WTF?! Friday

 I hope everyone had a good week! I woke up this morning feeling a little bit under the weather. Luckily I don't have to work tomorrow so I can take it easy and get some rest. If I feel up to it then I think I will try and shop for a new light fixture for the nursery this weekend. Exciting, I know. I also need some drawer knobs for her dresser because the ones it came with aren't decorative enough. Have a great weekend everyone!

One of the many downsides to being poor is that I have to settle for a crappy phone. It’s a touch screen that doesn’t like to be touched. I try and make a phone call or send a text message and the screen remains unaffected, mocking the fact that it doesn’t have to obey me. It does this frequently. One day I’m going to be in a dire situation where making a call is vital to my life and this stupid phone will be too damn stubborn to do it. If you guys ever find my body in a gutter then sue Cricket for me. That's the piece of crap phone company I'm with and the corporation who will be responsible for my demise. WTF?!

Elevators are practical. Doctors are practical. Elevators at my doctors are not practical. I went in on Wednesday for a 10:45 appointment, arrived at the medical building about 10:40 and checked in on the ninth floor at 10:55. I still don’t understand how that was possible. The whole time I was waiting for an elevator. The one’s going up were coming from the parking garage and packed with people. The one’s coming down were heading to the garage and when they came back up they were jammed again. I should have just gotten on anyway but my brain doesn’t work when I’m highly annoyed. This was an endless cycle. There are four elevators and twelve floors. There are stairs too. People would take the elevator to the first and second floors. I contemplated walking but remembered it’s a struggle for me to even put my shoes on in the morning. On top of that people were so rude and would push past me to get on. I don’t except people to go out of their way for me because I’m pregnant but I also wouldn’t expect them to shove past me if I weren’t. WTF?!

All women have at least a little bit of crazy in them. Undoubtedly our significant others can bring this crazy out of us even more. One woman took crazy to a new level when she ran over her boyfriend with her car. You might think that her psychotic episode was related to something that is somewhat justifiable, like infidelity, but you’d be wrong. Okay, maybe I’m a little crazy since I think running someone over with a car is ever somewhat justifiable in any situation other than a life threatening one. Her reason was that she called her boyfriend, who was out jogging, and asked him for some money. She met him where he was and he gave her what he had on him. She was apparently very unhappy with the amount he gave her (cause people jogging carry tons of cash on them) and as he jogged off she hit the accelerator and rammed into him. He hit the hood, she backed up; he fell off and then she ran over his legs. I don't know if gold diggers around the world are extremely proud of her or shaking their heads at this? WTF?!

I tend to over react to things, I know. Luckily my husband usually calms me down and talks some sense into me. One family apparently doesn’t have a rational thinker as they called 911 because they were lost in a corn maze. Now, at first I wasn’t so outraged by this story. I thought, “What are you suppose to do when you’re lost?” Then I remembered it’s freaking corn and not a cement wall. You can walk through corn and at the very least if you are stranded for days then you can eat the corn. They were found 25 feet from the entrance.WTF?!

I heard about that corn maze story. They said they got disoriented and didn't know where they were and that their 3 week old baby was with them. Why would you take a 3 week old baby to a corn maze? And how do you get disoriented? Was there not other people around, can you not call out for other people and say hey I am lost or like you said walk through the corn! Why call 911? Please! Anyway..Sean. Thanks for the comment and for your funny WTF fridays. Have a great weekend!

Hi! :) I found you in a blog hop and now following. That is too funny about the elevator! That is crazy that you waited that long for one.
I hope you have some time to check out my blog

You are hilarious! That elevator business would make my head threaten to explode though!

LOVE MELISSA:) October 14, 2011 at 10:12 PM  

I can't believe someone would be so rude. Hold the elevator, you are pregnant!! Ignorant people. sorry that happened to you. Thanks for linking up on my site. This is my first week doing it. I hope you'll join every week. Have a great weekend!

took your blog button:)

I'm that crazy fool who would panic in a corn maze and call 9-1-1 too... :/ However, knowing this about myself, I choose NOT to go in corn mazes... go figure! And the elevator thing? Yeah... I do NOT go into elevators that are already packed with people and I can't stand the individuals that do. Sorry, but making a pregnant woman walk up flights and flights of stairs when most of them probably had two highly-functioning legs to take the stairs just embarrasses me for the human race. This country is filled with lazy inconsiderate oafs, I'm noticing too much lately. Hmmm... anyway, enjoy your day off and enjoy all the emails with my comments- I left you a bunch, I know, since you're a favorite and I'm getting caught up. :p

I always appreciate your crazy wrap-ups. Yes you're right the corn would have served as sustenance. It is infuriating when people spend taxpayers $ on lame things that they should be able to figure out themselves.

And homegirl is crazy. Now she has to spend all that money trying to get out of jail and her hopefully ex-boyfriends (for his sake) hospital bills.

Wow there are some crazy things happening in the world today. Lately there is just been a giant question mark over my head. It makes me appreciate my life and the people in it so much more though.

Anyway, I'm Sarah, I'm following from the Welcome Weds blog hop even though it's Monday (thank goodness it's open all week, it's a long list). I wanted to invite you to stop by and follow back.

Thanks and have a wonderful Monday. I hope you are feeling better.

heh hehhhh the corn story...very true. funny how people can so quickly think they are done for and take it to a whole new level of whoah.

to wait that long would drive me bonkers but definitely a practice in patience!

The Presutti's October 17, 2011 at 5:49 PM  

I know this is sad, but I laughed out loud when I read she ran over boyfriend.

I also heard about the corn maze story. Too funny!!

Hope you had a great weekend!

I heard about that corn maze story. All I can do is laugh and shake my head.

What I wanna know? What did that woman who ran over her boyfriend need to buy? I think that's an important part of the story.

And I hope you post some pictures of that nursery sometime soon. :)

Megan October 17, 2011 at 6:41 PM  

Oh, and I do think people should let us pregnant women go first. Once the baby is here, you can do what I do...just ram into them with your huge stroller. :)
