Life Doesn’t Suck Right Now

It’s kind of hard to rant when things are going good.  It’s also difficult to have a “Rant” blog when I don’t have anything to rant about.

Oh, I could go on about the elections, the candidates, the VP nominee, but this isn’t a political blog.  There are enough people writing about that and seriously, what could I add to that circus.

I could rant about my DirecTV service and the lousy reception and pixeling I’m encountering, and the delayed reaction using the remote control, but right now, I just don’t care.  Besides, in a couple of months, I’m going to be dropping them all together.

I could go on about buying a bag of potato chips that looks and feels like a full bag, until you open it, let all the air out only to find 3 whole chips and a half a bag of chip crumbs.

I could complain about all the crap that gets put on Facebook.  You know.  Page suggestions, who’s playing what game and all the meme images posted.  I could, but I kind of enjoy some of that crap.

So why is it that life doesn’t suck right now?

Well some of my previous posts have been about looking for work and not getting noticed.  Ads soliciting qualified people in a certain field.  Experience I had, only to be ignored.  Posts about possible ageism and discrimination against the older worker and those who have been unemployed for a lengthy period of time.  Life doesn’t suck right now because I can finally say I’m back to work, full time, in my field with benefits.

Also, and this is huge.  At age 58, I’m one of the young pups at my new job.  With the exception of a few people, like the Big T, a 21 year old, I’m actually one of the younger ones.  It’s great to know that there are companies that value the experience of the older worker and their contributions they (we) have made to the workplace.

While I would love to rant about something evil, or the drama about Chick-Fil-A not being open on Sunday and their views on Gay Rights, or the wars, or who is or isn’t a patriot or why my favorite TV show got cancelled, or why Netflix doesn’t have more to watch, or class warfare, or who in Hollywood is getting married, divorced, having a baby or adopting a child from a third world country, right now I really don’t freaking care.

I’m in a good place right now and for the time being I just want to enjoy that.  I’m sure something will come along shortly that will set me off on a rant and when that happens, you’ll hear about it.

So for now…….Be Happy
