Yea I'm A Bad Person

..but am I conceivably worse than say a Simon or TOBP-Steve?

Here's the scenario:

I play a couple apps on Facebook. Tonight I was feeling generous and decided to have a competition to give away some items. The competition was to post the correct number between 200 and 400. Everyone was there posting along when this one lady comes and posts ALL the numbers from 200-400, as well as items for specific post numbers.

She now complains that she's won since she posted all the numbers. I explain to her that what she did cannot be done and she started complaining about me changing the rules mid-comp and blah blah upset upset. I, perplexed, ask her if she's having problems at home because there was no reason to behave like this. She disappears. Actual quote from her son [btw she one one of the post spots]:

My mom doesn't want your coins and she figured she wasn't going to get them since you post "oddly enough, no.. and after post 106 I'm going to close it... y'all are lahame."

As for what is happening at home, that is none of your business. You made my mom cry. I hope you are happy.

My Response:

Yeah, I noticed that I typed 106 instead of 196, but it was too late to edit it.

Tell your mom I'm sorry that she misinterpreted the rules, but I did not appreciate her behaviour, and I wasn't even upset, I was being rational.

As for being happy or unhappy, I honestly don't care. Don't take out your home issues on me.


Too cold?

Long Time No See

Sorry folks, and yes its going to be a rant.

There's this guy that works as a bearer so he comes to our office daily. He's always making inappropriate comments, and had now started saying that I was going to get pregnant. I've always ignored him.

Today he came in and told one of our former netballers that she could not fly anymore because she's gotten too fat. I was like wtf? Anyways, he comes around to my section.

"You're going to be pregnant by December or you're not going to live to see January".

I was like wtf? Firstly, I have expressed to him the fact that I DESPISE children and have no wish to ever have any when he's said it before, but now he's wishing down ill on me? I was NOT amused. We're not friends, not even mild acquaintances. We don't even work on the same building.

I just wanted to go over there and beat the shit out of him. I have a sense of humour as much as the next person, even more, but that just wasn't funny.

I told my male friend and he said to tell him "Get you nose out of my bumboclaat business and go fuck a cactus". I was in tears. I heart my friends.

How are y'all?

Fight or Flight?

Apparently, I'm a fighter.

Someone reversed into my car last week. Long story short, just to look a female, he wasn't paying attention and reversed into me even though I was blowing my horn ad nauseum. The impact was enough to partially raise my car, and raised the back of his low, untinted 1989 Ford Courier whose window was down.

The guy continued on to pick up the woman, then started driving off like he did not just hit my car. I was indignant. I drove him down and right beside him started shouting "You hit my car!!!". He looked... bemused is the best word, and continued driving on. I saw red. I took my car and swung in front of him [recounting the story to daddy later, I was thoroughly cursed out about how a car can be fixed but my life couldn't].

This was 8pm in what could be titled as one of the worst areas in the country, but I just stood there and got all his information while he kept prattling on, saying he didn't feel the hit. My coworkers [all men], said that based on the damage he couldn't NOT feel it. Blah blah blah he didn't want to pay the price my mechanic was charging vs. his [a US$30+ difference] and I just agreed on the amount he was giving me just as long asd I didn't have to hear his annoying voice ever again.

Yeah, I'm a fighter. I didn't just swoon and get scared because I got hit, if I had a machete I would've come out swinging because I was so upset that my car got hit sake of a man looking to dip his noodle into a honey pot he was never going to get. A couple of my male friends were going to "extract" the rest of the money from him, but I told them that it was pointless for such a paltry amount. Still love them though.

Tonight, I realized it was getting worse. We were playing dominoes at work and I got saddled with an extremely lame player. He made a very stupid move that cost us the game and I just got up and backhanded him. I need help... well so do my coworkers that laughed him to scorn.

Wrath of God, or Act of Man?

Mood: Happy the electricity is back
Music: Harry Potter 3 on ABC Family
Author: maryjane

So the local power company workers are on strike...sorry I mean "restive".
The power company's grid is set up to work without actual man power...for awhile. So the citizens were warned that if the strike was not resolved soon, there would be power cuts this weekend.

Yesterday morning, my friend woke up. He lives in an area called Red Hills, he had no electricity or water. So there he was, staring at the walls, no BB, no net, no light, no water, no cable...and a neighbour was doing construction next door so lots of noise.
He was miserable. Eventually the electricity came back, but sadly it did not bring the water back with it and he came to my house in the evening to shower, then we went to dinner and for ice cream (yum!).

Just now, some Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door. Sigh.
I had just finished preparing dinner and was hungrily eating my chicken and veggies. At first I thought it was one of my neighbours knocking, as I heard the voice of a young lady and she was rattling off some words. I opened the window, nope, Witnesses. Before the older lady could complete her sentence I said, "I'm eating dinner."
Her: "yes we can smell it."
Me: "I'm not interested in solicitors, so just give me whatever material you have."

That was it. I took the "Awake" and shut the window and resumed my meal.
Guess what? The light went off the minute I shut the window.

So...who made the electricity go off?
The "restive" JPS Co. workers? Or the snubbed Jehovah's Witnesses?

I'm soliciting answers, and "No Solicitors" signs.

Apparently I need Jesus

Mood: Exhausted
Music: "Tell me on a Sunday" by Sarah Brightman
Author: maryjane

Yesterday morning at 10:10 a.m. Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door to share the word of Yahweh with me. I was clearly asleep, as evidenced by me wearing my nightie and my hair standing up on one side of my head. Seeing as I had gone to bed very late the night before, I was not amused. I took the "Awake", closed the window and headed back to my bedroom - they hovered by my door for another 5 minutes before leaving.

I should have stood there speaking to them, and killed them with my morning breath.
Dammit, why didn't I think of that yesterday?
Shouldn't you guys be in church at 10:10 a.m. on a Sunday? Instead of witnessing to women with insomnia who aren't fully awake?

So...I think I'm going to take you guys up on your suggestion of getting a "NO SOLICITORS" sign. Anyone want to get a cute one for my door, and mail it to me?, e-mail me for my mailing address.

Simon, were you on 'Who Wants to be a Millionare'?

I was watching a repeat on Game Show Network tonight and the first ever winner of 1 million dollars [or as the government and I like to call it $600 000]. The guy looked just like your profile pic.

Yeah, I know that's not really you, but the fact that there's someone now that looks just like that gave me the giggles.

So here's a question folks - what are your thoughts on the "other woman". Definition - a woman that knows a man is married and still... y'know ;) .

We were having an "other woman" discussion last night [after my full stomach of shrimp alfredo...yumm!] and I said that from the perspective of the child who has seen this woman potentially break up his parents' mariage... she's the whore that broke up mom and dad and to me, every "other woman" was an added straw to the back of the marriage... but then again, I think cheating is wrong. Not saying I have never done it or won't do it, but it's still wrong.

Your thoughts?
