A Short List
Things I don't deal well with:
---whiny people (constantly whiny; not the occasional bad-day whiny)
---stupid people (again, constantly; not the occasional lapse)
---things that are cloyingly religious. Especially if they involve poems that are forced to rhyme.
---technology not working because some company is too concerned with its proprietary interests to remember its customers' needs.
Today, each and every one of the above played its part to test my patience. My patience has won, by the slimmest of margins.
I'll spare you the details. Let's just say a certain talisman got quite a workout.
