Things I could do without

Things I could do without

What are some things you could do without? Not to complain, just some things that make you think, “You know what? If those things didn’t exist, I wouldn’t mind!”

There are many things I could do without, so I figured it was high time I made a partial list. A complete list would be nearly impossible. So here goes.

Some things I could do without, in no particular order.

  • Checks the credit card company sends you to write onto your card balance
  • Morning breath
  • Small, yappy dogs
  • Ok, big, snarly dogs too
  • Chapped lips
  • Frizzy hair (mine–I don’t mind other peoples’)
  • Realizing I have to pee just minutes after I leave the house
    • Especially when I *did* pee right before I left
  • Burrito fart mandles
  • Mustaches
  • Spotty beards and mustaches that don’t connect to the beard
  • OK, fine, beards in general
  • Pit stains
  • Freezing rain (bring on the snow, however!)
  • Sticky fingers
  • Standing in line at the airport TSA checkpoint
  • Being interrupted
  • Morning meetings
  • People taking selfies at the gym, if I am waiting for the equipment they are occupying
  • Merging slowly onto the freeway
  • Facebook status updates that are meant for a particular person who isn’t named, presumably because the author lacks the courage to tell the person their thoughts directly
  • Combative status updates that are followed by comment fights
  • Skinny jeans on dudes
  • Skinny jeans period
  • Redefinition of words
  • Cavities
  • The recycling of 80 & 90s fashions. Acid washed jeans, seriously?

I could go on, but that’s a big enough list for now. Negativity is exhausting. 🙂

  1. I agree with most of these. Now how about (on the positive side), a list of things you CANNOT do without?
