This is sort of a harmless little ol' rant.
At least, I think it is!
Sometimes, though, once I get started I can get kinda wound up, and it "could" end up a full fledged crazy woman rant. We'll see how this one goes.
Do you hate 'em?!
I just hate 'em!
Now, granted - it IS fun to be a Drama Queen once in awhile. And okay - I admit it - I turn into one when I have a major rant. But, I don't live that role daily. For one thing, it's exhausting! And for another, it's boring.
I'm as bored to death by them as William Holden playing Joe Gillis here is by Gloria Swanson's Norma Desmond.
Actually, I adore Norma Desmond. Sadly, though, the Drama Queens I've encountered haven't a smidgen of the flair she had.
I mean, IF you're gonna be a Drama Queen; at least be entertaining with it.
Keep me on the edge of my seat wondering what on earth might come next.
Instead, I get whiners who want to start every single conversation with a tale about how busy they are at work (sigh), or how sick they've been (so sorry, sigh). Now, I don't mean to sound un-sympathetic. If this weren't a pattern with some people I would be ever so sympathetic. But these are the people you have to wonder how on earth they ever find the time to pee they're so over-worked. Or how they ever have time to enjoy a sunset 'cause they're always so sick. It's pitiful. And I guess that's my rant. Pitiful just bores me to tears.
Does it you? Or am I just mean mean mean?
oooh - Mean People! I REALLY hate mean people! So, I hope I'm not one. Well, okay - sometimes I can be. But only when pushed and I feel the need to push back. (that's fair? right?).
I try to keep one rule in mind when I use Meanderings and Muses to vent.
For every rant, I try to mention something I like.
Well, I like the old bumper sticker that says "Mean People Suck."
And I love "Sunset Boulevard."
What do you love?
What do you hate?
