10 things no one likes to do

1) Cleaning up dog poop from your front yard when you don’t own a damn dog.

2) Paying for dental work when you can’t see inside your own mouth and that blurry black and white photo they showed you could have been abstract art.

3) Paying taxes for last year because apparently you are privileged to be middle class, but don’t feel very privileged or middle of anything.

4) Explaining why the tooth fairy forgot this time.

5) Having an hour long political debate because you were stupid enough to make an offhand statement on current events as an icebreaker.

6) Going to eat pho with your non Asian friend and finally explaining after the hundredth question that you actually aren’t Vietnamese and don’t know what all the stuff in the bowl is. It just tastes good.

7) Explaining your job to someone that assumes they already know your job. Yes I was in the Air Force, no I didn’t fly planes. Yes I work in IT, no I can’t fix your motherboard.

8) Going in for an endoscopy and finding out it’s actually a colonoscopy.

9) Doing End of the Year reviews and then having to do first quarter reviews and expectations literally two weeks later.

10) Helping someone troubleshoot their cell phone issues when they start the conversation with “your people didn’t make this one very well.”
