Question

Things That Make You Mad


At breakfast this AM. Sat down, waitress asked my if I wanted coffee, I said sure, she poured me a cup and handed me a menu.
Drinking my coffee, reading the menu. I notice there was no price for plain old, regular coffee, so I asked,
"she says, $2.39, what, is that expensive?" First, I felt ripped off because I was already drinking it, so I couldn't say NFW, then I got mad (@ the restaurant chain).
Since when is deceiving customers SOP?

What makes you mad?

Lack of follow through. Either handle it or let me know you cant.

Blowing it off completely makes me more than mad.

By blood, I'm 100% Italian. So everything makes me angry !!

On the job, not much pisses me off more than laziness & the whole standing around and texting thing.

Or have them stop mid-stream in your face-to-face conversation to text someone... no different than if the person was there and they just stopped talking to you mid-stream to talk to someone else...

People giving me sh*t because they have their heads up their butts. I'm pretty sure the pedestrian in a crosswalk in dark clothes I DID NOT run over one night was pretty happy I stopped. The guy behind was honking and yelling - I got as far as putting it in neutral and setting the parking brake, then thought about not getting bailed out until morning.

Re: Things That Make You Mad


When you hear the line "the check is in the mail, i'll send another one, if you get both please send one back" when you know the first one was never sent, and probably never will be!

A certain week out of each month when the Mrs. just seems to piss me off...

Re: Things That Make You Mad


Texting has to be number 1 pizzer.
I saw a armed guard get out of an armoured car, walking in to make a pick up with his face buried and both hands on his texting device.
Geez, if texting his GF is more important than his life, he needs a new career.
