Weekly Annoyances.....

I'm back with another installment of your favorite blog post!!! This week, as promised I'll touch on this plaid shorts phenomenon among the younger crowd and a few other annoyances. Here we go.........

Weekly Annoyance #1

This first annoyance is one I'm sure doesn't just annoy me and that is people who "think" they know it all. For anyone that knows me, I have an endless supply of meaningful and meaningless knowledge but I never claim to know everything, just mostly everything!! (that's a joke) These are not the people I am referring to. I am referring to the people that will ask a question, clearly not knowing the answer, and then when you tell them your answer they simply quip,"no that's not it"!!! Seriously, you have no clue but you're quick to shoot my answer down. These same people that claim to be experts in something from what they read and clearly do not know as much about it as those who experience it. You know the type, people who are "experts"on healthcare but are 300 pounds and not doctors. People who are "experts" on education but were "C" students and are not teachers. People who just think they know everything but write emails using "your" for "you are" and "there" for "they are", c'mon "your" killing me!!! Unless you're (see the correct way to use it) a doctor or a medical professor, do not act like you're (again) an expert in the medical field. Unless you're a teacher or an education professor, do not act like an expert in the education field. So think long and hard the next time you're acting like a know it all about something that in fact you know very little about. There may actually be someone who is an expert in that area and they might just tell you to..... Knock that shit off!!!!!!

The next annoyance also involves so called "experts" in the political field. It boggles my mind how emotionally attached some people get to politicians and what they say. When will people wake up and realize that all politicians LIE. Americans are upset with Obama and his healthcare bill. Well if you wouldn't be fat and maybe do some pushups, you wouldn't have to be concerned with your health on a daily basis. Also, do you think McCain would have been any different??? He would have tried to pass a bill that pissed most Americans off too. For any of you political "experts" reading this I challenge you to throw your hat in the ring and run for president. What? You have no experience in politics? Then how are you an expert? That's right you're not!!!!! Stop acting like you know what will fix this country and it's economy. If there was a quick fix solution as most "experts" feel there is, it would have been done already. These "experts" say, "our president did this wrong, or he didn't do this right" guess what.... He is the president not you, so if you want to do something to change that, win the election. If you've noticed there is a running theme in mist of my posts and that is if you want to change something, don't cry about and do something to change it. Don't complain about how someone else is handling issues because if Americans felt that you could do a better job you'd be in office!!! I'm not saying I agree with everything Obama has done or said, but has there been a recent president that has had a 100% approval rating??? No! I'm sure there are things you do that people do not approve but does that mean you're a bad person?? No! The point I'm trying to make here is, before you criticize how the president does things or any politician does their job, think about if you could do it. It's one thing to sit on the outside and say "I'd do this or I'd do that" but unless you know what you're doing and have the courage to run for office, shut up. So the next time you criticize anyone in politics or any other job and aren't willing to put your money where your mouth is, maybe, just maybe, there will be someone there to tell you to..... Knock that shit off!!!!!!

Weekly Annoyance #3

Ok, it's time to finally address this whole plaid shorts phenomenon. When did it become cool to wear these?? Did I not get the memo?? Was there not a cover letter on my TPS report?? I don't understand what is so great about plaid shorts. I'm not knocking anyone who wears them, what you do in your personal life is not for me to judge, I just want to remind you that they do make other kinds of shorts. I remember when plaid shorts were strictly worn by 70 year old men and older but now they are worn by teenagers?? I am simply asking for an explanation.
I didn't forget about you, mr. "I wear socks with sandals". Seriously?? The whole point of sandals is to not wear socks or shoes. You defy that point and still go through the effort of putting socks on and can't muster up enough energy to put on the shoes so you slip your sock covered feet into sandals?
Wikipedia defines sandals as the following;
Sandals are an open type of outdoor footwear, consisting of a sole held to the wearer's foot by straps passing over the instep and, sometimes, around the ankle. While the distinction between sandals and other types of footwear can sometimes be blurry (as in the case of huaraches—the woven leather footwear seen in Mexico), the common understanding is that a sandal leaves most of the upper part of the foot exposed, particularly the toes. People may choose to wear sandals for several reasons, among them economy (sandals tend to require less material than shoes and are usually easier to construct), comfort in warm weather, and as a fashion choice.
Nowhere in that definition does it say that socks should be worn. This defeats the purpose of wearing the sandals!!!!!!!
So the next time you're wearing plaid shorts and you're not 70, or you're wearing sandals with socks, or in the rare case of wearing plaid shorts with sandals and socks, somebody should tell you to..... Knock that shit off!!!!!

This is Kyle Montgomery, and this has been my two cents!!!!

  1. This was funny, I almost laughed myself out of my plaid shorts and sandals, all I would have been wearing were my socks. lol. Actually I just bought a pair of plaid shorts two months ago. I was going to spend a weekend in San Diego and I thought they would work for the weekend. (I actually never wear socks with sandals.)
