Amazing photos on Facebook

Sometimes, I see a picture on Facebook that someone else took and other people say is “amazing” but I think it’s “meh” at best. My GF says I’m bitter, and I just need to get over it.

I think people don’t understand the meaning of words.

It also makes me not take compliments like “that’s an amazing photo you took Raf” with anything less than a pound of salt.

Maybe, I am a little bitter.


Things That Suck

I don’t mean things that suck in a “ooh baby just like that” kind of way. I mean it in the bad way.

  • Forgetting your lunch at home and not having any money to buy a lunch
  • Not having money to buy lunch
  • Not having money to buy gas
  • Walking around the office all day only to realize, late in the day, that the reason people were looking at you was because your fly was open
  • Having holes in your socks that you didn’t know about until it was too late
  • Having to fart, but not being able to because of social norms
  • Not being able to make people care about things that are happening in the nation and the world
  • People like Lamar Smith (R) Texas that don’t understand the implications of the bills that they keep introducing, but they continue to introduce the bills because they were written by ALEC
  • Citizens United
  • Congress, it really is the opposite of progress.
  • My inability to say “no.” I need to learn to say that more often since it gets me into more trouble than anything else I do or don’t do.
  • Owing money on your taxes
  • Insomnia
  • Being so tired that you can’t fall asleep
  • Traffic at 2am when all you want to do is get home
  • The price of gasoline
  • Car repair bills
  • Being in debt
  • Bullet lists
This is by no means an exhaustive list. Feel free to add your own in the comments.


Don’t Chew Your Food With Your Mouth Open

Seriously, don’t chew your food with your mouth open.

There is no reason for me to be able to see the food in your mouth being chewed. There’s also no reason for me to be able to hear you chewing your food.

What are you?

A cow?

Some kind of dog?

Have you never been taught that basic rule of polite and civilized society?

Is your name Romulus or Remus?

Have you no lips?

If none of the above apply to you, then you have no excuse. Close your mouth when you’re chewing your food.

People chewing with their mouths open, is a huge pet peeve of mine. It drives me up the wall. I can tolerate it to a certain degree in little kids, but I cannot tolerate it from adults. Specially from adults that I have to sit next to in a closed door meeting.


Don’t even get me started with mouth breathers.
