    Stupid random rash that popped up in a couple of spots, please go away... or at least stop itching like crazy. :(

    To a certain family member: Please rinse (or at least wipe with a paper towel) the ketchup (or any other sauce) off your plates before putting them in the sink so that the mess doesn't dry on the plates. The dishwasher doesn't always get all that crap off once its dried on there. It takes less than a minute to rinse the plate off. And while we're on the subject, unless there's no room in the right side of the sink, please stop putting your dishes on the garbage disposal side of the sink. I'm tired of having to move dishes every time I need to use the disposal.

    To mom.
    Please stop talking to me with that annoyed tone. I didn't say anything to make you blow like that. I just asked where to put those plants while cleaning window but you started rant on me.

    Dear chick at the vet clinic:

    If you knew you didn't give me the information I needed to register our cat's microchip on Monday then why did you just stick it in the file and wait until I figured it out and called about it? I assumed you'd turn in the form I filled out and I'd get an e-mail with info. on how to register. Since it's now four days later and I haven't gotten anything I decided to call and find out you stuck it in the file but can mail it to me. Thanks for the great customer service. :rolleyes:

    No love,
    PA.

    Dear self:

    Why did you give the OK to reschedule your 2:30 appt. to 12:30 when you had another appt. at 10:00 on the other side of the Earth? Of course the specialist had surgery this morning and was running over an hour behind so there was no way you were gonna make that 2nd appt. What were you thinking? :wtf:

    No love,
    PA.

    Woo-hoo, new thread! Can't believe we're on number four...I think this proves that CSI fans are just a bunch of angry people who like puzzles that involve blood and science.:lol:
    Darn, it Carolyn_333, did you give me your cold? I didn't think colds could be spread over the internet but I just saw Contagion, so I don't know what to think anymore when it comes to sicknesses.:lol:

    ---

    To my German professor, why must you insist on assigning twenty pages of meaningless activity pages and endless tracks of people speaking German with a clear accent (it's next to impossible for me to understand German when someone is mispronouncing every syllable)? I don't understand how this is helping me learn this language. It doesn't help matters that everytime the prof speaks, a innuendo comes out. Ugh, men make me sick.:rolleyes:

    Dear idiots downstairs, please stop turning the thermostat down to 0. First of all, it doesn't work like an on/off switch (my ex used to do that - 0 and 40, only two settings he ever used :rolleyes:), and secondly, it's freezing upstairs now!

    Well, if it can be spread over the internet, and I've had this cold since Tuesday, I'll probably infect half of Talk CSI. Then half of Talk CSI will be coming here to rant at me.:lol:
    :rolleyes:Oh well, long as I don't get kicked or banned, I can deal with it.;)

    I'm doing something a little different since I started this rant thread. I'm gonna have a RANT Of The Day which may or may not be accompanied by some smaller rants. Here's my first RANT Of The Day.

    RANT OF THE DAY
    Dang debit card machines. Why can't you just spell out why a transaction is declined?
    A couple of examples: Transaction declined...NSF. [Or] Transaction declined...incorrect PIN.
    It would've saved me racking my brain out playing detective. It would've helped if you had told me incorrect PIN. Then I would've realized way sooner than I did that I was using debit card A's PIN with debit card B.

    Smaller RANT
    Whoever is in charge of deciding when the CSI shows come out on DVD. Why can't you put them out the Tuesday before any of the shows start a new season? I can deal with waiting till September but having to wait till one or two weeks in to the new season is frustrating. :klingon::scream::brickwall::mad::censored:

    Dear Professor:

    When I signed up for this course, there was no prerequisite that said "you must know French". So how can you just casually bring up in class that we're going to have to read and review a French article and just expect all of us to be able to do it? You think high school French prepares us for something like this? Well, it doesn't. And how can you tell someone that doesn't speak French to "learn it fast"? :wtf: It doesn't really work like that for most of us. I was never good at French and came into university thinking it was finally over and you throw this at us. Thanks a lot. I already hate your class.

    Also, when I say I don't know French it means I DON'T KNOW FRENCH. You can't say "try it first". There is no trying to be done. It'll be all Google Translate because I CAN'T SPEAK OR READ OR WRITE FRENCH. If I fail this course I am solely blaming you and this assignment.

    I think our professors are in the same club of "let's frustrate our students". My German professor does the same thing. When I politely tell him, "Sir, I don't know how to read this," he throws me a German-English dictionary and says, "Work it out, you know the mechanics so this should be easy." It's so unbelievably annoying to hear a man with a M.D. in German telling me how easy it is to understand a German article written in future perfect tense.

    Darn, now I can't even remember what my rant for today was going to be about. Oh well, no use crying over spilt milk.:lol:

    Dear Canada: you can have your cold air back. We are SO not ready for it. Love, me.

    Note: I'm not bashing Canada in any way. Canada is awesome. =3

    What are neighbours for if we can't share things with others :) and besides it's only fair that we give you this cold weather. Just think of all the snow storms we get that come up from Texas or the Ohio Valley :)

    Sounds like a fair trade to me. :D

    As for the cold thing - now I'm starting to get a bit sniffly. If I get a full-blown cold, I'm definitely blaming all of you! :p

    My rant for today - checked my cell bill today, and despite me calling them at least three times, and spelling it out phoenetically (alpha, bravo, etc), they STILL have the wrong name on my account!!

    Way to go, Carolyn_333. This is two people you've infected and following my Contagion logic, that means over a billion people will be infected by Monday. Instead of The Dead Thread Reviver maybe we should call you The Infector of Talk CSI.:p

    ---

    Dear myself, why must I be so dumb at times? I was writing a paper for Intro to CJS a couple of hours ago and, I don't know whether I'm just drunk on Nyquil (definately) or just drunk on lack of sleep (probably), but I look back on my paper to do some basic editing and it turns out I was writing a very vivid description of the feeling I get when I eat french fries.:guffaw: I'm not joking. How am I supposed to go to grad school if I can barely write a paper when sick?:p

    To Jeopardy show contestants, why do you always look so lost when answering stupid questions? You have 10 Masters Degrees in things like Native American language of the Sioux and Music Theory, I think you know what the answer to the daily double on Native American dances. And don't get me started on how preppy these guys/gals look. Robert, do you really have to wear a vest and a cardigan with a tie? You didn't think that was too much look when you walked into the studio? Well, it is; don't ever wear that again...ever. Unless you have a job as a interviewer for The Weekly Science Journal or NPR.:lol:

    Dear My Brain,
    Why must you play tricks on me? Last night you give me an intense dream about of all people my ex-fiance. Oh and a romantic one at that. He and I haven't been together in 9 years. I haven't seen him in 8 years. I have been married for 6 years to someone else. However, some how last night I had a dream that last for what seemed like half the night with him in it. Now I almost feel haunted by it. Does it mean anything? I keep wondering. In the future keep him out of my head.
    Thanks so much,
    Me

    Could be worse. I could have the flu.

    My cold is alot better than it was 3 days ago. And now I know why. It's a mutant cold with a mind of its own. It travels through the internet and infects people I don't want it to. That's why all of you are getting it and not the anti-David Caruso, anti-Horatio Caine, anti-CSI: Miami people over at IMDB.:guffaw:

    OK, getting serious. Here's my RANT Of The Day. I gotta tell you it's a minor one, imho. But it is cold related.

    RANT Of The Day
    Dang cough. Why do wait till I'm pretty much over the rest of the cold before you strike? Now where did I put those Hall's cough drops I bought at Target today?
