Just found out that my boss got promoted is being transferred to another office. I could transfer over, but the commute would be around 3 hours. So my job is techinically disappearing and now I’m on the job hunt again.

 

Ugh.

runsauce :  I actually hate when someone acknowledges my sneezes lol. I didn’t really grow up around it, I know it’s just a social norm, but it always annoys me! Let me sneeze in peace!!

Some of these are wedding bee related others are just general annoyances.

1. People posting their moissanites rings and when no one even mentioned anything about diamonds writing lengthy statements about why they didn’t choose a diamond and all the reasons why they hate them, but how they absolutely could afford a huge one if they wanted to. I don’t give a crap why you didn’t buy a diamond and I don’t think anyone else here does… because we’re not talking about diamonds. Noone here is posting their diamond rings and randomly telling people why they hate moissanites and would never choose one even though they could afford a huge one. 

2. People not knowing the difference between advice and advise 

3. People whose first and only post is to have everyone fawn over their very expensive ring, it’s tacky (that’s my opinion and this is a no consequence thread so don’t @ me) 

4. People (mainly men) who sneeze extremely loud and dramatically for attention 

5. Sh*t parents who think that because their kids have some kind of “diagnosis” means they’re immune to discipline and everyone else should have to put up with their awful behaviour. I totally understand when a child has autism or ADHD etc that they are not like other children and that often them “misbehaving” is due to their condition.  However, I am talking about parents whose kid got a diagnosis of for example, anxiety (I have anxiety, so just using it as an example) then decided that means they never have to discipline their kid, let them run riot and cause havoc and then kick off when people voice annoyance about their behaviour. “Yes I understand that my son kicked your dog, drew all over your walls and poured cola on your carpet while I acted like it wasn’t happening, but he has anxiety, he can’t help it, so how dare you judge me as a mum”.

Typical grammar/spelling errors. This one drives me up a wall: 

“I am a strong women”

IT’S “WOMAN”!!!!!! Singular! With an A!!!

“Women” is PLURAL! Like “more than one woman!”

You are ONE W.O.M.A.N

It’s not hard!!!!

I am so fucking sick of seeing “defiantly” in place of definitely. Yes, it’s probably auto-correct, but for fuck’s sake, proofread. I see it everywhere. Facebook, here, IG, etc.

I hate everything my next-door co-worker does. She pisses me off simply by showing up at work. But namely, I hate the way she chomps ice, cuts her fingernails, says “umm” incessantly, and peeks around her door trying to hear what I’m saying on the phone. I can see her reflection in the wall of windows outside our offices. She has no clue. She’s done this for 5 years now. If it weren’t so comical, I’d say “K, do you need something?”

When coworkers ask me about anything and everything (pertaining to work) rather than check their own email records or even try Googling their questions/issues first. It is SO annoying when I’m neither IT support, HR, or part of the admin team – I’m a programmer – but as a longtime employee of the company, they figure it is easier to pick my brain than take fifteen seconds themselves and use their OWN brains to problem solve. 95% of the time I do have an answer… But have gotten so fed up that my go-to responses are to forward emails that the questioning parties have either sent/been copied on back to them with “please see your previous responses for this topic for future reference” or to ask if their internet connection on their computer is bad, as the best option is to Google their inquiry (which is what I myself would do for a similar quandry) but unfortunately I am busy with my own deadlines and cannot look it up for them.

It’s just really annoying to have your time disrespected. END RANT.

JsDragonfly :  Congratulations on your progress and well-deserved upcoming vacation! I just went on my first cruise in February and honestly the impression I got from most of the other guests on the boat were that 99% of them were pretty chill, in full-on vacation mode, and kept to themselves (got one catty comment about my bony concave chest in a string bikini from a very elderly lady, but she also called me Pocahontas referring to my heritage, so I didn’t put too much stock in it). The staff are all SO nice and definitely don’t come off as judgy or annoyed by modification requests when it comes to meals (my Mother-In-Law is low carb, I try to eat mostly plant-based (but will try delicious-sounding meat dishes), my fiance hates all seafood) and they never made us feel like we were inconveniencing them by ordering multiple dishes, or by asking to sub items, etc. Enjoy!!!

annabanana89 :  Thank you!  I love to travel, but this is the first time I’ve ever been on a cruise!  There’s a group of six of us going, so it’ll be a blast!  I just need to stay positive.  99% of the time I could care less what people think.  I’m not quite sure why this is the 1% of the time I’m paranoid?  Maybe it’s the bathing suit issues.  

I can not believe what that lady said to you!  How rude!  

Thanks again for your encouragement 🙂

annabeth929 :  why do people think it’s ok to cut their nails at work???? This happens at my job, in an office, law firm…WHY?!? There have been 3 people over the years. It’s crazy to me. What makes you think “I should take my nail clippers to work, it’s easier to cut them there than at home”?!

Another vent? People assuming I must be stressed being only a week and half to the big day. Or act all surprised “oh you seem so relaxed!” 

Like…again…it’s just a party… I need way more than this to stress me out..

Oh and people asking “sooo how’s everything coming along?? Is everything done?” I’m like… yea it’s a week away, what do you think? Lol… but seriously, people have been asking me this same question for the last 6 months or more, like, I still have a life outside of wedding planning you know? My life doesn’t evolve around this..

Some months ago life had been very stressful for various reasons, and wedding planning was the last thing on my mind (and plus everything was in motion and nothing really needed to be done urgently). And one lady at work was commenting on stress of selling her house etc, and was trying to find a relatable thing to comment on that I might relate, and wedding planning was the only example she could come up with, I nearly laughed, like, that’s the LEAST stressful thing in my life but ok.

runsauce :  Due to a new inside joke between me and hubby, I have to hold back the urge to say “Stop it!” whenever someone sneezes a bunch in a row. We have found it to be much more effective in stopping the sneezing LOL

ariesscientist :  Your #4 reminds me of a pet peeve of mine.

You do not need to yell when you vomit. Your esophagus/pharynx and your larynx are two separate systems. If you need to throw up, just open your mouth and your body will take care of the rest. No yelling needed.

happiekrappie :  You’re totally right and that’s what my SO keeps saying. While his friend can be pretty naive, I didn’t think it was possible to be so naive that you’d fall for something like this. So I’m assuming that he’s fully aware of the mess he’s getting himself into and either doesn’t think it’s going to pan out like that, or he thinks ALL relationships are like that. The reason it irks me so much is because I know we’ll have friends that can’t help but compare our weddings. Theirs will be as crazy as it comes and ours is much more modest. But people know our relationship and know that we don’t give a flying corgi about the opinion of others. We’re secure in our relationship and don’t have to shell out $80,000 to convince friends that we’re in love.
