BUT MERRY CHRISTMAS/HAPPY HOLIDAYS LADIES!

I read the Retail Hell thread every Christmas. I know exactly why I am shopping two days before Christmas, and its not the fault of the salespeople. I am working really hard to be self-sufficient, cheerful and polite, even to the chick who decides to amuse herself by rescuing the middle aged lady from the section where she clearly didn't belong, "You're not going to find Edgar Winter in the punk section, sweetie". Ya, whatever. I have a list. My boyfriend wants punk, rock, blues and country for Christmas, so you can kiss my hairy ass.

Furthermore, I had to listen to Boney M Christmas music in high school, when it first came out. I'm over it now.

Seriously, people are that insensitive.
but don't worry I'm sure it is some kind of karmic retribution for telling my neighboors that there was no santa claus but we had the Hannukah fairy.

COB: bad azz children and the parents who dont control them. Also the adults that pretend they don't notice the child is bad. Case in point, one of my hubby's cousin's children. That little demon came in the house throwing a tantrum and continued causing a ruckus until they left. Ooooh I wanted to snatch him up.

Cob: xmas crap after xmas. Like people who leave decorations up until February. This is only acceptable if you do the whole Ukranian xmas deal.

Then again, I really don't like xmas decorations and crap.

ha ha i'm guilty of that. my christmas tree will be a dried up pile of branches before i want to take it down. i love my christmas ornaments.

Cob: catching the f@&*ing flu from my family over X-mas - the gift that keeps on giving. I'm soooo bored all i've done is watch Weeds and Big Love reruns since i'm too achy to even move from my bed. I really have to get out of this house because i'm goin' stir-crazy.

I love to see decorations lit up in January or Feb. I think it's sweet if people are trying to keep the christmas spirit alive all year long. What's wrong with that?

It's so easy for young people to be so negative and condeming, you don't realize how wonderful life is. Even in the hard times, it's worth celebrating however you can, and that is what christmas is all about. It's not about presents or drunken relatives, it's about peace and love in your heart.

MISSLADYJ- Rather than be silent with people who are unfamiliar with your traditions, why not try to educate them? Even if you think it's a waste of time, it will get in, and they will understand later and maybe appreciate your traditions more than they would had they never spoken to you. I grew up in Los Angeles, where many jews celebrated Christmas, and it has not been til lately that I have met many people who keep to the old traditions.

cob; irregardless is not a fucking word. It's REGARDLESS!!!!!


Accroding to webster, Irregardless is a word, it is an adverb that is commonly thought not to be a word, and while it is a word, it had not gained popular usage and most people do use regardless in it's place, but either word would be a "real" word.

Cob: People who make grammatical errors in the process of correcting someone else's grammar.

People's ignorance is their own. I have no time to "educate" people . Fuck that. And I am not interested in being the Jew who educates the goyim. Almost as annoying as white people who ask black people to explain racism to them. READ A FUCKING BOOK!

As far as I am concerned, Jews who celebrate Christmas are assholes. Goyim who think its okay that Jews celebrate Christmas are assholes too.

Sometimes not saying anything is more powerful that speaking.


Keeping to the old traditions, makes me sound like a fuckin high elf. Thats it, I'll go join the Eldar , they'll understand me.

Ew. Blue laws. I had forgotten about them, but when I lived in Aiken SC for a while, that was a huge cob. The stores were not allowed to sell anything other than groceries before noon on Sunday. So no running into Wally world for a pack of undies or anything!

cob: people who jog on the "side" of the road in the middle of winter! in the middle of a new york winter!!! never mind there's 5 foot snow banks on either side & the road is covered in ice, never mind you could be excersicing in a local YMCA! you've got to jog on the road! if i was a cop i would have kicked that douchebag's ass so hard. can people get a ticket for stupidity??

cob: missing food! Seriously! First I lost a cucumber. I don't know if it accidentally got mixed up with the garbage or what. And then tonight I come home and I'm unloading my groceries and realize that my $5 rosee sauce is nowhere to be found! WTF?! I just want my damn food that I paid for!

cob: people who let their dog take a huge shit on the pavement and leave it there when there's plenty of room on the side of the road and at the park TWO HOUSES AWAY. When I go on a walk, I'd like to look around at nature, not at all the dog shit endangering the life of my shoes.

cob: friends who expect me to come to them when we meet up; especially when they live so out of the way and it's awkward for me to get there, not to mention a pain in the ass. why can't you meet me in the city-centre like everybody else? It's central and convenient and it means that I'm not the one always making a bloody effort.

cob:guys who, in trying to hit on me ask me AMAZINGLY STUPID QUESTIONS like:
"so... do you ever date straight guys?"
"no, because most of them are thoughtless morons like you. let me ask you something, lets say for the sake of argument, you are a gay guy-- the most obvious part of which is that you are sexually attracted to men. young men, tom of finland men, bears, whatever, the point is that you like boys. no matter how hot the tranny, would you date a person who lives, works and acts like a woman? fuck no. you'd date a man."
"oh. i guess i never gave it any thought."
"yeah. and it shows."

gaaaaa!! Cob, very, very MAJOR cob....trying to go on technical websites dealing with your JOB when you work a male dominated career! If it's not stupid racism, it's stupid sexism....Blech. I'm SOOO tired of it. I don't need to see another thread about how ANTI-GOD it is to be considering electing a MERE, hormonal, irrational, weak WOMAN to be president. I mean, c'mon, you aren't just insulting Hillary, you're insulting ME too! And, I prolly know more than 3/4 of them. The men who work in my trade, I mean.

Maybe this should go in the feminist outrage thread. Gah.

Cob: People who block the sidewalk with their big-ass trucks. I came home from lunch and an asshat had parked in my driveway, right across the sidewalk. I called the cops, and they were on their way to tow him when asshat showed up. I chewed him out. But I wish he'd been towed.

Drivers who don't use their turn signal when I'm crossing the street.
lilacwine13
Drivers who don't use their turn signals, period.

Also, drivers who are so impatient to turn that they almost run me over while I'm crossing the street. I've had this happen twice, and the drivers thought I was the one with the problem.

More car-related cobs:

--Expensive repairs that will be done because I do not have the money for a down payment for a new car and I won't get a lot for a trade-in on my current one.
--Bike enthusiasts who can't understand why I can't just ride the sixteen miles to and from work every day and then ride another twelve miles to and from school because cars are horrible machines (never mind that riding in traffic scares me shitless and I have to dress up for work). I don't have a problem with bike riders, I just have a problem when I run into one who's obnoxious.
--Having to borrow money to fix the car because I don't have that sort of money lying around at this time of the month

I've decided that, especially on newer, high end cars, turn signals have become an option that most people decide not to buy, because surely they can't be that inconsiderate, right?

Cob: People that completely forget how to drive just because there are a couple inches of snow on the ground. This happens every damned year the first couple of times it snows, and it's just ridiculous. I don't know what's worse, the guy driving 20 in a 60 when the road is perfectly clear, or the guy flying by me on an ice/snow covered road just because he thinks this big 4x4 can do it. Newsflash: 4x4 = able to go, it does not mean that you can stop (in fact it's actually harder to stop due to extra weight). The only way I know how to sum it up, is so long common sense, we hardly knew ya.

What kills me about turn signals, is that they are right next to where your hands are!!! It's not like you have to reach up your fucking ass to get there (ooops, watch out for your headm ya douche bag).
