WTF?

Double Standard

Picture this, a very popular morning show, coming back from commercials.

"And we're back..."

Three men are sitting around chuckling as they start the next segment. They're talking about a group of men that set up a woman that cheated and conned them all. One of them led her into a hotel room, tied her up and then texted the rest of the men. They end punching her, torturing her and ultimately crazy gluing her vagina. The whole while the men are laughing and cracking jokes.

"She messed with the wrong guys."

Some of them comment that this is what happens when you're forced to take the law into your own hands. Almost as if saying that she deserved it, and that it is almost unfortunate that they'll be considered criminals and that she will be the victim when this goes to court. The law couldn't help them when she cheated and conned them so this was them getting even. (I don't know about you but technically wouldn't getting even be something more like cheating on her?) All this is going on in front of a national audience.

Crazy huh. This would never happen...

It just did on the Today Show except it was women laughing at a guy who got his penis crazy glued to his leg. Real funny. Sure the guy deserved it, but I hate double standards, eh...

Oh God Why?!

Venting

Can someone please explain to me why nothing works. Melissa thinks I have a bad attitude, I swear to you that I jinxed though. The 360 breaks, I send it in to get repaired, they actually send me a new one, with a free month of LIVE even. Score! Until I realize that I can't get online with it. Then when I try to fix the Airport, our iBook isn't working. We call Apple support, supposedly the bestomgbestinthewholewideworldforsupportandcustomerservice, and they want money to help. Either that or we can take it to an Apple store.

So that's just that situation. I'm also trying to go back to school. That's been a pain, transcripts, logging on to their system. Financial aid not accepting certain things, filling out a FORM FOR LIKE OVER AN HOUR and then not having it go through. Using the school's email system and not knowing whether or not things are going through. What else? Waiting in lines at the school FOREVER.

I know a lot of this stuff is what everyone goes through, everyone gets frustrated and has set backs, I know. Oh wait, printing out forms I needed and I run out of ink. Perfect timing! I need to look something up, our Internet goes down! The universe just doesn't seem to like me much, I don't know what I ever did to it...

Oh I also have to take a math placement test. I'm like retarded when it comes to math. I think the only reason I passed some of my classes in high school is because I bowled for one teacher/coach and I stayed after school with another. I never took math in college because I hate it/suck at it and I ended up taking one class twice at a JC. I also managed to drop it twice. It's bad enough that math is a foreign language to me, but the guy trying to teach it to me was also from a foreign country, lol. Long story short, I have to take this placement test and I'm going to end up in a class with the kid with the helmet and the other kid from Can-a-dah eh?

There's more but I feel better now...
