Things that are annoying me this week...
1. Television doctors. Not only are most of them way too attractive to be real people, have you noticed how much they cry? I'm sure that if doctors cried so much in real life as they did on TV, they would drown in their own tears. Possibly literally.
Seriously? You're crying because you lost a patient? Yeah, okay, but do you realise that if this affects you like this EVERY SINGLE TIME, then you might need to go into another field of work. Because you know what? You're a doctor. This is what you are paid to do.
But you know what I hate the most? Now I realise that on most shows the TV doctors are the main characters, so we're supposed to see how they're emotionally affected, but I hate -- HATE -- when TV doctors cry when they're delivering bad news to a waiting family, and then THE WAITING FAMILY COMFORTS THE DOCTOR.
No, just no. Their son/daughter/mother/father/whatever is dying, and you're having a rough day at work. I know where my sympathy lies. Suck it up and do your damn job.
2. My radio alarm clock can only pick up one radio station. It's country music. This morning I woke up to this:
But at least I now get out of bed in a real hurry.
(Sidenote: in looking for this song, I realised that the Australian version is the original. I think it's more of a tongue twister as well. )
3. Twilight fans and their reaction to the break-up of the century. Not all Twilight fans, probably, but ones like these:
WHY, KRISTEN, WHY?
Take a step back, take a breath, and please try and get some damn perspective. Last time I checked, this was not a sign of the apocalypse.
And yes, I do appreciate the irony of telling someone else to get perspective when I've just written this post. Life's funny like that, hey?
What's annoying you this week?
