Sometimes frustrations build up, and I have found it is best to release them in a safe avenue, like running or journaling or even blogging. Because you can choose not to read this post, it’s not so unavoidable as some things (posted on your social media feed). Well today I have some “rants” to share, and I hope you can relate, even a little.
Social Media –
1. Facebook is not a public diary. I’m sorry you had a bad day, but save the drama for yo’ momma.
2. You shouldn’t post vague complaints that are obviously about someone specific. Grow up, confront that person individually. What you’re doing is like lazy gossip.
3. Selfies in the mirror are still considered vain. We all know you’re adorable, thank you for sharing. And I don’t know what we would have done without seeing your cute outfit.
4. Acronyms add nothing to your posts, except make most people wonder what on earth you’re talking about. My favorite is “PTL.” Praise the Lord. Really? You need a short hand to praise God? Let’s just throw Him in there with “MCM” and “WCW.”
5. Just because it’s a “fitness” page does not mean it is acceptable to post pictures of yourself in your underwear or with hardly a shirt on. Some people call that porn.
1. Texting while driving is ridiculous. You are not that important, because if you were you would have a driver, like the president. And if you’re anything like me, you’re probably not that great at multitasking anyway, especially not with a 4,000 pound piece of equipment and when people’s lives are at stake.
2. Road construction and traffic annoy everyone, not just you. Don’t take it out on the people next to you by cutting them off.
3. If you don’t know where you are going, pull over and get out of the way while you figure it out. I know the GPS on our phones is so very confusing, but how about not making everyone around you angry?
4. Riding my tail when I’m already going over the speed limit will not make me go faster, I promise you. Either switch lanes, or just chill out.
5. Just because you put your blinker on does not mean it is safe for you to change lanes. And especially if you decided to skip the long line, knowing you need over, and want to cut in front of me. Probably not going to happen.
1. Failing to RSVP does not make you cool. Someone is trying to host an event, which probably entails much planning, and has honored you with an invitation. Respect them enough to respond.
2. I know that your understanding of politics is infallible, but let’s pretend for a second that you might actually have little real experience in the field. You are entitled to your own opinion, key word: opinion.
3. Football season is coming up, which means cooler weather and Sunday afternoon naps. But men, can we please not assume that women care a flip about your fantasy teams?
4. I really enjoyed listening to you talk about your life for the last twenty minutes. I’m doing fine too, thanks for asking.
5. In the elevator, one should not make foul smells, stare, or come directly in from smoking a pack of cigarettes. Also men, you should let the women in and out first.
