In a comment on last week’s Have You Ever?! quiz, Tam lamented, “Nothing pisses me off more than baggers who put 3 items in every bag. I put it on the conveyor belt grouped by item so is it really so hard to put them in the bag in that order. All the frozen stuff in one, cans in another? Is that difficult? Especially now that I have to pay .5 per bag. I have been known to compliment checkers on their bagging skills if they do a great job. Okay, it would appear I have issues. Deep breath.”
Never have I seen a Canadian get so enraged over something so trivial. Perhaps they aren’t really as nice as they seem … they’re just experts at bottling up their fury? From this idea (and from Mikey’s suggestion), a super-sneaky Have You Ever?! quiz was born. Instead of contacting Tam and asking her to make us a list … we simply stalked her Twitter account and easily amassed a list of 25 things that annoy her. I think you’ll get a kick out of them! (Just don’t kick her … that might annoy her too!) You know the rules: For each question that you answer ‘yes’ to, give yourself a single point. When you reach the end of the quiz, add up your points and post your total in the comments.
Have You Ever?!
1. Have you ever manufactured malfunctioning oven timers?
2. Have you ever confused Tam, causing her to put the wrong date on a review post?
3. Have you ever been responsible for political ads on the TV and radio?
4. Have you ever forced Tam to attend riding lessons every Sunday?
5. Have you ever used the term “pelt” on humans?
6. Have you ever not called Tam back when she was on a deadline?
7. Have you ever been the cause of Tam’s bursitis in her should?
8. Have you ever rescheduled Canadian buses as a way to cut spending?
9. Have you ever designed a phone that only holds a charge for 6 hours or less?
10. Have you ever charged $8.50 for a litre of Evian in a hotel room?
11. Have you ever been the cause of a mess of papers on Tam’s desk?
12. Have you ever required Tam to visit the DMV?
13. Have you ever shot the messenger because you were pissed off over the fact that your supervisor is waaaaaay overstepping her bounds?
14. Have you ever been slow to deliver pizza?
15. Have you ever done anything to Tam that would cause her upper earring to hurt and her ear to burn?
16. Have you ever caused Tam’s throat to hurt when she swallows? (Polt, stop laughing.)
17. Have you ever taken Tam shopping?
18. Have you ever been the cause of disorganization?
19. Have you ever been responsible for briefing notes?
20. Have you ever been to blame for a headache directly over Tam’s left eye?

22. Have you ever been the muse behind one of Tam’s big blog promos?
23. Have you ever caused Tam’s Outlook to jam up by creating or utilizing an electronic storage system for filing?
24. Have you ever manufactured cat food that was so delicious that it caused Tam’s cat to ‘pig it down’ and then vomit it back up before even stepping away from the dish?
25. Have you ever dripped rain off the roof outside Tam’s patio doors and caused her to be annoyed by the sound and liken it to Chinese water torture?
I’m guessing that most people will score rather low on this quiz. But be warned if you score more than a few points… Everyone’s favorite Canadian may rain down on you with a shower of rage that’s unlike anything the world has ever seen. Or she may just tweet about it and smile. Share your quiz results in the comments!
