If there were such a thing as an annoyance tax and you were in charge of it, What would be the #1 offense on your list and how much would the tax be? If you have more than one & can't decide which would be worse, list up to 3 with the tax you would set for each.

I'm not sure exactly who to tax for this, but it certainly annoys me... When I'm on the internet, every 15-20 minutes I get a message asking me if I want to stay connected. (I'm using it, aren't I!?!) And then when I want to log off, I get a message asking me if I'm sure I want to log off! (Would I be logging off if I didn't want to log off!?!) Arghhh!

LOL, I like these. Maybe you could help cut down on the number of traffic accidents with this kind of penalty. :)

Ha ha ha I like this one. Let's see the first one would be. Saying "momy mommy mommy" over and over and over. What should the tax be. .. .$1.00 for every Mommy that was said. Annoyance number two. . .bill collectors calling 15 times a day!! that would be and automatic $5.00 per phone call placed. .even if they left a message on the machine! Annoyance number three. .Talking on your cell phone in a restaraunt. . .HMMM that would be and additional 2% increase of there bill.

LOL Very good ones! I can especially appreciate your #2 offence as I spent two years at a collection agency. I think you'd collect a ton of penalty payments with that one, even on the messages alone! LOL
