So while I was racking my little brain for a blog idea today (also while wasting time on twitter and fb), I kept seeing little things that just bugged the piss out of me. I thought to myself, "Self, you're a venter. So why not just vent on that little blog of yours?" So that's what I'm going to do. You've been warned.
1. Businesses- why do you not keep regular business hours? There are a few small businesses/food places that are a crap shoot on whether they will be open or not. Sure, they say they are open from 10-4 or whatever, but that's just not the case. Or when you see those little handwritten notes on the door that say "Be back in 5 minutes." 5 minutes from when exactly? How are you supposed to keep your customers if they can't depend on you. It just looks bad, k?
2. People that don't respond- you make me angry. If I took the time out of my day to reply or comment, the least you could do is return the favor...at least sometimes. No, I don't expect it every single time, but once in a blue moon would be nice. Maybe I don't have hundreds or thousands of followers like you, but that does not make me any less of a person than your rude, popular butt. If I like you, I'll be your biggest supporter. I'm a talker; I like conversing in email or twitter or leaving comments, but there comes a point when I just give up.
3. Sponsoring- I get it. You want to make money on your blog. Heck, I've even sponsored a blog before. But I don't feel like I will again. Why? Because the person never showed any interest in my blog or twitter. No communication. No comments on my blog. No replies on the twit. Heck, they didn't even follow me (blog or twitter).
I feel like if I'm paying money, that's the least you could do in return, right? I sponsored that blog for a reason, because I honestly liked that blogger and wanted to become friends with her. Maybe I just don't know how it works or truly get it, but I felt a little bad about that. Just didn't seem worth it to me.
5. Plate pickers- keep your hands to yourself. It's beyond me why someone thingk it's okay to snatch something off your plate without bothering to ask first. I don't even do this to my immediate family without asking. I mean it's not a big deal; I wasn't going to eat it all anyway, but it's just common courtesy to ask. I've also had people say "give me the ...." What? Give it to you? Let's have some manners. So if we are at dinner, don't reach across the table and across my plate and pluck something off of my it without at least asking first.
So there are a few frustrations. Lezbehonest- we all have them; I just said them.
I obviously just learned how to use a gif in a blog post and am super excited about it. That may frustrate you, and that's ok too. Thanks to Brooke and Pearls and Curls for all your help!
Do you agree with me or am I way off base?
