Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, June 3, 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: A random act of kindness by my pizza guy has renewed my faith in mankind. For years I've been going to the same pizza place, I've never known the owner's name, but we always make small talk. Yesterday, when he found out I was unemployed, he pulled out the business card of his good friend and told me to check out the company because they were looking. I did. Unfortunately, not a programmer, but still it was nice of him to make that gesture.

Rant: Another *squish* exam (a.k.a. mammogram is needed) to magnify a particular area. My issue with mammograms is that I feel like a can of peas on the grocery shelf and someone is trying to pull the 'can' off the shelf. Hello people, don't you know the breast is attached!

Rave: Good results on the test I was worried about - Yay for me!

Rant: Trying to get through to insurance company to verify I don't to pre-certify an upcoming MRI. Been trying and trying and I'm beginning to believe that an audience with the Pope is probably easier to get.

Rant: CVS Pharmacy sucks or is inept. Either one, pick your choice. After telling my husband and I to come back 3 times, they posted my address on the script as Ohio. Nothing wrong with Ohio, but I'm from CT....

Rave: Some great weather recently and herb garden almost all in. I feel so *green & organic* growing my own stuff.

Okay, a lot more Rants than I expected this week. 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.

Don't even get me started on CVS. I just go to the same one every time, because I never want to go through any of their crap again.

Congrats on the test!

Rave = week is now officially more than half over.

Rave = happy about your test results.

Rave = my oatmeal cookie from Panera's.

Rant = boss is kind of a tool.

I'm feeling all green and organic this week as well! Well, that is until my cat dug up all my newly planted snapdragons. :(

Isn't it nice to know there are nice people out there?

Rant: Mcdonalds. How freaking hard is it to get an order right?

Rave: I'm a day closer to seeing my version 2.0 friend again!

Love this . . . Keep up the Rants and Raves!

Yea you for good test results!

I've found lately that people really want to help you when they find out you're unemployed. My husband's been out of work for six months and anytime someone hears about it, they tell me to call so and so or here's the website of a company that is hiring. So yeah, that's my rave!
