What a Pisser

At my place of employment we have a unisex bathroom. It's not like the one on Ally McBeal ... it's a one seater. The toilet has one of those motion sensor thingies that flushes automatically when you get up/move out of the way. The thing that pisses me off to high heaven is that when the men use it to pee, they leave the seat up. This stops the toilet from flushing automatically, and they don't manually flush it themselves. SO, what this results in is it's flushing when a woman puts the seat down. So, let me break it down ...

1) I don't need to be exposed to the various shades of yellow I experience daily (some of you guys seriously need more water!)

2) I don't need to actually see the droplets spewing forth from the toilet as your piss is flushed down ... I know this happens, hence the seat covers!

3) Don't say you're trying to conserve water with the "if it's yellow let it mellow" motto ... the sensor prevents this from actually working. This concept is only valid in your own home ... this is just sick and wrong guys!!!

Lack of a Work Ethic .. the American Way

Remember the good ol' days? You know, the time when you had to get up in the morning to kill a mammoth and bring it back to the cave? No? Me neither ... but I do, to this day, get up every damn day and drag my arse to work. It's not like I want to ... I have to.

It is very rampant at my work place for people to call in hung over, or skiing, or whatever. I can't, for the life of me, figure out why this is okay. It's not just the young 'uns either. One woman even planned to call in with a hang over the day after her birthday. With that much planning, it seems that she could have just taken the day off ... but no, call in she did. The powers that be knew why and no reprimand was given because we are allowed a certain number of "sick days" off.

What seems to be the pattern here is that in the U.S. a lot of people under the age of 30 seem to have no concept of a work ethic. They grew up in a very cushy environment where any form of discipline was considered to be abusive ... weren't made to endure much discomfort, and the educational system was a breeze, what with the "dumbing down" and all. I think one of the things that scares me is that they'll be running this country when I'm elderly ... help us all.

My Stance

Okay, so the blogger that I mentioned a few days ago who has cancer posted DEMANDING that all of her lurkers comment. So I did. I was honest about the fact that I thought she was pathetic, etc. She didn't acknowledge my comment, but a couple of her fan club did. One was pretty diplomatic, the other says I'm mentally ill and blah-de-blah-blah, etc. SO ... let me now make known my stance on things.

1) The Earth is overpopulated. Cancer is just one of the many ways that nature is trying to control human population.

2) People who insist on popping out babies, in spite of the fact that there are millions of unwanted children available for adoption, are selfish, narcissistic fools who really want nothing more than to keep their genes alive ... a desperate attempt at immortality.

3) Yes, I have lost people close to me due to horrible diseases. However, as an advocate of Natural Selection, I believe they were meant to pass on. I am ANTI-chemo and other toxins we pump into our bodies to kill natural invaders.

4) Antidepressants are for the weak who can't deal with reality.

I'm sure there are more beliefs I hold close to my heart that piss others off, but they are my beliefs. If you don't like 'em too bad. You still have to share the same planet with me, just as I have to share it with you and your stupid ideas.

He'll be Missed

I just want to say that the death of Heath Ledger is sad to me because I loved his movies. I don't know what kind of a person he was in real life. He may have sucked and deserved to die ... regardless, some of his movies were brilliant and I will miss the fact that he will no longer be around. Of course, if he killed himself, then it's obvious he wanted to die and then I support his decision.

Stupid Racists ...

Okay, so to kick of the National Western Stock Show in Colorado, they apparently have a Banquet to honor this year's Muckety Muck Who's Who. At this year's banquet a key note speaker (some self important business man from Greeley ... no name here because he sucks) felt that it would be appropriate to make a racial joke about Obama.

He said, in reference to The White House, and I quote ... "they're going to have to change the name of that building if Obama's elected." What an idiot!! The joke was not met with the laughter he expected. Rather, it was met with gasps and silence. He then said, "C'mon, that was funny. Umm, no it's not.

If you are so inclined to read about this dumb ass, you can check it out here.

So, Go Ahead and Hate Me for This

There is a certain blogger out there who has cancer. I am not sayin' this is a good thing ... All she does on her blog is write about it. That's okay too ... an outlet ... HOWEVER ... she claims she doesn't want to be treated like "that girl with cancer", and yet all she does is write how horrible she feels and (ahem) keeps asking the Internet folks to come visit her, drive her around, CLEAN HER HOUSE ... okay, shouldn't her family and REAL WORLD friends be doing this? Oh, wait, they DO!! She writes about that too ... how wonderful they are and how helpful they are.

After she posted several paragraphs on her bowel movements, I tried to stop reading. It's like a train wreck, I can't pull my eyes away ....

My unsolicited advice is this:
If you don't want to be treated as "that girl with cancer" then don't act like "that girl with cancer."
