Peeves

The NBA season is over, and now begins the emptiness that will last until September 7th. I didn't particular care about or for either Dallas or Miami. What peeved me more was the choice of Tom Petty for the Finals music. Tom Petty? I've nothing against Tom Petty, but when I think basketball, Tom Petty does not immediately spring to mind. (Alonzo Mourning is a stunningly gorgeous man, by the way.)

I was subjected to another peeve of mine today. I was in a public restroom, watching yet another neurotic person wash their hands and then try not to touch anything on the way out. Really, people, because most do wash their hands, the inner doorknob has less germs than the outer doorknob. Anyway, this person was so obsessed with not touching any fixtures with her clean hands that she gave up trying to turn off the water. Yup, that's right, she left the water running rather than touch the faucet. Guess that's okay, we have so much water here in the desert after all.

I really don't get people that do that. I'll refrain from saying something cruder.

Sorry, I can't rouch the mouse button to take me elsewhere. It has germs.

Didn't she ever hear of a paper towel? Or, if the place was equipped with a hot air dryer, then toilet paper?

Gah.

This whole thing peeves me the most when mothers are passing their neurosis to their kids. I've seen mothers scream, "Don't touch anything!" after their kids wash their hands. Thanks for the new neurosis, Ma!
