Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, May 19, 2009....

Any readers following me on a regular basis know if it's Wednesday, it's time to Rant and Rave about the past week. Without further adieu, here are my Rants and Raves from the past week:

Rave: Turns out no Swine Flu for moi! Bacon for everyone!

Rant: This is a pretty funny rant. Received rejection letter for a job I sent my resume in for 6 months ago. Funny part, was that they thanked me for interviewing with the company. No wonder I didn't get the job, must have been asleep during that interview as I NEVER INTERVIEWED WITH THEM.

Rave: Beautiful weather again! Yay for me....

Rant: It isn't a complete week for me without a stupid driver. Typically, I don't write about them, but a person driving a car with vanity plates of *Safeti* should know they a)don't own the road; b) when the speed limit reads 35, it doesn't mean drive 10 mph; and c) turn signals are helpful to other drivers. Obviously, she was borrowing the car.

Rant: I hate people that assume I hate kids just because I don't have them. I don't have them because I couldn't.

Rave & Rant: Qualified again for unemployment benefits, but it also means I'm still unemployed. I know things will turn around and I'll find the perfect job.

Rave: Local farmer's market is up and running which means great people watching. Oh yeah, the fresh veggies are also great....

Rave: A friend's letter is getting published in People this week. I haven't seen it, but kudos to her!

That's it for me. How was your week? Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them or if you're doing your own Rant & Rave Wednesday, put your link in the comments section so others can read.

Rave - had a long weekend and got the entire list of spring chores done! Yay for us

Rant - have seriously blistered feet from walking in flip flops I had not worn in 8 months. Damn shoes - I wear you for months straight and then you do this to me! The Hell???

I love R&R Wednesdays. Also, you are awesome and someone is so gong to hire you soon!

I like the rant and rave format:) That's ridiculous that the company couldn't even manage to send you the right form letter!

I think i've been doing more ranting than raving this week. Maybe if I can be good until next week, I'll give it a shot on Wednesday.

p.s. Really someone had a plat with *Safeti* and drove like an asshole??? Amazing!

DB said...

Rant - staff meetings that have no real point to them.

Rant - no one has hired the talented LMB yet

Rave - I am going to Crumbs tonight to get cupcakes for friend but some will find it to my house

Rant - could not get through to vote last night on American Idol.

okay I'm done :)

I hate when people ask me when the second kid is coming after I tell them that I'm really not able to have anymore thanks to having a good portion of my lady parts removed.

So this one really resonates with me.

You will find the perfect job. Especially now that you don't have swine flu! I hear employers like that... :-)

Little Ms Blogger said...

Maria - Really your 7th letter? Impressed.

The Sorority - Awesome about the chores - love when everything on list gets done. Flip flops & blisters NOOOOO...Love the FF - thanks for the good wishes about the job...I'll take all the good karma I can get :-)

Children of the Nineties - I couldn't their HR dept did that either, but it made me laugh.

Marathoner81 - I love your rants about the no-worker/co-worker AND yes the woman had Safeti as vanity plate.

DB - did staff mtgs ever have a meaning? What time should I be expecting you and the yummy cupcakes?

Lora - yes, people can be idgits as my sister would say.

LiLu - You think? I thought it would make me extra popular! :-)

Rant: ...I'm pretty convinced that the point of the garage sale is to get rid of MY stuff!

Rave: I got a job offer...

Rant: ...I have no interest or intention of moving to Miami.
