I also despise whistlers.

There's something about whistling that really annoys me. I can't pinpoint exactly what it is, but I find the behavior rather creepy and odd. I'm not talking about the kind of whistler who reserves his whistling for sporting events or grabbing someone's attention in a crowd. My dad is that kind of whistler, and I still turn to look for him no matter where I am when I hear his trademark whistle. I'm talking about the kind of whistler who whistles Top 40 tunes and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" or makes up his own little diddy as he goes. I read several blogs, but one of my favorites is ( Heather's most recent post cracked me up so much because it was about this very topic: creepy whistlers! I think the worst thing about whistlers is that they begin to rub off on you no matter how creepy you might think their whistling is. There's a guy who works at my school who is a chronic whistler, and on a few occasions I've been cooking dinner whistling away obliviously until Angus is like, "Dude, what's with the whistling? I thought you hated that." Gee, thanks guy from work, now I'm a creepy whistler! So if you're ever around me and you happen to be a whistler - #1 Don't be offended if I shoot nasty glares in your direction, and #2 Please refrain from rubbing your whistling habits off on innocent bystanders like me.


  1. At least your husband isn't a whistler! Mine is and I too think it is creepy... and just annoying. He is also a pretend beat boxer and I have had to stop the car and look at him right in the face and beg him to stop because it is that aggravating. I am just praying it doesn't rub off on our kids. Apparently he has been like this since childhood and his parents always knew he was home from school when they heard him whistling home from the bus stop. He whistles in the bathroom. Oh man. I feel you, girl. I feel you and I am happy for you that Angus is whistle free. :)

  2. omg. i HATE whistlers. who from work is a whistler? i can't remember...
