Must-Read: The righteousness in Hobby Lobby’s cause
I need to take a break from the “issues” for the rest of the night, and instead wanted to start a thread where we could rant about non-political stuff, like pet peeves. I know you’ve got a few. Here are some of mine:
— Someone chewing bubble gum with their mouth open: Recently at my work, a gal came in to fill out an application and while I was in the middle of getting her a pen and a clipboard to use, I could hear her smacking her gum. You know the sound. It is unbelieveably annoying. I remember hearing it a lot when I was in high school and to a certain extent college, but people are supposed to grow up beyond that point and now how to chew gum properly, but there people who try to make themselves exceptions, obviously …
— On a similar note, listening to people eat corn on the cob: Ok, I know that’s a little weird, but you can’t help hearing the way people eat when you sit with them, and there really is no graceful way to eat corn on the cob, unless you do what I do – cut the corn off the cob. I mainly do that because I’ve been too paranoid since I had my braces taken off my teeth when I was in high school to eat unsliced apples and corn because I was worried about my teeth going back in the direction I didn’t want them to (yes, I know this is a bit of trivia you’d probably rather not know about your blogstress). In any event, since there really is no ‘quiet’ way of eating corn outside of the one I mentioned – and I know most people don’t do what I do – you can’t really say something to someone about how they eat corn. Nevertheless, it drives me nuts.
— People who have had their turn signal on since 1973. C’mon! Turn the thing bleeping off if you’re not turning in the next few seconds.
— Grocery store customers who have their buggies full of groceries, see the person behind them standing their with one item, and not letting them go ahead. Ok – that’s more of an irritation than a pet peeve, I know. All the same, when my buggy is full, if someone is behind me at the checkout with just a couple of items, I’m going to let them in front of me. I’ve seen cases in other aisles where elderly people that had just one or two items had to stand in line behind someone who had loaded up for the month in groceries. Not right
Ok – your turn
For your listening enjoyment tonight, here’s a song by a Christian group, a song which is pretty much the story of my life right now. It’s a short song – a little over two minutes long, but one that we have probably all been able to identify with at one point or another in our lives. The band is called Wilshire and the song is called “Special.”
1st verse and chorus:
I ride in on a train
Everyday is the same old thing
It’s nine to five
Don’t know if I’m dead or alive
I’m looking for a Halilujah
I need a little something Special
