5 things that ANNOY me... are you on here?
I believe Social Media is the new "venting machine" ... hey if its gonna use me, I'm going to use it too. And its come in handy plenty of times. Those times when people, things, or circumstances annoy the expletive out of me and I can't yell like a madwoman because I'm in line at the grocery store or at work.
And God knows I don't want to get the nickname "Drama Queen" or get arrested at McDonalds because I was one minute late to the breakfast menu and screamed at the cashier. So sometimes I take to twitter or Facebook or in this case my blog to express my inner frustrations, changing peoples names so I don't get in trouble. But, you probably share some of these annoyances too.... and I'm pretty sure you've also tweeted about it.
1. People behind me in line at the Grocery store being nosy and .....commenting on what's in my shopping cart. Hey weird person I don't care if you also "enjoy" the same kind of toilet paper. Come'on old guy, do you really have to say you also like that flavor of Metamucil too? It's an invasion of privacy for people to check to see what's in your shopping cart and a bigger offense when they make it a conversation piece.
2.Getting GAS. I don't mean the digestive kind, but thats kinda frustrating too. I mean the kind that you put in your car. I mean, gosh, I just filled you up last week and your on empty again! My car guzzles gas like if it were a ravenously hungry teenager. Not only are gas prices skyrocketing, but I'm always on EMPTY at the most inconvenient times, like when I'm running late, or dressed in heels and a cocktail dress and the last thing I want to do is walk to the Gas Station cashier to "filler up".
3.Getting dissed after a nice smile and a hello! This happens a lot in my "professional" world. I mean, I don't want my work life to be like high-school all over again, with some people having their noses stuck in the air and acting to "cool" to acknowledge a warm smile and hello! I will not stop saying hi, but if you ignore me, then I will probably tweet about it.
4.Wrong Drive-Thru Orders I think this is the ultimate revenge that people that work at the drive thru have on the rest of society. They are probably a little bitter that they're stuck behind a hot, cramped window and have to chuck hamburgers and shakes at people all day long, so the jokes on us when we get home only to realize they put the wrong order in your bag. So, its unlikely you will get in your car and drive all the way back so they can fix it. This has happened to me so many times, that I got into the habit of checking what's in my bag before I pull away. One time, I kid you not, my hashbrown was half-eaten with clear teeth impressions! Yuck! Its particularly annoying when you've been specifically craving that one salad, or sandwich and you get home to a sandwich you can't stand.
5.IGNORING MY EMAIL. Okay, if Im emailing you its probably something you should read and reply to. I mean nowadays writing an email is equivalent to writing a novel. We are so used to short, small quips on twitter and facebook to check in with our friends, that if I email you, its probably very important. So write me back!
