9 Things I Don't Have Time For

1) Commercials when I want to eat.  
If I am enjoying a prepared meal as I lounge on the couch, it means that I'm ready to eat that meal now. I will put on something I kinda hate before I choose to sit through five minutes of commercials before getting to something real good. Commercials = waiting to eat. Veto.

2) Troll accounts. 
I don't talk anonymous smack to anyone online and haven't done so since I was in 9th grade and it was a sleepover ritual. The only time I'm kinda opinionated to others is on Twitter but at least I own my opinions with my real, true identity. If I can't cop to it as myself, I don't feel it belongs online (just be a nice person for goodness sake!). I'm all for people being brave in their discourse but for the love of all that is good, if you do so with a profile picture of a cartoon animal on an account that was opened 2 days ago: Buh, bye. 

3) Gluten-Free anything. 
Don't want it. Don't need it. Pass the bread.

4) Filling ice cube trays. 
Give me an ice dispenser or give me death! This is largely due to the fact that I'm too uncoordinated to not spill H2O all over the floor as I transfer the tray from the sink to the freezer.
5) Organized tours. 
Tour guides are generally really likable and fun so I'm not hating the player, just the game. The game of traveling with a large group of people and waiting around. Count me out. 

6) Phone calls. 
They scare me.

7) Online "Boutiques" run by the grammatically-impaired. 
I think you mean that you just ordered a bunch of cheap crap from China to turn a profit? Boutiques are generally known for being a little more high-end. The term isn't meant to describe an array of copy-cat, polyester blends that have the added bonus of a shipping charge. These have popped-up everrrrywhereeee lately and McKayla is not impressed!

8) Cheap hair ties. 
The slow, painful death of working out after you just heard a SNAP and feel all your disgusting hair making its way to your shoulders. Why do bad things happen to good people!?

9) Updating my apps. 
I just want to use this now. 


What do you not have time for?

Ugg, that gluten free crap is worse for you than gluten, so ignore it indeed. I have no time for a lot of things lol hmm I may have to make a post about it too. Whiners, poor pitiful me types, animal haters, commercials at all, people who all they can talk about every moment of every day is just one thing, i.e. their kids, the weather, food, etc. Good to love/like something but shut the heck up about for a little while please lol

#7 all the way! A boutique means it's higher end not crap from China that you've marked up 150%.

Robin said...

Can I borrow this post idea (will credit you)? I am sick of hearing about gluten-free stuff. I understand that some people really have Celiac's disease, but otherwise, it seems like a trend. Ten years ago, you almost never heard about gluten-free stuff!

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

If you don't have celiac's disease and you are all NO GLUTEN, I don't understand you. I saw some stupid mascara advertised the other day as gluten-free. REALLY?

I hate having to make ice.

Madilyn Quinn said...

The gluten-free thing annoys me. Unless the have celiac's disease it's totally unnecessary. It really cracks me up when they label things that are naturally gluten free - like fruit and cereal - gluten-free and those folks eat it all up like it's new or something.
I feel ya on the cheap hair ties and phone calls :(((

@Robin- of course, Robin. You don't need to credit me- not that far-out of an idea to write about! :)

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Pat- lol, yes Pat. Animal Haters especially! Who hates animals!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Rose - exactly. Just name your business accordingly!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@SMD- on mascara?!?!? Oh lawdy-lawd!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Madilyn- totally agree on all counts.

Melissa Dawn said...

This is fantastic. I am totally with you on all of them especially the gluten free craze and the hair ties. Oh man. I wear a ponytail everywhere for work and the last thing I want is for it to snap inside my hairnet. My hair is down to my waist. When itbfalls, it's hard to hide. If I may be allowed to do so, I'd love to do this on my blog as well.

hahah I love this. I could never go gluten free, I am way too obsessed with bread and pasta and basically every other gluten filled thing. and omg dumb trolls. hate em. it's so crazy to me that people even take the time to be jerks to someone else. just seems so pointless!!

Slamdunk said...

So true. Your list hit several that are my huge pains for me as well: tech updates, phone calls, anonymous web critics, etc.

One that annoys me when I blog is that my wireless mouse and keyboard batteries are always dying. We use the rechargeable as they are better for the environment, but wow they always need replacing at the wrong time. As I typed this comment, I am realizing that may be I am the only person who takes the time to replace the batteries--while the rest of the family just ignores the flashing message.

Kate at Green Fashionista said...

Love this! And pass the bread on to me too ;-)

Jax said...

Lol!! I agree with all of these except the organized tours. I loveeee ghost tours. Hahahaha

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Melissa- wow! with waist long hair that would be double the struggle. But then again, I love waist long hair so I'm jealous.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Slamdunk- oh gosh, weak batteries are definitely something no one has time for! So frustrating.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@kate- ha- nom, nom, nom.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

@Jax- ooo, I haven't done one but that does actually sound cool.

Kara said...

Lol at the ice tray!! When we moved into our current rental, I was OVERJOYED to see that the fridge had an icemaker and a water dispenser. I was so tired of ice trays and Brita filters!!!! Never again!

Kati Rose @ Constantly Seeking Wonder said...

GIVE ME ALL THE GLUTEN! I want my bread and pasta and bakery thank you very much. Plus, now it's gotten to be such a trend that it's so ridiculous. I had a woman ask if our tea had gluten. I had to bite my tongue so hard to not ask if she even knew what gluten was.

Melissa Dawn said...

Oh don't be. I mean, I love it. I think I look better with it long. But half the time I want to cut it because it's so damn hot and the other half I want to tear it out because it refuses to curl or behave in anyway. I have a very strong love/hate relationship with my hair.
