Hommage to Sei Shonagon, or Hindus wear Bhindis and Hindi is a language
People who always says hello and start to run. I say hello back & go my way. If I turn back again, I see they are no longer in a rush to get somewhere. Very annoying! Like when you meet someone accidently on your way to somewhere else, they make a point of saying loudly, “I can’t stop to talk right now.” Did I indicate by my hello I wanted to talk? How annoying! I get a phone call, only to be told that the speaker only has a minute to say hello before going elsewhere. Annoying! I go to the Genius Counter at Apple and am told that I only get 15 minutes, five of which are taken up by the genius telling me why it would be better if I called the on-line help next time. Truly annoying! I read an article about visiting India, and once again, I am not amused. Annoying! I’m told brightly I have no accent. No comment. People who turn to check the veracity of people who pretend to be rushing while saying hello. Annoying!
