Where Are Your Manners? Rant

Posted on

What ever happened to manners? When someone holds a door open and waits for you to be able to enter, say Thank You. When someone says Thank you, say You’re Welcome! When you go out to eat, someone is SERVING YOU your food, they deserve a tip, and it’s 20% – not anything less unless the service is bad. And yeah, the delivery people count too, they use their personal vehicles to bring you food, deal with the elements to get it to you and then they have to deal with you, tip them! Here’s a big one for me, consideration of others. Where the hell did this concept go people? When you’re out shopping and you stop, move to the damn side of the aisle, the walkway – WHATEVER IT IS, GET OUT OF THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC. That works for fender benders too, if you’re vehicle will drive, PULL IT OVER, out of the way! When you’re walking down the street – don’t walk down the middle and make vehicles wait for you, THAT’S RUDE.

Additionally, I’m calling on all parents and adults in general to become a community again, it takes a village to raise children, and if you’re not policing your own kids, someone else is well within their rights to tell your kid to stop doing something they shouldn’t be doing. If you don’t like it parents, DO A BETTER JOB WATCHING YOUR BRATS.

What ever happened to people working as much as they have to, to get what and where they want in life? Why is it that I see more and more people starting GoFundMe events for things that they should do for themselves? Charity should be for those that cannot do for themselves or are victims of tragedy. I’m NOT going to help you pay for school, if you can’t afford it, like I couldn’t, there are student loans. I’m NOT going to help you pay for a surgery, that falls to you, apply for charity with the hospital, THAT EXISTS, check it out. The long and short of it is this, you can educate yourself on your dime, if you didn’t take care of your body, I’m not helping you make it right. Handle your business like I handle mine.



Better Left Alone

Holy shit it’s almost Xmas! Gah.

Anyway…you know the old expression, “digging up bones”? Well, what do you do when it’s people in your past digging up bones and it’s you that they dig up? This has happened twice in the last few weeks, two different people from my past coming back into my life.

Let me be brutally honest, I’m thoroughly enjoying it. I am more audacious than I have ever been in my life and I’ve recently, as you know, stopped caring about being pleasing. So all the things I wouldn’t say to them back when, I’ve got nothing to lose now, so I’m saying whatever the fuck I feel like saying to them. NO. HOLDS. BARRED.

You cannot know how good it feels. There is no better reinforcement to that idea than the reception that you get from it being overwhelmingly positive. As it would turn out, when I’m all the way me, no limits, no barring anything from passing my lips – I’m even MORE entertaining. Not on purpose mind you, but I’m funny and these two people that were digging up bones are finding that I’ve changed.

One of them, who thinks he has a leg to stand on when he says this, has told me now twice recently, “It’s been some time sure, but I still know you.” To which I just laugh and laugh. I look a lot the same, with some added decoration on my arms and legs, and my smile is the same, but the girl behind the smile has changed by leaps and bounds. My resolve is strong, my dreams are big, and my patience is low. What I will take off of anyone has become so miniscule, it will take very little for me to lose my last remaining shred of a filter that keeps me from being outright mean.

But make no mistake. I’ll be as mean as I have to be if required to be. Til next time beauties!!


My December

This is what my brain looks like right now. I know there are thought processes behind the fog but I can’t see them to reach out to them. I’ve been burning the midnight oil for days y’all. I was sick for a week already by last Thursday and the last few days I’ve had a gnarly sore throat complete with ear pain. EAR PAIN?? But I persist, and keep burning that oil all up in the night, I know it’s a commodity, I’m acting like I’m wealthy with it.

Last night, against my better judgment (which now is more like a whimper that says, “Whatever, you’re going to do whatever you want anyways, just whatever”) I burned up more of that oil. It gets interesting when I tell you that I’ve been taking dayquil and nyquil for my sore throat. In trying to get ahead of the symptoms this morning, I took a dose when I woke briefly at five and went back to sleep. Trying to be clever and nipping that sore throat before it can make me cranky.

I woke up at 7 (later than I should’ve) and moved a pillow to peep the clock – quickly getting irritated and jumping– okay, sitting up in bed. I look over at my nightstand and it occurs to me that what I took at 5 was Nyquil, as the dayquil was in my purse, and I know I didn’t reach in there at 5. Waiting for it to wear off, having to walk around every ten or so minutes makes for an interesting Thursday morning…I mean, yeah. Maybe later I’ll tell you about my Wednesday of Memories.

I’m off in search of toothpicks for my eyes. But seriously, how fucking long does Nyquil last?! ….so tired.
