The opposite of mundane

This has been a rather strange week. Strange as in the opposite of mundane. First off, the Casey Anthony verdict had me fuming. Her being found not guilty is the most ridiculous thing I ever heard, seriously! I only hope and pray she doesn’t have any more children!

Oh, she may be free now but there’s karma to deal with. I believe karma always catches up. People may cheat, plunder and kill and yes, they may be rich and powerful and get away with murder now but ultimately, what goes around comes around. Maybe not in this lifetime but the next or the next or the next. Man, that was profound, even for me 😆 .

As for Octomom, Nadya Suleman, I honestly don’t know how she manages 14 kids single-handedly. I have 3 kids and I’m running around in circles. If I had 14, I’d probably be moving into a hotel. Yes, I am very impressed with her, though not with her decision to have more kids than the Old Woman Who Lives in a Shoe!

Closer to home, I’ve been dealing with a group of impossible women. You know, the sort who are both stupid and unreasonable. I’m fine with people being stupid because hey, they didn’t ask to be born with a 50% discount off grey matter, and let’s face it, everyone does stupid things sometimes, even the smarty pants.

But being unreasonable, now that’s another thing. They just refuse to see the point. There’s no logic to what they’re saying or doing. And they plainly refuse to listen to reason! Yeah, those! Those are the ones I have problems with.

I’ve reached the end of my rope and I’m not proud to say I shouted on the phone several times this week, and even then, they still don’t get it!! So how DO you deal with people like that??!!

On a lighter note, happiness is a healthy dose of retail therapy. Raine and I found some irresistible bargains and I saved me a bundle on birthday presents. Can’t wait to get our hands on da loot!

And finally, I leave you with the quote of the week from Skye, our resident animal activist: I boycott Facebook because Mark Zuckerberg hunts animals for food. Good ’nuff for me, and for those of you who asked why my girls deleted their Facebook accounts, here’s your answer 😀 .

    I have to admit, I didn’t follow the Casey Anthony trial. I got enough of that with Susan Smith. I did, however, hear a good bit about it on Twitter and making my rounds of some blogs. I read one article recently on how the jurors are saying they knew she was guilty but didn’t feel there was enough evidence for a conviction. It just blows my mind.

    As for Octomom, I’ve always thought that she was a little nuts. To me, 3 or 4 kids is more than enough. I personally stopped at 1. There was a time I would have had one more, but as my daughter got older, I was glad I didn’t. She’s almost 18 now and she’s been quite a challenge all by herself!

    I can relate to stupid people, and to those so blinded my their own concept of something that they can’t see past it. There’s no easy way to deal with them and I hate you’re having to.

    I almost deleted my FB, but ended up keeping it for my fanpage. That’s about all I use it for anymore.

    You’ve got a nice place here. Glad I found you!

    I have to constantly remind myself that you can’t reason with an unreasonable person. As far as the Casey Anthony trial, I think we all feel she’s guilty, but there just wasn’t enough evidence. I don’t think people ever get away with anything, it catches up in the end. And as far as Octomom, sometimes people should be protected from their idiocracy. In this case the doctor shouldn’t have gone along with this, but these people seem to procreate more than reasonable intelligent people. Watch the movie Idiocracy – our world may come to this.
    Great post.

    @Crystal, Ann, Just Mom
    Thanks for the vote of confidence. Good to know I’m not the only one who’s had it up to here with unreasonable people.
