I’ve lived a while now and it pleases me that there are really only two things that bother me:
- Sidewalk gum splotches. Intentional? Accidental? Perhaps the art of gum containment has been lost over the decades. Or maybe new gum technologies make it inevitable that gum leap forth from the maw of the chewer. Maybe we don’t care about such things any more and the end is nigh. Perhaps it’s a conspiracy to keep sidewalk gum removal specialists and chemical manufacturers in business. Perhaps gum tagging a sidewalk is a new rite of passage. Whatever the reason, it bugs me.
- The entirety of humanity.
