I usually try to write my blog entries about things that are relatable to most people. I generally try to remain upbeat and positive. A good blogger will have a solid viewpoint and try to stick with it. It's never my intent to offend anyone, but I also need to strive a bit harder to not be 'middle of the fence' on my topics. It's my nature to play the mediator, perhaps because I was on the debate team in high school (a little known fact you may not have known). I try to help people sort through things that happen in their lives. Subconsciously I find myself trying to not pick sides, but sometimes I reach a certain point and then I can't help myself ... I get up on my soap box and I rant! Yep, you heard me right. I'm not always soft spoken or mild mannered. I'm sorry if you feel disillusioned right now. Get my feathers ruffled and I'll pitch a fit as good as the next person.
Lately I feel like my tolerance levels are being tested. Why? I'm not really sure, but I sure wish I knew. I've become intolerant to people disregarding when I'm trying to sleep and setting off loud fireworks late into the night. For goodness sakes, it's not even the weekend yet or the actual holiday! I'm intolerant of people being loud and carrying on outside on a weeknight. It's midnight ... some of us need to get up and go to work tomorrow. I'm definately intolerant of people talking on their cell phones and texting while driving - it's not my fault you have one hand on your phone and one hand on your steering wheel which leaves you with NO available hands to actually use your turn signal and let us other drivers know that you intended to make that sudden right hand turn. And to conclude (drum roll please ...) I am absolutely intolerant to the fact that gas prices will AWLAYS go up by at least 20cents the day before a holiday. Common, seriously, do the people at the oil companies really think the American public is THAT stupid?
What makes you get up on your soapbox?
