I probably shouldn’t rant around Christmas time, but let’s be honest and say I’ve had kind of a rough week so far. I’m hoping to turn it around by sharing some confessions.
Here are some of the things that are driving me crazy this week.
1. Construction on the interstate at midnight.
Usually when I drive home from work around 11:30 PM, the roads are free and I can roam wild like an antelope in a grassy plain, BUT this week there has been construction on the road I take and traffic has been at a complete standstill, making me get home late.
I have no idea what they are doing up there! I would not be surprised to see Godzilla come thundering out of the fog. But it is probably something simple.
2. When people swerve into the left lane and fly around everyone else, despite seeing multiple signs reading “Left 3 lanes closing ahead.”
I kind of want to kill them and their Kia Sorento (no offense to Kia Sorento, it’s an innocent victim here).
3. Slow walkers in the mall.
Get in, do your business, get out. I only went once this week and I hopefully won’t have to go back. There is a mission to accomplish, we don’t have time for your languorous strolling.
4. Stupid people at work.
To be fair, my coworkers are awesome, and I think I work on the best shift. None of them are stupid, but sometimes they do make me lose my mind.
We recently hired this new guy who only works 3 nights a week and this is his second job. Guy cannot remember how anything works, and keeps making mistakes. If he needs a second job, I can’t help but think he should get one that requires less skill.
5. Too much talking.
It’s not obvious when I’m at work, since I enjoy the people at my job and am mostly a very friendly person, but I’m an introvert and sometimes we need quiet time.
Otherwise my brain will stress out, possibly leading to crying and/or a future melt down. So I may want to read a book or something to distract me for a while. It is not an inviting time for people to ask, “What are you reading?” I appreciate the interest, but maybe we could talk later.
