Now that some things have returned to normal . . . or at least a NEW normal . . . we can go back to complaining about the stuff we used to complain about before we complained about the pandemic. A new survey asked people what everyday irritations they are NOT happy to have come back . . . and the most popular response was “sitting in traffic.” Now that we are all back on the roads, traffic is a thing again.
Not everything on the list is an OLD annoyance. For example, the second-most popular answer is “taking COVID-19 tests.”
Other popular responses include: Filling up the car with gas more often . . . commuting . . . having LESS spare time to do household chores . . . finding a parking space . . . having to clean the house for visitors . . .
Having to attend social events . . . going to meetings in person . . . and having to visit extended family members like the in-laws.
