    Things that irk me? I took my wife to chemo again yesterday, about the 40th time this year. There were 2 pregnant women getting treated at the same time. This is proof that a sentient or benevolent god does not exist.

    And to know that everyone receiving treatment will have a good chunk of their life savings drained to pay for overly expensive care.

    The "does anyone have a recommendation for the best (insert inane thing here)" post on Facebook. Good God people unless it's just really obscure you don't need to post it on Facebook. A rather persistent oversharer just asked where she can get matching pjs for her two children. Jesus, did you try Walmart or Target? Did you actually look? Her kids are going to be those shits in my class who can't bother reading directions before asking for help.

    It's not that they can't find their own recommendation -- Google exists -- it's because they want the attention.

    Actors and actresses who seem to take pride in not having seen the movies they're in. The latest, Constance Wu

    Constance Wu Made $600 While 'Undercover' as a Stripper Before Filming Hustlers

    The actress also revealed during an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan that she hasn’t yet seen the movie.

    "I still haven’t seen it. The last movie I saw of mine was Crazy Rich Asians,” Wu said.

    Wu explained it was difficult to see herself onscreen, saying, “It was watching that movie, after that experience, that I stopped watching anything.”​

    Oh, so you have no interest in seeing how you come off as a stripper? Either you're an idiot or you're lying. Either way, not a good look.

    It is incredibly difficult to watch yourself onscreen and you run the danger of becoming self conscious which is death for an actor,

    So the only feedback they get is from the reaction of other actors? Don’t they spend hours in front of a mirror seeing how what they think they are projecting is actually coming off?

    Nope ... that's what acting teachers and directors are for. It needs to be internally realized.
