More Than 3 Things I Hate

  • Someone in tonight's Strategic Management class was wearing way too much perfume. I don't think it was a guy, since most of them smell of curry, but I'm not ruling it out.
  • A woman in the same class was wearing a charm bracelet that jangled way too much.
  • I ordered 3 textbooks online and they're all being shipped separately. I need them now.
  • The first one arrived today marked "signature required." I was in the shower, so the driver took off.
  • It's the wrong edition and I just know it's going to be a MAJOR hassle to get the right one before Arbor Day.
  • I just picked up Michael BublĂ©'s 1st album of standards. I can't express how much it sucks having music and not having someone with whom to dance.
  • Someone I know was ranting on traffic today, so what happens? I get stuck in it too.
  • This was originally entitled 3 Things I Hate.

*jangle, jangle, jangle* Yeah, that perfume crap bugs me, too. Why, oh, why did strong perfumes have to be invented? Don't they know people have NOSES?

When I worked in town I used to try desperately to have late lunches, to avoid the lift rush. Everyone would squirt their horrifically expensive (and yet still incredibly tacky) perfume and then crush into a small lift, leaving those of us sensitive to their heady perfume to ride the 18 flights feeling nauseous and light headed. Great way to put you off your food before you've even had a chance to decide what you wanted in the first place.

Hope you get the books sorted. And boy, how quiet is that class if you can hear her bracelet!!

Any amount of perfume is too much, as far as I'm concerned. You know how some people are super-tasters? Well, The Man is a super-smeller. If I go to dinner with a friend who is wearing perfume, The Man notices it in my hair and clothes when I come home, and refuses to cuddle me. It makes him gag.

When a man cuddles you and then gags, it does horrible things to your ego.

Jeanette- I'm not overly sensitive to smells, but this was particularly noxious and obviously designed to cover something up, as opposed to attracting.

Hooch- If that happened to me more than once I'd hit the button for the next floor and bail out. And it's not so much the room being quiet as the jangling at just the right frequency.

Allie- I'm trying to get there, but I'm stuck in traffic.

Theic- The Man doesn't happen to work in customs at the airport, does he?

I'm not allowed to wear any fragrances anymore. You never know when a patient might be allergic to it. However, I love the way Zelda gets when I'm wearing Drakkar so I'll have to put it on when I get home.

If ANYONE starts making fun of my cheesy Drakkar obsession, I will hunt them down and stab them in the neck.

Jeth- Oh man, I can't wait to make fun of her for that.

Z- Sounds perfectly normal to me *snicker*

#3tx- Ohmydamn- 3 classes, 3 textbooks, 3 nipples...it's EVERYWHERE! RUNAWAY!

I don't understand the 3 theme. Blame it on the naivety of youth.

However, I will dance with you. I love Michael Buble. I'll even come to Texas, but only because I'm tired of being here.

You're askin' for it buddy. You know we're going to meet someday.

Al- What can I say, the paperwork was processed faster than anticipated.

Bonnie Heather- The 3's is a cult of man-devouring she-devils. You're safe, but some of us have to watch our backs.

Z- You're right. In a city of 4.something million, it's just a matter of time.

Um ok. Is it just me or is the person wearing the overpowering perfume always, ALWAYS wearing grandma perfume...??

Don't kid yourself my friend. Houston is the largest small town on the planet.

How I wish either one or both of you were wrong. Alas, our hero weeps.
