I is for …

…Ignorance, and I don’t mean lack of learning.

I mean bad manners, inconsiderate, idiotic behaviours.

For instance – drivers. Why do some drivers think they own the road? You know what I mean, you’re pootling along quite happily and then some idiotic, inconsiderate person decides you’re in the way and cuts by you, forcing you to take evasive action. Or if you’re on a narrow road (as a lot of local UK roads are) they pay no heed to who has right of way and just charge towards you just squeezing through without doing any damage.

Another example, people who walk through doors and don’t even think about looking behind themselves to keep it open for you to walk through.

And another. People on mobile phones, talking soooo loud it makes your ears hurt and showing absolutely no respect for a single soul about them.

And manners! It’s not just young people so I’m not blaming any particular generation here. people who can’t eat properly, can’t use cutlery, talk with their mouth’s full of food – euukkkk!

Just a short ranting post from me this week! Check out the other contributions at Jenny's blog – I’m sure they’ll be kinder than mine this week!!!

(Oh, by the way – off on my holiday tomorrow so won’t have the opportunity to visit many posts for a couple of weeks. I’m setting mine to post automatically – fingers crossed it works – and I’ll ask somebody to link me back so that I don’t get into trouble for not keeping up with the work while I’m away!!)


  1. Goodness me, someone rattled your cage good and proper! Will think of you on that sun kissed beach and that luxury boat and - oh just go will you
    (LOL) Jx

  2. i hate those things too :D

    i hope you have an aggravation free holiday :D

  3. I hear you on this one. Have a good holiday.

  4. Don't get me started! Every day I wonder about ignorance. Must be my intimate relationship with public transportation, I don't know...

    Have a great time while you're away!

  5. Oh, I feel your pain! I don't drive like a granny, but I think at least once a week someone honks at me because I have stopped at a red light before turning right! Some people are just in too much of a hurry...

  6. Oh, this caught me at just the right time. I almost got rear ended this afternoon by some bubba in a duelly pickup truck. He was in such a hurry that he apparently didn't realize that the turn signal and brake lights meant that I was slowing down. My poor little VW almost became a smart car. Actually the stupid truck was so tall that he probably could have driven over me. Ok, done ranting, go have a great holiday and at least you won't run into any ill mannered drives on the ship! Kathy

  7. It's really a hot button. I totally agree!

  8. Just make sure that your R&R gets you in the right space, and that when you return the Ignorant Idiots are blocked from your mindset...forever:-)

  9. I guess it's like that everywhere! It's the people on the cell phones while driving that bother me the most. We were behind someone today that was all over the lane. Twenty years ago I would have assumed they were drunk, but I knew it was the phone.

  10. Ignorance is definitely not bliss.

    I'm sorry you are so surrounded by it.

    Sounds like a great time to be heading off on holiday, though!

    Have a great time!

    And take this A+ along with you!

  11. I agree with you 100% on this topic ... have a great vacation!

  12. I hear you loud and clear!

  13. Hope you have a wonderful holiday and don't run in to any of the above.

    (This is supposed to show up in Chinese and is wishing you well in your travels. Literally a peaceful road.)

  14. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday! I wish you safe travels surrounded by pleasant and well-mannered people.
