- Birth Shamers: There are camps of people who think anyone who gets an epidural or has a c-section is a terrible person.
- the cashier who couldn't just give me a quarter back for change for a $9.76 bill she had to give me 24 cents because all those pennies add up
- the lady at the podiatrist office who, after entering my info in her computer, is going to make me fill out multiple forms asking the same information because she doesn't have the tools or the brains to transfer the information to those forms; nor the ability to email them to me ahead of time..
then I had a lunchtime meeting so with my Annoyance Levels already peaked I run downstairs to Halsted Deli and get my usual triple decker (this is one of the better sandwiches they make). The cashier couldn't just give me a quarter back for change for a $9.76 bill; she had to give me 24 cents because you know, all those pennies add up. I mean I can put up with their higher price on their Egg McMuffin knock off that doesn't include hash browns, and their markup on Chips and Soda. But making me carry two dimes and four pennies? Rage Beast!
I asked myself why I get so bent out of shape when things like this happen and it comes down to this. First, I don't like paying the inconvenience tax for someone else's deficiency. Second, it makes me feel powerless and not in control of my life.
