My Two (new) Pet Peeves

For those of you who know me, I have a lot of pet peeves. There's just a lot about human behavior that annoys me... and to be quite honest, there are things that even I do which fall into that category. You know, just one of those little Alyssa-isms that make me special. Regardless, here are my two new pet peeves.

1. Providing for yourself. If you have some sort of special dietary needs, then you need to provide for yourself. That would be like asking the passenger next to you if you could have some of their blood pressure or seizure medicine because you forgot yours. No dice. So when I offer you a pizza, don't ask if I have any without cheese. Last time I checked, pizza without cheese is a fancy, oddly shaped bread stick. And no, I'm not hiding the bread sticks in the back either.

2. ATC. Right now I should be headed on my way to the van to go to the airport for our on time departure and on time arrival. But there's weather, and in the NYC metro area, if there's even a cloud in the sky they act like Chicken Little and put a ground stop on everything. As of right now, we've got a three hour delay. And a half hour van time delay. Now, I know math is not my strong suit, but that just doesn't add up.

3. Four day trips. I'm tired, cranky, and my chickens are cooked. So looking forward to my three days off starting TOMORROW. This is the last four day I pick up in a long ass time - and last LAX I choose to do. I'm done now. (No worries SMH - SNA is not on my shit list, nor is SAN if you're in the mood for a road trip and excessive drinking with a sweet hotel room to crash in. Don't lie to me, I know you're game.)

Did I say two? I'm sure this list can go on but I'll save it for another rainy day.
