I’ve been a real grump lately. Mind you, I’ve had good reason. I’ve been working like crazy on a big project at work, which means lots of unpaid overtime. All the pressure from information provided at the last minute (not my fault, I’ve been pushing this puppy since January!) means I’ve been having weird dreams and making lots of mistakes.
I’ve been having various health woes as well, and it looks like I’ll have to finally schedule an operation I’d been putting off for awhile. *sigh* Even my brat was starting to get on my case, and you know what a bad sign that is. 😀
It doesn’t make for a pleasant disposition. So lots of things that I normally shrug off I’ve been finding particularly annoying. Like, let’s learn the concept of a PASSING LANE, people! There’s no shame in driving slow. Go only as fast as you can handle that death machine you call a car…it’s safer for everyone. However if you’re going slower than the posted speed limit and/or the flow of traffic, YOU DON’T BELONG IN THE FAR LEFT LANE! Yes, I know the merging lane on the right is more of a hassle, but that’s the price you pay for driving slower.
And while we’re on the subject, if I catch you texting while driving I am going to haul your *ss out of your car and slap you silly. And no, not in a fun way. You think you can multi-task. You are wrong. It’s obvious you cannot pay attention to traffic and do anything else, so pay the h*ll attention to traffic and quit endangering the rest of us!!
Finally, stop correcting me in the pronunciation of “bruschetta.” There’s no reason why everyone would know how to speak Italian, so I’m not blaming you for not knowing. I’m blaming you for trying to correct me when I DO know the pronunciation. Here’s a quick lesson. (I know how to pronounce “calzone” too, but I know I’m fighting a losing battle on that one, and it’s not as critical an “e,” being on the end and all.) I could go on about the right way to pronounce “karaoke” as well, but I sense I’m losing my audience here. So I’ll shut up now. The next post will be funnier.
Unless someone cuts me off in traffic. 😡
