Dear Rummy

Hmmm, I guess rum could help a bit...can't think of anything to help with the blocked ears...
Oooh, ginger should help with the post nasal drip! And eucalyptus for the blocked nose might help with the blocked ears as well! If you can stand it, try a warm bath with eucalyptus and tea tree oils in it, or drop a few drops on your pillow.

Dear Dispatcher,

How is it my fault that the guy asked me to deliver tomorrow thinking that today was Wednesday? He never said "Thursday" just "tomorrow". Be glad he corrected it before we shipped everything.

Sending me a video of a girl getting fucked up the ass by a machine saying "this is what the truckers are going to do to me" and "get your shit together"? What the fuck? I know you're frustrated I am too, but that was uncalled for. Especially considering all the shit you and I put up with on a daily basis.

Dear pain specialist,

What was the point of getting all stabby with the needles if the pain relief isn't going to last? To see if it will work? How about just doing it full out and not making me have to get all stabbed on again?

Well, at least it got me out of work tonight. :p


Dear husband,

You said you would stay and make sure they didn't cause unbearable pain, but you ran like a scared little girl when the needles came out.

Thanks a lot buddy! It's your birthday, so I can't hurt you till tomorrow.


Dear BossMan,

I did not make the Eagles lose so stop taking it out on me! I asked an innocent question and you lost it. Pilling more work on me was not the answer.

How about pilling more work on Whiner? She doesn't do a damn bit of work all night or did you want that work actually done and done right. It still ticked me off that you thought nothing of dumping it on me at the last minute.

Any complaints about how I did it will result in my showing my angry side and you know you don't want to see that again.

Dear RW and EQ,

Try Tetley's Britsh Blend. It's stronger, so you don't have to brew as long, so it isn't bitter.

Overbrewing is what causes bitter tea. Americans overbrew because our tea is weak. The Brits don't believe we like strong tea, so their classic brands that they send over here aren't the same strength.

Bigelow's tea, when consumed in the UK, is actually quite good.

(P.S. I don't mean the Brits on the board, I mean the Brits who decide what tea will be sold internationally.)

Dear Family,
You all rock!!! Except those two! you know who you are! But otherwise, you all kick butt. El, Ev, and little C-you guys are the brightest little smartasses any mother would be proud of. D, C and Do-you guys as siblings are the best on planet Earth and beyond!! Thanks Mom for not killing me as a teenager. you must have known that I will eventually have teenagers one day and Karma will pay me back and you will be laughing your butt off.

Dear Stupid Stepbrother,
WTH were you thinking, you inconsiderate, selfish pathetic excuse. You steal money not only from my mother but your own mother to buy gas because you're too lazy to get a job or simply ask for a few bucks. You did "things" with your gf on my mom's NEW couch. People have to sit there!!! My mother wouldn't even let us near a new couch with a glass of water. You're still a HS soph when you should be graduating this year. You destroy every car you get because you have no concept of responsibility. I guess that's not your fault. Your grandparents reward you because your parents broke up!! Boo flipping hoo! my parents split up but no one is handing me the keys to a new car. GROW UP!!!!!

Dear SB grandparents,
Stop rewarding the boy because you feel bad for him. His parents split up years ago and for the better. I can see buying him a car but to keep giving him a new one after he trashes the last one will not teach him anything.

To my cat, Aeris:
Where did you learn to play fetch?? you're a cat for crying out loud!!! I thought we humans were to fetch for you cats. Weird but one day, I will get it on video and put it on YouTube.

To the CS members,

If I am thinking of the same tea shop, they have a cool tea pot. It is clear and you put in the loose tea and then when it is done you set it on your cup and it pours out the bottom. It can be put in the dishwasher. It is very cool. I have one somewhere. I think the gnomes took it. *curses the gnomes*

Dear fellow SCposting Tea Drinker;

I cannot take my tea without milk. But due to certain time constraints visa vi having to eat in the meal hall and having to wear my retainer all time. I don't get as many opportunities to have a cup as I would like.

This usually results in my milk going bad.

Any suggestions for alternatives? I really want to have a cup of Lady Earl Grey, but I need my milk!

Dear Hina,

Unfortunately, I do not have an alternative to drinking tea without milk. I actually had to force myself to adjust drinking tea without milk. I can actually black tea without milk and sugar, but every other tea, I have to have sugar. (With the exception of Earl Grey Tea - it has to have milk & sugar). I like Lady Grey Tea because I can drink it without the milk (milk in the tea is bad for you. :cry: Or I'd still be drinking it with milk & sugar).

Anyone else out there have anything to help Hina?

Hopefully,
Rummy

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear EQ,

Unfortunately, the hotshot by Sunbeam doesn't have varying degrees. It comes with just one - boiling hot. However, you can either let it sit in the water reservoir and let it cool down or use a one cup pyrex glass measuring cup and pour the water into that and let it cool down. I highly recommend it 'cos I like my instant coffee and it's perfect for oatmeal/cream of wheat I sometimes make for Mr. & Child Rum. :D

It's at Amazon in either black or white (I have white).

Dear HMV,

I was feeling really disappointed by your choices in movies, TV shows and CDs. I was almost ready to ask them to refund the gift card I have because there was nothing there that I wanted. However, as I rounded the last corner of the store, just about to give up my search, I found the Holy Grail: a display of the Firefly DVDs and all of the Disturbed CDs, set up next to each other! And the two together exactly equaled the amount on my card! I actually did a little happy dance for the cashier as I was paying for my things. He giggled. Therefore I no longer hate you, and am satiated.

Dear sweet cute pain specialist,

Why did you not tell me the full hell I would go through with the side effects? Yesterday, it was horrid and I wanted to crawl into a ball and sleep through it all, but that didn't happen.

I woke up this morning feeling great! So, I thought I was fine and off to work I went, but by 3 PM I felt like last night. I had to tell BossMan I had to leave. Luckily, he had my note from you to say I might still be a bit out of it.

Your nurse told me it was fine and that next time I probably won't have any problems. I guess she didn't want me running off screaming into the night at the thought of another test. I won't run, I promise, since I like the fact that I can wake up and not be in pain. I can walk and not feel like my back is going to explode. So, I will willingly get up on the table again.

Just tell me the whole truth next time and I won't have to rip your arm off, mmkay?


Dear Whiner,

Congratulations, you got access to the databases you have no reason to have access to, so now do you think you could actually do some damn work for once? I did 72 accounts in the 5 hours I was at work today. You did 3 in the 2 hours you were there, before I left. In the first two hours I was there I had 30 accounts done, stop being a lazy trashy bitch and do the job you are paid to do.

I wish I had seen the blow out you had when you were told to do a Excel spreadsheet. I heard it was a sight to see you screaming and crying about having to actually do *gasp* WORK! In the 6 hours you were there last night you did ONE count it ONE account. I hope they are setting you up to fire you. BUH BYE!

I always miss out on the good stuff.

OH! If you for one second think you are taking over the case I was working on tonight I will break my foot off up your ass, got it? GOOD!! THAT IS MY CASE! You will see my full wrath if you even think of trying to take credit for my case/my work.
I am one bitch you do not want to piss off.

It is also none of your damn business why I left early. You are not my boss or even my supervisor, which means it's none of your business. Now go back to wondering what hair color to dye your hair to get you the most attention from random crack heads.

Dear Stinky Thing,

I assume you are either a rather small mouse or a very large bug, because if you were a normal sized mouse I'd be able to smell you in the hallway, and if you were a normal sized bug I wouldn't notice the smell at all.

I don't know wether you've died in the wall next to my door or in one of the dusty, abandoned shoes there, but I really wish you hadn't. It's a little disturbing to think that a rather small mouse or very large bug has possibly gotten into my bedroom, where I keep my books, stuffed animals, clothing, electronics, and entire livelihood. On that note, I really hope you've died in the wall. That sucks, but I'd prefer it.

You've been being stinky for about a week, so experience tells me you've got long 'bout another week to go. I'd love you forever if you made it shorter, though. You'd be my little not-stinky friend in the wall. Or shoe.
...I really need to find those rubber gloves...

Dear El,

Milk in tea is bad for you because it cancels out the good things that are in the tea. That's why the English aren't as healthy as the Chinese/Japanese who do not use the stuff in their teas.

As reported in the European Heart Journal (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/01/070108191523.htm).

Just thought y'all'd like to know that.

I use the powdered creamer stuff in my coffee. I can't drink it in my teas so my teas are sweetened but not creamered. (Is creamered even a word?)

Dear J,

Thank you for being patient with my ups and down. Luckily as of late, it seems to be mostly up. I'm glad you're finally in a computer phase because this is going to be awesome.

love,
The "bundle of quietly controlled chaos"


Dear B,

I adore you. I had forgotten how much so. I've also missed you. I don't see you anywhere near as often as I'd like. I'm glad seeing me got your ass in gear about changing some things, though I hadn't been trying. Seeing you reminded me of older days and my first secondary family. Thank you for the reassurance about chick. We're definitely hanging out more often. I hadn't realized just how big the hole was from you and her being gone but it felt good having at least half back for now.

Your BPF


Dear Chick,

We've had a lot happen with us and it's never been this bad. I still hold my ground that what you did was wrong. But I miss you. Other that B, there's never been anyone who shared that part of my sense of humor with me. B said this was just one of our lovers quarells. It feels wrong not to be able to talk to you. It's been two years but it still feels like there's something missing that's too important to be gone. There's so much we haven't talked about. I'm so happy for you about A. I wish S wasn't there though. I don't blame B for being pissed at him. You're better than this. I don't know what he'll say about me trying to talk to you again, but I hope you will anyway. I miss you and love you like a tummy full of fighting kittens.

Your Becca

Dear Rummy,

Wow thank you. I never knew that. I tend to only put the powdered creamer in the black teas. Green tea is too goo by itself!! I am hoping that this CHocolate Jasmine tea I found is any good.

If you have a Cost Plus World Market in your area they have some very interesting teas from around the world.

Thanks again!!

Dear current workplace,

While I appreciate the thought of asking me if I wanted to come in and work today (I could use the money), I really don't feel like giving up my last remaining day off. Isn't it enough that I agreed to come in tomorrow for 4 hours?

Sure, if you were my former place of employment, I more than likely would've gone in. Why? I would be more than adequately compensated for my trouble. You, current place of employment, offer NOTHING in the way of compensation. Not even a "thank you".

Busy trying to get the laundry done,

Dear Forumites,

Coincidently, I, too, am doing laundry today. Difference being, I accidently left the lid on the washer up (open) so now I have to resoap and rewash my clothes since the washing machine just drains the water, it doesn't hold it.

I suck.

Dear EQ,

Remind me to get some pictures demonstrating how one should do laundry properly. (I have found the pictures to help children learn to go potty, I'm sure there are pictures out there on how to do laundry properly). Once I find them, or I draw them myself (they'll be stick people with large box-like things, but hey, they'll be pictures!), I'll send them to you.

I'll copy this from my blog from an incedent that happened a while ago before I went into work:

Dear Old-Man Douchebag

Had I understood the garble spitting out of your old, decaying mouth, I would have indeed told you off, instead of laughing in a confused manner. Perhaps you got off easy in that sense, as I would not have been nice. As my 'elder' you would normally have my respect. However, just because you are older than me, does not mean you are better than me. You think that writing says something about my I.Q.? Ha! Had you known what it referred to, you would just realize it means I find a certain youtube video funny. And by golly, it wasn't even my own choice to have it on my car! It was done by my friends. I'm not a fan of those car markers, but since it was done by my very good friends, they're allowed to get away with it. I'm really glad you felt the need to go out of your way to make assumptions and insult a complete stranger. Really, I am. Because you know what that says about you? It says you're a complete asshole who has nothing better to do with his time.
Making assumptions is never good. I'm pretty sure my I.Q. is far more than yours, sir. I'm also fairly sure I know quite a bit more than you learned when you were in school.(although, I guess this would be assuming, wouldn't it?)
I really don't see what your point was. Was anything at all accomplished by what you said? No, nothing at all. Have fun insulting and assuming about other complete strangers for no reason.

Dear Mother Nature,
Please be in a good mood on Valentine's Day weekend. I really want to see my nephew and baby niece. And my sister too, i suppose. Thank you!

Dear McDonalds,
Why can you NEVER get my iced coffee order right when i go to drive-thru? It's just a flavored coffee with extra shot of flavor! I don't want plain iced coffee. I don't want a Splenda packet to mix in it! I just want more flavor sweetness. Meanies!!!!!!

Dear Hubby,
When I say you never give me anything and you respond with "that's not true. I give you headaches", I will admit it is funny but would it kill ya to buy me flowers once in a while. yes they do die as all living things must go through the circle of life but they smell and look pretty. Except that one flower my mom had that looked pretty but smelled like a skunk died in it. yuck!


Dear Nintendo,
I love Love LOVE the Wii!!! It's so pretty. And I love your virtual console because I can get me some old school games. but can you please bring back Kickle Cubicle, Caveman Games, and Trog! Those games bring back some good memories and were tons o' fun!!

Me

Dear Idiot at the Dentist,
I know you told me the appointment was at 1:30. I was paying attention plus I wouldn't have taken one at 11:30 cause thats lunch time. I understand that you wanted to leave early cause it was Xmas eve but that's no excuse. I should have guessed when you called and asked how soon I could get there. I just found the appointment card you wrote and it said 1:30. Now it a month later and I still have 2 weeks till the new appointment. If there were any other dentist I would go to them.

Pissed Off,

Dear MIL,

Thank you for turning the down the opportunity to watch Child Rum on the 27th of January. It's not like I actually wanted to go to my father's retirement party or anything. :mad:

However, you're slowly beginning to show your true colors to us and Mr. Rum is beginning to realize you don't give two shakes about our child. This is good. Perhaps we won't have to visit you as often.

Thankfully,
Rummy

Dear Warehouse Company,

Hi. You know me. I have a storage unit in your set of Warehouses. I'm gonna be paying the past due fees for my Parent's unit, along with next month in advance.

Thank you for not over-locking them, even though they're 4 months past due. Thank you for not over-locking me when I was two months past due. I appreciate the trust you put in us, and we will repay evey last red cent we owe you.

I just wanted to let you know we appreciate what you do for us. You keep our things safe and out of the weather. You have a security camera that runs 24/7/365 to keep people from breaking in and stealing our valuables, what little we have (and, really, who's gonna hock a bunch of manga, a cherry table, and a walnut rocker that needs to be fixed anyhow?).

Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

-Your Customer


Dear EQ,

Well, Sister. We have some things you need to hang onto, essentially inheriting what's left of our family property. The cherry coffee table and rocker is yours. Mom doesn't want to get rid of her Peacock chairs, so you're gonna be stuck with them. I hope you get a house with a sunroom to house them in, 'cause they're big. :D The TV is yours, too. I haven't treated it very well, what with bumping into it constantly and it catching my feet when squeezing between it and the couch to reach the door (there has to be a better way to house a HUGE TV in a small room). I accidentally broke part of it somehow, the part that hooks up to the cable. So you're gonna have to hook up via a VCR or DVD Player. I'm sorry, I don't know how it happened. I have the part still, so if I can get it fixed when we get out there I'll pay for it.

You'll be getting my 220 piece collection of Manga (I think only 200 of them is yaoi) and any others I pick up while on the road, along with the rest of my sci-fi and comic collection of which is not cataloged yet.

I'm not sure how, but I managed to pick up two sidetables that seriously need a nice matte finish in black. I seriously have no clue how I got them. I'm pretty sure I have a use for one, so if you need the other you can have it.

If not then we're gonna have to have a pretty large yard sale when we hit your place.

I still have your bookcases, and I can make some built-ins while I'm there if you want. I'll even stain them for ya! I know you'll be looking for work, or working full-time by the time we get there, so we'll do our best to stay out of your way and not bother you when you come home tired.

You'll get the rest of your music collection back, with a couple more albums added that I'm sure you'll like.

I'm pretty positive you'd like your two bottles of Duke's mayo back. They will be safely tucked away in Claudia-Jeep so you'll get them first thing we pull up.

I'm keeping my blankets, though. All twelve of them. And my green candles. And my movies.....and the PS2. :p I WILL FINISH THAT STUPID RATCHET&CLANK GAME BEFORE I DIE! *Throttles Ratchet Plushie*

There's more, but I'm not down at the Warehouses to tell you everything. You'll get your coin collection and your Magic: The Gathering collection back. That much I remember for sure (mostly because both are practically staring me in the face).

My lifestyle is about to change in a very big way. I'm going to change. Please bear with me during this transformation. I'll be asking a lot of you, maybe a lot of which I really shouldn't burden you with, and at times you will hate me with the passion of a thousand suns.

I'll still be your little brother.

With a whole lotta love, despite the shit I'm about to put you through,
Das Mel

Just because you deny a religion exists doesn't make it true. I told you I have a neighbor who belongs to the one you are denying exists. I know she does, because when she bakes me goodies, she slips a pamphlet in with it to save my heathen soul.

Dear Skank-Muffin I have for a roommate,

You make me sick!!! I thought this would be a better living situation. Guess not.

I am disgusted that you have been the "other woman" with 2 different men, and that you are just with your current man for the sex.
That, and you're hoping in 8 years, when ex's son turns 18, you think he'll leave his wife and come back to you!

Oh, and if you really need some extra cleaning somewhere, just ask nicely, don't talk really loudly to someone on the phone, and huff and puff about how this is the 2nd time you had to clean the bathroom...in 4 months BITCH!

P.S. Tell your neanderthal bf that when he uses the toilet, he needs to stop peeing on the seat, and to remember to put the farkin seat down! Women live here, and if he can't do it, he needs to fucking go HOME! and you can go with him!!!

Dear stupid sister in law.

Its lovely that you finally got a myspace page. And yay you wanted to add me. but your really really stupid. posting pictures of yourself and my brother smoking pot in a public profile is dumb. posting pictures of you sitting and going through and seperating a bunch of pot is stupid.

What really gets on my nerves is the picture of my 8 year old neice flipping off the camera. What type of parent are you? Hell all i would need to so if i wanted to take the children away from you is to show a judge your myspace profile.

Oh and saying you have "twin boys two girls and a pet husband" on your profile is not cute.

When you/your mother are in the process of buying a buttload of groceries, when you see that there are NO baggers available, and I have absolutely NO MORE ROOM to put food after it has been scanned, maybe, juuuuuuuuuuuuuust maybe, you might want to jump in and start bagging.

I'm not saying that you should bag everything, but DAMN! Grab a bag and get started. Even a half-bags worth of groceries would have been a huge help.

I know things are crazy and you are both very excited, but thank you for not going completely crazy and bouncing off walls. Thank you for helping Mommy pack your things as much as you could. Things will calm down soon enough.

And thank you for the hugs. Mommy needs lots of those!

I was also nauseated and dizzy. It was not fun.

So, what are you trying to do to do to me, this time?


Dear BossMan,

Stop dumping more work on my desk. I have enough to do as it is. Why not give it to the girl who thinks she gets paid to update her facebook and MySpace page or chat in the AIM chat thing she downloaded on her computer.

Whiner gets paid more than I do, but I do triple the work she does, so ask her to do it! DAMN!

You and Whiner are the reason I started smoking more! GRRR!


Dear friend,

Thanks for listening to me bitch about Whiner all the time, since she pisses me the hell off.

Plus, you know if we did even half the crap she does we would be called on the carpet in no time.

Yes, it's very cool that you get to walk around our office building all day long with guns on your hips...you're totally rockin' the "Old West Cowboy" look.

However, just cause you have lights and sirens in your unmarked cars in the parking lot doesn't mean you have to set them off every freaking Friday!

Yes, I'm sure they need to be checked that everything is working properly, but a half hour of 3 cars going at the same time while you all stand around showing off chatting about which has the loudest horn isn't productive for anyone on this entire side of the building. Really.

Daughter, Son and I are at the hotel. They are sound asleep. Baby Girl is kicking and dancing away and keeping Mommy up right now but I'm going to MAKE her let me sleep pretty soon, since we're heading out early tomorrow.

Drive today was alright. Kids were good. Traffic was as good as can be expected. :p Tomorrow's going to be a long day, but I'll see Hubby in less than twenty four hours and hopefully the beds will be all set up when we get there and I can take a nap! (I don't sleep well on beds that aren't "mine".)

Keeping my fingers crossed you get a good JobCorps assignment! Keep us posted, hun!

Dear *Company*

So, remember how EIGHT MONTHS ago, the CFO was gonna get a new laptop (nothing wrong with his current one, he just wants a bigger screen) and I get his old one? I still don't understand why I didn't get the new one since mine is a POS.
So EIGHT MONTHS LATER the CFO is apparently getting his new laptop "this week". Even so, it's too little too late. The second *New Company* contacts me and lets me know I've gotten the job, I'm putting in my resignation. And there's nothing you can do to stop me. Even tripling my salary wouldn't work. Because you're all morons.

And you didn't just sit there -- you actually helped! Thanks to both of you, my house is almost completely unpacked! (There are still a few boxes, but it's mainly seasonal decorations and such and things we don't use every day).

PLUS you tried to get me to let you pay us back for the lock we put on the back gate. You are doing too much! You are very sweet though and Daughter and Son adore you, as do I. Thank you for being cool. And I don't get the feeling you're one that will just show up without being invited.

Dear Fuzzy Slobbering Dog In The Sky,

It's me again. I'm just letting you know that I'm okay. Money's about to get tight, but after I pay off the Warehouses (both mine and Mom and Dad's, the checks are made out already, just have to deliver them), and get gas, I'll be good until next paycheck, which means I can put the 400$ back into my ING Account (I didn't even use it for anything! I'm so pathetic).

The Next Paycheck I'm going to have to pay off the electric bill again. I've been running the heaters pretty much constantly because of the single-digit temperatures, so if you could warm up the place for Spring, that'd help me out quite a bit.

I've decided to wait a little longer to get WoW. I mean, sure, it'd help relieve my boredom, especially since Mom's working Audit and I can use their Wi-Fi for my game and downloading more anime (I found a new anime, and I love it so much).

Work is slow, but it will speed up a little bit in the coming two weeks what with Single's Awareness Day (Valentine's) happening soon.

Anyhow, I was wondering if you could do me a little favour. Alan-Aniki is sending his Momma and Best Friend to Kusanagi, so I was wondering if you could send Kay-Cari to help watch over him. I'd offer my help, but since I'm still land-bound, I'm kinda stuck on the East Coast, at least until June. Give me a little bit of insight as to what he had done in a previous life to get such horrid Karma, can ya? I'd offer his Karma Account some of mine, but I'm running pretty low as it is. Give him a couple, though. Just two or three. It's not much, but it doesn't take a whole lot to go into the red.

It makes me sad to see life shit on him like this, and he's a really good person. A better person than I, at any rate (but then, seeing as my morals are fucked up, that's not really all that hard).

Tell Mistress Karma to give him a break, okay?

Love you, ya slobbering lump of fuzz.

Dear life,
Please stop sucking. I need a break, any break. I'm not asking for much, maybe a drastic turnaround in roommates, so maybe both pay on time instead of just one, maybe better coworkers so I can get off work on time everyday rather than just once a week, maybe some nice winnings next time I go to Wendover, maybe let me meet the guy of my dreams... hell, I'd settle for even a night without having homework to do. Anything that would make you easier would be great.

Dear Women of the Universe,

I like sex. I mean, I REALLY like sex. I also like videogames. These two forces have waged war for years. I would like to say that I like videogames more than I like sex were it not for the following dilemma that I'm sure any gamer would cringe at as well...

Let's say you're playing an RPG. You're at the boss of the whole game. The special one. For the super awesome ending. Yeah, that one. You've put hundreds of hours into the game already, because it's just that awesome. You've been in this battle for an hour, the dungeon hours before that, and all without a savepoint. This is the first time you've even gotten to this guy because it's so ridiculously difficult to get to him.

It's game time. It's on. Suddenly, your significant other starts giving you head like a rabid sexmonkey. Videogame. Sex. Videogame. Sex. The war continues. In THAT instance, I will probably pull you off me, saying something utterly pathetic like "Eeeh, gimme 15 minuuuuutes!!" even though I know the final cutscene, should I actually triumph, will probably be an hour or more.

By that point, you're not interested in sex anymore and think we care more about videogames. Wrong. Absolutely not. And actually, while I can't think of a scenario right now, I'm sure at some point you'll have something similar happen to you, but you'll probably get away with it with only the hair raising retort of "...Yes, dear."

So women of the universe...all men have hobbies. None of them match what you mean to us. But for God's sake, LET US ENJOY THEM!

Sunshine and puppies filled to the brim with napalm,

I've done a lot for you. Hospital visits, giving you money, working and going to school, both full time so that you'd have somewhere to live, endless nights of little to no sleep... I did it all out of my love for you and not for you to give me something in return some day...

But this is the first time I've really needed you to go out of your way to do something for me... And you're stalling, giving me excuses, putting it off...

Please, I just need you to do this one thing. If you can't, I don't know if I'll ever be able to ask for help again. It's embarrassing enough as it is without being turned down all the time.

On my knees,
Me

Dear disease living in my chest,

Did you just poke me in the side? Hel-LO pain. Also, what have you been doing for the last hour, punching me? I know you don't LOVE me or anything, but...crud.

This was not the Disneyland ride I signed up for, guys. I signed up for one of the slow boring ones, and somehow got a cross between the Matterhorn and Space Mountain with several stolen dashes of a true-blue roller coaster. WHAT GIVES?

Dear CSers,

Thanks for listening to me. I've not had much exciting to say lately, but if I don't say something, I shall scream. At this hour, this will awaken people. At any hour, it will hurt. :(

Dear Men Of The Universe,

I just don't understand....don't you all want to get laid? Isn't that what you all whine about all the time? But apparently, watching TV, sleeping, playing video games...these things are more important? sheesh

Dear Men of the Universe (of which I am one),

Bwah? Where are these men for I have never met one (save for Gunsage up the thread a little).

If the ladies need loving them goddamn it you do your best to provide it for them (though give us a small break about sleep or sickness, and remeber how mad you get if we attempt loving during each).

There's an old adage "when she ain't happy, you ain't happy" and if loving makes them happy, then do it!

I'd rather lose a video game than sleep in a cold bed, or couch (if I get kicked out of it).

Dear Women of the Universe,

I apologize for my brethren who don't realize that love is a precious thing, and the life is even more so. And that no game, tv show, etc. will ever be better.

They don't seem to realize that we don't know how much time we have in the world, and that we should live it to the fullest, not spend "loving time" doing other things.


Dear Men,

In other words! If you can get it, hit it!

Why? Why must you both be so difficult? I realize I am not as "perfect" as my brothers, for whom you seem to do anything and everything, but for gods sakes can't you help me with this one thing? I really don't have fifty dollars to get notarizations and for fees just to get a copy of my birth certificate. Nor do I have four - eight weeks to wait for it. Both of you have copies. Would it kill you to mail me my birth certificate so I can get further EDUCATION, and thus succeed in life, which is what you say you want??????

Unless you know how to drive in the snow/ice stay off the road! I'm fed up of telling people not to drive up steep slopes when they should know better!

If you're going to fit snow chains make sure you know how to use them and that they're the right type for your car. Again, make sure you know how to drive while they're fitted!

Just because you're in a 4x4 doesn't mean you're invincible, you have road tyres, not mud + snow; plus you have exactly nil experience in driving in these conditions. Stay At Home.

Dear RW,

The bus was late getting Child Rum home. So I called the school. They were just about to call me. A car hit the school bus that my daughter was riding. The bus and the kids are alright. The car that hit the bus was not. Fortunately, as it's a Special Needs bus, all children were strapped in. Child Rum was excited about getting to ride a new bus home. She seemed okay. However, she was scared when the new bus did arrive to take her home as it wasn't her regular bus. I never want to hear those words again.

If I get sun in Northern Virginia, I will be sending it to you as you are a sunworshipper. I do not like the sun as it turns my skin an awful shade of Lobster Red. I need SPF 1,000,0000. :p

Grow up and learn to use your damn brain for once in your miserable life, instead of worrying how to get knocked up by some random crack addict who will take off so you can get welfare.

They day that someone higher than BossMan decides you are fired will be the day I am doing a happy dance right in front of you.

Dear Parents [Mom in particular],

I realize you look at me as a disappointment. I realize I'm not one of your "perfect" sons. I realize I've made decisions you're not happy with, and that I've broken bridges. But I don't think they're burnt down completely yet. I'm trying to rebuild them. Could you, please, for once, just ACT like you're happy to hear from me? I mean really. Do you realize how much you're hurting your daughter? Dad I know I'm not your only daughter, but I'm the only daughter that contacts you. Mom I AM your only daughter.

Mom, I got online tonight, and for the first time in at least several years, I saw you signed into AIM. So I messaged you. I didn't want anything but to talk to my mother. Did you answer? No. you got offline without so much as a "I can't talk right now." And the crap when I called you about my birth certificate? Why can't I ask my "boyfriend" for the money? Um, lets see, he's paying our BILLS? We have no extra money. Don't you understand that?

But really, that's not the point. Mom, you've got MS. No, you don't have the "Bad" MS, but still. Dad, you've got CANCER. Sure, you're in remission. Still. One would think you'd want to make the best of whatever time the Gods give us, because you never know what's going to happen when. Or didn't me almost dying while pregnant show you that?

Seriously, I've tried. I don't know how many more times I can try. If you can't act like you care, my FIANCE's family does, and they show it. Unlike Idiot's family, they care about ME, not whatever children I might bring to their family. I can't take much more of your treating me like trash, like the person you have to talk to because they're family but you just would rather be doing anything else. I'm your daughter, not some far off, crazy cat lady aunt or cousin. If this goes on much longer, the next time I move, you won't know where I'm going. I'm sorry, I just can't take it much longer. My heart can't handle it.

I love you, I'll always love you, but I won't be anyone's doormat. Not Idiot's, not any man's, and NOT yours.

your Daughter.

Know that you can always call when you need it. But please, if you call at 10:30 PM (knowing how early we get up) crying asking me to call your mother to tell her you're going to the hospital, some details would be nice.

Now that I know what's wrong I understand why you were having trouble talking, and why you didn't want to talk to your sister. But you could have at least told me what hospital, or what was wrong.

Dear Mother in Law,

I understand why you got rid of the house phone, but you need to leave your cell phone in your bedroom where you can hear it when asleep!

SIL tried to call you for 1/2 hour before giving up and calling us. Then we tried for another 1/2 hour before you finally called back, and then called SIL's boyfriend to find out what happened.

Dear CS,

Since you may be going "huh" my sister in law had an ovarian cyst burst causing her all sorts of pain and making it difficult to breathe. She lives with her BF but needs her mother to sign paperwork/be present since she's the next of kin, and she wanted her mom with her since she was in pain.

She called, we were asleep but I answered the phone. She was crying, then the above happened.

Dear CS,
My mum's plan is to stop renting this house, and move into another house, within walking distance of this house. This 'another' house is bigger, and has an in-law suite, and she'll be making house payments instead of rent, and they'd be lower. But she has to have high enough credit so they'll let her even try. And her credit was trashed when her last husband died, leaving her with his unpaid debts even though they were legally separated. :(

Dear ex:

Why did you waste two hours whining about a possible medical problem to ME?! I may love watching medical shows and have two MDs as muses, but that does not mean I myself am a doctor. Don't relay symptoms that tell me you should get to a hospital and then find excuses when I tell you to do so. If nothing's actually wrong, get an actual doctor to tell you that. I am not and have never been qualified to dispense medical advice.

Sorry, but I have little real sympathy being that you refused to do what a sane person would. Three times (something similar happened last year, as I recall and you walked out of the ER in a huff after only waiting ten minutes...I would hope that coughing up blood would convince you to stay until they figured out what was wrong).

Oh, when I tell you at any time I'm hanging up on you because I need to study, that is not an invitation to try to keep me on the phone or keep calling. Just because you haven't grasped the finer points of education doesn't mean you have the right to keep me from doing so. If you prevent me from studying a critical bit and I fail the exam due to same, can I send you a bill for the cost of taking the test twice?

Would you care to tell me why I have the outline (that is, chords) for five verses/sections (? or something?) of music and no notes written for sure yet? Would you also like to tell me why there is a Finale file laid out with four instruments (flute, acoustic guitar, piano, and cello) in B major at 90 beats per minute with one tentative note staring at me? Why is this?

That reason would be you. I love you. I've been trying not to ignore you. I will feed you with chances to play with the nice shiny musical toys in the house if you will stop walking out on me. If you ever become reliable, we can both make money, maybe, which would be awesome. This means that I can buy more shiny musical toys for you to play with, like that grand piano you've been drooling over for the last decade. Wouldn't that be cool?

Stop walking out on me. I don't like writing music by myself. I think about it too much.

I hope we have a long layover in Atlanta, so maybe you can take a long lunch or something and come see us, and meet the SO for the first time, this time BEFORE I marry him.

Love you muchly
your grateful sister

I understand your scenario. However, when one's husband is watching a TV show on the internet that he can watch at any other time, then you know what? He's a selfish pig who must just like to make his wife cry.

Dear idrinkarum,

Yes, you're correct. That is absolutely, 100% selfish of him. He could, at any point, stop and go back to it.

And, I'm sorry, the videogame will still be there in thirty minutes - you can replay it.

AdminAssistant,

The problem, or I should say the main problem, men have with women that either don't get or don't want to get videogames was just now thoroughly expressed with your comment. See, you're saying I "can just replay it." Well Oprah, you may be surprised to know that "just replaying it" isn't quite that easy in most situations. I'm not going to bother drawing up another scenario that has and potentially will happen in the immediate future.

No, what I'm going to say is my scenario could, in fact, happen. Hasn't, no, but could. Some games are not very considerate about their savepoints. I can think of several, but that's irrelevant. The point is that, as mentioned before, if I haven't had a savepoint for hours and I'm on the final battle, knowing full well it could be an hour to fight this guy and an hour after that if I win, hell no I'm not doing whatever you want just because ZOMG UR A WOMANS!

I don't know you and therefore I won't make further assumptions. What I will say is you're stating I'm being inconsiderate, but really, I'd say it's the other way around.

Bunnies and brimstone,

Oh, I used to be quite the game player myself - but I got yanked away from a game many many times without a save point. I don't let games (or tv shows or anything like that) rule my life. People are more important. :shrug: Actually not a problem I have with BoyThing - he just works all the damn time and at weird hours. Which I understand. But it doesn't make it less frustrating. *sigh* c'est la vie!

BoyThing,

I'm going to call you. Pick up your phone this time, 'k? Cause I really hate it when you 1) don't answer and then 2) don't call back. I'm calling cause I want to talk to you, dammit!

Dear HR lady,
F you for telling me what to put on my W4 in '07 when I was completely clueless, I shouldn't have listened to you when I had the sneaking suspicion that you were wrong. I didn't think much of it last tax season because I didn't have to pay the IRS anything.

This year, I now owe $523 to the IRS. Thank you very much. I was looking forward to getting my taxes back so I could pay off my credit card and pay for my new Fibromyalgia meds (that I have to pay out of pocket.) Well, so much for that.

I still can't figure out why I didn't owe the IRS anything last year though.

F you, and I'll be seeing you tomorrow to figure out what the hell happened.

Dear IRS,
Please don't make me pay that all at the same time? :( I won't be able to pay for ANYTHING because I'm a total retard and I have $200 to my name and credit debt from school tuition and other random things I needed to pay for. :(

Dear economy,
Suck it.

Dear vodka,
As much as I love you, we can't be together for a while. I might come back at a later date, but I can't make too many promises. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo


Dear self,
Good f-ing job, buddy. Next time you think something is wrong, speak the F up. Better find a way to pay that crap off and be able to pay for rent and all your other stuff. Also, try to save some money sometime...I know it's hard, but it's getting to that point. Don't let R get all that crazy food at the store when you can pay for 1/2 that price if it's NOT organic.

Dear mom,
Why are you claiming me as a dependent? You aren't paying for anything of mine in any way what so ever. Last I checked, I don't live with you and I pay for ALL of my expenses with my $11 an hour-20 hour a week-no benefits-job. If you get any kind of incentive on your taxes, you best be giving that to me. You really piss me off, and I was thinking about all the BS you pulled when I was younger and I think that you really shouldn't have bred. When you have a child, you have to take care of them and not treat them as though they are an inconvenience to you. It's not about YOU all the time.

Dear R,
Ya know...I love you and all but sometimes you really get on my nerves. It's not about what YOU want when it comes to something I would like. It's like everything else when it comes to what I would enjoy. Makes me feel like shit when you ask me what I want, then go "UGH NO" in response. I like flowers and I'm sorry if you don't like them, but it's not about you. No one has ever gotten them for me, and I would appreciate it very much if you were to get them for me. However, I can't make you do something.

Dear D,
I can deal with some things, but trying to be in control of things that you aren't really in control of gets on my nerves. If C says I can turn my phone off, I'm going to do it. There's no point to having it on Fridays after 5 because EVERYONE is CLOSED and I get angry people who like to get pissy with me for not being able to help them. (Granted, they deserve it for waiting until the LAST second to call about things, but still.)
Also, please stop calling me stupid/dummy/blessing my heart, etc. then acting like it's a joke and you didn't mean it. You did, and it's pretty obvious.

Dear Bank,

Did you take math in high school? Hey, what about accounting? Perhaps any programming? Here's the deal...if I have a line of credit chock full of $500 that's available as an overdraft account and has worked as such for the, oh, FIVE YEARS or so that I've been there, explain to me why I had to explain the functionality of it and question why you would put an overdraft fee on my account when I went to pay for something that was $5, but my checking only had $3, still my overdraft had $500?

Could you also explain why...

#1 - The customer service representative didn't understand it either until I showed her, more or less with charts, graphs, and sock puppet theatre, why it was a load of BS.

#2 - She still stated an oh so patronizing "Wellllllllllllllllll, we'll take off the fee this time," despite her acknowledging my point.

#3 - When she got done talking to her supervisor, all information in hand, she called me back to NOT ONLY REITERATE THE FALLACY OF THE ORIGINAL POINT, but also tack on the patronization again.

Finally, could you explain WHY I would still want to be a member of your bank, especially now that I've paid my car off? Here's an idea. Fill yourself full of candy and chocolates so I can go beat the hell outta you this weekend at least have the satisfaction of turning your obvious loan shark operation into a pinata.

Dear Matt,

I've filed every year for the past two years as HOH, I was never told I had to have children but it seems the law states otherwise (http://taxes.about.com/od/filingstatus/qt/headofhousehold.htm) (and I first did my taxes with H&R Block!). I was told that since my parents didn't claim me as a Dependant, I could file as Head of Household. So I did.
I just wrote that I was HOH on my W-2s. I think I'll be going to my work's accountant and asking him to change it though. Since it does me little to no good anyways.
The requirements are:
* You are unmarried or "considered unmarried" on the last day of the year.
* You paid more than half the cost of keeping up a home for the year.
* A "qualifying person" lived with you in the home for more than half the year (except for temporary absences, such as school). However, if the "qualifying person" is your dependent parent, he or she does not have to live with you.

Hope that helps, though I fear I may have confused you more.

No it helped. It makes me think the H&R Block lady was wrong because at the time my parents were not claiming me, I lived with my GF who made less money than me (she's now my wife and makes more, lol).

But it means I couldn't have claimed last year. But it explains why my wife's coworker's BF files HOH.

Thank-you.

When you come home from your dad's on sunday you better have learned to sleep. Waking up at 3:30 (or 2:30 or whatever) and screaming until your sister wakes up is not ok. Not going back to bed and screaming bloody murder is also not ok. Sleeping in my full size bed with you, your sister and Mamie (grandma) is NOT fun. The fact that it took your sister almost 30 minutes to sleep this afternoon because you were screaming is not ok. And that it took you almost an hour and me having to put you on my bed.. not ok.

Now that you are out of jail and a regestered sex offender stay the hell away from my best friend. She doen't want to see you ever again. I think she has that right. You may have heard of her brother's upcoming wedding. You WILL NOT be welcome there. Add to that he's a police officer and many police offer friends would be there as well. If you lived through the event you would be in jail on any charges they could think up that might stick. Stalking and harrassment are 2 off the top of my head. I don't care if you found Jesus while you spent 16 years behind bars adn just want to appologise to her for hurting her. Stay the fuck away. I won't be there to kick your ass, and I won't get a good play by play from her cause she'd be too upset.

Dear roomate,

Ya know what? EVERYTIME I give you a check, you sit your fat ass on it 2-3 weeks. EVERYTIME. You complain about not having any money, but you sit on my check so that leads me to believe that it's really not that big of a deal. Especially with the $10k a semester that you get for loans and stuff. You have more money than R and I combined at any given time.

As of recent, it seems as though I am not making as much money as I am needing to spend. Especially with the IRS tax BS I have to deal with, I AM BROKE.

Do NOT come up to me, and ask me for money the way that you did tonight. Yes, I understand that I owe you. I also asked you if it was alright to give you half this paycheck and half next paycheck that way I'm not COMPLETELY strapped for cash. Don't look at me and go "Well, what am *I* supposed to do then?" Maybe get rid of your Iphone, and stop going out to eat EVERYNIGHT, stop spending money on stuff you DON'T need. There's a difference between being honestly strapped for cash, and not having beer money.

F you,
Me.
