A Million Businesses – Nobody Worth Referring To

Posted by idawrites on April 13, 2010 in Business, Rant |

I never thought I’d see the day when NOBODY “knows somebody” locally that they would dare send their friends and family to.  Yet, here I am.  Over the course of the last several years, I’ve had a need for dozens of different service providers in our area and haven’t been able to find one solid […]


OH! My Bad!

Posted by idawrites on January 27, 2010 in Rant |

Have you ever seen a more irritating, poke-your-eyes-out-with-a-stick, vein-throbbing-in-your-forehead phrase in all your life?  MY BAD. I have teenagers.  They used to be children.  They used to say “Oops.  I’m sorry.” when they screwed up or forgot to do a chore or stepped on someone’s toe.  Not anymore though.  Now it’s MY BAD. DUDE, I […]


I am not responsible for your child!

Posted by idawrites on January 25, 2010 in Children, Rant |

Since starting middle school 2 1/2 years ago, Sierra has had a friend whose mother just refuses to be responsible for.  It never fails that if there is an event at school (or THIRTY MILES FROM SCHOOL) that this child is participating in, I will get the following phone call: “Mommy, can we give Nikia a […]


You think the Sock Monster is bad? He’s got nothing on this guy…

12… twelve… TWELVE!  That is the number of travel mug lids in my kitchen cabinet.  No mugs.  Just lids.  I am not kidding! I have no idea where they go, or how they’re getting there.  Obviously there are multiple meanings to the term “travel mug”.  I never dreamed it meant they’d be traveling alone… and […]


Word of Mouth is only as good as the mouth it’s coming out of

Posted by idawrites on January 4, 2010 in Business, Rant, Reviews |

Dear Dave Ramsey, The endorsements that come out of your mouth are bullshit at its finest.  Which is a shame, because your real message is amazing and changes lives.  I believe in your financial advice… and until I found out how WRONG I was, I believed in your famous Endorsed Local Providers. After hearing you […]


Get the hell out of my way so I can spread some Christmas Cheer!

Posted by idawrites on December 21, 2009 in Rant |

Dear Asshole in the SUV, I would just like to take a moment to THANK YOU for providing my 16 year old daughter a Valuable Driving Experience this weekend.  You see, if not for you deciding that her RIDICULOUS adherence to local traffic law was incredibly offensive to you and completely unnecessary, she wouldn’t have […]


Of course I’m NOT tipping you!

Posted by idawrites on December 19, 2009 in Rant |

Don’t you just love how even the fast food places have tip jars on the counter now?  Why the fuck would I tip you for putting bread and cheese on a bun and wrapping it up?  Isn’t that why your boss pays you to be there?   And yes, I know working fast food sucks.  It […]


Stop letting your children dress like hookers

Posted by idawrites on December 18, 2009 in Children, Rant |

It’s finally the end of the semester for the kids. Of course, this means that I’ve spent more of my evenings at their schools watching performances than I have spent at home. As if that isn’t enough to make me cranky, I also get to see all of these tweens/teens running around dressed as though […]


Just 5 Fucking Minutes!

Posted by idawrites on December 16, 2009 in Children, Rant |

As much as I would love for it to be different, I’m a working mom. I’d love to bake and clean and do all of my errands while there aren’t dozens of (or 3) kids under my feet all the damned time. But, that’s not my life. I leave the house at 7:15 AM and […]


Turn Off the News and Fix Your Attitude

Posted by idawrites on February 26, 2009 in economy, Jobs, Rant |

It’s not that hard.  Reach out and turn off the television or the radio, and close your news websites.  I’ve gone into my Feed Reader for the last week and just hit “Mark All as Read” after reading the subject lines of the blog entries.  I’m SO tired of hearing about the “crisis” and the […]
