it's been a while
But I remembered about this community this weekend and remembered that I had something I wanted to complain about: people who drop you from their friends list for no reason. How about a post just saying you're scaling back your LJ? Or that you're limiting it to "real life" friends or whatever? If someone shuts down the LJ, that's fine, then there's no one left... but when you see them just drop a few people... that annoys me.

not necessarily a fair one
I hate when I expect dinner to be ready at a certain time and then it's not. Like today - I worked late, came home starving just in time for when dinner ordinarily is. Today then happens to be the ONE day that dinner is late. So then I have to have a snack or I'll either pass out or kill someone... and I have now most certainly probably ruined my appetite for dinner. It's no one's fault, but I just had to bitch about it. Probably just Murphy's Law that I'm bitching about.
10 things that piss me off
1. People calling my personal cell phone while I'm on my lunch break to complain about me not doing something at work.
2. People who walk in my office and try to look at my computer screen. (mostly because I'm reading my friends list and don't want to get busted... but it is still rude)
3. People who take up two parking spaces.
4. People who ramble on in interviews, getting lost in tangent after tangent, for 10 minutes rather than just saying, "Yes."
5. Paying $2.50 for a gallon of gas.
6. Unsolicited corrections on my speeling and grammers.
7. Not having sex for a really long time.
8. Not dating for a really long time.
9. Working 70 hours a week and being salaried and only paid for 40.
10. Being in the heat. It is really really hot today.
tagging myself - top ten annoyances
Today I did a "Ten Things That Make Me Happy" tag meme... well, I feel like countering that with a list in here of the top ten things that annoy me.
1. People who cannot follow directions
2. Broken air-conditioning
3. Being interrupted while I'm eating
4. People who act weird and then pretend nothing's wrong
5. People who send/post things going, "I NEVER do chain letters but I just canNOT have bad luck right now!!!" (Yes, I'm guilty of this myself, though.) And I flat out hate those stupid chain emails about luck or advice to women or cute things kids have said. bleh
6. People over the age of 16 that type their emails/blogs like, "omfg, ur like der kewlest chick evah, u no dat, rite? l8r!!" Ughhhhhhhhhh. This scares me for the future of writing in our country... well, and it just plain ol' gets on my nerves.
7. Food comas at work (damn chicken parm samich - you are soooo tasty but evil.)
9. Alarm clocks
10. People who feel the need to reply "thanks" or "okay" to every single email they get.
And... scene. This isn't getting tags, but if anyone reads this and wants to post a complaint list, go for it. Current Mood: sleepy

Okay, I had to pay $160 in NJ state tax. Yesterday I got a $75 "renter's refund" (even though I don't pay my parents rent, we say I do so that I don't get even more slammed w/taxes... but w/the bills I help pay, it's kinda like rent... sure). Okay, but so I paid out $160 and got back $75? Could I not just have been billed for $85 and cut out the extra work here? Geez. Current Mood: exasperated

I need an apple corer/slicer at work... I'm tired of trying to cut up apples with plastic knives. I just make a big ol' mess and get annoyed.
But, mm, it's still good.

It's 3:17 and Scott is MIA...and I'm annoyed with this because we just had a wonderful night last night and now he is missing....and I can't help but feel angry because he KNOWS how I'm waiting to chat with him right now...and if something didn't actually happen, then I'm pissed.....and if something did happen...then I'm worried! Current Mood: annoyed
I hate my brain
I have worried myself into a stress headache today. I have spent so much mental energy today on hating myself (for gym/diet slacking), worrying about moving for grad school, wondering why I'm even going to grad school, what kind of job I'm going to have when I get there... that I've given myself a headache.
And the salad I have for lunch is gross so now I don't want it. If it came w/less dressing, I'd be loving it... but instead it's turning my stomach.
I'm feeling PMS-y moody... without it being PMS time. Stupid moodiness.
shake, rattle, and roll...
I have overestimated the amount of caffeination I need today... and now I have the shakes. I seriously could barely get out of bed this morning, could barely maintain a conversation even after the first coffee... now on the 2nd and I'm over-charged.
I'm sorting my filing... and I hate filing... and shaking makes it worse.
My coworker Erin is out sick today and I'm her back-up... so I have to take all her calls and the appt she has coming in at 2pm. Her people are needy and high maintenance... and I'm teetering between a cranky mood and a good mood today... trying to push myself over to good... and hoping her people don't push me in the other direction.
Oh, and my right eye is twitching... it's annoying the bejeezers outta me. Current Mood: jittery

Yup... that is about right...
The air conditioner isn't working in the office again and I have a meeting in 10 minutes.... oh, and the employee who was supposed to be here 20 minutes ago so that I could brief him on what he needs to know prior to the meeting isn't here yet... gulp.
My best friend's girlfriend IMs me and then has nothing interesting to say. Well, even in person she doesn't always have something interesting to say. It's to the point where I want to have an away message up constantly if I see she's online just so she leaves me alone.
She took this week off of work to pack for moving. Most people I know manage to pack in the evenings and on the weekends, maybe taking off 2-3 days for the big finish and then to get settled into their new place. In fact, don't more people take time off for getting settled into the new place than getting out of the old one? She's been packing for over two days now and told me she's so proud, she's got 6 boxes packed. 6? In over two days? Should have been 6 by noon on the first day of packing. Arrrrrgh. She annoys me sooooo much. Current Mood: annoyed

and one more thing...
The human resources person refused to give me two employee's personnel files today... which I needed to determine if they have the credentials they need for their positions... I know that there is confidential information in there... but I already know how much they make... and if they been written up... guess what? _I'M_ the one who wrote the disciplinary action... and if they didn't pass their drug screen... take a wild guess at who answered the phone call from Labcorp...
I'm so tired of being responsible for things in which I'm not given access too. If they want me to coordinate a program, they need to treat me like a program coordinator. I hate locks and I hate being told "no".
Ok, I'm done.
My employers are trying to kill me. They have gotten rid of (fired, laid off, transferred) all of the other supervisors and coordinators except for me ( there used to be 6 of us) and I'm being left to hire and train people with only an absent supervisor to assist me. WTF??? It is impossible and I am working 10 to 12 hours a day and still can't keep up.
Even though I'm making payments on an old line of credit exactly like they are billing me... and on time, they are trying to send me to small claims court to get me to pay off the entirety of the loan at one time... which isn't possible for me to do.
I hate it when I go out with someone and they think that if we have sex, it is an open invitation to stay over... because it isn't. I work to pay for my house all by myself... I bought those sheets yo' naked ass is sitting on... don't get comfortable unless I ask you to stay.
And it is hot as hey-el outside. I think the news dude said 101 degrees... 105 heat index. I have to go drive 45 minutes to another office in a few minutes and it will take my car 15 minutes to cool down and I hate getting all sticky and hot. Yuck!
friggin Sallie Mae
I don't know wtf is going on w/my student loans. I seem to apparantly owe not only my first born, but also my second and third to the good people that funded all the time I spent goofing off at Berg and then the time I spent correcting that at NYU before I had tuition remission. I owe over $50k. With interest, it's close to $100k that I'll pay back. Fine, I'm in hock for life, I guess I have to just suck that up and deal... but I cannot make heads or tails of what I'm supposed to pay when. I'm trying to reconsolidate AND put off paying until after grad school. One day it says I owe almost $800/mth now (WHAT??) and now I get something saying I owe $51 for the month. I'm going to give it another week for all my requests to settle down and then I'm going to call and try and ask what's going on.
The problem is that Sallie Mae's customer service people don't explain things very well. Either that or I'm a special kind of stupid and just really don't understand the whole thing. I just want to make ONE payment a month and I don't want it to bankrupt me. Seriously, that's all I'm asking for. (Although I understand that I have one personal loan that can't be consolidated, fine.) And I don't want to pay anything between now and January (when I start grad school) so that maybe I can afford to move to grad school and have a piece or two of furniture. Although, really, I probably could live w/just the furniture I have now, sparse as it is. Need to be able to afford to move and have food and internet access. You know, the staples.
