Monday Rant: My List Of Peeves.

I haven’t had a Monday morning rant for some time now, and I thought today would be a good enough day as any to do it. Especially seeing as I woke up to people running around like chicken little making all sort of pointless comment online after the spate of shootings in Brisbane over night. One of which is literally metres from where I live.

Anyway, here is my Top 5 list of pet peeves.

  1. Coffee Too Hot To Drink.
    I am very specific when I order a coffee. Usually it is the biggest size they have, with a double or triple shot, depending on the size of the cup,  the vegan version of their soy milk (remember, not all soy milk is vegan), and the most important part, COOLER.
    I am a little bit precious when I drink coffee, in the way that I would like to be able to actually drink it. Not be forced to sip it for the next 3 hours because the temperature is hot enough to melt the teflon coating of a frying pan.
    I do understand that the milk has to be heated to 60C for some reason, though there is nothing to say you can’t put a little bit of cold soy in the top, so I don’t burn my precious tongue.
  2. Umbrellas.
    Not the umbrella as such, just those people who insist on walking along a crowded street when it is only looking like it might drizzle a bit.
    Those out there who don’t really care what damage their brolly inflicts on people, they wave it around, it bobs up and down all over the place. The unfortunate part is that the little pointy metal things at the end tend to be at the same level as my eyes are. Personally, I’d love to see umbrellas being prohibited from use if there are more than 3 people within a 20 metre radius.
    Don’t get me started on those who bring a golf umbrella to a sun shower…
    Come one people, it’s not the 1920’s where the umbrella meant everything, why can’t we all wear the ever fashionable japara?
