Another Pet Peeve

I previously told you I had a lot of pet peeves. I wasn't kidding. I just don't understand people sometimes. It can't possibly be just me. So here is pet peeve # 678. Have you ever tried changing something to improve it and been hit with the comment of: "Why did we change that? We have always done it that way". Well just because you do something a certain way doesn't mean there isn't a better way or more efficient way or heck just a different way to do something. I mean if we always do things the way we have always done them; I wouldn't be typing this blog right now. There would be no computers, no internet, nothing! In order to evolve we must continue to change. This principal applies to everything in life whether personal or work related. I can't understand how people can get so caught up in doing things the way they always did them and just trying to block any kind of change or progress because it is different than what they are used to.

I know several people like this. For some it is just a fear of the unknown, but for some, they are good at doing what ever it is they do and if you change the way they have to do it, they may not be as good at it anymore. For some it may slow them down initially as they learn a new way to do something and they don't like that. For others it is just flat out refusal. Either way, these people are constantly blocking progress. I just don't understand this. Now granted I don't want to change just for the sake of change, but I want to continue to grow as a person individually and professionally. I love watching a company take a chance and have that chance pay off and have the opportunity to have been a part of that change. People like me thrive on change. Change means something better is coming, opportunity is around the corner, something exciting and new is heading my way. Change means I will learn something new and be able to add that to the vast majority of things I already know. I love change. Maybe this is why I change my polish so much? Where do you lie on the change scale? Are you afraid of it or do you thrive on it, or are you somewhere in the middle?

Speaking of pet peeves though, why can't a company who makes the decision to sell polish take the time to name it? Heck, number it, I don't care, just give me something to call the color! I know these places are just buying polish from a manufacturer and putting their brand on it, but come on, at least name it!

This brings me to the polish of the day. I have another Charlotte Russe unnamed polish to show you. This one is a light pinky copper color. It is similar to the copper color from Orly - but maybe just a shade or two lighter. This is a pretty cool color. I can totally see wearing this one for a night out on the town. Since Charlotte Russe is too lazy to name it, I will name it for them: Copper Comet. It is flashy like a comet in the sky. Ok so I am no good at the name game, maybe that is why they don't name their polishes. What would you name this color?


  1. Usually an attempt at the name is on the price tag. That's what I've noticed.

  2. Not on this one - NOTHING! All the colors I grabbed have the same exact label. Weird.

  3. I know it's weird how CR don't name or number there polish but they have pretty colors :)

  4. I'm not good at the name thing, I've got no ideas. It is a pretty polish though!!

    I'm one of those people that might bug you.. I tend to be afraid of change.. except I also want things to change. I don't know. I confuse myself.
