I would like it if my 12 cup coffee maker would actually make 12 cups. Instead the resevoir only holds 10 cups... but the pot says 12. And then it brews about 9.3 cups, causing me to have to add some water at the end so it is not black sludge and making me wonder where the other 0.7 cups of water went to. This is related to the12 hot dogs in a package and only 8 buns in a package... leaving four extra freaking buns to deal with.
I would like it if people didn't have to pay for things to appreciate them. Because when something is free it is taken for granted - and taking it away or asking someone to pay suddenly causes great offense.
I'd like to see Canada come up with a better health care system. (This is not so subtly related to the above point) We can't keep giving it away free.... nor do we want to Americanize it and have people declaring bankruptcy because of medical bills. What is so horribly wrong with letting someone who CAN pay for health care just pay for it?? Does that not open up another spot in line for the ones who can't pay? Don't you think that would ease the burden a bit, maybe even allow some doctors to make more money so they'd stick around for a while? Case in point: My boss has problem 'X' and so does his wife. He is diagnosed and then several months later she gets tested and is also diagnosed. They are both scheduled for surgery. Turns out that hers is worse than his... he asks to switch surgery dates so that his wife can get more timely treatment.
They wouldn't let them switch. Nope, no line jumping for you... please remain in line and only leave if... you know... you die or something. Then hey... there's an open spot for the next person in line!
I would like it if more people could disagree without treating the other person as an enemy. I'm as stubborn and mule-like as the next redhead, but it is tiring to fight battles all day long. If someone is your enemy - squash him like a bug... but if someone is just disagreeing with you, get a life and move on.
