The Schwan's Company delivery dude, who, after he fills a neighbor across the street's order every few months, pesters everybody else on the street.  The following exchange always ensues:

"Hi, I just made a Schwan delivery to your friends, but I have a lot of products still on the truck that I can sell you for--"

"We're not interested, thank you anyway."

"What, you don't like food?"

"I like food, but I like being able to select it myself at the local Publix, plus being able to take advantage of sales on all manner of other groceries and redeem manufacturers' coupons."

He attempts to blather on, and I slam the front door shut.

(I do enjoy that last part.)

keeping appointments--which is probably why I don't make them (except for the annual medical checkeroo with my all-purpose physician)

The atrociously sloppy way women appear in public.  Raggies and baggies, tears and tatters, tattoos all over their bodies, bra straps showing (the better to show off the tattoos, I suppose).  It must take an actual effort to look that horrid on purpose.

Men seem to do a lot better with their T-shirts, and jeans or shorts.  I suppose we expect tattoos on guys. blankstare

The way people dress when they appear in public.

I don't expect anyone to get ready for a prom date just to buy groceries, but I also don't expect to see anyone's underwear, fat, or flab squishing out from their purposely tattered garments.  Whatever happened to personal pride?

Acorns from the huge old live-oak tree falling onto the driveway, which should begin pretty soon.  No matter how many times Eddie blows them off to the lawn on either side, a few more fall before we go anywhere.  We don't mind the crunch and crackle, but we mind the staining on the concrete a lot.

when the grocery  stores are packed. It doesn't matter where we go the stores are always packed. I hardly ever go now after listening to the PA system music,  bright lights turning, automated voices,  bells and whistles at the checkout and people not just talking but yelling into their cell phones. That was Walmart and never again. Metro is not much better either.

That's why I've confined my grocery shopping to Publix, only a mile and a half from the house, the past couple decades.

When I was younger and stronger and dumber, I hit Walmart probably once a week.  Much longer walk from the parking lot to the entrance than at Publix, plus, while the products are excellent, it's an effort to locate anyone to help me find them, and heaven forfend, load them into my car.  I leave Walmarting to Eddie, there's no telling what surprises he'll buy to impress me.  Grocery-wise, mind you.

People in front of me making left hand turns and it takes forever and I can't get round the right of them.

I guess most of Florida caught onto that aggravation some time ago.  At most intersections with traffic lights, there are 3 lanes, even from single lane roads.  Left lane is for left turns only--first to turn green, first to turn back to red.  Middle lane is for straight crossing, right lane for right turns.  Plus, unless signs advise otherwise, we can still turn right on a red light after a complete stop and making sure there's no traffic close enough to hit us in our behinds.

Things I don't like--politicians. blankstare
