OK, so BarkOff is not new. It’s been featured on our website for almost six months. But after another sleepless night, I think it should be introduced to our next door neighbors. They recently adopted a shelter dog (Yay!). It’s been barking all night every night, keeping me awake and cranky (Boo!). Don’t get me wrong, because I love dogs and I want every pooch to have a loving home.
A trip downtown on the bus today got me thinking about BarkOff and how I so wish I could use it on other annoying noises… like the guy who plopped down in the seat next to me, whipped out his cell phone, then proceeded to give some friend a play-by-play of the entire bus ride. I spent the rest of the trip composing a “Top 10 Annoying Noises List”:
Hum of fluorescent lights.
Crazy Frog ringtone at table next to mine in restaurant.
Dentist drill, even if it’s being used on someone else.
Snoring spouse, when I can’t get to sleep.
All Ford commercials with Toby Keith.
Car alarm, just as I’m drifting off to sleep.
Gas-powered leaf blowers at 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning.
Driving to the lake with two Styrofoam coolers rubbing together, just out of reach.
Toe-nail clipping in the next cubicle at work.
Wouldn’t it be great to tell the world to STFU, occasionally?
