I Hate Having to Keep My Mouth Shut!

I'm the type of person that feels the need to make sure that someone knows when they are being an asshat. If I am treated rudely at a store or restaurant by an employee, I will either say something to them or talk to their manager about it. I've gotten in a few shouting matches with people in public because they were just being total twat waffles and they needed to know it! I can't stand people who are rude or out of line and I feel the need to tell them so!

I really hate it when I have to zip my lips and just keep my comments to myself. The most recent problem I've encountered is in the town we live in. We just moved here almost a year ago (just a few weeks away). It's a nice small town with a lot of rich people but most of them are very friendly. It's one of those towns where everyone knows everyone else and I have kind of felt like the outsider here. The town runs their own utilities and everything keeping them safe from having to follow any state or federal rules and regulations. As I said, most people in this town have a lot of money but if you drive around you can find plenty of people who are not so lucky (including us). My problem is with the utility people. Everything is all on one bill: water, electricity, and gas. We have had problems since we moved in. When we first moved in, we were getting charged outrageous water bills and when we questioned them about it, we were told that we must have had a leak. We had all new plumbing put in before we moved in, there was no leak. Ironically enough, the town was also putting in new water lines at the same time and we were told by other people who lived in this town that they were famous for passing their bill onto newcomers to the town. Surprisingly, when the water lines were finished, our bill went down drastically. When we asked about it again, the head woman at the utilities department told us that we must have gotten our leak fixed and that we were just lying about it! She actually called my husband a liar! They have no programs available for low income residents, no percentage of income program or anything like that. The head woman of the utilities department is the biggest bitch in town. She refuses to work with anyone and treats anyone who can't pay their bill like lazy pieces of shit even though my husband probably works physically harder in ONE day than that twat has ever in her life! It is taking everything I can not to go to their Facebook page and tell everyone about this rude bitch. I mean, she is downright rude. She has basically told us that she doesn't give a shit about our situation, our kids, or anything at all. She is also one of the "board" members of the town, so I feel that even if I did try to complain to anyone, it wouldn't get anywhere. It's to the point where we have actually discussed selling the house that we just bought last year and getting out of town.. but we really don't want to because it IS a nice town. I so badly want to call this bitch up and just go off on her.. but I'm sure that would backfire on me because she IS the one who runs the place and she can pretty much do whatever she wants to do to make our life Hell in this town.

There's also the issue of my kids' teachers. My daughter has a teacher whom I got into an argument with a few months ago about a stupid library fine. She stepped way out of line with some of the things she said and made me feel like shit. It's soo hard for me to not tell her what I really think about her but I'm sure word would travel fast and I don't want things to be any harder for my family or our kids.

It drives me crazy not to be able to put people in their place that deserve it. Honestly, I'm one of the nicest and most caring people that you will ever meet and that's why it pisses me off when people are so rude to me or any of my family because I don't raise my kids to be that way and I want to bitch slap anyone who IS that way.

How about you? Do you have to bite your tongue often?? Are you content with just zipping your lips and keeping your thoughts to yourself??

Time has Crossed the Line

I'm sure the majority of my readers have already seen the newest cover of Time magazine that is causing so much controversy. I refuse to post it in my blog and if you have not seen it yet, it shows a mother with her 3 yr old son sucking on her nipple. I found the photo absolutely disgusting.

I don't care if mothers choose to breastfeed or bottle feed. I think it is everyone's own personal choice and no one should judge anyone else for their own personal parenting decisions. This magazine cover goes beyond the argument between breastfeeding, bottle feeding, and attachment parenting. First of all, the kid looks like he is 5, not 3. You can tell that the kid feels awkward and uncomfortable just from the look on his face. Can you imagine what it must have been like for a kid that age to be standing in front of 345087345 people under bright lights and in front of big cameras being told to suck on his mommy's boob? What happens when he is 8? or 12 years old? He is going to be humiliated, teased, and tormented. I don't know why the mom did it, if she was trying to make a point or trying to boast that she is such a better parent than everyone else or what but I think she is disgusting for making her child do that. How much money did she make off of this?

Not to mention, that a 3 year old is too old to be breastfeeding!!!!!! It's just weird and creepy to me to see a big ass kid like that sucking on a nipple. A 3 year old should not have a bottle at that age let alone a real nipple! Some parents need to LET GO!! Let the kid grow up a little bit, he doesn't have to be attached to you 24/7. I think some mothers are taking the whole attachment parenting thing WAY too far. Let the kid have a little bit of independence, they will need it when they are grown because, believe it or not, they WILL grow up and leave the nest.. without you!!!!

I was hoping and praying that this magazine cover would at least be covered up in the grocery store so that my kids didn't have to see this photograph. Doesn't matter now though since Good Morning America decided to show the cover about 10 times on the TV this morning while my kids were getting ready for school. They saw it. They didn't say anything about it, but I saw the questioning looks in their eyes.

What do you think of the cover??

Is Facebook Your Right?

I recently heard that during job interviews, employers have been known to ask the interviewee to log into the Facebook account and let the employer view their private page. This has caused quite a debate on Facebook and most people agree with me that it is just plain wrong.

Yes, Facebook is a public social networking website but that is why there is the option of posting things as public or private. I have a sarcastic and crazy sense of humor. I post a lot of funny shit on Facebook. If I think that something could have the possibility of being offensive, I make it private because I know most of my friends will laugh just as hard as I do but some people may not. If I don't want strangers to know my private business, I make it private. It is MY right to choose who I wish to share what with.

I have heard of employers looking at people's Facebook pages and I guess I don't have a problem with that because they can see things that you decided to make public. If you made something public that is offensive or stupid, that's your own damned fault, but to make someone log into it and show an employer their private business? That is just wrong! It is no different than telling the person to hand over the cell phone so that you can read through their private text messages and look through their private photos.

I need a job but if someone asked me to log into my private Facebook page so that they could read everything, I would kindly tell them to fuck off! I don't want to work for someone that would nose into my private life that way. If they do that, what else will they snoop around in?? Or maybe I would ask them to let me look through their cell phone while they look through my Facebook page?? Everyone has their right to privacy and if they made their FB page private, no no one has the right to force you to let them read it!

Hiring someone should be based on how they carry themselves during the interview along with references and background checks..etc.. That's what they are for. Even though I may have a fucked up sense of humor, I know how to be professional and courteous when needed. Hiring or firing someone should be based on how they perform while they are on the clock not what they do in their own private personal time!

Have you heard of anyone being forced to log into their Facebook account? Has it happened to you? Thoughts??
