Weird And Wonderful wrote 5 Things in Life: Deserving A Two Fingers Salute – Part 1.
Warning: This blog contains Weird and Wonderful ways of dealing with life. Through laughter.
“This is my two fingers salute list, of things I find annoying and have not shared with people before; I feel I really need to, as I feel several of you may feel the same. I already know how to avoid some of them on the list and I feel much better about writing them – it is good to let it out. Maybe you could make a list also – it is highly therapeutic”
1. Slum Landlords!!!! –
Specifically the UK and America have fallen into this pattern of having dodgy landlords. They do not maintain buildings, they do not look after long letting tenants.
But here is the beast of a nightmare – since the government decided to put another tax on home owners “the bedroom tax” – it has made these dodgy ‘sons of a guns’ – come out in full force wanting to create a way to pay this tax off. Yes – you heard right – they created a tax for the amount of bedrooms you have in your building.
So…. Come and have a look! They have 7 people in one room – squashed like sardines. And the landlord is charging £600.00 for the privelaged of them sharing a room and living in a house with 4 other people, with only one toilet. Who the heck does that????
What about the risk of infection??
- Did they not know there was an increase to whooping cough in the last few years.
- Did they not know about the increase of Tuberculosis in highly populated areas.
It makes me feel queasy just thinking about it.
No – when they run out of hot water and you work at a health and social care company…. you know you would be annoyed as heck to have a landlord like that. So why would you put yourselves through hell? Why increase the chances of infection. Why not report them to the health department and the relevant councils?
Sorry but £600.00 can get you a flat all to yourself. Toilet of your own and a way to not harvest infection. Good thinking on not spreading disease. Give yourself a pat on the back.
Slum Landlords – stop voting for scum government to help you be able to be dodgy. You receive my two fingers salute!
2. Retail Expansions –
When the only job you can get in the UK and the US is in Retail or commerce. It makes you feel as though Capitalism has lost it’s meaning and purpose for mankind. There is no variety. There is no produce really. The thing is the shops do not last very long.
You just end up looking at some boarded up town feeling like London is the only place without these disgusting boarded up high streets. With no jobs and no income for people to spend, how are they going to buy themselves a nice watch or suit?
As this is how it all began was through greed. Now they are collapsing and blaming immigration when they have voted for some idiot government who began taxing people for having bedrooms. Heavens above, they love to just shoot themselves in the foot.
How about rejuvenation?
Retail supermarket Expansions – have my two fingers salute!
3. Self – checkouts –
My uncle used to curse at the self check out counters. I laughed at him but he was right. They are a *£$=**% $&#€=£&!!!!!!
They take jobs from people, increases crime.
- They are not polite, which increases bad behaviour.
- Human to human or face to face contact reduces stress and anxiety, this reduces crime.
- Social Interaction levels decrease In society causing more crime.
- People steal more.
The list is endless.
Two fingers are raised! Bye self – service.
4. Cheap biscuits –
Cannot stand them. Call me a snob, or pretentious but my biscuit has to have a bit of clout. I fell in love with the decedance of foreign biscuits. They crumble in your mouth and the flavours burst on your tongue. Almost when you haven’t been kissed in ages and you just love the taste – I wrote that and I noticed the eroticism! I feel food is just an erotic experience at times when I feel not so spectacular.
Like chocolate… oh my word. Just let it melt on your mouth. Hence, Hershys kisses! But for me a nice cup of tea and one of those foreign biscuits or biscotti: heavenly.
Cheap biscuits my two fingers salute is raised.
5. Automated services –
Please dial blah blah….
Look – I deal with people, or, no deal!
I love the way the rest of the world laughs at us being stressed after pressing the wrong button on one of those company calls:
“HI….How can I help!”
Oh which department have a called? Am I through to the right one.
“Yes you .are through to customer service. How can I help.”
So regardless of you pressing all those buttons you are still put through to customer service.
Hanging up my phone. Two fingers Salute is not a problem – please continue to hold.
❤❤❤ yourselves…. and laugh at it.
