There is so much excitement and so much anticipation about summer here at the Jersey Shore that we almost forget the things that drive us crazy. This summer I'm not going to let those things bother me.

That's easier to say at the beginning of the season, but I'm going to give it a try to make it through the whole summer with out getting upset at the following (usually) annoying summer things.

The every street sign reader. They don't know where they are, so at every intersection they slam on the break to read the street sign. Three words for you. G...P...S.

The loud diner at your favorite restaurant. I know the Jersey Shore is an exciting place, but I still don't know why some people think that they need to broadcast their vacation stories loud enough for the chef to hear.

The tailgating, won't let you in guy. You know the scenario. Maybe two lanes merge to one, or maybe a lane is closed. Whatever the reason, you need to merge, but the guy in the lane you need to get in won't let you. As a matter of fact, as soon as you try, he lerches forward to within inches of the car in front of you. Hey dude, relax. Do you really want to be that guy?

These are just three annoying things I've especially noticed during summer months, although they can happen any time, but this summer, I'm not going to let them bother me one bit. Check with me in September to see how I did.
