First world problems… (are still sodding problems, so shuddup)

by missmaudy

Today was one of those days. A conga line of minor irritations that, individually, would amount to no more than a mild eye roll and/or a shrug of the shoulders. However, in a seemingly endless line of one teensy little thing after another, today amounted to a slithering slimy pile annoyance.

Must have been the wind.

A misplaced dry-cleaner, who, once located, managed to misplace dry-cleaning. Well, a third of it, but still. Irritating.

Late breakfast of coffee that was not only luke warm, but under caffeinated, coupled with yesterday’s bun. Disappointing.

An important document left on the printer, three floors away from a meeting. Annoying.

Cancelled another meeting (which wasn’t too bad in and of itself) but had to reschedule. Rescheduling took the combined efforts of four people, and the best part of an hour. Frustrating.

An express lunch that took more than an hour to arrive. Vexing.

A letter that had to go in the mail today missed the post by less than the amount of time it takes for the post office staff to walk back to the counter from locking the front door. Maddening.

A forgotten errand, a missed deadline, chaos and mayhem at home (both literally and artistically speaking)… no chocolate in the cupboard. The list just goes on and on. Trivial irritations, every single one.

It’s Friday. A new morning dawns in a ridiculously short period of time, and it cannot possibly be as irritating and tediously frustrating as today.
