DST

Instead of legislating laws in support of more fuel-efficient vehicles, solar energy technology and the scrapping of all SUVs, the bozos on the hill have decided to extend Daylight Savings Time (DST). I loathe, detest and hate DST. I always have. The thoughts of having it light outside at 9:00 at night at the end of October makes me very, very,very depressed.


While I am on my soapbox there are many things in the world that irritate me, but one thing that has always been a burr under my saddle is all of the little, petty injustices there are in the workplace. I am sick, sick, sick of people without any sort of credentials being in positions where their qualifications are sorely lacking. It sickens me that there are people with high school diplomas walking around with the title and salary that normally would only go to someone with an advanced degree. Yes, these are the same bitties that think that what they do is so very important to the scheme of the universe. Yeah, right. And it amazes me that people don't see anything wrong with them floating through life on a humbug. I would really like to go up to all of these people and tell them what they can do for me, but I know that what goes around comes around-so they too will get theirs.

I guess I should be use to such things. Those of us who have had a lifetime of this sort of thing know the real deal on all of these "plantations" and we also know there's not too much we can do about it. Just cowboy up, suck it up and keep on keepin' on.

"Floating through life on a humbug?" I like this, though I'm not sure I completely understand it. I've got to work it into my conversation this weekend somehow. :)
