SOME OF MY PET PEEVES.

It's too early in the morn for me to think of more than the following pet peeves, but these should suffice for now until I collect my thoughts at another time. YAWN!

Anyway, I hate having to groom myself. Really man. And the older I get, the more hair it seems I have to trim or shave. I got hair growing in certain places that really astounds me sometimes. This only proves that I'm a mammal of some sort after all. Alas, I can't bring myself to just not give a damn and embrace looking like Jean Valjean from Les Misérables fresh out of prison! It just ain't too becoming of me to sport the whino homeless destitute look, so I gotta continue shaving and trimming I suppose. I feel sorry for women, who have to go through a lot worse.

Tailgating assholes should be burned alive. YES. ARGH! I'm not going to go any faster, nor is my car going to magically produce wings on the sides so that I can fly off and give you the road. You're tailgating me when I'm already doing about 45 m.p.h. on a basic street you asswipe? Or when there's already heavy traffic?! What if I were to brake all of a sudden you thoughtless nincompoop?! HUH?! You would certainly end up hitting me you retard! ARGH! What's really most shocking is that some of these really dumb aggressive drivers can actually be some of the nicest people when not behind the wheel--once they do get in their four wheels however, they somehow turn into militant Hitlerian dictators with strange power trips.

And this outsourcing shit is really really REALLY irritating. I mean, I don't give a damn if they speak English in India or the Philippines, I wanna talk to an American for Christ's sake, not someone who is on the other side of the planet. I had this issue when dealing with Dell regarding the purchase of my desktop a few years back; I got to make several free phone calls to Bombay, Calcutta, Manila, and other major Indian/Philippine cities without having any relatives living there and it would really annoy the heck out of me to have to speak to these people regarding my botched-up order. They were very nice and well-trained mind you, but somehow their non-American accents really left me feeling uneasy! I WANTED TO DEAL WITH AN AMERICAN DAMNIT; someone who lives on our soil who could understand ma pain! LOL! Alas, this outsourcing shit is now very common, as our companies continue to destroy jobs in order to save money.


Alas, I have no magic wand to solve my pet peeves either.

Don't I know how that grooming thing so sucks. My tweezers are so well used. I wonder how painful a full body/head waxing would be?

Emma said...

grooming sucks monkey balls. seriously, i wonder what would happen if we all just STOPPED grooming ourselves for awhile. just stopped shaving, bathing, etc.
oh, i guess that already happened, but back then they called it woodstock.
only joking, i love me some hippies. if i weren't so aggressive and bitchy i would probably be one.

As bad as out sourcing is for this economy (or is it?), I must admit I find the Indian's to be more polite and patient than their American counterparts. We Americans are pretty adolescent as society's go, I am the biggest offender believe me.....

I think Owen Wilson and his big fat schnoz are a hot commodity...did you not see Zoolander?

alexgirl said...

Hah! As you know from my last post, I love me some grooming. there's just something about a haircut...
But the wino-homeless-destitute look sounds awesome... if you do it, you have to put up pics!

Seriously, that outsourcing thing pisses me off. Whenever my internet goes down I have to talk to someone that I can't understand and I feel like a jerk for saying "huh???" over and over and over.

Outsourcing is important for globalization and a world economy.

And, I'd rather see American jobs lost to educated people in other countries clamoring for work while American counterparts gab about Britney's comeback. Know what I mean?

If anyone asks why you're not grooming, you can just say you recently got into poetry. They'll understand.

I worked in a call center and about once a day I'd get some bigot ass trying to "catch" me because I have a foreign accent. "Where are you located?" - "Columbia, Maryland." - "I know the company is in Maryland, but where are you talking from?"

All I'm saying is, we have bigger fish to fry in this country.

I was let go from one tech job because the whole company was outsourced to India.

Then I heard on the news people yelling about how mexicans were taking jobs away from the Americans.

Well, an Indian took my job away, and no one was screaming on the radio in spanish.

I hear you on grooming... what a pain in the ass. Ah, the Hitlerian drivers... you know what I hate the most, it's the amount of times I've almost been killed by SUV driving soccer moms who are talking on their cellphones and they fly through stuff like stop signs without even stopping... they can go to hell.

And of course, I really believe those folks in Bangalore when they say: "Hi, this is Sean..." "My name is Connie, how may I help you today..."

Actually, the techies in Cupertino or Austin may "speak English" but babble so much tech talk so quickly and assune you understand every word of it.

So it's a toss up -- fast tech or slow Hindi-accented English. That's why I've increasingly opted for Geek Squad.

Your pet peeves had me cracking up dude... especially the tail gating peeve... LMAO

Whenever you find yourself being harassed by an asshole, just suck it up and slam on your breaks. Bet that motha effa would have the shock of his life (and glass in his devil eyes).

I'm hairy too pa, and all in the wrong places. Maybe we can spoon in all our hairiness... LOL.
