What’s Yo’ Beef #42

So I like biking, and I understand bikers can be SNOT-TY… I have experienced many snotty bikers before and I don’t condone it. However, my beef today is going to make me sound like a bit of a snotty biker: adults who do not know how to ride a bike. And I don’t mean they get on and just fall off, that’s totally ok. I mean you know how to ride just not properly, like your seat is way too low and you don’t know how to use your gears… You look like a 6 year old with those crazy legs on a low gear and knees almost hitting you in the face. Not to mention you’re creating so much more work for yourself by not fitting your bike to your body. When your foot is on the peddle your knee should be only slightly bent, like maybe 20 degrees? And the higher your gear, the more torque… It takes a bit more energy to get going but once you do, you’ll get there much faster than peddling like a mad man on low gear. Because you look ridiculous.

Okay, so Rachel is basically talking about me, because I really don’t know how to ride a bike at all. Mostly because I’m 5ft tall and it’s really difficult to find a bike that fits me… At least I know I can’t ride a bike? Does that make it better?!

Anyway – here’s my beef guys. It’s Facebook messaging. I just don’t get it! Is it like email, where you just send a long thing and the person responds whenever they want? Is it like MSN, where you expect an instant reply? I don’t get it! I feel like whatever I think it is, it’s actually the opposite, and I’m doing it wrong.

When you get takeout, and take it home and get all excited, and they give you french fries, when you asked for sweet potato fries… Life is so hard.

My beef is personal hygiene. It’s such a bitch, you know what I mean? I’m all for being clean and everything, but the never ending cycle of wax this, pluck that, shave everything, trim your fingernails, get a haircut, brush your teeth… ugh, it just really gets to me sometimes. Life would be easier if I was a robot, that’s for sure.

Sometimes, I wish we could do What’s Yo’ Beef everyday… I am backlogged with beefs right now! My beef this Friday is from last weekend… It all started Friday night when I took my wallet to go to dinner with my husband and friends. Naturally, I left my wallet in husbands truck when we went into the restaurant. HOWEVER, he planned to go fishing 2 hours from home the following morning, I planned to go visit Shannon in Toronto the following day and have a nice afternoon of a killer hip hop dance class and make some money massaging people: BUT I LEFT MY WALLET IN THE TRUCK! Luckily, he was just about to leave on his way back when I called, but I was not able to make it for the hip hop class, which brings me to my beef. Why, with today’s advanced technology, is it such a big deal to drive without that small piece of seemingly insignificant plastic? That’s all it is! Plastic! Why can’t I just tell the officer my name and birth date? They should be able to look it up without the card and know that I am a legitimate driver. COME ON technology… The odds of getting pulled over were low, I have been pulled over twice in my 12 years of driving, but Murphy’s law states “If Rachel drives knowing she doesn’t have her license, she will get pulled over”. Seriously, look it up.

Rachel’s beef is not only seriously legit, but also a good call to scientist’s everywhere, I think. It may possibly even rival my own invention of a hop-flavoured cologne.

My beef is with cardboard boxes today. I don’t know what it is, but lately I’ve been having a really hard time opening them. Did they change how they work? Is this just a crankity thing about getting older that I never knew of? Regardless, now, everytime I open a box of crackers or cereal or something, it looks like this:
