    Today didn't start better. Arrived at work very early today to prepare for the exams. At 7 a.m. Turns out that I arrived soon after a break-in. Someone had smashed 2 windows to my collaegues' offices and stolen a computer. I have my office just a few steps away, but no one had been in there at least.

    The alarm going off must have made them rush it.

    The funny thing was that I didn't notice anything when I came to work. I turned on all the lights and went to my desk. Then another teacher arrived and she didn't notice anything either. :lol: Two completely oblivious people. Then the principal's right hand teacher came in and asked us what had happen. We were like "happened?! Nothing has happened" :lolo: And THEN we noticed!

    Then the police arrived and wrote a standard report. Bla bla bla.

    People who only talk sometimes. When they are full of the joys and they speak to you, invite you to dinner, out for a drink. Then don't speak the next day. Then speak again and start the whole cycle over again. Why?

    Perhaps everything's already been discussed the night before?

    Music in stores. I hate all of the crappy pop music that blares in background nearly everywhere I go. Seriously, why does there always have to be music!? I couldn't even just try on some clothes in a changing room at JC Penny's today without hearing "It's going to be a great day!! Whoa-oh-oh-ohhh!" (or something like that) blaring right in my ear. The voices of these singers are so cringeworthy and terrible that I have to wonder if they are even real professional artists anymore, or just people who won American Idol. It will be a great day when I don't have to listen to this garbage anymore!

    Oh my God, just yesterday I had my once or twice-a-week Farmer's Market run, and they always play music quite loudly, and I was thinking how much I LOVE it. They play all kinds of random pop songs from the 80s on and I can't help but sing and dance along to Mariah Carey and Madonna while sorting through cucumbers and tomatoes. It's so much fun.

    People who find the need to tell you that the kettle's boiled and go round every single person to tell them that the kettle is boiled.

    This reminds me of a news story I heard years ago:
    A group of boys knew of a restaurant that served free ice cream on your birthday. The boys signed up using their real names but decided to create several false names and birthdays (with their real addresses) as well so they could get more free ice cream. After the fictitious boys 18th birthdays had passed the Selective Service Administration sent notices to the fictitious boys telling them they were in violation for not registering.

    The borderline-creepy way companies sell your personal data to the highest bidder can easily create situations like the one above.

    Women that put on full make up while on the train in the morning on the way to work. For goodness sake, just get up 10 mins earlier and put your make up on at home!

    Bought a bra today - why in the name of God do I have to give my postcode? And do I want a bag?

    No love I will just carry it up the street.

    UPS' "upgraded" website, obviously designed for cellphone use.:a2:
    But I don't wipe, I scroll! And it's a lot of extra scrolling and clicking*, and every page has to "adjust" to normal computer screen (because of the new web design) and when I want to mouse-click fast, I click on the wrong thing!:r&r:

    *whatever happened to those good old drop-down menus that appeared by simply mousing over it?

    The trend for people to answer every question by starting with the word "so".

    Love it.
    I know people need them but I actually can't see the logic of allowing even service animals into shops. Does training them magically make them cleaner too?
    I hate DVD holders that fold out. They're so much harder to manipulate than the page-style cases.

    I hate it when I see a beautiful place but I can't live there! I feel so jealous of people who can enjoy the warm weather for longer than 3 months :(
