Usually my Maid/Matron of Honor and I chat on gchat all day and can share all our little grievances… but today she’s doing weddingy stuff with her parents (yay for her!) which means I’ve got no one to vent to. Lucky WB! heh.
Today, I’m annoyed that….
No one in my generation seems capable of MAKING and KEEPING a plan. I’m so so so sick of “playing it by ear” and “we’ll see how it goes” and “maybe.” Don’t ask me to do something and then be unable to commit to the specifics. Don’t make plans and then break them. 47 times. Today’s specific instance is my hs best friend who lives in Florida and I haven’t seen in a good 5-6 years. Her and her bf drove from FL to OH to see family for this past week and she contacted me to say she’d really like to stop and see me and meet my Fiance on her way to or from her parents’ house (I live about 2 hrs away kind of “on the way” to Florida). I said great! She suggested on the way up. And up until the day of, that was the plan. And then she decided that since they’d be getting in late maybe it’d be better if they came on their way back to florida so we’d have more time. She suggested wednesday (yesterday). I said okay and I asked my Fiance to schedule his poker night (at our house) to tonight so it wouldn’t conflict. Then she changed it from yesterday until today at noon. I said okay since they were only stopping for a few hours, but that Fiance had a poker game at 7. She said they’d be gone long before then. Then at 11am she tells me that they’ll be here at 2. Then at 12:30pm she tells me they’ll be here at 4. Now its almost 3pm and they haven’t left her mom’s house yet (again… 2 hrs away). Seriously? YOU wanted to see ME. Make a plan and stick with it. /vent.
Get if off your chest girls…. what is annoying you today?

I’m sorry! That would drive me crazy. I’m a very scheduled person and it does bother me when my schedule is disrupted. Now I don’t mind if a friend calls to change a meeting time, but if the friend was going back and forth with a different time, I would get really annoyed. Are you going to talk to her about how you feel when she comes over?

That would drive me crazy too.
I am annoyed that I bought pepper jack cheezits instead of cheddar jack. I’m also annoyed with a coworker, who totally sandbagged me with an incident that came up last night. I’m annoyed that this afternoon seems to be dragging on an on and I’m not being very productive today.

lol she just texted that she’s on her way (finally). Will put her here about 5. I will not tell her I’m annoyed because its the first time I’ve seen her in 5 years and I might not see her again for the next 5 years. I don’t really see the point in souring what (little) time we do have to catch up. If she was someone I planned to see on any kind of regular basis I would say something.

Boyfriend who claims to be a homebody is dragging me out to socialize with relatively big groups five weekends in a row, yet he complains if I say “hey, we should go out for lunch because I accomplished (insert accomplishment here)!” Then he jumps my case about not having enough friends locally, and that I only go out because he does? Maybe, just maybe, if I weren’t forced to hang out with a dozen people every weekend, I (a major introvert) might have the motivation to hang out with my local friends. As it is, I write during the week while he’s at work (which prevents me from going out during the week – he works until 10 every night), then he plans something every single weekend. If I suggest something to do with our mutual friends, he comes up with some flimsy excuse as to why it won’t work – “naw, the laser tag place will be filled with kids” (it rarely has more than one car in the parking lot) “No, we’d need to find a better place for that” “Like here?” “Well, it’s warm, so no.” … “No, we went out last night, I want to stay home.” WTF?

I’m annoyed that FI’s RSVP-challened guy friends have 1. RSVD’d 10 days late, and 2. added people to their RSVP that were not actually invited, also 3. one told us today that their fiance that was originally not coming when he RSVD’d 4 weeks ago is now coming. I bet they are going to realize how horrible they are being when they get all their RSVP’s in about a month for THEIR wedding. I already made escort cards for everyone, including the couple hold outs we hadn’t heard from, thinking that I had all my bases covered. I’m going to passive aggressively fill in the uninvited people by hand, since it’s too late to do the Moo card printing. WTF is wrong with people??

This heat! Seriously, we here in the Midwest are m-eeelll–tinnnggg. Melting, I say. Darling Husband was going to use his buddy’s shop to weld the exhaust on my car back on (HA!) but it’s just tooo darn hot to be welding!
Post # 12
@Miss Snowflake: Oh, you guys aren’t melting that much compared to here! We’ve had 19 straight 100+ degree days here in Dallas! Although I think it only made it to 98 or 99 today so no more streak.
@CorgiTales: OMG!! I think you and I are the same generation and I Can’t Stand when people can’t make plans and stick to them. I’m a very detail oriented, organized person but when everyone around you won’t commit to things – I just end up stuck and I hate it. Our generation is so wishy-washy.
One of my friends was supposed to come visit me when I was out in CA. I was there for 10 months and she could never just pick a date that she was coming. Then she finally said she was coming for my last weekend out there and we were going to go explore the national park together. The weekend beforehand, she backed out.
My friends were the same way with my bachelorette party. Wouldn’t make decisions and stick with them and it drove my sister/MOH (who is just like me) crazy! Then they changed their getting home plans the night before and left my sister and I stranded for 6 hours! Arrggg!!

I am annoyed it isnt 5 yet! I am annoyed with my husband who has a lack of communication and seems to be PMSing the last few days making me miserable.

totally agree with the time… it’s DRAGGING!!!
what’s annoying me? hmmmmm… phone wouldn’t stop ringing, so I didn’t get to call my Fiance back before he want in to work. boo
gotta get my daughter from FI’s parents before getting my son from the babysitter (she’s such a manipulative little thing… and only 4.)
it’s FREEEEZING IN THIS COMPUTER ROOM!!!! Frosty would be VERY happy in here. Me? No so much.
co-worker is a lazy jerk who doesn’t want to work on the computers; I can’t because I’ve running another co-worker’s shift who is out due to knee surgery.

Corgi: My husbands friends are totally like what you are talking about.
Everything is planned last minute, and if you try to plan something in advance, you have no idea how many people to expect.
I like to RSVP, I like to be on time (early even), and I would never consider just not showing up to something.

My insurance raised my rate again!! And I didn’t even do anything, and I turn 25 this month! I called them and told them I was expecting it to go down, and they said there’s nothing they can do. I pay $185 a month on my 6 year old HYUNDAI. It’s really California’s fault, I hate living in this state! I make what I thought was a lot of money until California has managed to squander every last dime from my [email protected]!
