Addendum to the Short List

1. Patchouli. I really hate the way patchouli smells and not just because it typically is being used in a vain attempt to conceal horrific body odor.Patchouli makes the very back of my tongue convulse, kind of like gagging but not quite. Seriously, I would take just the body odor any day.

2. Baby talk. If you are over the age of 18 months baby talk is never okay.

3. Overuse/misuse of the same word. The classic example here is the misuse of literally, but if you heard the misuse of the word exactly approximately 10 times a day from the same individual, you might harbor some ill feelings too.

4. Single use items that are supposed to make life easier but are really just a huge waste of resources and go straight to the landfill. Don't get me wrong, I am frequently really lazy but even I can dust a bookshelf and still muster the energy to wash a rag.

5. Littering. Especially when it's the kind that a lot of people do and don't even think about. I'm talking about balloons here people. I hate it when people let helium balloons go and think that they are sending out wishes or something of the sort. If your wish is for dead marine animals, then by all means let those balloons go folks.
