Grouchy Thursday

Brought to you by: really long and exhausting Wednesday, which left me sleep deprived with a sore back and obliques. Yesterday's exhaustion has carried over into today, which makes me irritable. So now I will list the things that have annoyed me more than normal this week.

1. Dora the Explorer - With her high pitched voice and her Spanglish, this stupid show drives me crazy. Its so dumbed down and has way too many trolls for one show. And all of the songs are extra bad. And annoyingly catchy.

2. Dumb people - Nothing annoys me more at the bank than when I pull up to the drive-up ATM and there's some idiot standing at it, no car in sight. This ATM is made for people to drive up to, not park and then stand at! Walk around the corner to the regular one and get out of my way!

3. Walmart's produce section - I shouldn't have to make an extra trip to a second grocery store just to buy zucchini. Why does Safeway have plenty but you don't even have one? And I'm not going to do all my shopping at Safeway, cause I'm not rich, so I have no choice but to go to Walmart.

4. My new neighbor - Sorry the landlord told you it would be perfectly quiet back here, but its not. If you want 24/7 silence, don't share a wall with someone with two kids. Sorry if you have a mental illness (he seriously does, the landlord told me), but that doesn't mean you can knock on my door and ask me to stop pounding on the wall. No one was pounding on the wall, we were all in the living room. You are crazy and imagining things. And don't open the front door just cause you heard a kid say "come in". Who does that? If you are knocking on a stranger's door you don't just let yourself in. You wait for them to open the door. And don't count on complete silence. This is an old duplex. When you are in the bathroom at the same time as your neighbor, you can hear every drawer open, water turning on, toilet flushing, etc. If you want quiet, move. I've lived here for seven years and I'm not going anywhere.

Now that I've gotten that off my chest, I feel much better. I'm ready to go swimming.

ugh I can't stand grouchy neighbors! When I was living on a higher level floor, I used to get yelled at just for walking around my own apt. I can't believe he had the audacity to just walk into your home! I would have freaked!

HAHA, Dora's voice is annoying!!! When I used to babysit, the kid wanted to watch it all the time. It was far too much for me.

My least favorite thing at the drive up ATM is when there's a line and the person in front of you finally pulls up to the ATM and THEN decides "this would be a good time to search for my ATM card. What were you doing for the past 5 minutes?! I don't care how much you may be into the song on the radio, you can pull out your ATM card.
