What’s Yo Beef #41

So last Sunday I went to the Jays game to get a bobblehead for Rachel. There was a decent line, and I was in it for about 40 minutes. I could deal with that; I knew it wasn’t going to be a picnic going in. (Though in hindsight, I should have brought snacks, and definitely made it a picnic.)

Here’s where my beef comes in. Once we started moving, all these people just melded to the line and started cutting in all over the place! What the dude?! There was a line for a reason, buttmunchers. People who can’t obey society’s innate laws and have no social conscience in respect to lines. COME ON!

That is frustrating Shannon… If you can’t do a simple societal task as properly join a line, just stay home. But the question burning in all of our minds I’m sure, did you get the bobblehead?!?!?

My beef today, specifically, is that I finally mustered up the ambition to hem some skirts and dresses, but damned if I can find my straight pins! Generally, I am constantly moving shit around and ALWAYS forgetting where I put it. Its really, really, really… really annoying. COME ON!

Guys, first off, let me just say how much I’m really enjoying getting all these beefs off my back. I feel like I’m living pretty close to the edge of full-blown freak outs, like, all the time, so I really think this has been an effective coping mechanism for my life.

Back to my beef. This week’s beef is dedicated to physical activity. I joined a (flag) football league with my work, and man, I’m just dying. I can’t lift my legs, I feel like 400 pounds, and my entire body aches. Come on, Body, I’m trying to do something awesome for you! The least you could do is not respond like I’m punishing you. Can’t we help each other out here? The second-day-after body aches after working out, I say to you: suck it.

I have a bit of an observational beef today. Its nothing that outwardly bothers me, or frustrates me, or affects me physically, just something I see that gives me a weird feeling. I don’t mean to offend anyone, but what’s the deal with men driving minivans? I see it, and it just looks so unnatural to me and slightly emasculating. It might be because I don’t like minivans to begin with, or that I hang out with a lot of manly men who own large trucks… Probably both. But man, convenience aside, it just weirds me out.

Well friends, winter seems to be upon us. You might be thinking my beef on this snowy Friday is about the weather, but it’s just a weather related beef about me. I  am a late person… Actually no, not a late person but an exactly on time person, which doesn’t leave a lot of leeway for unexpected holdups on the way to work. Because of this, my beef for today is that first snow fall where you totally forget to take into account the time it takes to brush the snow off your car and then you walk into work late. Damn.

With Halloween being so recently behind us, and my costume so totally kick-ass (I went as a sea lion, complete with a gemstone bikini top and a fur diaper, because of course), my beef today is about wigs. No, not not wearing them, of course (idiot), but how I can’t wear them more often. I love wigs! Why can’t I wear my blue shiny one to work? Sure, not when partners are around, but maybe just on Friday’s? Because you know what, they make me feel super good.

Well, it’s an old age beef this week folks. You put your laundry out to dry, you feel really good about it because you’re saving energy and being green. Then it rains. And the weather app on your phone sucks so you didn’t know that. Now, all your clothes are damp on the line and after all that effort of putting it up, you throw it in the dryer anyways. Some of the things you hang dry in the basement, and when you put it on the next day, it stinks, and you have to wash it all over again. COME ON!

Shannon

My beef is when you’re sitting in traffic, waiting to get home at 7:16 on a Friday night, and a big ass stupid transport truck is trying to back into a tiny space on a main road and is taking up everywhere. COME ON!!

Share your beef with us, but only if it’s medium rare.

What’s Yo’ Beef Friday: #4

by Rachel

Wow, week 4 already of what’s yo’ beef. What’s yo’ beef today?

My beef is super tiny straws. I don’t mean short straws, I mean straws with a small diameter. It ruins the straw drinking experience. COME ON! Give me a super size McDonald’s size straw and I’m happy as a clam.

My beef? I’ll tell ya my beef. You finally cave and get a Kobo and read on the streetcar, and really, you’re all like, Why did I wait so long to do this, this is awesome. Only to look up and realize that you’ve missed your stop, because you were waiting to get off at Ossington, but you forgot that in Toronto along the St. Clair streetcar line, the stop is called Oakwood. Why would they do that? Just keep the street names organized. Seriously.

Got a beef? Go on, leave us a comment. Get it off your chest, and into the interweb.
