Trapezoid of Annoyances

Inspired by Parks and Recreation‘s Tom Swanson’s brilliant “Pyramid of Greatness,” I have set about developing my own this week. Yet, instead of a pyramid, I decided to organize my LA-specific pet peeves (all 34 of them) into something far more powerful than a mere archaeological curiosity: A Trapezoid.

Please, add your own. I left the top of the trap unfinished because I am sure there are even more annoying things about LA which I haven’t yet discovered. I’m being optimistic here.

For reference: The Swanson Pyramid

    What’s wrong with tourists, having been one in LA. What happened to “high rent for small spaces”? Well, at least you don’t have to have snow/ice/freezing rain on the LA trapezoid, if you can remember certain blizzards on I-94! How about a pyramid of things you like about LA? The weather, the weather, the weather might be a start. And the beach!

    From the Urban Dictionary about “hipsters”: “Despite misconceptions based on their aesthetic tastes, hipsters tend to be well educated and often have liberal arts degrees, or degrees in maths and sciences, which also require certain creative analytical thinking abilities…Consequently many hipsters tend to have jobs in the music, art, and fashion industries. It is a myth that most hipsters are unemployed and live off of their parent’s trust funds.”
    Sounds like LA! What happens when they age????

  2. Funny thing is that as a tourist you don’t want to see tourists to be there… hm… always complicated… *LOL

  3. Haha…very funny. Just curious…what is your problem with North Hollywood?

    I tend to feel slightly rebuffed whenever you complain about LA. Complaining about LA=complaining about me? As a native, I feel like so much of who I am is defined by this city.
