I'm mad at the world because I didn't get a SNUGGIE for Christmas!!. And I didn't even want one until I found out it seems everyone else on OLS got one!

Was laying on the couch before dinner and freezing my azz off..thought to myself a Snuggie would be just the ticket right about now.

I bought some of the parrots food December 27, thinking well it will ship the 28th and still should be here before New Years eve, it normally only takes a couple days. Apparently UPS didn't feel like working much last week. It didn't move from shortly after midnight the 29th it sat there. I thought ok well they won't work New Years eve or day so it will be here Monday, yeah right.

I hear ya on the UPS thing. I ordered some stuff on Amazon Dec. 26. Got the emails that they were shipped on the 27th and By tracking, I have two boxes sitting at my local UPS station (scanned in) on Dec. 30, in the wee early hours of the morning. Still don't have them.
Today, one shows still sitting there and one shows on its way to being delivered. I think they got lazy over the holidays.

so disapointed
My dh and I work at the same place. Our corporate office was running a contest based on sales, those who exceeded their goal got an entry based on every percent over goal. The prize was a trip to hawaii for valentines day. DH closed a huge deal and he had 2/3rds of the entries. They chose the winners and no one from our location won, and DH was not even on the list for some reason his sale was not included for entries... i guess they are looking into it, but it sucks. Would have been nice to go to hawaii

Seriously? I can only dumb down my explanation so much before it gets to the point where I'm not even explaining anything to you any more. And when you keep cutting me off with "yeah, okay," then doing the thing I just explained NOT to do, it's no wonder that I want to stop talking altogether.

Secondly, I see that you're asking how to cheat the system. I know those questions; I've heard them from other people who try to cheat the system. If you're a little more responsible and try to turn things in on time, you wouldn't have to cheat anything!

Sorry! It seems that all the stupid came out today.

I am waiting on an Ipod touch that was shipped UPS ground on Wednesday from California. The webside said it was re-routed/delayed or something. Won't get it until Tuesday. SIX DAYS? What the hell? USPS would have been faster.

A motorcycle came flying around the bend off the narrow county road leading to my private lane. He was going so fast he crossed into my lane and almost hit me head on! I jerked to the right and went off scraping the bottom on my Mini Cooper! Yet the ass turned around and followed me getting along side yelling I almost hit him! I'm not feeling good today so no fear and told the dufus to pull over. He took off flipping me off. Seems the idiot virus hit full force today.

I bought a snuggle for myself one or two years ago. I used it once and I don't like it. If you want one PM me with your address. When I'm back from the Bahamas I will be more then happy to send you mine but you'll have to wash it since its been in my closet. It's brand new.

I will not cater to your ego, and don't try to make me feel guilty. You know what they say: If you can't handle the heat.... It's just ridiculous how you try to make people feel bad because they have a different opinion.
