Just plain hate.

My hates today, in no particular order:

1. tailgaters. I hate drivers who will not go with the flow. No matter whom they get behind or how fast that person is going, they ride bumpers until they can pass the person. obnoxious. note: I get out of anyone's way who wants to pass me-you wanna go faster? Have at it. But some people cannot be behind anyone and they need to stop fucking driving.

2. People in stores who have no concept that other people are in the store and they may need to get to an item. I am not talking about people who take a minute to look at things and compare items--I'm talking about people who park in front of shit and look at their cell phones or are generally oblivious when someone else may be trying to access something in front of them.

3. I have an acquaintance on FB who was my neighbor approximately 15 years ago. I never hear from her unless she wants me to donate to one of her church related causes. She just asked me for my address again and I'm sure a mailer is coming about some mission critical Xtian indoctrination mission in another country, some dumb fundraiser for one of the holy grand brats or some MLM type venture. Seriously, do people have no shame? I would be embarrassed but I guess that means I'm not an MLM type person.

4. Anyone under 25 who calls themselves a "seasoned professional" on LinkedIn. Someone I know has a kid who is 24 and he is touting himself as a "senior influencer" or "senior strategist." Just stop it already.

5. "Influencers." Not a real job. Just stop it already.

I realize today I have another hate, and it often is from Southern women:

Women with "little girl" voices. You are a grownup--talk like a damn grownup, please.

I share that same visceral reaction to artificially childlike voices...in adults of any gender.

There's a joke between the spouse and I that I subconsciously trained an acquaintance of ours to modulate her voice when around me. But it's true. I certainly wish her no ill, but we're not really friends either. She seems to think I'm cool, though, and so we'll chat when at parties together. And she uses a regular adult voice and conversational cadence with me. I honestly don't know how this happened really.

I hate that too. I also hate the "mom voice" that a lot of women put on when they are with their kids. Or when they talk to their kids in the third person, like "Mommy wants you to put that down, MacKinzlee."

Allow me to add an introvert spin to this hate: when someone is standing right where I need to be and refuses to move, and because I don't want to talk to anyone when I shop to say "excuse me," I may go all the way around the other end of the aisle in order to have access to the other side of this person to reach the thing I want. But by the time I do this, the motherfucker in question has relocated themselves juuuust enough to be in my way again. I know this is partly my own fault for being unsocial, but goddamn it I want to brain these assholes with a sack of rice just so they get out of my fucking way already.
