I’m working on this really sweet “what I’m thankful for” post for tomorrow. In the meantime … let’s start this off on the right foot.

Here are the things I’m not thankful for (this is also very much a First World Problems list).

Crappy smartphones. Why is nothing built to last anymore? I bought my phone in February, and it started going all diva after only a few months. I’m on a family plan and can’t even steal anyone else’s upgrade until next spring.

Not having an iPad. Seriously, I feel like everyone else has one. I certainly don’t need one, but I feel left out. Wah wah wah …

The modern toddler iPad experience

Heartburn and indigestion. Growing older is fun. Apparently when you turn 30, you need to start carrying antacids with you at all time. Swell.

The American Music Awards. I don’t even watch this show because I can’t take it. Seriously … that is “the best” music being made in our country today? I’m not going to argue that it is certainly the best selling music. And it’s catchy, yes. But where is the musical talent? When did we stop learning how to play instruments? Or sing without autotune?

Oh man, I sound old. These kids today and their loud rock and/or roll music … 

Hostess snack cakes. Seriously, why did everyone freak out? I actually ate a Ho Ho yesterday for the first time in years, and guess what guys, cheap snack cakes aren’t that great. Maybe Hostess was doing us a favor. Or maybe the palate of a 10-year-old is less discerning.

Changing passwords. I have to change my work voicemail password like once a month, which is how often I get voicemails. Most people just email me, or I answer the phone. Or it’s a cold call and they don’t leave a voicemail. Or I’m working from home and my calls are forwarded to my smartphone. Point being, when you have to change your PW so often on something you rarely use, and can’t recycle old passwords, you end up getting locked out after so many wrong PW attempts. Annoying. Just email me. I miss my old work phone system that would send my voicemails to me via email as an audio file attachment. Again … wah wah wah …
