If you were infected with Rabies

List the people you would bite, in order.

I'll go first.

  1. PraxAir's billing department. Hello? I already paid your stupid bill three months ago, so stop sicking the collection agency on me, kay?
  2. DeAnn Adams, who continues to give out my phone number on her loan and credit card applications, which phone number I have had for the last SIX years, and is apparently racking up major debts, which results in calls to ME from belligerant collection agents who refuse to believe that Mrs. DeAnn Adams does not live at my address.
  3. The dork in Britain who stole our credit card number, which has resulted in several of my auto payments to fail, which has resulted in late fees, which has resulted in me having to call and whine my way out of late fees. All's well that ends well, right? I personally think that's a really stupid cliche.

Your turn.

LOL. Remind me not to ever have money dealings with you that don't go well, Lisa.

And I honestly can't think of anyone I'd bite today. I tried, but there's just not anyone. I blame the serenity.

I would bite various memebers of my extended family. Screaming, ranting, raging, foaming at the mouth....oh wait, I think they are already infected. Is it ever fatal?:)

Christina said...

I'm gonna steal that, kay? If I get around to it I mean...

i don't remember anyone ever calling for DeAnn. I do remember all the calls for Nancy, though! ugh! people would call all the time and say, "hi is nancy there?" and we would say no, no one lives here named nancy. and they would keep calling over and over again all the time. it was weird.

um I would probably bite those kids who threw barbaque sauce at my head during lunch last year. they definitely deserve it. my hair smelled like barbeque chicken for a week, seriously! Dumb seventh graders! I will never ever let them forget it.

Also I would bite the football team. Cause they are seriously immature jerks and they sit in their cars during marching band camp and make fun of us and honk alot also. except i would only bite those ones who are annoying cause I actually am friends with alot of football players who are not jerks, luckily.

I would also bite ALA cause they are stealing all of our awesome teachers! plus alot of ALA students always tell me how dumb my school is and how superior theirs is, so I am pretty sick of that crap cause I actually like my school. I don't care about ALA.

I see you got a poll up about this. I had to choose the self-righteous "my charity is boundless" option, because although it's not even close to accurate, it's closer than expecting to be translated. And I don't want to bite anyone. Anyway, my point is that your poll is slanted :P

OOohhh, I like this one. Today is a relatively biteless day for me, but to be fair...I really have gone anywhere. Give if an hour or so and a trip to the store and I am sure I will come up with several worthy bitees.

Mommom said...

Number one on my list is absolutely, hands-down, telemarketers. Especially the new ones where there is actually a recording asking misleading questions where you want to say yes, think you're talking to a person and have the hardest time getting them to never call again (in fact, in some cases you have to call a seperate number to get your name off the list!) I don't get rude often - don't like it when I do, but dh remarked that I didn't sound like myself after a few of those phone calls.

Second would be the organization that can't seem to get it right and keep it right in their computer that there is someone out there with a name similar to my husband and HE took out a student loan NOT us, so please remove our phone number, change the info and stop calling us expecting to get any information or money. Yeah, I'd bite them too. I'm not sure who's messing up on that though so I'd probably have find out which department would need to be bitten.

How about Obama so he can't run for president.

Well and how about Hilary Clinton while we are at it.

And that is all I can think of for now.

Becky said...

Uh, I didn't see defiant four-year olds on the list, so I can't vote. :) Seriously, though, does it get better as they get older? Lie to me if you need to - I desperately need a pick-me-up!

Lisa said...

Becky - Yes, it does get better! The child I struggled with and worried over the most when she was four years old is now a lovely, self-controlled, hilarious 14-year old. Hang in there, girl! :)

Amie Earl said...

So then there is hope right? I mean about defiant 4 year olds. I would like to bite the people at a large corp. who sell phone service sheesh you make a little change to your bill and you pay for it a long long time and are endenture servant talking to custome no service people who make up it as they talk to you.

Mommom said...

I'll second Lisa - 4 year old definitely get better. My teenagers are some of the people that I have the most fun with now.

jen said...

I am going to say that I would definitely bite those stupid companies that don't offer a decent warranty on their products or an service after you spend $1000+ of your cold hard cash on a laptop only to have it completely crash 15 months later and then find out that the computer has a one year warranty, the hard drive has a nine month warranty and the "reputable store (Staples)" that you bought all of it from only has a 14 DAY warranty!!!! GOOD GRIEF PEOPLE!!! CAN'T WE BELIEVE IN OUR PRODUCTS ANY MORE?!?!?

..... sorry...... That feels so much better though. :)
