I * AM * SO * PISSED * OFF

So, what else is new, you ask.

Yep.  I waste a lot of my life being pissed.  

For instance: There was nothing good on television tonight, so I was pissed.

When there's nothing on, I watch things like Honey Boo Boo and get pissed.


And I didn't WANT to watch what followed, 
but I was HERE and the remote was THERE.

You get the picture.



 THE SIX HUNDRED POUND MOM

 . . . and I got UBER pissed. . .
which is way past Pissville.  

And, "no".  I'm not a fat, lazy, 24/7 television watching, pissed off woman.  My house is clean.  I'M clean.  Meals are cooked and served, and I'm busy DOING things.  

But I NEEDED some zone out TV time, and this was on.

Afterwards I found myself wandering the internet and I googled THE 600 POUND. . . .

And before I could write "FAT ASSED MOM", there were eleven pages flashing her photo and umpteen skinny white folks all upset because MAMA was near death and. . .

"what can we do to help this poor lazy assed woman who demands her children bring her "sum o' dat chinese food wid dah fried rice.....and some KFC fried chiken."

HOW CAN WE HELP HER!!

Then three ambulances arrived with nine men who must risk permanent disability by lifting, sliding, and being careful not to hurt her while loading her in the van.

Why?  Cuz she's going to the hospital to be weighed.

And it's all free.  The hospital had to have a special bed designed for her, and as she lay there complaining about having to eat peas and mashed potatoes, four nurses were rolling her so they could get the yellow and brown stuff cleaned out of her butt crack.

And here Stud and I are, with upcoming surgeries and dental procedures not covered by our health insurance THAT WE MUST PAY FOR, and she's 100% covered and has been for life.

And I have friends and family members fighting cancer that costs out-of-pocket more than they have IN their pockets.

YOU tell ME, who is going to live the longest?  Those who did nothing to GET their diseases, but have to figure out how to pay the exorbitant cost of fighting their disease. . . .

or the one who enjoyed every  moment of eating herself into her whiny, self-pitying situation.

The hospital said that if she didn't go on a diet, she'd be dead within two years.  

With tears rolling down her face, she proclaimed that she was too pretty, and too sexy, to die so young.

I think it would be cheaper, quicker, and more merciful to load up a van of Blue Bell ice cream and chinese fried rice and let her eat it with a shovel.

case solved.

And yet I'm still pissed.

Pass me some of those tater tots.

  1. She really said she was too pretty, too sexy to die young? Really? Since when do those facts entitle anyone to life? My mother was too precious to me to die! She was old (71)and probably not sexy and had lost her looks to age and cancer. So, she can just go off and die?

    Attitudes really annoy me. Why isn't someone coming here, already paid, to save me? Or, you? She whined? I have to learn that life-saving skill!

    It just occurred to me that I am only four years younger than my mother was when she died! Yikes! I need whining lessons.

    1. None of us need whining lessons. We all know how, but we're too busy trying to keep ourselves alive and fear the unavoidable outcome; just around the bend.

      And we get to worry about the cost of it too.

  2. Just like with Honey Boo Boo, I had not heard of the 600 pound mom either.
    Stories like these sadden me. Not because she's near death, but because our society seems to habituate the problem. It's just sad.

    1. And what happens to people like Honey Boo Boo, her mom June, and the 600 pound mama? They get the attitude they are special (in a good way), never realizing we are watching them because we can't look away from a freak show or a train wreck.

  3. I guess I am not in one of my more transcendental frame of minds tonight. I was just wondering how much lamp oil you could get if you had some liposuction equipment. Wouldn't need any Crisco for 50 years! Personally, she should have killed herself with a gun. Half the starving children in Africa could have had a decent meal with the food this thing wasted! Doesn't this just renew your faith in humanity and give you a warm loving feeling all over? your friend, the rat

  4. Well, she didn't get that way without an entourage of cake handlers and fry chefs. I'm betting she'd lose a lot of weight if someone ignored her fat ass and stopped bringing her Oreos in buckets.

    1. She'd sit in her own pooped sheets and get her giant meals stacked high in styrofoam containers that came from fast food restaurants. That alone took money that neither you, Stud or I could afford.

  5. Drives me up the wall too. We have seen programs about people who are living in diet clinics but are allowed to phone out for food! Hopw dumb is that?

    1. Self-entitlement is enabling people to live whatever lifestyle they choose, while the rest of us trudge onward, in whatever lifestyle we can afford.

  6. THAT is what's wrong with our society today. We seem to promote and make people like Honey Boo Boo and momma fat ass there into some sort of role model or martyr and we are supposed to feel sorry for her. It used to be "Survival of the Fittest", not fattest?

    1. Honestly, the day is coming when this world will collapse upon itself. Those of us who have supported "those people" all our lives are going to die without proper care. Then who will take care of "those people"?

    2. Whoever winds up taking over this rock after all the people with common sense or half a brain have left. And, in my opinion, they can have it.

  7. I hear you Lottajoy....I do not have insurance so I shop around when I need a doctor and negotiate because I pay cash. I quit work to care for the Marine. I could not pay those Cobra prices. I did have a pay nothing much policy for awhile when I was hospitalized for double staff pneumonia. My out of pocket expenses was over $12000.00 just for the hospital. It took me a few years but I paid that bill. I have a stepson who lived on our property briefly. He uses the emergency room like a doctors office. The bills come here and now the bills from the collection agency. When he wanders in once a month or so he opens them and tosses them in the garbage. The woman on that show, my stepson and thousands like them are what is wrong with the healthcare system and why you and I are punished for trying to do the right thing.

    We have a right to be pissed!

    1. You just gave me an idea for my next post. I have read about your marine, and where is HIS help? He gave the ultimate and got the least.

      We're at odds with those who give nothing and get the most.

    2. The caregivers of wounded warriors who are coming home now are getting paid to care for their loved ones and also provided with health insurance. My son does get 100% VA disability pay but if the 3 of us could work at our regular jobs our pay would be much more than what he receives a month. If there were no income I would have picked up cans along the roadside to keep him home rather than put him in a government facility.

      PS...I really can spell at times. I had double staph pneumonia not staff...

    3. I can see you, me, and all our readers gathering cans at the side of the road. There's no shame in that, but they way people carry on, you'd think it was lower than being a child predator.

  8. Wow, from a purely medical standpoint, she would be a tough patient. She would need a custom hospital bed, and the extra large cuff we use on patients would not be large enough. Did she eat herself that way or does she also have a serious endocrine problem ? She is larger than anyone I have ever seen in the medical books.

    1. I'm almost happy about not being a nurse or a caregiver because, I swear, I would be terribly busy and just out of reach when it came time to hook up her oxygen. Case solved.

  9. I watched that series, and I'm wondering if you saw the last episode.

    She cannot move from her bed, yet she continues to gain weight. How is that possible? (She has neighbors and family physically close by.)

    Drugs are not the only thing you can be addicted to, obviously.
    Food and political power are also on that list.
    And the sooner this economy fails, the sooner we can get back to some form of normalcy. But getting there will truly be HELL for those that aren't paying attention.
    I'm glad you're paying attention. Now how do you defend yourself in that house?

    1. With all the floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors, we'd be more likely to defend ourselves by standing outside in the middle of the street.

  10. According to Google....she died from this condition in March of 2012. She had lost over 100 lbs in readiness for her surgery and while waiting....she managed to GAIN back over 200 lbs in one month so then it put her OVER the 600 mark. Unbelievable. Especially the part about flying her back to Miami from.....was it Haiti?..... in the cargo hold of the plane because there was no other way she'd fit otherwise.....unknown how she made the trip in the first place.

    1. AFTER I hit 'publish" I read the same article you did. Isn't it amazing how well she can travel when someone else has to do the pushing, loading and moving? Hopefully her daughters are celebrating instead of looking for a way to sue the doctors, hospitals, airlines and the government.

  11. Err, I understand your piss-off-ness. I understand why this would piss off anybody. I wonder though, just because I'm me and I'm in a sympathetic mood today... if she had a mental illness. I KNOW she had to have one. She must have. It is the only way I could rationalize anyone behaving like this.

    1. Get outta that sympathetic mood darlin. There's folks who didn't ask for what they got and can't afford to get rid of it. THOSE (and us) are the one to have sympathy for.

      She died like she lived, eating free, thinking how sexy she looked, and we had to pay for the extra-sized coffin.

  12. Both of these stories are sad commentaries on society.

    1. Probably more sad for the few who accept the burden the government has laid upon them to take care of the hopeless.

  13. I had to work with a man when I did home health, that weighted 600 lbs. Later, I told my supervisor I thot he had gained, and sure nuff, he had,,to over 700. He was just 42,,so sad, but,,,the government supported him because he was fat!

    1. And it's not like they're paraplegics and deserve help. At 700 pounds, it's impossible to lose all that weight and, if he did, think of the bill to remove 300 pounds of excess skin!

  14. Some of us expect to have everything we want. She sure did and got a lot more than she needed.

    1. And a few of us live by the adage: "enough is plenty" or, "I can do without".

      Self-entitlement has everything they want. I'm just happy to have what I need.

  15. I can't honestly even begin to fathom how a human being could possibly let themselves soar to such hideous heights, and then expect the government to flip over the funds for continous medical treatment. America has far too many super sized people flopping about. They will crush what's left of an already pathetic and poor medical system.

    All our healthcare expenses are paid for by the government and it's just one of many reasons I am grateful to be Canadian !

    1. Yes, Helga. ALL should be paid for by the government or NONE. The problem in the US is the have-nots end up having more than the ones who supply their needs.

  16. I just can't imagine how much food each of her 'people' gave to her to make her that fat. Heck, I am miserable when I'm 10-20 pounds overweight so I can't even begin to understand how she can breathe with all that weight on her heart & lungs! I've said before ... "I'll buy bigger pants, but I refuse to buy bigger underwear! When it comes to that, the cutting back begins. I'm about ready to start cutting right now! .... after dinner"

    1. I gained a lot when I became diabetic and had to start taking shots of insulin. In the meantime, while I feel embarrassed for being 30 pounds overweight, there are those 400 pound women who believe they're goddesses.

  17. I wonder if the gubment paid for her tattoos too. You see, that doesn't piss me off. I would have to care what happened to her to be pissed. I don't! But you are so right about the free for her and the cost for people who have worked hard all their life and deserve the perks of old age...not that we are old yet.

  21. I saw this post had 48 comments and I just knew there would be at least one person who would get all indignant and butt-hurt and try to defend this idiot woman. Maybe I should do it just to be a troll, would make for some interesting debate wouldn't it?
