Rants...raves ...and pet peves

WHERE DO I START...ON A SITE WHERE FOLKS ARE SO NICE THIS ONE MAY NOT FLY...BUT I'LL THROW IT ONTO THE WALL ANYHOW .... HERE GOES
1. People who buy water in bottles when they can turn on a tap and get perfectly fine water to drink...if the taste is off buy a brita or something...do they not realize how much water is wasted bottling water...aside from the waste of money(it costs more than gasoline in some places)the water supply is being deleted more rapidly than if they turned on the tap!
2. People who buy a big mack combo with a diet soda.
3. People that allow the bad actions of a few influene their own lives negatively

I got more but i'd like to leave room for others....CHEERS

I hate when people drive slow in the left lane and won't get over for faster traffic.

Really? I don't see anything wrong with the world. And if we get another republican president, things will only get better. (Especially if he's religious).

I hate it when people in the grocery store park their carts side by side in the isle and just stand there and talk. I've been known to be rude on those occasions.

I get really peeved when people grump about having no money, but when they are offered a job they turn it down because "It doesn't pay enough to be worth it". ........apparently welfare does...........

Now this next statement does NOT apply to any of the fine people here....that said.....WATCH OUT FOR VW JETTAS....I don't know what it is with these cars but they generally seem to attract inattentive pre-occupied people....be extra careful when they are near!!!!!!! Just my experience!

Dangerous driving

I know I'm in the wrong here ... but here goes.....I used to commute into T.O. on a major 400 series freeway up here in Canuck land....the road turned into more of a parking lot at some points than an expressway...so I used to take to the shoulder jumping on ramp medians and scooting up and back into traffic....one day I had some BUTTHEAD in his truck pulling off onto the paved shoulder to block me....and I mean he was pulling right over...I BARELY MADE IT BY ALIVE....A couple years later I'm partying with some new friends and relayed my story.....GUESS what....IT WAS HIM....Guess what else.....HE RIDES BIKES.....WE BOTH REALIZED OUR MISTAKES AND CONTINUED PARTYING(HARD I MUST SAY)....SMALL WORLD EH!!!!!

RAVE......The wife and i are conservation minded Canuks.......heres why.....we used to drink beer out of bottles.....reusable right....better than cans .....right.....perhaps!! i used to handle 200 bottles a month(actual number is higher but I'm keeping' it friendly) i would make at least 4 trips a month to the in and out store .....i would have to handle each bottle 7 times round trip(1 into car 2 into house 3 into fridge....etc)now ...by using the keg system I make 1 or 2 trips a month(again the actual #may be higher I'm keepin' it friendly) we do use water to clean the keg each time...but we are saving big on all the other fronts..and no stinkin' bottles to pick up.......only a couple 'o glasses...CHEERS...look at kegworks.com for systems....if you like!

What about when people don't put there shopping carts in the designated spots in parking lots, so that when a good wind comes it blows the cart into your car, or makes it dificult to park cause there in the empty parking spaces.

I hate it when someone who really deserves to get their butt beat to a pulp, doesn't because while having no manners isn't a crime, beating someone's butt to a pulp is!

I hate the fact that most of our elected leaders swear to uphold the US Constitution and spend the next two/four/six years working to undermine the protections it affords us.

I hate the fact that the local, state and federal governments all believe that I now work for them...isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

I also hate it when those pesky pedestrians won't move to the grass when I am trying to use the sidewalk to scoot around the cars parked in the road during rush hour!
