I’m normally a fairly upbeat and positive person, but just like anyone else, I have my pet peeves. Couple these with my sometimes non-existent patience and some days I feel like a ticking time bomb of annoyance just waiting to erupt all over someone. Having come down with some sort of “funk” either from flying last week or inhaling a heaping helping of pollen has set the stage for one of those days when the littlest of things are pissing me off. So I thought it might be cathartic to put together a little list of things that really irk me.
I guess I could just say being sick in general, but coughing specifically is the pits. I woke up about 400 times last night which ultimately led to my current zombie like state. I spent my bus ride into work focusing so hard on not coughing that I was sweating. That makes for a long trip.
I took some medicine. So now I’m a zombie, with medicine head, who is still having violent coughing spurts. Awesome. Can’t wait to go home and do the neti pot (essentially controlled drowning) again. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
Not sure if you’ve picked up on this yet, but I’m a bit dramatic when sick. And my sarcasm is at an all time high.
This is how Matt was looking at me last night. I could feel it.
This really could be almost anywhere. Traffic. Waiting in line. Today I will focus the eye rolling at people on sidewalks. Move people. Walk. The middle of the sidewalk is not the place to stop abruptly for no reason. Are you having some sort of fugue state? Don’t be surprised when people cut around you abruptly in a huff.
At lunch rush.
When there are two thousand people moving down the sidewalk.
And don’t walk three abreast and occupy the entire sidewalk so no one can pass. You can chat with your girlfriends about that funny thing your kid did last night when you get where you’re going. You are going somewhere right? No? You’re just aimlessly roaming around? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
“You’ll never guess what little Billy said last night.”
Left Lane Slow Drivers
Okay, so this is really just a continuation of the last complaint. But it bothers me so much that it deserves its own section. I’m looking at you guy going the speed limit in the left most lane.
“I’m not moving. All 100 of you cars behind me are gonna have to just wait or illegally pass. Roll Tide.”
People With No Situational Awareness
This is chick who runs right into you because she’s oblivious to the fact she’s in a world with other people. How these people don’t just wander out into traffic is beyond me. Add a cell phone and she is a Youtube video waiting to happen.
You know what? I actually feel a bit better. And my lunch break is over. So the other 102 items on the list will just have to wait for another post. Sometimes a little bitching session in the comfort of your office is helpful.
Stay Positive & Love Your Life…even when you wanna complain. 🙂
