Subject: BS: Rant Here!!!...............
From: Bobert
Date: 28 Apr 03 - 09:28 PM

Well, I'm madder than than a drunk at an AA meetin'! Ahhhh, nah, that might be a tad embarressin but, heck, if I was drunk, I wouldn't know it! No really, this BS/nonBS crap is all BS! And I ain't talkin' Boy Scouts either!

Makes me madder than my couzin Rufus was when I told him that most of the NASCAR drivers are gay! Yep! Boy, was ol' Rufe was hotter than a three dollar pistol. Wouldn't talk with me fir three months!

And how about all these SUV'ers who think that because their wimpy butts are behind the wheel of a gas guzzelin' sled of an automobile, that they are now the meanest and badest people on the planet?

And how come you don't get milk anymore with the cream on top? Yeah, that really gripes me...

Well, ol' bobert could just go on and on but....

...this is a "Rant Here" thread fir any Catter who has found the Catbox over flowin' or has anything else on their mind.

So, an open invite or *challenge* to all you folks who got a rant 'er two in ya'!

Have at it...

Bobert

If it makes you feel any better, Bobert, take note of the fact that the center of balance on a SUV is higher that 95% of the highway guard rails in the country. It's only a matter of time.

Someone comes along and gets a little worked up and someone else takes 'em out fir a little talk! Well, I'm done with these little talks!!!

And thats another thing. Like how come Spaw gets away with saying that he invented the fart! Hey, that danged things been 'round for millions of years, yet Spawzer comnes along and marchs into the patent office and get a danged patent on the smelly things! And now he's collectin' royalties on 'em! Now that ain't right!

Hech with "Cheers", Hester, this is yer opportunity to open up the four barrel, to shoot for the moon, to shed those demons and to step forward and say, "Hey, I'm not takin' this crap anymore. I hate people who throw their chewed gum where others walk!!!"

This thread is for rantin!

Not for folks to stop by and say, "Tsck, tsck. Ranting is for common folks."

Man, now that really gets me! Ya throw a party fir a bunch of folks sufferin' from a severe case of poly morphis perverse guilt and they sit around talking about the danged weather! Now that one really get me!!!

Danged....... Grrrrrrrrr........

Hey, if you all can't think of nuthin' in world that bugs you then you can just rant on ol' bobert, if that's what it takes to get the pump primed...

And I'm still not too happy about having Spawzer with the "flagilation market" cornered.

SOme things make me so mad I could just suck the lips off a carp. And one of them is people picking on people. Like that gantlet ole Hester went through -- talk about Twistems, man, there weren't two straight thoughts could be rubbed together from the time she first posted her question to the time she tore up her sheepskin in disgust!! And now she won't even rant about it!!

And another thing is all these people that aren't checking in -- ya know what I mean?? Matt_R_who used to be Mbo, goes off and gets a life, no word from him for over two years!! And then he shows up and says "why are you-all sti9ll talking about the same old crap?". Now that takes nerve. Ole LEJ is out in the world o' busyness just scraping his nickels to gether to pay the rent, and there's a mess of other guys that used to say really intelligent htings around here got driven off by the numbskulls, trolls, badgers and fart-flamers. I swan, a waste of beautiful conversation pit, you ask me.

Now another thing makes me mad enough to just stick a golf-tee in my ear -- that's these guys who think it is terribly clever to pretend to have a snide, condescending and Universal point of view and then don't even put a name on it!! The gaseosity of it just gets up my nose sometimes, I am here to tell you.

Now slimy things in recipe books is another item I woudl like to vent on. And then there's C-average political entities with the brains of a box of wet rocks. And... and..


...hmmmm....   

Gee, thanks, Bobert. I feel much better.

How are you doing?

Oh thanks, Bobert, I really need a place to vent about my Marine Brat boss who is just doing her best to make my life a living hell.

She fails to grasp that I was a Union activist with the City of Chicago in the 80's --- those of you who know Chicago get my drift. There ain't nuthin about street politics I don't know; smarter people than my current drill sargeant boss have tried to make me look bad and failed. I know this game. I DID leave that job once the Union was in because I don't LIKE this game, but I am a master.

Oh, and my UU congregation seems to be in the process of committing hara-kari. 20 people are out for the minister because he is honest about the fact that he is bisexual, although in a committed heterosexual marriage. They come up with all kinds of reasons he is a Bad Person but it is still rank homophobia and they're being jerks and tearing apart my refuge from the storms of life. I could just spit.

Andd people who don't like cats ...

And good dancers who won't waltz when I ask them

And the occasional snake-about-women who won't take no for an answer, your reputation precedes you now go away,

diabetes regimen is high on my I-don't-like-you list

knees that quit long before you are ready to give up folk dancing

aphids on my roses

cats that run away to die alone and break your heart

A/C condensers that go out and stick you with a $530 repair bill']
[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[p;[

cats that walk on your kkeyboard, thinking whatever you are doing could not POSSIBLY take precedence over petting ME ...

'scuse me; I'm gonna go sit down and pet that cat ...

Good one, Spawzer. Ahhh, excuse me while I get up wind of ya' but speakin' of upwind, how about then younginz these days who think its cool to, ahhh, stink. Makes me madder than getting caught in a dead elevator with a bunch of Republicans!

Come on, Hester, I can feel that you are close. May as well just let it out right here and now. You're safe here. Ain't like those other "Punch the Horse" threads where ,you gotta walk like its thin ice. You're with friends, dang it! So come on and let it out, Baby!

Man, how about the folks in front of you at the grocery store who discover at the last moment, after the clerk has loaded a hundred dollars worth of food into bags which are now in the cart, ahhh, that these folks gotta actually pay for the stuff! Like, what a novel concept! Ya gotta pay for the stuff! Hmmmmm? Now we have anoyther 5 minutes of fumbling thru the pocket book trying to figure out how to accomplish this major feat? Hmmmmmmm? Makes me reconsider my satnd on capital punishment!

Don't get me on a rant, I spent over 3 hours ranting last night from everything from comparative religions to how long I'd been with a particular person and how my opinion of them has changed because of some things they did to me a while ago and how they keep on doing it still! Then we started on marriage!

I have aphids on my roses too..... gonna go and squish 'em later today.

I also have 3 cats who demand attention. A previous cat was so demanding he managed to jump on the keyboard, corrupt the C drive programming and save the corruptions. We had to strip down and start from ground level again! Gonna spend some time today petting and loving all three, then nuke the buggers with anti flea juice.


Then there is the (happily now ex) manager who is still insisting that he is above all health and safety requirements - he's fixed his desk so that it has created no fewer than 10 hazards, and that's before he sits down! I point it out and I'm picking on him, I don't point it out and he's at risk... as a risk assessor and H&S rep, I can't do that! ARRGGHHH!

However, it is a glorious day outside, after a rainy one yesterday, there's a blackbird singing just outside the window, I've got the day off work and a full sized chocolate rugby ball to eat. There are good things in the world, you just have to be a pessimist - that way, you are prepared for the worst, but it's always a lovely surprise if things go right.

People who expect the express lane cashier to pack their ten items or less should be barred. And those people behind you in the long line who dash to the newly opened cash shold be tripped and trampled. And people who don't understand what vehicle turning signals are for should be run off the road. And... arrrgggh, it's hopeless. People are so impolite nowadays. Or stunned. Or both.

Minor Rant!!!
Up here in Maine this Winter the roads have taken a beating from all the frost and ice/snow. Result....Potholes..well actually more of a cravass than a hole!! Anyway....after driving through one really bad stretch, you come through it to find a sign that says..."BUMP" and the implication is? Like you didn't feel it at the time!!
Security caps on some medication containers. My neighbor called me yesterday to open his medication as his Arthritic hands couldn't get the cap off!! he had been trying for 2 hours before I came home...where is the Logic!!
and I have to rant slightly about the people that post here nameless and then proceed to verbally abuse folk on the Forum. I know I know, rise above it,I am taking my lead from the more experienced members but Dang if it aint hard to keep your react fingers still when someone is just being cruel and malicious:>~
Well there you go...don't amount to too much really considering some of the troubles around but sometimes it does you good to just say the little stuff. Thanks for opening the door Bobert.

Well, I'm not going to sit here and be cool, so here goes:

Ah HATES snails and slugs!
Ah said, I HATES SNAILS AND SLUGS!!!
Puts me into quite a brew,
They eats mah new little plants, they do.

Ah wants to put dynamite in they little pants.
Whenever Ah finds 'em in my plants.
'Sted, Ah squishes they little heads
And mashes 'em til they's a heap o' dead.

Ah had purty pansies and p'tunies, too
Lookin' so sweet in the early dew.
But WAIT! Than ain't dew, mah dear!
It's slimy slug and snail trails, all a-smear.

So Ah puts out cans and cans o' beer
And they speed SLOWLY to drown in 'ere.
Onliest problem, they sent out word
Now the alcoholic gastropods come in herds.

(Now, don't pedanticize on me, I never said I was a poet, just a really pissed off gardener. Thanks, Bobert, for a much-needed thread!)

I have an SUV. My butt isn't wimpy, and I don't think I'm the meanest, baddest person on the planet. It fits my needs, and yes, I do go off-road with it, and carry stuff in it.

We used to be able to get milk with cream on top at a local produce specialty store - they got it from an Amish dairy in Illinois or Ohio. I don't know if they carry it any more. Something REALLY yummy, though, is the Brown Cow organic yogurt with cream on the top. It's not cheap, but neither are candy bars, and it makes a much more nutritious treat.

This week, my biggest gripe is people who think they are "leaders" just because their job title has the word "director" in it.

   On the way, I poke my head into a little jewlery shop and see an absolutely gorgeous set of Black Hills Gold cufflinks. Then it dawns on me: . . . . . its damn near impossible to find a shirt anymore with Freedom Cuffs !

" I hate it when someone refers to a posting of mine and twists the meaning to fit their agenda .."

Ditto, kat. Although my latest experience of this probably had a lot to do with not going out of my way far enough to ensure my words expressed my intentions clearly. My few months of experience on the Cat have taught me many things - and that's one of them. So thank you all for the education!

I've come to understand that posting on a discussion forum is much like performing a piece of music in public. Difficult pieces of music require much practice and preparation before they are fit for a public hearing, if justice is to be done to the music at all, and the performer cares about their reputation as a musician.

It's the same with posts on the Cat - man can a lot of godawful wrong notes result if the message is inadequately prepared! Hurtsa my ears, to say the least!

Anyway, that's my not-quite-a-rant for today - sorry about the drift and thanks for listening!

I assume it is possible that you are referring the jokes I have submitted to the joke threads lately, although I received no PM from you on this matter. Certainly, I did not wish to offend. Certainly, I had no idea that you had already received six copies of each joke. Certainly, I figured you for a 'Cat with the capacity to refrain from reading threads which bug you. However, in the interest of being a good boy sprout, I shall not post any more jokes. I hope this brightens your day by removing one more crumb from your breakfast table.

GNU-- do you not understand that a rant is just that, a chance to blow off steam, not directed at anyone to DO anything about it? There is no need to change what you have been doing, unless a Midcat administrator messages you privately about it. Many of us enjoy the jokes, and not everyone is in the same email circle or sees the same jokes-- the new one posted today, I had never seen, and it made my day.

They should all be sent somewhere where they can do these various things and leave the fecking theatre to those of us who are there to watch the fecking movie!!!! Or they should just be shot.

Then there are those fecking 24% of Americans who voted for Dubya. What should happen to those idiots I cannot even print here! Well, I could, but it might get me in trouble...

Then there are people who wear baseball caps backwards! AAAARGGHHH! NO fate would be too horrible for those morons!!!

Then there are the teenage girls who, like, have to say, like, "like" between every, like, four or five other, like, words they, like, say, because, like, they are insecure? They also, like, usually end their sentences with a, like, question mark in their voice? Cos they're , like, insecure? Like...know what I mean?

    As a corollary to your outrage about backwards baseball caps, I get the same sensation as a fingernail on the chalkboard when I see folks wearing a hat (baseball or otherwise) in any orientation at the dinner table or in a restaurant. I don't care if it IS Mickey D's place, you don't wear a hat when you eat indoors!

My Daddy always said that a gentleman takes his hat off in the house. This was, apparently, a common practice in his generation.

I am speaking of course of Madonna, who now adds the children's author string to her -- bow, saying she couldn't find any books about values, and like, they aren't about anything.

Well, who did she ask? A knowledgeable bookstore person? A young people's librarian? Does she read books she bought at Kmart or Walmart? And why did she wait until her kid was 2 to start reading to him, anyway? Why does such a great mother not know you start 6 months, at the latest?

Or might a c54allruslewsd (cat) I callously think it is a shameless self-promotion ploy for her book, which just happens to insult the talented writers and book people already in the world?

Everyone in my field is waiting with bated breth to see what the material girl, whose first venture into publishing was hard-core porn, thinks is a book about "Values."

Rant;
I do not like lawnchairs at a concert. The ones that are right up to the stage. The ones that keep you from dancing up front. The ones that are placed right up to the stage and no-one is even sitting in them, but saving a place for later. The ones that are taking up space for two people and in the way when the late dancers decide to get off their asses and dance.
Sometimes I don't care for the people sitting in these chairs either. The ones that don't even tap a toe and look bored out of their brains but looking so smug that they have a lawnchair right up front. The ones that throw shit at you if your in their way, because they can't see in their nice little lawnchair, boring, lazy seats.
The thing I don't like most of all, is realizing that I am not getting any younger, and maybe would consider a lawnchair for myself one of these years! Oh Lordy, Lordy, please let me keep on dancing!

Bardford, that's masterful! Great summation!

I really, really dislike people who talk in languages other than American in elevators, under the impression that they're carrying on a private conversation because no one else is intelligent enough to understand. If the subject is that private, then go somewhere private to talk about it! Otherwise, speak the language of the country you're living in! Or at least a facsimile thereof!

People who think grammar is not necessary, spelling is strictly inventive, and sentence structure is an old wives' tale. Actually, thanks to those people, you keep me in proofreading work, boring as it is!

Billboards that flaunt "it's" when the word should be "its" and vice versa! Books, ditto. Newspapers, ditto.

People who have the temerity to censor Shakespeare, for God's sake! (My high school English teacher, for one.) And the ones who attempt, through meaningless and repetitive argument, to change my opinion on politics, religion, or any other damned thing I don't want to argue about.

I'll tell you what really gets me though. College. Those of you in Mudchat will already know my gripe about that!! They mess me around way too much!!!
First I get told that the College Production is going ahead early April.
Then I get told that one of the venues has cancelled.
Then I get told it's going to be postponed cos we're not ready.
Then we get told it's not going ahead at all cos people have dropped out.
Then we get told that it is going ahead with replacements.
THEN we get told that it's not!
THEN we get told that we're filming it. It's getting stupid!! AND we've got our Devised Drama exam during half term, AND we've got loads of essays, tests, rehearsals, coursework, etc, etc, etc to do!! At this rate they'll have the whole cast dropping out of the Production from exhaustion!!!!

Another thing that gets me is when people whinge incessantly. There's a guy at college who does that. I punched him the other day!! I'm usually quite calm, but I lost it and belted him one!!

You really shouldn't have started this thread! I've got tons more to complain about, but I'm going to resist the temptation....

And as for buses!!! The number of times the timetable has been rejigged in the year so far!! I'm surprised I haven't missed more of them!!

And I hate narrow minded people who reckon their opinion is law and nobody else's counts. One of my lecturers is like that. He'll ask a question and ask your opinion on something, and then, when you've said everything you want to say about what you think, he'll turn round and say "Yes, well, really you should think this, this, this, and this." He's just asked my opinion on the subject!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well danged, how about folks who tell ya to get "back on yer meds" or ya got "too much time on yer hands", like my pal Dougie? Heck, I'm on my meds, thank youvery much! And as fir time? I ain't got none. Between the P-Vine's endless "honey-do" list, remodeling my house, runnng a coffee house music series, playing music and sitting on not one, but two, danged *blue-haired-old-lady* committtees in Leesburg, I ain't got no time! None!

But worser than than, what really gripes me is that ya can't hear no decent music on the radio anymore unless it's thru the pudder! Nope, the air waves ain't worth the surfin'. Might as well throw that danged radios in the trash. And television ain't far behind...

Makes me madder than Lester Maddox in a Freedom March...

No. Ahhhh, that would be stupid, Bobert!

Okay, makes me madder than Don Rumsfeld with laryngitis! Yep, that works...

Fuckin' commercials and ads! Does every square foot of the planet have to have a logo or advert on it? 10 minutes of TV program and a 12 minute commercial break... I can barely follow the puck on the hockey game for all the logos and billboards on the damn rink. Have the ref blow a gratuitous icing call because it's time for a commercial. After years of viewing, it's getting so I can't concentrate on anything for longer than 10 minutes before I need a commercial break to rest my brain (subliminal suggestion, begin; the grey matter is vulnerable now!) I pay for the cable channels but apparently I still need the logo in the corner of the screen to let me know what I'm watching. And who drops 30 large on a vehicle because the commercial says I can drive around town singing along to the radio in my new overpriced ride which depreciated in value 40% when i drove it off the lot?

People who don't think I'm as funny as I think I am. Idiots.

People who fart and laugh and joke about it. Those of us who don't fart are exposed to this insensitivity constantly, from childhood, and it's hurtful, and damaging to our self-esteem. It's been especially difficult for me, coming from a quiet non-farting family, and now married into a gregarious, operatic, farting clan.

Couldn't agree more, Fred. These gratuitous farters must be stopped. They are offensive, tedious, and not funny.

Cluin - I hate advertising just as much as you do. The best place to go where you can get away from it is Cuba (but not for long if Uncle Sam succeeds in taking over...). I really miss the days when you could rent a video and not have to see ads for 5 or 6 other totally undesirable movies before you get to see the one movie you actually paid to see. (You can FF through them, of course...you don't have that luxury when sitting in the movie theatre.)

People put up with this crap for two reasons. 1. They don't know any better. 2. There appears to be no escape.

Those are the same two reasons for why people put up with a political party system that doesn't really represent them, and a democracy that isn't real either.

OK, granted, voting is important, but it's the elections for the new Student Union President and Vice President at the moment, and I've decided, on perfectly legitimate grounds (i.e I'm not at college next year!!) and I go up to ask people whether soemthing we've arranged is still on, and I get "Have you voted yet?" from one of the candidates. Fair enough, i explain, and she comes out with "So?? Vote anyway! For me!!!" I walked off. I was irritated as it was.

Oh, and another!! Small children on buses whose parents don't get them to modulate the volume level!! On the bus today as I was going through Whitley, a small child and it's mother got on. I was upstairs, the small child was downstairs, but I still got a headache from it. And then, more small, noisy little brats got on the bus as I was going to college!!!! It sounds like a zoo!!!!!!!

I don't mind small children, except when they're screaming for no reason. I felt like throwing this particular small child and it's associates on the bus out of the window. One of them even attempted to hit me. I nearly slapped the little brat!!!!!

From the "wrong" side of the bar ...


Drinkers who, no matter how long they have been waiting to be served, say "Errrrrm ....", and who take five minutes to make up their mind what they want to drink, with everyone else waving tenners and apparently dying of thirst.

The customer who asks, "What flavour crisps do you have ?", makes you rummage through all the boxes and announce every obscure flavour before asking for "Plain".

The ones who say, "Oh, and a pint of Guinness, please", at the end of the order. Guinness takes several minutes to pour, it is like watching paint dry. Why couldn't they ask for it at the start of the order, so we can let it pour while pulling everything else.

The ones who disappear from the pub to answer their mobiles while you try and ask whether they want anything else, collect the money or proffer change.

And the ones who stand, oblivious to polite requests, blocking the hatch leading from behind the bar to in front of it. I can postpone collecting empty glasses, but I have to get down to the cellar to change barrels now. Just you stand there like a lump a bit longer, mate. I'll show you what being a prop forward is about.

Announcers, reporters, or advertisers who somehow have acquired the idea that yelling at people is more persuasive. I hate it.

PC's that pretend they're doing something, when they really dies like a dog half an hour ago.
Days that start out cold & teeming with rain, the change their minds and turn into heatwaves, just so that whatever I dress in, I'll either freeze or boil.
People who are clearly suffering from something both debilitating and highly infectious, but come in to work anyway. Then they do nothing useful, but sneeze all over everyone all day. Thanks for sharing!
Helpdesk callers who say "It just went funny all of a sudden" and expect you to know what's wrong, presumably by figuring out telepathically what they did to it that they're not telling you.

How about the ones that claim to have done something "over and over" - but when you walk them through it it works? Or the ones who say their usename was ALWAYS xxxyyyzzz when the creation date on their account as aaabbbccc is five years ago?

Or the ones that deny any knowledge of ever touching the database/file/document/whatever, when their username is stamped all over the "fixes" (=random changes) they've been making for days...
