There is too much Valium in my brain so I’m staggering under the stress of coming up with something original to discuss in this blog posting. Until I get rid of these stupid back spasms I have to live with the brain fog from Valium. So off to my random blog idea generator which suggested I should discuss a few things that annoy me. That sounded like fun so let’s begin.
Have you ever been in a grocery store line and the little old lady in front of you decides to pay her bill with cash and exact change – and she doesn’t even get out her wallet until everything is tallied and packaged? And then she grabs one of those ugly little rubber change thingies you push and pull until they open? Twenty minutes later she’s gone and your blood pressure has risen to stroke level. The only worse one is the person who waits until everything is done and THEN opens her purse to extract her checkbook and write her check. And to add insult to injury refuses to give said check to the cashier until she enters it into her little precious checkbook register. Gah. I hate those women and I always hope that they get to the middle of the parking lot and their plastic bags break. (sorry Lord, I don’t really mean it.) yes I do, yes I do, yes I do.
I’m in a major book store the other day and as I’m checking out (understand that I have been standing in line for a long time and my back is killing me) the clerk stops my purchase and answers the phone and begins to research a book for another customer. I looked over the counter at her and said put the phone down or I will rip this credit card swiping machine right out of your counter and beat you with it. Truly. How annoying. She put the person on hold and finished my purchase and then had the audacity to wish me a pleasant day. I imagine I’m now on tape and part of their Security Training Session.
A television show I’ve actually patiently waited a week to watch is pre-empted because President Obama wants to show off his teleprompter skills once again. Gah.
What else is annoying? March Madness. ‘Nuff said.
You want more annoying? I”m not that fond of the saying “if life hands you lemons, make lemonade” – I think you should find an annoying person at your office with paper cuts and squeeze the daylights outta those lemons.
The past few days my Twitter has gone Tango Uniform on me and I’ve lost my Tweetdeck too several times. Now, this is serious stuff coz if I miss one round of SmartA$$ w/my tweeps due to Twitter technology, I’m telling you heads will roll. That’s annoying.
Okay – this isn’t just annoying – this is probably getting tedious for you so I’ll stop now. Tomorrow I promise to back off on the Valium and see if my brain can come up with something original.
