Bitch and Moan Friday Meme


moan

I try not to bitch and moan, I mean what good does it do other than to vent a little? I have a good life, I try not to focus on the not so perfect aspects of it because…well because no one’s life is perfect and there’s a lot of people who have worse problems than the trivial things I worry about but today I’m downright angry and I fully intend on taking advantage of a good bitch and moan session. So thanks to Fairy Blog Mother’s invention of the Bitch and Moan meme here it is, things that really got under my skin this week…well today actually.

Plastic Surgeons: There is a plastic surgeon that advertises their practice on the radio here, this alone ticks me off. If you want plastic surgery go for it, you know it’s there and the rest of us who don’t care to get nipped and tucked don’t want to hear reasons why we should. We made our choice, deal with it. As if this wasn’t bad enough as I walked in to the gym locker room today I find a flyer from this very same plastic surgeon taped on to a locker – now that is just wrong. Using your advertising to prey on women who already feel insecure – because who doesn’t in a locker room? Pushing them over the edge of insecurity and forcing them to consider going under the knife because they don’t measure up to unrealistic media portrayals of what we should look like or even that Amazonian woman who never fails to strut in to the locker room as you stand there half naked. I have no doubt that plastic surgeons have a purpose and make some people very happy but the bottom line in my opinion? 1) Don’t target your ads to people who are trying to become healthier and live a healthy lifestyle, in fact don’t advertise at all because 2) If you were a good plastic surgeon with a great reputation you would NEVER consider advertising on the radio or via a flyer strategically placed in a gym locker room.

I threw the flyer away – how do you like that Dr. Schwarz?

The state of affairs: I am sick of all these whackjobs shooting other people. I question whether I even dare have my own kids in this country because people are going insane and they are sure as hell not going to take me or my family with them. Okay so this is an unfair statement, people snap in other countries too but a significant number of these crazies come from this country in particular. No, I’m not picking on anyone, just stating the facts as I see them. IN MY OPINION more kids need to be disciplined, not given what they want when they want it and they need to be better educated and have better healthcare – no, this doesn’t mean that I’m talking about YOUR kids. Parents need to be screened, approved to be parents – we screen people before they adopt a pet don’t we?  These things I am certain would decrease the amount of spoiled self centered a-holes who think they have the right to take other peoples lives because they are so unsatisfied with theirs. There are hundreds of thousands of people in this world who experience hardship, who are unsatisfied with their lives or their choices, who feel hard done by, who are sick or have sick relatives and yet they choose to suck it up, make a change and move on so why is it that certain people feel that their suffering warrants going to hell and taking innocent peoples lives in the process? I grow increasingly disillusioned by the mardy nature of anti-disciplinarians who feel that coddling a child when they step out of line will result in a well balanced adult. Everyone needs to understand consequences and a little fear of these consequences makes a hell of a difference. Perhaps if more children were exposed to those who live without so many of the luxuries they have – FOOD for one, they would not grow up to be so self righteous.

There you have it. I am not an angry person, nor am I one prone to bitching and moaning but today I did, deal with it.

    I love this meme..and it is more than just venting. It is also good to get the public thinking about all these things so hopefully the guilty parties may wisen up. Great post.

    I agree with you on the discipline thing too. I had a good spanking every once and a while and I turned out pretty good. My daughter told me one time that she was going to turn me in to social services because I was going to spank her, so I packed her grandma bag so that when social services picked her up they could take her. She asked what I was doing and I told her….she took the spanking.

    Since they took the right to spank, kids have taken over the world and crime rates have gone up. It’s sad. I don’t want to get on that soap box though…..

    Got your link from Annette’s blog….

    Here’s mine if you really want to listen to a rant fest…LOL

    I’d be pissed about the plastic surgeon ads too. Women today have enough insecurities, we don’t need crazy surgeons pushing the idea of surgery on everyone. Like you said, if you want it…you know where to find it.

    Thanks for bitching and moaning this week! 😀

    I’m visiting from Annette’s blog… I am with you on the plastic surgeon’s advertising… I so hate that! With teenage girls having so many eating disorders and young women mutulating their bodies to try and conform, it is the last thing that we need.
    I also posted in my B&M about people shooting other people. It just sucks!!
