Nerves

Things that are annoying: high school kids on the bus, insurance companies, and newspapers with grammatical errors.

The morning bus we ride in to work frequently has more high school kids than non-school passengers. This isn’t so bad except that apparently no one bothers to teach manners (I’d say “anymore” but I suspect my peers weren’t any better) to teenagers. The number of kids sitting in seats with their big ol’ backpacks on the seat next to them, while the rest of us poor schmucks who got on after them stand in the aisles and tip around like dominoes drives me nuts. Hello??!? Move your damn bag over so the rest of us can sit down!!!

My insurance company has been giving me the runaround as I’ve been trying to fill a prescription. They want me to buy pills twice the dosage as my prescription and cut them in half. Sorry, no dice. The pills are tiny and I have doubts about being able to cut them in half and still have the dosage accurate.

Lastly, let me just say that it’s “faze” not “phase” in the phrase “Such and such didn’t faze her.” Get a freakin’ dictionary! I saw that one in the Portland Tribune. I see it all the time in personal writing (and bite my tongue) but you’d think a newspaper could do a better job.

Argh. Too many things getting on my nerves lately. I need to chill out.

    I think you and I must ride the same bus! (And I just vented about this very issue a few days ago, heh.)

    Although I do have to say that one young girl always gets up and offers my six-year-old daughter her seat whenever there’s not even one available one for her.
    But most of the kids seem really annoyed when I ask them to move their crap so my daughter can sit down.

    Too bad, says me.

    Or how about “She was suppose to go to…..” When
    did we stop leaving the ‘d’ off that word? I see it all the time. And last week I was reading KPTV on line and spotted a horrendous spelling error
    “hanus”, can you believe this??? Who is monitoring these people? Are they just not being
    taught? Lord.

    ~K!
