    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    people that get mad or irritated over little stuff

    ** people that just don't let small stuff roll off their backs, take life with a grain of salt, people that do not smell the roses, people that do not realize that the sun shining is a blessing, people that do not think of every single breath as an honor and blessing!!! they irk me to no end!! and people that fuss and complain all the time!!! they need to think about the alternative to living!!

    Toilet-seat pee-ers.

    Using an apostrophe to indicate that something is plural.

    Clothes for little girls that have large, sparkly block-letter words over the rump in a sexually suggestive way.
    ShayKTen replied to DidiToo's response:
    toilet-seat pee-ers, YES! And those that use the tissue to cover the seat while they do their business but then don't make sure that it gets flushed down with the rest of their mess. Seriously, come on people!!!!

    When DH doesn't rinse his milk glass.

    When DH leaves a soda can where DS can reach it and then gets mad at DS when he plays with it.

    When DS won't take a nap but then falls asleep on the floor of his bedroom while playing.

    People who use the "R" word (see Sue's response)

    Parents that drive like lunatics when dropping their kids off at school in the morning, as though they have no concept of the fact that not only are there OTHER PEOPLE dropping their kids off too, but KIDS running around as well!

    People that borrow money to pay their bills, but then have the newest I-Phone and buy new TVs or whatever all the time. That just makes me CRAZY! Take care of the essentials (food, rent/mortgage, utilities) first, and THEN you can have your fun stuff!

    breezy_83255 responded:
    People who can't push in their own chairs (MIL, FIL, DH!!!)

    People who know you've spent the entire day cleaning/disinfecting while home SICK, but all they comment on is how the house "stinks" like cleaner (DH)

    Grammatical/spelling errors. Doesn't really bother me on here (not the time or place to care!), but it drives me insane when I see other teachers or professionals misuse the English language. We have a special ed teacher that makes up words to use inside her run-on sentences!!

    ***Can you tell DH is on my list today? That's what happens when I'm sick, hormonal, and tired!! :smile:
    Heather- 29, Josh- 30, DD1- 31/2, DD2- 1 1/2, Baby Boy!!!! EDD 2-1-11
    IslandGirl58 responded:
    I second the use of apostrophes to indicate plural as well as grammatical errors such as confusion of your/you're and their/there/they're. (Not typos, we all do that, especially when typing fast!!)

    Parents that don't bother to discipline their child, even when they are right there watching their kid do something inappropriate or mean to your child.

    People who feel that their way of thinking, and their opinion is the only way to think, and won't admit that simply because your opinion differs does not make you wrong.

    things that cost $1.04- why can't it just be a dollar? (actually the opposite happened today and I was feeling happy that my thing was an even 2$)
    DH loading plates in the top section of the dishwasher- we use too many glasses to for those plates to be taking up room up there.
    People who don't pick up their dog's poop, or that spit on the sidewalk or spit their gum where I might step on it, or just litter in general
