Well, I'm madder than than a drunk at an AA meetin'! Ahhhh, nah, that might be a tad embarressin but, heck, if I was drunk, I wouldn't know it! No really, this BS/nonBS crap is all BS! And I ain't talkin' Boy Scouts either!

Makes me madder than my couzin Rufus was when I told him that most of the NASCAR drivers are gay! Yep! Boy, was ol' Rufe was hotter than a three dollar pistol. Wouldn't talk with me fir three months!

And how about all these SUV'ers who think that because their wimpy butts are behind the wheel of a gas guzzelin' sled of an automobile, that they are now the meanest and badest people on the planet?

And how come you don't get milk anymore with the cream on top? Yeah, that really gripes me...

Well, ol' bobert could just go on and on but....

...this is a "Rant Here" thread fir any Catter who has found the Catbox over flowin' or has anything else on their mind.

So, an open invite or *challenge* to all you folks who got a rant 'er two in ya'!

Have at it...

Bobert

And thats another thing. Like how come Spaw gets away with saying that he invented the fart! Hey, that danged things been 'round for millions of years, yet Spawzer comnes along and marchs into the patent office and get a danged patent on the smelly things! And now he's collectin' royalties on 'em! Now that ain't right!

Hech with "Cheers", Hester, this is yer opportunity to open up the four barrel, to shoot for the moon, to shed those demons and to step forward and say, "Hey, I'm not takin' this crap anymore. I hate people who throw their chewed gum where others walk!!!"

This thread is for rantin!

Not for folks to stop by and say, "Tsck, tsck. Ranting is for common folks."

Man, now that really gets me! Ya throw a party fir a bunch of folks sufferin' from a severe case of poly morphis perverse guilt and they sit around talking about the danged weather! Now that one really get me!!!

Danged....... Grrrrrrrrr........

Hey, if you all can't think of nuthin' in world that bugs you then you can just rant on ol' bobert, if that's what it takes to get the pump primed...

And I'm still not too happy about having Spawzer with the "flagilation market" cornered.

SOme things make me so mad I could just suck the lips off a carp. And one of them is people picking on people. Like that gantlet ole Hester went through -- talk about Twistems, man, there weren't two straight thoughts could be rubbed together from the time she first posted her question to the time she tore up her sheepskin in disgust!! And now she won't even rant about it!!

And another thing is all these people that aren't checking in -- ya know what I mean?? Matt_R_who used to be Mbo, goes off and gets a life, no word from him for over two years!! And then he shows up and says "why are you-all sti9ll talking about the same old crap?". Now that takes nerve. Ole LEJ is out in the world o' busyness just scraping his nickels to gether to pay the rent, and there's a mess of other guys that used to say really intelligent htings around here got driven off by the numbskulls, trolls, badgers and fart-flamers. I swan, a waste of beautiful conversation pit, you ask me.

Now another thing makes me mad enough to just stick a golf-tee in my ear -- that's these guys who think it is terribly clever to pretend to have a snide, condescending and Universal point of view and then don't even put a name on it!! The gaseosity of it just gets up my nose sometimes, I am here to tell you.

Now slimy things in recipe books is another item I woudl like to vent on. And then there's C-average political entities with the brains of a box of wet rocks. And... and..


...hmmmm....   

Gee, thanks, Bobert. I feel much better.

How are you doing?

Oh thanks, Bobert, I really need a place to vent about my Marine Brat boss who is just doing her best to make my life a living hell.

She fails to grasp that I was a Union activist with the City of Chicago in the 80's --- those of you who know Chicago get my drift. There ain't nuthin about street politics I don't know; smarter people than my current drill sargeant boss have tried to make me look bad and failed. I know this game. I DID leave that job once the Union was in because I don't LIKE this game, but I am a master.

Oh, and my UU congregation seems to be in the process of committing hara-kari. 20 people are out for the minister because he is honest about the fact that he is bisexual, although in a committed heterosexual marriage. They come up with all kinds of reasons he is a Bad Person but it is still rank homophobia and they're being jerks and tearing apart my refuge from the storms of life. I could just spit.

Andd people who don't like cats ...

And good dancers who won't waltz when I ask them

And the occasional snake-about-women who won't take no for an answer, your reputation precedes you now go away,

diabetes regimen is high on my I-don't-like-you list

knees that quit long before you are ready to give up folk dancing

aphids on my roses

cats that run away to die alone and break your heart

A/C condensers that go out and stick you with a $530 repair bill']
[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[p;[

cats that walk on your kkeyboard, thinking whatever you are doing could not POSSIBLY take precedence over petting ME ...

'scuse me; I'm gonna go sit down and pet that cat ...

Man, how about the folks in front of you at the grocery store who discover at the last moment, after the clerk has loaded a hundred dollars worth of food into bags which are now in the cart, ahhh, that these folks gotta actually pay for the stuff! Like, what a novel concept! Ya gotta pay for the stuff! Hmmmmm? Now we have anoyther 5 minutes of fumbling thru the pocket book trying to figure out how to accomplish this major feat? Hmmmmmmm?

Don't get me on a rant, I spent over 3 hours ranting last night from everything from comparative religions to how long I'd been with a particular person and how my opinion of them has changed because of some things they did to me a while ago and how they keep on doing it still! Then we started on marriage!

I have aphids on my roses too..... gonna go and squish 'em later today.

I also have 3 cats who demand attention. A previous cat was so demanding he managed to jump on the keyboard, corrupt the C drive programming and save the corruptions. We had to strip down and start from ground level again! Gonna spend some time today petting and loving all three, then nuke the buggers with anti flea juice.


Then there is the (happily now ex) manager who is still insisting that he is above all health and safety requirements - he's fixed his desk so that it has created no fewer than 10 hazards, and that's before he sits down! I point it out and I'm picking on him, I don't point it out and he's at risk... as a risk assessor and H&S rep, I can't do that! ARRGGHHH!

However, it is a glorious day outside, after a rainy one yesterday, there's a blackbird singing just outside the window, I've got the day off work and a full sized chocolate rugby ball to eat. There are good things in the world, you just have to be a pessimist - that way, you are prepared for the worst, but it's always a lovely surprise if things go right.

Security caps on some medication containers. My neighbor called me yesterday to open his medication as his Arthritic hands couldn't get the cap off!! he had been trying for 2 hours before I came home...where is the Logic!!
and I have to rant slightly about the people that post here nameless and then proceed to verbally abuse folk on the Forum. I know I know, rise above it,I am taking my lead from the more experienced members but Dang if it aint hard to keep your react fingers still when someone is just being cruel and malicious:>~

Ah said, I HATES SNAILS AND SLUGS!!!
Puts me into quite a brew,
They eats mah new little plants, they do.

Ah wants to put dynamite in they little pants.
Whenever Ah finds 'em in my plants.
'Sted, Ah squishes they little heads
And mashes 'em til they's a heap o' dead.

Ah had purty pansies and p'tunies, too
Lookin' so sweet in the early dew.
But WAIT! Than ain't dew, mah dear!
It's slimy slug and snail trails, all a-smear.

So Ah puts out cans and cans o' beer
And they speed SLOWLY to drown in 'ere.
Onliest problem, they sent out word
Now the alcoholic gastropods come in herds.

I have an SUV. My butt isn't wimpy, and I don't think I'm the meanest, baddest person on the planet. It fits my needs, and yes, I do go off-road with it, and carry stuff in it.

We used to be able to get milk with cream on top at a local produce specialty store - they got it from an Amish dairy in Illinois or Ohio. I don't know if they carry it any more. Something REALLY yummy, though, is the Brown Cow organic yogurt with cream on the top. It's not cheap, but neither are candy bars, and it makes a much more nutritious treat.

This week, my biggest gripe is people who think they are "leaders" just because their job title has the word "director" in it.

" I hate it when someone refers to a posting of mine and twists the meaning to fit their agenda .."

Ditto, kat. Although my latest experience of this probably had a lot to do with not going out of my way far enough to ensure my words expressed my intentions clearly. My few months of experience on the Cat have taught me many things - and that's one of them. So thank you all for the education!

I've come to understand that posting on a discussion forum is much like performing a piece of music in public. Difficult pieces of music require much practice and preparation before they are fit for a public hearing, if justice is to be done to the music at all, and the performer cares about their reputation as a musician.

It's the same with posts on the Cat - man can a lot of godawful wrong notes result if the message is inadequately prepared! Hurtsa my ears, to say the least!

Anyway, that's my not-quite-a-rant for today - sorry about the drift and thanks for listening!

MMario : "... something that bugs me is the posting of the cutesy - spam-oid "joke" lists - which I usually have received a half dozen times in e-mailalready into the forum."

I assume it is possible that you are referring the jokes I have submitted to the joke threads lately, although I received no PM from you on this matter. Certainly, I did not wish to offend. Certainly, I had no idea that you had already received six copies of each joke. Certainly, I figured you for a 'Cat with the capacity to refrain from reading threads which bug you. However, in the interest of being a good boy sprout, I shall not post any more jokes. I hope this brightens your day by removing one more crumb from your breakfast table.

GNU-- do you not understand that a rant is just that, a chance to blow off steam, not directed at anyone to DO anything about it? There is no need to change what you have been doing, unless a Midcat administrator messages you privately about it. Many of us enjoy the jokes, and not everyone is in the same email circle or sees the same jokes-- the new one posted today, I had never seen, and it made my day.

no - gnu - unless you were posting anonoumously; I wasn't referring to you. I don't know *who* I was referring too, actually, as the posts that have bugged me have been anonymous.

Just need to know one thing, Amos. Was it a "whole barrel" as opposed to half barrels (like those sold at garden centers for flower planters), or a "whole barrel" of something. If the latter, of what can they get a "whole barrel" ???

I've known people who fell in a whole barrel of ... well, nevermind.

I'm working so hard at the moment,I don't have a decent rant left in me......could someone have a quick rant on my behalf,please? Any subject will do although if you want to have a go about ridiculous work-loads, road works and the M25 or the general,all-round,ungrateful, stupid, griping, miserable 'public' who watch you go out of your way to help them and then whinge because you didn't achieve the impossible....that's fine by me.

Oh, I think I just inadvertantly ranted after all....

Hence my reference to Jethro Tull's line, from a song I can't quite recall at this very moment, "Crumbs on the breakfast table, and a million other little things to spoil my day....". Anyway, I just thought that, if indeed, t'were my joke submissions causing anyone consternation, I could be of help in brightening someone's day. My apologies MMario et al.

Oh, yeah?!!?? Well, *$^%^ it, I am just fed up to the teeth with people who come to the movie theater not to watch a movie, but...to talk, to noisily consume overpriced junk food, to get up every few minutes and jostle past me to go to the washroom or buy more overpriced junk food, to grope each other in a not too subtle fashion, and (did I mention this?) to TALK!!! They should all be sent somewhere where they can do these various things and leave the fecking theatre to those of us who are there to watch the fecking movie!!!! Or they should just be shot.

Then there are those fecking 24% of Americans who voted for Dubya. What should happen to those idiots I cannot even print here! Well, I could, but it might get me in trouble...

Then there are people who wear baseball caps backwards! AAAARGGHHH! NO fate would be too horrible for those morons!!!

Then there are the teenage girls who, like, have to say, like, "like" between every, like, four or five other, like, words they, like, say, because, like, they are insecure? They also, like, usually end their sentences with a, like, question mark in their voice? Cos they're , like, insecure? Like...know what I mean?

WAUHHGHGGGHHH!!! I can't stand it!

And then there are the people who don't adulate William Shatner, eh? Those fecking nimrods are totally beyond redemption!

That should do it for now. Great idea for a thread. :-)

LH:
    As a corollary to your outrage about backwards baseball caps, I get the same sensation as a fingernail on the chalkboard when I see folks wearing a hat (baseball or otherwise) in any orientation at the dinner table or in a restaurant. I don't care if it IS Mickey D's place, you don't wear a hat when you eat indoors!

My Daddy always said that a gentleman takes his hat off in the house. This was, apparently, a common practice in his generation. I am told that Tom Landry (late of the Dallas Cowboys) nearly required a Papal dispensation to alleviate his discomfort at wearing his favorite sideline chappeau inside Texas Stadium.

Ah, LH, your rant about "like" reminded me of one I can't believe I forgot. You folks across the pond have taken a ma09999999999j (cat again) major cultural icon off our hands, and welcome to her.

I am speaking of course of Madonna, who now adds the children's author string to her -- bow, saying she couldn't find any books about values, and like, they aren't about anything.

Well, who did she ask? A knowledgeable bookstore person? A young people's librarian? Does she read books she bought at Kmart or Walmart? And why did she wait until her kid was 2 to start reading to him, anyway? Why does such a great mother not know you start 6 months, at the latest?

Or might a c54allruslewsd (cat) I callously think it is a shameless self-promotion ploy for her book, which just happens to insult the talented writers and book people already in the world?

Everyone in my field is waiting with bated breth to see what the material girl, whose first venture into publishing was hard-core porn, thinks is a book about "Values."

Okay.........One of the problems in playing genial, or not so genial, buffoon around here is that when I make a serious post no one takes it seriously or just skips it figuring it is a joke or some of my other dumb shit. I'm not ranting here at anyone but myself....I made the bed and I'll lie in it.

And if you haven't read the rest of this post....fart, fart, Cletus, Cleigh, Neil Young Center for the Terminally Screwed, James Taylor Catatonic Blandness Rehab Clinic, etc.....There ya' go....Now you'll feel better.

Spaw

Rant;
I do not like lawnchairs at a concert. The ones that are right up to the stage. The ones that keep you from dancing up front. The ones that are placed right up to the stage and no-one is even sitting in them, but saving a place for later. The ones that are taking up space for two people and in the way when the late dancers decide to get off their asses and dance.
Sometimes I don't care for the people sitting in these chairs either. The ones that don't even tap a toe and look bored out of their brains but looking so smug that they have a lawnchair right up front. The ones that throw shit at you if your in their way, because they can't see in their nice little lawnchair, boring, lazy seats.
The thing I don't like most of all, is realizing that I am not getting any younger, and maybe would consider a lawnchair for myself one of these years! Oh Lordy, Lordy, please let me keep on dancing!
end rant.
Peace. Rustic
