    The Rant Thread ** Forum Rules Strictly Observed **

    Post by rainshadow on Sun Sep 01, 2013 3:43 am

    Ranting... it's the cure to what ails ya. Keep it clean, please. And I would suggest not picking a topic that would spawn a debate. Otherwise this would have to go to the heated discussion forum. This thread is just for fun... Forum rules will be observed!

    And, to start us off...




    Hotdog buns. That's right, hotdog buns.

    I wanna know who the hell is responsible for the cut on the hotdog buns. Because you, sir, suck at life. YOU HAD ONE JOB!!!!! I just wanted to enjoy a freakin' weiner with all the fixins... ALL ON A NICE, TASTY HOTDOG BUN!

    What I get instead is an angry rainshadow, tearing to shreds a bun that is cut entirely too thin on one side. ONE. ONE STINKIN' BUN was dog-worthy in this particular package. You know how many buns are in a single package? PROBABLY NOT, BECAUSE YOU CAN'T CUT. And without "cut" "count" just becomes "on", as in, if you were ON THE BALL you could count your buns and cut them too!

    ARGGGGGHHHHHHH! RAINSHADOW SMASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That is all. Carry on.

    Ugh.

    I'm supposed to be having surgery next week on a tumor I found on my saliva glad. I have no insurance so I'm paying for it all. Found a hospital cheaper then everywhere else. This morning (a week before my surgery) I find out that there is a height and weight restriction. I have to be under six feet tall and under three hundred pounds. I'm neither of those things.

    So now my surgical coordinator is calling around trying to find a semi cheap but safe place. While trying to make it so i can do it on the day I already planned to have it on. She's going to call me back. She is horrible at calling me back.

    AAARRRGGGHH! I just wish the universe would hand me a freaking bone once in a while.

    Its "I couldn't care less" people not "I could care less" obviously you could.


    Not that I'm normally a grammar/spelling Nazi but this one just bugs me.


    Now on to the fully qualified RANT.

    Why do people who pay no attention to politics get to VOTE. Its not like they know what they are voting for or against anyway. In addition if you have to be a citizen to vote and to be a citizen you have to have a grasp of English then why do we see signs "Vote Aqui" And if you have to show Photo ID at government buildings, to drive, buy alcohol, buy smokes, gamble and about a million other things why is it racist or discriminatory to require it to vote.

    Now rainshadow, I'm going to have to debate this one... the wiener bun cutter is no perfect human being. We ought not expect perfection from people only as human as ourselves. Plus we ought to have sympathy for him. Do you have any idea what it is like going into a class room on career day to have your child tell the class that your job title is "wiener bun cutter". He was probably depressed when he missed your roll.

    I'm sorry. If I am given "one job" and that is what I am supposed to do, I hear about it if I screw one tiny detail up. The weiner/bun guy only gets the same treatment I myself am accustomed to getting. :p

    I'm furious. I'm shaking. I feel like I would cry if my emotions would just freaking connect. I'm so angry.
    Months ago when an event happened in my life which threw me into a terrible depression I essentially had one person in real life who was around. That's my roommate and, at least at the time, best friend. He isn't good at being sympathetic or caring toward me though so he had me wear his jacket for comfort. I essentially wore it 24/7 and he conceded it was pretty much mine after a couple months. Fast forward - he met a girl and they've been dating. She stayed more and more, began taking over the space, and he continually treated her more warmly and me more coldly. It is to the point he is entirely cold to me and typically refuses to acknowledge my existence, and worse, when his girlfriend makes rude comments and jokes at my expense he really encourages it. Things that were special between us as best friends he has one by one transfered over to her. They're moving out soon, which he informed me of in a cold text. Whatever. The "final straw" to this all is that jacket. He has, at thus point, taken away literally everything else we once shared. And two days ago informed me that I needed to return his jacket. I don't know what my feelings are exactly but they are strong and definitely not happy. He and his girlfriend have continually insisted I return it, and I flat out refuse. I knew it was a pointless thing to hold onto if now there will be sadness and negativity attached rather than comfort or support, so I resigned myself to take a few days to unattach and then return it. But he kept insisting I return it, and I'm stubborn. It is nearly impossible for me to make myself do something if someone continues insisting on it. But the worst of it was tonight...he said that he needed it back. I refused. He said he would find it. I declined. Then he and his gf said I needed to return it for her to wear because she was cold and so she wouldn't stretch out his hoodie. Oh heck no. Firstly, I'm freaking sick of losing things that are important to me and being given to someone else without consideration or care about how I feel, secondly, trying to guilt me into it just pissed me off and makes me more stubborn. You're cold? Use a blanket. Maybe wear more than a braless tshirt and short boxer shorts. Put on your own darn jacket - which you would have if you hadn't become a friggin squater at my house. She didn't want to change or use a blanket. She clearly just wanted his jacket. I've even told him I would buy him a new jacket. No. They want thus one. Not because it means anything to them, but because it means something to ME and that straight up pissed me off. And hurts. That, too. Tonight while I was brushing my teeth he went in my room and found it, breaching my personal territory and taking something I was opposed to losing. He was walking back to his room with it when I saw him and he smugly laughed and remarked on his triumph.
    *this is where a little switch flips in my head*
    So, I informed him he couldn't have it, grabbed one end, and proceeded to wrestle him over it for the next several minutes, through the kitchen, knocking over the trash can, scattering trash, crushing said can, through the hallway, and into his room where I pried it free and ran to my bedroom door. And stopped. Frankly, I think I wanted to fight more, despite knowing I'll be bruised tomorrow. He didn't follow, however, so I went into my room and locked the door.
    Now....here is my life's dilemma. The same one I encounter over and over. He ruined the feelings in the jacket so I don't want it now. He wants it back and his wanting it back is what ruined it, so I am too stubborn to return it, plus seeing him or her wear it would always bring up fury. If I don't return it that'll cause a rift, if I do, well, that rift is probably already caused by me fighting for it. But I'm done with this bullshit. I'm too logical of a person to think destroying it would serve a purpose. And if I had someone keep it outside the house that wouldn't solve a darn thing - would just encourage him to go through all my things and cause more conflict. I'm just so freaking pissed right now. It isn't even about the jacket anymore. F**k the jacket. I'm just so furious whenever I am in this position of being paralyzed by my stubborn pride and other personality factors that all pull disparaging ways. And I'm really, very sad to steadily watch as I lose my best friend, piece by piece.

    Thanks for the hug *hugs* yeah....it has been hard, especially because for a year we were the only person the other could rely on, and I'm the only thing that kept him alive for most of it. We've been through a lot together and now it seems like he is trying to force it to be as pointless as possible.
