Every once in a while I have to vent. Otherwise I will explode. So here goes. A Michigan gym is considering banning all men from seeing Muslim women in their "state of undress" during aerobics. Ie., showing their arms? You know, this just irritates me to no end. If it's that troubling to you. Stay home and do a Jane Fonda tape. How do most of us feel when we go to the gym and see everyone's got a better body than us? Life's just is not fair, get over it. I want to make everyone cater to me too, personally, I don't like seeing people in biking shorts, but life doesn't work that way. We have to get along. And the Constitution does not protect you against being offended. Heck, I'm offended daily. Does anyone care?
Next: Why is there no coffee line at Starbucks? Ie., just getting coffee. It would make those people a lot happier if they didn't have to stand behind a hazelnut/vanilla/marshmallow mocha frappuccino with an extra shot teenager. And it would actually make the line go faster because you have to stop and wait for the cashier to get the coffee. Just an idea. It's free Starbucks, run with it.
Okay, is anyone else completely ticked about the FEMA fraud? I mean, $2000 is nothing to people who truly need help and now it's getting reduced to $500 for future catastrophes because of several, selfish idiots. I'm telling you, they should give them one more gift, life on cell block D and three square meals a day. It takes a really disgusting individual to take advantage of that money. What happened to common decency?
And now we interrupt our ranting for a service announcement: Cheap shoes. I wish I couldn't tell the difference between cheap shoes and good shoes. I wish I had never tried on a decent pair, but girls, I'm here to tell you, you can't go back. So buy good shoes with the knowledge that Payless Shoe Source will never cut it again. And are you willing to make that kind of sacrifice? Zappos.com is fabulous. They ship lightning fast, they're the cheapest especially if you're not in CA and don't have to pay sales tax, and their service is excellent.
Got a rant to share? Have at it!
