rant...nothing to rave about...
I have no idea what "stage" of grief I'm in right now... it's all kinda blurry at the moment, but anger comes to mind... I'm not angry at Gag for jumping off the ride so early, or God, or life in general... but I'm just pissed off on some days... It's a good thing I'm not taking it out on the kids or my loved ones around (though my brother would perhaps say otherwise :)... but my anger seems to be directed at random things and people....like when my stupid remote doesn't do what I want it to do only to find out later that I was pushing the wrong button...wow. And since I don't have a punching bag or anyone around I can punch or any plates I can brake (like some therapists have prescribed to people in my shoes..) I've decided to let off some steam here, some of you have a "rant and rave" day on your blogs... but no "rave" subjects come to mind at the moment..
So... let the ranting begin...
First I'd like to announce that drivers in LA become morons on rainy days and on Sundays... (ok..so maybe I fall in that category at times too). What pisses me off is when you give someone the right of way... there is no thank you wave to follow at their end...or when they cut you off there is not even a sorry look on their faces. Oh and one of my favorites, don't you just love it when you are in a bit of a rush and somehow you always end up behind the person that has decided not to drive faster then 5 miles per hour...Ok, but this one is easy, I just yell out some obscenities or give em the old flip of the finger...anger taken care of...steam let out...
On to the next rant... why is it that people are in such a hurry at the supermarket while they are shopping but take forever to pay at the check stand... they decide to go deep into their huge bags fishing for the exact change... just get on with it already!...makes me want to (punch them in the face) give them the damn change... see you can't just flip them off, it's not that easy when you're standing right next to them, trying to not look bothered...(although I'm sure I've falling in this category too at one point or another).... whatever!
Moving on...PEOPLE!!!! when you are picking up your kids at school...there is a line of cars with eager parents all there to pick up their kids too, what makes you think that you can just cut everyone off to get to the front of the line then wait for your kid who by the way is still way over there chatting with his friends... is it really gonna make that much of a difference if you get to your child 2 minutes later?? does it make you the better parent for being in such a hurry?? I mean what are people ON these days?... geeese! The line is moving forward just fine... be patient and you'll get to pick up you son or daughter eventually, no..they will not end up stuck in school for the rest of the day and just in case you were wondering no one will give you a medal for getting to him/her first... ok enough about that! Rant point well made... (hmmm trying to think if I've ever done that before... I may have... oh boy am I in this category too?)
Ok, last one I promise... I think we should include Banking Transactions-101 as part of the curriculum in high school... because people seem to think that everyone loves standing in line forever at the bank. Some idiots chat on the phone or text while in line, then start filling out their deposit slip when they get to the window... MORON! How about you get your transaction ready before you get to the window... huh, there's a brilliant concept! Thank goodness for the merchant line, though it seems whenever you're in a rush, just want to get in and out... you end up with the teller who seems to be more interested in the way her hair looks...(constantly pulling her scrunchy off and tying it back on..) instead of your transaction... huh what's the screening process anyways when banks hire tellers...hmm..ok now I'm getting too mean...well at least I don't think I fall in this category...whew I was beginning to think this anger was directed at myself...hmmm
Anyways...I feel much better now :) Hope you all had a good laugh on my account...go ahead I don't mind, as long as you don't cut me off on the road... we're good.
Oh and feel free to rant about stuff in the comment box, go ahead let it all out.
love...peace...joy... and a good rant session at times
