— Chewing with your mouth open. Seriously, why would you do this?
1) The smacking sound alone makes me lose my appetite.
2) No one wants to see your food getting smaller and smaller.
3) It's called manners.
Did I mention how annoying that smacking sound is? And, I'm one of those people who will call you out on it, so stop it! Please.
— Not using your blinker. I'm not sure why they even put them on vehicles anymore, because 90% of the folks here in Alabama do. not. use. them. I don't understand why... is it the little clicking sound that bothers you? Whatever the reason, they really should be used because it this crazy rush hour traffic that we have, it's nice to know when someone is fixin to make a move!
— Putting your makeup on in the car. And during morning rush hour at that! A couple of things:
1) Get up early enough to do this before you leave the house because I can only image what your steering wheel looks like after you've applied all that "liquid foundation" (yes, y'all, I've seen it) and I'm sure you have powder all over your shirt, too.
2) I'll be honest, I will apply lipstick in the vehicle while I'm driving, but that doesn't take my attention off of the traffic in front of me. I can't even imagine putting all my makeup on in the vehicle. I'm pretty sure I'd have mascara and eye liner everywhere but where it needs to be.
— Not sending thank you notes. Y'all know how much I love cards — I love to send them and receive them. I just can't seem to understand why people starting thinking it was okay to not send thank you notes. If people take the time to do something nice for you, why not let them know it by sending them a personal note? Maybe I'm just old school, but a text, instagram or twitter acknowledgment is not the only way to say thanks! (BTW, I'm so thankful to those of you who do still send thank you notes.)
— Using the phrase, "praying for you" and not meaning it. We've all said it, and I can't help but wonder how many people actually mean it, or do it when they say it. I'll admit, I've been guilty of this in the past. And if we are all honest with ourselves, we've all been guilty of it. However since the New Year began, I've been writing in my prayer journal. No, I don't write every night, but I do write at least 4 or 5 times a week. (Most of the time more times than that, but that's my average.) This has been huge for me because I do actually mention those I say that to, every night in my prayers. I know why I'm praying for them, and God does too. And my reason for mentioning this is... if you say it, do it. Plain and simple.
