Stuff I don't really expect people to understand

I consider it one of my personal missions to stand up to people who pull inconsiderate shit like going through the express lane with obviously more than the alloted items, talking on a cell phone in theaters, etc. Or barring that, at least point out that they're assholes. My mom thinks I'm getting bitchy. metaphorge thinks I'm taking things too personally. Lots of people apparently think I'm the queen of whining. And to some degree, I guess they're all probably right. But I just think I'm doing my duty.

"It's the principle!"

One of my more annoying flaws is that I tend to get all bent out of shape over stuff that doesn't really matter because I'm hung up on the principle. I don't know when to pick my battles.

There's such a thing as being too idealistic, I guess. Sets you up to become a cynic.
