It's Monday and we're back in the office. Oh, joy.
Since the dawn of time, working stiffs have been annoyed by the same basic things day-in and day-out: the awkward and annoying conversations, the technology that never quite works, hearing everyone weigh in on every single item in the news. Of course, it's better to have a job than not, but it doesn't make these daily annoyances any less grating.
So here's a quick salute to those topics of conversation and events which almost everyone would prefer to avoid this week. What are you not looking forward to this week?
Avoiding 'Breaking Bad' Spoilers
If you haven't caught up yet, the water cooler (not to mention most of the Internet) is pretty much off limits.

The Election Devolving Into 'American Idol'
There are over 100 days until November 4, but with both candidates using <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/31/mitt-romney-america-the-beautiful-_n_1243908.html" target="_hplink">each others' singing voices as ammunition</a>, can't we just text in our votes and call it a a day?
Another Brilliant Idea From The Westboro Baptist Church
It seems like no matter who passes away, no matter how tragic the death, these guys will <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/16/sage-stallone-death-westboro-church-picket-_n_1676362.html" target="_hplink">find a reason to picket it</a>.
The Long Week Before We Can See 'Dark Knight Rises'
You can only read so many articles about how transcendent Christopher Nolan is.
Running Out Of Summer Clothes
Our disinterest in doing laundry is working hard against the number of 90+ degree days we've been having. Hang in there, shorts.
Hearing How Green Day's Never Been The Same Since 'Dookie.' Again.
With <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/16/green-day-oh-love-single-uno-dos-tre_n_1676224.html" target="_hplink">every new album</a> comes the same old comments from the peanut gallery.
Not Another Superhero Movie
No, we're not talking about the next "Not Another" parody (Thank God). Hot on the heels of the Spider-man reboot comes <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/16/man-of-steel-poster-henry-cavill-_n_1675913.html" target="_hplink">a new Super Man movie</a>. Does Hollywood have any original ideas anymore?
