How Annoying Are: People Who Read While Walking!

What's wrong with you?  Don't you have time to read your book, or your newspaper, or your magazine while you're:

A. Home
B. On the subway
C. At your desk
D. Somewhere that's not the sidewalk!!

I hate this.  I'll be walking behind someone who is moving at a glacial pace and it's all because they are nose deep into their book.  Stop reading while walking!  It's hazardous!  You are not paying attention and you could:

A. Get hit by a car.
B. Slam into someone else.
C. Trip over a rock and fall.
D. Meet my fist in your face!

Ok, I'm done now.  I'm sorry if you are one of these people and I have offended you, but you offend me!

Where Did October Go?

Can you believe it's already November 9th?  What happened to September and October?  I vaguely recall the first day of school and candy being on sale for Halloween, but seriously, time has been flying by lately!

Now I'm beginning to see Christmas commercials on TV!  Each year it seems like Christmas starts creeping in earlier and earlier.  Don't get me wrong though, I'm not one of those people that hates the holiday season or hates Christmas festivities, or the anticipation of Christmas.  Quite the contrary in fact.

I LOVE Christmas and everything about it.  I love the music on the radio, I love the trees in the store windows, I love the crispness in the air...

So, I may very well be one of those people who YOU hate because I'm so jolly!  Haha...

Anyway, I still think time is flying by too fast.  Next thing you know I'll be a mom...holy shit.

How Annoying Are: CVS Automated Cashiers

I don't know if this is happening in your community, but here in DC many of the CVS pharmacy stores have replaced actual human beings who used to check you out, with automated cashier machines and they are sooooooooooooooooooooooo annoying!

Why would any store think this was a good decision?  Now the lines are doubly as long as they once were because of user error with these dumb machines.  Also, the machines aren't as fast as we humans are, so let's say you have already swiped your Extra Care card but it hasn't registered this action yet, it will tell you to do so like 3 times!

The other day I heard this guy yell back at the machine for telling him to do something he had already done.  He screamed, "I already did that!"  That actually made me laugh out loud, but at the same time I could really feel his pain.

Lesson here is that you can't replace people with machines because it just doesn't work.  Human beings may have bad days and poor attitudes, but we are never "out of order"...
