To agree with a wise woman

Mean people do suck.

Here is the thing, I am not sure who decided that it was okay to be as mean, nasty or rude as you want to be, but it is not. We put an ad up on freecycle offering two of the kittens and some jerk sent me an email with two links to get the cat spayed...not one other word, just the two links. I am sorry, but we adopted the cat, she would have been abandoned or worse, and she was already pregnant when we got her (we did not know this). She was spayed yesterday as we DO know how animals get pregnant, just as our dog was spayed as a puppy. The fact that this person assumed that I wanted their two cents or that I was so stupid I couldn't figure out how sex produces kittens just as it does children, amazes me. Needless to say, I sent back an email explaining that we adopted the cat and she was pregnant and just how rude I thought they were. In addition, I made sure to sign with all of my credentials, just to verify that I am not the idiot.

In addition, I am so not thrilled with the tirades of others. Just because you always wanted to hang with the popular kids in high school or the boy you liked didn't ask you to prom or you sat at the outcast table, PLEASE don't make the rest of us pay for it now, and please do not become the parent that tries to create the world you never had for your kid. You look like a fool and your kid will never learn two important lessons, 1 that they are fine the way they are without someone making a path for them and 2 everyone shouldn't do what they want, when they want, because it is really a pain in the ass to have to break that to a 20 year old.

Oh and one more thing, don't ever assume that you know what I mean or I am thinking, take my words for what they are, I don't beat around the bush or try to play nice. If you can't accept it, that is your problem, not mine.
