Is This the Toughest Season?!

Why is it that when tax season comes around, it seems a bit stressful?

Lord!

Especially when your mind is as crowded or clouded I should say as mine!

I swear I am only 27 yrs old and I experienced enough stress to last me to 80!!!

My brain is constantly frazzled and fried and I can’t remember daily tasks!

WTF!

Anywho….

I can’t seem to remember if I kept my w2 from last year or chucked it in spirit of I didn’t need it anymore!

We moved in Nov so I was cleaning all my old paperwork before we moved….

Apart of me feels like I chucked it (and regrets it currently)

and then I also feel like I hid it.

Confusing right?  Continue reading

Are You Too Good To Be Mentioned?!

Who gave men the disciplinal right to try to demand certain things from women???

From “curfews” to budgeting (but you can’t tell them to budget their own money oh no), to cooking & cleaning to many more but my most recent fav….

Telling you NOT to blog about them!!!

Especially when they don’t even READ your blog!!

 

About a month ago I subbed this gov lady in my post cuz her man was pretending to be my man and she “so called researched” and found my blog as a connection to him. Hmm how? If his name isn’t tagged in my posts and the only way you do that is if you have his first and last name which you must have got from ya fake lyin’ ass man and searched fb to get to me as well…… My man found out cuz it was his best friend’s brother…his bestie was talkin’ so much shit about my blog and his ass don’t read it either!

Long story short, my bf was all “don’t talk about me” Continue reading

If You Want Certain Privileges…..Where The Ring At?!!

Put ring on it.gif

When is there a time to be home when u ARE NOT MARRIED?

11PM?

12AM?

Men seem to always want to tell women when to be home and when to do other things BUT when it comes to them, they want freedom to do as they please?!!

GTFOH!

For those that don’t know the abbreviation, it’s Get The Fuck Outta Here!

They call being home at 11pm a safety reason.

IS IT??

So then you should be home too.

When I used to go out with my friends I would come home at 1am from the bars.

I was never too drunk to get home.

But back to the matter at hand…..

Where’s my ring?

2nd man that wants marriage privileges but no ring.

Damn! It’s Just A Co-Worker!

When is it never acceptable to talk to co workers??!!

Oooooo I love a good rant and I think I am overdue for one!

Ladies and Gentleman,

Why is it that people always feel a type of way about having co-workers as friends?

It becomes either a stereotype or some male’s way of thinking because they are insecure.

I been dating bae for 2 and a half years and we had many disagreements about being friends with co-workers.

Just because he is anti-social, does that mean I have to be???

NO!!!

Who died and made him GOD?

Sorry, No one.

And I ask him this all the time especially in arguments.

Because no one has the right to tell someone to do something and expect it to get done cuz they like things a certain way.

Anywho…..

I think it’s not a big deal to be cordial with co-workers.

Hell! Sometimes you can make best friends out of co-workers!!!

Ugh Life Sucks Without Cable!

Have u ever had the struggle?!

Where things clash at once and you have to pick yourself back up?

Like light bill got cut off or in my case

CABLE!

I’m not gonna lie we are behind on payments and lord let me tell u

Okay!

For TWO WEEKS I had no cable!
I watch so many show that I NEED it!

I could barely use my laptop how I want cuz with no cable means no Wifi soooo I was using my mobile hotspot

And to use it on the laptop I have to plug my phone up because it isn’t working wirelessly!

Soooooo annoying!!!!

New-york-annoyed

Here’s how my week went:

I slept allllll week the 1st week mostly and binged Family Guy on Netflix

Then the following week when that was over, I watched this corny cartoon called Big Mouth just to have something to do.

I also seen 2 movies.

I have most TV apps on my phone so when shows were on when I remembered, I seen them on my phone.

When hubby was at work was be sooooo bored!!

Television really hypnotizes people….

hypnotized

We moved from one borough to the next last week and FINALLY after 24 hours we got cable!!

I was in the crib like

happyyy.gif

Buuutttt unfortunately changing the settings on the cable made the TV go into standby!

We had optimum, but switched to RCN (Residential Communications Network) because it was cheaper. It has Tivo…remember Tivo??! I guess it is too powerful for the TV.

WHATTTT???!

what meme.jpg

Anyways sooooo once again I went a while without cable!

Whhhyyyy does God hate me!? Lol

But I watch my shows on the apps.

And I binge Orange is the New Black and I am already on Season 2. Pretty crazy so far. 

When cable comes back on, I am going to be more cautious with the settings and everything so it won’t happen again.

RCN’s technician is HERE and then cable will be back hopefully they can fix it!

Or we need a new TV……

Cheers! Cheers!

Anyone else ever feel my pain? (lol)

I Don’t Uber Everywhere; I Catch a Lyft!!

I think this story is suitable for the ending of Friday and beginning of Saturday!

The club hours, where many people use cabs is the hours cab drivers make the most money

The party weekend is every weekend!

So as the caption says, I take Lyfts!

There was this one time I went shopping and had to carry a few big items such as pillows and wine glasses ALONE because bf was working and we needed the pillows. I also always buy more than I can carry sometimes but I’m working on it.

Anywho, I called an Uber to take me home. This was a couple months ago. Before I found out I was pregnant. (Yes definitely was pregnant carrying all these items and didn’t know it!

I was already hungry, tired and annoyed.

I called a cab expecting less hassle. I had just left Macy’s with all of this stuff.

This uber driver looked as if he was coming.

I even called him when I saw he was near. He answers the phone, says he’s coming and mumbled some shit and then hung up!

YOOOOO! ALL In my head I’m like he can’t be serious. I call back and it sends me to uber operative system.

WTF!

Oohhh I’m pissed and confused now.

I watch on the gps and he finally reaches in front of me. I’m looking like helloooo I’m right here!

I call again and same uber line.

WHY HE KEPT DRIVING!!!???? 

DO YOU KNOW HOW LIVID I WAS? 

angry

I emailed uber right away feuding and trying not to curse at them. My thumbs were fumbling over every curse word you can imagine, however;

I described my whole situation calmly.

Then I texted my bf (who’s an uber driver himself BUT never understands from a passenger’s point of view) and told him I’M DONE with Uber. Point. Blank. Period.

Explained to him what happened and how I’m mostly pissed because I was trying to avoid the train ride home but NOW I had to anyway because I was not in the mood for cabs anymore.

I was soooooo upset.

Once I got home that day, I uninstalled Uber and downloaded Lyft again.

Uber reimbursed my money. Thank God because I would have went up to their headquarters myself!

Time to try something new.

Lyft has been pretty good except the one time I was going to work and this stupid driver stops by this area with plants to ask if this was my destination!!!!

At this point I was 3 months pregnant, it’s hot outside, he’s annoying…

DOES IT LOOK LIKE I PAID $20 FOR A DROP OFF TO PLANTS?!!! 

Smfh.

I asked him very snarky like, what does the gps sayy? Does it say this is MY destination?

facepalmin.gif

Then I told him just pull over and let me out because he was being dumb.

He dropped me off and I had to walk 3 blocks to my job.

I was hormonal and hot which lead to me being angry!

I complained to lyft about him and got $5 off my next ride.

About a few times after I had some drivers that couldn’t find my destination so once again I walked.

I tell my bf these stories and he gets upset cuz I walked. What was I posed to do? Let the assholes take more time and money? NO. I’m not being late for a dumbass driver.

So one day I asked my bf for directions once you pass the parkway because that’s when people seemed to get lost

Annndddd

Ever since he told me I redirect drivers before they pull that stunt again.

My bf also takes me to work everyday now unless he can’t then I would take cabs but lately I’ve been taking the train.

Can’t deal with cabs.

I will cancel a 4.6 now because that shows they may not know directions

I get off work at 11pm right? And just the other day I had a driver cancel on me cuz he couldn’t find the place, 2nd driver I had to cancel for same reason….

I get a 4.8 the 3rd time and he made it in front of my building!!!

How ??

HOW!!!???

It took 15 mins for me to get in a cab due to the other 2!

Ughh I need a car!

I still use Lyft and have had no complaining to do……

Life in NYC —- always some interesting drama!

Do you have a cab story to share? Let me know!

The Thirst is Real!!

So let me tell y’all….

I’ve experienced my fair share of women testing my patience when it comes to my relationship.

There was one scenario about 3 months ago that I had to hold everything within me to stay mature!

Remember how I told y’a’ll that I am not ratchet? So yeah I had to keep that up for the moment and assess the situation before I became a different person….

Anyways let me rant to you!

My babe and I went to Friday’s as we always do before seeing a movie at the theater across the street from it.

He went to get the movie tickets so I made his order for him.

I told this heffa of a waitress his order and told her THAT IS IT! Of course with my order.

She felt the need to come back when he returned and asked him if he wanted anything else…..

Okay I let that slide… that wasn’t the part that made me wanna snatch her ugly ass wig!

This next thing I am about to tell you is what made me want to go all Love and Hip hop on that ass!
