Monday Mayhem Ticked Off

Join Us for Monday Mayhem

1. What ticked you off last week while you were on your way somewhere?

I got a couple cancellations again from acquaint-a-friends (an acquaint-a-friend is someone who is more than an acquaintance but not quite yet a friend. yes, i just made the word up) about SAME DAY Autism Events. Now, I know we are all busy and its hard to have children and still honor commitments. However, I have people inboxing me on facebook, emailing me, and instant messaging me stating how fortunate we are to have all the events in our area we have. I totally agree. It's frustrating because eventually other groups and businesses are going to stop providing us with these luxuries if we don't show up! Duh!!! Out of our group their is only one mom that I understand for not being as active. Her daughter has more social issues and is low functioning. But even she took a morning off to attend the CPR event with me. I'm starting to think some of these moms are getting a bit spoiled by how much our City has to offer.

2. Who in your house really ticked you off and how did they do it?

I let a woman and her son stay with me a few days while they were waiting for their apartment to be ready for move in. It turned into 2 1/2 weeks!!! She borrowed money and didn't pay it back on payday. Which really screwed me up because we just make it by the end of the month. I should have never loaned money that I didn't have. She and her son by the 2nd week started being rude to us. What the heck lady??? Your staying in my house and you just change the channel while Iz is watching a football game?? I was really stressing on how to get her out. Her "so called" apartment never opened. Well last Friday after my workout I usually catch up on my t.v. shows. Come to find out she and her son had deleted and stopped MOST OF MY DVR SHOWS!!! Are you kidding me? I told her she had to move by Sunday evening. Moral of the story... you messed with my money, messed with my son's football game, stressed me out, but never ever mess with my DVR. Oh yeah, and don't take my kindness for a weakness.

3. What politician or political event really ticked you off last week?

Michelle Obama, 
whom i liked better than most P.W.'s,
but she pissed me off!! 
Eh, what can you do... 
you gotta vote for the best of the worst!!
(see Question 6)

4. Tell us what ticked you off on TV last week.

I dunno my shows were deleted!!!!!

5. What ticked you off online last week?

Blog Bullying

People attacking, bullying, degrading, and disrespecting each other about Vaccine/No Vaccine cause of Autism. Yes it becomes obnoxious a million comments later. 

6. What celebrity ticked you off last week and how?

The Women who "claim" to care... The Women whom could have really made a true difference at the 2010 Womens Conference in Long Beach. 

I would NEVER purchase tickets for the Womens Conference here in Long Beach. In a city that holds so many low-income and single parent families why wouldn't you provide a way for us to attend? Or at least a way to Volunteer for admission? IT'S OUR CITY YOUR IN!!! 

I do appreciate the 5k walk for Alzheimers free event. But your here three days... are you kidding me... SHAME ON YOU OPRAH, MICHELLE OBAMA, AND MARIA SHRIVER, and any other Celebrities & Politicians that spoke at The Women's Conference. Now get out of our city and let us do what we do best... help each other

I know I am going to piss a lot of people off but I really can't stand Oprah.

7. Tell us something food related that really ticked you off.

I gave the kid a bath. Got him dressed for school. Turned my head, turned back again and he was covered head to toe in Mrs. Butterworth's Syrup. I didn't even get a pic because the bus was coming in 20min. and he was DEFINITELY going to school after that stunt!!

It's such a shame that people take advantage of others. I'm so sorry you had to go through that, but yay you for getting strong and getting her the heck out of your apartment. I have a lot of not-so-nice words for people like that!!

This was fun. And funny. And sad.

You sure are a great advocate.

I hope Oprah reads your post; I think she would want to know you feel that way.
