Most of the time I’m a rather stable, level-headed person until I run into someone or something that makes me lose my patience and have what I call ‘a moment.’ It’s those moments we all have where you look at someone when they did something and you’re like, really dude … what the frack?
Some days you just gotta say what’s on your mind. I’m having a moment today and just have a few things that I want to say …
1. Sunday morning dog barking: I have this neighbor who lives four doors down who has an annoying dog. I’m a total dog person and there’s a rare dog out there that I don’t want to walk over to and pet on the head. But not my neighbor’s dog.
I have no idea what kind of dog it is. All I know is that dog barks ALL. THE. TIME. For some reason, my neighbor leaves him outside in their backyard even though they know he barks. He barks when someone walks by (with our without a dog), he barks when he sees a squirrel, he barks when he sees a leaf drop.
For a full week, that dog woke me up every morning about 10 minutes before my alarm went off. I didn’t say anything to my neighbor because I had to get up early but then when it happened on Sunday morning at 7am, I had enough. If I can hear your dog four doors down with my windows closed, there’s no reason you can’t hear your own dog barking from inside your own house.
What the frack people? Open the door and bring the freaking dog inside …
2. Do you drive like this?: You already know how I feel about the way tourists drive in my city, but what about the people who live here? I have no idea if this was an old person or a new driver but here I was driving along on the straightaway part of the road. I see this car on a side street getting ready to turn right on the road. I swear there was no one about ten miles ahead of me or behind me and that freaking driver waited until I was about 2 feet away from them before they pulled out in front of me.
What the frack people? You waited this long to pull out, can’t you at least wait for me to pass by you?
3. When stuff won’t work: I just recently upgraded to a new phone with all the new gadgets in it. I’m still trying to figure out what half the stuff does in it but for the most part, it’s been pretty cool to play with. Of course, its all fun and games until the thing decides that it doesn’t want to work.
Less then a week after I got the phone, something weird happened and it wouldn’t make a phone call. I messed it with, touched this, checked that setting, screwed with it for over 30 minutes until I just wanted to throw it out the window. I felt like one of those old folks you see in the Jitterbug commercial – I just want a phone that’s suppose to make a phone call! Why is that so hard to ask for?
After several four-letter words came out of my mouth, I just pulled out the battery and rebooted the freaking thing. What the frack people? The more stuff you put in our phones, the less it seems to work like a phone.
Anything that bugs you where you want to say ‘What the frack people?’
