Dear Family,

How can all 4 of you have P.M.S (Pissy Mood Syndrome) at the same time?! I dare to say that for once, I'm excluded from the party. I'm having my own party. Fever, upset tummy, and sleeping all day. If you guys don't stop the snapping and yelling (I suspect it isn't as bad as I think but when you don't feel good, everything seems bad), I will give each and every one of you a personal invitation to MY party.

I know why this occured. Very busy weekend (for the umpteenth weekend in a row), endless rain, plans going wrong. Yeah, I can understand. I should probably be ashamed of myself for being amused by the 3 year old telling Daddy "You just don't understand me!"

Dear 4K,

*draws his sword*

Men of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers... I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the world of men fails! An hour of wolves, and shattered shields when the world of men comes crashing down! BUut it is NOT THIS DAY! This day we FIGHT! By all that you hold dear on this good earth; I bid you STAND! – MEN OF THE WEST!!

The Army of Men is on the march. We shall have him by nightfall.

Dear whomever:

OK, its official that I'm starting to panic now. I just want a job for fall & everything just keeps going the opposite way I want it to! I know I have till fall but I'm a bit nervous even still. I know there's always subbing but that's pretty unstable & I'd have to figure out what to do with the kids between running from the sub school to my kids school.
I just need a job. Not a huge paying job. Just a job. Just something that provides a steady paycheck. *Please!!!*

Dear client,

AAAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!! [flame] [flame]

This is what? The fourth or fifth data disk you have sent me in the last two months? Is there a reason the numbers for the prior, prior year keep changing? You know, the one we just filed a tax return for? The one I keep telling you not to touch? And, while we are here, why are you still changing last year's numbers? LEAVE THEM ALONE! We are now in 2006. Stop touching 2005!

There is absolutely NO REASON to change any numbers in any prior year. Especially amounts on cleared transactions. No! Just because you think you should have paid vendor X $Z, or received $Z from customer Y does not mean you can change the amount of a check or deposit that has already cleared the bank! STOP IT! And, no, (for the fifth time) I do not know any information about what you changed. You did it! You find it and fix it!

You are causing me to cuss and swear at work. I Do. Not. Do. That. I Do. Not. Like. That. So stop. Just stop.

Oh - and just because I have told you to stop messing with the numbers does not mean you can go in and NFBSK with the chart of accounts. Leave that alone too. It would be one thing if you were new at this, but you have been working at this firm for two years. You are now NFBSKing your own numbers. Your own books! Yes, I know the owner doesn't want to pay taxes, but I think I finally got through to him that he has to eventually pay and that he needs to stop messing with the numbers. That means you too! If I have been coming across as a downright NFBSK towards you, then stop changing things and I will go back to being nice liddle ole me.

Honestly. You are the accountant of the firm. You should know these things. Where the hell did you learn basic accounting from? 'Cause a first year student knows these things and I am starting to wonder. Gah. Basic skills should be a given-I am not enjoying teaching you how to do your job while trying to do mine in the time constraints your boss has given me when you keep changing everything. You want last years tax return now? Stop sending me new data.

Hatefully full of venom towards you,
Your firm's accountant.

PS - Stop calling me and e-mailing me Every.DAMN.Day. It is not cute. It is not funny. And it sure as hell does not make me want to work on your stuff any faster. Besides, I have other clients who are godsends compared to you who have been waiting longer and more patiently for their never-changed financials. They are first in line and you will just have to wait until I am done with them before I start your crap. You and your boss knew that he was going to apply for a loan and that he was going to need a tax-return for it - you had one friggin' year to get me 2004's info and 5 months to get me 2005. Giving me another new data disk last week means that his deadline of "Jan. 2006" means NFBSK to me.

----------------------------------------------

Dear boss,

Thank you for your support regarding this client. Thank you for hating him with the heat of a billion suns along with me. And thank you for understanding my anger and helping me find the humor in the daily calls/e-mails from him. Especially when the damn client pointed it out in his e-mails to me. Stupid.

Your loyal servant.

Not-so-dear-left leg,
Blood clots again huh?
And this time me with no insurance and no job.
I hate you so much. I have to go up to the hospital again and have an ultrasound. And then spend months on blood thinners, again.
Why? Why are you doing this again? I'm happy with my life. I was making progress with my life. And I finally found someone who loves me for who I am. That all has the potential to be ripped apart because of you.
All I can ask you now is to please not be too severe. I want to be able to come home tonight, not stay in the hospital. And I don't want a mess like the last time-just get better quickly. Please.

Would it help if you told that client that every time he changes his numbers he goes to the back of the line?

Dear weather,
Please, please, plase stay nice this weekend! I'd like to have a chance of getting out and enjoying myself...we're going to party on Sunday, and to watch fireworks next Monday. Please stay nice...it's almost JUNE!

Dear wall friends,

Please go away, for your chittering, while entertating to us humans, is driving our cats batty. How long will you be staying with us? I assume that you are a brood of racoons, and will be moving on, but I should like to have definitive move-out date, or else I should have to begin eviction proceedings.

Thanks,

Dear God,

So, um, wow. That was totally out of left field. Extraordinarily flattering. I'm not entirely sure what to do with this particular career opportunity 'cause of geography. If it'd been in the original location, there wouldn't even be a question. Now I'm a little stumped, but immensely intrigued.

Every time I think I have things figured out, eh? Boy, you do like to keep it interesting. Little guidance here, please?

Thanks,

Dear JB,

Please stop messing with my head!

First you wear your wedding ring, then you don't for several months.

Now you're wearing it again?!?

Would you please tell what I'm supposed to do with all these fantasies about you now that you're back off the market?

Or are you?

Tell me you're not wearing the ring to make me think you're off limits, because, dude, so not cool. You could just tell me you're not interested. I am a grown-up, you know.

Confusedly not yours,

Dear Neighbours

Why did you have to cut all your trees down? OK, the one that was damaging the house I can understand, but did you have to make the whole place look like a wasteland when everyone else in the area has lots of lovely trees? I know that it is your place, and you can do what you like with it, but seriously it is such a shame all those beautiful trees are gone.

Dear Phil'sGirl

Not that I've ever seen. If the PO comes out for visits, it's while I'm at work. The guy stands at the window and waits for me to get home, then leaves the window as I'm walking up to the porch door. No matter what time I get home! I just got home at 12:30, and there he was. *shudder* Maybe he developed OCD in jail and thinks everything has to be just right before he can go to bed. I don't know.

Dear Minstrel,

Rats.

Maybe a barky dog? Borrow one if you have to.

My neighbor's dog barks at anything that moves. She's a sweetie if you know her, but a snarly, barky dog lunging at the sight of him in the window...

Heck, that would scare me.

Dear chiot,
Seriously i wish you weren't working tomorrow, because then i could sleep while you went to the busiest shopping centre in town an hour before the shopes open to line up to buy that watch you want on sale*. I will have to be there around 8am or earlier to have any hope of getting it, it really sucks, and you owe me big time.
Loves you lots
Ange
* in his defence this watch is probaly usually over $100 and it's on sale for $19 but there is only one of this watch on sale for this price. This sale has all sorts of crazy prices such as cubic zirconia rings for $1,gold braclets for under $10, earrings for under $5, but only one of the items and it's only items that are in the one small window. It's mayhem and you have to stand in line and wait to be let in the store, if they only have 3 staff on, only 3 customers at a time get let in.

Dear self,

Get a grip. What you did last night was incredibly stupid, and you were damn lucky nothing went horribly wrong.

It might be time to think about stopping drinking. You might not be a raging alcoholic and it's not like you're a frequent drinker either, but too many bad things happen when you do have a few.

Think about it.

Dear self,

stop swearing. You know this will be a stressful couple of months' testing, so don't let it get to you. Dropping "Holy Sh1t!" once at your desk and again in a closed meeting room with one co-worker present probably isn't so bad. Dropping "Oh Crap!" on a conference call to Bangalore with two test leads and eight other testers, on the other hand, is embarrasingly unprofessional.

At least you didn't use the F-bomb.

Dear stupid Yahoo pop-up blocker,

I had a real witty post for Rantidote and when I hit "Preview post", I got an error on the page. So I disabled the pop-up blocker, and you got rid of my post! Grrrrr!

So here it is, probably not as witty as when I first wrote it:

Dear clinic,

Okay, I understand that for many reasons having to do with patient confidentiality you are not allowed to give test results over the phone. But my test was a spinal CT! No matter what the results, I don't care if anyone else, total strangers, the Canadian equivalent of the NSA, anyone, finds out what they are! There's nothing that can be found in a spinal CT that would expose nasty health secrets to the world at large!

Making me wait until the end of my work day, by which time the doctor I like has gone home and I have to deal with the one I really dislike, to find out if I have a herniated disc, a pinched nerve, or nothing at all it's all in my head, is utter torture. Much like the way my back has been feeling for two months. It doesn't help that I saw that CNN report on back surgeries yesterday and now I've got "spinal fusion" running through my head. Leaving a message on my machine saying "Dr. L would like to talk to you about the results." does NOTHING for easing my mind for the next six hours because it says to me that there's something to talk about.

Counting down,

Dear Elderly Relatives,

Stop lecturing me on the morals and obvious superiority that pervaded your childhood. I am not you.

I am not living in a small town where I can walk everywhere or just take the bus. There is no bus here and I wouldn't walk down some of these streets if I had the whole army to protect me. I know a car was a luxery for you, it is a necesity for me that I am constantly thankful for.

This is not 1900. Tattoos are not an embarrassment anymore. I will not be ashamed of anything I might tattoo on myself (I don't even have any tattoos and I haven't been hinting to them that I want them.)

I don't care that you had to choose between a husband and a career. I will have both, thank you. (I'm not even thinking about marriage right now.)

Getting a job is a lot more than just talking to the guy who owns the one shop in town. There are hundreds of people all trying to get the same jobs, it's a little more difficult for me.

-Your very annoyed young relative

Dear Anthem,

You suck. So you cover it, but you can't tell me who is authorized to do the procedure? Thanks soooooo much. *I* have called everywhere to find a place, and I have called customer service 3 times. It shouldn't be this hard! Now I have to either pay out of pocket or find some imaginary place that you do cover, since you can't tell me who you cover.

I am so glad I am switching to United in August! I hope you act on the complaint I filled with the CSR. I would write you a nasty letter if I could find out who to write it to.

BTW, your online member section, that is supposed to help in finding a provider, doesn't. If I am trying to find if an office is covered, why do I need to choose what their specialty is? I have no idea what is included in each category, and even when I picked 'Other' I still have to pick the specialty on the next page. What idiot designed this system?

Dear mother-in-law,

No, I won't let Andrew scream in the middle of the restaurant just because you think it's "cute" and you want your friend to hear him "talk to grandma". Don't get pissy with me when you get him all riled up and I take him outside so as not to disturb the restaurant full of people who would probably prefer not to listen to him screaming. I know this is a difficult concept for you, but you don't make the rules for my kid! My husband and I do! And one of our rules is "No screaming like a banshee in the middle of a nice restaurant, even if grandma wants you to."

Also, when my husband takes the baby away from the table to walk around and calm down a bit, you really don't have to rush to the rescue and take Andrew away from him. I realize he's not a woman, but believe it or not he's capable of caring for his child. And your comment the other day about what a great job he did "babysitting" while we went shopping really pissed us both off.

And a side note, if you want to give me parenting advice, it's going to have to come from a better source than Dr. James Dobson.
