    It Must Be the Heat With No A/c and the Fire But I'm Really Cranky Today.

     I'm loosing my patience with people that don't use the brain they were given. I am assuming that they were given some sort of reasoning capability. I was standing in a crowd outside the grocery store listening to the fire Marshall give an up date on our forest fire...

    Oh My God...

    I have a friend who is just very, very, very...blond, ignorant, stupid, however you wish to put it. Sometimes I really just lose my temper with her because of her lack of understanding of very common sense things. One of the "blondest" things I ever heard come out of her mouth...

    My Day At the Dmv

    Yes, literally my WHOLE DAY!  After six trips and miles of red tape I finally got my license renewed at the DMV today.  (This state being one that passes them out to illegal aliens like candy mind you). At one point I witnessed a one side conversation...

    What Is It About Vacation?

    That makes people lose their minds? Let me explain. I worked at a hotel- a resort actually- on a huge body of water that will not go away for a very long time called the great lakes. Maybe you've heard of it no? (sarcasm) People call and ask "Is the water...

    UGH they drive me crazy! People ask the stupidest things sometimes...this especially happens in my classes. How these people passed grade school amazes me with some of the things that they ask. I understand that everyone learns at a certain pace and not everyone understands...

    this experience will have cussing in it

    and i will most likely turn into something close to a rant about people who i think are stupid. i think my problem with dumb questions started when i started working with people in a cavern. i would constantly be asked questions like "are we under ground?" yes we are...

    At times. Some questions are really stupid and annoy me. An obvious example of this would be a colleague asking "is so and so here?" when they can clearly see for themselves that they aren't!

    Not Always.

    Once in a while I am able to just grit my teeth and be nice when its a stranger, or when its just a question that wasn't quite explained the way it should be. But usually it just bugs the hell out of me. My dad and Mother-In-Law have a bad habit of doing this. Nothing gets on...

    Especially At Work

    Being the shift supervisor, I get bombarded with stupid questions all the time.  Stuff that people should know, that is right in front of their face. Sometimes, I'll just answer because it's easier, other times I'll  make them search for the answer themselves. ...

    A couple weeks ago, an annoying kid (in real

    life, by the way) asked me if I was really a girl. I kind of just stared at him, at first. Sure, I'm not your stereotypical girl; I don't go crazy over the latest boy bands, I don't listen to pop music, my hair isn't super-long, and I don't wear makeup (except for lip gloss, but...

    I'm not really - I am getting far more helpful

    and tolerant in my old age. But I do so find it a little irksome after you've tried to explain three times and they still don't geddit!

    I realise we are all different,

    Why are so many questions about sexual
