The Friday Five

Jeff Dunham's buddy, Walter
Five things that chapped me this week.

1. Himself and I get our respective hair cut at the same salon. My hair is just a tad longer than his hair. We both get a wet cut. That is, head washed and hair cut. No mousse, goop, spray, set, styled or blown dry. His hair cut $18. My haircut $30. The salon raised the prices this week. His hair cut $22 and my haircut $35.

2. I went to by a pair of new jeans. If I stand up straight, I'm 5 feet 1 1/2 inches tall (though I lie on my driver's license and list myself as 5 feet 2 inches tall. Shhhhh, don't tell.) In either case, I need to buy trousers that are sized for petites, under 5 feet 3 inches tall. So clothing manufacturers, since when is a 30 inch inseam the right length for petite? A 30 inch inseam is for Amazon women, not Hobbits.

3. Target (or any store for that matter) when you have two registers open and 12 people in line at each one, open another damn register or two. Your clerks shouldn't be stocking shelves while people are waiting days to check out.

4. Michael's how about offering 40% off the entire order instead of one stupid item?

5. AMC you're supposed to show movie classics, but all you show are more commercials.

Want to add to my list?


  1. Oh I could go on and much room do you have on the list!? So it isn't just over here where price hikes and illogical systems happen then, lol.

  2. Don't tempt me to complain today. The snow is finally gone this week and I am happy.

    One cool thing - your new blog looks great!

  3. I sure do like the look of your blog! So clean...nice!

    Something that chapped me this week was standing at a crosswalk in a school zone, waiting for 4 cars to whiz by without stopping to let me cross. I had even stepped out in the street.

    1. Thanks, Sherrinda. Waiting in a crosswalk, you must have been in Massachusetts.

  4. The checkout line thing would chap me too! I do like the new blog look. :)

  5. I'm with Ann, I could add to this list without any trouble! (This must be the week to whine! Check out tomorrow's post! LOL)
