Thanksgiving was both fun and a disaster and a half. My Aunt Jan lives up in Washington state, and she came up with the wonderful idea to have Thanksgiving at my parent's new house up there (oh yeah, they bought a house within 20 minutes of Aunt Jan a few months ago; they're trying to rent it out until they can move up). If we went, we would be spending Thanksgiving with Aunt Jan and cousin Kirian for the first time in nearly a decade. I love them both dearly, so it sounds fun, right?

I hope all of you had a far better Thanksgiving break than I did!

Drivers:
-Go the speed limit, preferably the speed of traffic. In the same vein, don't drive 25 mph in a 40 zone just because your turn is in a block or two.
-Don't merge in front of someone going 10 mph slower, it's effing annoying, and it's dangerous.
-Please, be careful when you turn right on a red light. I've nearly gotten hit many times both as a pedestrian and a driver with the right-of-way.
-
If I see you coming up behind me, I'll do my best to get out of your way, but if you tailgate me, I WILL go slower just to piss you off.
-For god's sake, always look for pedestrians when you approach an intersection or a driveway. I'm sick and tired of nearly getting killed.

Customers:
-Don't arrive at a store just a little before closing and spend an hour or two browsing. As someone who has worked 8-hour days in retail, I can tell you, the employees just want to go home. They're tired and their feet are sore from standing all day, and they absolutely hate you for keeping them on their feet at work for another hour past the end of their shift.
-Don't arrive at a place of business after they close and demand that they open just for you. Employees are leaving, and the registers are already down. It would take more work than it's worth to start everything back up again just to try to please an ungrateful customer.
-DoggieTown customers specifically: I have had no training in the front office and I cannot release your dog to you after closing, no matter how many times you ask. Please don't make up stories about how the girl in the office didn't correct you when you said you'd pick up your dog at 6pm when we close at 5. If you're a regular customer, you know the hours. If you're going to be late, call and we'll do our best to accommodate you.
-If an employee goes out of their way to help you or does an especially good job, feel free to offer a tip. It really makes their day. Just a few dollars is often like another half hour of work. Bare minimum, say thank you. It makes them feel appreciated even if it's only courtesy.

Coworkers:
-Get the stick out of your collective ass.
-Do your damn jobs.

  • Sticky. Being sticky makes me freak out and rub/wash my hands/shoes/whatever until all the yucky stickiness is gone.
  • Being woken up before I want to. My ears are so damn sensitive when I'm sleeping, the sound of people walking across the room (read: scuffing their feet on the carpet) wakes me up. It's the most annoying thing ever and it ruins my sleep.
  • People who make agreements/promises and fail to keep them even once. 
  • People who are so immature as to ignore their alarm clocks and then wake me up at 6 am for a ride to work.
  • Messy kitchens. Ugh. Messy rooms in general, but messy kitchens especially. 
  • Groups of people who walk 3-5 abreast down the sidewalk and refuse to move to the side to let someone pass, even when they obviously see the other person.
  • People who have absolutely no respect for their parents and treat them like crap.
  • UCI bookstore and their ridiculous prices and crappy buyback prices. $20 for a $160 book??? 
  • People who use my private stuff without asking just because it's there (ex: my speakers for my laptop/ipod)
  • People who borrow my stuff and then fail to return it or return it in bad condition. (My roommate is convinced that one of MY books (my mom's, actually) is HER grandmothers. It's not.)

I'm sure there's a million other things, but I don't feel like thinking about them right now. See why I'm so annoyed and stressed out all the time? This really needs to stop.
