Rant, it's like "ant" but with a big fucking R in front.

It's been awhile, but it's back - the rant post! I guess I've been at peace with a lot of things in my life and havent felt the need to in awhile.

1) Using the word "real"

We live in such a fake ass world that people feel the need to specify what is "real". Oh how I wish we lived in a world that was the opposite and everything was just assumed to be real and you had to label if it was "fake". I was in line at Taco Bell and they have those new Fruitista things and the sign said "Topped with REAL Strawberries". *blink* Wow. People we are in a recession and the lowly fake strawberry farmer has it hard enough already without you helping to put him out of business by buying all these REAL strawberries.

2) kk

I hate the net lingo response "kk". Ugh it's such a waste. I'll just assume you agree if you dont tell me otherwise. I dont need you to divert my attention back to your message window to read your damn "kk's". I hate it even more when i accidentally use it.

3) People that cant name one Tina Turner song

Do yourself a favor, find one and enjoy it and memorize it.

4) People who claim they never pick their nose

What-the-fuck-ever. You know you have. Hell you might be doing it right now. It's your nose and your finger and as long as you're not wiping it on me or stuff I own, man, go balls out.

5) People who dont understand the width of their own car

I hate when people veer left of center because they cant judge how close a parked car is to the right of them. I'm not talking a little bit of lateral motion but a HUGE weave into oncoming traffic. Sure some streets are so narrow that with parked cars they turn into a one lane road, but most streets can accommodate four cars abreast and you should figure out that you can squeeze thru there and if you cant judge that distance than sell your car and buy a bike.

6) People who are rude on the phone, but polite face-to-face

You know what jerky? I know where you live - I can come to your house. I hate people who think they can say whatever they want on the phone to you that they would never in a million years say to your face. Stop hiding behind the absurd fact that a phone call is interrupting your private time and a knock on the door isnt and then that somehow leads you to behave in any rude or childish manner you choose.

7) The loss of "regular" size.

Go to McDonalds and order a "regular size" Coke and watch the person's brain explode as they try to figure out what size that is. Maybe I'm just getting old now, but does anyone else remember when a "regular" size was a medium?

  1. Cory, I don't think I have ever agreed with you about an entire post. LOL. I just ripped a hole in the time and space continuum.

    : )

  3. Yeah #5 and #7 are my favorites.

    I have a better one though about fast food...

    I love that now when you go to McDonalds they have prerecorded greetings. So this bright, cheery, happy voice says "Hello! And Welcome to McDonalds! Would you like a fresh Chocolate Chip Cookie today? They are three for a Dollar!"

    At first I was like wow, what a refreshing experience. I really admire that someone in what seems to be an entry level type job still has the work ethic to go above and beyond the call of duty. This person is surely going to have a very successful career if they always take the opportunity to show they can do a great job.

    Then I say, "No, thanks. I would like a number 1 with a diet coke, please". And this guy chewing gum and slurring his speech says "K, fur nine-y sevun, drive around" with a tone that says "I hate this place".

    I scrubbed toilets, bagged groceries, stacked boxes of cooked turkey, and built pallets before getting into IT. And I did a great job at all of them. I hate that it seems like many have lost the mindset of going above and beyond and earning a promotion or better job instead of going into interviews acting like we need to be talked into taking the job.

  4. I agree with you Joel.

    Wow, let me stop first. This is awkward. We're all agreeing on something. =)

    Anyways! Yeah, I agree, people complaining about having to go to work and having to get a paycheck, really pisses me off. For the fact, they have a job and some don't!
