    To Whom It May Concern,

    When someone tells you outright that they don't have access to money, terminate your fundraising shpiel.

    I don't like hanging up on someone but I had to hang up on you because you wouldn't listen!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    There's a big difference between hairballs and sh!t. If you can't tell the difference, quit your job!

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Have you ever had to eat figs to compensate for digestive problems? If not, shut up!

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    I have a cardiac condition which prohibits deadlifting 70#. You refuse to assist me with my weekly litter changes. I refuse to get rid of my feline companions because I fought tooth-and-nail to get/keep them! They are fooking prescriptions!

    To Whom It May Concern #4,

    My cats are fooking prescriptions. If you don't like it, bring it up with all of my doctors, but before you do throw out all of your prescriptions, including your heart medications.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Use your brain before you post something! Be bloody grateful that you weren't bloody fired for what you posted online instead of suspended for a bloody week. You are a respected journalist not just in Milwaukee. Yes, you are entitled to an opinion, but you have to keep it off of your job's social media platform.

    Just because you disagree with Mitch McConnell doesn't give you the right to post what you did about him!

    To Whom It May Concern (and I do mean you Microsoft)

    Since the last maintenance package you forced down my throat, having a default Word Save folder on your PC is impossible no matter what you put in Options:Save. The default will always be OneDrive even if OneDrive is disconnected! You do not get any message that it is going to OneDrive even though OneDrive is disconnected! You just get surprised the next time the internet is down and your files do not exist.

    In this windy part of Pennsylvania cable internet is down all too often. (Like very recently) And satellite internet is not practical. Dish tells me that they would need to cut down dozens of my 75-100 foot trees to get line of sight to their satellite. In this area, as in many areas in PA, there are conservation rules that require you to get a permit to cut down a single dead tree, which is not always granted unless it threatens your house, or get fined a hundred dollars a tree.

    But Microsoft's attitude is that it is always all about them.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    You aren't my physician-of-record. I don't have to explain diddly to you about my medical stuff especially my gender. Keep your opinions about my appearance to yourself before I defenestrate you! Oh, and we were on the bloody eighth floor, overlooking a paved parking lot.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    So you want to go on the outing next month? Get in contact with either your case manager or the person in charge of the program. I'm not going to sell you my ticket to the zoo, especially since I'm going to use the outing as that day's exercise. Oh, and you would be required to wear a mask since you don't have any legitimate reason not to wear one!

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    I am going to "celebrate" American Thanksgiving with my flatmates. They are going to have either turkey-flavoured treats or turkey tinned food to go with their usual crunchies. I'm having a vegetarian feast (I'm mostly vegetarian, which may be why I have little-to-no problem with my heart) and I don't have enough for more than me. Find someone else to celebrate Thanksgiving with. Oh, and keep your liquor because my medications are counter-indicated with alcohol.

    There are more reasons to wear a medical mask than coronavirus. Strep throat is just one. Wear your mask properly.

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    Stop kvetching about politics! The election's over!

    To Whom It May Concern #3,

    You live alone like me. You don't need six giant boxes of breakfast cereal. Put some back!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    First, why were you the only public transit driver to say that my Radio Flyer wagon isn't allowed on public transit? Hell, I brought it on a bus to the store across the street from the stop you picked me up from!

    Second, why weren't you wearing a mask? You are a driver for the public transportation company; you ought to know the rules/regulation about such miniscule things.

    Third, why did you start pulling out when both the front and rear doors were still fully open? Hell, the ramp was still engaged!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Why did you toss your red silk dress in with my load when it's dry clean only? It bled so badly that my :kitty: t-shirt was dyed red (originally it was white) along with three pairs of white socks. Unfortunately for me, I don't know how to bleach out the dye (I didn't put anything in the dryer or hang anything up to dry, and they're starting to stink a bit.)

    Off-topic: what can I use to bleach out the red dye without ruining the :kitty:s?

    To Whom It May Concern #2,

    If you don't want to write down your apartment number, go to the coin laundry down the street and use their machines! I believe that you can sit down there with a book or something while your load is going.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'm a tad nervous about using that stuff on my :kitty: shirt due to the :kitty:s on both the front and the back. Might try the OxyClean stuff, but I don't know if that'll work, then I'll try the Ritt stuff. :oops:

    Lets us know how it turns out. I've not used the Ritt product, but I've had some success with OxyClean on dye stains not yet set. Doesn't seem to harm the original color and prints. In fact, kind of made them seem brighter.

    Almost everything's still pink but not as pronounced (the :kitty: print's relatively unharmed, but I just gave up after soaking everything for close to ten hours when the instructions say soak for six hours tops.) I changed the water once because the first soak was so red that I'm surprised the porcelain tub wasn't stained red! The bloomers seem to have returned to the salmon color, but then again, they might be pink now instead. *shrug*

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Enjoy your Goth outfits. I warned you that I was going to dye everything of yours black if you toss your red stuff in with my laundry. Oh, and I added white vinegar to your load along with the black dye.

    I have my load soaking in my bathtub with OxyClean again. I'm letting it soak until Friday morning before tossing the load in the washer.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    If you don't want the apples that come with your monthly foodshare box, don't take them.

    If you don't have a clue what to do with them, just ask.

    You have one or two pork roasts as part of the box, someone can give you ideas how to pair Red Delicious apples with the meat. Hell, I can, and I can't eat pork. Apples are often paired with cheese, as well. Oh, and Red Delicious are used in apple pie!

    I live alone, so I don't need a third sack of apples!

    Stop calling me about my computer, especially if you're going to use one of those automated voices! I refuse to go through your sh!t just to find out that you hijacked it (no, my computer's safe afaik because I check it daily and my tech-savvy friends check it weekly with my permission.)

    My computer isn't an Apple product, so stop calling me before I delete all of the products associated with your bloody company!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    You're supposed to give at least 24 hours notice to enter my apartment for any reason that isn't an emergency, plus it has to be a written notice.

    Why did you give me an oral notice roughly eight hours from the time of the inspection?

    I hope that they forget that they told me when they were coming. Better yet, they end up in quarantine or the hospital.

    Then again, y'all are responsible for making sure everyone understands the rules of the community laundry!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    I just found out that another person that I vaguely knew (sucks to be faceblind) recently passed away and I was invited to a virtual funeral. To top that, I'm still under the weather.

    In two words, back off.

    To Whom It May Concern,

    Number one, you stepped in dog enuram, not :kitty: enuram. The enuram you stepped in was outside my flat and I won't clean up after someone else's nonhuman companion, especially if it's a dog! It was one of the ESL residents whose dog left his/her "calling card" iykwim.

    Number two, I don't have a car and I cannot bring The Trio on public transportation. On top of that, I don't have a way to pay for a vet's visit either at the flat or in the vet's office (identity theft sucks untreated sewerage water.) Oh, and a few of your favourite residents have forged their nonhuman companions' inoculation records in order to keep their dogs.

    Number three, I know the guy that you were chatting with. He's never owned a business. Hell, he was kicked out of the sheltered workshop that I left back in the early1990s as well as a sheltered workshop that I was affiliated with back in 1987 (the second one was where I learned some computer programming and he was kicked out of a donations sorting program.)

    Number four, don't chew me out for vomiting on your shoes again. Just be grateful that your shoes were the only things that I vomited on!

    To Whom It May Concern,

    A face mask isn't a beard snood. If you cannot wear it properly, stay in your apartment for everyone's sake. Oh, and use your elbow or your shoulder to cover your mouth when you cough. If someone with limited movement due to a stroke can do it, then you can too. I wear glasses and my glasses fog up terribly when I go to the store. I've already stumbled/fell this year on the way to the store...
