Everything that's pissing me off right now

I'm in a mood. Ohhhh oh oh I'm in a MOOD. No particular reason, except possibly the time of the month (sorry for the TMI, Dad- I know you're reading). So today's post is going to be a vent post, sorry for the negativit, I'm really anti-spreading negativity but sometimes ya just gotta get it off your chest. And usually once I write it all down I kind of giggle and am like well that was silly and kind of embarrassing...So here it is, my embarrassing list of everything pissing me off today.

1. Work e-mails that basically just say "Hi this isn't working, can you send more options". Oh! You know what? Let me use all the helpful details you included in this email to generate a solution! I'm sure I'll be able to come up with something that works with this wealth of information you included!



2. Mouth noises. MOUTH. NOISES. We are in a meeting, you're going to need to take a break from the nail biting (ripping) for about 30 minutes. Practice. At home. And is this man SLURPING HIS SANDWICH? Like I have never heard someone make SO. MUCH. NOISE EATING A DAMN SANDWICH.



3. Andi's selective attention: Andi (my dog) has been digging in the yard and I read that this is happening because she doesn't have enough mental stimulation and we should try learning some tricks. So you know what we did? Andi and I have spent ~20 minutes/day practicing tricks. In the privacy of our own home with no audience, she can sit, lay down, and come. As soon as one person is present or we are outside- forget it! Even if there are treats. Even if there is REAL BACON. This dog.

4. To follow up on #3, I also read that giving her a kong full of frozen food/Peanut Butter/Chicken broth mix should "mentally stimulate your dog for hours". Well guess what? This diva tried for all of 5 minutes, got a little taste of what was inside and decided she was over it. Literally brushed it to the side with her paw, rolled her eyes, and sauntered off. More time was spent putting together this concoction than "mentally stimulating" my dog. This is who Andi is on the inside:



5. Speaking of dogs, I just un-friended a few people on FB because I am tired of reading their anti-pit bull statuses.  Look, I understand that there are 2 sides to everything, but this is something that has information to back it up- The American Veterinary Medical Association released statistics showing that dogs are most likely to bite when they are unsocialized, kept separate from the family, or abused. So OMG! YES! Banning a breed aka Breed Specific Legislation is definitely a solution! I mean just look at Andi- she's dangerous, she'll cuddle you to death! Not to mention the fact that confiscating and euthanizing a pit bull costs tax payers $68,000 per dog. PER DOG. Man imagine what we could do if we put $68,000 towards each students' education in America... but nah let's put it towards something that has zero data proving its effectiveness in the 10 years it has been happening.

6. People saying Beyonce and Jay Z are divorcing. Just let me live, people!

7. The insane cost of weddings. We were so awesomely within our budget....until we did our walk through and realized every last thing is an add-on. Oh you, the bride, want to walk INTO the ceremony space to walk down the aisle? K well you're going to have to pay to reserve that area right outside the door. You don't want someone having a crazy loud party in the space next to your's which are divided by WINDOWS? You're going to have to reserve that too. You want hot sauce with your food? That's an extra like million dollars.
This is actually insane. My friend sent me this video yesterday and it is 100% true.



8. Loud phone volumes. Did you not know you can put your phone on silent and check it once in awhile? Or even vibrate! The miracles of modern technology!

9. Also, do you have to have your phone turned up to 1,000,000 decibels to listen to this song/watch this video? On the bus/metro/in the office? It is hurting my ears, there is no way this is enjoyable to you. Also, what is the point of headphones that sound just as loud to me as they do to you while they're in your ears?



10. Jenelle on Teen Mom. Why is she so fertile? Why isn't she in jail? Why is reproducing? Why did her son say he wants to teach his baby brother to punch his mom and she laughed?

11. People hating on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Just stop, you heartless people. This is bringing awareness to a good cause and raising tons of money. So just stop, haters.

12. Justin Beiber. Why is he still here?

13. Everything I saw in Food, Inc. on Netflix last night.

That's all I can think of for now. Sorry for the negativity. Cheers to a positive Friday right?

  1. dont apologise! ranting is fun :) sometimes you got to get it off your chest! Mouth noises though seriously are more dangerous than pitbulls, why you ask, because i will freaking cut you if you continue to slurp that sandwich. GAH.
    ps. I agree wholeheartedly about the pittbulls. I have a pittbull (cross) at home and he is the sweetest - dumbest - dog you ever did meet. down the road a family raised these horrible mean rottweilers and i am terrified of rottweilers now purely because i saw what those dogs could do. I would never condone putting them down though, and for $68,000? what the shit.

  4. Mouth. Noises. I can't. I just can't. The sound of people chewing makes me want to hit them with whatever food they're eating.

  5. Great post. I can't stand Jenelle on Teen Mom either. I've always said people should need a lisense to breed. Case and point.

  7. Sometimes you need a good rant sesh. It is always entertaining to read too and I found myself shaking my head at all of these!!!

    I hate when people have no manners while in meetings...or eating in general.

    Dogs can be their own person sometimes. My dogs are OCD and would have worked that kong until every last morsel was gone...but that is also part of their problem. If they loose a toy somewhere they cant reach, they will obsess over it until they can have it back.

  8. I love the rant posts myself... it's so liberating!!! I missed teen mom last night but Janelle cracks me up. It's really a damn comedy. And if I ever get married again it is going to be no frills, I want like a twinkie cake and a igloo cooler full of PBR or something:)

  10. New reader here, but madly in love with this post. I have a pittie who literally wouldn't hurt a fly. She has been chased by cats and frogs and is terrified. So tired of people talking out their ass about it.

  11. AW! Super Hugs for YOU!
    I laughed at these - but I feel your pain - on each and every one of them. Except the dog one - I have cats - they live to roll their eyes at me. With that said, I should post more pictures of their Hysterical ways - and faces.

    The wedding gripe - oh sister, I'll be here for you when you need to explode about this - I was told that if we wanted pre-ceremony water brought to where people would be congregating - it would be $65... To GOLF CART WATER AND A TABLE 20 STICKING FEET. But, yeah, I'm here for you.

    And a little vent spree - is good for the soul!

  12. I was at Walmart earlier and I was thinking it might be fun for one day to confront people about their selfishness. Like the guy talking on his cell phone stopping every 10 feet (in front of me) when it was his turn to talk. Or the person zipping around the line of traffic that is trying to merge. Once started it is hard to stop...

  13. While I was reading about the mouth noises I was getting grossed out over some instances of excessive slurping, smacking, chomping and inhaling I have heard. Uncalled. For.

    I am appalled by the gross amounts of money being charged to people to have a beautiful wedding. Ridiculous!

    The crap on teen mom is exactly why some kids are the way they are. Sad.

    1. PS, I saw a video on FB where a pitty was chained up and a man was TAUNTING the dog. Flailing, taunting. While someone video taped it. The dog broke lose and bit the guy. I am saying - who thought it was a good idea to 1. taunt a dog 2. taunt anything much stronger and faster (I'm NEVER going to taunt a bear) 3. video tape said taunting. This crap was pre-meditated abuse!!!

  14. uggh some days are just like that. Those are the days when I have to just stay away from Facebook, forget the projects (wedding...etch), and do something great for myself. Hope you find a great way to take care of yourself tonight. Fill your bucket back up so to speak :)

  15. I don't know why people are hating on the ALS bucket challenge - but I bet it's because they are jealous they haven't been nominated LOL!! Also I had a mental image of your dog walking away not interested in what you had made her - made me giggle! Friday is coming :)

  16. Hahaha Linds I laughed/agreed with every single one of this. LOVE this post. :)

  17. I love your mood! Rant my friend rant, sometimes you need to let it out. Pitbull hate makes me so mad because they are the best dogs and people are stupid it's obviously the owners and not the dogs. I've seen people baby their poodle and tiny yappy dogs but no one ever hates on them. I don't understand why weddings have to be so expensive and part of me thinks people are getting married later in life simply because we can't fricking afford it otherwise!

  19. We all have those days. I joke with my co-workers that I shouldn't be allowed to come to work certain days of the month. I keep it under wraps but inside I'm screaming mad obscenities. Hope your weekend is better!
