Annoyances

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

My friend (in McDonalds): If Mcdonalds were healthy I would be SO skinny.

1. WHY? in this day and age are ALL cans NOT pop-top??? Tuna? Dogfood? EVERYTHING. EVERY.SINGLE.CAN should have a pop-top/pull-top. Is this a conspiracy with the can-opener industry? Are Tuna companies getting kick-backs for NOT having pop-tops?? Pineapple chunks have pop-tops. SO does soup! Seriously this gives me a headache.

2. It's SO FUN when your super expensive front loading washing machine BREAKS ONE MONTH after the warranty ends. And the shady "repair man" says it's gonna cost basically what you could pay for a brand new one. I HATE YOU FRIGIDAIRE.

3.When it rains for the first time in FOREVER and you're all out skipping about in utter joy, only to come home and see that your roof leaked and RUINed your brand new bedroom paint job.




4.Going to the Salon to get highlights because your hair is really just too damn dark from the last time, and what the hay? let's just go blonde!....sitting for the million hours with tin foil on your head, scalp on fire...only to come out with this...

Can you believe how BLONDE I am?! I mean, people are gonna think I'm so fake, with all that BLONDE hair. Hope people don't think I'm a dumb BLONDE now! That $125 for HIGHLIGHTS was so WORTH it!

5. Millions of people at Costco on a thursday mid-day? GET A JOB. Sheesh.

6. Powers that be at Costco? I wanna know what's in your air or paint scheme or aisle placement that makes a pretty regular person go in there for THREE ITEMS :paper towels, chocolate chips, and dog bones, and leave $145 poorer with a cart full of I don't even know...XXXL

7. WHY is there not a product for when you break a glass (or an entire glass blender...no matter) and tons of shards of it goes into your garbage disposal and it needs to get cleaned out? WHY? Is it really so difficult? Because HOW THE HELL DO I GET BROKEN GLASS OUT OF MY GARBAGE DISPOSAL?!?!?

8. Dude from my parent's party last weekend: I HATE YOUR "outfit." PS. NOT a role play party.



9. This commercial. And the fact that it is on every single break.


THINGS THAT DO NOT ANNOY ME:

1. My cute Halloween Display

Maybe you can go all Dooce on Frigidaire's arse, and Twitter about how horrible they are so they give you free crap.

Man, all that anyone is going to say when they see you is, "When did Peewee become one of those slutty Hef girlfriends?" SO blonde.

Carin said...

Kate is next to me...LOVING the commercial that annoys both you and me. I hit the "comment" window and asked Kate, "What should I say to Kristi?" "THANK YOU FOR THE VIDEO!" was her reply! She loved the commercial :) I guess we know who that was created for!

xo

p.s. Please come decorate my house for Halloween...I am the WORST Halloween decorator on the planet!

kyslp said...

Dang - Kristina P. beat me to the Dooce thing!

$125 to get that light, eh?? Maybe you should go back to Fantastic Sam's. Your roots are going to be pretty high maintenance.

peewee said...

Yah KP...I was gonna do a Twitter Boycott, and get my 43 followers to Bully Frigidaire. Hey....I wonder if that would actually work. DO you even twitter? I bet if you did they'd be BOM quotes. Or Elder Quotes. I bet.

Tell your parents that inviting Steven Segal to a party is so 1990.

2busy said...

Wow lots going bad this week. When it rains it pours. Oops that was bad...I'd ask for your $125 back. Where's the blonde?

NIKOL said...

Is it true that blondes have more fun?

I am SO WITH YOU about the garbage disposal thing. But if you get glass in there, the only way to get it out is to completely dismantle it. That's also the only way to get aquarium gravel out of it. I found out that last part the hard way.

Counselormama said...

I agree with the poptop thing and why are things that come in plastic not all ziplock? I am so sorry to see about your paint, that both sucks and blows at the same time!

CynthiaK said...

You know, I usually only have to arrive at your blog and I get a giggle (or at least a smile) out of your design. But man, I can always count on you to make me laugh. Belly laugh. So therapeutic. Thank you. It's like digital yoga or something. Nice work. :)

Hope you find a way to kick some Frigidaire a$$ and get yourself a new appliance. And you should probably give Michael Moore a call to look into that pop-top thingy. I'm sure he could at least get some coverage of it and anger those higher-ups.

forever folding laundry said...

Oooh, that is a major bummer about the leak. That bubbling paint job is NOT fun.

And I have always maintained that appliance companies (or, namely, SEARS) somehow programs their appliances to fail right after the warranty ends. It's a conspiracy, definitely.

Hang in there. Go have one of those suckers. You'll feel better. :)

Maryx said...

Love the highlights!! =D
You don't have much luck lately I see... take care! (Love the Halloween display!)

rychelle said...

so, while i was skipping in the rain at disneyland i saw your comment on facebook, and i have to admit i've never been more afraid of you. i'm sorry i didn't call, but we literally flew in and out on the same day.

but, a little birdie told me that hott blair and ron were planning to go to disneyland for thanksgiving.....

Kris said...

And here I was, feeling all annoyed that I had to WORK instead of being able to go to Costco mid-day on a Thursday.

Bummer on the rest.

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

There's a woman in my neighborhood who is a self proclaimed emergency preparedness guru and was sharing that if you have a lot of canned goods, be sure to have a non-electric can opener because she realized she didn't. And if SHE could make that mistake, then the rest of us must have too. Still makes me laugh.

My vote for your disposal is a shop vac. Can't they do everything? They work well for a house full of shredded paper and a flooded room all on the same night. Don't ask....

Your blondness is blinding. Now you need that same outfit as the guy at your parents party and you'll be set.

And VERY CUTE Halloween display. Totally makes up for all that other stuff.

peewee said...

I don't fell sorry for you Kris! I have to work sat AM...at 9!!!! So there!

Wenbren Explains It All said...

oh no where's the blond part? Any ways I love your Halloween display I need to work on mine, I just got a haircut too, and I wanted to try a new hairstylist, big mistake it doesn't even look like I got a haircut and it took her one whole hr to cut it, ugh I hated her, never going back to Regis on my side of town NEVER!

J said...

whore, you crack me up! love the new blond 'do. very becoming :)

Jillybean said...

All cans are not pop top because some people have three year olds who go through the pantry and pop all the tops then close the door and you don't know about this until the pantry starts smelling funny.

Maybe when you buy your new washer, you can get a good deal on a new garbage disposal.

Cold Stone's ice cream cakes are way better than Baskin Robbins.

Chaka said...

That was one of the best posts I have read in a while! Sorry about the paint job and all the negative stuff, but at least you made me laugh. Especialy with the blond highlights. Was that straight hydrogen peroxide they put in your hair?

CynthiaK said...

By the way, just gave you a little award! Check it out:

Yaya said...

Good point about the pop tops. We need a petition for that.

bernthis said...

Dropped the Costco membership for exactly that reason. Been there with the blonde highlights, you look almost Danish.

Eve said...

1. Yes on pop tops - No on can openers
2. I thought I was going to fix your washing machine?
3. YOUR ROOF IS FALLING DOWN!!!!
4. YOUR STYLIST IS AN IMPOSTER!!!!
5. "This economy" is causing too much traffic at Costco...
6. There's a subliminal recording that can only be heard by dogs. Spend over $100... Spend over $100
7. Disposal companies are on cahoots with ER rooms...
8. Dude...Wow.
9. I love ice cream.
You are soooo Martha Stewart!
