10 Things I Hate

People who listen to their voicemail on speakerphone;

Men who have shoes that make more noise than mine when they walk;

That I can never seem to really clean my coffeemaker;

That the perfect pair of shoes on sale for next to nothing is always a full size too small;

People who can not figure out how to use their SmartCard properly;

Anyone who says "knock, knock" outside my office instead of actually just knocking;

Girls who think it's cute to wear dresses that barely covers their asses, get sloppy drunk, and dance around slamming into people, saying crude things and touching other people's boyfriends (yes, table full of drunk girls at Blue Gin last weekend, I mean you);

That the shadows in the NARS duos are not available individually;

People who ask and answer their own questions as a form of conversation;

That the storm of the century totally derailed my plans to spend a leisurely afternoon in the Barney's beauty department this weekend.

As for the coffee maker situation:

Put a teaspoon of that into a filter and run as normal. Then, just run water. You can also use a bit on a paper towel to get those hard-to-reach areas of brown crud that accumulate.

I knew that year of working at a coffee shop in college would pay off...

Hawaiiswagqueen beat me to it; it really does work. Vinegar as well. Now if only I could wean myself off the embarrassingly girly flavored creamers I use.

The only thing worse than that is when they decide to have a homosexual moment and touch YOU while you're WITH your boyfriend. I had to go home and take an extremely hot shower after that...ugh.

LOL - I just heard a man with clicky heels yesterday - and had the same thought.

And I second elle with the vinegar - works on tea kettles, too.

I'm going to think of this post everytime I say 'knock knock' before entering someone's office - I'm so guilty of that!

How about people who slurp their coffee so loud that even with your office door closed, you can hear them? Drives me crazy!!!!

I hate the speakerphone! It's bad enough when I can hear one side of the conversation.
