Life is full of necessary evils. It's those things that we have to do but we dread it every time they come up.

Recently, I asked the question on social media. - "What is one thing you have to do, but you dread it every time?" The responses were fairly predictable.

We Hate Medical Visits

It wasn't surprising that the most popular response had to do with medical visits. Those things just make us so uncomfortable.  Another popular response was "go to work." It's something you have to do to pay the bills and put food on the table, but that doesn't mean you have to like it. If you truly enjoy your job and go to work with a smile on your face every day, you are one of the lucky ones.

Surprising Things Not On the List

What surprised me most about Grand Junction's responses to the question is what wasn't on the list. Nobody said anything about how they hate to have to make a left turn onto North Avenue or Patterson. I truly hate doing that and avoid it at all costs.  I also thought someone might mention how much they hate dealing with traffic in the Rimrock Marketplace during the holiday shopping season. Talk about a three-ring circus. What about visiting the DMV? I can't believe nobody mentioned it.

The fact is, life is filled with unpleasant tasks that must be done. For many of us, there is that one thing that stands out above the rest - that one thing that we just dread every time we have to do it.

Take a look at the responses below and see how many of these you can relate to. My guess is there will be at least one or two that will ring true for you.
