  1. Sometimes it's just good to complain about things that don't really matter, but REALLY MATTER!

    So, I have created this thread as a place to rant. (Remember all forum rules apply... be clean, kind, courteous... don't rant about members of the forum...[​IMG] DO NOT RANT ABOUT THE FORUM IN ANY WAY!)

    Rants can range from a car that won't start, to a band-aid that refuses to stick. (Very annoying.)

    Sometimes it's good to hear about others Pet Peeves... a little comic relief can be nice! [​IMG]

    So have at it and have fun!

    My rant of the day:

    Non-sticky band-aids. (Yes, I'm using my example). I actually do things with my hands. I clean, wash dishes, change dirty diapers, vacuum, Etc. It says on the box, that they are waterproof, and "More" sticky, but won't peel off my skin when I try to remove it. I dunno, but I'm thinking I might want the ones that will pull out every tiny hair it contacts, than have ones that slide off causing catastrophes while I'm trying to scrub down the pan a had BBQ chicken in last night! :hmm

    Do shoes not come with arch support at ALL anymore?? And why do I wait until school starting season to attempt to buy shoes?? Try finding a pair of ex wide 9.5 new balance 610s, the women's are not wide enough so I buy men's--well apparently every teenage boy buys them too. ok I feel better now. [​IMG]

    Quote:x2 !! Ugh I hate those little blood suckers! Just to work outside I have spray myself down with stinky chemicals, even then there is one or two of the buggers that home in on a spot I missed. By the end of the day I am hot, sticky, itchy and stinky! Is it fall yet? [​IMG]
  6. Its nice outside, I want to be outside but every time I go out it starts to sprinkle GAH! It can not make up its mind if it wants to rain or not, I do not want to be out there and trying to fix up the run to my small bantam house and have all my tools laying around, and THEN it will decide to rain, I know it will so I am just going to waste this nice day and wind up having to work on it tomorrow or Monday when the sun will be out and 90+ out *sigh* Right now its after 1pm and its only like 84 out. why me? lol.

  9. I got all excited finding two pallets at a house I did an Interior BPO on (cheap appraisal) and put the biggest one in my trunk. Guys cleaning the house out said I could have them . . .the tie down snapped loose and I broke my trunk. . . so now not only is my door "rednecked" tied because my son bent it backwards and knocked it off its balance so to speak, my trunk has one too. . .my poor little Honda Civic has GOT to hate me!!!!

    Got a thing from our gas company for this winter's fuel . . .oh yeeahhhhhh, you can lock it in at $1.87 a gallon for the winter, after you commit to buying so many gallons at that price . . .BUT reading the rest of the letter, you have to pay 10% down to "hold" that price . . .didn't have to do it last year . . . I paid faithfully, never was late . . .but 10% is a LOT of money I don't have and I know other people don't either . . .just gets me. Going to HAVE to find another fuel source. . . so I committed to $250 a month till March, that I don't have, and its going to break my budget into a thousand little pieces . . .this is just insane. . .we are going to hades in a handbasket.

    And the fairs . . . I know these venders have to make a living . . .but I watched a program on ID the other night where a carnival couple were murdered in their camper, and the killer(s) stole $20,000 that they had made that week at this fair . . .I can't even afford to go to the fair anymore because of what it costs for the rides and the food, which is grossly unfair. A friend of mine works the Shriner's stand and she told me she hated to admit it, but if they sell 2 elephant ears, they pretty much paid for their supplies for a TON of them. . .at $5 a pop, makes sense. But its hard on every day Joe's who are on fixed income or work at a low paying job.

    OK, I'm done.

    I HATE foul, and mysterious odors. I always have to be the one to ferret out the cause, and it is never pretty. Today it was the funky smell in the family van. Had to clean the whole thing out to find the source.

    Turns out someone had left an half empty baby bottle that had milk in it, lying sideways on the floor. UGH- it had leaked out all over the matts, and having been covered up by the diaper bag for a few days, it had started to rot. Had to pull out those matts and clean them. Blech!
