This handy notepad hardly deserves to be classified solely as a “back-to-school” item, what with its year-round versatility and usefulness for your entire social circle, but back-to-school time does herald the sometimes turbulent adoption of a new routine. Use the Things You Do That Really Piss Me Off notepad to set the tone early with your new dorm roomie (a “morning person”) who’s all about Care Bears, smacking Corn Nuts and all-night baby talk with someone named Duff on the phone. Then curse the folly of taking “pot luck” on that housing application you signed. Get your point across neatly and effectively by checking single items or entire groups of deal-breaking behaviors that prompt you to Google “kidnappers for hire” as you seethe from the opposite side of the room. One pad is $6.97 at Blue Seven, 7518 N. May Avenue, but ask for a bulk rate. You’re going to need it.
