The Moaning Meme

I've been tagged!
Oooh a meme! I've been tagged by Captain Poopy/Christie with a meme originating from The Freelance Cynic and this one's about my groanings. Affectionately called:

The Moaning Meme

4 things that should go into room 101 and be removed from the face of the earth.

-Confetti that people put in birthday cards that then is scattered around my house.
-Packing peanuts- not for environmental reasons but for the same reasons as above.
-Big Brother – it is like a national obsession here. How many hours a day do we need to watch people sleep and use the toilet?
-Runescape!!! My husband is addicted and it needs to stop.

3 things people do that make you want to shake them violently.

-Overtaking(passing) me on that blind curve on the way to dh’s work.
-Saying they “hate” kids and won’t teach a Sunday school(primary) class for me.
-Ignoring their children who are coloring on the carpet because they are too deeply involved with having a conversation to notice the destruction their child is causing.

2 things you find yourself moaning about.
-The rain – it has seriously rained here everyday for WAY too many days and we never even see rainbows this year.
-The kid across the street who CALLS instead of just coming over and knocking on the door. If the voicemail picks up he breaths heavy as if I don’t have caller ID.

1 thing the above answers tell you about yourself.
-I apparently would like people to parent their children better.

RULES:
Link to the original meme at freelancecynic.com so people know what it's all about!
Be as honest as possible, This is about letting people get to know the real you!
Try not to insult anyone - unless they really deserve it or are very, very ugly!
Post these rules at the end of every meme!

Today I'm tagging:
Moving Mama
Inga
Are We There Yet
And anyone else who would like to play! (Amazed - not sure if you do meme's or if a moaning one would fit with your blog so I won't force tag ya. lol)

Have fun!

Totally agree with Big Brother. I've managed to avoid it so far this year.

And I'll have you know that in Bristol today there was a rainbow.

I have escaped the Big Brother craze, I've never watched an episode.

Thanks for the tag, I'll be thinking on some answers...The big one is how HOT it is here.

I need to get on this - I have SO much to moan about :) I love the comment about carpet coloring - yes, we've all been there. Excuse me, don't you notice your child is tearing about this room while you chatty-chat with your friends, mommy?

I think mine would be summed up the same: "I apparently would like people to parent their children better" also.
