Dear Self,

Will you just stop? If you keep spinning convoluted meleodramas out of thin air, not only will you be even less pleasant to be around but no doubt you'd be dead of a heart attack by the age of thirty.

Dear owner of the building we had a photoshoot in on Sunday -

Lady, the next time you tell us that we have the entire building to ourselves all day, MEAN IT!!! We are nude/lingerie models. We do not appreciate having the maintenence crew, the cleaning crew, the interior decorating crew, a bridal party, a band, and your 9 year old son all come running in on us at various times during the afternoon!!!!

Dear Z,
You are a dear friend; in fact I think I can safely say DogMonkey and I both think of you almost as family. BUT: What the Hell is going on with you? Some of the phone calls we're getting (by the way, why are they still coming here and not your new number? Iguess it's just as well now that you haven't changed your contact info, since it looks like you're moving again) make me a little nervous. And now this happens...on one hand, I'd like to know what's going on so I could stop imagining horrible things, on the other I'm scared I really don't want to find out.

Dear woman in Dodge SUV whose license plate I remember,

It's a MERGE. A ZIPPER EFFECT. So when I'm in the lane to the right, that will end, which requires me to merge into the left, common courtesy is that you let me in front of you, if the car in front of you has let the person before ME in the right lane come over in front of him.

But no. Instead, you practically run me off the road. Never mind that I was already a little agitated with something else in my life. Then YOU have to use your superior "I have a gas guzzling SUV, so NFBSK you, biotch!" skilz and refuse to let me through. I was not happy...

-The girl in the little red Corolla


Dear person in the white SUV at the 4-way stop sign-

"Right of Way" means that the person that approaches the stop sign first gets to go the direction they're intending to go first. It does NOT mean "Big white SUV is better than little red Corolla, and therefore has right of way"...and nearly hit me!

And to make things even nicer, it was just as I was calming down from nearly being driven off the road and getting pissed off with someone. Thanks, asshat!

Dear people with runny noses:

I just discovered that putting cocoa butter (Palmers) on the tissue-abused end of your nose is helpful. The fragrance free variety doesn't sting...yet. It isn't as sticky as vitamin E. It has helped my Rudolph-red nose a bit.

I thought I would pass it on. No, I don't own stock in the company. I am sick & thought I would pass on some helpful info.

Happy Cold & Flu Season!

Dear Curad:

I really like these extreme length finger wrap bandages, I just have a few requests. First, would it be possible to get them in larger quantities? With two bandage changes a day I'm going through a box in about a week and a half. Second, could you come up with different cross marketing? I've now got three of these little bottles of men's shaving balm and I'm not quite sure what to do with them. They may end up being stocking stuffers. Third, related to the previous request, could you keep in mind that there are wome out there that are hard on their hands two?

Thanks

Dear Mr. S,

I hope you're late because you and D keep saying, "just a few more minutes, maybe we'll get one," and not because you're busy dressing a boar. I know wild boar are a dangerous nuisance out here, and I am glad you're having a good time with a buddy, but I so don't want a freezer full of gamey pork chops.

Please don't wake me up when you get in. Especially if your outing was successful.

Love Ya,

Dear Husband,

You were awake when I got home. You saw how I struggled to get my boots off my swollen feet. You watched me walk up the steps so slowly, so painfully that the cats actually came down to the landing to see what was taking me so long.

You saw my red, sore feet.

You heard the pain in my voice when I mumbled out the phrase: "I got paid today..."

So, the next time you act like an asshat, I have absolute permission to tell you to "F*ck off" without you getting pissed off at me.

~Your wife
****

Dear Anyone,

Please don't tell me "you'll get used to it" when you hear about how much pain my feet are in from the standing I do at work. No, my feet will not get used to it. I have tendonitis, bursitis and arthritis. I will not get used to that pain. It isn't like I'm working out and overdid a little. The "itis" family of pain is chronic pain. It will never go away. It will only get worse. But, I do what I have to do for my kids.

I have a new hero now.

Signed, ouchy.
****

Dear Grandma Viola,

I've said it before, but I'm saying it again. You're my hero. How you lived every day with this level of pain is beyond me. And not only did you live with this pain, you never took it out on anyone else. I try to hold myself up to your level. The only comfort I can think of is that on the "Other Side", you are no longer in pain.

When I get "over there", we'll have a foot race. You'll have to wait though, I've got stuff to do here for a long while.

~Love, Patty

Dear Tivo,

I hate you. I hate you I hate you I hate you. I thought, "oh, I've got 40 minutes before bed! Plenty of time to fix that programming screwup from yesterday!" ha ha ha ha, now everything is worse than ever! Then you freeze, requiring several restarts and frantic chat sessions with your real owner (is it that you miss her? me too, but I don't make your life hell over it). Now I've had to pull the whole entertainment center halfway across the living room (lucky you it's on wheels) because you decided you can't use internet, you need a phone. And now you decide you can't use the phone, either? WTF?? I hate you!

Me

Dear Tivo,

Thanks for making my decision easy. When my roommate left you with me, at first I was totally enamored with you. Although i couldn't afford you myself, I wondered how I would get by when she takes you back. Now I know-- I'll be happier when you're gone. I'm getting pretty close to unplugging you and not using you even though you're here, you are so frustrating to use. You're worse than the Sallie Mae website. And that is saying something.

Dear Sallie Mae website,

Did you hear that? You suck. Don't think I'm forgetting about you just because Tivo also sucks.

Dear Frog_Feathers,

I'm sorry you're in such pain. I can't completely relate, but if it's at all similar, I have problems at the end of the day in Florida when it's rained and I have two flights of stairs to go up because of my knees (I'm in agony). And working at the Disney Store is also doing a number, because I keep crouching and standing repeatedly, and there's a point where Aleve just doesn't do it.

Dear Coworkers,
Is it really so hard to just leave my workspaces the way they were? It's so, so frustrating to come back after being out sick and find everything rearranged. It makes me feel horribly unappreciated. If you think I'm too messy or you want things arranged differently please discuss it with me instead of waiting for me to leave and then changing everything behind my back. If you are just nervous, ticcy tidiers, please apply your neuroses to your own damn desk.

Dear Strongly Disliked Coworker,
You've worked here for far to long to think that that was the correct way to do it. I'm not sure if you're stupid, lazy, or an intractable contrarian, but I've just about had enough of your crap.
No love whatsoever,
ThistleS

Dear second interpreter* in Class I Hate,

Turn taking does not mean to gain possession of a start. It means to alternate the occasion in which persons will perform a specific duty. For instance, if you and a friend are playing a board game, and the friend gets to go first, they are the one to start the game. You can not seize the start from your friend. You will have your turn after your friend completes his/her move, then your friend will go when you've completed your action.

So why the hell did you sign "start" "take" when the instructor said "turntaking"?

Now I know why L and C can't stand you as an interpreter.

Dear day so far...

Please get better. It started with me breaking the coffee carafe and having no coffee. Then a fight with a friend. Then I went to the store... no coffee carafes. Ok, fine, I'll make a run out to evil Wal-Mart later, I'll get a few groceries now and stop by Starbucks. Place groceries in the van- pop carton breaks and spills cans all over. I get my only-at-hubbys-payday cup of $5 coffee (quad shot venti mocha) and it promptly gets spilled all over the car and my pants.

Dear Pixiechic and NewZer0,

Just to give you an update, I drove really really well. DH thinks that I could pass the driving test- except for maneuverability. No hard stops, turned well, and was able to park perfectly the first time I tried.

We think that it is partially that I have grown out of my anxiety, and partially that I can't drive with my mom. She stresses me out. For some reason she wanted the music off in the car, when I had never been in a car without music until that point.

I plan to be able to drive to all of the Christmas celebrations, and I think I really will be able to do it.

Thanks for the encouragement and the good vibes (and the hug). I know I'm not alone in getting my license late, but it sure feels like it. It's hard when your sister, who is 5 years younger, gets her license before you.

Thanks again,
Raven Waift

Congrats, Raven!

I totally understand not being able to drive with certain people. When I was learning, I never went with my mom by mutual agreement-we both knew she'd panic the minute I did the smallest thing wrong, and we're not very patient with each other. I still don't drive with her, and I've been driving for over 12 years now.

Dear B at Hubby's work,

You will never know how much we love you! You have done little things for the kids through the years but this takes the cake. I don't know if you knew we were having a rough year or if it is just coincidence but because of you 3 little kids are guaranteed to have an awesome Christmas.

Christmas and birthdays are pretty much the only time the kids get toys with no strings attached so it is a really big deal for them. I know you said you didn't want us making a big deal out of it. But to us, it is a big deal.

Love,
Us

Dear D, (my manager)

OK, I'm not sure if I've done something wrong or upset you in some way, or perhaps am just the easiest xmas temp to get hold of, but I'm getting a bit sick of doing the most menial tasks for you all day. Yesterday you put me on the fitting rooms for the better part of 2 hours when I was rota'ed for 1 hour later in the day. You clearly wanted me over there for some reason, as the woman who was scheduled to be over there was sent back to the tills by you, and I was shipped back over to the fitting rooms. Today, you had me manually editing flyers for virtually my whole shift, while manning the fitting room at the same time. I really hope this isn't going to be a long term arrangement,as I really enjoy working behind the tills, and am good at it. Plus, when you plonk me on the menial jobs for hours at a time, I can't help but feel worthless and wonder what I completed my degree for. I also wonder if you've got a degree. However, thanks for not making me stay late tonight. 3 nights in a row would have been a bit much.

sincerely
The confused and annoyed employee.

Dear music at work,

Ack, could you please just go away? I swear you are designed to be morale sapping for the employees, and, well, customers aren't in there that long! Plus, the adverts, particularly for the restaurant ("Are you tired from all that shopping?") are very wearing after the first few times you hear them. Why can't we just have quiet background music that's easily ignored?? Please?

signed,
Good taste.

Dear town centre marketing bods (btw, this is one I may well send, but not in this form)

ARGH!! When professional promotional posters go up in a public area, don't you think it would be a good idea to get someone who grasps the rudiments of English grammar to proofread it? I was initally startled but then very angry when I noticed one of the said posters advertised late night openings - Thursday's till 9 pm. Strangely, this mistake isn't on your website literature,so granted, it may just be a printing mistake, but still, bad grammar is one thing that really gets to me, and because I was sat opposite, I couldn't ignore that glaring error. Please sort it out, or better yet, employ me as a proofreader! I sadly notice this all too often.
Signed,
An English Graduate.

Dearest G,
I'm going to miss you the next couple of days. Love you loads and sorry if I was a bit snappy today - as you know, it's been a very rough day.
All my love
me.

Dear self,
Just remember what you said the other day about taking it all one day, even one hour at a time. You're almost halfway through, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. You can do it!
love
me

Dear kitties,

I know it's hard to understand, but not everything Mommy does in the living room is intended to make things a more fun playground for you. I know I have fun wires stretched everywhere, but these are not for kittens to chew on, jump over, pounce on, or even run around under! Mommy is kind of stressed, so please work with me, OK? I'm sorry I had to lock you in the office, but I'll let you out as soon as I can unplug the Tivo and move the entertainment center back against the wall.

Love,
Mommy

Dear Tivo,

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Almost done! I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but thank you for behaving tonight.

Me

Dear Raven Waift,

Congratulations!

Just to give you an update, I drove really really well. DH thinks that I could pass the driving test- except for maneuverability. No hard stops, turned well, and was able to park perfectly the first time I tried.

We think that it is partially that I have grown out of my anxiety, and partially that I can't drive with my mom. She stresses me out. For some reason she wanted the music off in the car, when I had never been in a car without music until that point.

I plan to be able to drive to all of the Christmas celebrations, and I think I really will be able to do it.

Thanks for the encouragement and the good vibes (and the hug). I know I'm not alone in getting my license late, but it sure feels like it. It's hard when your sister, who is 5 years younger, gets her license before you.

Thanks again,
Raven Waift

Dear Raven Waift,

I'm glad you had a good time of it! When you go in to take your license let me know so I can send lots of good vibes your way. [Big Grin] I'm glad your DH is supportive, I bet that helps a LOT with your confidence. So when are you going to go driving again?

Signed,

Dear Rooster,

I'm sorry I yelled at you on the phone. I really am. It's not your fault that the Hatchling imitates your fake cough nor is it your fault that he fake coughs for attention. It not your fault that the fake cough sounds identical to the 'I'm about to be sick' cough.

I am really sorry.


Dear Xmas Shoppers,

Thank you for stopping and looking at me in disgust as my son threw his lunch up everywhere. Thank you to the teen who exclaimed "She's not going to clean it up!" as I walked over to let someone know what had happened. Thank you to the woman who gasped "She's going to leave him in those wet clothes!" as I notified someone about the mess. You've all just reminded me why I hate people.


Dear Granny Brigade (before anyone says anything, they were wearing t-shirts with that on it),

Thank you. Thank you so much for your understanding and kindness. A simple "Oh it's okay honey, we've all been there" would have been enough. You didn't have to buy a washcloth, two towels & a romper. You also didn't need to give me hugs.

Thank you thank you thank you. I just wish you'd have let me do something special for you.

ChickyBee

Dear Pixiechic,
I want to go driving tomorrow, but that is unlikely. DH works 3rd shift, so if we go in the morning it is late evening for him. He generally works more than 8 hours, and it is hard to sleep in the daytime.

The next step is highway driving, which will probably be Friday. My exams are done Friday, so I think we are getting Donatos before our D&D game.

I want to go driving now- I am so excited.

The only real issue is driving for long periods of time. Normally when I am stressed I am able to calm myself, but I can't when driving. The stress just builds until I can't concentrate. I just need practice.

I'll definately let people know when I go in for the test- and I'll have a LAM post when I pass.

Raven Waift


Brillo Bee and lavender blue,
Thanks so much. It makes me so happy that people really are happy for me. It is really hard to learn to drive when you are as high strung as I am, and I really appreciate all the encouragement.

Thanks again,
Raven Waift
