Things I Just Don't Have Time For

11.11.2013
admittedly, i'm an impatient person.  i am absolutely horrible at waiting.  i don't understand lines or traffic and i'm absolutely miserable if i have to deal with either of them.  at least i'm not alone in this - i know kathy ain't got time for that either.  (for the record, i completely agree with the things on kathy's list.  they're a little more serious than my list, but i'm 100% on board nonetheless.)

7 things i just don't have time for:

waiting for candy crush lives.  omg candy crush, 30 minutes for 1 life?  you're killing me.

high maintenance clothes.  if it says 'dry clean only,' i read it as 'nope, don't buy me.'  i also don't even own an iron or ironing board, so if it's not going to look acceptable straight out of the dryer, i will not buy it.

homeopathic remedies.  i don't doubt that there are all natural ways to improve my headache or calm my allergies.  but if there exists a pill for it, you can bet i'm taking it.  the faster acting the better.

automatic hand dryers.  besides the dyson ones, automatic hand dryers suck. i don't know, in the grand scheme of things, how much better they are for the environment versus paper towels when it comes down to the electricity of the thing.  but i don't exactly care either.  they take forever to dry your hands, which always leads to me just wiping them on my pants anyway.



captcha.  you're crazy if you still have this on your blog.  i cannot read those stupid letters.  sometimes i comment, and then if it says i got the letters wrong, i give up and never leave the comment.  i don't have time to sit there and figure out those damn letters multiple times in a row.  it's bad for my blood pressure.

vacuuming.  someone buy me a damn robot vacuum already!  i am great at organizing and cleaning everything - except the carpet.  i hate to vacuum, it's the worst cleaning task i can imagine.

anyone knocking on my door that wasn't invited.  thank goodness for my apartment building that lets no one in.  but people are guilty of this at my parent's house.  i don't have time for your sales pitch, i'm not interested and i never will be.  i have 10,000 other things i could and should be doing right now, and coming to jesus just isn't one of them.  i'm sure the nuns at my high school would disagree, but there it is.


what don't you have time for?

  1. We're probably in some unofficial race for the most impatient person. I am so terrible about it. If someone stops at a red light and is turning right I get agitated. You're allowed to right on red people!!! I have the shortest fuse imaginable.

  3. I agree with every single thing on this list! I'm glad that I'm not the only person that feels this way!

  4. 1) geek secret: fiddle with your date settings to trick the shit out of candy crush and get more lives ASAP. set your date 1 day ahead, start candy crush but don't press play, go back to date settings and correct the day to today, then go back to candy crush and play. 5 NEW LIVES. you're welcome, world and everyone who reads steph's blog. you probably don't have time for this either but if you do, this is how you do it without waiting all that fucking time which is total bullshit.

    2) samesies. i haven't been to the dry cleaner in like, ever. let's put it this way: i haven't even dry cleaned my WEDDING DRESS from 2004. it's still hanging in the guest room closet and i'm afraid to open the bag for disgusting thing that used to be my dress hanging in there.

    3) for the most part, samesies except that awesome cough syrup i make. for real, this shit works..just not as fast as you like it (takes a whole day to kick in).

    4) hate those. i'll use toilet paper to dry my hands if the dyson ones aren't around

    5) I HATE CAPTCHA. everyone: please turn that shit off. PLEASE!

    6) i hate vacuuming too but i do it but you should get the roomba! it's that robot vacuuming thing where you set it and forget it and it vacuums for you.

    7) i totally ignore the door. i will look out the window and if i don't recognize you or it's not the post office delivering something, i will legit walk away.

  6. i just started playing candy crush and waiting on new lives is BRUTAL! I started playing on my kindle too so when I'm out of lives on my phone, I can play on the kindle...is that bad?

  7. I don't have time for anything it seems!! I've found out that if you play both online and on your phone it sometimes doesn't take away the stuff people send you on one or the other. Yay for double the lives and moves!

  8. I HATE CAPTCHA too and do not use it. But I have a feeling if everyone stopped using it spam on blogs would become a huge problem again.

  9. Oh and there something else I am going to add to this list. And that is bloggers who when they get a comment instead of going to the blog of the blogger who left the comment, reading it and leaving a comment. They respond to every comment on their own blog and boosting and doubling their comments and not paying it forward. It is one thing to answer a question but doing this is just self serving and it is really rude as far as I am concerned. I now scroll through a bloggers comments and if I see a comment from the owner of the blog after every comment left by another blogger I navigate away. Some bloggers do both but this is not often the case.

    1. Yep, I definitely know what you mean. I respond via e-mail, unless you're a 'no-reply' blogger then I respond here. Which, by the way... you are, did you know? Probably cause you're on Google+ but there is a way around that! Either way, I always go back to the commentor's blog :)

  10. I thought moving into the townhouse style apartments in my complex was an awesome idea because it looks more like a house, but I regret that choice every damn day because my neighbors are constantly knocking on the door!! It is particularly annoying at night because I tend to not wear pants at night...ain't nobody got time for that

  11. All of this. This is perfect. I read dry clean clothes the same exact way. And EFF automatic hand dryers. I'd rather shake someone's hand and have them think it's piss than sit there using one. And if I do use one I want to use it all the way and then I always feel bad for hogging it up when there are others waiting behind me.

  12. It's like I wrote this myself. Hand dryers are the WORST and I never answer the door. Everyone hates me for it but I'm sorry, if I'm not expecting you I'm not answering it. You could be an ax murderer.

  13. Definitely the candy crush lives and YES to the hand dryers. I just wish they at least gave you the option for paper towels haha, offer both!!!

  15. Yup I refuse to buy 'dry clean' only clothes and I have managed to burn the last two dresses I attempted to iron so wrinkle-free only please!

  16. Seriously - I'm with on the captcha. WHY!? And I notice a lot of people have captcha AND the moderate the comments before they post...WHY BOTH PEOPLE!?

    ReplyDelete
  17. YES to ALL of the above. I seriously just agree with them all...especially the medicine. If it's fast acting- GIVE me THAT.

  18. I am weird and LOVE vacuuming! Hearing it suck things up makes me sooo happy!
    I never answer the door. Ever!

  19. my vacuum has been broken for over a year. That should tell you about me. ha and seriously, every. single. time. the church ladies come over, I am home and sick as a dog. It is always this older woman who is beyond sweet and I am in my bathrobe. I explained that I love Jesus, we are basically besties and I run a women's group for my church, she prayed a verse for sinners who are sick last time. She is so sweet that I just nod my head and say thanks. hahahaha I think next time I will just hide till they leave.

  20. I'm with you on all of these except for vacuuming. That is the only household chore I don't mind. It takes no time. Laundry on the other hand... ain't nobody got time for that. And I am the most impatient person anyone knows!

  21. I'm commenting again because I see the rest of the list is up annnnd, I still agree! We have the Dyson dryers here at work and most of the time, I never use it. Unless of course I just painted my nails and need to quick dry... ;)

  24. I cannot stand uninvited guests or anyone just "stopping by." So annoying! And hand dryers too. I get freaked out because I can't open the door with a paper towel. And I completely agree with the dry cleaning thing, except that I buy dry clean only stuff anyway and then wash it and get mad when it gets ruined.
