I saw another teenager today wearing ballet flats and no socks. On the street. In February. In Montreal. It seems to be some sort of a trend, I've been seeing this regularly. It's 10 freaking degrees below zero! Idjit girls. To think I was once a teenage girl. The mind boggles.
As much as cell phone people annoy me, I think the iPod people are worse. With their headphones on. Singing at the top of their lungs. For some reason it seems like the only ones singing out loud are the ones who really really shoudn't. The once who have no voice, never had had any voice and are just a blight on the urban soundscape. Sometimes I just feel like slapping them.
There's a whole sneeze into your sleeve movement going on right now. Did I ever mention that? Might be. Anyway, so the point is, when in public you should sneeze into your sleeve because that way you don't contaminate your hand with germs and slather them all over subway and bus poles or door handles etc. Sorry, but the whole idea is a bit nasty to me. What if it's one of those sneezes that disloges copious amounts of mucus? On your sleeve. For the world to see. At least you can wipe your hand with a kleenex. Or hey, why not sneeze directly into the kleenex. There's a thought. Why has nobody thought of that particular brilliant idea?
And speaking of Kleenex. I saw an ad recently for - get this - antiviral kleenex. After years of useless antibacterial everything from soap to Febreeze, now you have kleenex that will kill your germs. How stupid is that?
First you had hankies, then kleenex, then 3-ply man kleenex, then kleenex with lotion (by the way, never clean your glasses with those - makes a nasty mess), and now bug killing kleenex. Can't help but wonder what the next generation of snot picker upper will offer.
