hall monitors.

There is nothing more annoying to me than self-proclaimed police officers. I’m not talking about REAL police officers, I’m talking about the people who take it upon themselves to police the rest of the world. Let’s call them “hall monitors”. You know what I’m talking about! People who have no authority to be bossing others around, except their own conviction. That’s not a parking spot. You were driving too fast. That’s against the rules. Bla bla bla. Hall monitors have nothing better to do than boss the rest of us around – MEGA rule followers and generally tattle-tales.

In my experience, hall monitors tend to migrate to specific jobs. They quickly become frustrated that they don’t have the “official authority” to boss people around, so they seek jobs that give them the authority. For example, meter maids, judges, ferry workers, border patrol, and yes, police officers. I’m not saying that ALL people in these occupations fit into this category, but these jobs give the hall monitors “official authority” to do what they love. Why don’t they just mind their own business?!?! We aren’t hurting you hall monitor – back off!

    Not too long ago, I found a handwritten note on my car that said, “THIS IS NOT A PARKING SPOT!” I just started laughing and now park there as much as possible.

    Well put ‘dra! Can I add a few? Okay, I will… Some airline stewardesses (specifically from American and Northwest, but never Horizon, Alaska, Virgin or southwest.) Some TSA bag screeners. But most of all the skinny elderly highway patrol that works the Colfax area in the unmarked Dodge Charger. He wears black driving gloves and has a happy gleam in his eye as writes his tickets. He’s a little too much into his job… Thanks for giving me the opportunity to vent.
