The Friday Rant! Vent Your Displeasures Here...

Vent your displeasures here

Alrighty folks, Let 'er rip! Fill up the comment section below with your troubles.

Just keep it clean and no name calling, business or personal.

My rant this week is about football commissioner Roger Goodell. You say that you want to keep the game safe, and free from the worst injuries if possbile, but after former commissioner Tagliabue basically stated that you were wrong in the Saints bounty case you let your feelings step in and now want to discuss lengthening the regular season and the playoffs. 

Up front it doesn't seem that would unsafe, but subjecting the NFL players to more games means more contact and more chances of injury. Obviously you haven't completely thought this one through.

Vent away people!

Not sure why, but my vents are always about driving (probably because I stay on th road). Those left hand turners in my thru way lane, and now.... Those idiots who can't talk on the phone and drive at the same tie. If the speed limit is 45, and I'm on the phone, guess what? i'm still going 45. I'm a multitasker extrodinaire. BUT...there are those that slow down to about 25 (even a crawl) and sometimes in an intersection!!!! Yeah! that was me that made the phone gestures with my hand, had my mouth wide open mouthing the words, "get off the phone", and pointed my finger at you. Hang up the phone or get off the road. I feel so much better now....until I get behind the idiot again.

Upset about the move to Ipads and Ebooks in DeKalb Public Schools without any proven educational benefit. In light of the school shootings and the possible relationship to access to violent video games, online bullies, online pedophiles, the reports about Iphone thieves becoming more brazen in Atlanta, the expense this transition will mean to the taxpayers and the fact that we had to let school house employees go and lose instructional days in order to keep teachers in classrooms this year, this school system should not be trying to carve out a new path in education reform ... we can't get anything right! When you are coming in near last in every ranking poll out there in a state that is coming in close to last as well, maybe you should try copying the best practices of others rather than thinking that this time you have the solution to your own failure. UGH!

Completely understand. There are people and situations that are emotionally draining that I don't like to deal with either. Totally agree

I will add to the driving complaints because of the near-accident I had today: People who thinks it's ok to come to a complete stop in moving traffic because they have to change lanes. Similar are the ones who go twenty miles under the speed limit because they are looking for their turn. Guess what people? The road ahead doesn't tumble off the edge of the earth. You can always turn around if you miss your turn.
