News, but not the serious kind
Stuff that annoys me, if I must say so…
Blog Guy, I know you have opinions. What kind of stuff really irritates you?
Gosh, the usual. War, poverty, the Dutch…
No, let me stop you right there. See, those are the big things that you HAVE to mention. But what about little annoying things in the course of your own daily life?
I’m pretty much a live and let live, roll with the punches sort of dude. Great life, no complaints.
Come on, there must be something, Blog Guy. Dig deeper.
I do think those drivers who feel the need to BACK into parking spaces, while I have to wait behind them, those folks should be lined up against a wall and shot.
Now you’re talking, Blog Guy! What else?
Um, the clerk behind the counter at Starbucks who, after I order my coffee, responds with, “Would you like some pastry with that, sir?”
To me, that guy might just as well be saying, “Sir, you seem to be a HUGE idiot who is too STUPID to realize there’s pastry in this showcase here, you oblivious dumbass.”
And how about those aggravating messages from Facebook pointing out that I haven’t been in touch with some friend for a long time. Isn’t that MY business?
This really happened. A friend of mine set up an account for her pet dog, and a couple of weeks ago Facebook reminded me that I should “catch up” with Rex, and that since Rex didn’t seem to have many friends, maybe I should suggest some for him. I thought dogs had their OWN friends!
And what’s up with those obnoxious calls from my doctor, dentist, hair stylist, cable installer, restaurant, etc. “reminding” me I have an appointment or reservation?
I had surgery last month and they called the day before to “remind” me of that. Are a lot of people like, “Oh crap! I was supposed to go under the knife today to have a tumor the size of a honeydew melon removed from my neck! I KNEW I forgot something!”
Er, okay blog guy. That’s enough, thanks for sharing…
Wait! I haven’t even gotten to the University of Wisconsin Alumni Association! They don’t call those people “The Badgers” for nothing! And what about…

Rex, the poor dog who needs more Facebook friends.
