What are your top three pet peeves?
People who act like they are above others, where do they get off? We are all human beings and thus we all have flaws. No human is perfect and we all bleed blood, crap, cry, eat and sleep. We all struggle, though they vary based on circumstances and resources, no one’s life is free from problems, difficulties or shortcomings. Even if you are richer, smarter, or more successful, remember what it took for you to get where you are now. It’s highly unlikely that you reached your heights without the help of anyone else. So why not pay it forward and help someone else? Why not humble yourself and acknowledge that as quickly as you gained your accolades, wealth and possessions, you’re not immune from it all being taken away. Additionally, we all die without the ability to take our success, possessions, or outer beauty with us.
If you are going to take employment in a position where your primary role entails dealing with people or serving customers on a daily basis, you should truly consider whether you can remain courteous and polite (even if you don’t always get that courteousness back in return). I can’t stand rude customer service representatives, either on the phone or in person. I understand you may hate your job, or you’ve had a long day/week, but please do not take it out on me (especially when I’m polite to you). Why take a job constantly dealing with people if you are not a sociable person? Why go into customer service if you can’t stand people? I get that you have to deal with a lot of crazy situations and I get that everyone isn’t always nice to you, but that shouldn’t mean you have to take it out on those who aren’t rude and who are respectful. It’s not fair and it doesn’t make sense.
Food is nourishment and we need it to live and thrive, but it should also have flavor and taste good. Bland food is so anticlimatic, such a drag. It’s like drinking a glass of room temperature water. It’s like watching a documentary on the History Channel: you may learn something but you’ll most likely fall asleep due to boredom. What’s the harm in adding a little garlic or pepper or even sea salt? Spice can make food come alive. It makes the eating experience way more enjoyable whether it’s vegetables or a big, juicy burger. They should all have some seasoning and flavor and never be bland.
