Random Tuesday Thoughts


Seriously, this is the best thing EVER because folks, I got nothin'. Nothin' at all.
But, I do have some random crap floating around my brain - so I'm getting it out.

  • People who abuse the English language. You know? Like the language you SPEAK, here in AMERICA for pete's sake. You know what? When you are writing an email, or a letter, or A RESUME - USE SPELL CHECK. In fact, USE IT TWICE. I had several resumes that I reviewed this week that had misspelled words. Well, since they don't have time to use spell check - well, I don't have time to review their resume.
  • The word irregardless. It's not a word. It should not be used. Ever. Doubt me? Look it up.
  • Kid/Adults - e.g. those who Fail To Launch. You know - like the movie. If you are over the age of 25 you know what? You need a job and you need to find a way to live on your own - however you have to do it. I did it - you can too. (If you don't know what movie I'm talking about well then you've missed some prime Matthew McConaughey AND an opportunity to see the rear end of Terry Bradshaw but don't let that stop you.)
  • On a more serious note - the disease of preeclampsia has been on my mind this week. Over the past few weeks those of us who moderate the Preeclampsia Foundation's bulletin boards were reminded there ARE women who still pass away as a result of this disease. Unfortunately, even in a nation as developed as America preeclampsia remains one of the leading causes of maternal and fetal death. The only cure is delivery. Please, if you are unaware of the symptoms and signs - please, please go to the Preeclampsia Foundation and read up. The knowledge you gain might save yourself, a friend, or your child. Know the symptoms, trust yourself.
So was that random enough for you? We've got a lesson on my hatred of the word irregardless, my disdain for those who are over 25 and not employed or going to school, my fetish for using spell check and how if you don't I probably won't be hiring you and finally, a little lecture about preeclampsia.

Oh, and a run on sentence.

Cause I'm AWESOME like that.

Oooo.... I hate irregardless too. But you know what... spell checkers generally accept it. WTF.
I also hate people who pronounce frustrated as fuss-trated. People, there's an R in there. Right after the F. F as is f*cking learn how to properly pronounce simple words!

Thanks for the shout-out girlfriend! Totally agree with the 'Failure to Launch Syndrome' did we just make that up? LOL Also, it is really sad that especially in this jpb market people wouldn't take the time to triple check their resume. Too bad for them!
