    To Whom It May Concern,

    I am not going to risk getting hit by any sort of vehicle just to catch your bus. I've been hit by a car twice in uncontrolled intersections; I'm not going to risk crossing against the light in a very busy controlled intersection. Because you took off before I could cross, I missed my connection for my new doctor's office. Worse yet, the third bus was delayed by a three-locomotive freight train!

    Before anyone asks, two bus drivers did that. The person I saw was grateful that I gave her a "heads up" that I was running extremely late.

    To Whom It May Concern #2
    Please check the form letter with the doctor's contact number. We (the person I was seeing) and I only had roughly ten fooking minutes together without your interruption!

    A$$hat,

    Do Not Aggressively Panhandle Inside A Restaurant!

    Threatening
    people just because they won't give you money may get you killed nowadays! And you wonder why the owner and staff keep calling the police on you as well as have fooking banned you from their place of business!?

    I wish that I had a smartphone on me to videotape the entire incident.

    Neighbor,

    You don't have my sympathies concerning bedbug inspections. If I have to have a dog poking his/her nose into everything, you do, too. Especially if you've brought bedbugs into the complex at least twice. Hell, I have even more of a right not to have a dog in my apartment!

    "Why?" you ask?

    I'm fooking allergic to them. You're inconvenienced; I could die. Hell, I had to reschedule my ophthalmology appointment due to being in the ER (I collapsed due to the dog's dander covering the carpeting.)

    An aside: I'm physically okay after getting a prescription-strength antihistamine in my lower right "cheek" iykwim.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Santa Claus Conquers The Martians isn't a movie that I'll watch without the cast of MST3K giving a running commentary in the background. That was how I watched it the only time that I did see it, and the MST3K cast made the whole thing worth it. Don't expect to see me next Thursday in the community room.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I need to renew my state ID plus Tovarish needs to see a vet due to the fact that it is part of the lease agreement. Put up or give my case to someone competent. Just because you're allergic to cats doesn't give you the right to deny her reasonable care.

    Oh, and by the way, the salon that we went to has been closed for at least a month. Wake up and smell the fooking coffee!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I don't have any cigarettes (I've never started smoking due to asthma) nor do I have spare cash for a pack. Stop "asking" me for a fooking cigarette!

    Secondly, it's none of your fooking business whether or not I identify as a woman. You're not my mother!

    Thirdly, if someone keeps shrugging, they just might not understand you.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    The gas/petrol station and convenience store has security cameras monitoring the premises. The worker knows what's going on. He'll take care of it. It's part of his job.

    To my local PBS affiliate:

    I enjoy the old Brit-coms very much, but please stop distorting them to fit a 16.9 format. Feel like I'm watching the lollipop guild from munchkin land....!

    Attention Walmart shoppers:

    Are you as tired as I am having to dodge rude and pushy cable/internet salespeople when you're trying to shop? Especially when you only came in for bread and a gallon of milk! :mad:

    I have a similar problem with insurance people when I'm asking about renter's insurance and they keep telling me that I'd save more if I "bundle" with auto insurance (I would be stupid to buy auto insurance when I don't even have a car because I can't drive.) :mad:

    I mean, what part of "No" don't they understand?

    So I'm making my way to the checkout with my milk and bread when I see this jerk frantically waving at me. "Jeez, another cable/internet rep hawking his wares," I thought to myself as it's an all too common occurrence there. Anyway, I do my level best to ignore him. Does he take the hint? Hell no! Jumps out in front of me and demands to know who my cable/internet provider is. Politely, but firmly I inform him that it's none of his business and keep walking. So he follows me and mockingly asks, "How much does none of your business charge you a month?" I did not respond, but did give Walmart's online customer service rep an ear full!

    Bad enough I'm bombarded with junk mail from the same service provider as well as reps knocking on my door from time to time, now I get harassed by them in the stores I shop. Get a clue people... that was the main reason I discontinued my phone service with you last year! Of course when I did, my request to cancel was met with yet another sales pitch...:rolleyes:

    A$$hat,

    Without a woman, you wouldn't be here. Your overt mysogyny is unwelcome on public transportation, especially around women! You're d@mn lucky that you weren't thrown off the bus right into traffic.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Why didn't you inform me that the restaurant that the Friday morning group met at went out of business December 30th of last year? You know that I only go on the first Friday of each month. If nobody informs me of the new place, I'm going into the local cat cafe and spend five hours gathering as much dander as possible, then go into our meeting at the office. (Side note: both of my caseworkers are highly allergic to cats, as are several of the clients.)

    Idjits,

    Why did you risk being hit by several vehicles to catch a fooking bus? I mean, running across a very busy intersection against the light (busy as in three lanes each way)... Yes, it was cold today, but that's not a legitimate excuse. I was hit by a car roughly a couple of years ago not far from that particular intersection, and it wasn't fun.

    A$$hat,

    Stop stalking me. I'm not interested in you, and I'm getting less interested each time I see you. Do I need to get a taser or pepper spray? Hell, you've been warned by several police officers about your behavior.

    A$$hat #2,

    Shut up about how women are worthless and should be eradicated. You wouldn't be here without a woman. Your mysogyny isn't welcome.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    What part of "Snow Emergency" don't you understand? Slow the fook down! :mad: You almost hit several school-age kids! Plus you hit the postal worker's vehicle!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    I haven't had any contact with my sister for over a decade. Why would I send her to my brother's residence? Anyway, I have told him to keep up with his seizure medications and get a specially trained dog until I was blue in the face. I give up on him.

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    Two people have already died while shoveling snow. I have a cardiac condition. Get and/or borrow a snow blower. Better yet, hire a professional (it may be worth it!)

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Thank you for leaving a nasty bruise on the inside of my arm. I've had it since noon Friday, and it doesn't look like it's going to fade until next Friday (at the earliest.) I don't need this from a fooking blood draw.

    Neighbor,

    You've shown both Grease and Mamma Mia four times each in the community room. We don't have to be subjected to the repeats again. If you need another movie, I have a few that nobody has seen before AFAIK. You had a captive audience pretty much.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    You knew that some of us cannot eat supreme pizza for one reason or another. It's even worse when the pizzas expired several months ago. I was the only one not to eat said pizzas since I brought my own lunch (a noodle bowl with gochujang sauce and Korean-style vegetables [delicious!], but not enough to share.) Check the expiration dates of everything in the community room's freezer and discard anything more than six months past the date, okay? You might save neighbors' lives, especially if the item in question was recalled for some reason.

    Boss brings their pet into the office, without announcing they would do so. It is a cute animal, it wanders around the office space, and some co-workers are afraid to walk past it in the hallway. I talk to the boss, they rein in the pet, all is nice again. Over lunch, I get into an argument with another co-worker who can't see how this was initially handled badly ("But you have one yourself! And it didn't actively bother anybody!"). Arrgh!

    If the boss's pet is/was a dog and I worked there, the office would have some interesting visitors (EMTs) because I would stop breathing. There are people who are actually allergic to dogs.

    Then there are people who are afraid of dogs because they were fooking bit by a dog, so they have PTSD associated with dogs.

    No-one had an allergic reaction, fortunately, but there was at least someone who was visibly reluctant to walk past the pet. I hope for them it's not PTSD.

    Yeah, that was not handled well, imo. Good for you Cino, for improving that situation by speaking up.

    I once had a student with a serious dog allergy and a new student on the same grade team who had a service dog. They lasted only 2 days together before the one with the allergy switched to home schooling. By next year the student with the service dog had moved and the dog-allergic student came back to school. Not many good options in a small school where you have every class with the same people.
