I've got some things bugging me. I know they're trivial, but they're bugging me. They are (in no particular order):
1. I'm miffed because I loaned quite a few things to someone and they came back with a majority of the items damaged, with not a word from the borrower. These are not items that I use on a regular basis, but you'd think if you loaned something to someone, it would come back in the same condition it left you.
2. I'm miffed because Eight has a friend that always calls Eight to play and then says "Oh, can I come to your house to play?" I don't want to be some crabby old mother but I just wasn't brought up that it's polite to do that. And I know the kid lives in this dinky apartment and it's not really that great and he does just want someone to play with but why does it always have to be at our house?
3. It REALLY bothers me when someone says "Can I ask you a favor?" I don't mind at all doing favors for people, but I wish they'd just flat out ask me instead of emailing me with only "favor" in the title or asking me that. Again, petty, but it just irritates the living bejeebus out of me. When I used to work retail people would come up and ask me "Can I ask you a question?" and I'd just laugh and say "Yep, you just did. Bye!"
Not the best attitude today, I know. I'm putting this out here to shame myself into having a better attitude.
And it's terrible, because we had such a great, long weekend. We saw a lot of friends and did a lot and we're lucky to be able to do so. And I'm still cranky. Hopefully my venting will get rid of this.
