Dislike ~ People who do not return phone calls in a timely manner, especially when they say they are going to call on a certain day (I'm talking to you Mr. City Man and Miss Lender!).
Like ~ My friends who have passed along their children's baby clothing to us--you don't know what lifesavers you are!
Dislike ~ The innocent question of when I am going out on maternity leave. A question I wouldn't mind at all if I wasn't asked the same thing five to ten times a day, often by the same people who asked the day before.
Like ~ My coworkers. I met with an employee one day last week and found the office in a panic when I got out of the meeting. No one could find me and several people were worried I might have gone into labor. They searched all over (even the restroom with the big yellow caution taped X on door). However, they did not check the area where I actually was. Nor did they call my cell phone. Lesson - Announce over the intercom where I am going whenever I leave my desk: "I'm going to the restroom (again)."
Dislike ~ The canceling of a significant doctor's appointment without notifying me or rescheduling it that same week.
Like ~ Friends with relatives in the right places. I now have that doctor's appointment all because I complained to a friend who then called her sister-in-law who, before I knew what was happening, had me scheduled for the appointment. One less thing for me to do. Whew.
Dislike ~ A certain cat and dog who are always stealing my chair.
Like ~ A certain cat and dog who are always stealing my chair--who can get mad at such lovable and sweet animals?
Dislike ~ The frustration and violence some people take out on their homes before they leave.
Like ~Finding a house we really like.
Dislike ~ Discovering that the house we like is part of a special government program for first time buyers--which we aren't.
Dislike ~ Milk that goes sour before it's time.
Like ~ Just opened ice cold milk.
