38: tell us about your pet peeves!

You mean besides Republicans?  And morons?  People who write ‘span’ when they mean ‘spun’.  Span is reach, spun is twirled around.  This drives me bats for some reason.  There are a lot more, but I’m not awake enough yet to think of them.  People who don’t proofread.  People who just end a story in the middle.  No more updates ever.  It’s like reading the only copy of some great work of literature, and someone has torn out the last half of the book and burned it.  Half of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone?  Really?  Not that HP is a great work of literature in that sense, but still, you want to know what happens, darn it.  Write the damn story and then start posting it.  How hard is that?

Okay, so I’m a bit grumpy.  My Marie just left for the last time.  I am so going to miss her.  I was going over how the vacuum works with her for the new person.  It’s pretty sad when you don’t know how your own vacuum works.  Anyway, there’s a plastic something near the bottom, and I asked what that bit down there is, and she reached down and touched the wheel, and said, ‘This is a wheel.”  Smartass.  Lots of laughing going on.  I’m really going to miss that.

A beautiful day again.  No a/c needed.  The cat’s new water and feeding thingies arrived.  I hope she uses them, but if not, they’ll make good planters or something.  🙂 These cats are not Luna:

Cute, huh? 🙂

  1. Pet peeve? Some of the motivational memes really get on my nerves. My daughter’s cat had a little fountain water thing. Loved it. I’m not sure if it’s still working, but she had a lot of fun with it.

    • I forgot about memes. Some of them just drive me bats.
      I can’t tell if she’s drinking the water or not, but I’m giving her wet food as well as dry, so hoping she’s getting enough liquid.

  2. Span and spun? That’s a new one. 😉

    I could be your new Marie cuz my smartassedness has reached new heights of late. I tolerate no fools, it seems. Weird thing? Customers love it! “Can I leave these here and look around some more? No, you can only buy what you can carry.” Really?? It’s a freaking store. LOOK, you fools, LOOK. AND BUY!
