Hateful Things

I have come to see the most annoying thing in my known universe to be having to urinate as soon as I get out of the shower. It’s like dropping your clothes in the mud on the way back from the laundromat. This, for me, is second only to people chatting on their cell phones on busses and trains. I have no problem with people talking on their cell phones in these places. Perhaps they need to coordinate the night or let someone know that they are running late or running early. But chatting is quite annoying. It’s worse when all I hear is “really? wow” and other such utterances that let me know that I’m clearly listening to the wrong half of the conversation. I don’t think it would bother me at all if both halves of the conversation were there. If someone was going to talk loud enough for me to hear, I’d at least like to hear both sides.
