Teen Girl at Work, or TGAW: I don’t like the word transponder. At all.
Ron: Who said transponder?! And why?
TGAW: My mom, on the trip to and from WI, she said it like 1,000 times and it drove me insane. Everything about that word makes me want to die. I don’t even know what that is.
Ron: It’s a device that receives/responds to and retransmits electronic signals.
TGAW: I don’t remember what she was talking about. But she was just like “I need to get one of those transponders” or something like that. And I wanted to scream.
Ron: In that case, it’s E-Z Pass. Instead of having to stop and pay a toll, you drive through a designated toll lane and it automatically charges the toll without you having to stop and find/get change.
TGAW: YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH THATS WHAT IT WAS. Cuz we were going through the Chicago tollway.
Ron: That’s what I figured. Truckers use them a lot to get through weigh stations.
TGAW: Sigh. What a horrible word.
Ron: It’s just a word; the horrible part is apparently your mother.
TGAW: No. Words bother me. Don’t you have a word you completely hate?
Ron: No, just people who I hate that use words.
TGAW: LKJDFLKJD you’re a complicated person.
TGAW: Asking me if I hate a word is like asking me if I hate a screwdriver or a toaster.
That being said, you know what really bugs me? The toaster. I hate the toaster.
You know what else I hate?
I hate being told that I’m required to do overtime so we can hurry up, get all our work done for the rest of the summer, and go over into the print shop next door and do their work for them. So I’m a bit irritated, because when we NEED to be doing overtime in order to keep up with our work, we don’t get it, but when we’re needed to work in another department, doing work we weren’t hired to do at less pay than that department makes, we get unnecessary mandatory overtime.
Author’s Note: I do not, in fact, hate the toaster. The printer, however, can go to Hell.
Author’s Note 2: PC Load Letter? What the fuck does that mean?
Author’s Note 3: Yeah, I’m going to kill the Author’s Note gimmick pretty quickly.
