Beware, rant ahead…

I am a day late with my Tuesday Chatter because I spent yesterday trying to put out fires, not literal fires metaphorical ones. It got my Yankee Irish in high gear then I didn’t have any brainpower left to post anything.

I don’t understand why people get so very upset over things that with a little conversation and some compromise can be fixed.  I guess it is the word compromise that is the problem. In this instance, no one wants to compromise everyone wants it their way 100% refusing to discuss it in an adult way. Oh, they will “discuss” the issue loudly and with accusations, like children on a playground fighting over toys.

Anyway, I am trying to help find a middle ground that everyone can if not be whole-heartedly in agreement with at least accept what is decided and then act like well-behaved adults. The way some people are acting they need a sharp reprimand, their cell phones, computers and tech toys taken away then sent to their rooms.

End of rant!
I will chat again next week if I don’t explode before then.

Contentment…

Today is Tuesday and that means Chatter

When I was wondering what to chat about I got to thinking about being content.
The reason this is on my mind is because I was not content last night
and I woke up this morning in the same ugly mood.
This is not my usual state.
I was in this mood because I had an appointment this morning
that I did not want to go to.
Because of my snotty state I cancelled the appointment and stayed home.
Not smart.
Now I have to reschedule the appointment.
This has not improved my mood.
I was unhappy with what was and now unhappy with what will be.

Socrates said it best
“He who is not contented with what he has,
would not be contented with what he would like to have.”

Sometimes I just get so mad at myself!

R = rubberneck…

Have you ever been accused of being a R2016ubberneck?

I have.
By my father when I was a kid.
He made it sound like it was an awful thing,
something to be embarrassed about
if you are caught doing it.

Well, I looked it up in the dictionary.
It’s not so awful.
To R2016ubberneck
is to look about or stare inquisitively with great curiosity.
That’s not so bad.
R2016ubberneck also refers to tourists and sightseers.
Not a bad thing.
Then there is the definition;
R2016 ubberneckers are people who stare and gawk,
like spectators in a courtroom or at an accident.
That’s understandable but not nice.
And  R2016ubberneckers stare or gape,
especially in a naive or foolish manner.
I don’t like that at all.
But some days there is nothing else
to do so R2016ubbernecking happens.

Or you see something that is interesting,
curious, odd and you can’t help but
stare, gape, gawk,
R2016ubberneck.

That’s my post for the letter

K = kerflooey…

color-1229859_640

Have you had days when everything has gone
K2016erflooey?

I have but it has been awhile so I know
K2016erflooey day is due.

Most of my K2016erflooey days happen at work.
It usually starts first thing…even before I get to work.
I hit the snooze button too often and then I have to rush.
I hate rushed mornings!
Mornings are meant to be peaceful beginnings.

Then at work…it almost always starts with the computer.
Maybe you don’t know but computers are K2016erflooey generators.
Then someone calls with bad news that I have to relay;
something is out of stock, discontinued, the order
was not received or shipped to the wrong place.
Someone needs information that will take hours
to compile and they need it now.
Of course, that news makes the computer go K2016erflooey.
grrr
Then I forget to stop at the store for cat food on my way home
or I remember the cat food and forget the people food.
I get home and the elevator isn’t working
so it’s nine flights of stairs to walk up.
I want a relaxing bath and there is no hot water.
I get in my jammies and head for bed to find
that some cat has coughed up a hairball on my pillow.
Ready for sweet dreams and I can’t sleep because of all
the K2016erflooey that happened.

The next morning I go for a walk and
all the K2016erflooey stuff is forgotten.
All is right in my world again.

That’s my post for the letter
