I told a woman I work with that if her problem starts with "I am" then
it is her problem not mine. For example she complains that she can't
sleep because she's pregnant. That's an "I am" problem which means it
is her problem not the rest of the world. In other words, she needs to
quit acting like the world is out to get her because she decided to
get pregnant. I have no patience for that "the world is out to get me"
mentality. If you have a problem that starts with "I am" you can
either change it or deal with it. Either way, the reason it is a
problem is because YOU let it be. Not because the rest of the world
causes it to be.

Just because your child makes strait A's doesn't mean every child
will. Bringing home lower grades also doesn't mean the child is stupid
or lazy. Also, every child is different and learns in their own way.
This goes for disciplen as well. Spanking does not work on every
child. Neither does time out. A parent should know what works best for
their child and use it. The rest of the world should but out. I mean
seriously, I get being upset if nothing is being done to make a child
behave but if the child acts up and the parent threatening no TV when
they get home makes the child behave then who cares. Just bacause that
is not how you would handle it doesn't mean its wrong.

So I'm driving to work today and see a guy driving in the center turn
lane for several blocks. At work, I mentioned it to one of my
coworkers and we started talking about it. One of them said something
about "idiots" (as they put it) who were "too stupid" to turn into the
turn lane so they could work their way into a regular lane when
turning left across a busy road. Technicaly you aren't allowed to do
that either. Do people really not understand the meaning of "turn
lane"? I guess it's kinda like the "left lane for passing only" signs.
People take them to mean what ever they want them to mean and then
call other people idiots for actually obeying the signs.

I don't care if you celebrate or not. I don't care what you believe.
It is still Christmas time no matter if you believe in what it stands
for or not. Christmas is still a Nationally reconized holliday no
matter what you believe. So no, I won't say "happy holidays" or "Merry
Xmas". It is Christmas time and I will wish you a Merry Christmas.

Why is it that thefts go up so much this time of year and on such
rediculous items. I was reading a list of top things that are being
stolen this season and it was rediculous. Prime cuts of meat, the new
rocking Elmo, designer clothes, and electric razors were just a few
of the top items. I get that times are hard and people are really
strugling to jus get by and you know if you got cought stealling bread
and peanut butter or some cheap hamburger meat I might feel sorry for
you but prime cuts of meat and designer clothes? People need to learn
to live within their means. Also, am I the only one that sees a
conection between todays bratty kids who have no manners and think the
world owes them something and the increase in thefts of toys like
rocking Elmo? I mean I get that its an awsome toy but its expensive
and my nephew wants it but he's not going to get it and I promise his
world will not end because he doesn't get every last thing he wants. I
remimber when I was a kid at Christmas time and while I know for a
fact that I didn't get every thing I asked for the only thing I ever
remiember not getting was a guitar, which - did eventually get. I'm
sure there were some things that at the time I thought I couldn't live
without but I can't remimber them now and I always knew I was loved no
matter how much or little I got.

I was reading an article about all these places baning kids or doing
"baby hour" and then some of the comments about it as well. I don`t
have kids but I love them and really even when they get a little loud
in places I dont usually mind. There are places and times that it is
just plain rude to let it continue and the age of the child has a lot
to do with how much I`m willing to tolerate. Last weekend we went out
to eat and there was a child about 2 years old that was just sitting
there screaming as loud as she could. The mom sat there ignoring her
like it was perfectly normal for several minuets untill someone made a
comment about how annoying that must be if she did it all the time and
the mom "you get used to it". Finally the manager came by and asked
her to please quiet the child down at which point she siad something
about there being nothing she could do. Then the dad arrived and after
trying to calm the chiland failing he took her ouside. It wasent two
minutes before they were back inside ant the child had the dads
capplaying with it with a big smile and was very wll behaved the rest
of their meal. I dont think kids should be banned but I do think they
should be kicked out if they cant behave.

I bought a movie from Target that didn't work and had to fight to get
a new one at no cost to me because it was on sale when I bought it and
when I returned it the sale was over. That's supposed to be the policy
but there is no way I'm paying an extra $5 for a movie just because it
didn't work the first time I bought it. I don't buy movies at Target
anymore because of their return policy. As much as I understand the
need for a strict policy on games and dvds, I also refuse to continue
to be cheated (or attempted to be cheated) by a super strict policy. I
have bought 3 dvds from Target (different locations) and all 3 of them
have had to be taken back and argued over. I now buy my dvds other
places but I still shop at Target from time to time because, in the
end, they did give me what I needed. Just like how I don't buy books
from Wal-Mart anymore. They are well known for having pages (sometimes
entire chapters) missing from their books. I don't know why, I've
never had this problem when buying books from anywhere else. There are
lots of stores I don't go to for some things but will for others. As
the saying goes, "nobody is perfect" including your favorite stores.

All this fuss over the name of ice cream? Okay some people need to get
a life. Then again, I'm one of those people that doesn't get get
offended easily even when someone calls me some stupid name that is
supposed to have me instantly upset and up in arms. Now the people
spreading that video on twitter and facebook of the 14 year old
girl...THAT is something to get upset about IMO.

I understand wanting to understand someone that you are doing business
with but where do people get off thinking they have the right to
criticize another customer for not speaking the same language as them
right at that moment. I'm not even talking about not understanding
English at all. I'm just talking about caring on a private
conversation with another person in a different language. News flash
people: English is NOT the only language out there. Do people
seriously expect people who come from another country to instantly
start speaking English and never speak their native language again?
That's really what it seems like sometimes. And what about people like
me who are trying to become bilingual? Am I not allowed to practice my
Spanish while at the grocery store? What happened to land of the free
and freedom of speech or maybe even just the golden rule?

Yesterday I was talking to a friend who has said for years that she
never wants kids. She said she hates motherís day because she always
gets asked when she plans on having kids and then told she isnít ďold
enoughĒ to know what she wants yet when she says ďneverĒ. Sheís 26
same as me. I started thinking about this and realized Iíve been asked
about if/when I plan on having kids as well as nobody says Iím not old
enough to know what I want when I say that I want to adopt. Iíve
wanted kids for as long as I can remember. I used to babysit all the
time and I would tell people that I loved kids and couldnít wait to
have some of my own. Even when I was in middle school and would tell
people that, nobody ever said I wasnít old enough to know what I
wanted. They told me I should wait, and one asked what I would do if I
couldnít have kids of my own which is when I said I would adopt and
wanted to adopt even if I did have my own kids. So, why do so many
people think a 26 year old isnít going to stick to a decision not to
have kids but a 12 year old will stick to a decision to have kids
and/or adopt?

Happy Easter. Have a fun, safe, and happy day.

Why do people say "my God" or "your God"? Does every person have a
different God? Or is it more like it's "my God" because I believe but
not "your God" because you don't believe? And then if you start to
believe He becomes "your God"? At least for as long as you continue to
believe I supose. I was always taught that God loves everyone even if
they don't believe in and/or accept him. Wouldn't that make him
everyone's God?

When I was a kid we sat indian style, our parents got told we acted
bad when we did, we had "indian gift exchanges", teachers had a
"Secret Santa" and in December we had Christmas break and usually we
had a Christmas play and Christmas party.

Now kids sit "criss cross applesauce", parents get told their kid was
"naughty" when they act up, they now have "White elephant gift
exchanges", the teachers have a "Secret Pal", they take "Winter break"
and you aren't allowed to call it a "Christmas Party" or a "Christmas
Play" (but the theme can be Christmas apparently).

It amazes me how some stores never change. I haven't shopped in Sears
in probably over a year because of the poor treatment I got (more then
once) in there, how I saw other people treated, and their general lack
of concern for the customers satisfaction. I wrote a letter to them
then telling them that I would no longer shop at their store and why.
They sent me coupons and I tore them up and threw them away. I
wouldn't even give them the satisfaction of having someone else use
their coupons I was that displeased with them. Recently I was given a
gift card to Sears as a gift and I decided that since it really
wouldn't cost me anything and they were having a sale that I would
give them a chance. I really couldn't recall exactly what they had
done to upset me in the first place anyway so I figured it was time to
try again. The gift card is now in pieces in my trash can because with
in moments of walking in they reminded me why I stopped shopping there
in the first place.
Add Sears to the VERY short list of places I flat out refuse to shop
from. I believe there is a total of 3 places on the list and one is a
fast food place.
