Who Let the Dogs Out?

Who gets on your last available nerve? What is it about them that really irks you? Laura shares a story about a certain person who insists on "letting his dog out" regardless of how it affects anyone else. Show Notes: Welcome back to lift with Laura....So, today I’d like to talk about a certain type of person that gets on my nerves. But before I go into it, I wanted to ask YOU, what type of person gets on YOUR nerves? Is it that person that’s always late? Or maybe someone who is condescending?  or maybe when you encounter a really impatient person at the grocery store. Like, you see that the cashier is doing everything in her power to get this person through the line but this person is just being a butt about it and rolling their eyes or maybe its the know-it-all type people that irk you. Like no matter what you say, they've just got to one-up you with another comment, not even really listening to what you said.... well, I'd like to tell you a story about a certain type of person that gets on MY nerves and how dealing with this situation has made me delve into myself and ask, "why am I letting this person affect me like this?" Stick around and let’s try to figure this thing out together..... --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/laura-graham8/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/laura-graham8/support

I had to be in the same vehicle as her. Comment: Meg, you are strong I woulda puked, then go buy gloves, then I would have sterilized every inch of my car she was near. I am so glad for you she didn't spit or puke in your car, besides Meg Scott it was gross and I used so many Clorox wipes and gloves to clean everything!!! Comment: Seems like a bit of dementia mixed with alcohol going on . I would’ve died though 😂 Meg Scott I was trying to not laugh at the situation obviously but I was dying inside! I still wonder if she got her lighter out 🤭 Comments: Hopefully she remembered where the lighter is Meg Scott OMG I didn’t even think of that!!!! More importantly, will it still work⁉️🤔 Comment: If the strip search at the nursing home is as thorough as what they do in jails/prisons, they *will* find that lighter! JS.😏 Meg Scott eewwwwww Comments: Priceless!!
