Who really tries your patience?

For me it's my mother in law. Who pushes your buttons?

  • I avoid my MIL like the plague and she lives 3 states away so I avoid her button pushing for the most part. I have a client who is getting married next month who is a total PITA. I have been her hair stylist for 10 years and this nice woman has turned into BRIDEZILLA. She is calling me every week about how we are going to do her hair or whats to tell me she wants to do soemthing different with her color before the wedding (which is fine - tell me at hte appointment the week before the wedding, not every day you get a new idea). I am about ready to stop taking her calls because she is down right scary right now. I bet I am not the only "professional" she is harrassing. The caterer and florist are probably about ready to drop her too. =P

  • My daughter, this lady at work- she waddles like a duck and talks to her self, most of my neighbors, and MIL- she moved far away, so not much of an issue now

  • I think it's not always an individual thing but when I'm asked questions by family members things that they could answer for themselves because they don't want to take the time out to think through something for themselves.
