Noises that are certain to drive me up the wall:
1.) Whining preschoolers.
2.) Two whining preschoolers.
3.) Different noise-making cars/trucks going all at once.
4.) The sound of glass breaking in the grocery store.
5.) Preschoolers crying about nothing.
6.) Mothers coddling screaming preschoolers when they should be disciplining them.
For the record, the preschooler was not mine and the Mother was not me. It's been a long, long day and I just want some quiet. There's something about noisy, whiney children that just makes me want to tear my hair out and scream myself (and this is also true when the whining child IS mine, which is thankfully not too often) -- I almost reached that point today.
