Lets start with Residual annoyed.
When I go out on a scout with the big muckey-mucks (Director, producer, D.P., etc.) I have to schedule lunch so nobody gets all crabby. I pay for it out of petty cash, but I still treat it as if it's my money. So, what's with the waitress who serves us really slowly in spite of the call the night before letting the restaurant know that A.) we'll be a group of 8 arriving at 1:00pm, B.) we'll call in our order by Noon, C.), please don't try to serve everything at once, just bring out each bit as it's ready, and D.) our object in life is to get everyone fed as quickly as possible and to get back to work. So, it isn't unusual to get the bill for a group of 8 and see that the restaurant has automatically added a 20% gratuity. I can live with this as long as it's clearly marked. (Note to restaurants: Sometimes I'd tip even better if the service was great, but if you automatically add it on, the server isn't going to see a dime more than what's on the bill...just sayin'.) Anyway, so I get the bill which has a gratuity of $36.87 added on, bringing the bill to $233 and change. I hand over $240.00. Why the fuck do I have to ask for the change. $37.00 isn't enough of a tip?
This morning annoyed:
Two of the streets on my commute that have construction going on were completely closed when I tried to drive to work this morning. I had to go blocks past where I wanted to and then backtrack around the construction. It added minutes to my commute. This annoyed me.
One of my scouts showed up this morning with pictures of a location that were so shitty I had to tell him to re-shoot it, since I had no idea what I was looking at from the photos. Annoyed!
He also has a busted computer in the shop so, instead of adding photo files to my website himself, that I can just look at there, he brings me the photo files on his i-Pod, which I then have to dump to my computer and then upload to the website myself. Uber-Annoyed.
I just went downstairs to have a smoke and I sat down on my customary convenient bit of horizontal building peice. It was wet from last night's rain. Soooo fucking annoyed.
This is all pretty small potatoes. Still...I'm annoyed. Crabby. Unhappy. Pissed off, even.
Somebody please slap the shit out of me and tell me to get over it.
