There are many things that really grind my gears. I mean, I am a pretty tolerant person I would say and my friends would agree with me. In fact, they often ask me, "how are you so nice to people that are rude" and my answer is simple, "they suck and I don't".

After putting some thought into it, I realized there are more things on a daily that I am getting less and less tolerant of. So for your enjoyment and possibly your agreeance, I have compiled a list of the top 5 things I see regularly in Bozeman that really grind my gears.

Top 5 Things I See In Bozeman, That Really Grind My Gears

5. Riding My A**. This is starting to get me really mad. It has been happening more and more every day and I have slowly been finding myself cussing them out under my breath.


4. Not knowing how to walk in an aisle or on a sidewalk. It's not rocket science, but considering the fact that the driving here is absurd, I guess I wouldn't expect people to use the same "rules" when walking. Walking is like a two lane road, I'm on the right, you're on the left. When we we are walking straight on, I go to the right, and you go to the left. It's literally THAT simple.

3. Parking. PARKING. As we know, Bozeman is populated which means that parking correctly is very important so that we can all fit. So when you park like a complete idiot, on the lines, over the lines, sometimes not even in any lines as pictured below, you screw up everything. There is no one that is SO important that they get to make their own parking spot. Although some of you clearly think you're of some higher power. You're not.


2. Walking your dog off leash. First, there is a leash law in Bozeman, so for all the "kings and queens" of Bozeman, that think that doesn't apply to their angel of a dog, you're mistaken. When a dog on a leash bites your dog, it will be hard for me to feel bad for you. I am a dog lover, not a people pleaser.

1. Talking on speaker phone/facetiming in public. This is by far one of the most annoying things EVER. I don't need to hear your conversation, no one cares, and this isn't high school where we need "all the details".


It's rude, it's inconsiderate, and the waitress/waiter will ignore you until you are done. So do us all a favor and sit in your car if you want to stare at someone on your phone and have a pointless conversation on speaker phone.

You may or may not agree with these 5 things, but I'm guessing if you disagree it's because you're doing one or more of them. In that case, quit it.

20 License Plates Banned In Montana

This is just a small glimpse at banned license plates in the state of Montana. There are well over 4000 that could be added to this list.

Now why some of these are banned is beyond me. I don't find any of them offensive, that's for sure; the state of Montana has the right to refuse:

"any combination of letters or numbers, or both, that may carry connotations offensive to good taste and decency or which are misleading or a duplication of license plates provided elsewhere."- Montana Motor Vehicle Department

What plates are banned in your state? Hopefully, they are not as picky as Montana.

Yellowstone Actor, Kevin Costner Rents Out 160 Acre Ranch

Kevin Costner recently stated that he would be renting out his Aspen, Colorado home. Don't get me wrong, the "Dunbar Ranch" is beautiful. Sitting on 160 acres of land, the ranch comes with many perks.

You will be able to enjoy fly fishing on the river, a lazy day next to the lake, and a game of baseball on the private baseball field just to list a few of the extra amenities.

Montana has a handful of celebrities that own homes here in Big Sky Country. Is this going to be a new trend among the elite?

For $36,000 per night, you could book a spectacular stay at Costner's Aspen Ranch Home.

Vintage Photos Of Montana

It's hard to imagine what Yellowstone National Park would look like in black and white. We are so used to seeing the colors that make it one of America's favorite travel destinations. Jezel Doughert's grandmother passed away and like many of us do, she spent hours going through years and years of history, from old yearbooks to news clippings, to pictures. Jezel sent me a piece of history that, if not for her, I wouldn't be able to share with you.
