Random hostilities

by @ Tuesday, April 29th, 2008. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

Over the last couple of days, I have been noticing things that have been annoying me.  I figured it was time for me to get them out into the open.

If you are sitting next to me on the bus ride to/from work, do not try to convert me to your religion.  I have already survived [...]

Where has the common sense gone?

by @ Tuesday, April 15th, 2008. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

The two most important rules of firearm safety are:
Rule #1:  A gun is always considered to be loaded.  The only time a gun is considered unloaded is when it has been completely disassembled.
Rule #2:  Never point a gun at anything you do not intend to shoot.
When I was just a wee little lad, both my [...]

Pardon me…

…for not genuflecting at the Altar of Obama.
I have been watching the Democratic primary with equal measures of amusement and disgust.
Just this past week, Hillary Clinton dug up an old relic from the past that, frankly, should have remained in the past:  Geraldine Ferraro. The 1984 Vice Presidential candidate marched to the tune that Hillary called, [...]

“He is not smart enough”

by @ Saturday, December 22nd, 2007. Filed under Me, Myself, and I, Pissed Off Rants

Have you ever engaged in a bit of harmless self-deception in order to try and make yourself feel better about something?  I have, and to tell the truth, I just plain suck at it.  Self-deception is a skill that I could never quite master.  I still try to do it sometimes, though I have no [...]

Workplace woes

by @ Thursday, December 20th, 2007. Filed under Me, Myself, and I, Pissed Off Rants

I do not normally like to blog about my workplace for a variety of reasons.  Chief among those reasons is that this blog is primarily about my personal life and my personal beliefs.  For the most part, I like to keep my personal life and my professional life separate, therefore my antics at work seldom [...]

Customer service woes

by @ Friday, October 19th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

I work in a heavily customer service oriented business.  One of the truisms in the industry in which I work is that customers will take their money elsewhere if they feel their needs are not being met.  This holds true for many businesses; companies that treat their customer with respect and address the customer’s issues [...]

Writing Faux Pas

by @ Wednesday, October 17th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

I have tried a number of different cures in my never-ending battle with writer’s block.  Friends have advised me to do a number of things, from writing about my feelings, to free writing, to brainstorms, and so on.  I have even used writer’s tags to spur the writing process.  One of these tags was to [...]

Seven years on

by @ Saturday, October 13th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants, Politics

On October 12, 2000, the USS Cole was bombed by Islamic terrorists in what was only one of a long stream of terrorist attacks that have been carried out against American military personnel.  When the War on Terror began, I remember thinking that it was about damned time someone stood up to these murderous 7th [...]

The rammifications of American ignorance

by @ Thursday, October 4th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants, Politics

One of the reasons that it is very difficult to take American “culture” seriously is our never-ending fascination with people or events of minimal importance.  The average American idiot is more concerned with which celebrities are getting married, getting divorced, having an affair, or making asinine and outrageous statements.  Just as examples, in the last [...]

Frustrations

by @ Thursday, July 5th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants, Politics

As I’m sure some of you have noticed, posting on this blog has flagged a little bit.  Okay, it is pretty much dropped down to nothing.  This was not an intentional slight to my loyal readers (all four of you), but rather a self-imposed break.  It is also the lack of any subject worthy of [...]
