What's your issue that you want to get off your chest.
No holds barred. No offense is to be taken from any statement.
This forum is a venting area for whatever issues. The release of negative energy will be warmed to a comfortable natural lift of weight off your shoulder.
If you think I'm wrong....put it to a test.
I plan on talking to some, to work out the issue, so don't take it wrong. There are some people who have serious issues and just some who need a place to vent their frustration.
I look forward to hearing whatever you have to say. Again, if a comment is directed at you, do not take offense or jump the gun, and make a witty comeback remark. This is for negative energy release, not to create more.
Thank you very much and I hope you feel better later.
I was doing good until I cruised by and Kimberly reminded me what a loser I am!
Colebabie, I would vent for you about all the shitty tippers in my restaurant career, but that was let go a long time ago. Still wish everyone had to wait tables or otherwise work for tips at some point in their life to see what it's like.
We were told as children to "reach for the sky" Achieve your wildest dreams Any thing is possible if you work hard enough.
So. I worked my a$$ off. Busted it right to pieces. Blood sweat AND tears. But, I did what I set out to do. I earned for myself all the things I wanted. woo hoo, American Dream, and what-not.
Now I'm supposed to sit right back and let it all be taken from me? Standing up for yourself is the new whining. How dare you complain! You're not homeless. Yet. Just go home and eat your ramen noodles.
At what point did it stop being OK to want something better for yourself? Am I really a giant selfish jackass because I want what I have earned?
Okay, since you asked...my ex-husband is an a$$hole!! He's very wealthy but has never helped our girls beyond the measley amount of child support he paid when they were younger. He rarely even made the effort to see them. For christmas for the past few years, he's spent $1.50 on each kid!! If he couldn't afford better and if they didn't need so much, I wouldn't have a problem with it. But he went through $750,000 in two years, with nothing to show for it.
This year, the prick faxed them what he wanted for Christmas. He demanded that they come down to his house and repair and paint the huge deck, caulk and repaint the front porch, clean out the attic, and put up new sheetrock in the garage and paint it. Thank God they had the guts to tell him no.
Well, I was planning on writing the Hub, but I was quite sure what way to turn, as in making a direct impact or slowly explain specific things in detail first and then get to the rant.
I ended up taking a different tact, which I feel comfortable with. Again, it worked itself out. And, I'm glad you're showing others a path to change careers. I'm presently changed my life in the same manner and the path has lead me here, to writing.
Just kidding. Really no one in particular. I'm just enjoying rolling that word around my mouth at the moment much like my 16mo old does with a new food. I'm directing it at all the negativity in my life in general. Hoping to rid myself of a little unwanted stress and move on.
Ok so I separated from my husband after 24 years to find out he is gay, then he is diagnosed with cancer and passed away this year, my daughter has a disabled child, I find a new love and new city but feel huge expectations from my children to fill ex-hubbies shoes (he was a perfect father and grandfather and dearly missed). They miss him and they miss me for having moved away and I sometimes just feel really bad. Life can throw some big adjustments. Still living and learning. Hope nobody is still awake to read this pathetic vent but I do feel better.
Alright... minor one from me, but I FINALLY get a date night planned with my husband. Babysitter arranged, night all set, tickets purchased. And everyone gets sick. Boo! We get better. YAY! Looks like we'll be able to go after all. I have to work. Boo! I'll get out early enough. YAY!
Now... IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!! Not, like a little Merry Christmas, Fa-la-la kind of snow. They are predicting up to 18 INCHES OF SNOW!! And I don't live in one of those areas where people know how to handle this. Seriously! Tonight!! C'MON!!!
last night coming home from a christmas party, we stopped for coffee at the drive thru and overhead there was a helicopter hovering low, then we watched to see it fly a short distance and land.
a major intersection that is generally safe with the traffic lights had 3 or 4 vehicles with flashing lights, the bayflight helicopter landed which meant someone needed specialty care at one of the larger hospitals~~
Dec. 18th and 19th are typically the biggest nights for Christmas parties, people driving drunk or buzzed. please don't drive drunk, and be extra vigilant while driving during the holidays. many will not enjoy the holidays this christmas for this reason.
Why the hell do I always get passed over in the sandpit in the GD games? I don't play very often, but I'll pop over now and then and add in a word or a phrase or whatever is the flavor of the minute. And, once again, my answer gets completely ignored and someone ELSE adds onto the friggin' answer in front of me and the next person answers THEIR reply and no one even bothers to read what I've written.... Or, worse yet, they read it and just decided it isn't worth their time and they have a better friggin' answer to give and why should they bother with my simple little phrase.
(I am thoroughly enjoying this ranting lunacy. I may spend my day here. lol.)
I just posted a topic on this as well, but while I'm enjoying my rant-filled day, I may as well post this here... I just checked my traffic sources and from one source, I have: -10! How in the world do I have NEGATIVE traffic? Have 10 people unviewed my hubs? Did 10 poor souls attempt to find my information and get lost in the vast wilderness of cyberspace??
I'm new! I don't have that much traffic to begin with!!! Please don't give me a black hole of viewership!!!
I am doing well. However, I do have ONE rant- I have been having this person "Douglas" posting comments on my hubs, without being a registered user of HubPages and he is really rude and extremely, like calling me a nitwit or pathetic and telling me that my way of thinking is bullshit and complete malarky or garbage. His exact words he using, I can't publish, because I've reported it as spam, several times now, but he keeps posting to all my Hubs. I also think that he continues to rate them down as well. And, I'm starting to get annoyed.
Here is my rant. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA hehe not a rant just screaming 'cause I am getting more nervous by the day...I only have today, tomorrow, and morning of MOnday then she comse out...she comes out....my MIL...*starts gasping for breath*
Slow it down there Crazd... or your going to turn into your screen name. Its going to be fine. She's going to love you. Make this your mantra. Breath, repeat. Its going to be fine. She's going to love you...
*breaths slower* phew sorry hehe almost lost it there. thanks TS. don't wanna turn into my screenname...yet I just hope that she does like me...and not think me too weird for her son even though we are already married and all...
I'm sure it will be fine. Like I said on your hub, there's always a little tension, you should expect that. It is, after all a new relationship, and they are always a bit stressful. But, you've got something very important in common - Her son. When all else fails, just ask her to tell you an embarrassing story about him. Even if the meeting is a strain, and leasts you'll walk away with some good blackmail material!
Today's RANT I'm trying to upgrade my 'puter. It won't take. I called tech support, gave them my serial number and product registration. They are telling me they see my account, but not the product. ????
My mac apparently went rogue and erased itself from existence.
I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was treated really badly by some petty hubbers. When I joined the AP program I fell...
A few weeks ago there was an issue with the wrong Google Authorship photos appearing in SERPs (i.e. Marcy's avatar showed up in the snippet for melbel's Hub). It seems to me, that ever since that issue was resolved, no Google Authorship photos show up any longer for any Hubbers. My authorship is...
I asked the question of accofranco, yesterday, probably shouldn't have singled him out. But as a relative newcomer only been here a bit short of a year...Took awhile to get writing, I really value other peoples opinions.For example you may think someone asks to many questions, or that they don't...
hub:/hub/Non-Destructive-TestingJust wondering like if there's anything I can do as a user to "hop" older hubs or something. I often come across hubbers with extremely low hub scores (like 1 or 5) and I was wondering if HubPages has a tool to like find these hubbers and then like manually...
I am sure that most of the people that subscribed to HubPages did so for one or both of the two reasons: 1. to be a "published" author/ writer; 2. to make some cash.The problem is that it is vey difficult to really make money from advertising and it will take a long time before you will...
Can hubbers still earn money from Pageviews when they have turned Ads "off" under Display Options?Many thanks if you can help. I hope the answer is yes because for some topics it is good not to have the reader distracted or enticed by ads which I might not necessarily wish to...
