A Few Things Worthy of Hatred

  1. When people fall asleep against you on the bus.
  2. The shoddiness of umbrellas.
  3. Pseudophedrine being unavailable as an over-the-counter medication in Oregon (thanks for screwing that up for the rest of us, tweakers...)
  4. One's nose and upper lip turning red from all the kleenex.
  5. Inconsiderate neighbors.
  6. Cleaning the bathtub.
  7. Grown men and women who either a. do not cover their mouths when coughing/sneezing or b. don't wash their hands after using the bathroom. Or neither.
  8. The human condition.

There's got to be something similar in Oregon... I got mine in Berlin, but I heard this kind of thing works for a few euros. Maybe it's the same thing K recommends.
