    I yelled at the lawn mower

    as it wouldn't start today.. I filled it upwith the right fuel I checked to see it was turned on and in the right gear but every time I pulled the cord it wouldn't start.. So I tried a few times and when I started talking calmly to it.. It started. Lol sad but true.

    When I try to pick something up

    but somehow my hand misses it. I try again and I miss/drop the thing. My attitude fled from 0-60 on no time.

    Why is it that after tearing the house

    inside-out looking for the remote, that I finally end up finding it under a fcking magazine? This is why I yell at inanimate objects! I'm like "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? DON'T YOU KNOW I WAS WORRIED SICK ABOUT YOU?!"

    pencils, homework, forks,

    stuffed animals, my phone. anything that isn't cooperating with what I want it to do, i will blame it on the object to make myself feel better. sometimes I just talk to the object normally, like if I lose a pencil I will ask where it has gone, its a way to organize my thoughts.

    I'm becoming more aware

    that I do this. The other day I was running late for work and my jacket got stuck on the hanger. So I started scolding the jacket for having attachment issues. I went on for a good 5 min or so before I realized what I was doing. Yep.

    patience with objects. I am very patient with animals, but not objects. Or people.

    I tend to yell at my hair gel,

    shampoo, and hair brush a lot. For two reasons, one, I always get damn soap in my eyes. Two, well my hair's getting a tad bit long and is hard to style, so I find myself yelling and my gel and brush because they can't do the job right.

    Mostly stupid things like cups

    or pencils. "You better not roll off this table or I swear you're never going to be used again!" Or "If you tip over I'm going to kill you". If inanimate objects have feelings, I'm so sorry.
