Since I seem to be clogging up my Random Thoughts thread with negativity here lately (and I don't want to do that, I want to save it for more light-hearted stuff), I thought I would start us a thread for when we just need to vent our pet peeves, or blow off some steam, and give it a cute little title too! Teehee! So this is the Official "Oh No She (or He) Di-nt Thread". Feel free to use it whenever you need to.

So I'll go first. (Y'all knew I would, teehee!)

My 15-year-old son got his first car! He is soooo excited. His dad (my ex-husband) bought it for him. It's a 1998 Honda Civic, and he is in love with it. It's a great little car too. I drove it to Atlanta for the NWA Fanfest because it has air conditioning and the air is out in my small car.

Here's the problem. When I got back, I went to get the car registered (it still has the drive out tag from the car lot where he bought it), and the County Clerk's Office lady was taking a really long time looking at my title. Then she looked at me and said "you've got a problem". My heart sank. She explained to me that the original owner of the car never signed off on the title. Someone else signed the title, sold the car to the car lot, and they sold the car to us. They signed by Power of Attorney, and the signatures don't even match. Worst case scenario, the car could be stolen. And I can't get the car registered until the car lot fixes the title.

I've contacted the car lot, and my ex-husband has contacted the car lot and even went down there, and the BITCH that runs this car lot is giving us every excuse in the book why she can't do anything, and now we have a car we can't get registered or drive, and my son's heart is broken. I'm ready to go down there and drag this "woman" out onto the pavement and beat her ass, but my ex-husband won't let me (lol), him being an attorney and all. (I get that way when someone hurts my child.)

So now, my ex-husband is in the process is drawing up papers to take this woman to court and we are going to have to sue her to get our money back on the car that we can't drive or get registered, and my son will have to give back the car. I'm madder than hell!

OH NO SHE DI-NT!!

I like this venting thing. My complaint is I had to go to work today at 4:30 in the morning. And since I'm unwinding right now that's all I'm saying. Just lately I been working weird hours with only about 8 hours rest in between.

Thank you Bull. We all need to have one little corner of the world where we can just let it out sometimes, don't we?

Aya... What a headache! Sorry to hear of this trouble, Halo-san. It is discouraging - though not overly surprising - to know that such people exist. Making a profit seems more important than being honest or considerate, these days. I am glad that you already know a lawyer, at least. Hope it gets sorted out quickly!

And for your son... While the lesson has been hard perhaps also it is a good thing that he learns it now? For all his future vehicles, now he'll remember this and check into the sources first... Make sure that he is getting a legitame deal.

Courage & Peace

I love avacados! But have you seen the price on these little suckers? I was at the grocery store yesterday and they wanted $1.88 each. EACH! FOR ONE! And they were really small and shriviled up. I have a friend who works at the Hard Rock Cafe and they are paying $70 a case for these things. (How many are in a case?) I can't believe it.

No guacamole for Halo anytime soon!

Yah. Seems like it's been an extra hard year for agriculture. Strange weather. Lots of crop losses, all over the world. Supply is down, demand is up - hunger is always an issue somewhere on our planet - so prices are up as well. I don't know if avacados will grow where you are Halo. But if they can, maybe get a plant of your own next year. Have a little garden. Seems to be the best way. Guess we should be thankful we at least have that option.

Courage & Peace

I wish avacados would grow here . . . but they won't. :( I love them so much. But since I'm getting so much land along with my house, my son and I were just talking about planting our own garden next spring. Just a small one . . . enough for ourselves and to share with friends. We thought maybe some tomatoes, okra, corn, yellow squash, cucumbers, and bell peppers. Maybe some pumpkins too to have for Halloween. These vegetables grow really well here in Tennessee. Other people grow tobacco and strawberries here for profit, but there's no way I would get into that. I don't have near enough land and time for that, and it takes way more work than I would be willing to put into it anyway.

And on an "Oh No They Di-Nt" Note . . .

I was watching TV today, and I saw a commercial for this new football-toy-like thingy. It is about 3/4 of a football, and then has a flat rubber end so you can throw it up against a hard surface and it will bounce back to you. The commercial featured four children standing still, throwing the football up against a brick house and catching the football as it came back to them.

Are they serious??? Are our American children so fat and lazy now that they need a football that they can throw against a wall and it comes back to them and they don't have to move now? What happened to playing REAL football? Can children not chase a REAL football? I was so astounded when I saw this commercial I just stood there with my mouth open. I couldn't believe it. I seriously think any parent who orders this thing for their child should be strung up in the middle of town square for the world to see, teehee. This is outrageous!

And what happened to parents tossing the football with their children. Where were the parents in this commercial? On the couch? This commercial didn't promote parents playing with their children in any way whatsoever. I have to say, this was absolutey the worst commercial I have ever seen. It should be taken off the air immediately, in my opinion.

Sorry for my rant on that subject but, WTF? And American parents wonder why their children are overweight and lazy. Duh, people, duh!

Halo

I still can't believe this one.

My son and I stopped to get a bite of dinner after I picked him up from his Dad's house this evening and we had a laugh. There was a couple in the booth behind us, and when the waitress came to take their order, the man asked for a cup of "decapitated coffee". The waitress giggled, and I turned around to giggle too just to enjoy his joke with him. My son was laughing too. With a very straight face, the man continued with his order. The waitress had to straighten her face to continue taking his order, and this made me and my son laugh even harder to realize he wasn't joking. It was just so funny, we couldn't stop laughing. I finally got ahold of myself, but my son couldn't. I had to make him go to the bathroom until he could stop.

It was one of those "I guess you had to be there" moments. But it was so, so, funny.

Halo

That reminds me of a class I took recently cor CPR and first aid. The person talking said "It's not what you don't do, it's what you do do." When that was said, I turned to the guy next to me to get his attention about what was said and he didn't get it. So I just kept giggling to myself about that. Still makes me smile just thinking about it.

Say it out loud. It's the second part that always gets me. Simple things like this make me laugh.
