People talking without reasons. I don't mind chatting, but when I'm obviously not paying attention or don't comment, then please shut up! I get seriously annoyed with the partner when he just rambles away and with workmates who do the same.

I think it comes from working in retail. I hear so many people all day that when I'm not at work, I really don't want to speak or listen to speech. If I could live at home in complete silence, I would.

I suspect I have some important mental wires crossed.
Good news! Your insurance company says they'll cover you. Unfortunately, they also say it will be with dirt.

Nah, my bff works in retail and she's said pretty much the same thing.  She lives alone and has said she doesn't like listening to the radio cause she doesn't feel like hearing the dj's inane chatter and commercials when she hears people talking all day long.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars.  You have a right to be here. Be cheerful, strive to be happy. -Desiderata

Facebook and other social media sites interfering with your browser history. On some sites that I read, when you attempt to click the back/forward button, you don't go anywhere. Because Facebook or other social media have inserted their own "page" into the history, usually because of links between the site and those social media sites. You have to then use the feature to jump back/forward multiple pages, and sometimes there are so many social media "pages" that you have to do multiple back/forward jumps just to get to the real page that you want.

I recently switched from a pre-paid account for my and DS' cellular phones to a contract account. I received a discount because of my employer and have the ability to buy any phone they carry with no money down and interest free financing. DH has been talking for months about getting a new phone, as he currently carries one provided by his employer that doesn't have a data plan.

I told DH to look at the website and check reviews then we would go to the store so he could see the phones and pick one out.

Yesterday DH tells me that he checked and he doesn't really like any phones they carry (???) but he found X phone at Y place.  ::) I told him fine, then he buys that phone and I won't worry about it. They carry phones from all major manufacturers and have the newest and latest phones. He couldn't find one he liked?  :(

I have the opposite problem with the weather ones, in that I am almost always cold so I bundle up and don't like to sit outside in the cold and damp.  I am sick of people laughing at me and saying, "It's not cold!".

I feel you.  I hate hot weather... when it gets above 70 or so, I need A/C.  It infuriates me when people say "just open a window!"  That does NOT work when the humidity is high, you live in a very urban area (google "Heat Island'), and you have computers right next to you!

Swap ya!

Generally I get comfortable at the point where everyone else is too hot :)

It does mean that I own a lot of beautiful sweaters, wraps, shawls, blankets etc.

I run hot and one of the girls at work runs cold.  We always joke that the office temperature must be perfect for everyone else if I'm hot and she's cold.

My child's inability to just sit and get his homework done without getting up an down ten times, telling totally unrelated stories, asking 5 million unrelated questions, messing with the dog and dragging behind through the whole process

No, he does not have ADD or any other learning disability, he just hates homework.

When comic series I'm following do multi-part crossovers with series I have no interest in following.

Back in November, I received word that the first phase of a long term project was finally complete. It had involved a group of people surveying documents and organization of a website and deciding what needs to stay, be updated, be deleted or moved. I am responsible for the next phase of the project, but I have had other tasks to accomplish.

I realized today that there are pages of updates to be done. I simply do not have time to update 100+ documents with the rest of my schedule.

I did get my boss to the same page as me and she will be sending them out for other staff to update. Phew!

Getting angry at the drop of a hat/taking anything and everything personally due to PMS.  I can't wait to be sane again.

That's me right  now. Add my anxiety and I am super fun to be around. Today I got frustrated as my internet connection was not working the way I wanted it to. Yesterday it was trying to set up to two shows to record on the sky box. I was getting angry at the thing and my hubby told me to calm down. I seriously think telling a woman with PMS to calm down is the worst thing you can do.

You and me both! I am very sensitive to humidity, and if its particularly humid, and maybe raining, even in the 60's, I've been known to put the A/C on. Bonus points to those (my downstairs neighbor I'm looking at you) who tell me its "wasteful" to run myA/C 24/7.

Right. When you start paying my electric bill, YOU can then tell me what I can and can't do. And for the record, I turn it way down during the day (two thru-the-wall units) to keep the humidity down, adn back up again when I'm home. The last thing I want, after coming home from both my jobs at 10 pm is to have to wait 3 hours for it to cool down to my liking! And by doing that, my bill is never really al lthat much.
