Things That Annoyed Me Lately

1) A fast food place in Crystal City has a sign in the window reading "se necessita senorita." Aside from posting a "help wanted" sign only in Spanish, gender is not exactly a legitimate requirement to make sandwiches.

2) I tried to help a couple of German tourists on the metro yesterday. They were trying to go to Chinatown and I showed them the Gallery Place - Chinatown station on the metro map. And I explained that they were on the wrong train and needed to get off at either Pentagon City or Pentagon and get on the Yellow Line because the Blue Line doesn't stop there and it would be much longer if they stayed on it. When the train got to the Pentagon Station, I again told them they should get off and change trains. It wouldn't bother me so much that they ignored my advice, but afterwards the man saw it was much further and complained about how difficult the Washington metro is to use.

3) Trader Joe's no longer has their East Meets West coffee blend, the only reasonably cheap coffee I consider drinkable.

4) There are about 6 things I want to do this spring. And every single one of them has been scheduled for exactly the same weekend. I realize that May is difficult with Memorial Day and Mother's Day, but this is a bit much.
