HoHo and Wendy started a new link-up entitled "That Time of the Month." It's a time for us to air our grievances and get those annoying little things off of our chest.
Here is a hodgepodge of things that are currently irking me to no end:
Summertime always means road construction, but this year seems to be exponentially worse than most years. I feel like I can barely walk two blocks without being slammed with road closures, gaping chasms in the asphalt/sidewalk, and seas of orange.
I have a few sports bras that are a huge struggle to get off. They stick to me like they have been glued to my skin! It's a terrible feeling to be exhausted and sweaty post-workout while having to do the awkward contortionist dance. There have been moments that I thought I was going to fracture my shoulder blades.
On a tangent - I completely agree with Marcia's thoughts on the removable pads that seem to multiply into oblivion.
Drawing the short lace
I have a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 18s that I like, save for the fact that the shoelaces are way too short. I don't want to replace the shoelaces since they really add to the design. But unless I experiment with lacing them up in some length-preserving method, I may have no choice.
There are some folks at the gym who reserve every piece of equipment for themselves. Usually they "mark" things by leaving their towel, water bottle, or left shoe in every direction. It's very frustrating to see an empty machine that I need to use, only to find someone calling dibs for their circuit training.
I am fine being a peon, thank you
Every time I go to Costco, I get a sales pitch at checkout to upgrade my membership. Telling them "No, thanks" doesn't work, either - they just keep pushing. Now I grit my teeth each time I approach the register.
Your turn. Please tell me what is irking you these days?
