It’s that time again, time for another rousing edition of Things I Want To Complain About!
Here’s what’s been bugging me lately:
1. People who massage each other in church.
On multiple occasions now I have sat behind couples who actively give each other shoulder and neck massages while in church.
What’s up with that?
I’m glad they feel comfortable learning and listening about the Lord, but they make me uncomfortable with their full-on massaging of a loved one’s neck.
2. The month of March
Of all 12 months, March is my least favorite. It’s dismal in Michigan. There are no leaves and the grass is still brown. Add snow and I’m left wondering how I ever got from sunny Southern California to Michigan’s barren endless winter.
Plus, there are other pesky things about the month of March that I don’t like, such as Daylight Savings and March is Reading Month.
March. Just blah.
3. The Salvation Army rejected me
We recently bought a new couch to replace our old one, which was 9 years old. There wasn’t anything wrong with it, we just wanted something bigger that reclined.
Imagine my surprise when the Salvation Army came to pick up the old couch and rejected it. I guess there’s a hard and fast rule that if there are ANY rips, it’s a no go. Turns out the fabric under the seat cushions that covered the springs was ripped. I don’t know, maybe because we had children who jumped on the couch a few times?
It’s not like I had it outside in the woods where teenagers held keggers on it and raccoons burrowed in it. No, I had just been sitting on that couch in my living room for the last 9 years.
Anyhoo, I am now a Salvation Army reject. Tell your friends.
That’s it for this installment of my scintillating series, “Things I Want To Complain About”. Missed the first three installments? Never fear, you can check out the original plus Part II and Part III.
Yours in whining,
P.S. I’m always happy to hear what other people are complaining about. Do share!
