I Don't Like...

  1. I don't like it when people avoid my questions.
  2. I don't like it when I feel taken advantage of.
  3. I don't like it when you ask the lady at at The Great Cookie for $2 worth of snicker doodles and she says, "Is $2.10 Ok?" Noooo! It's not OK! I only got $2!
  4. I don't like it when birds poop on my car when I'm sitting in it. Its not as bad when I'm not in the car. But when I'm actually in it, I feel disrespected.
  5. I don't like it when people call me weird.
  6. I don't like it when you burn the roof of your mouth and you get that little dangly piece of skin. And no matter how much you try to pull at it, it never works because everytime you try to grab it, it disappears but as soon as you stop trying it comes back down... SMH...
  7. I don't like when I'm excited to see someone and I give them a nice warm, "Hey!" and they just go, "hi." It's just rude.
  8. I don't like how the actors on 90210 are supposed to be in 10th grade but they are clearly grown. I don't look like that and I graduated!
  9. I don't like it when people think the world revolves around them.
  10. I don't like always having to be the bigger person.
  11. I don't like when you're close friends with a person and then you guys drift apart.
  12. I don't like when I'm about to say something and then I forget.
  13. I don;t like when people beep at me and yell obscenities from their window, and all I can think to yell back is, "Yeah...Well... You're ugly!!!"
  14. I don't like when people fart under the cover and don't tell you and then you lift it up and you're like, "*Sniff Sniff* did u fart?" "Oh yea. My bad." "Eww!"
    • Alright so I may be guilty of that one. Don't Judge me!!!
  15. I don't like watching movies with people who never get it.
  16. I don't like being broke.
  17. I don't like when people think Gucci Mane is cool... He's not.
  18. I don't like when Beyonce attempts to act. It really upsets me.
  19. I don't like when people try to spit knowledge when they're clearly wrong and haven't done their research.

There's a lot of other things I don't like. But I can't think of anymore right now.

"Excuse me sir... You have a little something hanging there..."

Hypothetically speaking...

How do you tell a customer they've got a little something hanging from their nose?

I mean, quite honestly, it's hard enough telling a friend they have something in their teeth, or on their chin becuase a lot of times they think you're being smart. They get embarrassed and then they get a little attitude like,

"Why didn't you tell me?"

"Umm I just did..."

"Ok but you let me walk around with that on my face this whole time!"

"I just saw it. And besides, I didn't tell you to be a sloppy eater."

Anyway, telling a friend something that simple is difficult enough, but telling a CUSTOMER that they have a BAT IN THE CAVE... That's a whole other level.

There's a lot of different scenarios here. Many different questions.

Do I stop him in the middle of his order and tell him? Do I wait until I'm making his ice cream. Do I wait until I hand him his ice cream? Do I wait until we get to the register?

And then their's a bunch of other questions...

And how do I actually come out and say it? Do I go for the extra polite- "Excuse me sir, you have a little something right there." Do I make a sly hand gesture? Or do i go for the blunt- "Ey yo, you got a boogie."

What if he gets mad? What if he thinks I'm rude? What if he didn't want me to tell him? I mean in actuality, I'm just trying to help you out. I'm sorry, I didn't realize you valued that boogie.

So now here I am, trying to accomplish a public service, and this man doesn't like it! How is he going to show his unappreciation you ask?? He's not going to tip us! After all I went through. The stresses and emotional turmoil of deciding whether or not to let you know about that little dangly thing ya got there and you don't think I deserve a tip... Alright... That's fine...

So I've come to a conclusion...

I'm not telling! If a customer just so happens to have a little something extra on their face, they won't be informed by me. Yep... They can just walk around with that little piece of nose jewelry.

I digress...
