Rants Week 4.

Hello ranters. How is everyone? I am currently sat in my sitting room, blogging and watching Home Alone. Life is good.

So here are the FB Rants from yesterday.

Here are the stats:

  1. 124 comments
  2. 29 likes
  3. 26 Ranters
  4. 2 new Rant Virgins.


  1. People who don’t know the rules. STAND ON THE RIGHT YOU NIPPLES!
  2. British people who use American spellings. Its ‘mum’ not ‘mom.’
  3. I say it again and I’m afraid this is a long one………….. People who talk on speaker phone on public transport. I am sad to have to bring this up again as the message of Rants is clearly not ridding the world of these annoying plonkers fast enough. So, to those who blatantly continue to flaunt the rules….STOP IT! I have no urge to listen to you shouting into your phone and to some idiot replying to you. The function of speaker phone is to allow us to multi task. It allows us to change nappies, wash floors, watch TV when on hold to mobile phone companies, SKY TV or the bank. So we can continue our lives to the glorious Muzak soundtrack (Flower Duet sung by the fat/blind/deaf sob story who won X Factor) and still not miss our place in the queue. It is not to have discussions about your dinner options on the bus. No one else wants to hear your conversation.
  4. When you buy jeans off the internet that are meant to make you look thin. But they don’t. And you can’t be arsed to take them back. So you wear them. And feel fat. And hate yourself.
  5. Glitter and sequins….they are all over my house at the moment.


THE RANTS. Rants in BOLD are reappearances of previous rants.

  1. When you order something from Amazon which you think is the size it looks in the photograph, but when it arrives, it is actually in miniature.

  7. People who try to sell you something but stubbornly avoid telling you the price.
  8. People who ask what you are doing at a certain time, without telling you why they are asking. Most applicable to people trying to book you for gigs on the cheap.
  9. When people accuse you of being chauvinistic or a feminist when your difference of opinion has nothing to do with gender.
  10. Companies that change something and claim it is to improve your user experience. It is not about my experience it is about your insurance.
  11. When people ask what you did at the weekend….not because they care but so they can tell you what they did.
  12. When a company phones you up and asks you security questions. I don’t know who you are. YOU phoned ME. Maybe I should be asking YOU some security questions.
  13. When you fancy someone and they hate you.
