    Things I Won’t Miss after TSHTF

 

In the process of getting ready for a business meeting, I noticed a bit of a silver lining to this mess we’re in:  There are some absurdities and annoyances that we just won’t have to deal with anymore.  With little effort, the following spring to mind.  Anybody else want to add to this list?

Pantyhose

The sound of the dishwasher running

My family making jokes about my preparatory efforts

Worrying about when the crash is going to occur

Makeup

High heels

Washing the car

The sound of my neighbor’s ATV

Ads for car insurance

Managing my investments

I won’t miss paying social security tax. I guess I won’t miss taxes in general.

I won’t miss balancing personal life with work. I will love being able to spend most of my time with the people that matter. 

Busy work

the constant hum of airconditioners running day and night. I remember the blissful silence- (crickets, even!) for days on end during the great Northeast blackout of 2003.

Seeing sprinklers haphazardly watering concrete/asphalt, so that my sneakers get soaked on a bright sunny day. 

Leaf blowers

riding mowers

blinged out hot rods 

disposable plastic bottled water
