Do you know what really annoys me? I find really annoying when someone says that they are going to do something and then it is not done. Normally, if I say that I am going to do something, it gets done. Just recently I have had two things promised to me but not done. The first is with this publisher that I keep on going back and forth with in e-mails. I was told to make revisions and resubmit. Well, I did. She told me that she would be in touch but wasn't. I sent a kindly reminder. I was told by another editor that they would look at it and get back to me by the weekend. She didn't and that was two weeks ago. Maybe I was wrong to assume that she meant that weekend. The problem is that I feel if I send another e-mail, it will tick them off and I will be automatically rejected. So I sit and have become very angry at the process.
The second thing was two weeks ago when I tried to renew my husband's truck registration on-line, the system told me that I had an income tax block and could not register. I have been back and forth with the Department of Taxation and finally got someone on the phone. I am being blocked for a mere 13.09! So I promised to send it in the mail and the woman told me that she would remove the block and I could register it in the morning. Guess what? Couldn't do it this morning, I still have the block.
Why don't people just do what they say they are going to to? Otherwise, just don't say that you will do it!
