Because I’m feeling crappy….

05 Feb

I am going to dump something that has been bothering me.  Before I go unload, let me tell you why I feel crappy.  I have never got around to shaking off the cold virus I caught last month.  And I never got around to the doctor’s office either.  And now, the people I work with are showing signs of cough and colds too.  But they were the first ones to exhibit symptoms.  I caught it from them and they got better.  Now, they’re getting it again, and I haven’t even gotten any better yet.  I feel there’s another round of cough and colds.  Well, add some sinus congestion to my woes.

Anyway, let me tell you what gets my goat.  I am not a confrontational person so I don’t say anything. Most of the time I just unload it all to my spouse. Isn’t that part of their job anyway, to take in all your sh*t? 

Here’s one:  Littering fools.  Those adults who drive up to the parking lot of a mall, open their car door and let their fastfood trash (wrapper, cups, etc) slide off their car and they drive away.  For Pete’s sake, it wouldn’t take 25 cents worth of gas to drive a few yards to dump their trash in a bin.  Aaargh!

And then there’s this lady who goes to a Vietnamese eatery where there is a cafeteria style dining and lots and lots of prepacked food to go.  She goes over to the station where the prepacked food are located.  Picks up a sealed container.  Looks at it and asks nobody in particular what was in this container.  And before my husband could answer (we were standing next to her), she proceeded to open/unseal the container to take a sniff.  When my husband said its a fritata, she must have not heard of that word before so she goes further in unsealing it.  By this time, I was really pissed off. I told her in my friendliest tone (yeah!), it’s an omelette.  That she understood.  She tried to close the container and return the item to the table.  Now this is my beef.  If an item especially food is sealed, do not open it.  Contamination happens when you do; food poisoning ensues.  If you don’t know what’s int it, ask the people who sells it!  Aaargh!

Here’s another one who goes to Costco and takes a family-sized package of toilet paper; opens it and feels the softness of the paper and leaves the opened package behind.   Are you kidding me?  Who in this united states has not used Costco toilet paper and need to see for oneself its quality?  Aaargh!

Okay I feel a little better now.  So I should go and pop some more sudafed 🙂

    I think you need to know you are not alone. We have plenty of those thoughtless people in this part of the country as well.
    I hope you are soon feeling better.

    OMG, these people are horrible. Over here, we do see some people do it but when you do something bad over here, you got to be careful…lol. Why? Cause our citizens has become online journalists or photograhers, all it takes was a click of the button on the cellphone and snap away the photo or video and send to stomp and it can embarrassed the culprit…lol. I got one in my blog where i video a guy eating in the train..hehehe. (We are not allowed to eat in the train so that the train is clean for all to use.) You take care of your cold and have a nice weekend.

    Those people are so insensitive and annoying. Except for the Costco person, the first two are the types of people who can start epidemics in a community. Disgusting. 😦

    I have the same gripes as you do. I HATE to see people litter – I just don’t get it! Recently a kid got out of the huge Lincoln Navigator parked next to us and dumped all there McDonald’s trash right there on the ground, when just a few yards away, there was a trash can. I called him a Pig and asked him why he did that? He just shrugged his shoulders. His mother was sitting in the front seat and watched him do it and didn’t say anything – she probably told him to do it! ARRRRGHH! I hate having to share this beautiful world with people like that!

    Ah, a fellow ranter 😉 We live across the street from a high school and have to deal with their garbage daily, it looks like a pit around here. I say, if your mama won’t pick up after you, why should I!
