donut man

Great. As if it weren't enough that the Daylight Donut lady frequently shows up with a box of glazed, we now have someone bringing blueberry cake and sprinkles. Are these people out to sabotage me?

Parking lots

Why is it that people walk down the middle of the aisles in parking lots? This is especially annoying as you are out for Christmas. The place is already packed, and as you are either frantically trying to find a place or frantically trying to exit the damned mall, some asshole is walking right down the middle like they own the place and at a very meandering pace. This act of total self absorption forces the driver to go less than one mile per hour and blocks up the whole freaking lot.

I hate those people. They piss me off.

F You

Just in case you have never worked in customer service...

Here's a tip. Regardless of how angry you are about a situation, don't take it out on the person who's trying to help you. Because if you tell them to fuck off even one time, I know, it's surprising, they are probably not going to do whatever it is you are wanting them to do. It's much easier if you ask really nice and with a smile.

I don't know about everyone else, but I know when I get phone calls like I did today, where someone tells me to fuck off and have a nice fucking day and then asks me to do something for them, I'm going to be mad. And since I can't say fuck off back, all I can do is refuse to do whatever that person is asking. It's my own special way of saying fuck you. Brings me a sick sense of pleasure.

Rain Boots

I love rain boots. They protect my pants and fancy shoes and keep them from getting wet and mildewy. But really, when it's not raining, and there is no forecast for rain, I do not wear them. And nobody else should either. They are not a fashion accessory. It is true, they are cute and in funky patterns. BUT that does not mean they should be worn as a regular boot.

They are for rainy days people! COME ON!

Do you ver wake up in the morning and think, "if I had died during the night, at the very least, I wouldn't have to go to work today." ??? I do. I hate those fucking mornings. They suck.

Silver Dollar City

Have you ever been to Silver Dollar City? Well, I have, but it hasn't been since I was 8. I remember it being fun, but not the very best time I had ever had. For those who don't know, it is a country themed amusement park with rides and shops. They have a Christmas celebration, which I was really looking forward to attending this year. My husband and I were going to drive up to Branson, MO and go to kick off our holiday season.

Only, believe it or not, Richard started looking at tickets, and they're $50! Who do they think they are, Disney World? I mean, come on! I don't pay $50 to get into Six Flags, and I guarantee you the rides there are better than those at Silver Dollar City. In fact, I think Silver Dollar City only showed like ten rides, half of which are for kids (which I don't have). Hopefully the country ambiance is worth it, but I'll never know, because I'm not paying $50 to find out.

Ruined my whole holiday kick off plans! Makes me mad.

Facial Scrub

I use St. Ives Apricot Facial Scrub. I love it. I wash my face with it every night, even though it says you are only supposed to use it sporadically. I have one in the shower and one by my sink. Long story short, I've been wondering where the one in the shower has been disappearing to. It ran out twice as fast as it usually does, and I was perplexed. Have I been using more than I had in the past?

So, two nights ago, my husband says, "we're almost out of facial scrub." And I say, "WE? That's my facial scrub. Why are you using my facial scrub?" Alas, the mystery has been solved. Hazards of being married, I guess. Your husband thinks what's yours is his.

Dillhole had to go and buy US more facial scrub.

People with kids

Now, if you're a "people with kids," I apologize if I offend you. BUT this really pissed me off.
I had one of my staff call in last night, and so I had to stay to run the show, and I thought I wasn't going to be able to make it to my class. Now, if you follow my blog, you know that my class has an attendance policy. AND I've already missed my 3 classes, so this one would be my 4th.

I know that there is a girl in my class who has missed more than 3 classes, and I overheard her saying last week that she thought he was really cool, because he told her that he understood her having to do stuff with her kids, because he has kids himself. So, I'm calling, thinking, no big deal--he'll let me skip. I even offer to write an extra little paper or do a little project additional. But instead, this is what he says...

NO. The man says NO. He said he understood and appreciated my situation, but he could not make exceptions on his policy for anyone, or it just caused issues. I didn't want to say I suspected he had already made exceptions for someone in the class, because I had overheard and may have gotten the conversation wrong. So, last night when I went to class, I asked her if it was in fact true. And she confirmed that he was very easy going and told her that it was no problem if she needed to miss class due to her kids' activities.

WTF? Why should I be penalized because I don't have kids. This has always annoyed the fuck out of me. People have to stay home and watch Oprah with their sick kids while I cover their shifts. People have to leave work early to pick up their kids or go to their kids' Christmas plays or take their kids' on field trips. And then if I have to take my dog to the vet during work hours, people look at me like I've grown two heads. Well, excuse the hell out of me that you've been gone 17 times this year to kid functions, and I need to take an afternoon to make sure my dog has his shots.

I'm not pissed at the people who have kids, but I am pissed at the people who make exceptions for people who have kids, and the people who do not. Like Dr. Springer. He's an a-hole.

Here is what I cannot figure out. What in the hell are people doing in those little boxes? Do you get in there and think, "gee, who am I going to vote for?" Do you not know that before you go to vote, because that's just a scary thought. Now, I understand you may have to read some of the state votes on the other sheet, but again, if you are going to vote, and vote sensibly, you may have wanted to study up on the pros and cons of that BEFORE you get into the booth.

This would make the whole voting process go lots faster, and it wouldn't piss me off so bad when I'm standing in line for an effing hour trying to wait my turn to go and getting ants in my pants because I have to be at work at 8 and it's 7:30.

Voting retards.

daylight savings time

I tend to wake up when the sun comes up. It peeps in through my blinds and through my thin eyelids, and really annoys me. Which means, usually I am up around 7 AM, with no alarm clock. But when we fall back an hour, I am up around 6 AM with no alarm clock. This gives me a whole extra hour when I do nothing but lay in bed and try to fall back asleep until 7, when I actually have to get up for work. You would think I might use my extra hour to get up off my fat lazy ass and work out, but I hate working out in the morning, so instead I just count backward from 100 hoping I doze back off. Which just pisses me off, because it's wasted sleep time.

And it especially pissed me off this morning, seeing as it was a Sunday and all, and I could have slept until noon. Damned sun.
