stupidly large beef

Hi, all!

That’s manager Rehanne Skinner at the top today.

Ramble of the Day

A small question: What’s a totally random, completely insignificant thing that you absolutely despise?

It’s an easy answer for me: twist ties. I really only ever interact with twist ties on bags of sliced bread, and waste very little time disposing of them when I want to make toast or a sandwich. I don’t rate twist ties for practical and ideological ones — I don’t think they’re as effective as clips when it comes to closing a bag of food, and I am personally uninterested in figuring out which direction the tie is twisted so I can untwist it.

These are all remarkably small complaints, but that’s why I asked my question. My theory is that I cannot be the only person with a stupidly large beef with something so innocuous, while also acknowledging how ridiculous the severity of the opinion is.

tl;dr: What is something that is very insignificant but makes you angry, anyway? It’s twist ties for me.
