If you're not angry....you're not paying attention!!! Yeah, I'm angry....angry the way this government is spending our money, rushing bills of more than 1000 pages through congress without ever having read them and in record time. So fast that no one knows just what the consequences are until it's too late. That seems to be the strategy of the Obama administration...pass landmark legislation quickly before anyone asks questions. Inflate every issue to crisis proportions to justify quick action, all to achieve a claimed social injustice but the reality is more of the same, enriching the few at the expense of the middle class. You're damn right I'm angry and yeah, I feel like I'm getting pissed on!
I am pissed off at the fact that I am still in debt due to the birth of my daughter. Our healthcare system sucks. I am not making a political plea, either. The fact that I had to pay $500, out of pocket, to get blood drawn just sucks. It is expensive enough just to feed and clothe her. The bad thing is that I have insurance! And, it was still an arm and a leg. Oh well, at least I have my baby.
Davinagirl, I can identify with your situation. It was a long time ago, but when I had my baby and one of the "best" insurance plans available, it still cost us thousands of dollars. The insurance would cover me and the baby (if the baby had medical problems). He was born 6 weeks early and was said to be "a healthy premie", so we had to pay for weeks in a special care nursery until he gained enough weight. To me, being "too premie" to go home or drink without using up too many calories means "technically having a medical condition". To the insurance company, of course, that's not how it works. I'm still PO'd about that!
You wont find me again in those 2 forums. Pisses me off big time. Its either burqa or no burqa, terrorism and fundamentalism(?)sharia or freemasons. Gosh, i had enough of that for now. If i feel like pissing someone off, some extreemist or religious fanatic, then i'll go there and give them a piece of my mouth....post....click-writing. Whatever, i'll do just that.
my car was busted to shit yesterday on the way to work9not my fault tank goodness) there is a crator in my front yard from a gas leak my dog died my parole hearing with an offender lasted 3 1/2 hours (normal is 30 minutes) my boss was pissed all day at everything my back and neck hurt from whiplash... if that's not enough, read my funny hub page about bad days...
Yeah actually I'm pissed right now. I just had a hubber with 0 hubs and 0 fans write a negative comment directed at me and not at the issue. I fully expected negative comments since the hub was a review a TV show but I didn't expect someone to tell me that I should be watching nature shows. Yeah, maybe I'm a little over sensitive but I just like people to direct their comments to the issues and leave me out of them.
Ok here's one, why do people insist on talking during good films (movies) at the cinema? I was just there watching the new Johnny Depp film and some jerk behind me kept making snide comments thinking he was funny:
"Ohhh, it's slow motion, that means someone is going to get shot..."
"Wow, how boring is this film?"
"This is slow, quit talking and get shooting!"
"GET YOUR T**S OUT FOR THE LADS!!!"
IT WAS SO ANNOYING!!!! Just because he didn't have the intelligence to understand the fricking film...grrr...
Okay, I am pissed off that I wrote a short blurb about Walter Cronkite on BzzScapes. The person who created it corrected my grammar. I said Walter Cronkite was once known as the most trusted man in America, she said it should be Walter Cronkite is known as the "Most Trusted Man in America". Well...to paraphrase Steve Martin: excuuuuuuuuuuuuuuse me! I didn't know I was being graded on it.
No point in getting pissed off. It clouds your judgement and is unproductive if you just vent. Now, it's a choice as to how you handle the anger -- me, I just turn it into power to accomplish something.
My cat Lily, has just recently started to sleep on top of my huge LaserJet printer. She is a SUPER lazy cat (all cats are pretty lazy...she takes the cake!), not to mention, she is huge. A big ball of adorable, furry...
Do you think it's okay to ask for Sundays off although you were hired under the assumption that you could work weekends? I was not born-again three years ago when I was hired at my current job but now I want Sundays off.
