CROTCHETY, CONTINUED: irritations:
People texting other people while talking to me--right in front of me--they don't even try to conceal it!
Also, they must not realize that I can hear them typing away on the computer at home while they are supposed to be talking to me on the telephone!
Addressing me by my first name before I have given permission. My doctor calls me "Ms. Raypole" and I call her "Doctor"; at our first meeting, she actually asked me which I would prefer. I like formality and distance!
Parents allowing their children to run wild in stores. Today, a girl was running and she brushed me and I yelled, "Did you say EXCUSE ME?"
At Aldi's it is clearly marked that "sitting, standing, and walking" is NOT permitted on the counters where groceries are sacked. PARENTS, why are you so peeved when I tell you?
If I hear another person say, "NO PROBLEM" in a situation where there is obviously NO problem, I am going to scream! An example: In a restaurant, I had no eating utensils at my place and as the waitress drifted by, I said, "May I have my silverware?" Her answer: "NO PROBLEM." Of course, it should be NO problem as I was supposed to have my damned eating utensils!
