WO: Weekly Obsessions

If you woke up today and thought it was Tuesday, then you and I have at least one thing in common. If you waited for your bus near a mountain of shattered glass thanks to a failed coffee shop robbery, then we’ve got at least TWO things in common!

At the risk of sounding like Jeff Foxworthy’s classic “You might be a redneck” spiel, here are some other highlights of my (our?) day:

  • A phone talker sat behind me for the commute
  • I banged my head while moving seats away from said phone talker
  • I banged my head while putting my sneakers on at my desk
  • I used a shower post-workout that didn’t have soap (the next stall did, thankfully!)
  • I had three separate conference room issues with clueless people
  • A phone talker sat behind me for the commute
  • I answered grammatical questions, then was ignored because the answers weren’t to their liking
  • I got home after a 13-hour day and banged my head on the cabinet door

Aside from needing a helmet, here’s what else I’m tryyyying my damndest to focus on:

  • I’m gainfully employed in a role I love 90% of the time
  • The perks of a shuttle, gym, and shower are priceless
  • Meeting room etiquette basically doesn’t exist
  • I have a home to go to and retreat from loud people on phone calls
  • I’m not the idiot who half-heartedly stole a safe from a coffee shop

There, I feel much better. Don’t you?

  • Adulting
  • Chores
  • Traffic
  • Repeating myself
  • Incompetence
  • The Kardashians
  • Politics
  • Unkind people
  • The patriarchy
  • Meetings
  • Social media
  • The sniffles
  • Garbage people
  • Technology issues
  • Spilled milk

What are some of the pet peeves wearing you down lately? Let’s commiserate!
