30 Day Challenge - Day 11

30 Day Challenge - Day 11 - A Picture of Something you Hate

Hate is a strong word and I don't like to use it often. It doesn't roll off my tongue nicely, and I sometimes cringe when I hear it.

But, that being said, there are certainly things (not people) that I hate:

  • I hate that there are kids who go hungry each day; in 3rd world countries and in our own communities.
  • I hate that there is such thing as animal cruelty and that our shelters are full of deserving animals.
  • I hate that there are elderly people, everywhere, who don't have family or friends to visit them.
  • I hate cancer.
But I am going to address today's challenge on a much lighter note:

I hate it when people abuse and overuse the "reply all" feature.

I really, seriously, down-to-my-toes hate it! There are certainly times when "reply all" is necessary; my family uses it a lot when we want to include everyone in the conversation. That's fine. However, it certainly should not be used for such things like, "thank you," "congrats," or my personal favorite, "remove me from this list-serve."

It's amazing how much better I feel now that I got that out! That is all!

Amen, sister! Down with the "reply-all"!!! I think it goes back to our nerdy English side and following grammatical/writing rules ; )

Hahaha I love it. I have my "reply all" moments. I hope you're not writing this JUST about me.
