10 Things I Hate....

...that everybody else loves.

I found this blog on LRC this morning, and thought it would be fun to start a thread where we can all chime in on the 10 things that we hate (that everybody else loves)...

http://takimag.com/article/10_things_i_h...

I will go first.

1. Television. I doubt that I watch 6 hours of TV per year. The last show that I can recall as being "can't miss" for me was "Northern Exposure" back in the early 90's.

2. Horses. Don't get me wrong, horses have their uses: McDonald's hamburgers, glue, Jell-O for example. Horses hate me as much as I hate them, so there is no love lost.

3. Summer. Too hot, too humid, too expensive, too long, too busy, too dry.

4. Hunting. I have zero issues with anybody else hunting, and I appreciate hunters keeping the critter population down. I simply have better things to do with my time than waking up at 04:00 am on a Saturday morning, and shivering in the woods all morning. Better things like sleeping in.

5. Cigars. I share George Carlin's opinion of cigars.

6. Twitter. I can't say what I have to say in 140 characters.

7. Cake. I'm sure that I have had two or three good pieces of cake in my life, but I can't remember when. I don't even try to eat the stuff anymore. Wedding cake is especially horrible. They could cover particle board with a 1.5" layer of sugary, nasty icing, perch the cheap plastic bride and groom on the top, and no one would know the difference. That may be how they do it, and would explain things.

8. mp3's. The only time I ever listened to music on headphones when I was younger was to prevent my folks from hearing what I was listening to. Now everyone listens to their music through earbuds. IMHO it is because the sound quality of the mp3 format sucks.

9. Flip flops / sandals. Feet are gross, and should be covered up at all times when in public.

10. The Beach. Weird stuff washed up on shore, ugly people wearing too few clothes, sand, sunburn, and what is that smell?

    Funny!

    Here's my list:

    1) Mashed potatoes - I know it's unAmerican but I have never liked them.

    2) Meetings - too long, too little done and too busy to mess with them.

    3) Summer - I'm with you on that - too hot, too dry and just plain miserable.

    4) Sweaters - too restricting.

    5) Mayonnaise - even nastier than mashed potatoes.

    6) Disrespectful people - not on speak out - just anyone who looks down on anyone at any time. It's the one thing that gets me upset. If you think your better or smarter than a farmer or mechanic then try putting a transmission in - you're not better or smarter than anyone else.

    7) People who don't use turn signals so you wait at the stop sign and at the last second they turn down your street.

    8) Liars - some people like them, I don't.

    9) Sun glasses - can't see a thing out of them - I always try and avoid using them.

    10) BO - body order??? :-)

  • Not everyone loves what I dislike.

    Rap music, most sports, reality people relationship TV, disfunctional family sit-coms, department stores with convoluded pricing to make you think it's a deal, today's bright headlamps on high beam pointed my direction, people that insist on explaining something I already know, people that worship people, Small agressive ugly dogs and people that expect to find it normal for them to lip kiss their little ugly dogs and the list goes on. :)

    BC,

    Did your Dad own any mules? Now there is an animal you could love to hate. I didn't go there cause Lumpy already beat me to it.

  • Wheels, that reminds me, Did you get my Christmas letter about my medical condition causing me to need a little help in getting the patent on the new yogart machine? I was wanting to diversify my light beer investments but I was short on cash to push congress to pass the new regulations I needed to make it a go.

    Old John,

    If you just worked at it a little, I bet you could be a real pain in the arse.

    ;-)

    I am so out of gas I can hardly function this afternoon. Otherwise I am sure I would work on something to fire back.

    I sent my brother a picture of what a real SOB is, because it fit some of his modus operandi to a tee. He posted it on his wall.

    BC,

    I was a little older, maybe 10 or 12 when I got to try plowing behind a team of mules. To begin with it wasn't pretty, but there were three teams of mules and plows, and there was my Uncle, my Dad and me. I don't know how many acres was in that field but we plowed for 3 or 4 days, seemed like months.

    Mules are smarter and also meaner. One of them hated me as bad as I did her. I was supposed to go out in the pasture, put a bridle on that bag of bones and bring her in, her partner would follow. She would wait until I would get up to her head then wheel around and try to kick my head off. This would go on until she finally got tired of the game and let me catch her.

    Old John,

    If my ancestors were using a five fingered discount to get their tulips, rest assured they were not pink tulips. :-)

  • Just got home from the dog giving me my morning 3 mile walk. Time to ponder my thoughts on this hate list. For every yin there is a yang. Since the 10 Things Rule has been breached I proceed with a few more than asked for and less than I probably will think of later. In no particular order:

    Love: Just a couple of Sit Coms

    Hate: Constipation

    Love: Well,you all know!

    Hate: Over-educated holier than thou know it alls but can't grasp "righty tighty,lefty loosey"

    Love: Forrest Gump

    Hate: TV preachers

    Love: When they get caught with their pants down

    Hate: SEMO Fair

    Love: To see it moved out of the middle of town

    Hate: Blood lust "hunters".For the thrill of the kill,not for the food.

    Love: The strike on a topwater lure. A .22 shot through the eye of a squirrel and the pan-fried trout on a campfire or the squirrel w/dumplings

    Love: NCAA Final Four

    Hate: Las Vegas

    Love: Confluence of Camus Creek and the Middle Fork of the Salmon River

    Hate: When my wife goes ga-ga over some famous guy with a full head of hair

    Love: When she kisses my bald pate and says she loves only me

    Hate: The fact I seem to hate so many things

    Love: The fact I'm gonna stop now and did not even mention politics
