Interrupting Waiters

November 15, 2007

Now for an exquisite, tableclothed edition of…


Yeah, it’s right there in the title. Interrupting waiters. We all know it’s annoying when you go to a restaurant, and the waiter seems to disappear for a while and you’re hungry and want to order. Well, the opposite is also really irritating. Waiters who don’t leave you the hell alone!

Celebrity News

October 2, 2007

And now, for an overhyped, scandalous edition of…


This time? It’s these people who actually follow celebrity news. People who actually care what’s going on in celebrity lives. They read every magazine about the sordid affairs, watch every gossip show, and chat about it with their vacuous friends as if Angelina Jolie looking pregnant had any relevance to the world.

iPod for the Lose

March 4, 2007

And now, for a handheld musical edition of…


I think it’s obvious at this point. iPods suck. Granted, I don’t have one. I’ve never really used one. I’m sure they work just fine. So what am I bitching about if I don’t even have one? Simple. It’s the hype around them and the idea that they’re somehow so special that it seems everything needs to be about them.

Lost Six Days!

January 14, 2007

And now, for a furious, data-loss induced edition of…


I refer to web host, UN Site Solutions. They don’t host this site, but they host NYRA. You know, it’s always a damn problem with them! We keep having major server issues, lots and lots of downtime, and occasional lost data. Then today I get on to find we lost EVERYTHING since January 8!

They don’t back things up as often as they should. This is not acceptable! We lost important e-mails. Important message board posts. Important member information. Everything!

Not to mention they are really fussy about CPU usage crap that other hosts don’t care about. It’s irritating as all hell.

Plus, lately we’ve been having a problem of threads disappearing on the NYRA forums. No idea why. None of our tech staff knows why. UNSS certainly doesn’t know why. Despicable.

And they tend to lock IPs out of being able to access their hosted sites, for no reason.

Just sick of it. We pay them ridiculous amounts of money to host us, and they do this crap all the time. Sad thing is, they’re still better than the host we had before.

Stroke of Midnight

December 31, 2006

And now, for an annual, champagne-soaked edition of…


So today is New Year’s Eve. It is the night people around the world watch the clock and when it strikes midnight, they cheer, get drunk, and try to sing Auld Lang Syne. Well, except for some people. People who irritate me to no end. So who sucks today? People who don’t stay up until midnight tonight.

And they get all cocky about it. “Oh, I didn’t want to do that. I was tired. I don’t need to do that. I’m better than you.” Whatever, loser.

So stay up tonight and watch the clock strike twelve. I command you! :doitnow:

On another note, I did it! I have made an entry every day of December now, as I promised. Thank God for Christmas. It has lots of stuff worth an entry. If I were trying to do this in like September or something, it would be much harder. Now I’m worried I won’t have much to rant about next December. Shouldn’t worry, though. There’s always something.

Oh, and go, Detroit Lions, for humiliating the Dallas Cowboys at home today. 😀

Coffee Please?

December 29, 2006

Now for a caffeinated, customer service lacking edition of…


Office Depot. They seriously suck.

So, at work, we’ve got this little single serve coffee machine with a bunch of little cups of coffee and tea that go into it. This one company supplied it for us, and, honestly, their service sucked ass. As does the coffee itself, but it’s all we’ve got. They got orders wrong. Orders got delayed. Major mess.

So then they get bought out by Office Depot.

And, if you can believe it, they are even WORSE!

The C Word

December 14, 2006

And now, for a festive, non-denominational session of…


People who are afraid to say the word “Christmas”. As if the political correctness gods will smite them if they do. That’s not all. On the other end of the spectrum are the asshats who throw a fit if you say anything other than Christmas.

Music Elitists

November 20, 2006

And now, for a musically stifling session of…


Here’s yet another pack of society’s dregs. People who, for whatever dumbass reason, will strictly limit themselves to liking or even listening to a specific kind of music. There’s a bunch of these for every imaginable genre. They only listen to Baroque period classical. Maybe they refuse to listen to anything other than Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. For some, if it was made before 1997, it sucked. There are others who will only listen to The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. Perhaps some denounce anything that isn’t 1980’s techno.

Whatever. You get the point (if your IQ is at least in the double digits, which is doubtful).

Plain Text Please

October 20, 2006

And now, for a double spacing, format-copying edition of…


Wysiwyg editors. You know, I can’t believe a word, even if just an acronym, with two W’s and two Y’s and fun as hell to say could stand for something so lame. What You See Is What You Get! Well, you know what? Maybe I don’t like what I see. I’d like to format it myself. I don’t care if you think I’m making it harder on myself. I find it easier. Grant me that.

Uh oh. Not always an option.

Right Doesn’t Make Right

September 6, 2006

And now, for a high and mighty, hawkish session of…


You know what I’m sick of? Conservative bloggers. Liberal bloggers suck, too, but I feel like boring into the right wingers for the moment. Aw, hell, all bloggers suck for that matter. But beside the point. 😉

Every once in a while I surf through some blogrolls to see what other random jerks with internet connections are saying. Conservative bloggers are a special breed, I must say. A hell of a lot of them, but special nonetheless. They have a lot of basic characteristics.
