I've Been Thinking....

Over the last couple of days I've been thinking of pet peeves, and I've discovered that I have a LOT of them!!

For instance, just now I answered the phone at work. I took all the pertinent information and was proceeding to wind down the call. Just as I was going to say "good bye, have a nice day" the caller wound back up and starting yakity yak yak yakkin' about schat that I really didn't care about.

Everytime I tried to interject with a polite comment followed by a "good bye, have a nice day" he kept talking. And talking. AND TALKING!!!!

My "in-my-head-voice" was screaming SHUT UP, STOP TALKING.... SSSSHHHHUUUUUUTTTTT UUUUUUPPPPPPPP !!!!! FFFFFAAAAAAKKKKKK !!!! Apparently it would be frowned upon if I were to interrupt and say, "Excuse me, but could you please just shut the eff up?" I don't know why, I think some people need this kick in the chompers so that they become aware of the rambling idiot that they are. I view it as being akin to holding a mirror up in front of Mimi and saying "Girl you look like a clown" ... WHAAAAT this is frowned upon too ??? Damn PC crap.... *sigh* OK, I'll put up with the nonsense and continue with my "in-my-head" conversations, but seriously, if my inner bitch ever escapes, I am not responsible.

*Deep cleansing breath*... I guess what I'm trying to say is this: when making professional phone calls, please, for the love of God and all that's holy, just say what you have to say and then carry on your merry little way.

I can almost guarantee you that the person on the other end doesn't give two schats about your nonsensical ramble.

Good bye, have a nice day!!

I remember one day when I was young 'un my mother fell asleep while talking to my Aunt Lulu on the phone.

An hour later Lulu was still chatting away. That's when I poked mom to wake her up.
