just keep coming up. I got the list idea from ysmarko, which he got from someone else. Well without any further delay....

TV commercials and advertisements
They annoy us all in some way, but I am focused on the ones that are not around or in this state. These are stores and restaurants that are not within 200 mile radius of where I live. I see them on local channels and cable channels. I would understand if I see something about a place in Chicago on WGN, but when it's also on local stations as well. Here is a list of ones I commonly see: CiCi's Pizza, Ruby Tuesday's, Golden Corral, and Tractor Supply company (a redneck's dream store). I know there are others but it just annoys me that they advertise and those places are not even close to here. Sonic was the most popular one, but they finally opened up one near me in Santee. So I can take them off the list and I am less annoyed.

People who don't wash their hands after using the bathroom
I don't need to go any further on this one.

I know many people that this bothers them. But many people don't realize they do it. It's either never using their blinker and almost causing accidents or leaving their blinker on for a very long period. I once drove along a lady for about 70 miles until she finally turned her blinker off. She had to finally change lanes. But then there are those who cut in and out of traffic with no regard to using their turn signal. The one that annoys me the most is the time of turning. They pause but you don't know what for or which way they are going or they turn it on the whole time they are in an obvious turning lane. It like they think - hmm I'm in a left hand turning lane and waiting for the light to turn green, maybe I should turn in my left signal so people know for sure I am turning left.

Oxymoron Christians Oxymoron Christians break my heart more than they bug me. I could have used hypocritical, but everyone is, no matter what they believe.
Why is it people claim to be Christians for years and years, then years later live like they never knew Him. Or they are Christ-like in public life, but online or away from anything related to being Christian they are a whole different person. Why can't they just be real, surrender it all, not parts. This goes along with ysmarko's about Christians giving other Christians a bad rap.

I get it online like we all do and I get it in my mail box at home. Every hour or so I check my e-mail and I have to delete my bulk mail box, and at times my inbox get some. Just because I am a Christian, I don't want an e-mail about what I should boycott or would make my mega church better. I go to an average size church. Other than the occasional sicko bulk mail, I don't care what this Acai drink does for me or how much I can make for google even though google won't pay me.
My youngest daughter loves getting the mail. Most of the time it's bills and adds from every store. I throw most junk mail away, what a waste of paper. I can't opt out either. I don't think it will ever end.

Professional athletes
Why oh why can't those who have this gift and talent stay out of trouble? Why oh why do they let themselves go? It's not just famous star athletes but anyone who gets paid to play a sport. I despise it when I hear of an athlete get in some sort of trouble with the law and ruin their careers (Vick). Or they get away with a crime, when an average joe or jan would go straight to jail (Lewis). Another is, they get paid a ton, and they get out of shape and don't try yo improve their game. Examples: Tony Gwynn, he is in the Hall of Fame but, he did put on some weight and his knees took the toll. Shaq, A sure HOFer but his free throws, awful, had a ton of time to improve it, he is also out of shape and put on weight. Others are the same. Have you seen the guts on some veterans or some guys who are awesome that could do better if they got into better shape. They have the money for someone to kick their butts to get them in prime shape.

There is more but I must digress.
