Obnoxious: Word of the day Challenge

This is…

What is more obnoxious than…….

  • telemarketers calling but leaving no message?
  • a group of people stopping right in front of you at the mall, oblivious that you are now part of the group?
  • a toddler screaming for no reason except that they didn’t get what they wanted?
  • ordering take-out and getting it home only to see that they made your meal wrong?
  • going to the store for one thing and coming out with a load of items but NOT the one thing you went in for?
  • having a craving for something sweet but having not one treat in the house?
  • finally finding a favorite brand and then they discontinue it?
  • a little kid screaming and the adult screaming even louder to shut them up? (like that will ever work?!?!?!?)
  • waiting for the mail only to find junk mail and supermarket flyers?
  • needing two eggs for your recipe but you only have one?
  • not having staples when you only needed one?

    I vote for the screaming toddler. I was on an airplane that was trying to land in very windy weather, and some kid was screaming behind me, which wasn’t doing much for my confidence that the plane would land safely. When we finally landed, the kid’s mother got up, picked up the ball he had dropped, and handed it to him. The screaming and ballyhooing were replaced by giggles of delight. As I left the plane, one of the flight attendants asked if I was all right, she saw the way I was gripping the armrests and gritting my teeth. I told her it was the little ——– that was screaming the whole time because his ball rolled away and no one would get it for him. The kid and his mother were standing behind me. I didn’t care.
