I do have one lately though, it's a spinoff from a grand peeve....
Grown adults that can't pick up after themselves. I hate dishes in the sink (there's soap and a rag right there or that failing, a big shiny stainless steel dishwasher), half empty (or half full) water bottles sitting everywhere, food wrapping, etc, etc, etc.... dump your dirty clothes in the washing machine, eyeball some detergent in and push the dang button, stuff them in the dryer and ....push the dang button.... jeeze, you'd think they had to go down to the river and beat them on a rock... sweep up the place you're staying, or drag the vacuum cleaner that is sitting in the corner across the room so the dried dirt won't be ground into sand along with the floor.
Maybe I should stop. That is really not calming me down much to go to sleep.

I like to give our flowers and veggies the best chance I can so I feel the need to side dress organic liquid fertilizer. This task would be a lot easier on my back if the wand for spraying was 24 - 30 inches long. The factory standard of 14 inches just doesn’t seem very user friendly.
Why is it that when you're shopping for something in the right size and actually find it, you discover that you get home with the wrong size? Happened with a bra last week. So happy I found one bra (in the entire store) in the correct size but when I went to pull the tags off I discovered I must have accidentally grabbed the wrong one. And speaking of bras (sorry guys), why is the current trend padded bras that look like a suit of armor? Is it really necessary for a bra to stand up on its own? Has the designer of these bras ever worked outside in the heat with a padded bra on? Okay, rant over.
Stores that do not carry decent selections of women's work gloves... You're lucky, gentlemen...As a rule, you're given a better selection... I do not need flimsy, flowery, useless gloves... Yep, they're sold online but I need to try on gloves...They're either right or they're wrong...

ahntjudy i know right?? i have these cute little flowery ones for looks, but they're super flimsy and if I actually use them for yard work they'll definitely get torn up. I just use men's work gloves, even though they're way too big for me.
I get cheap gloves from Menards, mainly because they are lightweight. They have nitrile palm and fingers so are no slip and somewhat waterproof. They seem to last 3-4 months. Probably longer if I'd wash them more often! I have a collection of them in a bucket in the garage. I've left nice gloves at Dad's before, never to see them again. So cheap it is.
A few years ago my sister gave me a box of garden gloves for Christmas. She found them on clearance in the fall. There were probably 10 pairs. There were cheappies and nice ones. I think I'm on my last pair. Which leads to a pet peeve. Why can I only find one glove. I have probably 5 left hands and no right hands.

Most of the gloves I use are either the thin neoprene or vinyl, or the cloth with rubber dots, all of which fit either hand. Only very rarely do I use some heavy duty gloves, that are right and left type.
It kind of depends on what I'm doing that I decide which gloves to wear. Leather for Thistles and thorns, canvas for most other things. The cloth ones have come in handy for dirty light work. I have been known to wear gloves on the wrong hands because I couldn't find a pair.
