as salaamu alaykum,
Just need a little space to vent, hope you all don't mind... and you are welcome to join in
Here goes... Annoying Things, aka Things that Make Me Want to
- People you haven't heard from in a while who get in touch with you out of the blue and ask for updates about your life... but then don't write back with reciprocal information when you ask them the same
-- People who write facebook status messages that are intentionally obscure hoping to elicit comments/attention. Ex. "I can't believe it." Can't believe what??? Just say it foo or don't say anything at all.
-- People who think sensitivity is a sign of weakness or lack of intelligence. Especially in children.
-- People who never write back to emails. Just write and say you can't do it, don't want to, are not interested, need more time, etc. Give the other person closure!
-- Popular authors who get to the NY Times Bestsellers list multiple times, who just get lazy (or run out of ideas?) and end up with predictable, formulaic writing that wastes your time/money
-- Unwarranted advice on parenting
woo I think that does it for now. thanks for the virtual therapy session
