As I get older it has become very apparent that more and more things are starting to annoy me more than ever. The sad part is I know that many of these things probably shouldn’t but nevertheless, they do. I thought I would start a new series of posts outlining some of the things that just drive me crazy lately. See either of these situations makes you scratch your head and say, “Are you kidding me”.
1) Tons of empty seats, but the person sits right next to me
I went to the Cobb Theater this weekend to catch a matinee. There were literally rows and rows and rows of empty seats in the theater when the movie started. However, a couple walks in during the previews and with all the choice seating available to them, they decide it best to sit right next to me. I don’t get what people are thinking when they do this. Frankly, it’s creepy.
2) Did you find everything you were looking for?
It annoys me when I get to the register and a sales cashier asks me, “Did you find everything you were looking for?” It takes every fiber within my being to resist the urge to say, “Obviously I did, otherwise would I be standing in line to pay? Wouldn’t I still be shopping if I was looking for something else?” I just don’t get this question. Attention sales cashiers: If I still am looking for something, I would be shopping rather than twiddling my thumbs standing in line.
These are just a few of the everyday situations I run into that aggravate me. Now I know I should not let such stupid little things aggravate me, but I can’t help it. What aggravates you? Take a moment and share some of the more annoying things you encounter everyday.
