People suck

There's a reason I like animals better than people. Mankind is fucking annoying. And by mankind, of course, I often mean womankind.

Case in point, I had to go to the post office today to get a stamp. One lousy little stamp. Now, there's a machine there that sells individual stamps. It even takes pennies! But, today, the 39 cent stamps were sold out. And, needless to say, there were huge lines at the windows.

There was a supervisor by the machines and I asked if they would be filling the stamps up any time soon, and she said no, but I could purchase an individual regular stamp at the commemorative stamps window, where they sell special issues that collectors buy.

There were only 4 people at this window (most people don't know you can buy regular stamps there, I guess) so I thought I had it made.

Alas, it was not to be. There was a woman ahead of me, who spent, and I am not exaggerating, at least 15 minutes on her order. “Oh, I don't know about these, I like the purple better, they're prettier. What about flag stamps, I don't need them, but they would be good to have too.”

So fucking annoying.

And I mean, really – who gives a rat's ass about stamps? Does anyone actually notice if they are pretty? Don't you just rip the envelopes open?

I was ready to strangle this fucktard by the end of her decision-making. Fifteen minutes to buy stamps.

There used to be a cheesy singing group called Up With People. I swear, if I could carry a tune, I would form a new group, Down With People, the rat bastards.

I don't think anyone really looks at stamps. The most thought I ever put into them was what stamps to use for our weddings. And even that was about .4 seconds.

Man: can I help you?
Me: I need 64 stamps.
Man: What design would you like?
Me: (points) I'll take those.

Who the fuck cares? Would anyone even have noticed if I got the car stamps for our invites? I doubt it. Some people are retarded.

I've heard of Up With People, one of my friends was in it. Hehe. I don't know how she managed, because she can't sing and she can't act. Maybe that's why she was only in it for one season. :)

lol not a hipster I was going to say I think women actually worry about what stamps to put on their wedding invites, but you're right, I doubt anyone even notices. The guys def. don't, but who knows - maybe other catty women do.

Ok, men are annoying too, but at other things than what stamps to buy, which I will admit is pretty stupid! :)

Ohmygod - Up With People!! I had forgotten about them, weren't they the ones with the matching sweaters and shirts and they were ALWAYS smiling! Not A Hipster, I can't believe you have a friend who was actually in that group! That's so funny. :)

How about being behind someone who has 8 items in the 5 or less express lane at the supermarket? That's annoying.

Sarah - no one asked for your opinion, don't be so judgemental.

they call me pebbles said...

The post office is right up there with motor vehicles dept. as places you don't want to be at any time!!! :)

sarah said...

lol oh please anonymous don't even start with that crap. I am so NOT judgemental, especially about that topic. I just don't think you even know J and shouldn't be commenting on things you don't know about. That's all I'm saying and I'm not going to have an argument with you about it. Bye.
