Why do you call me if you're only going to talk to the people in the background?

I enjoy hearing from you...but I really have no desire to start every sentence six times.

Thank you!

It is cold and snowing. The plows have not been out. WHY? It isn't that much snow?

Dear neighbor,

I got my butt out there at 7 am in 15 degree weather to clear the sidewalks and my driveway since that is where the bus stop is and temps will not get out of the 20s until Sunday. The snow will not melt on it's own, dear.

Where are you??? You no longer shovel sidewalks since your kids are grown? But yet you are oh-so-quick to call the county when you feel my azalea bushes are encroaching on the sidewalk. Hypocrite!

Dear Husband,

We are still waiting to find out if we can get financing help with the one house we really liked. No I do not want to "ask our realtor" to look at another house right now. There is a reason that the house is back on the market and selling for $40,000 less than every other house in the entire city. Stop sending me emails asking if I've driven by to look at it yet. UGH!

I hear you Kiki-my mom (who never calls so I have to call her) will have me wait if something interesting comes on the news. I want to get a DVR for such times, but she is too scared to use ATM's, so I figure the DVR would just collect dust.

ohh, this one for me too. i have a friend who lives overseas and she comes home each summer. if either of her boys are around, she CANNOT stop from acknowledging EVERY SINGLE THING they do.

on the phone i am suddenly interrupted with "good job jack, you ate all your carrots". i pause, wait for her to finish..... and i am interrupted with "now put your plate on the counter". i wait. and wait. and start again to be interrupted with "no. right there is fine jack". ARGH!!! i tell her to call me later, when the boys are asleep.

you are not doing them any favours by stopping in your tracks every time they look in your direction. something tells me their future teachers (friends, bosses, spouses) won't be so quick to jump to your special snowflake's every whim.

I do love you, DH. But since you stayed in bed so late this morning (you could have checked your schedule on your ipad to see when your first appt. is, btw), I get to feed the horse (achoo), clean his poop since it's trash night, and you forgot your phone, so i'll go figure out where your first appt is, hop in the car, and bring you your phone so you can get some work done today.

And please don't drink milk before you go to bed tonight- even ear plugs couldn't drown out your snoring at zero dark thirty this morning!

Good thing he's cute!

This is it EXACTLY.

And the most frustrating part: she will tell me an entire story, uninterrupted, while I listen and offer feedback. But the second, and I mean the SECOND, I start a story of my own, suddenly every child in the house is in immediate need of her managing.

I finally just give up and make an excuse to get off the phone. If I really want to share a story with her, I just text her.

Dear Fellow Motorist,

I understand that not everyone has a garage, although in our part of the world, 99.9% of households do. If you choose to maintain yours for a upcoming episode of Hoarders and not for the intended purpose of storing your vehicle, can you please remove the snow from it so as I am following you I am not driving in a cloud as it blows off your vehicle? And if you want to use a 6" opening in your windshield as your portal to the rest of the world as you pass me, driving at least 15 miles per hour over the speed limit (I know you're speeding because I'd doing 5 over just to keep up with the flow of traffic), can you please keep your vehicle in your lane?

Thank you.

Dear Scot and White, why do I get in to see the doc within two days but have to wait two months to get the test done he needs? Can you not hire enough staff to handle the workload? Perhaps if you treated your staff better? What if my vertigo causes a fall in the meantime, will you pay the medical bills for that? What if my hearing is being affected? will you finance the hearing aid?

UGH two more weeks to wait, have been waiting since early December.

I have no water right now. It's aggravating, but I could kick myself for not preparing. I've been seeing the FB posts about the situation and they've all said "low or no water pressure" not NO WATER for hours.

I should have filled buckets yesterday and expected no water at some point.

I have a picture of a motorist who did this the last week! Her side windows were clear from where the snow fell off, but the front and back on the drivers side, JUST enough clearing for her to BARELY see! The rest of the car, top and windows, had about 2.5" of snow on them! So dangerous! She could barely even check her blindspot!

Simply because you have your turn signal *on*, does not automatically ensure you a place in my lane. Rat bastards.

The charging stations in the parking garage are for electric cars. Not for you to park your non-electric cars since you don't want to park two spots further away.

I need that spot sometimes so I can make sure I can get home. How would you like it if I parked in front of the gas pump so you couldn't get gas?

Please just get to the meat of my evaluation later today - don't drag it out forever as you tend to do. I don't need to hear how wonderful you were when you were in my position and I don't need to hear about how I can improve based on articles you have read. I knew you when you were in my position and frankly speaking, you sucked. You only got ahead in your job due to body parts you have...

Does any post that you disagree with mean the other person needs medication? Does it really destroy your faith in the human race? Do you really need to be passive aggressive with calling the other person, "sweetie, hon, or dear"? Why does there have to be the over dramatization with the most ridiculous lame stuff that people post on a message board? I mean, come on sweetie.

OP, that bugs me too! When my friend's kids were little she did that all the time. I always made sure my kids were occupied when I called, or if they were acting up I would tell my friend I would call her back. If I were you, I would make an excuse to get off as soon as she started doing that. Maybe she would get the hint. It's rude when it happens often.

If you are going to change our macro pad macros, our keyboard mapping, and our system macros it would be nice if you told us the night before at least. About 500 people started work this morning unable to function. Also I know we are all in different time zones, but 10:30 EST is too late to let us all know what you did!!!

3 .5 this morning trying to figure out why nothing was working!!!!

Dear SIL, you whined and moaned all over FB because your DH received a wedding invitation addressed only to him. It was from relatives you can't stand and you see them only once a year. The relative's mother popped onto your FB rant to offer an apology for the mistake and invited every relative in the state to the wedding. Now you are bitching and moaning because you have to buy a gift. WTF????? Get over yourself! The world doesn't revolve around you. You say you can't stand these relatives so why do you want to be invited to the wedding?

Simply because you have your turn signal *on*, does not automatically ensure you a place in my lane. Rat bastards.

adding to this...
if you do NOT have your turn signal on I don't know you want to get over.. If I pull up and you flip me off it isn't going to ruin my day. sorry.
If you KNEW the right lane is closed and you fly up to the last second and I am already there I can't pick my car up and let you in magically. sorry.
If I stop at a yellow that will be red before I even get to it and you are 10 car lengths in back of me anyway I'm not going to say sorry.. again, the bird doesn't ruin my day. sorry

Can you tell my main road in my town is having a lot of work done? There are cops in parking lots waiting for people to screw up about every 1000 feet. I'm not going to be the one to get a ticket because you are in a hurry to get nowhere. Oh and on the highway - never try to drive faster than the car in front of you. I don't go in the left lane so you can go around me.. especially is I'm already going at least 5 miles over the speed limit.

I think its time to hire myself a driver! lol

Dear cats,
I was trying to clean the closet. Really, it's nothing exciting. I don't need you sitting on everything I'm trying to move. I reach in the closet and have to move you. I go to put something away and I have to move you. To top it off, you both managed to get yourselves locked in the closet when I was done. I was tempted to leave you there. Nosy little beasts.

Please stop reaching to grab the item farthest away from you. Take the item that is blocking the electronic eye that controls the belt. Can't you see that I still have a cart full of groceries but cannot place them because the belt won't advance.

Dear deer- stop running into our vehicles. I mean it.
Dear dh- don't lecture me about watching for deer in your totaled-out van because there "might be $800 selvage" parts in it. You've wrecked it 3 times. I could have waited 1 week to get my own car fixed from when the guy backed into it while you were bowling. I've waited 10 months for you to replace the deer dented fender anyway. Then I could just use your brand new Jeep that we are getting Saturday, which you already plan to soup up ($$$).
Thanks, dear. Btw, the next new vehicle will be MY dream car. Hugs

Now you start bashing cheaters on your FB? Give me a break and look in the mirror.

Dear Winter,
I am breaking up with you. You are way too cold. Please go away.
