Pet Peeves & Anger Management

The graphic doesn’t really have much to do with the post but I liked it.

One of the last conversations I had with my mother, I was complaining about something and she declared one I was getting old and two I was grumpy, annoyingly she had a point LOL.

I’m a bit impatient and overly blessed I think with common sense, but there are seemingly forces at work that just make me want to go:


In no particular order:

* Why on busy shopping days does my local supermarket (Tescos) that has 50 checkouts do they only have 12 open, thus making us wait.

* Why have only “Cash Only” checkouts do they accept card payments agin making me wait, and don’t even get me started on the 8 items or less checkout, and yes I have counted and complained (that was a bad day)

* Why at the hole in the wall (ATM) do people decide to do all their banking and even worse as happened on Saturday make a phone call ( yes I had a very vocal discussion about that too)

* Mobile phones, why am I forced to listen to other people’s phone calls, and further to that when talking to someone they are always checking their phone that not rude.

* When you go into any shop the sales assistants never seem to know where anything is and your made to feel as though your interrupting their day.

* Another shop thing why wait in a queue and not have your purse ready, why again make people wait whilst you search the black hole that is your bag.

* Lateness I can’t even be coherent about this,  suffice to say I wait 10 minutes and if you’re not there and haven’t informed me that your running late I’ll leave, additionally this is the time to use your mobile phone.

* Neighbours mine watched me put my washing out on the line ..then went and lit a bonfire..seriously I could have wrapped him in a sheet and buried him..I was in the right place garden, get the picture

* Automated messages and a series of buttons to press but not enough time to do it.

* Call centers people in a far away land with cups attached to string trying to decipher your complaint, and you at the other end losing the will to live.

* Junk Mail enuff said

* Computer support I can’t even go there it’s too painful

* Golf umbrellas, people you can take an eye out with those things they are designed for the Golf course.

* Is it possible to get just a cup of coffee..sorry not a fan of trendy coffee shops and have never been in a Starbucks.

* Why is it with like 500 TV channels you can’t find anything to watch and in the UK we have to have a TV license to legally watch television.

* Noisy children and parents who are oblivious

That’ll do for now.

I returned to this blog in September 2014, after a 2 year absence, due to depressive illness and homelessness. This journey charts the rocky road to recovery and my feelings about it, and getting a home together after losing everything, this too has been a rocky rocky, both things connected on many levels, but separate at the same time.

    I even wait just 15 minutes for doctors and then tell the staff I won’t wait any longer and walk out. I also have a great story about looking for something in a store and being told they “probably don’t have it,” then finding it on my own and going back to tell the clerk and she just shrugged. I said, “You don’t give a rat’s ass, do you?” And she had the gall to say “no.” Grrrr. I hate rotten customer service. If you don’t want the job, quit! There are thousands of out-of-work people who would be happy to have it. Loved your rants!


    • Given that my career was in hospitality customer service is amust and it drives me nuts, that it’s not done as routine.

      I have so many more thins that just irk me but feared I’d be here all night..LOL.

      But your riht common sense just doesn’t prevail..send em to judge Judy..
