I Don't Always Have The Nicest Things To Say About My Roommate Either!

I swear I might live with one of the most annoying people on the planet. She has no consideration for others what so ever, she turns everything into a huge dramatic scene if she starts to think that maybe just maybe she isn’t wallowing enough in her own self pity. If it isn’t already obvious I am not her biggest fan, I really hope that these blogs don’t turn into a series of rants directed at whomever happened to piss in my cheerio’s prior to me sitting down to write, although I must admit the last three have been primarily that. Sigh. What is a man nearing 30 to do? Holy Crap am I the only person frightened by the prospect that I am almost thirty. On the upside in a little over 7 years I’ll be eligible to run for president. If that isn’t a scary thought than I don’t know what is. So anyway getting back on track to the Wailing Banshee as I have decided to name her, Let me fill you in on the reason she is here. She is RFG’s Sister in law and she was having some trouble back in Ohio. I don’t really know the whole story but her babies daddy wasn’t helping her and she didn’t have the motivation to help herself. So sometime back in late February she and her two children moved into our house, Since she has been here one of our other roommates have moved out. (There were many reasons but I think primarily as she lived closest to the brood they were making her crazy.) I want you to understand these two children at first glance are possibly the cutest you could ever meet. As long as at first glance they are sleeping, they are two and three years old a boy and girl respectively. The little boy has a few medical issues and is definitely the most tolerable of his family, but then how can anyone not love a tiny little two year old? The little girl stops being cute the minute she opens her mouth, she has learned from her mother that all she needs to do to get what ever she wants is to Yell, scream, cry and whine. And I’m pretty sure that In the four months that she has been here that is all I have seen her do aside from eating and sleeping. These three have managed to alienate the rest of the household to where no one wants anything to do with them including but not limited to Wailing Banshee’s own sister who’s only crime in this whole experience was trying to once again save her little sister from the mistakes she continuously made. WB is one of those types of people that I have written about previously, the type of person that thrives off being the victim and being taken care of no matter how bad she might make someone else look. A classic example of this would be about a month ago when for the fourth time she asked me to watch her kids on my weekend off so she and her beau of the week could go out drinkning and dancing, and I told her I would do it this last time but that was it. She told her sister that I flipped out on her and went all ape shit. So when her sister found this out she was obviously very upset (as some of you know she also has a child whom I watch frequently.) She assumed I meant all of the children and was ready to pack up all my crap and have it waiting for me outside when I got home from work. All this because one woman can’t be responsible enough to watch her own children. She is truly a constant thorn in my side. The reason that she has me so wound up today is really mostly to do with the complete lack of consideration for others that i mentioned earlier. As i mentioned previously i was promoted this past weekend, because of that promotion my days off this week were a little screwy. I ended up having a split weekend, Sunday and today (Thursday) i had planned on sleeping in a little but unfortunately for me she was blasting her stereo from the time she got up. The woman is loud in general but for some reason she feels the need to be surrounded by even more, much like pigpen and his ever present cloud of dirt. (That was a PEANUT"S reference for any of you keeping track.) The funny part of her being so loud and inconsiderate is that she almost missed a flower delivery guy, The music was up so loud she didn't hear him knock or that he had rung the door bell three times, the only reason i heard the bell at all was that i happened to be in the laundry when he arrived and thought i had heard it go off.
That is enough of that for one day, The new job is coming along nicely, it was a tad stressful at first i wanted so badly to prove that i could do the job correctly, that i think i was over stressing myself. I would like to take this moment to say that if you play with fire you will get burned. Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean that it wont. Saying things like "The person i respect most in my life is gump because he hasn't tried to take advantage of me." is pretty much tempting fate. News Flash he doesn't have to try you are doing it for him. I don't to ruffle feathers but that little bit just annoyed the piss out of me.

In other news I have the upcoming weekend off, it will be the first actual weekend i will have had off since store setup back in January. what ever shall i do with myself? if you have any ideas feel free to drop me a line or comment.

A Completely Random Quote,
So while i was looking around for random quotes today I found a website that specializes in the every mans quote, basically their belief is that celebrities aren't the only ones with something worth remembering to say.... a good example would be this....

Ever have one of those days when you realize you never wanted to be a responsible adult?

Happy Fathers Day & More Things I Want To Say.

Same shit different day,
I don’t know what I have to do to convince people that I am not worth talking about. I was in a relationship that didn’t work out, which makes me exactly the same as all these other hacks who have done nothing but converse and assume since I left my last blog. The only difference between my self and any other loser who has the misfortune to fall for the wrong woman is that A I tend to do it publicly and B I tend to do it frequently. Any one who has read any of my previous blogs has a clue that recently the only thing that inspires me to write is either something really good I.e. I meet a new girl or I get a job or what ever, or something that has me so aggravated that all I can do to contain and restrain myself is to vent. Sadly there has been less good recently than bad. I do have some good news I was promoted yesterday, I was a little afraid that I wasn’t going to get the position due to some of the drama that is currently surrounding myself and a few others. The pay increase isn’t huge but it is a step in the right direction and while my responsibilities have increased my level of control over my future has as well. I think it also makes my previous boss look good as well he has had 4 of his associate promoted in less than 6 months, obviously he is doing something right. I do want to say that I am considering deleting a few of my coworkers from my MYSPACE friend List do to the fact that at least one of you is the reason I am having so many problems. What ever I post is strictly for my venting purposes, if I have allowed you into my friend circle I at one time assumed I could trust you. The thing that really strikes me as funny is that while my last blog was very obviously directed at one particular person it was sort of heralded as the catch all for anger at a younger and obviously less mature generation. I had more than one person call me that had assumed I was talking directly to them, one of them even called me in tears telling me how much I had hurt her and how she couldn’t believe that I could be so cold. You know what, that really actually bothered me, I don’t ever purposely set out to upset someone, I even mentioned in the last blog that I knew I would get a lot of grief over the things I had said, but it was truly the only way for me to get it off my chest. I do want to say that the best way to not be a subject of my annoyance and a future focus of an annoyed rant is to refrain from doing anything that can be or even might be traced back to you, ( If some of you are as smart as you think you are you will take this as a warning) A really good example of this is if you are dating someone I know, do not text someone else that I know trying to flirt with her, just because it hasn’t came up yet doesn’t mean it wont. Girls talk a lot, and as much as I try to hide it I am very girly in many aspects. Another example, if you want information about me, ask me. Do not try and fish information out of others. News flash I know you are doing it because surprise, surprise people don’t enjoy being pumped for information. I do want to point out that as far as the second example is concerned I am talking to more than one person.
And now for the subject change, I do want to wish a happy fathers day to all of you who are fathers, I hope you have a good day and remember why we are so thankful as your children to have you in our lives. It has to be an amazing thing to be a father.

A Father’s Day Quote:

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.

I Don't Always Have The Nicest Things To Say

I am writing this primarily to get some things off my chest, first of all, if you are about to turn 19 you are an idiot. You don’t know what the hell you want, and you yes I am talking directly to you little blonde girl, If you are so angry with me and want nothing to do with me why the heck do you keep checking up on me, You know how that place is, the minute you say anything someone always goes running directly to the person you are talking about and tells them what you said, and they probably embellish because that is the nature of the beast that is the Wal~mart. NO I do not have a girlfriend and no I’m not seeing anyone. Yes there is someone that has been helping me get to and from work but no we are not more than friends. I have you to thank for that, you taught me that no one in that building is mature enough to handle a working relationship.... O'kay I have mentioned this before in previous rants... once again I am talking directly to you, If a guy is willing to cheat on his girlfriend to be with you HE WILL CHEAT ON YOU!!!!! Are you truly so disillusioned that you think you are better than her in someway, let me tell you if he wants anything more than another notch on his head board he would break up with her first. Please use that thing between your ears that seems to almost always be in a comatose state and open your eyes.
Secondly I have not done all of the things I have been accused of, but because once again it is easier for you to believe a rumor than to communicate with the source you will believe anything you hear, Nobody wants to look like scum, As an adult it is your responsibility to look at a person and try and figure out what they have to lose if their version of the story is even slightly slanted back at them. No woman in her right mind is going to admit to being kind of a tease, it might make her look bad and change your opinion of her to something less admirable. Thirdly, I am so over you! OH MY GOD! You could quite possibly be the most vain person on the planet, do you honestly think I could hold feelings for someone who was so willing to believe the worst in me with out even talking to me about it.... NEWS FLASH You dumped me not the other way around, There is no statue of limitations to how the hell I feel, Do I think you have the potential to be an amazing woman, Yes I really do, some day, right now you are just an angry little girl with only one person to focus all of your problems on. And on another note as far as the Mohawk idiot is concerned you are correct I started not liking him because of you, My annoyance and eventual hatred of him was completely his doing, even you are not stupid enough to believe that I act this way with out being antagonized. Once again of course he didn’t tell you that it would make him look bad, I am telling you this flat out, the guy is worthless I could say some further rude things but it isn’t necessary. I am truly sorry that we can’t end this relationship as friends but then I can’t say I’m surprised, I’m trying to behave like an adult. You know that writing is my way of venting, and I am pretty sure that I will get a lot of crap for posting this as a blog but the fact of the matter is if it is in writing no one can twist my words.... it’s here in black and white. I really do hope that your friend “Gump” does care for you and that he gives you whatever it is your looking for.
In other news, My uncle is getting married in a few weeks how cool is that? They are getting married on 07-07-07 at 7 pm I think that is so sweet I have always wanted to get married on a day like that. Hope you all enjoyed my rant it brought a smile to my face...
