Need to rant? Post it here :p

A nice, clean place to put down your rant of the day. Whether it's simply because you forgot your keys in an old pair of jeans, or because someone at home REALLY REALLY bothered you, it has a home here. I think we should keep it non-bettafish related, though, so to avoid problems here in the forum. AKA, don't rant about something happening in another thread (; Feel free to rant about your bettas in general, just not the forum :p

For me, I'm simply tired of my stepdad. Everything he does and says is meant as a put down to somebody, be it me, my mom, or my brother. Never his son, though. Whatever. He was supposed to leave this week for vacation, but it got canceled. Yay.
Also, school's starting and my homework is going slowly :x I have a week to read the Scarlet Letter. A good book, by the by. Shouldn't be hard, but I feel a bit rushed.
Last of all, Vali is flaring so much that he's ripped some holes in his fins >_< put in some cleaner water w/ some salt and a small dose of bettafix. I know a lot of people don't agree with it, but it's always worked wonders with me, so I don't want to be told about how horrible it is.

Let's see if this thread'll be a bust ^_^

When I was a kid the only thing my step dad and I ever did was fight. I feel your pain, girl. lol...
Now that I'm out of the house and we don't have to see eachother every day our relationship has gotten a lot more tame. It's nice. :)

I am so mad at some people. Here is the usual conversation:

"Why are you so interested in betta fish? That is so wierd."

"Because they are awesome! They are jam packed with personalities...Etc."

"Your Wierd."

*Facepalm*

It's okay to lol at my rant. :p

1)
i hate posting my latest work of art on my FB so the person i made it for can get it easily and have 20+ notifications saying "draw me arts, draw me, omg do me, ECT..." on the photo. and then have them bug me for it when im resting my eyes from staring at a laptop screen for an average of 4-5 hours. >>;;; please gimme a break between arts ~.~

2) i hate it when people judge me by my art name "Violet Intensiv Trauma" theres nothing weird about it. yes im dark yes im unique but nothings "Weird" about making an image for yourself under a unique name cuz honestly you cant mix me up with another person thanks to it D<

okay im done for now ^^;;;

Finally on break from work! GAH

Opened today, and the other host decided he didn't feel like showing up. I ended up having to cover his shift as well as my own. Double trouble. So there I was, by myself on a VERY BUSY morning at Applebee's... Almost went on a wait. I'm so tired. Luckily my managers rock and let me have a break before my second shift at 4.


I can only think of very few circumstances where a no call-no show would be acceptable. No longer being alive, being unconscious, in the hospital, or a serious family emergency. But even then, someone if not the employee should be able to notify work. I have a feeling that none of these happened to him. Jerk. Made a lot of money today though :)

Needed to get that off of my chest.

I don't understand how not showing up isn't a fireable offense. There are PLENTY of people out there that need jobs that are more than willing to show up.. why waste your time on someone who doesn't have the common courtesy to call?

I agree.. unless you are dead/dieing, stranded on a dessert island, being held captive for ransom, or are in the hospital you had better call with a darned good excuse for not showing.

At my job you're limited to 3 no call-no shows... And I think that's even too much.

That's alright, when he does decide to show he never does his job, and when someone asks him to to do something he always WITHOUT FAIL has an attitude about it, so I don't think the management will keep him around much longer... Plus I get paid through tip share, which is split between the hosts... and since he wasn't there I made all of it today. ;)

Exactly! LOL

Another rant:

Personally, I liked this website when I first joined. There were alot more mature people on, there was almost 0 trolls on, Etc. Just take the Establishing Standards Thread. It is a good Idea, but IMO, It has got out of hand.

Yahoo is blocking some of my e-mails for no reason -.-;
Just had the person over who wants Happi. She stayed for an hour, and while here her siblings tore up my room =/ STILL, she loves the little guy, so it seems like he's definitely getting a home. I've just got to clean up the cardboard on my floor, now.

I'm sorry about all ya'll's woes. <=[ I hope everything sorts out/doesn't happen again. =[

Here's mine:

Family problems. BIG family problems. In short: my dad's an ***. A complete and total **. I'm so tired of being hurt and disappointed and being accused of thievery. It's insane and ridiculous.

Off Topic but:

Fortunately I worked a 16 hour shift yesterday. Half of which was with The Manager From Hell and at the end of the night when SHE counted my drawer she was forced to acknowledge that it was PERFECT and give me a free meal! >8] Take THAT!!!!! >8]

Oh! And in other good news my job is over soon! =] I'll have free time to clear my room out and sell my stuff. Then I can buy clothes for college and supplies with the money and I'll have more room in here for if I come back. I'll also have more time to focus on Genie! =]

EDIT: Took some personal info out because well. My sister IS a member of this forum. =/

Thanks CR for making this thread!

I hate to one-up anyone... but it's been on my mind since Monday...
I have to go to my first funeral tomorrow morning. A very close childhood friend of mine passed. Though I know closure is exactly what I need, I'm just nervous/anxious/scared/etc. to go... I guess I don't handle death well..

Have any of you been through this? I'm just not sure what to do at this point.

I've been through it... It's very hard at first to go, but trust me when I say that you'll feel better afterwards. Being able to see how many people loved that one person really brings a type of closure to you. Feel free to cry, most other people will be, too. Share memories, laugh and joke. They wouldn't want you to feel sad about their deaths, but to laugh and remember the good times. It's hard, but it'll get better.

She was definitely one of those people that could find the positive in anything, and wouldn't want us to mourn, but to celebrate her life. Thanks, CR, that makes me feel a lot better. It'll be nice to reunite with some old friends that will be attending as well... I just wish it wasn't under these circumstances that we'd see each other again. It didn't seem like her time to go.

My best friend passed away in 2007. Going to her funeral was a lot better then I had expected, even with a baby in tow. I got to meet up with so many old friends and everyone had a blast just as she would have wanted.

I'm fed up with dumb threads like this one.
HAHAHA!! I'm sooooooo kidding!!!!

Here's mine:
I've applied for about 4 different stores in my company. I don't care where I go in the US as long as I get out of here!! I'm applying for the same position so you don't think it would be hard since I already got the job, right? NOT!
I've had 2 interviews with 2 recruiters from different districts and 2 interviews with 2 managers from different stores. Great interviews, btw.
And still they don't call me. The guy from MN said he had a trip coming up so he was going to make a decision NEXT week. UGH!!
I don't think they believe me when I say I'm ready to go and I'll go ANYWHERE.
I DONT CARE! I'm just fed up with the valley and my current manager who doesn't let me do my job and has no desire to teach me what he's supposed to.

*breath, breath* Sorry. Wao! That was a lot!
Ummm... no one here works with FedEx, right? Shhh!!!
