There's a reason why the section is called, "Grind My Gearz." For those of you who are either not up-to-date with today's lingo or are not as familiar with Family Guy as you should be, the term "grinds my gears" means "something bothers me."
Now, on to the top three things that currently grind my gears:
1. No Path Across Grass
In between the Sullivan Library and Eiben Hall, behind the Father Chaminade statue, there lies a gorgeous patch of grass. The grass, presumably made for picnic activities and the like, looks like it would be perfect to serve just that purpose.
But why isn't there a path across the grass?!
If I want to get from the area by the athletics office, which includes the shaded eating area with picnic tables, to the library, I would much rather walk across the grass than walk around the rock barrier and down/up the stairs or walk through and around Eiben Hall.
Without a path I can't do it in a guilt-free way. I am forced to think about the nice grass that I am slowly ruining. I also have to worry about the mud that I might step in.
For those of you thinking, "Quit whining and walk through the grass," maybe you should grow a heart and stop ruining our grass. For those of you thinking, "Quit whining and walk around!" maybe you're right. And for those of you thinking, "Reading this is a total waste of time," well so is walking all the way around the pathless grass that caused this whole ordeal.
2. Wheelchair accessible hallway
I do not have a problem with wheelchair accessibility. Doing so would make me a horrible person.
I do question the need for a wheelchair ramp on the second floor of a building that is not wheelchair accessible anywhere else.
Located on the second story of Henry Hall, in front of the Dean's office, is a wheelchair ramp. This ramp is probably very useful to those in need of it, as long as they make it up the two flights of stairs that precede the ramp (three if they're coming from the Courtyard.)
I understand that there are regulations for all new buildings to have some sort of wheelchair accessibility, but this ramp, in its location, is absolutely useless.
3. People complaining
To someone, somewhere, this grind just might be shared, causing him or her to think, "Yeah! That grinds my gears too!"
Most of you, though, are probably thinking, "Actually, reading Matt Sanders' stupid complaints grinds my gears."
More people need to complain- the right way. There is an email address located in every section, email@example.com, where you can tell us what you think.
Hate me? Tell me. Love me? I'll give you my cell number. Either way, if you want to complain, don't just rant to random people, rant to the world! If you tell us, we will post it.
So quit being satisfied. Nothing is perfect. If your gears are grinding, say something!
