Advantages Maybe you'll read this and change your ways
Disadvantages This gives you emotional blackmail.. eep? :P
Ten things that annoy me? Piece of cake, I said before attempting to write this piece. Then I realised just how difficult it is to pick *only* ten... still, here’s my best attempt at what really gets on my nerves.10. Being 18.
9. People who say it was much better when…
Yes, it was much better then. Fair enough, you were treated differently. Unfortunately, back then is exactly that... back then. Please, PLEASE, stop telling me how you could get so much change. I’m a student, I can’t even remember what change looks like! And why oh why will people go on and on about corporal punishment (oh, if they’d given you a good hiding you’d have turned out much better, you need to learn some respect you cheeky whippersnapper) and yet complain that’s there’s more violence on the streets… so it’s okay in your own home? Jeez...
An interesting one, but... if you’ve ever done shop work, you’ll agree. I’m not blaming all customers, just the ones who seem to think the world revolves around them. It’s not my fault if something's out of stock, or if your product broke and you lost the receipt. Really, I’m not collaborating with a secret mafia to steal your batteries and receipts at night. And fair enough if your child pulls some toys off their shelf, we expect that. But you ought to know better now. Remember we’re people too, and if you’re just going to rant at us for something out of our control, go shout at a pillow. You’ll feel better, and we won’t have to put up with it. Niceness begets niceness.
5. Internet grooming
Let me say now, I hate every single one of these perverts who tries this, but for this rant I’m aiming at the parents. You *seriously* let your child go on random chat rooms with no supervision, haven’t warned them not to meet anyone they talk to online whilst unsupervised, and don’t check their emails/chat logs to be sure? Sure, they are a problem, so let your children know. It doesn’t matter how you say it, bad men or criminals, but for god’s sake tell them and make sure they’re safe. You wouldn’t let them chat with a dirty old man in the street, so why online?
3. The Upper Class
Keep the rich rich, and the poor poor ‘ay? I don’t think so; we need a Robin Hood to sort out this lot. If you’re so rich that you can afford to buy a thousand pound dog house for poochy, but can’t give a few quid to someone who needs it (like me… just kidding :P) then quite frankly I consider you one of the poorest people in the world. Money does not buy happiness, something which is very true. You can’t take it with you, it’s not going to do much sitting in a bank, and if you could make someone smile it’s always worth it. Give generously and the rewards are always far greater, cause there’s no price on a friend. (Aww...)
Aaand number one on my most annoying things…
1. Public toilets.
Ugh. Ugh, ick and bleuch. I mean really, what the hell happens to perfectly normal people, when they enter a public loo, which reverts them to the stage of animals. Or worse, cats and dogs can be trained not to make that much mess; they just can’t turn the handle. I have yet to be in a public toilet that doesn’t resemble a medieval torture chamber. The lovely notes to future inmates... users on the walls, the faeces smeared floor, the lovely yellow patterns everywhere. Here’s what I advise. Everyone take out a pen, and get some paper and go to the loo in your own home. Write down exactly what you do, and then stick it to your forehead with a large nail and plenty of duct tape. Whenever you’re out and feel the need, stare ahead and read. Maybe, just maybe, we can stop this problem. I hope.
