Frustrations..

September 1, 2008 9:47am CST
You are in cinema and this very often happens to me, a very tall person will sit directly in front of me, now i know i am not very tall, only 163cm but still, it is very frustrating.. Or end up with kids sitting behind you, kicking at the seat. At the shop or post office being stuck behind someone counting out lots of coins, then keep dropping them.. taking forever. Or behind someone going through bag looking for many coupons worth few pence, in fact one of times a coupon was rejected and the customer kept on about it, ended up in such a discussion as the customer was not convinced she could not use it at that shop.. it must of only been worth 10p off Why make such a fuss, i felt like giving her what the coupon was worth hehe anymore frustrations while out? or share what you think about mine

I prefer to see the beauty in situations! For example, each time I'm at a concert stuck behind somebody taller than me, I think back to a Heckler article published in an SMH newspaper that said something like, 'Even though we'd arrived a good half hour earlier than the band went on stage, this did not deter the tallest man in Sydney from plonking right in front of us, then calling over the rest of the basketball team!' So I usually think about that and it makes me laugh in those situations. Things that do annoy me, though, are people who clip their nails or pick their noses on the train. It's disgusting. I don't know why it's always myself who sees these things, but it is. Old people doing things that make them seem really old annoy me - I can pretend they're just normal people (lol) otherwise. Also people who get ahead when by rights they possibly are less entitled than others (or mainly myself). I get pretty jealous that way.

studentkelly you know something, one day you will be old too and I hope a whole lot of young punks tell you loudly you are doing something that makes you look old. grow up and grow some compassion too. you need it from the sounds of things.

I try not to get frustrated by things like that. I usually will just have a blas laughing at the situations at hand. What can you do? Just take evrything as it comes and let it roll off your back or give them the 10p, LOL!

hi mandykaren I was stuck in line behind a lady who got into a long drawn out argument over the validity of her coupons and how the clerk had already rung up her groceriers all wrong. finally the clerk in the next aisle over told me to come to her aisle so gladly I went and when I left the same lady was still fighting with the poor checker. wow what a time. I had stood there for a good thirty minutes with ten people lined up behing me.
