Dealing With Life’s Little Annoyances

WASHINGTON D.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Life is full of little annoyances, but how you cope with the bothersome blunders is half the battle.

That’s according to a new book by Ian Urbina titled Life’s Little Annoyances: True Tales Of People Who Just Can’t Take It Anymore (Times Books), which explores the little things that make people tick.

For example, inconsiderate dog owners who let their pooches poop in public places and then fail to pick up after their furry friends are a common pet peeve of folks who just want to go for a nice, clean walk.

Other irritable irks in the book include...

  • Pushy, pestering sales clerks who follow you and stalk your every move in the store without understanding that you really are “just browsing.”

  • Being stuck on a flight next to a rude passenger who insists on invading your tiny personal space on the airplane.

  • Listening to your co-worker’s annoying, cutesy cell phone ring tone all day long at the office.

  • Being a college student and having to wake up at 7:00 a.m. on Saturdays because your airhead roommate forgets to turn off their alarm clock.

    Finally, the “Granddaddy Of All Annoyances” is when a telemarketer calls you right before dinner to sell you something completely useless.
