Day 173--- Get Out of My Way...


So, in interest of catching up with some of the days that I missed throughout the contest weeks, and getting used to my new sleep schedule I am going to do a few shorter posts on some of the most random people that I can think of... The winner for today's post is those people that fill up their entire water bottles in the water fountain...

If you have ever worked in an office, been to the gym, or attended school you have no doubt run into one of these inconsiderate pricks. My luck has usually stuck me behind this person at the gym, when I am the most thirsty that I could possibly be. I just so happen to run up behind the person who feels that the fountain is for their use only... You know what I mean, those people who have those huge 64oz. bottles that they feel they need to fill right then and there. This would not be so bad if it were not for the poor stream of water that struggles to pour out of the tap... It would also not be so bad if they were considerate enough to let me grab my sip of water before the decided to fill the rest of there workout canteen, but in reality most of them are not. They may turn around occasionally giving this pathetic look like they can not help but filling the who thing up right then...

This is when I will sit there tapping my foot, and making all sorts of noises just to keep reminding them that I am there. Oh, I know they know that I am there, but I really try and make these situations as awkward as I can so that maybe they will get the picture for the future... I really cant think of anything else comparable that is this blatantly rude and wasteful of other peoples time... There is no real way around this unless you are willing to try the ol'goose trick, really one thumb up the butt and these people are sure to get out of your way... Honestly it may not even take a thumb, a finger or two may do the trick... Really though, that may be more socially frowned upon but I personally do not find it to be any more rude than monopolizing the water fountain for minutes at a time... The rules for fountains should be pretty universally straight forward just like the rules of a joint... puff puff pass... sip sip leave OK people...

I work with one of these people.. but then she has MS and struggles with a cane to walk, so if she wants to fill up her water bottle to take back to her desk then I'm okay with that.

But as for people who do it just because they feel like an athlete drinking from a water bottle than from a cup like a sane person, those people I have a problem with.
