"What irritates you Monday" is a semi regular meme brought to us by Delores of
The Feathered Nest.
It gives us a chance, on Mondays, to rant about little, or big, things that irritate us.
Today my irritation is Traffic.
Not traffic in general, I'm fine with that. After all, we all need to get from A to B at some time.
The traffic that irritates me is the sort that starts up in my oh-so-quiet street as soon as I turn on the TV for a program I particularly want to watch.
Time of day or night is irrelevant here.
From nowhere, cars start revving up and travelling up or down my street.
Even into the driveway that winds through the flats.
I can turn the TV up louder or shut the door, but I can still hear them.
(because now I know they're there, I've heard them)
Here's the funny part...I can have the door open and the TV on with just any old show just for background noise and there won't be a single car.
If I've been waiting for the midday movie because it looked really interesting in the previews, there will not be one single sound from the street, until the movie begins.
If the movie is a bit late starting, so is the traffic.
Same thing with DVDs.
Not a sound until I press the "play" button.
It's a conspiracy, I tell you, a conspiracy.
"They" would rather have me washing dishes or making the bed.
Little do they know, I've already done those things....mwah-ha-ha!
