Everyone has a signature phrase. Catch phrase. Whatever you want to call it. A phrase that everyone else hears them use often or a phrase that relates back to that individual. Gossip girl ends every narration with "You know you love me. XOXO. Gossip Girl." We all remember Mr. T's infamous phrase "I pity the foo!" Mrs. Cullen has a million of these. "Hay gurl hay", "Holla", "Gurl, shoot" and "That's what she said", are just a couple of her infamous catch phrases. Simply me ends every email and conversation with Kthanksbye. Artistic Logic often refers to her closest friends as "Loserface" . Falling Up gets "Ugh"-ed out by almost everything. And Controlled Chaos thinks everyone in the world is a baka .
So what is my my catch phrase, you ask? So annoying. I say it so much that everyone else has begun to say it as well. I end every sentence, paragraph, story, letter, email, and conversation with either you, it, he, she, that, they, anyone, and everyone is so annoying.
It started off as something I would say to my siblings about something that they did or said that would be *suprise, suprise*...annoying. And I would shout at them "You're sooooooooooooo annoying". Emphais on the word "so" .Now it's just second nature for me to say it all the time. How are you today. So annoying (annoyed). The weather today is very nice. So annoying. Can you do me a favor and pass me the ketchup? Ughhh, you're so annoying.
I don't really get annoyed easily. At least I don't think I do. Family and friends will probably beg to differ. But who cares, they're so annoying and you shouldn't listen to them. However there are quite a few things that annoy me that I would like to share with ya'll.(Everyone else has a rant session on this blog, why can't I?) :
The only people that comment on this blog are the writers of this blog, being compared to others, boys, snoring sleepers, not being able to do my "own thing", neck pains, people who ogle at you, long lines, parking my car, having people watch me park the car, merging into the freeway, unappreciativeness, people who say "Mozlem" or "Izlam" even after you've corrected them, living such a sheltered life,tomatoes, call centers, bad habits that die hard,rude people, the new facebook, procrastination, dogs barking, being misunderstood by family and friends, asking for help, writers block, teachers who are overly excited to be teaching and don't think there is a single thing that could possibly go wrong in their classroom, ignorance, really boring commercials that seem to last for a million years, jealousy,semi trucks
People who critique every single thing that you do in a negative way, people who try to change other people's personality or appearance to fit with the social "norm", change-- of any kind, my siblings, girls who refer to a guy as "the one", being woken up from the best sleep ever, a family member touching my feet in the hopes of reviving me from my sleep, traffic jams, liars, cheaters, stealers, conversations about marriage,rap songs,toothpaste overflowing from the tube, negative feedback, rising costs of textbooks, washing clothes, cleaning my closet, dust bunnies, relying on unreliable people, cleaning the bathroom, taking the trash out, hearing anyone say "I told you so",vegetables, pot holes, snow, being called lazy, shopping during the holiday season, snobs, short weekends, uninvited guests, being told over and over to learn "how to cook", losing things, allergies.
Printers getting jammed, my hijab getting stuck in printers, being asked a question that I can't answer, birds chirping (ok that probably makes me sound like a horrible person, but if you are in a deep and much needed sleep mode, you truly do not want a bunch of birds to ruin that for you with their incessant chirping.), my niece and nephew spending the night and crying non stop, people asking me a million times "When are you getting married?", people asking me a million times, "When are you graduating?", professors who can't teach, getting paid bi-weekly instead of weekly, serving guests tea, news, the media, racist bigots, showoffs,hot and humid weather, people freaking me out/stressing me out about student teaching, brushing my hair (sad, but true), not knowing what to wear in the morning, shoes that hurt like no other, being on my feet all day long, Monday mornings, Blogs of Note: some people just don't deserve to be on there.
Uhhh, that's quite a list, huh? *shrugs shoulders*
Newest phrase that I've found myself using (thanks to the Grey's Anatomy cast ): Seriously.
Do you like it?
If you don't, than, seriously, you're so annoying.
