Kranky Me

 When I setup this blog, I had several names in mind all of which were not available.  I was stumped, then suddenly “Kranky Granny”  just popped into my head.  No idea why.  But I have to admit that it's rapidly becoming the truth. 

Lately, it seems that no matter what I do or where I go something has to disrupt my peace of mind, wear on my nerves, make me wish I could give someone a good tongue lashing or a nice wallop upside their head.  I am certainly becoming a cranky old lady.  

Here are just a few of the things that made me cranky this week:
  • Why is it that almost every TV program I  watch has the background music so loud that I have trouble hearing the dialog? 
  • Don’t they train cashiers anymore? I don’t like having my items tossed willy-nilly in the sacks. Cold items should be together, chemicals not mixed with food, bottles stood right-side up and not lying on their side, clothes should be somewhat folded, bags should be weight balanced and able to stand upright.  Is that asking too much?  
  • Why must my phone always stop ringing the moment I finally get it fished out of my pocket or purse? 
  • Twice a year the city mails out notices with the rules for our weekly trash collection.  Why do I have to live near the one person who refuses to obey those rules and blocks my mailbox, every single day, with his rubbish?
  • Am I the only person who never gets the right order when using the drive-thru at my favorite fast food restaurant?  
Then perhaps I have no reason to complain.  At least, I didn't have a porcupine fall off a lamp-post onto my head like this poor Brazilian woman leaving her with 272 quills in her scalp.

  1. You do sound like me. Sometimes (more often than not) every little thing gets on my last nerve. I am becoming more and more intolerant every day.
