ha ha, well if I can find something to vent about it would be having to clean my house. Would be so much better if we had a magical maid to clean up after everyone. As well as wish I lived in a positve peaceful world. Of course we could do without trolls on hubpages and on the internet. Well I don't have much to vent about, or maybe I do, just not coming to mind at the moment. lol
I guess I could vent about one of the richest men in America, Warren Buffet, giving 95% of his wealth to charity where 60% of that goes to charity executives and marketing. Why not do what some of these reality shows do? Go to small businesses in distress all over the country and fix them, educate the owners on what they're doing wrong, and bring the small business into his network.
Venting, hmmmm, I guess I could vent about everything because sometimes nothing seems to go right. But today I will vent about the way the economy has gone. So many people out of work and so many businesses closing down. It's sad to see and hard to accept.
I know. Every time I get one I keep trying to remember that it's just some kid on the other end trying to do a job. I wouldn't even answer it but I'm waiting for Publisher's Clearing House to call me with the million.
hang up on them immediately......or um, a friend of mine who used to do this in his free time was to keep them going thinking they are selling him something lol and after 1/2 hr or so, say "Oh , I really don't have a house, so you can't sell me a pool" or whatever. But you have to have alot of spare time (and a few beers) to do that.
"I'm sorry, I'm a little busy right now. Can I have your home phone number and I'll call you back tonight?" "I'm sorry, sir, we're not allowed to give out our home number." "Then why are you calling me at my home?"
+1 on the telephone solicitors. I keep getting calls from a firm that has 'reviewed' my credit card & they want to offer me a great rate. No matter how many times I press the button to take me off the call list, and no matter how often I've stayed on the line just so I could demand they remove my name, I still get the calls. One guy had the nerve to tell me I was violating his 'free speech.' I've reported it, but you can't easily trace their number.
OMG, schoolgirlforreal! I was JUST heading over to the Hubbers' Hangout to post a VENT and voila, here is this golden opportunity. I love that you put it under ANGER MANAGEMENT. Brilliant.
Here is my vent du jour. People who come onto your hub (random people who obviously don't have a hubber account) and tell you you have completely missed the point of your own hub. That you are wrong. Even when your hub title and intro make clear the criteria for the list you have compiled -- dumbass people come over and apparently don't read the title or the intro. Just lambast you because your list doesn't include (in this case bands) that they think it should. Despite the fact that YOUR criteria for YOUR hub make it clear that the bands they are proposing flat out do not qualify for YOUR list.
I am used to being told I am wrong. I can handle being told I am wrong. Sometimes I actually am wrong. But not this time!
Ha Ha, I don't understand why people can have an account on hubpages that don't write in the first place. I understand we have forums, but you should have to write hubs as well, it does seem like a writers community.
My three year old apparently has access to a dimensional porthole from which she can pull crayons, sharpies, and play-dough at will. She uses this porthole for evil the second that I am cleaning up any of her (or the cat's) messes. You can't get sharpie off walls with a magic eraser and fake play-dough doesn't come out of micro-suede couches. You know, the light baby-blue coloured couch that now has neon yellow spots.
Got a little guy with the same magic porthole, he loves defacing the white refrigerator, when he is not looking I use toothpaste, yes toothpaste and it is magically gone. He runs in defeat and there is a minty fresh scent in the air of mommy victory.
Him: You gotta be completely obvious with guys, that's how we understand (what you need or want). Sorry to break that to you.Her: Then I guess I should be a lesbian.My opinion: I would want a guy to act on his hopes and...
When I go to create a hub and it says something like "someone used this title" and I attempt to go forth, HubPages gives me an error page. When I go back and change the url (and not the title), it lets the hub...
I'm very happy with the results of the niche sites. It's a win-win for HubPages and writers like myself. But I'm a bit curious about the process for choosing Hubs that go on those sites.One of my most successful Hubs on...
