    I've recently cut off a few "friends." Talk about nosey, needy, gossip girls (and a couple of them were guys....). I also commissioned some artwork from an artist friend, and so he "reinterpreted" what I wanted even though I gave specific instructions about it. He chose an entirely DIFFERENT subject, and then expected me to rant and rave and gush over his very bad choices. So I paid for the artwork, and am selling it off. He is mortified that I would do such a thing and hurt his feelings.

    Some people are complete idiots. Self-serving, egotistical nincompoops.

    I'm glad to unload such human drivel.

    There. I'm done. I feel mucho better.

    Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, the play was just wonderful.

      Well, you know artists ! they are always in some kind of fit.LOL
      You did the right thing.If you don't like what he did, and have been kind enough to pay for it, now that artwork is yours for you to do whatever you want.
      I wouldn't have paid and would have tell him what I think of his attitude lol

        Daniel Carterposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        To be truthful, I only paid half of what he charged. That's also part of the rub. Like tipping your bad server a penny at a restaurant.

      Self absorb people are in large numbers.  I'm so laid back and easy going with zero desire for confrontation and yet there is always someone trying to P me O and it just amazes me that they get angry when I don't respond in a negative manner yet just blow em off with a matter of fact what ever....

      Daniel your a sweet heart.  I would have declined the art work exclaiming well this is a nice piece of work so where's mine?  leaving them to explain and consider that yes in fact this is not what you ask for but what they were trying to shove down your throat. 

      Aye, you want I should head over there and have a wittle chat wit dat artist?

        I do, oh.. I do. I'm a hypocrite. It's just that I've been trying to pick up some new domain names for projects, and everything is taken. The people that I do contact want several thousand dollars, even after I try talking them down in a variety of ways. Luckily, I do have a healthy amount of my own to pick from already, some of them I got several years ago and are diamonds in the rough.

    Let's see....

    The biggest thing that comes to mind is that I'm stuck living in Massachusetts, the most awful state in the country as far as I can guess. mad

    Then there's the usual stuff about people finding ways to take up way more grocery-store aisle space than they'd use if they didn't keep their hand on a sideways shopping cart and let their kids push toy carriages on top of it.  mad

    There's the fact that my nearby Dunkin Donuts keeps letting flies get on the croissants, even though I e.mailed them about it a few years ago.  mad  (but lol)

    For some reason I'm still a Bank of America customer.  Need I say more?  mad

    Oh - the mosquitos.  I can't go in my yard because it's like living in the jungle.  When you live in New England it shouldn't be like the jungle.

    Lawyers - need I say more?  mad

    The radio - they changed all the programs I used to listen to.  mad

    Apparently, Black Widow spiders on my fruit are a new thing I need to watch out for.

    A little too much talk about money going on everywhere there these days (never a good thing for a person who thinks money should be seen and not particularly heard about)  mad

    Oh - school kids who make imbecile comments on my Hubs.  roll

    And, of course, that old stand-by among aggravating things:  People who cannot have a conversation about anything at all without bringing up a certain religious figure.  mad

    Getting a little sick of hearing about Obama (in favor of or againt - doesn't matter; I'm sick of the name)   mad

    At this point, I'm also sick of hearing about "healthy eating" (I've never been too bad about that, but now I'm actually thinking about developing bad eating habits in protest!)  mad  I'm sick of any "bandwagon" causes, whether or not they're worthwhile.

    I'm sick of seeing cleavage everywhere I look (on tv or in real life)  mad   (especially women who wouldn't have cleavage if they didn't also have an extra 80 lbs on them    lol  )

    I guess that's it for now.   smile   I do feel better.  smile

    Shadesbreathposted 6 years ago

    I'm tired of having to spend so much time in pursuit of money rather than something of purpose.  I'm tired of how life turned into exactly what Emerson said it was and that emptiness and the pursuit of "stuff" has bound our ability to fully experience the tiny flicker of life we get on this planet.  I'm tired of greedy f-cktards whose intelligence and ambition gets to dictate how everyone else has to live, and I'm tired of the god that made it like this or the fact that there isn't one who gives a crap. 

    Ahhhh.

    Thanks.  Good idea, Tantrum.  <cheers>

    Here's another rant:
    I'm selling my home, downsizing to three rooms. I'm lucky because I'm SELLING it, not losing it. So what about the loss of equity. I have a roof over my head. So what about downsizing, I don't have to worry about SO MUCH CRAP. The stress of selling, moving twice (also moving from an apt. at the same time) is exhilerating.

    I'll need a break after all this. I feel a vacation coming on. I'll rant about that when I know when and where I'm going.

    Dear Dr. Tantrum:

    Rants: 

    Tile floors suck & my feet hurt.

    I can't find my bedding boxes and I had to buy new sheets and mattress cover for my son's bed.

    My kitchen is smaller than in MN.

    My house looks like a move in disaster; my husband invited people over to see it tonight!

    My husband keeps unpacking boxes before he leaves for work and leaves the stuff he unpacked on counters/tables for me to put away.  I'm not ready to put it away yet, that is why it was still in a box.

    I miss my daughter.

    The sprinklers do not work and we have a small swamp in our back yard and in the middle the grass is all dead.

    I have no clue what to do with 20 plus rose bushes.  Why would anyone plant 20 rose bushes?

    I'll be back.

    Thanks again, Dr. Tantrum.

    Actually, Tantrum, all kidding aside-I do have a rant!  I have a 22 year old son who is an ASS!  I love him to death-haha-but would never choose him as a friend.  People closest to him seem to walk on eggshells all f*** day long because of his rage issues.
    I am going to explode very, very soon.
    And I'm one of those people whose actually nice, you know, and don't like to hurt the feelings of others.  But he's got my BP up so high that I think it's time to kill him-JOKE-before he kills me!

    I have a new rant for the day, as I struggle to lift my fingers on the keyboard (no lie) and fight to walk from room to room (yes, that's right).
     
    Rant: I'm the biggest dolt for not wearing insect repellant on the cattle drive 6 weeks ago.  Had I used it, I never woulda been bitten by ticks, never would have contracted this horrible sickness (Lyme disease) which holds me back, keeps me from excersizing, keeping me home from work, and making me more angry as I attempt to find a Lyme literate doctor within 500 miles!!!! 

    To top it off, what really ticks (ha) me off, is when I finally found the one infectious disease doc in town, the receptionist gives me the 'speak to the hand' routine over the phone creating more blockades: "You need a referral, he's booked through September"....come on, chickie-pooh, couldn't you have said something POSITIVE to me on the phone, like 'his schedule is very full through Sept....perhaps we can work you in if we have a cancellation'?  There was no empathy there, only crisp, abrupt dismissal. I corrected it, after she told me the line "If your symtpoms become worse please go to your closest E.R. to be evaluated by a competent E.R. doctor".  Ha!! I told her, "Ma'am, I work out of every E.R. in this county, I know all these doctors so you don't hafta give me the spill."  She softened up after that.

    I'm going into the tick-killing business.

    wow donotfear that's rough.....

    I have been wanting to get this off my chest for like 2 years....

    I'm sick and tired of people doubting my sexuality just because I choose to be single and have no intrests in any way,shape, or form. It seems to me that where I live, it's considered NORMAL for a guy to go without a girlfriend, but it's WEIRD when I girl goes without a boyfriend. I don't want my grades to be in the toilet just because of some breakup or that 'so-and-so' might be cheating on me.....

    I don't mind if your dating, but if you make assumptions like that, than be prepared to be (verbally) beat-down, I can't go a week without someone asking me if I'm a lesbain or bisexual or whatever. I don't mind if that's your prefrence, but not me, in America it's called being single, and I'd like to keep it that way.

    I want scholerships that could pay for schooling that prepares for a job that will support me for that rest of my life, NOT a boyfriend who could cause my grades to go down the toilet just because of the ending of a relationship that wouldn't have worked out in the first place....*fumes*
