Are you feeling angry about something ?
Do you feel annoyed, disturbed, enraged ?
Do you have problems, issues, frustrations ?
Do you feel like ranting ? Like throwing a 'tantrum'?
Throw Me !
Go ahead !
This is the Rant Thread
All comments a welcome. No matter what.
All is peace and tranquility in my life !!! maybe a few mosquitos I could rant about - but hey, we all gotta live ah ??!!
There's not enough space for all the things I'm angry, frustrated, perturbed, PO'd, enraged, annoyed, disturbed, irked, steamed, and generally not-too-thrilled about!!
....so I'm just going to have my third cup of coffee and think about daisies (or something)
Oh - alternate poet mentioned mosquitos..... I have lots of them driving me to point of murdering them too!!!
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
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?
Best Wishes Friend, Katie
I'm sick and Tired of all these beautiful women that keep banging[pun intended]on my door!
My house is Cluttered with all these damn boxes full of money!
My gourmet chef keeps feeding me rich fattening food!
My chauffeur drives to fast!
GOD keeps BUGGING me for Advise!!!
LOL sounds great ! send me a plain ticket! I feel like visiting !
I have even more reasons to like you.
Yours is a rant I will model from now on!
You too? I thought it was just me. But it gets worse. My contractor advises that the tennis courts,swimming pool and BOTH riding stable are going to have to be moved so that he can expand my underground vault.
Why oh why is it always the well to do have to suffer so.
It pisses me off that people buy domain names and then sit on them for years. Yes, I do understand why they are doing it, trying to make that 5000% profit and all, but still.
Well, you can do the same. You'll feel better about it !
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.
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.
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.
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. (but )
For some reason I'm still a Bank of America customer. Need I say more?
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?
The radio - they changed all the programs I used to listen to.
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)
Oh - school kids who make imbecile comments on my Hubs.
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.
Getting a little sick of hearing about Obama (in favor of or againt - doesn't matter; I'm sick of the name)
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!) 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) (especially women who wouldn't have cleavage if they didn't also have an extra 80 lbs on them )
I guess that's it for now. I do feel better.
Too many problems!. I'm sorry but your post made me laugh !
I can relate to almost everything, even I'm in other country.
About money ! I've been living on the Banks for almost 2 years. Now they want their money back! LOL Do I have it ?.... Can't find it anywhere !
tantrum, I'm glad it made you laugh. These days I lived so PO'd about everything I often laugh at all too.
Better to laugh than to cry. Crying won't change a thing.... Only if you look like Angelina Jolie !
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.
Thanks. Good idea, Tantrum. <cheers>
Rant, Rant, Rant! BP, BP, BP ! Oil slick, Oil slick, Oil Slick...that is unstoppable!
Why did my thread went from the hangover to the sandpit ?
Sandpit:A place for forum games, never ending threads, and other vacuous fun.
It seems this is other vacous fun !
Oh Well !!
No. Business has been waning. Spare a penny? I do a dance...
yeah i do.i want more money for doing less and a wife that doesn't talk too much.
What do you want, man, a steak or money? Make up your mind, you cannot have everything. And tell you wife to shut up. It' s easy and does not require any money.
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.
Ha! I shoulda known Tantrum posted this.....living up to your name!
Rant: Poor customer service. Make eye contact, little clerk, or you may not find me back in your store. I mean, you can fake like you're glad to have my business. Don't shove that sack at me. Don't say 'thank you' with no meaning! Put a little fake enthusiasm behind it. Geez.
Dear Dr. Tantrum:
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.
Spammer in the forum! They should be tarred and feathered and run out of HubPages!
Sorry, I am out of tarr! And my last chicken ran away with my neigbour, so no feathers either. Let's chase squirrels!
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*
I can never get those plastic packages open. You know the ones that wrap your possession in shoplift proof security?

I suppose I'm just trying to find out if I'm the only one with this particular "backlinking disability" (maybe it should be a new, officially-named, mental disorder, "BDD" - Backlinking Disability Disorder). This thread is part venting, part hoping someone can point out...

The current mantra on HP is that personal experience is everything. Research is not worthy.Where did this come from?I recently published a page about Animals that Fly, it got a score in the nineties and went straight to Owlcation. Well done to me.But of the twenty or so species on that page how...

I've freelanced for different written publications, and currently work for a print newspaper (a dying breed of media, believe me) and I blog as well. I'm new to this forum, just joined and posted my first "Hub", but I digress...Any thoughts/opinions on this changing technology?

I've often been accused of being arrogant, and it's usually by people who disagree with me about something. I've noticed that some of my favorite historical personages have also been accused of arrogance. What exactly is arrogance? And is it always bad?Is there any non-pejorative way to say that...

I've been walking and stair stepping and have just recently gotten back into weightlifting. I'm having terrible knee pain. I just had an MRI that revealed a long tear in my meniscus, along with a cyst behing my knee cap and a bone spur in the joint. There's virtually no cartilage in my right knee,...
