Some things I try to avoid
Not everything I face in life is going to be good, uplifting, or deserve my attention.
Here are a few things that are just not worth my time:

Poopy people
Toxic people (negative, complainers, rude, egotists)
Bitchy people
Any internet, web, or email technical support phone marathon
Ribs and wings - too difficult to eat. The work required doesn't match the food gained
Religious fanatics who believe they are correct, everyone else is wrong
People who have closed their minds well before they die
Mosquitoes - Noah should have killed both of them
Talking to people who lean their seat back on the airplane (won't help and its really their call)
Oysters. As Woody Allen says, "I will not eat oysters. I want my food dead. Not sick, not wounded - dead."
People with egos bigger than their brains
Bureaucrats
Egocrats
Theocrats
Lima beans
People when they are telling me about a movie they just saw. If I'm going to see the movie, I don't want their abridged version of it and if I'm not going to see the movie, their tale is just boring
Politicians
Used car salesmen
PWUTMAs - People who use too many acronyms
