Today I heard a story about our need to classify our behavior, it as described as "syndrome syndrom" it was part of a serious topic but an example given was about a an aid to a governor (I think us Polly of some sort) who didn't file taxes, when he got caught he claimed yo have "non filer syndrom" it got me thinking, what would you like to blame on a "syndrom"
I think my coffee and chocolate habit would gain a whole lot more sympathy if it was a "double caffeine dependacy syndrom"

As for myself, I am currently suffering from "Overly Excessive Berry Eating Syndrome" and the commensurate colon-related complications. It's just that strawberry season rolls over into raspberry/cherry season which rolls over into blueberry season and finishes off with blackberry season and it's just a 4 month glutton of berry goodness that I fail to avoid every year.

I have "can't bring myself to go to bed at a decent hour" syndrome. It's a bad one! As a result, I also have "i regularly try to put my milk in the pantry instead of the fridge" syndrome!

I have the "No More Teen Nick" syndrome! If I have to watch one more Drake & Josh rerun, rerun, rerun I'm going to start losing actual brain matter, not just the cells!

Omg. I just had a run in with a special snow flake too....I was at Coles shopping about to go through the checkout when this woman started yelling that she"wasn't ignorant" as i was not taking much notice she made it clear she was taking to me, it took me a moment to workout why, she said, "I'm not ignorant, I just can't evaporate into thin air and get out of your way" my daughter had just ran into a mans Trolly (right next to this lady) and I said to her (my daughter) "quick move Ingrid" so this special snow flake had stormed around the supermarket for half an hour than told me off because she was mistaken, then whe. I told her my daughter is Ingrid she glared at me lime I had purposely made a fool of her and just pushed past me .... I then politely told her she wad a stuck up cow. And not to worry about apologizingto me it was ok we all make ignorant mistakes ..... Yes special snow flake

Johnny, I loved that story. As I get older I find angry drivers more and more laughable. Then I get angry and someone is probably laughing at me as well. How sweet though, it's her road... lol.

My kids have done drivers ed, and I tell them to remember everyone is on the road because they have somewhere to go, so be courteous.

Now I have to think of another syndrome.

I'm effing sick of never having money syndrome. --- so there.

Ah, Karla, a late-stage case nearly killed me yesterday on the road. She yelled at me out her car window, "I DON'T MERGE. THIS IS MY ROAD!!" It was on a 4 lane highway in a construction site. I couldn't even get mad it was so funny. The flag person nearly fell over laughing. My 3 year old knows better than that.

Have you seen this one from the Urban Dictionary?

Special Snowflake Syndrome
A malady affecting a significant portion of the world's population wherein the afflicted will demand special treatment, conduct themselves with a ludicrous, unfounded sense of entitlement, and generally make the lives of everyone around them that much more miserable.

The danger of this disease is that the sufferers rarely, if ever, know that they have contracted it, and continue about their merry way under the assumption that EVERYONE ELSE is the problem.

This condition, if left untreated, can radically alter the carrier's demeanor, to include any of the following: a complete devolution to child-like behavior, temper tantrums, and/or fits of narcissistic rage.

When confronted with an individual suspected of harboring Special Snowflake Syndrome, one's best course of action is to run away. Further attempts at educating the carrier on the reality of their condition (e.g., quoting Tyler Durden: "You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.") will likely prove futile, and potentially hazardous to the informer.

-Can you believe that lady who was just in? Where the hell am I supposed to find the earrings that match this necklace that the manufacturer stopped making ten years ago?

-Hell if I know, but she definitely had Special Snowflake Syndrome.

Rachael I think something in diet soda is actually addictive. Any one I know who drinks it seems dependent on it.
