My 5 Obsessions

I've been tagged by Single Ma, so now I have to blog about my 5 obsessions. First, let me start by saying I do not have any obsessions. There are a few things that I may think about and do constantly, but I would not call them obsessions. So here they are, in no particular order.

1). My checking account: I look at it every day, maybe a few times per day. When you are as broke as I am there is no room for error in your checking account. I balance my checkbook to the penny. Yes I do keep a check register. It is in my purse. I can tell you where every dime of my direct deposit went.

2.) Online Banking: See above.

3.) Gas Mileage: This is a new one. I am forever watching my gas gauge to make sure it does not move too fast.

4.) Rude kids: Laaawwwwdddd I have this undying urge to smack people's rude kids. Can I just say I have no kids, so please don't think am evil. It is just that, some of these damn kids that come into the store at my part-time gig drive me crazy. Screaming at the top of their little lungs because they cannot get a damn ball.

5.) Flossing: I floss my teeth more than I probably should...read more than once per day. I guess part of it is because I do not like to go to the Dentist, so I over compensate.

If you are having trouble with the kids at work, invest in a Mosquito Device.

It emits a high pitch noise at 17 KHz, well above the hearing range for adults, but just right for those under the age of about 25.

The noise coming out of it drives them crazy and...they leave.

Damn. I check not just my bank account but damn near every account every day. It's anal I know but keeps me sane.

About #5- maaaaaaan, there's this guy at my job that flosses what seems like every 3 hours. His dentist probably hates him. Can't get no money outta dude. :)

LMAO @ jagular. Now you know that's cruel. Funny as hell. But cruel. LOL

Tired, I'm wit ya on the bank accounts. I used to check ALL of my accounts everyday, it was time consuming, until I got turned on to one of those aggregators. Now I login to one account and it checks the balances on everything. Love it!

Even though I'm a mom, I hate rude kids too. That's why I only had one and I NEVER babysit for anyone else. Bad azz crumb snatchers!
