If you just want to rant unchallenged, be my guest. No need to worry about logic. Everybody needs a good vent now and again. So go ahead, tell it like you see it. Even if it makes no sense. Who cares? In the privacy of a discussion thread let it all out and walk away a happier person, free from that annoying annoyance that once bogged you down.

I'll start. I hate getting up early to go to work. I hate it especially when it's still dark outside. It's so annoying that I can't sleep in on work days. Because, of course, I usually wake up early on my days off. That's so messed up!

I should just quit. But I do like those little necessities of life, like books, chocolate and fine jewelry. Well, I can always get the chocolates and fine jewelry from my many admirers but perish the thought that I would let them pick out my reading material!

OK, who's next. You don't even have to take a number and wait. Only one rule: Since logic need not apply don't try to argue with anyone. Rants stand alone.

My mother-in-law has two neurons in her head - and they don't interact more than once a week. Honestly, I've meet tree moss that has better critical thinking ability. And my 14 year old dachshund tells more interesting stories.

Not nice, I know. She's a lovely woman, just not my style. Bless her heart.

I loathe the very quantum fabric of the universe, and for each and every particle that sprang forth from it I have nothing but bitterness and eternal contempt.

Except for vodka. And gin. I will grant those substances a partial reprieve from my everlasting hatred.

Somebody pour me something to drink.

Whenever I see a 'question' worded as "how to <x>" a small part of me dies inside. A larger part of me looks with sadness and fury upon the dying part and is filled with the nigh-irresistible urge to take up arms and go on a roaring rampage of revenge. That small dead part of me was only 4 days away from retirement, after all.

How hard is it to form an ACTUAL question? "How can I copy pictures from my PC to my Fire?". "How would one create a collection on a Kindle Touch?". "Is there a way to charge a Kindle whilst reading?". But instead it's a never ending stream of "how to connect my wifi" thread titles, all written as if the author's greatest achievement in the written word was they once used a vowel.

"...roaring rampage of revenge..."

Band name.

I hate that I work hard every day and that lazy mother-lovin' cat of mine, Morgan, doesn't do any vacuuming, dishes or cleaning at all! Get off your butt, you free-loading feline!!!

(I also suspect that he's been reading my kindle while I'm at work...why else would I get a message asking me if I want to go to a page I haven't read yet!....HE SHOULD BE BUYING ME THE E-BOOKS!!!!).

Ah-hum....sorry...I'm finished.

I've been around. Was finding it hard to find time for things until recently. Had a rough couple of weeks with stuff...but back now!

Hope you have been well! Just be careful if you see a post by me complaining about the price of cat food....(*whispering* I think Morgan also has been chatting on the discussion boards!)....LOL

I was thinking the same thing. LOL!

But the hard core ranters will never post here if they can't generate a fight. That's usually the only reason they posted in the first place!

I have a rant. My parents bought me Brother XL2600I Sew Advance Sew Affordable 25-Stitch Free-Arm Sewing Machine on Sunday. I slept through yesterday, when UPS tried to deliver it. So, now they are going to deliver it today. It's after 12 noon, I want my sewing machine NOW! Why can't UPS deliver my package when I want it? Is it too much to ask that they drop everything & forget about everybody else's packages, just for a bit, so they can deliver to me? Really, I'm not asking for too much am I?

Edited to show off what my new sewing machine looks like. Isn't she pretty?!

Commas! Commas, writers, USE THEM! Just finished a book where the writer---oh, wait, "author", not writer, a writer would be at least familiar with the concept of a COMMA---hardly ever used a comma to separate the person who was being addressed from the rest of the sentence. "Let's eat Grandpa!" is NOT the same as "Let's eat, Grandpa!" This has been a message from the Punctuation Advocacy Board. Punctuation. It's free. Use it.

I will clear my appointment book of all but your name. What did you have in mind?

I am REALLY, tired, of political surveys, while I haven't actually answered, any, I am tired of hearing the phone ring, and seeing, Natl Survey, on the caller ID. I am tempted to, answer one, and suggest, that they take a survey to see if anyone, actually likes answering, surveys!!

While I realize, we aren't supposed, to answer other 'ranters' ... as I am ever helpful, I tried to toss in some extra commas for the poster who was feeling comma deprived. : )
