Frisky Sound-Off: What Drives You Crazy?
It’s Friday and I started my morning off ready to tackle the world and get the weekend going with a bang. And then I got on the subway for my morning commute and it was all over. A woman sat down next to me. She had a whole bunch of bags and was spreading out, squishing me into the corner of my seat, my head getting pressed against the subway bar. For those of you who don’t live in NYC, the subway seats are crazy tiny and out of courtesy for your fellow commuters, you must try to make your body as compact as possible. Spreading your legs, letting your bags take up precious room, or pushing, especially during rush hour, is a big-time no-no. This is my number one subway pet peeve: people who take up too much space. I was sooo irritated that I muttered the word, “stop,” almost loud enough for her to hear. Them’s fighting words on the subway. But she didn’t hear me and she did not stop; instead, she started in with my number two subway pet peeve: she pulled out her makeup bag and started putting on foundation! Come on! I don’t want to watch anyone put on their makeup, especially when it’s practically happening on my lap. Do it at home, please. It took all of my strength to make it to my final destination without throwing her compact onto the tracks. OK, I’m done. Phew, I feel much better now. A little bitch session every now and then does me good. I think I am back to being able to enjoy my weekend. So what annoys the crap out of you? Get it off your chest in the comments. After all … it is Friday.
