THURSDAY: RANT DAY!
Hey I think this blog is long over-due for something like a rant day! I mean one day at least! Possibly Rant Day will become a few days. Hmm.
So please feel free to stop by and give me a rant. Misery loves company remember and I think venting and ranting help a person to feel better!
I'll tell you what I've always done when I've had a particularly horrible day, I've always put on a horror film. Generally Psycho is great! Also American Psycho and any of the Hannibal Lecter films.
I mean who doesn't love this:
Why this, on the right sort of day absolutely warms the cockels of my heart!
Okay so what's the rant I hear you ask.
Today's rant is about nuisance callers. When husband and I moved into our home in 2006 we were given a telephone number that was supposed to have been unused for a long time. Almost immediately we began getting calls asking for a certain party. I checked around and no one knew who this person was. The former owners had an entirely different phone number.
When I explained (and husband did too) that Mrs. Jack the Ripper or whatever the hell her name was was not us, THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE US!
"We've just moved in." We said.
Guess what? They phoned back, always with the same question: "May I speak with Mrs. Jack the Ripper, please."
BUT LISTEN YOU STUPID MORON...etc.
THEY ARE STILL PHONING! They sometimes let a few months go by and they phone again!
We've had this gizmo that stops unidentified calls from getting through but guess what?
THEY GOT THROUGH!
Stepson laughed (with compassion it has to be said) and told us if they want to get through they'll get through whatever we do.
It's stopped for now, but I know it'll start up again. I always go into a bunker mentality wherein husband comes home and I greet him in a firing position with dogs cowering behind the sofa.
"Oh they called again!"
"WHAT MAKES YOU SAY THAT?!!!!!!!!!!! ARGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!"
(Takes a breath) MY RANT FOR THE WEEK!
