I’m tired of worrying about whether I’m ending a sentence with a preposition (which is apparently okay now, so never mind).

I’m tired of people (my boss) who don’t know how to use a semicolon.

I’m tired of the way he randomly capitalizes Words for no apparent Reason.

I’m tired of my boss, period, who has progressed from telling everyone that he’s spending two weeks in Italy, to telling everyone that he’s spending two weeks in the UK, Switzerland, AND Italy.

I’M TIRED OF EMAILS THAT ARE ALL CAPS. IF YOU’RE TOO LAZY TO TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK, YOU’RE TOO LAZY TO BE ALIVE.

I’m tired of living in a nursing home with my mom and it’s only been five days.

I haven’t slept in three weeks. I just thought I’d throw that out there.

I’m tired of seeing/hearing even the smallest iota of anything involving Donald Trump.

I’m tired of football playing on every fucking channel, NOT EVERYBODY WANTS TO WATCH FOOTBALL, THIS IS STILL A FREE COUNTRY.

I’m tired of brushing my teeth.

I’m tired of deciding what to eat.

I’m tired of shopping for something online and then that thing showing up on every web page I visit for the next three days. It’s creepy.

I’m tired of reading about AI.

I’m tired of political ads, which only used to show up every few years and now play incessantly every year, all year long.

I’m tired of waking up at 6:30 am because my body still thinks it’s 7:30 am.

I’m tired of Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, Substack, and every other platform I can think of.
