I realized today that I have a few very random personality quirks. Though they are of little importance I have decided to write about three of my very minor neurotic tendencies.
1: Revolving doors. I can’t stand these things some are motorized an others are not and those that are scare me completely. I always worry if there is some ‘door etiquette’ I am missing when using one. Also I dislike being separated from my party while entering a building. I also worry when others approach the door at the same time as me, who gets the right of way? And when I falter due to panic are they going to be angry with me?
2: Pre-order prompts at the drive thru. I understand the need for advertisement, and my sources confirm that thye do increase sales but they annoy me. I realize they are prerecorded but my need to be polite means I must first say “no thank you” before I can order, and then there is a vague hint of guilt and that doesn’t help with the fact that I’m ordering what is probably a days worth of food while failing to even get out of my car. Also on the prerecorded angle is the fact that sometimes it’s a sweet and innocent womanly voice asking if I’d like the super deluxe mushroom burger, but then after I order I am greeted by some Vin Diesel sounding man. It’s disconcerting.
Today I ate at Long John Silver’s and the prompt asked me “Have you tried a frozen lemonade?” I was unsure how to respond to that, it wasn’t asking if I wanted one, just if I had tried one. Only seconds before a woman sitting near the drive through had given me a free sample of one, so I answered “Sort of,” And then continued with my order.
3: Pigeons; they just freak me out.
Tomorrow I will be uploading an essay that some might find very interesting.
