Random Tuesday Thoughts


I don't write these too often, because sometimes I feel they are whining & complaining sounding. I try to be a positive person, and not let things get me down or angry, but lately a few things have really bugged me.

Mailman- sorry I didn't shovel the mailbox to your liking, but my husband was away for almost 2 weeks. And I have a previous injury that makes it hard for me to do the shoveling properly. Thanks for not delivering my mail for 3 days. Now that my husband is home though and shoveled, you can finally deliver the mail.

Thanks on the day that you could finally deliver the mail, you knock on my door anyway to hand deliver it to me because I had a certified letter. And thanks for delivering a card with gift certificates worth 200 dollars in it to the wrong house. Luckily we have an honest neighbor.

Mother's neighbor- We have known you for over 30 years, so if you go away for an extended time, it would be nice if you could let someone know. My mother thought you would be back right after Thanksgiving, but you have not come home since. We don't know your son's phone number in Las Vegas. Please let us know if you are ok.

Neighbor's son - I figured I could maybe contact you through Facebook. I looked you up and found you on there. I haven't talked to you in years, but sent you a message through Facebook. I don't even want to be "friends" with you, but would just like you to message me back that your Father is OK. Don't you check your email? Would it kill you to email me back?

Anonymous Relative- I know it was with good intentions that you sent me a check for presents for the kids. But I was pretty much done with my shopping. Now I have to run around trying to buy presents that are from you to give to them on Christmas. And I will probably end up spending more money then you even gave me for them. And I also have to do the wrapping. Thank you for that.

Another Anonymous Relative - Thank you for complaining to another family member about your financial problems. Now they feel bad for you. I feel real sorry for you - that you own 3 houses and that one was given to you years ago free in clear in somebody's will. But then you got greedy and bought 2 more. I feel bad that you get a check handed to you by the government every month for not doing anything. And that you go on trips to elaborate places every year. And that you don't even have kids to worry about supporting. Yes, I feel real bad for you.

Thanks, if you've read this far. I feel a little better now!


  1. Oh I totally agree with you about the relatives that send the checks to buy the kids gifts. I homeschool and my kids are with my all the time and these people are all retired with no kids. It would be MUCH easier for THEM to do the shopping. But no, please, let me go out at 10:00 at night to do the job for them!

  2. It's not complaining or whining, we all love to hear it because we all have the same variations in our own lives. :)

  3. Don't even get me started on stupid mailmen who are not getting anything from me this holiday season....

    Have a great day!

  4. I don't think I ever got money to go towards gifts— did they actually tell you to get gifts with the money? I typically just keep it with any of the other checks that come in and go shopping after Christmas so that they can pick out something they didn't get.

    Thanks for your randomness,

  5. ooo if you have 200 moolah delivered to different houses, just let me know and I'll gladly be your neighbor:) ha ha
    Happy Tuesday! And if you have time, here's my Randomness!!!
