Rants #11

You know what really grinds my gears? When the music industry decides that they are going to take a rap song and mix that in with a perfectly good rock song. WHAT ARE THEY THINKING??? Granted Likin Park and Jay-Z was not that bad, but now they are adding rap to Greenday! What is up with that? It does not make the song better! In fact, it makes the song worse. I really don't see why they do this. Have rappers just ran out of things to rap about that they are going to take one of their olders songs and mix it in with a rock song? Have they really lost all of their creativity? Have they finally gotten sick of rapping about the same thing? Thats another thing that grinds my gears. Why most of the rap music that is popular here in the states is all about drugs, sex, women. RAP ABOUT SOMETHING THAT ISN'T DEGRADING TO WOMEN! I'm not saying all rappers do this, I am just talking about the really popular songs. I don't see why they feel the need to refer to women as thier bitch and ho. WOMEN ARE PEOPLE TOO!!

To the first part of my rant here is my advice, DON'T MIX PERFECTLY GOOD ROCK SONGS WITH RAP. IF THE RAPPERS CANNOT THINK OF ANYTHING NEW TO RAP ABOUT LET THEM NOT HAVE ANYTHING NEW TO RAP ABOUT. AND DON'T MESS UP THE ROCK MUSIC.

To the second part of my rant here is my advice, STOP DEGRADING WOMEN AND RAP ABOUT SOMETHING THAT WILL HAVE A POSITIVE INFLUENCE ON PEOPLE. YOU KNOW YOUR MUSIC INFLUENCES PEOPLE AND YET YOU REFER TO WOMEN IN A FOWL MANNER AND ALSO TALK ABOUT SHOOTING UP PEOPLE AND TAKING DRUGS! STOP THAT AND MAYBE THERE WOULD BE MORE PEACE IN THE WORLD INSTEAD OF VIOLENCE.

DISCLAIMER: I realize that other genres of music talk about the same thing as the rap music I am refering to up in my rant and the message/advice applies to them also. I also realize that not all rap music raps about the stuff mentioned in my rant and I am not refering to them.

You know what really grinds my gears? People who think that they know everything WHEN THEY DON'T. They sit there thinking they are oh so smart thinking they know everything about everything. And then when you try to tell them they are wrong they get all offended and angry at you. Hello people you are not the smartest people in the world, you dont know everything, SO STOP THINKING YOU DO! You are a human, you have your strengths and your weaknesses. You are not good at everything and you are not bad at everything. Find those strengths and use those, don't try to act as though you know everything. Also it really annoys me when people who think they know everything and never admit to being wrong don't check their damn so called "sources" of information. NOT EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE INTERNET IS CORRECT SOME OF IT IS, YES WRONG. Just because you read it on the internet somewhere or you heard it from someone does not, I repeat, DOES NOT make it true. And for God's freakin sake let some other people give some freaking information out sometimes and don't always try to argue with them!

And that is what really grinds my gears.

You know what really grinds my gears? The school system that decided that it was ok for construction to be taking place during school hours. What were they thinking? For one thing, the noise is distracting as hell. There I am sitting in class trying to take a test or do my work, yes I do work, and all of a sudden *BAM! CLANG!* the construction workers are hitting the ceiling and what sounds like the pipes and I lose all of my concentration. Then the smell of what I am told is some tar liks stuff. Have you ever smelled it? It is the worst. And its bad enough it smells really bad, but you can taste it also. It makes you want to choke, it does choke you up and makes you sick. You would think the school system of grand PG County, Maryland would know all of this and have the work done during the summer, but no. They are too busy trying to find a new Superintendent since the last one decided to embezzle money. So now, we are pretty much going to have to deal with the smell that chokes you up and the sound that keeps you from concentrating. My advice is to the school system. THINK BEFORE YOU SEND CONSTRUCTION WORKERS TO WORK ON CONSTRUCTION DURING THE SCHOOL DAY. YOU KNOW THE KIDS ARE GOING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE NOISE AND THE SMELL. SO NEXT TIME YOU DECIDE TO DO THIS, USE YOUR BRAINS AND THINK A LITTLE.

You know what really grinds my gears? Morning substitute bus drivers. They think that just because you have riddent the bus all this year you are to know the route. HELLO! ITS MORNING! 6:30 IN THE MORNING! Do you really think I am awake at that hour? Do you really think I stay awake every morning for an hour long bus ride just to know the route? NO! I am sleeping. Its the morning. Thats what the morning is for. To sleep. Not to sit awake memorizing something that isnt even my job. Hell, its your job. You drive the bus, you get paid. Unless you are gonna pay me to tell you the bus route I am going to sleep every morning. They even give you a little piece of paper with directions. So what if someone telling you the way is faster? Learn to be patient. And if you dont like that then quit your job. As long as I am getting picked up at 6:30 in the morning I am going to be sleeping on the bus ride. My advice to you, GET OVER THE FACT THAT I DONT KNOW THE ROUTE AND READ THE DAMN PAPER THEY PROVIDE FOR YOU!

You know what really grinds my gears? Teachers who teach that it was all Germany and Austria-Hungary's fault for the start of WWI. Do they not comprehend what they are teaching us?? Do they not look at the information provided?? I really dont get why everyone blames Germany and Austria-Hungary. For starters, Serbia was not going to give up Princip (sp), they guy that shot and killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife. All the Austrian-Hungarians wanted was to get the guy that killed their soon to be leader. Serbia wont give the dude up so they declare war. We all know America and any other country would have done the same thing. Then Germany's all like "We have the Austrian-Hungarian's back" Russia gets pissed off about that so they get into it. Tell me, how is all of this Austiria-Hungary and Germany's fault? If the President or the Queen of England were killed we'd want revenge and if we didnt get to kill the guy that did it, we'd go to war. Its almost like, if the Germans are involved it must be their fault. Well news flash people, JUST BECAUSE THE GERMANS ARE INVOLVED ITS NOT THIER FAULT!

It also grinds my gears when I say all of this to the teacher and he looks at me like Im stupid. And I even asked the teacher why it is that Germany and Austria-Hungary is blamed and he didnt even answer my question. Dude if you are gonna teach something be able to back up what you to or dont even bother.

You know what really truly grinds my gears? When people are awake and cheery and happy really early in the morning. Its only 7:45 in the morning, why in gods name are you so awake and cheery with a giant smile on your face looking at me. We all know that I am a bitch in the morning. I dont wake up until around noon, if then. I am a night person, not a day person. I dont bother you when you are sleeping at night, so why do you bother me in the morining. Its not like I havent given you any warning about how I am in the morning. I tell you all the time, so listen when I tell you. It is not a good idea to call me "loser", "meany", or any other kind of name when I am tired. I will get mad at you and yell at you. I have said it before, I AM A BITCH IN THE MORNING! I dont mind if you call me names or make fun of me when I am awake, just dont do it when I am dead tired. Also in the morning, when I just get to school, my brain is not functioning properly, therefore I do not have the ability to pay attention to more than one person or thing, so dont get on my case if I dont acknowledge your presence as soon as I get there. I cannot multitask that early in the morning, its amazing I can even hold a steady conversation. Im not doing anything to be mean, its just the way my brain works in the morning, so dont get on my case about it. You all know all of this already so my advice to you is this:LISTEN TO ME WHEN I TELL YOU THAT I AM A BITCH IN THE MORINING AND DONT DO ANYTHING TO AGGRAVATE ME THEN ALL WILL BE FINE!

Girls and Bathrooms: You know what really grinds my gears? The girls in my school. Do they lack the ability to flush a toilet? Seriously. Everytime I walk in to use the bathroom, there is always a toilet or two that is not flushed. WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT? Where they never tought the Flush the Toilet skill? Did there parents never think it important enough to teach them? I cant imagine what college will be like for them. There they are in the dorm room and they go to the bathroom that is shared by the floor and they dont flush. Now that will be tragic. They will be laughed at by everyone. *sigh* Even if their parents did teach them how to flush the toilet, why dont they practice this very useful skill? If they dont want to touch the flusher thing with there hands, there are ways to get around that. Use your damed foot if you have too. And if you are a nonflusher, dont even start to complain about how dirty the school is, it is your fault too.

So my advice to you all:FLUSH THE DAMNED TOILET!
