Rant And Roll

Kinko's is a waste of space. Oh, excuse me, I mean FED EX Kinko's. Gee, what an original name. You guys at corporate must be creative geniuses. You must also be masterminds of staffing- staffing inept, grungy apes that is. I will never go to Kinko's again. I don't care if it is an emergency! The copies will just have to wait.

Yahoo Personals lies. They advertise "7 Days Free!" but really it is all a ruse to get you to sign up. Even if you cancel your subscription after 4 days, they still charge you the $19.95 for one month's membership. How is that right? It can't be right. Where are my free 7 days, damn it? I wrote them repeatedly but after receiving 3 emails that clearly indicated that no one had actually READ my emails, I gave up. Fuck it. Take the damn money. All you've got to offer me, Yahoo Personals, is a bunch of guys who write in capital letters, can't spell or who think that working out makes them a catch. Not to mention the guys that I have already gone out with that have profiles up. There are now six, count them- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6- guys on YP that I have already dated. That's just . . . lame.

I think I am punch drunk. At least, that is what some fella told me yesterday after I had worked 14 hours non-stop. When I am that tired, I make poor choices. But that my dears is another story entirely.

Tomorrow's the big day. Even though every muscle in my body is sore, I think tomorrow is going to be great. I will likely collapse after working from 4am to 8pm.

I'm impressed you have the bandwidth to post. Maybe the catharsis is worth the time expense.

Looking forward to hearing what the big day was all about...

Ugh. Kinkos. Don't get me started on them! I've had to bitch slap a few of those grungy idiots who work there myself! Oops. I mean "Fed Ex Kinkos" or whatever they calling themselves this week. They ticked me off so badly one time, I made them eat the $700 expense of the project my company had hired them to do. I will never again step foot in one of those locales. I feel your pain...

Good luck on the event tomorrow! Bring in lots of bucks!

I think you should take the Home Movie's swap, and I will take the 4am to 8pm shift for you. How's that sound?


P.S. Good job! You are really doing great things this weekend.

P.S.S. Don't go for the guys on YP that say that they work out. Go for the one's that say things like..."I am fairly laid back, but love a good adventure..." type guys...

You seem pretty saucy, i doubt the work-out guys could handle you. pick a metrosexual with a small car.

"... a bunch of guys who write in capital letters, can't spell or who think that working out makes them a catch."

Well, if ever there was an argument for developing writing skills, that's it. Gentlemen, work on your writing, spelling and punctuation. Otherwise, you could be Brad Pitt but come across as an obese deviant trolling the Internet. Conversely, you could be 90 living with a colostomy bag and yet come across as young, sprightly and debonair.

Thank you Ms. Sizzle. My writing blog has been languishing because I had run out of things to write about writing. Soon, soon I will toss something together on the advantages of writing skills.

(Other advantages? Education. I got a degree simply by bamboozling my way through essays and essay questions on exams.)

I am so with you on the kinko's thing I believe my life expectancy had droped to half having had to deal with them as a poor graphic arts student. Oh, how times they have f'ed up my projects that I worked hard on and had to pay them double, god for bid they admit they screwed up and give me my money back. The best is that they don't even know how to troubleshoot their own computers. I have done it for them and they still kept the clock ticking while I fixed it. Ok, enough bottom line is I agree with you.

as a former KINKOs employee..... I agree. But for the years I was employed in the graphic dept. in the three cities that I worked: College Station, Texas; Lincoln, Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas.... I stole a lot of paper, envelopes and a bunch of other cool shit! So I cannot really knock them too much :)

sue said...

It's already over, but I'm waiting with baited breath for the results... How was Sunday???

Kinkos. Well, I can't say anything. I don't use 'em. Will trust your review, however.

Yahoo Personals?... Words cannot describe you...or, obviously, them.
