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. Continue reading

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 Ignorant World We Live IN! 

How does a movie determine if I’m white or black??

If I curse

Why I dont smoke

Or drink

Get loud

Be ratchet

Act like other black people

Does that make me white? 

mehh.gif

This goes back to when I was in a discussion and because I never watched one of Eddie Murphy’s movies I was questioned….

The movie was Coming to America

A movie created before I was born… 1988!! I’m a 90s baby! 

I was asked, “Are you black?” “Do you curse?” 

I laughed because it was a family member of my bf’s but when I thought about it,

this actually pissed me off!!!

My bf and I had a strong disagreement about it that night.

The type of movie I watch doesn’t have to do with race.

White people watch black movies…does that make them black?

NO.

People always say ignorant things…. especially black people!!!

You Right There! STOP Slackin’ Off!

U ever work with somebody that makes u wanna quit?

I have a few times!!! Let me tell ya

*Disclaimer* As you can see, I am FED UP with my co-workers, this is why I am venting about them in a few separate posts because they are different topics and deserve to stay separated! 

So as seen in my previous post, you know my job title, but let me give you the hours more clearly…

7Am to 3pm

3pm to 11pm

11pm to 7Am

Okay soooo…. 

I have this one co-worker on my 3p-11p shift whom was used to the overnight shift and couldn’t adjust to the busy 3p to 11p shift. Her first week she was not doing her job properly. For example, we are entitled to open client doors as requested each day and she didn’t want to open doors. Each worker usually takes turns doing so, but this breed just didn’t want to do it.

Aye What’s Good!?

I have NEVER been apart of the ghetto crowd, but I have observed them and I can just smh (shake my head)….

I was raised in a different environment from those of NY kinship…

Fellow readers if you visit NYC, you will understand what I mean….

The cursing, the ignorant thinking, way people talk and walk, etc…

Have I cursed in my lifetime? Sure. 

Is it every sentence or after every word? NO! 

Not my style. 

When I tried cursing heavily in my teenage years, it was to fit in and I had to check myself like SIS noooooo that is not you. 

Immediately stopped cursing. 

It is a NY thing, I’ll say. 

When I went to Iowa, I became better in my vocabulary, learning what to say and when….do you know how many people in Iowa actually thought I was from Iowa?!! I tell you I am different! 

But the slang of NY never left me!! Huuurrddddd? (hehe used 1) 

Okay Sooooooo let me break down some experiences to y’all that’ll show why NY is ghetto and IF you work for the right company, you’ll definitely see the ratchet, ghetto black people all in one room or in that business period.
