my name is NOOOOT that difficult, really.

i went to einsteins bagels this morning for coffee and a cookie (which resulted in my being made fun of by the cashier, more on that in a sec..), and a bagel for later, and the lady asked my namefor my order. "aubrey." i say, "a-u-b-r-e-y." she grins and nods, and hands me my slip, with the name "abril" printed on the bottom. i grimace a smile at her and go to check out...

i get up there, the cashier asks if there is anything else i want. "the largest cup of coffee on earth", i say, "and..." i look through the plethora of cookies on the side and snag what i thought was chocolate chip (ended up being oatmeal raisin) "and this." the cashier chuckles and says 'you must be getting ready for a BIG BAD day' *chuckle, chuckle* *says in big booming voice* "GIMME YOUR LARGEST CUP OF COFFEE!" *then says the following in an eeeety bitty voice* "and a cooookee." he chuckles some more, gives me my change, then i hear the guy behind me... "my day isnt going to be quite as bad, so i'll just take the regular sized coffee..." i walk to the condiment stand, their harmonizing chuckles floating behind...

How much do we hate random people who feel the need to comment on your actions, purchases, whatever... That is a pet peeve of mine.

i'm a quiet person out in public, for whatever reason, unless i'm drinking, then you can't shut me up ;)

other than that, i don't look at or pay attention to anyone else around me, and hope and wish they'd do the same...

That annoys me too. When I hit my heroin dealer in the morning, all the little crack heads are giggling at me further down the block.

have you thought of going through a new one? mine works out of a privately owned estate, no crackheads to giggle at you. we can make a trip together in the morning to save on gas, if you'd like.

it's an unfortunate national trait that lots of Americans don't have a sense of irony.. people like you are okay but people like those guys in the shop.. well, they just don't get it, do they?

and as for names, imagine trying to spell 'Lee Chrimes' to people.. especially when I can't seem to pronounce the 'r' without making it sound like an 'i'..

i used to sit next to a coworker of mine from wales, and i would hear her trying to pronounce her letters all the time, too.

Welsh people always sound like they're trying to clear their throats o_0

An American friend of mine I spoke to recently said I have the kind of British accent she was expecting. I don't have much of the local accent in me (thankfully)..

ha ha, i remember you telling me that day we were actually TALKING over yahoo all the different english accents there really are, and how you scream at the tv that you don't sound like that, since only the awful ones get shown.

They sounds like assholes. Yesirree Aub.

As with sciurism, unsolicited comments from the peanut gallery are a pet peeve of mine as well.

I probably would've "accidently" stepped on somebody's foot...
Oops, I guess I AM having a "big bad" day.

And Aubrey is NOT difficult at all. I wish I could get people to spell my name right. R-A-M-O-N-A...that's not hard is it?

lol - at least i was in a mood to join in the hilarity a bit.

although, it WAS made more difficult by the fact that i hadn't had any coffee yet.
Sep. 5th, 2002 09:58 am (UTC)

Sep. 9th, 2002 12:07 pm (UTC)

Re: C is for butt cicking.. :-D
