Comments: 10 Peevish Things

Dear Anne,

You are nice! You are, in fact, great! I think you have lost a few "pounds", haven't you? I am sure you could easily become Governor of California when they recall Arnold.

This being said, I would like to point out that we welltrained people of good health don't *need* to run up or down the stairs, that's why we take the elevator. Also, it is very difficult to signal just because we have to change lanes when we are discussing extremely important business or political things over the phone since we need one hand for the "cell" phone and another one for the steering wheel. (If you drove a little slower it wouldn't bother you.)

Probably you don't have this problem in America but the really annoying people are those little old ladies who insist on trying to find exact change for the supermarket cashier or the bus conductor. That is where we lose our valuable time.

(I marked all this -except the first paragraph-with the html tags for "irony" but they don't seem to be accepted by your comments function ;-)

You didn't need the tags. :)

Thanks for the (underserved) compliments and yes, I should have remembered old ladies in the check-out line.
