What's Good for the Goose

In the interest of fair play, things I do to drive my loved one's nuts.

1. I lose my cell phone and purse almost every day. I've developed at least three or four places to put my purse, and the cell I want to keep in the purse, but more often than not the cell and the purse have a fight and both tend to wander.

My normal course of action is to become quite agitated and try and get everyone to drop everything to find said items. The phone is easier; I call it. I think 1/3 the "missed" phone calls to my cell have been me, trying to locate the dear. The only reason I know where my phone is now is because dh took it upstairs to recharge it.

2. I clear people's plates/cups and the like before they are ready. I get into a mood, do a clean sweep, and is it my fault they are still eating or in the process of making a sandwich?

3. I have apopletic fits over missing toys. This is a catastrophic event, and I will tear the house apart trying to find the other car to the "Traffic Jam" game, or a piece of puzzle. Of course said missing piece also requires everyone stop and help me find it.---who knows? The fate of the world may depend on my finding the skirt to one of their magnetic dolls.

I'm sure there are other things, but these are the ones I thought of right off.

oh yes, I am one of those. I need to find things that can wait and fuss over the non essential. Its a control thing. I am also a screamer and a thrower in rehabilitation. I am a self admitted rage-a-holic. Thank GD my husband is a Steady Freddy, but that drives me crazy too.
