Monday Morning Pet Peeve (maybe I should just call it Tuesday Morning Pet Peeve)

Again, I apologize for the lack of a post last week and the late post this week. Things have been very busy at my day job. I actually have work to do, and unfortunately it's been taking me away from whining online. So I find myself with a short lull in the chaos, I will attempt to whine-away!

This weeks pet peeve comes from the last of us Metro Riders and Movie-goers. Last week, after a very long day at the office, I hop on to the green line to head home. Due to the lateness of the hour, there were very few people on the train (thankfully). So I plop myself in a seat, throw my bag next to me, get comfy and shut my eyes.

After we depart I feel something pushing my bag on top of me and squeezing her rotund self in between the arm rest and me! What the hell?!?!?! If the train was crowded, fine, I wouldn't give it much thought, but the fact there were PLENTY of available seats around really pissed me off! I could never understand why people do that. The other place that is notorious for that type of behavior is the movie theaters! I can not count how many times I've been to the movies and been excited because I have the a whole section of seats to myself. I'm free to lounge and spread out. And then, sure as S#it, some loud ass comes and sits down as close as he possibly can to me!!! ARRRGH!!! Out of ALL the empty seats in this theatre, what makes the seat next to me so appealing??? It boggles my mind! If anyone has an answer, please let me know!

Later!

Monday Morning Pet Peeve (on Tuesday Again!)


Sorry for the delay, it's hard to keep this thing up while on the day job. Work always gets in the way.

Anyway, I was in the mall the other day and I was waiting in line at a store to try on some clothes. The employee attending to the fitting rooms was wearing fitted levi jeans, however, his boxers were completely exposed. Seeing this horrible lapse of fashion sense lead me to ask:

When did "sagging" your jeans make a come back??

When I was young we used to sag our jeans a little. Occasionally you had someone who would take it too far and have their belt dangling near their knees, but that wasn't too widespread. Also the difference between kids back then (mid 90's) and kids now is that the jeans in the mid 90's were baggy to begin with, so when you sagged them, it didn't look as awkward as it does now. Kids today have seemed to mix the trend of fitting jeans (slim jeans) and sagging your jeans together. This makes for a TERRIBLE combination.

I was speaking to a friend who happend to have a relative recently released from prison. When he saw kids running around with their asses hanging out, he turned to his cousin and said "You know in prison having your ass hang out like that tells the other inmates what your into." (i.e. your a bottom!)

Monday Morning Pet Peeve - Ladies First Edition!

Sorry for missing last weeks Monday Morning Pet Peeve, I've actually had work to do, so paying the bills came before my ignorant musings.

Today will be brief. I will need the women of the world to stop wearing too much makeup! All too often men are duped and bamboozled into thinking that you really look like that! That your skin is actually flawless and that your eyebrows are really shaped like that.

It's not fair dammit!! Guys (at least most straight guys) don't wear makeup so there is no misleading or false advertisement on our part. The way we looked at the club the night before is the way we will look first thing in the morning. Unfortunately I can't say the same for some women, emphasis on SOME! God Bless 'em, there are some woman that actually do look as advertised, and a little make up is fine. But when you start to get mistaken for Ronald McDonald, Side-Show Bob or even worse--A Muppet--, you've gone too far. See Picture.. (courtesy of www.willotoons.com and www.mennadata.com)
