What's Your Beef Wednesday

Hopefully you guys know what these posts are all about by now. I rant, you rant. All is well with the world.

  • Two Mondays in one week. Since we had yesterday off for New Year's, it feels like Monday again. Don't you think?
  • Bars are full of asshats. I know that my ass looked good in that dress, but that doesn't give you the right to touch it. Or you either. Ever. Especially if we're not currently dating. So quit. And yes, you both deserved the slap in the face.
  • Christmas returns. It is damn near impossible to get any Christmas returns done the day after Christmas. Or the few days following really. All the stores decide to run 1/2 off sales to bring in business. Can't you wait a few days so that we can get a chance to return everything we don't want without having to fight a crowd?!
  • Ironing in a hurry. Why does it always happen that when I'm running late I need to iron? I throw my shirt on the ironing board. Flip it over to get the other side and realize that my shirt is now covered in cat hair! Thank you very much Holly and Margot for using the ironing board as your personal napping ground. I think you have cat beds for that purpose, no?
  • The coveted parking spot. Driving and driving my way through the parking garage at a local mall I see a sweet spot out of the corner of my eye. By the time I make it over there some new person just pulls into the garage and snags it. I've been looking for a spot for five minutes and you're just going to stroll in here and grab the best one in thirty seconds flat? Get out of the car so I can beat you up.
  • Drunken statements. Isn't it true that when you're drunk the truth often leaks out of your uncensored mouth? Don't tell me you like me and miss me one minute, and that you don't want a relationship the next but we can still "hang out from time to time". I think not. When did I ever say I wanted a relationship with you in the first place? And I'm tired of having these conversations via text messaging. I'm done with your games.
  • That my beefs get longer and longer as the list grows.
So tell me, what's your beef?

ooh - grabbing asses is never okay - (unless, of course, you're doing the grabbing) So true with drunken statements - I have had a few of those come my way in my time and it is never pretty the day after (or the day after that..) My beef? Read my blog.that should cover it...

Deutlich said...

Asshats that leave disturbing messages about masturbation on my voice mail @ work. I deal with children's mental health issues. 'Nuff said.

Bills. I hate bills.

Douchebags at bars that don't understand, "no." I, literally, had to spell it out for one guy the other night. Like, woah.

Going to work after a long vacation. Blech.

pessimisticredhead said...

This conundrum: one of my resolutions is to be healthier (i.e. diet) but you can't start your diet on New Years since it's a holiday, and so it starts today. BUT today is Wednesday, not Monday, and everyone knows you have to have one last weekend to eat anything that doesn't eat your first before you start your diet. So, do I keep eating like a suckling pig until Monday? Or buckle down now? I think we all know the answer.

Angela said...

Yowza! There are some pretty complicated beefs up in here this week!

Unfortunately, bars have been full of asshats since the beginning of time and probably will continue to be for many years to come--but good job standing up for yourself and your ass!!

pbandrazz said...

Christmas presents made entirely of chocolate. They are never gone by the time ol' resolution time comes round so you just have to finish them or throw them out or throw them at people. People's inability to clean out old food from the fridge (this applies to both roommates and coworkers).

Also, that no one grabbed my ass on NYE. Haha :)

legallyheidi.com said...

my beef? hahaha a best friend who stands you up labor day weekend because of a "car accident" and then three months later says she went a whole year without a car accident. She writes this...a day after standing me up.

I hate getting stood up - is it so hard to drop an im/phone call?? I mean honestly!!!

I hate liars. I hate drama queens. I hate being wronged. I hate looking like a damn fool. I hate when people are like "well how do you think i feel reading xyz on your blog..." YOU WERE THE ONE WHO STOOD ME UP JERK!

And i hate when i don't get caffeine till 2:30pm. And i hate working at the gym till close.

/end hates.

Happy hump day??? :) (p.s. I absolutely agree with all your beefs! Especially the parking garage one >:| bastards.)

Nilsa S. said...

Two Mondays in one week? I prefer to see it as TWO FRIDAYS IN ONE WEEK. Hellzyeah!

My beef: Out of state drivers who feel it's ok to drive 60 in the fast line. Here in Chicago, 60 belongs in the old-folks home, slow-poke lane. So get the heck back to Indianawisconsinohio before I pile into the back of your piece of $hit American-made car. You think I'm kidding? Yes, that's me with the high beams talking to you, a$$hole!

Jess said...

My beef is that my necklace somehow magically grew 5" overnight. And it was the perfect length before. I am completely stumped.

JulyBug said...

Work, work, and also work.

ana said...

Two mondays in a week, kill me.
Need to iron when you are running late - murphy's law, happens all the time.

but wait it's all okay, it'll take more than that to screw this wednesday *gossip girl* *chuck bass* I'm good!!!

Valerie said...

Oh my, TWO guys grabbed your booty and you slapped them? *snaps* You GO girl!! Wow. I always think about doing it, but I've never had the guts. *bows*

ChasingParadise said...

My beef: 16 emails from my boss today. Everyone at work thinking I have nothing better to do than to do their little tasks, when I'm trying to get everything done for the 2007 budget close. People who never answer the phone. People who never return phone calls. Not having any money. I could go on and on and on!

pinksundrops said...

I love this idea! And I feel really weird about leaving my beef here but here goes... late night work schedules so that sleeping in is required and the entire morning is shot. Ugh. I feel lazy even though I'm technically still up the same amount of hours each day.

lspoon said...

That I've had all this time off and I'm STILL tired! Why can't I sleep?

Le Petit Chic said...

My beef is the micromanager boss who just can't relax and breath already!
Happy 2nd Monday of the week (I feel the same way!)

tshirtandjeans said...

totally just lived your drunken statement beef... only it was a sober statement, which makes it a tad worse.

Scotty said...

Current beefs:

- Similar situation to yours at NYE party I was at. When girl tells me story... I ask, 'Well, did you tell him not to do that?' She says, 'No.' 'Ummm... that's just telling him its ok. You had better tell him something if he does it again, or I will.'

Sidenote, this reminded me of a Halloween where I dressed as a hula girl. I have never had my butt grabbed so much. The disturbing part? Some grabbers were guys, I felt very violated.

- People who say, 'I will call you' and dont.

PrincessPolly said...

i hate the fact that my time off work is over and I have to be back at work tomorrow. :(

graffitigirldesigns said...

a: i love the word asshat

b: i absolutely hate the parking thing. what is even more freaking maddening is when you are waiting patiently for someone to back out of a spot with your blinker on and some asshat just shoots over and pops right in. i agree - get out of your car so i can beat you up.

c: i would normally agree with your christmas returns rant - however this year i totally made out. exchanged for the better size and got money back to buy more clothes because of the half offs. yay me. you know because i need more clothes.

La said...

Do you not just LOVE the word asshat? Brilliance. My beef today is that my stomach is too full to eat all the yummy food I want to eat, because all of the sudden, I have an appetite.
:)

distractedspunk said...

Want a secret? Go on New Year's eve, about two or three hours before all the stores close, or New Year's Day when the stores are just opening. In and out. I bought about $400 worth of clothes for less than $200. Hello, new work wardrobe!

And my beef? I think I'm too disoriented to have any beefs, right now.

Katie said...

My beef: Strangers that kiss you at midnight on New Year's Even then simply disappear... POOF. Gone.

I have no luck.

Yoda said...

So it was your ass that I grabbed on NYE?

:-p

My beef: Women with long artificial nails. When they type with those fingernail tips I cringe on every keystroke! I hates them.

Katelin said...

I hate when guys grab my ass or anything like that, it's so gah.

I don't really have a beef today. Just the fact that I'm at work is a beef, haha. I miss vacation.

Susie said...

All good beefs. I'm in a good mood, so I don't have too many right now. Or how about guys who you make plans with every week and then something comes up EVERY time. And that's not even the half of it. No, I'm not bitter. That's what Wednesdays are for, right??

Miss A said...

1. Needing too much sleep
2. Listening to my colleague text
3. Survivor being aired on a Sat night

Sarah said...

Ooooh you slapped someone? Two someones?! I've always wanted to slap someone!

Wait, is that horrible?

Slightly Disorganized said...

um, my beef is with the baggage claim at the airport. like i don't have better things to do than sit and wait for three hours.

Julie Q said...

My beef is that these past two "3 day" work weeks have seemed SO UNBELIEVABLY LONG! blarf!

Happy New Years! :)

DG said...

I need more sleep - even after 9 hours!!!

MRhé said...

Text messaging is the bane of the modern relationship. So easy and so...corrupting.

Pick up the damn phone! Or, rather, keep it on your hand and push "Call"...

daily editor said...

My beef is that I can't stand it when my boss calls in "sick" the day after a huge snowstorm and then leaves me a rambling message about what she wants my other coworkers to do for her while she's out. Why doesn't she just call them herself and leave the message with them? Gah!

Whew!

Tara said...

I agree. Today does feel like a Monday. And, this feeling has happened two weeks in a row for me. Doesn't feel much like a holiday.

My beef:

1) Attorneys who freak out and say, "Why isn't this on my calendar? Is it on yours?" Then, when I check my calendar it's on there, and it's on the attorney's calendar. Luckily, Outlook shows who the date was sent to and when. But still I hear, "You should keep better track of this." Argh!

2) Stupid clients. Enough said.

3) The co-worker who bitches about everything and says things like, "It's cold as ass." Really. How cold is ass?

4) Middle of the week holidays.

5) The evil receptionist at my doctor's office.

Whew! I feel much better. :-)

The Underpaid Princess said...

I keep forgetting it's not Monday. It's driving me crazy!

NWO said...

Call me a glassishalffull kinda guy, but there's also 2 Fridays this week. Party on!

Kristie said...

My beef is always the same. Sports. I swear, we have some random sport on the damn tv every second of the day. I can't wait till Eric goes back to work after his holiday school break so I can watch some damn tv!

libby said...

ahh i totally feel you on it feels like 2 mondays!!

Spunk said...

I really believe that we're all bummed out. I can't wait for things to calm back down. But thank goodness it's really only a three day work week.

Lora said...

Love your blog-- I just found it today.
Happy New Year!

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

HOLY, YES, THIS RANT IS THE BEST. AND PRECISELY BECAUSE A FEW OF THESE THINGS WERE COMING OUT MY BITCHING MY MOUTH JUST THE OTHER DAY. But i'm currently irritated with people are they're god forsaken resolutions, It took me 25 minutes ot get on an ellyptical machine today since people decided to be "fit". assholes.

love your blog.

dreamgirl said...

my beef: stomach issues day 1 into the new year! boo! but tomorrow is friday!! :)

sassafras said...

My beef this morning? People who flash their lights at you on the highway to get you to move out of the lane. Listen buddy, have some f***ing patience...I will move over as soon as I pass the car I'm passing. Dick.

Annie said...

At least the second Monday is for an shortened week?

Asshats! I've taken to elbows to the face. All stops have been pulled. You touch my ass? Prepare for bloody nose.

Beef: My flood light isn't working on the side of my townhouse. Who knows what kind of vermin are lurking in the side yard my landlord has yet to clean up? If you never hear from me again, the rabid raccoon got me.

Who? Me? said...

My beef is that my winter break is already almost over. Christmas came on a Tuesday so I didn't really enjoy Monday or Tuesday. I went to visit my parents so I didn't really get to enjoy Thursday or Friday. Then this week I spent Monday cleaning and Tuesday with Noah so my first day to myself was yesterday. Three days to myself is not enough :(

Princess Pointful said...

My beef is with my HomeTown's airport. Delays on the way here and now on the way back? Bah.

elysa said...

Cats always pick there worst place to hang out. Mine think that my pillow is their bed. It's so fun to try to fall asleep and realize you have 2 whole cats worth of cat hair on your pillow.

My beef this week is this cough!

Passionista said...

I second the drunken statements rant!
