Stop... Please. Just Stop.

Seriously. Guys. Seriously. Just stop. Stop it, stop what you're doing... just... STOP. I realize you think you're doing the correct thing—but in reality? You're doing the opposite of the correct thing, which is the wrong thing. And as it turns out, you're doing a LOT of these wrong things. Like what for example? Here is a very abbreviated list:

You clip your nails at the office. While driving, you get easily confused, slow down to 5 mph, and begin weaving in between two lanes as if you just had a stroke. If you're forced to wait for anything for more than two minutes, you start dinking with your phone. (STOP YOUR DINKING FOR A GODDAMN MINUTE AND ENJOY THE WORLD AROUND YOU!!) You use the last square of toilet paper, and leave me with an empty roll, thereby forcing me to frog walk across the bathroom to the toilet paper cubby. (I DO NOT LIKE THAT!) If you're a kid, you're in the mall! Go somewhere else! Adults, you're putting too much pressure on me to perform—IN EVERY SINGLE REGARD. Even this list is pressuring me! Why can't you just take my word for it that you are doing everything WRONG and just STOP???

At least the following TV shows are having their season finales this week. While they all may be terrible, at least they have the decency to... STOP!!

Community (NBC, Thurs May 9, 8 pm). In the season finale, Jeff finally receives enough credits to graduate—but wonders if he should stay. DO NOT STAY, JEFF. In one short season this show went from being one of the funniest on television to a big pile of "meh." DO NOT STAY. Just... STOP.

Glee (Fox, Thurs May 9, 9 pm). It's time for the glee club to once again compete in Regionals—though now they're wondering if it's worth the effort. NO, IT IS NOT WORTH THE EFFORT, DORKS. You had one good season. ONE! And every season since has been a grotesque, butt-cringing disappointment. Pack up your eyeliner, your mashups, your Barbra Streisand albums and... just... STOP.

Survivor (CBS, Sun May 12, 8 pm). In the show's 26th season finale... wait. Did I just say 26th?? THIS SHOW HAS BEEN ON FOR 26 SEASONS?? My genital warts aren't even that old! Are you auditioning for this show? STOP! Are you watching this show? STOP! Are you Jeff Probst? Stop whatever it is you're doing, Jeff Probst! Just... STOP!!!

NCIS (CBS, Tues May 14, 8 pm). It's a real cliffhanger of a season finale when the feds threaten to shut down Gibbs' team for their unconventional (but effective) methods. Normally I'm a fan of unconventional (but effective) methods—but fuck these guys. I HATE THIS SHOW AND WANT THEM TO... STOP!!

NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS, Tues May 14, 9 pm). The fourth season ends with a nuclear explosion—but does it kill the NCIS team? No, because they are more stubborn than my 23-year-old genital warts! WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE BLOWN UP?? Stop it, all forms of NCIS! Just... just... STOP!!
