I’m so tired you guys. So. very. tired. I know it is Friday and that should be enough to wake me up and get me through the day, but I have a group meeting tonight and that is the LAST thing I want to be doing on a Friday night.
I know that I will be incapable of being productive today and that will make it just crawl by. Really, though, I have spent this entire week doing miscellaneous projects to help out coworkers and every time I have a question it completely stalls the whole thing and I have to wait for the question to be answered before I can continue. Anyway, it is making work just crawl by, which is partially why I am being so negative this week, but what I really want to talk about today is selfish people and how they have been driving me NUTS lately.
First, Wednesday night it was The Enemy. At school there is a limited amount of seating for people that get to campus early, which isn’t usually a problem for me because I get there early in the hopes of getting a good parking spot. This week when I arrived an hour early during which I planned on enjoying my book I walked up to the classroom where there are two couches outside for people where The Enemy had camped out spreading her stuff over all of the couches leaving no room for anybody else to sit forcing everyone else to sit on the floor or stand. Thoughtful of her huh?
In her defense she wasn’t the only person doing this – there were other couches where people had sat down and proceeded to take up multiple seats by spreading their schoolwork out around them. But what really grinds my gears here is that there are tables for that stuff. They obviously don’t want people to sit next to them and are simply being selfish and thoughtless.
Honestly, I would have said something, but I saw somebody I knew and just sat down on the floor next to them. On a completely unrelated note, she misunderstood “quarterly” in class and was convinced that there were four months in a quarter and arguments that that would make a 16 month year did not faze her.
Also selfish are people who decide too late that they need to change lanes, but they can’t get over so they stop until somebody lets them in and causes a traffic jam in the process. Instead, they should just turn around at the next light, but, noooooo, instead, they are lazy and insist on causing a huge backup regardless that it would probably be faster if they just turned around.
Also selfish are people who stop to talk in the middle of the teeny tiny grocery aisles of Trader Joe’s and block my access to the pita chips. Try being aware of the people around you.
I think it is apparent from this rant what kind of mood I’m in this week. Hopefully, it will turn around this weekend – we are going to Ikea tomorrow. Ikea will either completely overwhelm me with all the possibilities or I’ll just be so happy that I’m not at work or studying that I won’t give a shit – let’s all cross our fingers for option number 2.
