Things That Make Ya Go, Grrrr....

I have power. Nah nah... A storm ripped thru NE Ohio yesterday, 60-70mph winds. Yea, this isn't much to folks use to hangin in hurricanes, but to us this is nuts. Everyone I know is without power. Not me. Mine went out about 20 minutes, and was off/on for about an hour, but other than that I enjoyed a nice evening with fans, TV, and my guy. Emphasis on my guy. A tree fell in our back yard in the woods but no danger for us. Many had it way worse!

Besides that..I'm not always chipper and rosey. I know that's hard to imagine with my sunny disposition. *gleaming smile*. But I am human and things get to me after a while, much like everyone else on this earth.

Such as, grunting/dropping your weights from 4 feet in the gym. Shut the fuck up. This does not make you a man. (yes, I only have witnessed men do this) I like to watch my TV shows, and do my hill intervals in peace. Learn the art of the inner grunt, I'm a woman and I can do it. Weak.

Leaving your TP/or toilet seat cover on the toilet. You took the time to put it there, flush the freaking thing down the tube. I don't appreciate you junking up the toilet anymore than you appreciate others junking up the toilet. And while were on the topic of shitters, stop pissing on the seat. We all know when you use the toilet, you turn around and look in it. Everyone does. So how can you not see the piss you left on the toilet? I rarely hover. Unless it's like a port-o-let, and I don't enjoy sitting in your piss.

Oh, and add to that, people who feel the need to hang around in the bathroom when clearly I'm trying to handle some bizness. Get the hell out! Stop brushing your teeth, and curling your hair, or staring at yourself aimlessly in the mirror forever. Get over yourself and give a girl some privacy!

And, then there's the little thing of getting paid for 80 hours, when there's a holiday, and then receiving an additional 8 "holiday" hours on top of this, making it 8 hours of overtime.

Ok so that last one isn't a complaint for some people but I thought I'd sneak it in there. I wondered forever if I should bring it up. (EDIT) But thanks to a coworker, it turns out they caught on to this fact on Friday's pay day....and I'm going to have to pay all that money back. And...It's a lot of money! Oh don't worry about me, I get 3 checks to pay it back with. As if that makes it any less difficult!

Uh, yea. We might have to cancel Christmas or something.

I'm pretty sure you don't bring the money thing up unless absolutely necessary. And if they do ask - run away as fast as you can. That always works.

I agree with pissing on the seat talk about put me in a bad mood... piss on the seat and then let me sit it in! YUCK!!

ugh, that is a bummer that you have to pay it back... i mean I know it wasn't supposed to be yours to begin with but to get and have to give it back totally sucks!

I'm not a hoverer either. After I saw Dr. Oz say on Oprah that as long as you wipe the seat, put a thing down or at the very least not get anything near your va-jay-jay then you are safe. Who knew that you didn't have to hover for all those years???
