Like Nails On a Chalkboard

Do you know what sound drives me absolutely nuts? That sticky squealing noise of fingers squeaking and clawing at a full balloon. You know, that horrible whining sound you hear just moments before the inevitable POP! The very same sound can be produced by gnawing on the balloon with your teeth.

*shudder*

That sound is just terrible.

You wanna know what makes that squeaking sound even more annoying? I'll tell you what makes that squeaking sound more annoying (thanks for asking, by the way).

WHEN THE AIRPLANE
YOU ARE ABOARD
MAKES THAT SOUND
DURING TAKEOFF!!!

On the bright side . . . I have a new item to add to my list of "Annoyances Irritants and Pet Peeves."

That's sheer carelessness on the part of the airline. I wouldn't fly with them again. They're supposed to remove all balloons from the runway before takeoff.

No kidding. The balloons were bad enough, but smooshing all those clowns on the runway really disturbed the children on board.

On the bright side, smooshing the clowns before take-off ensures that none will survive to fly on the wing of the plane...
