Some Shit I Need To Get Off My Chest

Recently I have been getting increasingly prone to getting pissed off by things that people have been saying to me, or around me.  So in no particular order, here are a couple of things that I need to vent before I start throwing dead bodies out the door.

  1. If you ask me my opinion on a topic such as politics or religion, you know that all you are doing is waiting to give me your own.  So at least wait until I finish a fucking sentence before you start to interrupt me to tell me where I am wrong.
  2. Along the same lines, if I express a fondness for a movie or a song, please be aware that taste in such cultural things is subjective at best.  If you don't like said movie or song, that is just your opinion.  It is not fact.  Last I checked, there was not a scorecard or a dipstick to check which is better.  Do me a favor and keep your god damned opinion to yourself about what a lowbrow idiot I am for liking something.
  3. I appreciate your concern, but please stop telling me that I need to get out more and that there is lots of help available to take care of Skyler so that I could enjoy a weekend away with Kathy!  The next person who tells me this will get my now standard response of "What time can we expect you to show up?"
  4. Hey managers at work, I checked the stats for the downloads of some of the documents that I have been writing.  They are in the thousands, and just because one person didn't like the organization of a quick start guide I wrote and compared in unfavorably with a document from HP, doesn't mean we need to have a fucking meeting to discuss the deficiencies of my documentation.  That comment probably came from an HP employee!
  5. And by the way person of importance at work... I joined that conference call early.  You know, the one where you told the people in the room that you didn't understand why getting the documentation was so hard, and that your third grader could do it?  yeah, I will remember that line, and if I ever travel to where you work, I will find you.  there will be words, oh yes.  And most likely blood.
OK, I am all better now... sort of.

  2. I won't discuss politics and it tends to piss the questioner off, which is the exact reason I won't discuss it. I refuse to argue.

  3. Since I can't really sympathize with most of that (expect the work part, which I read AFTER sending the email I just sent you!), I will empathize instead.

    And say that if I (or a close family member) doesn't hit that Mega Millions jackpot, I hope it's you.

  4. Most people only care about themselves today (yes, there are exceptions, I am aware of that ~ they're just not in my surroundings) and love to hear their own voice. So it's no surprise one doesn't get to finish one's lines when talking before getting interrupted.

  5. (((hugs))) If you lived closer the girls and I would be over there in a minute to help out with Skyler! I quit discussing politics with pretty much everyone. I don't take personally if you disagree with me, but just about everyone else does...not worth the aggravation.

  7. As for #1, I'll paraphrase Jane Austen. Some people just don't deserve the courtesy of intelligent opposition.

  8. Idiots are everywhere, aren't they? Problem is they don't know they are idiots. I remember an asshat at work once complained about "All These Mistakes" I was making. So I said "really, which ones?" There were literally two. In a space of 9 months. Within reams and reams of data I had gotten right. Two.

    Some people just like to bitch.

  9. Regarding #2, I always quote my late, great grandfather: "Everybody's entitled to their own stupid opinion."

    Isn't it funny how everybody knows how to run your life better than you do? Just a shame they can't run theirs.

  11. I agree with all you said, unless you liked the film 2012, because it's shittiness is a bonafide, objective fact.

    With respect to your person of importance at work, if you need any advice on which blood vessels to go for, just ask. Generally though, if you just use your natural instinct it will ptrobably be about right. Terribly, awfully right.

  12. You know, I can be employed to "take care" of any issues you may have with certain people. And by "employed" I mean for you? Totally free. :) I know this was days ago now but I hope things are better now?

  14. There seems to be a bad case of shitheadedness going around these days. It appears a lot of people you know have come down with it. Grrrr.

    ((((HUGS))))

  15. I have had #5 happen to me as well, except that it was my own boss throwing me under the bus. LAME!
