Boy, have I ever been in a funk lately. What is going on? Every single little thing is annoying me. Work is annoying me, friends are annoying me, American Airlines is annoying me. They have changed my flight to Hawaii 5 times since I booked it. Now, I have a lovely 5 hour layover on the way home. The original schedule was perfect - only an hour wait between flights. I do have to say the only reason I'm flying AA was that I had all those miles from my Aussie trip to use. It won't happen again, I assure you.
I really need to work on my attitude - people at work are picking up on it. I just want things done right, and it seems no one else wants to do them right. My mom has always said I'm a little salmon swimming upstream - that I need to go with the flow. But for example, if there's a process, you need to follow that process. If you need an exception to that process every time you do something, that is taking advantage, and it's wrong. And if everyone goes outside of the process, why is there a freakin' process? My dad also tells me that "life's not fair" - so then parents shouldn't raise their kids to play fair. If you want to train them for the real world, teach them to be ruthless and out for themselves. Otherwise, they're in for a world of hurt.
Like on the Amazing Race the other night, the Cho brothers fell behind in the race because they didn't butt in front of the taxi line of normal, everyday people waiting. But Alabama - rudely, I might add - made the queue mad and jumped the line. "Being polite sucks sometimes" said the Cho's - and they're right.
