    Things that annoy you

    I know this has probably been talked about before but what do you guys think about someone who uses the large handicapped stall in the public bathrooms that doesn't need it and all the other stalls are empty. It annoys the piss out of me literally. Should i even care? Do I have a right to be p-o'd? WHat do you think and add to the list of things that annoy the heck out of you.

    I get annoyed that the public washrooms don't have 2 wheelchair stalls ... or universal design doesn't just make them all bigger.

    These are some of my annoyances right now.

    1. Overpackaging on food and other items. I have made a concentrated effort to make sure everybody who helps out in my apartment is recycling. I am appalled at the amount of cardboard and plastic that has accumulated in my bins in less than 2 weeks. Most of it from food that has unnecessarily been double and triple packaged. Like a bag of cookies not only has a cardboard divider inside but then has the cookies also shrink wrapped in groups of 5. I get that some of it is needed to maintain freshness. But too much is too much.

    2. Renting a dvd that craps out due to a scratch in the middle of watching it. 23 minutes left in Fight Club last night and it stopped playing. And it was the store's only copy.

    3. Neighbours who let their dogs poop and pee in the snow right beside my apartment building's main door to outside. Yeah I know it's a pain to take them away from the buildings when its cold and snowing. But I don't appreciate having to pass by it all when I come and go.

    4. The cable guy. Or maybe I should say the cable company whose policy is "We will be there sometime between 8 am and 8 pm. Please be at home." Actually the window they gave me was noon to 8 pm yesterday to come and fix my cable, which my neighbour somehow managed to slice through trying to install his mini sattelite dish on the outer wall between our units. His cable still works, mine doesn't. Funny how that goes. Anyway it is now 5 pm the next day and still no cable guy. Thankfully some others in the building have not secured their wireless routers, meaning I am able to leech internet off them. But no TV or phone service.

    5. Bladder stones. And a trip to the hospital tomorrow to have them removed.

    Stairs and no lift. I can't visit anybody because of that. I haven't been able to visit my childrens homes from the day they left home.

    Hi Amanda,

    The neighbor who sliced through your cable could have made a temporary fix to it with a knife and some tape. If it was his (or her) TV reception at issue I'm sure the fix would have happened. People.

    Hope you get it fixed soon. I don't know what I'd do without TV!

    Bob.

    I was tempted to be silly, and post "people who pirate off other peoples wireless internet." But I do it at my mom;s sometimes as well.

    Sorry about the bladder stones OJ, that is no fun.

    My big annoyance today is icy sidewalks/driveways. The weather we have had (and ice storm, followed a few days later by snow, and now bitter cold coming in) has made wheeling a mess, with out much chance of it getting any better before next week. I got stuck in my own driveway the other day, and had to get my daughter to rescue me.

    And Bente, now you mention it BOTH of my sons have rented places I can;t get in, unless they carry me up the stairs. I haven;t been in either place. Since the younger one is living w. 5 other male college students, I should count my blessings in that case! My older son is only in his place (2nd story walk up) for another year ..... I told him the next place needs to be accessible, I am sick of visiting in the car in the driveway. The last time we met at a restaurant.

    You know what Bob, I had thought about that. But nobody will attempt the fix for me. My mom said she feared electrocution. And my sister feared getting in trouble from the cable company for messing with the wires. You are right that if my neighbour had cut his own cable, he would have patched it. The cable company promised me somebody will be here at 9 am tomorrow. Plus they are taking $80 off my cable bill for next month. Which I think is not enough. But I am passive and will probably not demand more. Unless the guy doesn't show up tomorrow.

    For somebody who claims not to watch much TV, I am sure missing it tonight I don't know what to do with myself. I think I am a closet TV addict who was in denial. Until my TV got taken away.

    However, being in an anti social mode lately, I am not missing the phone so much. My life is far less complicated when nobody can get in touch with me. (I have a cell phone but don't feel obligated to answer it like I do with my home phone).

    Hope are doing well With all this snow, I am dreaming of Florida lol.

    Have you ever noticed that sometimes you don;t miss something until it is gone. The power went out the other day. At the time I was reading, it was sunny in my kitchen, I didn;t have the light on. When I noticed that the clock was out, suddenly I

    HAD to have a cup of tea, HAD to check my email, HAD turn on the stereo, HAD to have more light ..... etc.

    the stall issue doesnt really affect me because i use a bag and only empty twice a day so its usually at home...i would only care if you were in line for the bathroom and someone ahead of you took that stall.

    i admittedly used the larger stall a lot pre-sci because you can barely move around AB in a regular stall as it is!

    my annoyance today is doorknobs. wretched little useless-to-me piece of equipment. and shitty sidewalks i almost fall out of my chair on.
    Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
