Well, thanks for the compliments, but I swear the biggest peave I have about living in this area is the rush. We're always in a hurry, including me. I can be on my way to a relaxing yoga session, in a total frantic rush, even if I'm not late. I swear if you ever want to feel life in fast forward come visit the bay area. But there are lots of areas in California that are very relaxed, more rural, (more old-fashioned LOL) and people are kind. Even in my crazy area I try to smile at people and make eye contact and they always reciprocate. I think that type of culture starts with ourselves.

Twelve 2 year olds? Shoot me now. I don't think I could work with two 2 year olds. Twelve? Stress will be my killer too. I'm usually hyper wound. I can't relax really. Sad but true.

I really hate driving! My parents are making me drive whenever I go visit them. I can understand where they're coming from, but I'd prefer to take the bus.

I have a very long list of annoyances. Most of them are silly. I'm actually a very short tempered person. Most of all, I really hate the feeling of lotion on the palms of my hand and feet.

Bo Peep (Cambodian VT) / Goldilocks (Yellow VT) / Joie de Vivre (Multicolour VT) / Lil' Peep (Blue VT) / No name (Dalmatian VT) / No name 2

People talking on their cell phone in public. Just stop and breathe and look around you. The world will still be there when you're done grocery shopping. I don't really wanna hear you screaming about chicken noodle soup or gossiping with your girlfriend. I don't wanna be behind you on the road where you can't maintain a speed and talk at the same time. I certainly don't want to have to shift from foot to foot to try and get around you because you can't hear me say excuse me while you're on your phone. Unplug from the phone and plug into the world around you before you kill someone with your inattention.

Oh... and....

Every day I drop my husband off at the train station. They re-did the parking lot so that it's one way in and one way out. Then they put in a lane for just dropping off with NO PARKING signs all up and down. The same people park there everyday while their passengers wait in the car for the train. So I have to stop in the middle of the through lane to let my husband out. I just wanna get out of my car and jump up and down and have a fit. You are NOT special little snowflakes who get to park there, despite the sign. Get out of your freakin' cars and wait on the platform like all the other commuters. Lazy %*%$&%&(. There. I feel better.
