    You can't put trash sacks on the ground here, they have to be in the cans or they don't get picked up.

    Our shower doesn't have a curtain or door.
    My whole bathroom would be a big water puddle.

    We don't have garbage pick up here. We have to recycle everything we can and we burn the little bit that we can't recycle.

    We have to have a fire permit to burn, and I don't think anyone knows what the word recycle means.

    We get fire permits too. I recycle everything I possibly can because I have to pay for bags for the ashes in the burn barrel to get rid of it. The less I burn, the better.

    I'm sorry! That was me!

    The general decline of the English language. Speaking/Spelling - I cringe at: "I seen it" "Yous guys" "It don't matter" - just to name a few.

    I hate it when the covers are too tight over my toes in the bed at night. :lol:

    Also, when the neighbor's sweet old dog drags the cat food dish off into the yard.

    Oh, and when I have to stand at the sink with the water running for a full minute til it warms up enough to put my hands under it in the winter. Just hate that!

    My pet peeves are people (including newscasters) who use "I and "Me" in the wrong place "Rose spent the day with Jake and I instead of "Rose spent the day with Jake and me"...it just grates!

    Servers in restaurants who refer to my lady friends and me as "You Guys".

    I had to look and see if your location was Montana. Same here.
