I started to write a post this morning, but it was a long rant that really wouldn't have made much of a difference in the world anyway, so I deleted it. Then I thought about what else to write about and another ranty topic came to mind. And another. Yeah, there's a lot to rant about in the world.
There's an autistic boy missing from the town just north of where I grew up. So many things wrong with that story, I could go for hours.
There's a college football player who decked a woman in a bar.
Someone else claimed a racial identity that didn't belong to her.
The lead-in for a news story here read something like 'car pulled from lake is now out'. :eyeroll:
And then there was the gal who wrote about how 5-star reviews are all bullshit made up by friends and family of the writer. I could really go to town on that one. I mean, how dare she? Insulting not only my fans but myself - because I write a lot of 5-star reviews... GAH!
You know, it's really hard to stick to my 2014 promise to not let shit irritate me. Irritating shit is everywhere and it seems to be getting worse by the day. I'd stop reading the news, but you know, I'd rather not get blindsided when something stupid happens that might just effect me or mine.
Ignorance is only bliss because you're not aware of the truck headed right for you. And it only lasts until the thing runs you over.
So, like I said last week, I'm trying not to talk about stuff. But it's damn hard. And I may not live up to that promise. There's such a wealth of things to rant about. Poor Hubs has to listen to me rant daily, although sometimes he joins in and we rant together.
Do you rant? In private or in public?
