Thread: The Rant Thread
05-10-2010, 05:58 PM #31“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

that's just EVIL... he's so attached to the dog and I LOVE having a dog around... and my sister took my dog with no intentions of giving him back because the two of them didn't get along... that was hard enough to part with him and now I lose her too?! :steam:
she'd better be glad that she wasn't where the wall is or she'd be eating through a straw

SO there is the ad I hear on the radio at work.. satellite Radio out of the USA (where competion still exists)
And this grocery store advertises their " 100% Guaranteed Cheapest groceries anywhere or your next shop is free. Compare online against these 4 other competitors and if your bill comes out less with their prices ,we'll pay your next shopping bill with us".
This sounds good.. until right at the end of the ad, when someone says about 100 MPH , "Some exclusions and terms and conditions apply"
SO what's my rant?? well it's not 100% guarunteed then, is it?
Terms and conditions and exclusions do not equal 100% ..
Nor does limiting it to the 4 other National chains.
I don't know why this kind of stuff bugs me.. but it does.

To that random man offering me advice while laughing: MIND YOUR OWN GOD DAMN BUSINESS. DO WE LOOK LIKE A CIRCUS SHOW? DOES IT NOT LOOK LIKE I AM TRYING, YOU SLEAZE BALL.
My god I hate it when people are pretentious assholes in expensive suits; break their faces in - and that's a general comment. WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THEM? :steam::steam::steam::steam:
most parents want their children to be independent, ambitious, driven, brave...etc and you are encouraging me to be a ... what exactly? housewife with a limited job? useless daughter? unfulfilled dreamer? Alice Paul is ROLLING in her GRAVE. don't you pile that nonsense guilt on me just because you are not strong enough.

This will not end well...
But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...
Hmm... But what if it does end well?
Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
A sort I could become accustomed to...

Why do people let the phone ring the maxium amount of times until the answering machine picks up, listen through the whole message, wait for the beep, and then hang up without saying anything???:steam:
