stuff that sucks

It sucks to discover, belatedly, that you've had a booger hanging out of your left nostril for who-knows-how-long, and that the knot of your tie has slipped way over to one side for no good reason. Students are often afraid to tell the teacher that he's not looking his best.

Must have been one of those dangling modifiers you wrote about . . .

Thank goodness it was that dangling modifier and not one located farther south.

No. Sadly, what's worse than that:

1. Sneezing and knowing you launched a loogie, but searching high and low you cannot find it; and only later, upon visiting the workplace shitter and looking at yourself as you lave los manos, do you view your visage in the mirror, and realize your previously launched loogie/booger has been perched, center of your chest all day long, is now dessicated to within a micron of its existence, and not one motherfucker you work with has said, "I think you have something on your shirt."

also worth noting:

2. Realizing by 12 noon that you've come to work with your shirt VISIBLY on INSIDE OUT, SEAMS OUT, ALL FUCKING DAY and not one person either noticed or gave a shit enough to say, "Um... is it national inside out day... again?" WTF!!!
