1.  Children Sucking Their Teeth at other people.  I can think of nothing more irritating to me.  I would rather a child screamed at me then do this.

 2.  Listening to people bash teachers.  Now, I have no problem with you bashing the bad teacher that isn't working with you, or that votes a child out of class.  It is the generalizations that kill me.  You will never know how much time and money I put into what I do to reach the children I work with.  Can you imagine if one person answers a phone rudely so I hate every secretary.  One SAHM I see on Dr. Phil is a prescription drug addict so I talk about how all of them are.  Don't lump us all together.

 3.  Child Abusers:  Any kind of abuse kills me.  Why would anyone hurt a child.

I was wondering the same thing, about "sucking their teeth".

3 things huh?  ....

1. People Smoking.....

2. People Smoking around children...

3. People standing outside of a CHILDREN'S CANCER TREATMENT CENTER SMOKING!!!!!!

If you're going to smoke, go get yourself a plactic bubble and do it in there...don't try to kill everyone around you!

Jun. 1, 2008 at 6:38 PM I also think its bad to generalise teachers. There really are good ones and bad ones. We all should know that at least from our own childhood. But yeah, most ppl always put one group of ppl in the same pot as if we would be a bunch of clones and not individuals!

Three things that I hate:
1. People who cut others off in traffic, like their time and space is more important.  I'm one of those people who slows down so others can enter a lane or so that people can cross a street.
2. Nails on a chalkboard/forks dragged on a plate--know what I mean?  Oy, gives me the chills.
3. Living with phobias that effect my everyday life! (Fear of heights, driving in unfamiliar areas, etc).

Oh wait  those don;t make me angry, lol.  Sorry.  Let me try again.
1. same as above.
2.  When people  deliberately do things to annoy others and push them to their limits.
3.  When people leave nasty messages on your answering machine, instead of talking to you personally about a situation, espcially when this person is supposed to be a professional.

sucking teeth is when you push your tongue against your front teeth and suck

You know that noise it makes.  I guess it grates my nerves as it seems to be one of those things young children like to do at my school.  I swear if cole ever does that I will have to remove his teeth! hee just kidding.
