Venting on Air Travel

“Seriously? 7”

We all know that life is not fair and mean people suck. For those of you who have a sense of justice, it can be tough to hold your tongue when you see things that are just not right. In order to keep the peace, it is much better to just let it go. However, if you are like us, it will make you feel a LOT better if you get it off your chest and vent. This is where you can do that. Here are some examples for today.

PEOPLE SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO TAKE AND PASS A COURSE ON PROPER AIR TRAVEL BEHAVIOR BEFORE BEING ALLOWED TO BOARD A PLANE

The first lesson of the course should be a lesson in following rules.

No one is exempt from the simple rules that exist for the safety of every traveler. You MUST fasten your seat belt. I don’t want your 200-pound body landing on top of me if we hit major turbulence.

You MUST turn off your electronics, raise your seat-back, and give up your drink when the flight attendant tells you to. It’s not fair that the other 400+ passengers all have to stop playing Candy Crush, sit upright, and lose the last sips of their beverage while you continue to break the rule. You are not special. On an airplane, you are just a passenger like everyone else. Continue reading

Venting on Forgiveness

There is much to be said about forgiveness. We struggled as to what page of our self-help and positivity site the topic should occupy. Is forgiving people a depression hack? Is it good advice? Both of those pages would be appropriate, since it is important to your mental health to let go of negativity; however, after much consideration, it seems as though the topic of forgiveness fits best on our Venting page. Surprised?  Don’t be. Read on and you will understand. Continue reading

Venting on Rude Texting & Texting for Cowards

“Seriously? 6”

We all know that life is not fair and mean people suck. For those of you who have a sense of justice, it can be tough to hold your tongue when you see things that are just not right. In order to keep the peace, it is much better to just let it go. However, if you are like us, it will make you feel a LOT better if you get it off your chest and vent. This is where you can do that. Here are some examples for today.

Texting is fabulous in so many ways. However, it is used and abused by rude people and cowards everywhere. There is such a thing as text etiquette. LOOK IT UP . . . LEARN IT & FOLLOW IT!

Do not have a texting conversation while you are having an in-person conversation with someone else face to face, especially while you are visiting in their home or in a restaurant. RUDE, RUDE, RUDE! PUT THE PHONE AWAY & BE PRESENT!

Texting is not warm & fuzzy. CALL IF YOU CARE!

Texting is an easy way to be sarcastic or passive-aggressive. Don’t try to hide your nastiness behind a text. Everyone can see right through it. JUST BE NICE!

Texting is not the way to communicate when you have not talked to someone in a long time. If you truly miss someone, call them up. A call says you care. An “I miss you” text says YOU ARE NOT WORTH MY TIME.

Texting is the coward’s way out when responding to a touchy situation that catches you off guard or makes you feel vulnerable. GROW UP & FACE YOUR ISSUES!

Texting every little thing that happens, the moment it happens is not living life, it is reporting life. Once again, BE PRESENT!

RUDE CARTOONS ARE NOT FUNNY, THEY ARE RUDE

How is it funny that the cute little cartoon character is burping and farting on his little cartoon friends? THAT’S RUDE BEHAVIOR

What is comical about green vomit purposely spewed onto the little cartoon schoolgirl? THAT’S GROSS

Someone please tell us how an obese, dumb-as-a-brick, deadbeat father-figure making poor decisions is funny? THAT’S IGNORANT

While we are on the subject . . . How is it funny that the mouse is beating the crap out of the cat, or the road runner is repeatedly killing the coyote? THAT’S MEAN

RUDE HUMOR . . . SOME OF US JUST DON’T GET IT

 

SCAM LIKELY

THERE ARE RULES ABOUT PARKING THAT ARE NOT HARD TO UNDERSTAND

It is against the law to park in a handicapped parking space if you are not handicapped.

There is a reason that the law exists and there is a $500 fine (in TX) if you break it.

Handicapped people need to use the designated handicapped parking spaces.

Lazy people do not need to use the designated handicapped parking spaces. Continue reading
