Pet Peeves

These are some things that I find annoying. I think you will too, unless you have the patience of my mum who is super nice to everyone and will hardly bat an eye.

1. Constantly texting in the movie theatre and blinding me with the super bright light from your phone. Well it’s better than talking on the cell which drives me nuts.

2. Giving your partner a minute by minute commentary of the movie oblivious to anyone around you. You may think you’re hilarious, but I paid to watch the movie, not hear you talk.

3. Dashing across the street in the middle of heavy traffic and not at the lights. You may be suicidal but I don’t want to die while swerving and braking trying to avoid you.

4. Hovering over me at a crowded fast food outlet or food court, with your body language demanding that I gobble down my food pronto so that you can have the table.

    Insisting that I should dispense your medication eventhough its a 1000X more potent then the recommended dose because you have a (non medical related I must add) degree from Harvard and you read in some obscure article that it was fantastic for your condition….. and all other patients that think they know more then me (despite my 5 year university degree) because they read it on the internet…

    That happened to me today, since I don’t have a blog, I thought I would use yours to rant 🙂
