ANOTHER RANT I NEED TO HAVE


This is the point I apologise before I start, as I'm feeling bloody minded and still needing to rant. Although until I get going won't know what the rant is about!!

First off though, is adult dribbling! Even my description makes me shiver. What is is with young men of around 18 and who are dressed as chavs usually, that neccesiates this constant spitting saliva on the ground. They don't have hacking coughs, they just dribble moisture out of their mouths. Aren't their mouths like everyone elses, in that I feel absolutely no need to spit on the street, ever. Do they have excess saliva that comes the minute they don the chav wardrobe? I don't know, but it really annoys me.

What is it people when asked about Bareck Obama suggest that just because his middle name is Hussein that it somehow makes him a member of some terrorist gang. Get an education, is what I want to scream at the TV when such people have been paraded out in front of the cameras.

Why do I get at least 3 million letters every week asking if I want a credit card from such and such. Do I want any more debt... I don't think so. But I at least have the sense not to think ooh yes, another card I can have. In these times of economic stress what the hell is going on that it's still acceptable to offer me endless credit. I don't want it. I don't want my kids to have it. No one needs any more sodding debt.

How come that yesterday Lloyds bank and Northern Rock stopped tracker mortgages... and today the interest rate is slashed to 3% which is no bloody help to anyone unless the banks follow suit. But guess what, the banks will be alright jack. Christmas bonus anyone?


Why is there such discrepancy in pay? I have worked for more years than I care to mention in the NHS, and admittedly I am now reasonably paid by NHS standards, but today where I work the receptionists, who earn £6.00 an hour, have been bollocked cause one of the GPs was ten minutes late and he's now expecting them to phone him up at 7am to get to work on time...... conceited prick! He earns £100,000 surely he could afford a damned alarm clock.

They the poor lambs are feeling stressed cause they now have to offer surgeries from 8am up until 6.30pm so that those inconsiderate people who work for a living can get to see a doctor and not loss a days pay.... what is the world coming to when we make GPs earn their living instead of just pouring money down their throats. Find me a GP who hasn't got their little darlings into a private school, cause I'd be bloody amazed.

And why oh why did we have to start seeing Christmas chocolates in Morrisons supermarket in September? Do they think we don't know when Christmas is? As in beating the Christmas rush.... In September, come on give us a break.

Anyone seen a cream egg yet???

That's cleared out the ranting for a bit,normal service will be resumed as soon as I start feeling a bit less bolshy.

Off to London for the weekend to stay with my big son. Don't all breathe a sigh of relief like that!!!

Back after we have been to see the Annie Lebovitz exhibition and James Bond in Leicester Square (in the cinema ....)

That helped, didn`t it? And you are so RIGHT! It seems to be the same everywhere. You forgot to mention those telephone calls with the automatoc voice at which you can`t even scream, or the radio programs which call themselves a "show" (don`t they know what "to show" means?)or those TV game concepts which consider us to be bloody idiots...no, don`t get me started, either, and I totally agree with the spitting horror -also from all the football players!
And yet, what does it help to get excited. You go and have fun!

Er, Quite!!! 'Ave a good weekend!!

jiggins said...

Haha.. Sometimes all you need is a verbal release of words.. onto a page where it can be read, is a nice way to get it the attention it needs to fuel your next rant! I love it. Thanks for sharing your frustrations.. I think we can all relate. The Christmas chocolates in September always makes me laugh, and get a bit annoyed. Trying to extend 'holidays' always gets a bit under mys skin. Another post entirely. See you around!

I hope you feel better after all that and I agree with all of it especially the gp's, I can't get to see mine for two weeks, so much for 48 hour appointments...I work in the NHS too so know where you are coming from.

Have a brill time in London you are ready for it..xx

justme said...

Don't worry, the creme eggs won't be out on the shelves till boxing day!

Lori ann said...

Mei Del said...

just curious of a friday morning

Lady in red said...

J.J said...

Oh yes! Great rant and all at well deserving targets. I heard Christams music in a shop last week - I left without making a purchase.

Have a brilliant weekend girl!

You just enjoy the weekend, FB. Do what you need to do. Hell, I'd give half a lifetime to visit London...always been one of my planned trips.

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

That helped, I could feel it did!
Are you really still being offered credit? At times like these? Are the bank's marketing departments brain dead and unaware of the credit crisis? That's just unbelievable - and now has me ranting too!
Hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Sorrow said...

Now that was a rant!
hope your feeling a bit better after all that?
enjoy the fling with the big boy, and do give us a review of BOND..james Bond...
~smile~

Good good good......

anya said...

That was a bloody good rant! Ha. I love the way you brits say "bloody". I'm not sure what level of expletive it is...just mild I would guess?...but it's such a good one. So quintessentially British. I've always wanted to use it, but I speak U.S. Southern and surely people would look at me askance. (although my heritage is half British. Would that give me credibility?)

I would LOVE to spend the weekend in London, or the week. I've been there just once back in the 80's. I'd like to go again now that I'm single. Ahhh, the freedom to roam. I would definitely hop on a train and visit the Bloomsbury estate this time.

The trailer to the Bond film looks great. I like this new Bond quite a lot. He's edgier. More of a bad boy.

Have a wonderful, wonderful time with your son.

Val said...

miss*R said...

Walker said...

So do you feel better now :)
I hate those letters for credit cards because they never give me one LOL

I don't know whats with the spitting, maybe its like when a dog marks its territory but they spit instead of pissing on firehydrants.
I'm still trying to find ways to staple their pants up so I don;t see they crappy underwear
