    I am getting sick of these dumbsh*** weather people they get on the news.... they point at a location on the map and say it's County A, when it's actually County B, say that a storm system is going towards a town that isn't even in that location, and doesn't report that there is a FLASH FLOOD WATCH. Seriously! If there's a severe weather alert, you report it! I wonder if this person even knows what the hell a hook echo or bow echo is on the radar screen. Poor geography skills, and poor reporting. This one gets a C- for weather reports.

    Oh, and then there's these weather reporters on the news that look way too pretty for the job and really aren't all that knowledgeable about weather, don't even have a degree in meteorology, and yet they have the nerve to say that the National Weather Service is inaccurate with weather reporting. I'd like to see those weather reporters try analyzing several weather models from computer simulations and attempt to predict what is going to happen, without being delivered a script through a teleprompter.

    I much prefer the true meteorologists that know what they are talking about.

    All you need is the Weather rock. 100% chance of weather.

    Pretty much as accurate as sticking your finger up in the air to figure out if it's windy! LOL

    Is it too much to ask for a Chinese restaurant where the take-out food comes in those cool little boxes instead of the lame-ass Styrofoam containers?

    Now I hear from sister that she'd done it again, and when sis complained (rightly) she said that she had a whole box full of books and she had to sell them. That was NOT the intention! Why, if I tell her "I'd like to be a writer" and "I'm happy to be a teacher, too" and "I've got a rough week at school, Class Such-and-so was acting up again" and "Don't push my book unto unwilling people" and "Here's a box so you've got some extras for when you need it", she only hears "Tamske wants to be a writer that badly, she's unhappy at her teacher's job, she's given me a full box and I feel obliged to sell them"?!?!
    Now is as good a time as any to take this rant back. Turns out sister was exaggerating and in a foul mood herself (for an unrelated reason) at the time of our conversation. Sorry mom.

    Why, oh Why???

    From my efforts you made £17850 in July. You are now going to back pay some employees to April. I ask and i'm told 'NO' .. Just because today was my final day, i was still working for you when this decision was made public. *Deep sigh* I'm glad i left as this is not a nice way to treat staff.

    Oh yeah, businesses are no longer fair

    Take out the f*cking lenses, have a nice (hot for the tense neck, cold for the damn heat, you decide) shower and lie down for a moment.
