Warning, whining ahead. Here’s my rants list (they’ve been building up lately):
• Chargers! Why is it that every electronic has to have its own charger? We have a drawer full and I swear the one I dig out is never the one I need. On top of which, most of them look just alike so you don’t even know it’s not the right one until you plug it in and the readout message is “unauthorized charger.” Grrrrrrrrr. It’s all just a racket to sell more chargers – which is a needless use of money and resources. Hate it!
• Passwords! Every site wants them — and maybe they even need them – but they all have different rules for what makes up a password and how long they last. The only way you can possibly remember them all is to write them down and keep them close to the computer which really seems like craziness.
• Fake emails! I am a big hater on the really horrible people trying to scam all the good people out of bank info and/or hard earned cash. I can’t believe how good one of the Bank of America scam email’s was that got sent out recently. Fortunately, we don’t have an account any longer with them, but if we did, I might have thought the email really was from them. Trust no one online – even your own friends or family members. If it’s asking for information you don’t normally give out, it probably isn’t actually from that friend or family member. If in doubt, it’s best not to even open and never respond.
• Loud TV ads! Oh how I hate these. I want to set my TV at the volume I like and then I want the ads to also run at that volume. If it takes legislation to make advertisers and the networks to change that back to how it used to be and should be then so be it. It’s ridiculous that the legislators and lawmakers ever allowed it to get so out of control. Advertisers should not get to decide the volume levels (and I’m even in advertising!)
• Politicians! The election is still months away but the ads have begun. Yuck. I so dislike the hate ads and so much of running for office is about political game-playing anymore and not about the real issues that it’s hard to cast a vote and feel good about it in any way.
Okay I’m taking a deep breath now, standing up and shaking it off. There. aaaaaaahhhhhh. So much better. I needed to just get that all dumped out of my system – sorry it had to land on all of you. :O Let’s end the evening on a positive note shall we? I got this ending quip in an email this week and I loved it. It reminds me that I’ve got to work harder at thinking more positively about everyone — nice people and the not-so-nice (even politicians!) I mean we’re only as strong as the crookedest amongst us. : ) Hand in hand – we stand strong.
You be me
I be you
They be us
We be them
All is one
Love is all
We be bad : )
