Random Tuesday Thoughts

I would definitely describe myself as a patient person.  If someone is driving slow in front of me I usually just slow down as well unless I’m late for something.  I also have no problem waiting in lines at the grocery store, at the gas station or even the bank.  It doesn’t bug me like it does most people.  Maybe its because I’m genuinely a laid back person.  But there is one thing that absolutely infuriates me, when you are in a large crowd and everyone is walking forward and the one person that is in front of you STOPS.  Why do they do this?  Do they not see or notice that they are in a people highway and that the proper thing to do is to pull out of traffic if they need to stop?  I wouldn’t slam on the brakes on the 5 freeway to have a look at the store next to the highway, why is this any different?  I think I need to start issuing tickets.


What is it about MTV crap television shows that suck me in like heroine?  Its like I know deep down inside that I am way too old for this crappy television programming, however I just can’t seem to take it out of my DVR.  Yes I do know who LC, Snookie and bad girl Kristin are.  It’s such terrible TV that I wont let my 12 year old watch it, but I keep going back for more.  What’s even worse is I find myself talking about them to some of my friends as if I actually know them!  It drives my husband crazy, if there’s one surefire way to get him to leave the room, its to put an episode of the Hills on.


My son’s room is ALWAYS messy.  I’m not sure what I am doing wrong.  We have tried everything except cleaning it ourselves.  In fact, when he went away for the weekend about 6 months ago we gutted the room so he could start from scratch.  I don’t understand why its so hard to put something away.  If it has a place, put it back.  I was a very messy girl, I remember making trails from the door to my bed so my mom could tuck me in at night, I can only hope he will outgrow it like I did.

  1. I especially hate it when people do that stopping thing in the grocery store. You know what I mean, stopping the cart and leaving it in the middle of the aisle so no one can go around them. Drives me nuts. And then I don’t want to be a bitch, so I’ll stand there like an idiot for what is probably too long, until they finally move, or I’ll finally say a polite little “Excuse me.”. I should be more assertive.

  2. You would not have done well riding the metro every day. Especially during tourist season. CLUELESS out-of-towners constantly stop and gather at the bottom of the escalator, forcing people to barrel through them. And they think it’s rude for others to push. What else can you do when more people are coming up behind you?

  3. I totally hate that when people stop right in front of you, especially for no reason … I mean, if they’re having a heart attack or something, I totally get it, but usually they’re just fumbling with their iPhone. On a related note, how about those people who abandon their carts in the middle of an aisle at Costco so they can go get a freaking cracker with butter on it and then you’re stuck while they wait for the super crabby sample lady to put it in a little paper cup? Oooohhhh, that makes me crazy …

    Great site … it’s my first visit!

    p.s. Love the “people highway.”
