I've been on the verge of Grumpy lately. Sometimes even over the verge. So, in true grublet form, here is a list of things I hate most these days.
1 - 68 hrs of night shifts in a one week period
2 - Scoliosis
3 - Spinal surgeons' wait list times. 2-3 YEARS for a CONSULT?! Come on.
4 - Men who get married 8 months after their wife dies without giving a damn about the kids
5 - Gas prices. And fuel mileage on gas vehicles.
6 - Sharing a house with an almost non-shift worker. We hardly even live together anymore. Just share the same house.
7 - That Dad has to get another job to pay for his habit. Namely - farming. Now he's a floodway expansion project employee on top of all the farm work. Also, that Mom has to work at all. And that she has a stupid boss.
8 - Dogs who eat their beds. Bad dog, Bentley!
9 - Sleeping when it's sunny out.
10 - 2 hrs of commuting in addition to 12 hr shifts
11 - Families who refuse to let go for dying parents. A simple goodbye and permission to let go would send him straight to heaven.
12 - Church politics. Women in ministry, recognized or not, have influenced me more than all of the pompous EMC'ers that sit on the board to keep women out put together.
13 - Fake nice. Love me or hate me. But don't pretend to love me when you hate me.
I believe I've created a Tuesday Thirteen. I know the rules are for Thursdays, but I've never been one to follow rules. So there.
