Wednesday Pet Peeves

I'm just wondering, why do so many public bathrooms have the tissue dispenser placed in the absolute worst possible place? Do the (male) contractors laugh out loud when installing it, thinking of us poor ladies being forced to sit sideways or trying to bend our wrist in a way that nature never intended? I mean, come on people. You don't need a degree in ergonomics to get it right, just a little common sense.

And one more pet peeve... To all you fast food drive-through employees out there, what part of "That's all" don't you understand? I don't want the dollar biscuit or the upgraded drink or even the chocolate sundae (and no, I don't want to try the new combo meal today). I'm a big girl and I've been choosing my own meals for a long time now, thank you.

That's all.

I think drive-through employees are more to be pitied than censured. They're required to ask you those questions and get marked down on their performance appraisals if they don't. Though I agree, it's very annoying. Blame the corporate office.

I agree on the TP problem. Contractors are usually men, and just don't think of these things.

Maybe I'll try saying "That's all, I don't want anything else" and see if they still ask me. I bet they will.
