Welcome to the anger hate machine!
Seems like everybody these days has a blog page, or their own little place in cyber space to let off some steam. This one is mine. Now I have been known to have a short fuse at times. I can be a bit of a jerk, and get bent out of shape, as I'm sure we all do. Here are some of the things that stupid, self centered people do that really push the hell outta my buttons, forcing me to the edge of insanity where I have no choice, but to. Sorry I started rambling for a moment there, it won't happen again.
Alright let's start with traffic, and the idiots who find their way into the massive mess of chaos turning it into a more hectic journey then it needs to be. Living in south Florida we get our share of tourists down here, and some of the dumbest people from the northern states seem to find their way here every year. You know, the people that wait till the last minute to get into a turning lane to turn left, or just make the turn from the right hand lane anyway forcing the traffic in the other lane to a screeching halt. Then there are the people that have no idea their car is even equipped with a turn signal to begin with. My favorite are the people that are in a hurry to cut you off from a side road only to drive 10-15 mph under the speed limit once they are in front of you. Remember those sound effect devices for cars that made sounds like machine guns, or a laser gun… to bad they don't have one that really works. Take someone who does not know where they are going, and is an idiot to begin with, and you have a recipe for a disaster. Road rage is a problem in this country, but I am betting if they started making people take an I.Q. test to get their drivers’ license it would eliminate most of the problem by eliminating the idiots that are the cause of it in the first place.
Anger Management is importannt
Mentally picture yourself near a stream. Birds are chirping in the crisp, cool mountain air.
Nothing can bother you here. No one knows this secret place.
You are in total seclusion from that place called the "world."
The soothing sound of a gentle waterfall fills the air with a cascade of serenity.
The water is so clear that you can easily make out the face of the person whose head you are holding under the water.
There now.......feeling better?
I don’t know about you, but my alarm clock really pisses me off when it goes off early in the morning. There is only one reason that it is going off. It is time to go to work again. I curse it, smack the snooze button down, and drift back to never, never land again. Just as I am getting to the good part of the fantasy that my sub-conscious mind has created, and forced me to take part in, such as about to be rewarded by the girl I just saved from the monster, you guessed it, beep, beep, beep… damn it I was just about to get some. My sub-conscious mind knew it was time for the alarm to go off again, and timed it that way.
So against my wishes to go back to sleep I get up to face another day at work. I work in a grocery store in Florida. A high end one with customers that are snobby to begin with. Pretty much everyday there is a major dilemma to deal with, like being out of lemon bars. Some lady freaked out, oh my god, how can you be out of lemon bars! I am having a tea party, and have to have them.
Hurricane Charlie did quite a bit of damage to Florida, although I had fun playing outside when it came through. Not too often you can stand outside, and watch huge trees bend, and sway so much they break off at the top. You had to be ready to move so you didn’t get a 12 ft section of tree crashing on you at 80+ mph. The beach was fun too, waves crashing on shore like you never seen before, the wind blowing so hard you could hardly stand up, and the sand, and rain stinging your face as it hit you horizontally. Not something sane people do, but being a loser I aint exactly sane now am I? The element of danger made it more fun. Anyways, Charlie kicked some butt in Florida; the Tsunamis in Asia wiped out whole villages, and killed hundreds of thousands of people, but that is nothing compared to that stupid bitch not having lemon bars for her damn tea party. People like that piss me off too.
Work itself sucks too from the job interview, until the day you retire. Like I say in my total losers guide to finance, and investing, employers pay you just enough not to quit, and employees work just hard enough not to get fired. Nobody gets up every morning, and says, woo hoo, I get to go to work again today.
Let’s face it, what is a job interview but convincing a slave owner, manager, why you would make a good slave. That may be a bad analogy since nobody is forcing you to work. When faced with the alternate option of living in the woods, and eating garbage out of a dumpster it is something you have to do.
Put up with the daily grind. Spend less then you earn, and invest the difference is one way out of the boring life of daily labor. Starting a business is another. Starting an internet business is the least expensive. One way to do it is setting up shop with Cafepress. You can create your own logo, or saying, and put it on one of 70 different items, such as t-shirts, caps, and coffee cups. Although it is not technically your own business, you design the image, and you decide the price. There is a minimum price to charge to cover the cost of Cafepress, as they take care of everything, receiving orders, billing, and shipping. Everything over that price is your profit. Not as good as your own business, but at least you are trying to better yourself.
This is our store at Cafepress,losersworld is our store id, if you would be so kind as to put it into the referred by box should you open your own store. click here to visit it.
