“I found my inner bitch and ran with her.” ~ Courtney Love

*I went to the post office a couple of days ago and waited in a thirteen-person-long-line. When I got to the front and it was my turn, I went over to the next available person and the woman says to me (in a snotty, condescending tone with a big scowl on her face), “I’m not ready to wait on you yet.” Um. Ok. So I stood there feeling kind of like a scolded child who has been caught doing something wrong when my big offense was trying to mail a priority package and get robbed blind by the high cost of postage while doing so. I looked at this woman and said, “Well, what would you like me to do? Get back in line?” And the bitch says YES!!! OMG. So I turned and walked back to the front of the line to wait on her restocking the paper on her stamp machine. She took her sweet old time and I ended up being waited on by someone else which was probably just as well since she really needed the poker removed from her ass and I’m not a physician.

*Today, I was waiting to check out at our grocery store. Only one register was open (and HELLO, what’s up with that when I look around and see at least 10 employees avoiding work like the plague?). Suddenly, another register right beside the one I’m in opens up and the woman behind me, who had just gotten into line, (HUGE, along with her mother who was HUGE as well), practically knock me over trying to get into the new line. I blocked her with my cart and went, “WHOA, I think the next person in line should be waited on next,” and so the two customers ahead of me shifted lanes. This is how it should be. Huge mom and daughter started blabbing in Spanish and I’m sure they were talking about me but I don’t care. I’ll have to remember to bring my daughter along next time I shop in case I need an interpreter. I have a simple rule that if you act normal, I won’t bother you but if you act like an asshat I will have to point it out to you.

But the real kicker was seeing HUGE mom and daughter head to their car in the parking lot and guess what? These two clowns who had no trouble moving around in the grocery store and practically flattening me like a pancake were parked in a handicap spot and sure enough they had a handicap tag hanging from the mirror in their Lexus. WTF? Seriously, WTF? Wonder what their handicap was. Self-importance? Rudeness? Using food stamps to purchase things at the grocery store but having enough money to drive a Lexus? The whole thing would be laughable if it wasn’t so sad. My faith in humanity is dwindling by the minute.

*I am sick of celebrities who think we care who they are voting for in the upcoming election. Sorry Lindsay Lohan, George Clooney, David Letterman, and Elizabeth Hasselbeck but what makes you think that the public cares ONE iota who you support? You‘re entertainers, not rocket scientists and as such you ought to stick with what you know best and not try to influence people WHO HAVE THEIR OWN BRAINS AND CAN THINK FOR THEMSELVES!

*Casey Anthony. You are a piece of crap liar. Seeing you wear oversized sunglasses while you are surrounded by body guards as you are once again being bailed out of jail(and loving every minute of attention you are getting) makes me want to climb through the television screen and beat the crap out of you. Who do you think you are? Britney Spears? Newsflash: you‘re a criminal not a movie star. By the way, WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR DAUGHER? Shall we all go to Disney again and check out the teacup ride to see if she’s spinning in a cup just waiting for you to come get her because, you know, that’s a possibility according to the way you think. Or maybe she’s on the moon because she stood outside once and looked up at the stars. Shall we charter a space ship or something and check it out because I think I’m onto something here. HATE HER!

*Perpetual victims. Oh dear God. Get a backbone already and stop with all the boo hooing. I’m sick of it!

*Blogs that suddenly go private because of blog dramas and if you haven’t commented there ever they refuse to let you read anymore even if you’ve been a loyal reader forever.

*Helicopter sport moms who sit in the stands and cheer when the other team makes a mistake! Get a life ladies. If they gave out obnoxious awards these ladies would be hands-down winners.

*The “fuel recovery charges” that I am seeing on certain bills lately (Allied Waste Services and Lawn Doctor, I am talking to YOU). I would really like to send out invoices to everyone to try and recoup the extra money I have to spend on gas to get places but guess what? I can’t. But it seems that certain businesses think that we should pay for our own increased personal fuel charges and theirs, too. Must be nice. For them.

*Our On Demand from Comcast did not work for an entire week and so I called Comcast and asked them what the problem was and they told me that it was a county wide problem and that they did not know when it would be fixed but that they were “working on it.” I then asked if I would be reimbursed for the time it was not working and was told NO, because I got On Demand for free and I told the woman that I most certainly did not get it for free if I got billed $150/month for it and she kept insisting it was a free service. I’m sorry, but $150/month is NOT FREE and again, no amount of her telling me it’s free will make it the truth. It’s included in the package I PAY FOR so IT IS NOT FREE.

*The shrinking of 1/2 gallons of ice cream to 1.75 QT and remaining the same price. Ditto for cereals and other items (can we talk about concentrated laundry detergents???) We continue to get less for more or the same and nobody gives a damn.

*Feeling panicked about not having gas for our cars. It’s a serious problem where I live. 9 out of 10 gas stations have no fuel whatsoever, those that do sport lines 20 cars or more deep. Let me say this again, it is an exercise to find gas for our cars where I live and when we are lucky enough to find some, we get hit by greedy price gougers. Way to kick everyone when they‘re down, losers. I’m hoping karma’s a bitch for those scumbags.

Whew. That feels good. I think I was born to bitch. Too bad I can’t get paid for it!

    • Sorry sweetie if what I am about to say sounds rude maybe you did not mean for some of the stereotypical ideas on  behavior of minorities to come out in your writing, But it was just you wanting to be a bitch you did a good job.Obviously you know enough Spanish to know they were “Spanish” speakers.  Could it HUGE mom and daughter be they were just as ticket off about the slow check out, that you were just adding to that, and oh did you see them pay w/ food stamps? or did you make assumptions??? Because you know what they say about people who do that.

    • Actually IMISSTX, I don’t think you‘re rude, just passive aggressive.  You know what tipped me off?  The “sweetie” you used when you referred to me.  Also, your little “assumption” remark at the end tipped me off as well (wow, I’m kind of observant, aren’t I????)  Someone who makes a comment like you just made doesn’t think I’m sweet, so why bother pretending?  Why say you‘re sorry you‘re being rude when you‘re not sorry in the least?  

      And by the by, I did see them pay with food stamps or I wouldn’t have written that.  I wasn’t stereotyping, I was REPORTING WHAT I SAW.  Also, HUGE mom and daughter had JUST gotten in line behind me when the new line opened up so they couldn’t have been as “ticked” as those of us who were waiting MUCH LONGER.  Try reading what I actually wrote.

      Also, wasn’t the purpose of bitch day to BITCH?  That was my understanding of the exercise and there were no limits or rules as far as I know.  Were you appointed to go around and make sure the bitching was up to your standards because I must have missed the memo if you were.

      I’d like to add to my bitch day that I can’t stand commenters who pretend they are above being judgmental but leave passive aggressive comments that prove what frauds they are!

    • Ladies, maybe that is my Bitch, I am married to a hipanic  I speack Spanish, and I am white, and I have so often been told while speaking to my mother in laww in a store,we are in America Speak English. So maybe both of you should be a little more sensitive as well and I am far from being passive aggressive, I just can’t stand anyone being judgemental, and know where in your blog did you say you saw them pay with food stamps. Nor, was am I sorry for asking you to clarify what you said, climb off your broom long enough to realize that while I know it was a day for you to bitch it still could have sounded offensive to others.

    • really I am being jugemental, maybe you should have read, I asked her to clarify what she said and I am very good at reading criticly or I would not have graduated w/ a masters in education and yes if they had been german japanese or speacking gaelic I still would have them ask to clarify themseleves. Also, just buy what your saying about me, aren’t you I don’t know being that way as well. you assumed I was being sensitive to my situation no I have empathy for anyone living in america with people wha make assumptions about others. Did any of you ladies think that in today’s downsizing the mother or father might have had a well paying job and was fired or layed off. Now whose being judgemental??? I will unsub, since both seem to feel you are so much wiser than I. Please be aware I am not being sarcastic in this post I am just being honest.+

    • I can bitch with the best of them-and do! Starsgoblue-keep on bitching. There are a lot of things to bitch about. I personally got a good laugh out of your grocery store rant.

      I was in Costco standing facing the refrigerated vegetable section looking at the broccoli. Mind you, I didn’t have a cart. A woman approached me from my right with a cart and said, “excuse me!“. She wanted to direct her cart in between me and the vegetables when there was PLENTY of room to navigate her fat ass around me. GO AROUND BITCH is what I wanted to say, but, of course, I was too polite (and honestly stunned) so I moved back. Plus, who says you can park your cart in the middle of the aisle, leave it unattended and then give me a nasty look when I move it so I can get by??

      Keep bitching, my friend!

    • In my rant I have spelled a few things wrong, and i admit I am sensitive to the needs of all who immigrate here to America. I am also an ESOL teacher and have listened to many stories about others. Now here let me ask you this does your speaking more than one language and all your sensitivity traing give you the right to be judgemental? And as I said when I answered you both that day it was my bitch fior that day.

    • I’m glad you are so bemused that only truly answers my question. that you beliieve you are so far above, you truly are better than those of us who question people who judge people by the language they speak or the cars they drive. Are you sure your ESP is that great, you know how ever one feels by the post on a web site. To bad it’s ESP and not empathy. To bad you didn’t learn that when you took so many diversity classes, that you can point out to us who are by the way you speak so in need for you to tell us what we need to learn in our lives. Maybe you need a few more classes. I at least know who and what I am faults and all, I would not atempt to pass judgement on the state of their emotional healthy unless i met and knew them. This truly has been enlightening.

    • Ladies..There is nothing wrong with bitching..we all do that from time to time..Sometimes it’s not how you say things..but what you say...and this is a peaceful site..created by a peaceful, beautifully spirited woman, who I am sure would not like to see the words written on here...

      The peace patrol came in and tried to diffuse the situation, yet no one paid attention..Why must we fight like this...How is this productive in uplifting and empowering each other, which by the way is what this particular site is all about...

      Further, I would like to ask you, on behalf of the site owner, that you refrain for speaking to each other in this manner. If we cannot all learn to get along, how are we supposed to learn and empower each other?..One mistaken word is all it takes to create anarchy so we as 40 something adults should know by now how to approach certain situations, with grace and dignity...Thanks

      And the motto I am famous for sharing on this site is something I will share with you...“Why can’t we all play in the sandbox without throwing sand in each other’s face?”

    • well said Denise.

      And even if it is ‘bitch’ day, there is never any reason to use it to cut down others. You never know who is reading and who they are.  

      You never what lives the person leads at home and what their trials are.

      Be good to each other.

    • I am not angry anymore nor did I mean to attack her, more to defend myself. Could it be she did not think I would find offense in what she wrote, yet i felt she was placing her self above me by telling me what she precieved as my faults. please some if these things were said to you how would you feel.

    • Sometimes people are not aware of what they are saying/ typing when they are in ‘bitch’ mode. It takes getting over it, calming down, to realize what might have been said was indeed hurtful and demeaning and of course we all know that these things can NEVER be taken back..Remember the saying ‘Sticks and Stones may break my bones but names could never hurt me?’ I beg to differ...‘Words can KILL‘..self-esteems get ruined everyday because of name calling and teasing...

    • Stars,, I read all of these posts and I really think that its your preception and expectations, not what people are doing around you but what your already expecting.

      If you look for the worst you will find it... Look for the good.... and you will find it.

      Maybe its not the people around you so much as its your expectations.

      Did you ever think how your precieved ?  Maybe those you think are not doing or acting right, thinks the same of you...  

      If a person is expecting or looking for the worst in you.. .. the worst will most surely be found... if someone looks objectively and for the good in someone by looking deeper, they surely will find the good in that person.

      Its a matter of how you view society.  I see the bad everyday of my life, but I look for and find the good.

    • Ladies..And I do mean "Ladies" Everything in this blog was said by someone who apparently was agitated and stressed out..IMHO..Nothing said was directed at or to any one individual.. With all the racist issues there are these days, people are more sensitive and others are more aggressive..Either way it is a heartfelt issue..As adults I believe it is expected of us to at least acknowledge this. We also jump on that all time favorite of I have the right to... Well we all have the same rights and no one is looking to take those rights from anyone..It's just a common courtesy to be guarded of our words..Taking in to consideration that this is an open forum...and that in its self should make us realize that all people, of all walks of life read what we have written..And regardless of your intent weather it is meant to be derogatory or just a personal rant..Understand you will receive unpleasant feedback, and your hostilities can harbor anger and resentment by others..Being we are creatures of habit ...we protect those who we love and will fight to preserve the things we believe in..  We all just went through a similar situation during the Presidential election..Things were said and feelings were hurt..People became angry at those who just days before were laughing and caring on as friends..I was guilty of being one of those over opinionated people who was exercising my "rights" at the expense of people I had just days before called friend..  Having a "Bitch Session" is sometimes very therapeutic.. But keep in mind and be careful of your words..There are other ways to express our displeasure than racial comments or how Large or Skinny someone is..Keep it generic and you can still get it off your chest..And... because we have "ALL" experienced similar situations..We can feel you without all the personal attacks. I have tried to do this while writing this Blog...I am not attacking you or minimizing your frustration..I am just trying to redirect the issue..And hope that somehow we can all walk away from this one before it gets to the point of Yana and her team having to reprimand us..Or..Worse having to check up on us like a bunch of children calling out and baiting one another...I think the goal and soul purpose of this site is to be supportive and helpful to all women... To be there for each one of us...As one of my friends puts it so well..Let's play in the sand box without throwing sand..(I hope that was a correct quote)   =) with warm Love and Friendship.. Kat
