BMT #2

It's time for another installation of what I will now refer to as "You know what really burns my toast?" (If you don't know what I'm talking about, look back a couple posts.)

I was making rice last night... Minute Rice, to be exact... when I noticed a blatant disregard for human intelligence. Now I don't know about you, but when I think minute rice, I think that my rice will be done in a minute, hence the name "Minute Rice". Of course I understand that this is virtually impossible, but if advertising says it's true, than it must be, right? Corporate America wouldn't lie to us, would they?

They would, and they did.

Not only did it take about 7 or 8 minutes to boil the water, the instructions told me I had to let the rice sit for 5 minutes! 5 minutes!! It even says so on the box! Minute Rice?!! MINUTE RICE??!! More like 12 or 13 minute rice! Man that really burns my toast!!!

Stay tuned for more anger management... as life throws me petty frustration, I'll be sure to overreact!

Godspeed!
