Things that just need to stop.

The scrunchie.  Granted, this probably HAS stopped everywhere but around government buildings and certain parts of the country that still rely on analog cellular signals, but still.  I saw three lovely offenders this morning, two on the metro and one disturbingly close to my office.  Seriously, the regular thread-covered elastic looks MUCH better.  And a work-appropriate ponytail should be gathered as close to the top of the neck as possible, just FYI.

I do not ever, EVER, need to see Commando Guy in baggy shorts on the leg press machine again, ever.  Please think about the day’s routine prior to selecting your workout wardrobe.

High HEELS.  HEEEEEEEELS.  Not high heals.  NEVER high heals.  High HEELS.

Please, PLEASE stop relying so heavily on spell check.  It will not catch that mistake, because “heals” is an actual word referring to what happens when a wound undergoes the process that makes it not a wound anymore.  Also in this category – palate/pallet/palette, which are not interchangeable, but apply to food/warehouse/color, respectively. 

Today’s halitosis contest on the Metro?  Really doesn’t need to happen again.  Toothbrushes can be very inexpensive.  So are Altoids.  Though if your goal is the return of the pomander, well-played, sirs.

This entry brought to you by the return of insomnia, a dash of food allergy, and a massive case of crankypants.  Also, when every single last banana in the store is inedibly green AND my milk inexplicably goes bad before the expiration date, I become kind of a jerk.

    How about their/they’re/there. UGH.

    And people who write “calender”

    Or when you’re sitting at the window in the bus/metro and when you need to leave the person doesn’t get up but just slides their leg around so that you have to squish by and your ass is on their face?

    Or people who don’t get up for the elderly or pregnant woman, and act like they’re so concentrated in their book and didn’t see the person standing there?

    Or people who let the door slam behind them, instead of holding it for the person who’s coming behind them?

    Or strawberries that get moldy after 2 days in the fridge?

    Or people who pull up to a building and honk their horn — dude, call your friend and tell them to come down, have some consideration and don’t wake the whole building up with your announcement!

    Ok, I better stop. I have a list of things, but I’m getting annoyed just by typing this up.
