The Frustrated Ramblings of A Drama Queen Part 5 (I think?!)

It has been MONTHS since I did a ramble post. I know you loved reading them as much as I did writing them so in true Drama Queen style, here is the first ramble of my non student life. Try not to wee yourselves with the excitement! And seriously, what the hell would this blog be without some frustrated rambling. I am pretty sure the only reason I started blogging was so I could rant to the internet. That is a total lie, I am so kidding... not

Before you proceed I have to warn you this post if full of extra crazy (if such a thing is possible).
1. British Rail Travel
Just the title of this section kinda says it all. But if you live outside of Britain OR you're fortunate enough to NOT have to experience rail travel at rush hour, then I'll break it down for you. British rail travel SUCKS. The end. No but in all seriousness, I have been at my job 4 weeks so that's 20 mornings right? (my maths is crap, I am asking you in seriousness??....kidding....) Out of those 20 mornings only TWO, yes you read that right, TWO of my trains actually arrived on time. *Round of applause for Northern Rail/Network Rail*. You have NO idea (well you probably do if you rely on British rail travel in rush hour) how mortifying it is when your train is late/or cancelled on your first week at your new job. I am pretty sure the workers of British rail travel couldn't arrange a piss up at a brewery. 

2. People on British Rail Travel

This probably applies beyond British rail travel. Please someone tell me WHAT is with those people who stand within 5cm's away from you?! And not even when it's busy. When there's a whole mile of platform to share, they just come and get all bump and grind up in my space. I'm seriously considering investing in an inflatable ball to stand in at platforms. Remember folks, you heard it here first. 

3. Bad PR

This one is for my fellow bloggers. I am SICK of  PR mooses (it's my new insult okay) emailing me inviting me to events or telling me to post stupid links to their stupid press releases when it is NOTHING to do with my blog OR they assume I am doing it for free. OR they state 'It is something your readers would love to see'. That just makes me arsey. Don't say I don't protect you guys cause I really do. I also wrote about this for my company's site. If you too have experienced such arseness of the blogging world then be my guest and read and tell me what you think - http://www.pushon.co.uk/blog/our-bloggers-speak-outreach/

4. Gig Tickets

It a sad day to be a music lover in 2014. Remember the days when you could pay between £10-30 to watch an internationally known successful musician/band/singer?! (If you, don't you're far too young for the internet). I've noticed over the past few years the increasing rise in gig tickets. And I am not just talking £40-£60, I mean well over £100. It's no secret I am a Taylor Swift fan. Don't judge me, she totally got me through my late teens/any encounter I have ever had with the opposite sex. Me and my bestie have paid to see her twice, both at our local arena. We never paid more than £30. The minimum she was charging for this years tour is £60. C'mon Taytay, I love your music, but I don't love it THAT much. I can perform my own live 'boys are mean' concert for free to my dog in my bedroom thanks.

5. Aggressive Christmas Shoppers

So yeah today I was in Marks & Spencers and I forgot I wanted a drink when we'd reached the till. Now let me just paint you a picture here, it's around 5-6 weeks until Christmas? So naturally the world has gone mad  and people are shopping like they're preparing for an apocalypse. Most of the store is standing room only. So anyway, I quickly dashed through the store to the drink isle when this woman and her child were blocking the main isle. I am a polite person. In fact, to say that is an understatement. I am far too nice, I am consistently told this and that it will get me no where in life. So I am stood there being all awkward/British and nice and polite like 'Excuse me, do you mind if I squeeze past'. This goes on for a good minute and this woman is screaming at her child to listen to me and move. So it gets the point where I am like, screw this, and I just squeeze past them. This for some odd reason infuriates this woman even more to the point where she starts directing her anger at me instead of her child. I would love to tell you what she said but I just walked off as I am not going to be the blow of someones bad day. I am sorry people but there is no reason for Christmas shopping rage at all.

6. Britain's Crap Ability To Drive

Yeah you know who you are. If you are one of those crap people that doesn't indicate on roundabouts or can't even effing use a roundabout GET OFF MY BLOG. Every Friday I am in a mad rush home from work to get changed into my dance gear and head out for my dance class. Every Friday some arse either cuts me up on the same roundabout or doesn't even indicate and drives anyway. MORONS. I actually got so angry this week I tailgated someone in a white Nissan Juke for a good 5 minutes until I nearly missed my turn off. I swear one of these days I will actually tailgate someone home just to scream at them for cutting me up/not using their indicators. You have been warned you arses. I mean I am a bad driver but at least I am aware of it. When I honk my horn and swear until I turn blue these people genuinely look shocked at their inability to drive.
So my keyboard nearly exploded with that rant. I wanted to end this post with 2 none frustrated ramblings (Controversial I know) so here it goes:

1. I just bought my first ever car

He is a black Ford Fiesta with more gadgets then the Batmobile. I have always wanted a black car because I wanted to look like batman I want to look serious business so all those morons that cut me up on roundabouts get scared when I start tailgating them home. I've named him Beasty because he looks so fierce and his colour is classed as 'Panther Black'. Or his other nickname will be Cakemobile because I guarantee 90% of his trips will be used to head to cake suppliers to feed my cravings/obsession. I hope we'll be very happy together. And does that mean I have taken my first steps in being a full grown adult?! I mean I actually own 4 wheels. I am so an adult, right???? Right??!

2. Taylor Swifts New Album

Okay I know I just ranted about her gig tickets but I just can't get over her new album. I am a bit touch and go with some of the songs but I LOVE and I mean LOVE 'Blank Space'. My favourite lyrics have to be 'I can make the bad guys good for a weekend' and 'I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream'. They crack me up every time I hear it.  Plus the video is pretty much how every girl has ever felt. Also I recommend listening to 'Style'. The chorus makes me melt.

And from this post we have concluded that I am Wednesday Addams
.
Wow if you made it to the end of this post. I mean seriously, you were actually interested in reading this. I am surprised. Kudos to you. If you have any rants/rambles/general musings, please please please please get off my blog because I don't care. No no no I am totally kidding! I really want to hear them so I don't feel like the only mental woman on this planet.

  1. I have so much agreement with this post, in particular trains! I get to the station at the same time every morning. Some mornings I have more than enough time for a coffee before work, then every other morning I am anything up to 40 minutes late. Arrrrrrgggggg.

    Oh god, and gig tickets. Don't even get me started! :O

    I feel almost better about these frustrations now though, what is it they say about knowing someone else is in the same boat?!

      Knowing 2 people in the same boat? I think it means there are 2 people on this planet that are as insane as each other?...hah

  6. I love this! Aggressive Christmas shoppers are ridiculous. One of my pet hates are people who see you haven't got a seat on the bus and won't move their bag. They then pretend you're invisible... Desperately needing a car haha!
