Rant Until Your Hearts Content

Dear Sofa Diary readers,

It has come to my attention that some of you don’t have secrets to share but you do have a lot to say (rant) .  So I would like to invite those of you who are pissed off, fed up or just like to complain, to let us in on what is keeping you up at night or is just plain driving you nuts. With all that said I have a little something that I would like to get off my chest. So here goes Junie with our very first rant.

Okay, I am a modern girl. I use all of the latest technology, cellphones, computers, email, digital camera and this blog but I still know how to talk to someone without the latest gadgets. Why is it that so many of our family and friends can’t  pick up the phone or deliver really important news in person. Do you really think it’s appropraite to email or text message the news that someone is dying? Or email me the night before your Christmas party to let me know what you need me to bring. I may not look at my email before I leave and I really don’t want to find out that someone is dying via email or text message. Would it really kill you to pick up the phone and call me or better yet deliver that kind of news in person?

What do you all think.  Has modern technology gone too far? Have we all forgotten how to comunicate with one another? Does this drive anyone else crazy or is it just me? Tell me what drives you over the edge.

My Mother-in Law is the Devil

Please welcome Shirley to the sofa.

Well that’s it. This time she has gone too far. I have to expose her but I’m not sure how I should do it. My mother-in law is a manipulative bitch and I can’t take it anymore. It started with the wedding, she made sure she was in every picture and made me step out to have a family picture done. She comes by the house while I’m at work to help out, as she calls it. She does my husbands laundry not mine just his, irons his shirts and leaves him little notes and presents in his sock drawer. 

I have put up with her for 2 years now but her last action was just too much. She recorded an argument that my husband and I had on Christmas day. This was an argument that started due to some critical comments she made about me. She hide a tape recorder in the guest bedroom before we arrived that day and now she is using that tape to turn the rest of the family against me.  Isn’t that psycho? This has got to stop but I’m not sure how to do it because my husband doesn’t see her for who she really is- the devil.

Junie: Wow what an evil ****   I guess you could start by saying you know that he loves his mom but you need a little support and tell him the things she’s done to offend you. Tell him that he needs to stand up for you before she’ll make any changes. Good luck with this one.
