So, I never do this, I never complain or rant in any way whatsoever. I always just go with the flow, pretend all is okay and avoid conflict at all costs. Quite honestly, this seems to work pretty well for me most of the time… the zen approach, if you will. But sometimes, I gotta admit, it’s nice to step out of that role and not be the bigger person for a minute. Anyways, long ramble short, I am going to take a quick moment and rant about a few of my pet peeves. Then, I promise to go back to my highest self and radiate positivity as I always try to do.
The health care system – “I’m sorry to break this to ya, doc, but you don’t know everything. You don’t know everything about medicine, and you sure as hell don’t know everything about my condition.” Wow, it would be so amazing to say that out loud one day! Having had a rare genetic disorder my entire life, I am used to confused doctors looking at me like I’m an alien from outer space. I really don’t expect them to know anything about FD, and I also don’t care if they openly admit that they don’t know anything, in fact I even respect it. The only time I do have an issue is when they pretend to be experts… I mean seriously dude, I’m the only one with this condition in Ottawa, so there’s no way you know as much as you say you do.
Selling stuff on Kijiji – Ok, I get that people expect cheap stuff on this site, that’s why people use it. What I don’t get is why people are never satisfied. If it’s not the price they don’t agree with, then it’s the time of pickup, or the location… people are never happy. Please, don’t get me wrong, I love people and I am actually a pretty patient person normally. I think sometimes, I just feel like I wish these things could go smoother. Been trying to sell our rat cage for probably a month now, and we’ve had to bring the price down to less than half of what we started with. Everyone who writes us either tries bargaining to lower the price, asks for more or less of our accessories, etc. We have yet to get a response from someone who accepts everything as is. So, here’s hoping it happens one day!
Alright, rant is over. Back to being myself, positive and zen 🙂
