Spoiled brats that doesn't value anything.

Remember one time, this 16 year old at my store was being a bitch to me and to all the staff there because mommy apparently got a black iPhone 4, she wanted a white one and proceeded to yell "This is so unfair!" "You people should get what I want! I'm the one who pays your paycheck!" "You people are soooooooooooo rude!" "This is horrible!"

She even threw the iPhone 4 at my head. My Dad banned her from the store.

First of all, you know what's unfair? I get to work my ass of while you get everything you want and still bitch and whine about it. You don't have a job, so I hardly doubt you even have money for my paycheck.

The funny thing is, we are the only store that has the iPhone in my area and this girl went back and tried to get one. "To replace the one that got destroyed".

I said "You threw it at my head. Get out!"


My head is fine now, hurts like hell though.

I noticed that those people don't stick around on my facebook very long. I think they get tired of my happy posts. I'm also lucky that most of friends and family who are on there are positive, loving people who, even in bad times, manage to find the humor in life.

That said... my facebook rant is that it pisses me off that I quite often censor myself so as not to offend a few of my conservative Christian family members. It irks the hell out of me that they post Bible verses several times a day and go on about how great it is to have God in their lives, and that's fine. But if I hint at anything related to atheism, I'm being offensive. Fortunately, it's just a few folks, but even so. Tolerance, people!

Yeah, I'd do the same if it weren't such an easy way to be a lazy friend. But I do have some friends that moved away and had kids, so it's a little easier than calling them.

90 percent of my family is the same way and I feel like I have to tone down my sense of humor, language, etc. It is quite annoying!

I agree with all of you.

My pet peeve is...
My mother is not computer literate and she is the worse person you want to help because if it doesn't work she thinks it is the machine's fault, not her!!!!

Devices that doesn't work for you but "obviously it works for the employer" I get that bit all the time. So I bring it home thinking the person knows what he/she says and then just turn around to bring it back. I found you don't have to have much experience you just need to know how to sale it.
I go to the computer store here who actually knows what they are talking about. And when I talk to them of the specs I want, they don't look down at me "I am a woman I guess I am suppose to be stupid when it comes to gadgets like these"
sorry if offends. But tried not to.

Default Bait and Switch

This really makes me want to spit...It's the second time i've purchased an expensive cell modem and had the sales folk say 'YES! It's unlimited data plan' only to have the carrier move to a five gig limit shortly thereafter. First was AT&T and then i got a way cool Virgin MiFi to use with my wifi only tablet. I would be angrier but i know when that branson guy buys the farm, sid vicious will be kicking his but for half of an eternity.

Rant : What ever happened to CHOICES ??? ONE SIZE FITS ALL!! THE "UNLIMITED" DATA PLAN!! $360 A YEAR STUPID SMART PHONE!!!!!!

Ok,

So I read about the top 5% of Verizon users having their bandwidth being throttled ... So is it that they have lots of techies who use all the toys and BW so they need to have the network infrastructure, maintenance and expansion subsidized??

Basically I would use the 3G aspect very rarely and would be in the bottom 5% !!!!!!

I would just as soon have a plan where I'm charged for what BW I use or at least some granularity instead of one size fits all ...... They must feel that there is sufficient demand for them to make it a take it or leave it proposition... So If it's to rich for my blood then don't let the door hit me on the way out !!!!


I guess I'm going to wait for the worm to turn and for them to decide they want in betweens like me ! Another "featureLESS Phone it is !! ( Hear the gears grinding ??)


Let me know when your network doesn't need me to be a forced subsidizer instead of a subscriber !!! What ever happened to CHOICE ???

F--Cing christian hatemongers.
Chick-fil-A controversy shines light on restaurant's Christian DNA – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs

Why can't all humans be treated equally?
I don't agree with gays or lesbians... but I don't HATE them.
Instead, these christian haters insist on saying 'god loves everyone' EXCEPT [insert list here]

Why!.......

I volunteer 8 hours a week at my local animal shelter, am a foster parent of 2 dogs and 1 cat to help relieve the load off the shelter to save 3 animals at a time from euthanasia, have suffered through 4 losses of foster pets whom I loved with all my heart due to illnesses, and help the shelter get animals adopted into loving homes by taking shelter dogs to loca events on weekends. I've volunteered over 250 hours throughout my high school career at the animal hospital in my hometown. I eat poultry, beef, and fish. I used to be vegetarian for 3 years and vegan for 1 year. I dare anyone to say that I don't genuinely care for and love animals. I absolutely love animals and do whatever I can for my shelters that I'm apart of. I hate it when vegetarian calls anyone who eats meat as people who doesn't truly love animals. Ive done so much more for animals than so many of them have done... And i mean in actual activism and actions, not just giving up meat. As a former vegetarian, I understand what it means to be vegetarian. I am sick and tired though of preachers. Do the nonpreaching vegetarians a favor a not paint a bad image for all vegetarians because preaching only annoys and doesn't do ANYTHING for people who already don't want to "convert".

People who expect me to stay late to work on their car when they are late for an appointment that was slated hours prior to their arrival, and have the gall to expect the work to be done before the "end of the day, even though they showed up AT the end of the day. Oh, and these are the ones that ALWAYS complain about how high the bill is....

HI THERE.

This is the What really grinds your gears? thread.

This is not the ignore a-not-hard-to-follow-previous-warning from mod staff, above, thread.

This is not the act sanctimonious and take pot shots at each other thread.

This is the thread where one more iota of that gets you a whole new thing to complain about - by yourself, on vacation from the forums.

Posts have been deleted.

Now cool it.

People who get their canines from breeders. Please don't! They're are so many shelter dogs who would absolutely love to be in a caring and loving home. Too many euthanasias have to be performed simply due to massive overcrowding.

Also... Do your local shelter a favor and spay/neuter your pet! You'll be saving lives. Isn't that a great thought?

I agree, i also would prefer to go to a shelter. Never much cared for the breeder culture, but that is just me.

OR, if you really really want a purebred for whatever reason... adopt from a local rescue. I know of someone who rescues Bengal cats when people find out that the precious little "mini-leopard" actually requires care and doesn't want them anymore (grr... that's the ranty part of this). There are a LOT of purebred rescues for older animals, or ones given up by people who moved somewhere they couldn't take them, or found out they had genetic predispositions that were hard to care for. So "always wanted a <specific breed>" is NO excuse at all.

And continuing the ranty part... if you are not prepared to fully take care of an animal, from the tiniest mouse to the largest mastiff, DO NOT GET ONE. When you get an animal, you are taking a creature into your life that is trusting YOU to provide its care. You are making a promise to accept responsibility for a LIFE. It is not "just an animal"... if you think that, DO NOT GET ONE.

Default Over-talkers

People that try to over-talk you. Meaning, you start to talk and they then start talking immediately over top of you.

Just had a kid in to get his eyes looked at. Every time I started to explain to his mother(women are by far the worst at doing this), she'd ask a question, interrupting me. This went on numerous times and I just quit talking.
At the end she goes: "I'm going somewhere else next time because you aren't telling me anything".

Uh.....................thanks?

Devices that doesn't work for you but "obviously it works for the employer" I get that bit all the time. So I bring it home thinking the person knows what he/she says and then just turn around to bring it back. I found you don't have to have much experience you just need to know how to sale it.
I go to the computer store here who actually knows what they are talking about. And when I talk to them of the specs I want, they don't look down at me "I am a woman I guess I am suppose to be stupid when it comes to gadgets like these"
sorry if offends. But tried not to.
I can sympathize. I used to get that all the time when I had my Spitfire.
I rebuilt the damn engine, I should know what kind of oil filter I want.

I am never living at my current apartment complex again. The internet is absolutely terrible.

I can somewhat relate. I drive a 1966 Buick. 1966 was also the last year that my engine was produced. Buick changed to a completely different engine in 1967. Parts are not compatible from one to the other. Totally different in every possible way.

When I go to an auto parts store to get something, they insist that I have a completely different engine and will even go so far as to either argue it with me, or attempt to force the wrong parts upon me because they think they know what's under my hood. I even persuade them to come outside and see the engine for themself, and then they argue with me that someone swapped the engine in my car. WTF.

All they know is what the store computer tells them, and because of that, they think they know everything there is to know about car repair.

This has happened more than once, and has happened enough times that I stopped going to auto parts stores unless I am desperate. I just order anything I need online.

People that ask why I'm putting diesel fuel in my diesel VW and I tell them it's a diesel. Then they say.
"It will run on diesel, too?"

Aye yi yi.

It blows me away that people are oblivious to the fact we are rapidly depleting our natural resources. How pissed will everyone be when they have to drink recycled urine?
