Poll Time!!

Just a few quirky little questions for us all to answer. Since it takes me almost an hour to get to work and back home, I do lots of thinking. So, this is what I came up with. lol

1. What is the weirdest thing you have seen someone do while driving?

***Well, this morning I was sitting at a red light and I looked in my rear view mirror to see a woman picking her zit. EW! Okay, I am not saying you can pick the pimples people, but can we do it at home? lol

2. How would you explain to your children about the birds and the bees? (If you have kids, tell me how the topic came up and how it was explained.)

*** My son was in the bathroom yesterday and yelled for me. He asked, " What are these little balls were my pee-pee, mommy?" I was like, " Uh.." Then, I thought, well they are little balls and I suppose that is where everyone developed the vulgar terms from, but I explained that those were his "testicles", of course he wanted to know why he had them, and why mommy didnt. Well, he wanted to know what they were for. I guess, a boy...a ball, and then he realizes he has them is sort of cool. Maybe this is where the boys, or men, develop the tendency to grab themselves often. lol OK, so I didnt really want to get into telling my 5 yr old that the testicles were the sacs where sperm were, and the sperm made babies, cause he would not let it go. It would just start this discussion, that I feel at 5, he is not ready to hear. I just need some time to think of how I want to explain it. I know it is simple, but I dont want him to go to school and tell all the other kids something their parents may not want them to know right now. lol Anywho. Hope that didnt offend anyone! lol

3. What do see as a waste of time?

*** The reason I ask this is because yesterday I called my bank and asked if I could deposit money from another account, the girl tells me yes. Well, I take my lunch and drive 30 minutes to my one bank branch, (thus the other account-attempting to change banks) so I get there, and this other girl tells me I cannot just deposit the money into my account, it will take 3 days to verify. WEll, I got upset, to say the least. I told her they had wasted my whole lunch break and if that was the case, she should have informed me of that over the phone. I wasted my time. I could have done something else on my lunch break. Ran another errand, or even...ATE! lol So, my thing is this...I never realized what "time" meant until I had two children and realized how precious my time was! lol SO, the moral of story is....DONT WASTE MY TIME! lol Im kidding.

4. Pet Peeves? (since I just told you one of mine...wasting time.lol)

***Wasting time. lol Stumping my little toe on the dresser, or bumping my head on a cabinet left open. Slow drivers, fast drivers. Can we not do the speed limit people? lol One thing I cannot stand is when you go to a drive thru of any kind, food, beverage, or whatever and they sqrew your order up. Bad service being a big pet peeve for me ! Obnoxious people are big no-no for me. Cant stand em and I will call em out in public when I come across those kinda of people. GRRR. lol Anywho. I have more, but those are the maijor ones. lol

Ok, now its everyone else's turn. Take the poll and tell me all about it. I did 4 q's since it is Thursday. Thursday 4's perhaps! lol WOO HOO!

1. What is the weirdest thing you have seen someone do while driving?

***I've seen people reading, putting on makeup and talking to themselves (not singing...talking)

2. How would you explain to your children about the birds and the bees? (If you have kids, tell me how the topic came up and how it was explained.)

***Oh gosh....I have NO idea how I'll even deal with that...I have awhile lol

3. What do see as a waste of time?

***Doing all the stupid little things that take up time....brushing my teeth (even though its gross if you wouldn't), doing my hair, waiting in line's....just stupid stuff lol

4. Pet Peeves?

***People that drive to slow, horse buggies (trust me, where I live this is a BIG problem), people that don't call when they're supposed to, when I go to buy something and they're out....a lot of dumb little things tick me off sometimes lol
