- People who buy things simply because they are on sale. They’re going broke saving money. It’s sad.
- Watching young stars flush their lives down the toilet, thus proving everyone right.
- When my Costco membership is due & then added onto my already large-ish total at checkout.
- Seeing old friends on Facebook and seeing how much our lives have gone in completely different directions.
- Anyone over the age of 19 standing on street corners, twirling signs and advertising for a pizza place or a “HUGE CLOSEOUT SALE!” at the nearby electronics store. If I do see an older person doing this I pretend like they are the owner/manager of the business. See, they just wanted a break from the doldrums of their office so they told the 18-year-old-or-under kid whose job that really is to take an extra break that day and he’d take over for a while. You know, just to get some fresh air. I have to pretend this or the tears start to well up.
- Seeing I have less than 1/3 of my Chipotle burrito left and I hadn’t been absolutely savoring every bite.
- Phone calls from the vice principal.
- Purchasing toilet paper, deodorant, tampons and other non-fun necessities. Such a waste of good, hard-earned cash.
- Driving by the new Ikea that is being built 5 minutes from my house, reading the huge sign that says "COMING FALL 2011," doing the math and realizing that is still an entire year away. I go even further and imagine the insane crowds that will be storming that place day & night for the first year (at least) it's open as well. That makes a good two years before I'll be able to handle going and purchasing all the cheap but stylish things my little heart desires.
