Perpetually Peeved

Rainy Days and Tuesdays Always Get Me Peeved

It’s raining here.  It has been all day.

It’s Tuesday, too.  It has been all day.  Tuesdays are like the 20th birthday of the workweek.  Not quite humpday – so what’s the point?

Rain means that everyone drives like a douchebag hopped up on coffee and diet pills.  Guess what?  Everyone is going to be late.  Now stop honking, stop trying to cut me off and, for the love of puppies, stop riding your brakes.

We don’t need to revisit my umbrella issues, do we?  Umbrellas are to me what picture books are to Stevie Wonder.  Absolutely useless.  Smalls’ daycare doesn’t have covered parking.  What’s worse than driving home in rainy rush hour traffic?  Driving home in rainy rush hour traffic with wet pants slapping around on your ankles, a full bladder and a lightening strike that sends all the traffic lights in a 5 mile radius out of commission.  Oh, and a four-year-old singing Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at the top of her lungs.  Over, and over, and over again.

Remember that great scene with Kathy Bates’ character in Fried Green Tomatoes?  You know the one where she just guns it into the snotty girl’s car?  Hmm, if only.

This is me today. (photo from some random site that just happened to have a pic of grumpy bear -

Someday your gonna snap like Kathy Bates and I’m gonna remember back to this post and remark… “I saw this coming a mile away”…. 🙂 I hope you are having a better day now and that your daughter has at least changed to a different Christmas song…. Hang in there! 🙂

She has a whole arsenal. The problem is when she gets stuck on the same verse – it’s like a record that you can’t stop from skipping. I’m about to have some chocolate. That should help.

OMG! Just found your blog. Can’t wait to read more. You’re hilarious.

Idiot drivers + rain + Tuesday = PISSED OFF. The best part about Tuesday is it’s almost Wednesday. Coincidently the best part about Wednesday is that it’s almost Thursday. And well, the best part about Thursday (besides Thirsty Thursday) is that it’s almost Friday.

Well… it’s downhill from here… or is it?

Poor lady, trying to get out of car in rain, holding umbrella, trying to unfold walker, hold keys, hold purse and stay balanced in wind and rising water level. When is the congress going to address the issues of little people in America? They have no idea.

Teach it to her in sign language…it’s easy- rudolph is the R sign, nose- grab your nose, and reindeer is reindeer antlers on your head. Tell her deaf people can’t hear her, but they can see her! (good luck with that!)

I hate rain too. it rains so rarely here in CA that we are automatically on “STORM WATCH” when it drizzles or someone sprays their windshield wipers too much!

I have missed you Peeved! This was a great post. “For the love of puppies” “Umbrellas are like picture books to Stevie Wonder”! That stuff is priceless fodder quotes, the Pie Hole may repeat, of course with props heading your direction!

Wet pants around your ankles…auugh hate that. I’d rather take the ligtning hit.

Comment by omawarisan

I hate rainy days because I, too, am not a fan of umbrellas. Or wet pants.

However, I do love me some Grumpy Bear.

Isn’t he just the cutest?

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

Oh, I’m with you. It’s snowing here today–not even snowing, it’s flurrying–and people are driving like the four horsemen are at their backs. Come on people. Put on your big boy driving skills and pull yourselves together.

Me thinks Smalls needs to learn these 2 ditties;

Comment by gallowaygrave

Aw, I love that song!

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

which one, there are 2 in the clip?

Comment by gallowaygrave

Our youngest sings “Jingle Bells (Batman Smells)” at the top of his lungs, only he doesn’t know the words and doesn’t believe me when I tell him “Robin lady egg” doesn’t even make sense. He doesn’t sing “Rudolph” but asks us to sing it, so he can scream “like a light bulb!” — after every single line. He does it with such gusto tho that it becomes cute after a while.

Comment by Todd Pack

I love when the insist on lyrics that make absolutely no sense. Biggie use to sing, “It’s a grand ole flag, it’s a high-fiving flag!”

I hate rainy days because it inevitably turns my hair something straight out of an 80’s porno.
Not great for the self esteem.
Hope your day got better.

Comment by wanderingmenace

It turns my hair into something straight out of a Weird Al Yankovic video. I’d so much rather look like a porn star than Al.

Comment by perpetuallypeeved

I LOVE the rain! Ohh ya, especially when I’m walking near the street and cars splash germy street water on me! Brings back such GOOD memories of when I walked to school for a year, and it rained all the time! Ughh!

Comment by Melissa Picard

Hate the rain, too. But amazingly it turned into snow where I am. So you decide, which is worse? Rain or snow? Because people REALLY don’t know how to drive in the snow. Just sayin’!

Comment by Renée A. Schuls-Jacobson

This is so funny. Tuesdays really are like 20th birthdays.

and I’m with you on umbrellas. They’re really only good for hitting people and breaking windows. Not that’s I’d know.
