Quoting Raven

I hate when people are late and i hate to wait but to be honest I'm guilty of this myself, especially when it comes to working late (its such a pain, isn't it ) but i always let people know, my phone is normally stuck to my ear . When work or more recently my family don't get in the way then i'm normally early (which can be really bad, i've been known to be so early that i gave out when my friend arrived 10 mins late without prewarning me because i'd been there ages, it was a total over reaction ).

Psst! Those going to the Willie Clancy Festival, take note!!!

Yeah Hien! She will only rip ONE of your arms off and beat you with it if you make her wait!

nope, he'd need his arms to play instruments so probably would have to be a leg

Isn't "clancy" another name for poo...?

And to add to the topic: not only does my boss take Mondays and Fridays off, he can't even make it in before 10 the other 3 days - and we start at 8:30! How's one supposed to get any work done when he wants to see everything before it goes out! Oh, the humanity! The illogic of it all!

Sounds like where I used to work... Now, the attitude is "Go home - enjoy your weekend" and everyone works different hours and has all kinds of time off - which is fine and all, except we work for clients, so we're supposed to be oh, I don't know, available, maybe? And I have to find excuses as to why this and that isn't done yet, when the real reason is because there's nobody here! I would have thought all this flexibility would be paradise, but it's frustrating when you need a team to get the work done and we're actually AT work all together for about (no kidding) 12 hours a week.

It must be my week for rants! Next up, boyfriends who leave the toilet seat up... grrr....

Men!

Allow me to rant about my Irish boyfriend and his 2 Irish friends who have decided to go camping in Maine this week. Last time the novices camped, I said: "Don't keep food in the tent!" So what do they do? They EAT in the tent, and leave their leftovers in the corner.

So this time, I say: "I'm not kidding! It's not just in the movies! Bears can smell food for miles!" So what do they do? They leave sausages out on the grill over night. And my boyfriend calls proudly to tell me that "They were all gone this morning!" I give up! Just pour barbeque sauce over your head and run around naked through the woods! See if I care!

(I do, really. That's what's so frustrating.)

They'll care when one of them comes home without toes or possibly minus a leg and arm... But, until they run head-long into one on a trail - chances are it's not going to sink in any time soon. Too bad too - because you like this guy!

Sorry, I'll leave now - nothing to rant about at the moment... ;)
