a little rant

Some of you may recall that I work at a veterinary clinic.

As you might imagine, we get a lot of characters, ranging from the snarly old guy who's mad because the ACO (animal control officer) is making him get his dog a rabies vaccination (hello? There ARE rabid animals out there and we DO NOT want to euthanize your dog because you were too cheap and too stupid to vaccinate it) to the woman who takes her little foo foo dog every effing place she goes and buys it little coats and outfits that make us all want to stick our fingers down our throats.

We get rich people, poor people, people who love their animals and those who still think it's 'cruel' to neuter their dog - but it's ok that millions of unwanted animals are euthanized every day as a direct result of...wait for it...intact dogs and cats (surprise surprise).

And then we get the women - young, over-endowed, muffin-topped as well as older, immense and sagging - who come in wearing a low cut top that displays every bit of cleavage they've got - which we really aren't interested in seeing, mind you - as well as any tattoos they have in places maybe only their boyfriends should see, who then proceed to bend over and give us all a glimpse of ...well you get the idea. Worse is when they take their cell phones out of said cleavage, or, worse yet, remove money!!! Sorry. NOT sexy or cute or anything else except GROSS!

if only it was all kittens 

and puppies


  1. Makes you wish you just dealt with the animals, right?
    Looking forward to your picks for the blogfest on Monday!

  2. At least they didn't pull a chihuahua out of their cleavage...yet. But, yeah, not attractive at all. Bleh.

  3. That is SOME cleavage to hold mobile phones and money..! LOL!!!

    Awww yay for kitties and puppies!! Take care

  4. there should be a prescreening class with an exam to adopt and care for animals (nevermind procreate)
    dont get me stah-ted!

  5. Wow...I had no idea. Sometimes it seems dealing with the animals is easier, huh? :)
    Edge of Your Seat Romance

  6. Alex and Raquel, yes, we often wish the animals just came by themselves, lol.

    Old Kitty, it was, but in a bad way.

    RaShelle, interesting is a good word. Horrifying is another.

    Tara, oh yeah, I could totally get on my soapbox - but I won't!

  7. Same crowd at the library. Go figure.

  8. Danette, I admit I'm a little surprised. You'd think there would be a slightly high class of people frequenting the library. Guess not, huh?

  9. You could always picture them as puppies and kittens under a spell which makes them look human and sagging with tatoos. There is much to be said for the power of imagination. :)

  10. I don't know what my problem is but I so much hate this thing of letting one's mammary glands hang out as if they were something nice to look at.
    Now that that's out of the way, what is wrong with people who think it is okay to let there pets have millions of babies only so they can later be put "to sleep". And the same actually goes for the over-population of the human species. What is wrong with us?

  11. Today an elderly lab/hound came up our drive and parked himself on our front porch. All slobbery and without hair on his back side, he just sat and panted (drooled) while we sat outside and I cut my daughter' nails. When we went inside I said to him, "Time to go home old boy." And he did. No discussion.
    Animals are so much more clear and do not take offense when it is time to go home.

  12. If only is right. My mouth would probably drop if I saw someone taking a cell phone out of their cleavage!

  13. Laila, lol.

    Towanda, sometimes they are nice to look at - but not falling out of a blouse at a veterinary clinic.

    QE, a new friend, maybe?

    Kim, yeah, pretty gross imho.
