10 Ways To Send Me To Heebie-Jeebie Town

Day 83 of 365:

{One Word Prompt}


When I hear the word nerve, what I see is nerves.  

Which makes me think: annoyance and agitation.

And believe me, there are lots of things in my world that annoy, agitate and get on my nerves.

Actually, I am more fond of the term “Heebie-Jeebies”.  It’s cuter and less abrasive, don’t you think?

So, I thought it would be best to turn this one-word writing prompt into a list, because you all know how much I like my lists!

10 Ways To Send Me Heebe-Jeebie Town:

  1. DO NOT sit at the same table with me, during a meal, and eat your food in a manner so that I can hear it being chewed.  (gah)
  2. Finding wet towels lying on the bathroom floor.  (YUCK – germies!)
  3. My dog slowly licking her lips at 3 am.  (please.stop.now)
  4. A slowly dripping tap, or, the sound of running water at 1 am, 2 am, and 4 am (killmenow)drip drip
  5. Do NOT incorrectly load the dishwasher in my presence.  EVER.  (yikes!)
  6. Not picking up your after your dog while taking him/her for a walk.  (Oh come on!  Seriously?)
  7. Facebook ranty-type posts riddled with spelling mistakes, poor grammar and improper (or down right abusive) use of punctuation.  (My eyes!  My brain!  It hurts!)
  8. Sounds that could possibly be made by a snake.  (Run away.  Run far, far, FAR away.)
  9. Witnessing the blatant misuse or misquoting of song lyrics, quotes from The Simpsons and one liners from movies.  (huh?)
  10. (this one may seem kinda weird) Cold air from an air conditioner blasting at my face.  (oh hellllllp – my eyeballs are being sucked dry!)

BONUS – 11th thing that will get on my nerves:

11. Telling me I can’t do something.  Believe me, I will prove that you are wrong. (Ha!  Take that!)


What sends you to Heebie-Jeebie Town?

    1. I read somewhere – on the internet, so you know it’s true – that if the sound of chewing food makes you cringe then you are most likely a genius…. 😉 Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  1. love it, i have a leaky faucet, a itchy dog that loves to come up in my bed and make that licking himself sound all night, #@$% I hate those things, and leaving dishes everywhere in the house, or better yet handing them to me like i am the damn sink..or or or…i could go on and on..mainly i like your post 😁
