Things I hate today:

Politics. But thatís no different from any other day.

Overpriced beer. Cigarettes. Morbid obesity. And Lima beans.

I bought (4) 10-packs of wooden pencils.

The yellow ones that are ubiquitous.

The lead is broken but cannot be seen so after I sharpen them and use them a little bit the lead falls out because it's already broken.

What's odd is that 3 different brands have the broken lead.

I hate it it when the already broken lead falls out.

It annoys me.

So I threw all of them in the trash bag and bought a 5-pack of mechanical lead pencils.

With them I'm happy.

No more wooden pencils for me.

I hate mendacious politicians.

Oops!

When I make  bean soup I'll throw in a a handful of lima beans.

Mine have erasers too.

I also have the mechanical pencils architects use.

 They use very thick leads that are ~5 " long that can be sharpened to a very fine point.

Just get surgical gloves thru walmart or almost anywhere to handle the meat. No biggie.

Right about now, I really hate the coronavirus and having to stock up on non perishable food and disinfectant and face masks (which were sold out, luckily, I have a friend who stocked up and gave us some). And I hate reading the Chinese news of all the people dying and the doctors in Wuhan dying and not having food while working 24/7 to save lives because the food delivery people wonít go near the hospital, and because the doctors themselves are under quarantine and the transportation system is shut down, they canít go home.  And the major Wuhan hospitals have run out of basic medical supplies like face masks and the kits needed to test for the virus. (Red Cross and Alibaba have reportedly stepped in to make sure the doctors are fed and they are trying to source medical supplies from other parts of China and from medical manufacturers that sell on the Alibaba platform. Alibaba will pay for the goods and ship things for free to the Wuhan hospitals.)

And a coworker just sent a message that people are going through the trash looking for used face masks to resell, so she recommends cutting up the face masks before throwing them away. Itís ridiculous. If I were the swearing kind of person, this would be an appropriate time to break out a few expletives.

On a lighter note I really hate the electric seat mover in my husband's car.  It is slow to begin with and even slower when it's cold out.  A manual one would be much faster and more convenient.

I hate wasting plastic :)

Really though, the meat won't hurt you. I grew up with the notion that raw meat should be handled as if it's poison until it's cooked, but it's not nearly as dangerous as some people would have you believe. Putting on a new pair of gloves every time you touch it sounds like a lot of unnecessary work to me and gloves with meat juice on them will make your trash stink the next day.

I do too. Was thinking about looking for something reusable (if such a thing exists (and is safe for food prep).

I've seen these, but they seem to be for cleaning. Is there a version for prepping meat that anybody uses?

Biodegradable looks interesting...I'd prefer re-usable, but that's probably less safe. Thanks!

People who park on the sidewalk.

Just saw a mom & stroller that had to go into the street to get by. All because someone wants to avoid the low possibility that their car gets sideswiped on the street.
Metal scratches are more important than people? I don't get it.

What is the purpose of reusable gloves for preparing meat? Rather than sanitizing a pair of gloves between uses, wouldn't it be easier to just sanitize your hands?

Of course...if it didn't make me gag to handle it. It's not logical - just something I hate!

Pharmaceutical commercials, especially the ones with a line like "Don't use [drug name] if you are allergic to [drug name]."

I don't like it when there's a bike lane, and automobiles drive half in it/half in their own lane.  Yelled at a lady this morning who was sliding into the bike lane I was occupying.  Probably not her fault, it's hard to concentrate on driving while texting with the phone on your lap.  :P

I don't know how many people, with a phone glued to their ear, that I have avoided hitting with my car because they step out to cross the street NOT even looking to see if traffic is coming their way. What is so important that people can't put their phones down while walking or driving?
