some rants, just because

This is my new car air freshener (it's Tart Citrus, a delicious aromatic cross between Juicy Fruit gum and orange-scented cleaning products; I LOVE IT! You can buy one here). I bought it on a lark - we don't really think I'm a whiner, bitcher, or moaner, right? Huh. Somehow its snarky attitude has infected me. Or I actually am a whiny bitching moaner. Regardless.

In this past week, I have been irrationally aggravated by:
  • PTA moms attending classes dressed like they'd been cleaning toilets [Not that I'm a fashionista or anything, but come on]
  • An adult woman with a six-inch tattoo on her leg of Winnie-the-Pooh holding a balloon [Tattoos seem like they should at least whisper "I'm edgy, with a dark side that might shock you"]
  • Early "last call" at the hotel bar [Especially when Derek #1 wouldn't hang around and let me adore him. In a completely innocent and non-stalker way, of course]
  • Subway worker's tone when she informed me the weekly special was posted "on the signs all over the store" [Can we just pretend I'm too busy to look around & you can be polite when offering me a deal?]
  • Radio stations gabbing more than playing songs [Would calling in to request them to SHUT THE HELL UP be persuasive?]
  • Forgetting my classroom keys in a different purse [I know; why have different purses anyway? It's a sickness]
  • My "regular" parking space being occupied by someone else TWICE [I actually got one closer to the building but was still miffed that it wasn't my usual spot. There is something wrong with me]
  • No waffles or granola bars on sale [Perhaps I should lodge a complaint with my favorite checker. Who will promptly do nothing but stand there looking hot. I'll try it tomorrow]

I know, it's a hard-knock life for me. At least it will keep me young.

Did you say Winnie the Pooh tattoo? On the leg?

I'm trying to understand why, pretend I'm enlightened and all, but no go.

I've been on a waffle/pancake making kick. (Don't know why.) Would madam like some for the freezer?

I may dress like I clean toilets, but I never actually clean toilets.

Funny lady. You need a long, hot bubble bath.

Don't get me started on sloppy dressing.

Damn PTA mom's and their toilet scrubbing clothes...I hate that.

Ah, half the people I see at CHURCH dress equally as sloppy.

Its an illness - no, rather a SYNDROME - than began with the loosening of business attire in the 90's into so-called "Business casual" that no one ever did "right" anyway.

Tacky tattoos further exemplify the deepening coarsness/tackiness/no-class image of our modern society.

On a cheeful note, I LOVE that car freshener!

Love the issue with the tattoo. Haha

You'd probably be "irrationally aggravated" by my Harry Potter tat, then ;-)

I totally agree with you about the tattoo thing. Winnie the Pooh? Seriously.

Everyone needs a rant day. Happy to lend an ear.
