Anyway, ranting...why do I allow myself to procrastinate, even when the task I must perform isn't particularly difficult? It would've been good to know a lot earlier that my printer was out of ink, therefore preventing me from printing out an application I need to fill out. Grr. Of course, if I were working this summer I might be less inclined to procrastinate, because it might get rid of some of the summer laziness factor. But that would get fixed if the people who claim they're willing to give me a job would actually, y'know, train me and call me in to work for them and stuff. >:(

DAMMIT.

I was writing this post, right? And it was pretty good, right? And then I hit this awkward combination on my keyboard that I still don't even know exactly which combination of keys it really was, right? And then it highlighted my post while I was typing, right? And then I had a single letter in place of my post. Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaage.

Dental hygienists are evil. I don't really care how much you love your husbands, especially when you have my jaw pried open and filled with instruments and a syringe. Talking about how little sleep you got last night doesn't help much either.

Ouch. That sounds annoying...your printer is a jerk. :P

Printing stuff makes me think of another thing that annoys me: I hate it when I'm writing something, e.g. an essay, and the last page only has one line on it. It's such a waste of paper, for one thing, and also kind of misleading for another thing. I may be holding six pieces of paper, but there aren't really six pieces-of-paper's worth of writing! </meaningless pet peeve>

My dentist talks to me (and asks me questions) while doing his work too. >_>

I also hate how hair stylists feel a need to hold a conversation with me while standinig behind me, while my head is bowed down, while they're snapping sharp scissors around and making comments to other hair stylists. I hear they're taught to keep conversations going in whatever training they recieve. I can't fathom why someone thought that was a good idea. (I can see chatting with other hair stylists, but it seems so awkward for the person getting their hair cut.)

Lone lines bug the hell out of me too. I always just either adjust the font or margins slightly, or go back and rewrite any paragraphs that I can to remove "widows" (copyeditor term for when the last line of a paragraph contains only one word).

As would I. I generally have little desire to small talk with strangers who I know I won't meet again until the next time they spend 5-10 minutes cutting my hair.
Currently I'm solving it by just keeping it very short and doing it myself.

I would feel insanely awkward sat in silence getting my hair cut.
I mean, I stumble awkwardly through the small talk anyway, but it's marginally less awkward than I imagine silence would be.

Probably makes the small talk more interesting.


Edit:

Rant: Went from a potential trifecta to third place in two days. I wouldn't be as disappointed if there wasn't such a clear drop off from second to third place.

Edit #2:

Rant - think my car is fucked up. It was very hot here Monday, and some of the pavement buckled on the interstate. I was driving home at 11:30, and didn't see a spot where it had buckled. I hit it going maybe 60 mph. Now my car starts shaking if I get over 60-65, and the steering wheel has an obvious vibration.

I don't mind when they talk to me, I just dislike when they ask questions that can't be answered with yes or no sounds. Its very difficult to reply beyond that with a hand in my mouth scraping at my teeth. <.<

I've had a couple late days at work. After one of these late days, my office-mate's laptop mysteriously had a nasty nick in the screen.

"Hey Rick, did you take it upon yourself to destroy my computer last night?" No...

Nothing was said of it after that really, though I was more than a little bit curious how it happened. This morning when I get into work, my office-mate's chair is broken for no apparent reason, having been fine when he left last night.

I worked until 9pm last night. He left at 5.

I want to know who the fuck is doing this.

Yes! :D

I'm shy and quiet, so I'm not particularly big on talking to people I don't know well. The fact that I'm facing away from them, may have my face tilted down and may have hair draped over my face makes speaking to them extra awkward. Music from the overhead speakers, other hair stylists' blow dryers, other conversations occuring next to us and facing away from the hair stylist also causes problems with them being able to hear me, so I have to strain to talk loudly and repeat myself a lot while I'm answering their questions.

I'm paying to get my haircut, not to be forced to socialize. =/ If I wanted to talk, I'd ask them questions or talk without being prompted.

Would rather remain silent too. Speculates that it would become really dull for some people though, after a while. Spends the entire day cutting a mannequin’s hair if no one speaks. Can only depend on other coworkers for conversation for a limited amount of time before it devolves into a discussion about the speck of dirt in the corner that someone dragged in. Leaves the stylist/dentist/whatever to invent entertainment for themselves, like a speed game. May cut too many corners, like an ear.

Seems healthy for a dentist type to get some conversation too. Removes some of the self-loathing when people are willing to speak to you. Dreads visiting to the dentist. Knows that I do. Could you tolerate causing pain and being resented by people for a living? Could fabricate all sorts of judgments if the other person just stares at you and winces occasion. Compound that over just one year. Weighs heavily on you.

Ah, I hadn't thought of how it might be boring for them if they were only talking to their co-workers all day. =/ I'm boring and like weird things though, so I don't provide much entertainment in small-talk-type conversations. I suppose it's good that most of the customers probably are more social/talkative.

One of my friends goes to a barber where when a female comes in all the conversations die (or so he claims). Maybe I should just go there, haha. All I do is get my hair trimmed, so it's not like I need someone with crazy skills to do it.

There's a reason for that. You try starving your body, your body is going to react by lowering your metabolism and storing energy in the form of fat. Eat your normal amount, and your body will just carry on burning it off, happy as larry. It's like feeding oxygen to a fire; it'll burn twice as brightly for half as long. That's why starvation diets are considered somewhat suboptimal.
