Let It All Out

There are days when I find myself complaining a lot.

Today is one of those days.

One of those days when nothing seems to go right. Not that something awful happened, just nothing went exactly as planned.

Yesterday I made an appointment for acupuncture. I spoke with the clinic owner, asked if he took my insurance and made an appointment for today. The procedure went ok. Afterwards I was told that I had to pay $25 because my insurance doesn't cover acupuncture. Umm... but my insurance does in fact cover acupuncture. Turns out that the clinic does take my insurance for other things but they are not contracted for acupuncture. So why did the owner tell me that he took my insurance when I asked about an acupuncture appointment???

I stopped by the store on my way home. I needed milk and wanted to get a few of the sale items. They were out of stock of some of the sale items and I forgot to get the milk.

I hate when I'm at the store looking at something on the shelf and a few minutes later I look up and realize that someone is waiting for me to move out of the way. Don't they know that I don't have eyes in the back of my head?? Why can't people say "excuse me" anymore?? Or at least do a pretend cough so that I know they are waiting for me to move. Am I the only who hates that? Does everyone else just keep a lookout for people that may want to get past you in the grocery store aisle?? I feel like I need to yell "cover me" whenever I stoop down to check the price on the lower shelf.

I hate when someone stops at an intersection and they don't have a stop sign. There is one intersection in the grocery store parking lot that is like this. 2 ways have a stop sign and the other 2 do not. Those 2 lanes should not stop at the intersection. It messes everything up when one of those 2 lanes stops. No one knows what to do at that point. Since it becomes a free-for-all, next time I may just run them over.

A bird left me a present on my car. On my car door handle. Thanks, birdie.

After my adventures at the acupuncturist and the store and the parking lot, I ordered my favorite sandwich from this wonderful Vietnamese restaurant near my house. Warm tofu on delicious bread.... Yum! I picked it up and brought it home. I opened it. I found beef inside. I ordered tofu. I'm a vegetarian.

I think it may be a conspiracy.

I'm supposed to go to chess club soon. I wonder who will be out to bug me there.

Anyone want to let it all out and share your pet peeves? I promise not to tell ;)

After a day like that, I think I'd retreat to bed.

My pet peeve this week is the parents who can't seem to follow the drop-off and pick-up procedures at school. How hard is it? Wait in line for your turn. Push your kids out of the car or gather them in. Leave.

And yet, grown-ups cut in line. They spend ages talking to their kids blocking the lane, they lean out to talk to teachers.

One of these days, I'm going to lose my mind and my reputation for being slightly insane will be cemented.

Ugh! Once those sort of days get rolling, like a snowball, they just keep collecting junk as they go...

Today someone ran a red light. I was just about to push on the gas, when something made me look to the right...and I'm so glad I did or I'd be in a different place right now.

Yes - there should be clearly posted grocery aisle etiquette and a polite (and quiet) "excuse me" works for me when I'm needing to get past the person perusing the shelves in front of me (and always in front of the exact product I need to grab) :)

Hope you weren't pushing your luck going to chess club this evening, Cookie :)

Sorry you had one of those days.

Another pet peeve is ppl who talk really loud on cell phones. Ugg!! Just cuz you can't hear doesn't mean I can't hear. I know how to work my volume.
