Want to bitch about three really trivial things?
Or four if absolutely necessary.
Here are mine at the moment:
1. When I pass through a self-closing door in a public setting or workplace and hold it open for the person behind me, I expect that person to follow me and hold it in turn, not squeeze past me in the open doorway and leave me still holding it. Damn.
2. When someone writes “Sorry, I couldn’t resist,” I always wish they had. Especially when a terribly obvious joke or wisecrack or an especially awful pun is involved.
3. When a speaker takes questions at the end of a talk, there always seems to be someone who seizes the opportunity to ask a long, detailed question about a unique personal situation, holding the entire group hostage for the duration, instead of sticking to questions that could conceivably be of interest to someone besides themselves.
There. That’ll do it for the moment. How about you?
