WTF?! Friday

Today was so hectic and I'm glad it's over. Hope everyone has a good weekend!

I understand that parents can choose whatever name they'd like for their child. Not everyone is going to think it's a good choice or like the name. I also understand wanting to give your child something unique or uncommon.One couple recently named their baby after a video game character though. A video game character. So they could get a lifetime of free video games. His name is Dovahkiin. I'm not even going to pretend I know how to pronounce that. It's not the name itself that bothers me but the fact that they did it for a stupid contest to win games. Some people put more thought and consideration into naming their pets. WTF?!

I find magazines more and more useless everyday. The stories published are weeks behind what we already know and the layout of them is challenging for those of us who expect while reading an article to turn the page and have the rest of the story to be there. No. Why would it be that simple? Instead I see continued on page 96 at the bottom of page 34 while the next page is just a stupid advertisement. Who designs these things and why is it so hard? WTF?! 

I have a love/hate relationship with computers. My personal laptop crapped out on me this week with no warning signs or anything. Just died completely. I didn't spend a lot of money on it as far as technology goes but I've only had it about three years. That equals around $100 + dollars a year to use. That seems a little ridiculous to me. I may want to consider getting a library card and hanging out there in my free time. WTF?!
The model on the poster below is is shamefully the work of the company I work for. She's beautiful, the hair is great but the photographer missed one key mistake. He forgot to Photoshop her camel toe. She looks like a transsexual. I know the quality of this picture sucks but it might be better this way. It spares you the graphic details. WTF?!

I'm absolutely appalled at how attached people are to their damn phones. My co-worker was watching a video online while I was curiously peering over her shoulder (we're hard workers on occasion) and I thought the clip was a joke. A bride and groom were in the midst of saying their vows when the bride reaches into her cleavage, pulls out her phone and texts someone. The groom just watches her without saying anything. Something tells me she's the kind of girl who would have completely lost her mind if he did that to her. Do meaningful relationships exist anymore or is everything about texts and FB? WTF?!

I feel your pain. My computer died on me too. I gave up and bought a Mac. Best decision I have made. I know, everyone texts 24/7. Enough people,lol:)

Magazines annoy me too. All the fashion spreads list clothing that almost always costs 100 dollars or more. It's one thing for a high fashion magazine to do that but something like 'Health'? I mean, come on. Like the average reader can afford that stuff. Not helpful.

Ha, did you read my latest post? We're on the same page. Cell phones are great but there should be an etiquette class that goes along with them.

Some feel they are just way too important to be with out them, heaven forbid their legions of fans couldn't get a hold of them.

I was on a field trip with my son and the man walking in front of me was holding his son's hand and with his other hand doing who knows what on his phone. He put it into his pocket and not 20 seconds later brought it out again, he just couldn
t be without it.

How about interacting with your son?

LOL I agree with you about giving their children weird and crazy names! Poor kid named after a video game! :O

Ah! I'm sorry about your computer. :(

That lady that pulled out her phone on her wedding day, I am in shock. People these days are ridiculous. -___-
