I work as an entertainer and I am quasi-famous in certain circles. Over time I have learned that some people are going to be asses. What is important is not to be an ass back to them. Be professional. Be poised. I am always annoyed when I see someone react unprofessionally in a situation. Chill out. Don't let someone control your emotions - you need to keep them in control.

Ask me for something that I can't provide and then when I tell you that I can't provide it act like I am lying.

Hey, if I have something, I will give it to you if it is within my power, I am a giver by nature, but like my mom always said growing up, "You can't squeeze blood out of a turnip."

I am constantly annoyed at how many people can't spell my name?

I call sales reps all day and they say what is your name? And I say, "Eddie Renz, R-E-N-Z" and they respond "R-E-N-C?" How many words in the English language end in C? Or other languages for that matter? If it happened only once a day it would be one thing, but every single day is another. And then there is the RUIZ. It's like people don't even look at my name, they see this big brown guy and they assume my last name is RUIZ. I have no Spanish or Mexican blood in me.

Errr... I can NEVER find a post office when I need one and when I do find one here in Dallas, it is always stuck back off the road all obscure and hidden and I normally pass it like 8 times before I see it. Even with a map today I got lost and ended up going to a UPS store and almost hugged the cashier.

I am thinking about going into the business of selling dead horses and really big sticks to beat them with.

I am tired of hearing about Hurricane Katrina, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, and the rising price of gas.

I don't mind being informed, but man the overwhelming details over and over and over again does nothing for me. I can't look at the face of the news anchor and think that they aren't loving this tragedy because it is great for their ratings.

I guess in my old age I am getting a little cynical.

If I am looking at a rack of clothes in the mall, don't come right up next to me and look at the pair of pants RIGHT NEXT TO the pair I am looking at.

A. You are invading my space bubble
B. You need to wait your turn you impatient moron
C. Getting this close to me annoys me and when you annoy me you suddenly appear on the endangered species list.

Endangered Species List

1. Shopping Morons
2. Duck Billed Platypus
3. Blue-footed Booby

You get the idea.

I am tired of The Real World being so... so, vapid.

I do expect a group of young college students to go out and party. I expect them to get drunk and fight and call up their families and whine about what a nightmare their lives are, but don't you think that they would at least try to change up the show a bit?

Every season these kids are stuck in a monstrously wonderful house, then they are forced to go into bars and party, and then I am sure they are coerced into making out with each other, and it's just the same thing season after season.

Perhaps the reason they haven't changed it is because people are still watching it, but trust me MTV, eventually even the kids that are stoned out of their minds are going to want to watch something more entertaining, I just don't think it has sunk in yet that you guys are going to come up with anything new. We are waiting for something fun and new and exciting and each week it is the same thing, Tiffany is in love with her roommate and her boyfriend back home is Jealous. WE ARE OVER IT ALREADY!!

The only other show that can be any more boring than The Real World is That 70's House. Talk about a stinker. I am annoyed by the fact that I actually watched 20 minutes of it last night, 20 minutes that I could have been watching some other reality TV that was actually worth watching. I actually think The Simple Life is more entertaining than That 70's House.

Really MTV, where has all your creativity gone?

I got up this morning and decided to go to breakfast at Le Madeline here in Plano. I love going to breakfast alone with a good book. I always get the croque martin and potato galette - not really diet food, but I run it off later in the day.

Anyway, I get their this morning and this old couple and their granddaughter are in line ahead of me and we are the only customers in line and they tell me to go in front of them because they can't make up their minds. So I proceed to the front of the line and the manager is hustling around doing a lot of nothing and he finally goes back to the old couple and waits on them despite the fact that they told me to go in front of them! Ugh. I was so upset with him - he should have asked, "Who's Next?" or something if he was confused about the situation.

So then I finally get to order and they don't have what I want and they say, "It will take 10 minutes to make it" - she says it like she is hoping that I will change my mind to something else and I reply, "That's fine."

30 minutes goes by and I am reading away in my book and the food never arrives. I storm up to the counter and demand my money back. Apparently this happens all the time or I looked like I was ready to explode because the guy didn't even bat an eye - he immediately started gettting my money back.

Needless to say, Le Madeline is on the top of my $h!t list for a good while. They are already pretentious and over-priced and so they can't afford to give bad service.

Leaving I thought I had their customer service number and I didn't so I am going to go back up there and ask for both the number and the managers name and then I am going to make a phone call - because if you don't stand up when you are wronged, then you are telling that person that the wrong they did was alright.

Recently my friend Maksim - the Russian - experienced what I like to call "The inconsiderate user".

The Inconsiderate User is someone who calls you up and has you go out of your way to help them, and then doesn't have the decency to help you help them.

In Maksim's case it was a friend who had asked him to drive over and work out with him - Maksim didn't need to work out, but he was doing it out of the goodness of his heart, but then when it came time to actually workout, his friend kept wasting time talking to other people in the gym, thus wasting his time and Maksim's time.

This my good friends is the quickest way to annoy me, and I will only allow it once. If it happens just once in our relationship, then you will have tainted the friendship in the worst way, you might as well have come into my house and kicked my dog.

I was in a meeting the other day and I heard this lady say, "Well, it's a powerpoint presentation, there is no need to put a highly skilled resource on a job like that."

I wasn't in a place to say anything, but I wanted to say, "Excuse me? Not highly skilled?" I think that in order to do a really nice PowerPoint you do have to be highly skilled. And it wasn't what she said, it was the condescending way that she said it, as if the people that are making the PowerPoint aren't as important as the people viewing the PowerPoint - that is what I found annoying.

Don't blog for 2 weeks straight. People, I need updated blogs, the most you are allowed to take a break is 2 days without explanation. If you are on a blog hiatus, then you need to warn us - that way we can mark our calendars and set reminders of when we can expect for you to come back.

My stomach turned every time I heard someone make fun of Camilla Parker Bowles and her marriage to Prince Charles. Every time they mentioned her they made jokes like she was ugly or man-ish and I couldn't help but think, "How Utterly Cruel". Here is this woman who is already A. A woman - don't they have enough insecurities fresh out of the womb? B. Marrying a Prince - She knows everyone is going to be expecting some hottie C. Getting Married to the love of her life, can we not just be happy for her?

I am insensed by the insensitivity of the media and the human race, nothing is sacred anymore, not even love. We must rip it to shreds, step on it, and make it into something humorous so we can make it through our own tragic lives.

Don't even get me started at how furious I am that I can't move my iTunes songs from my laptop to my desktop at home. I already have iTunes on my home computer AND I used the same account password and login on both computers, however, in order to move new music from one computer to another you have to have an internet connection and I don't have an internet connection on my desktop - UGH! And I can't get my good speakers to work on my laptop so I have to listen to my music through headphones if I want it to sound good. iTunes - I LOVE TO HATE YOU.

Hey Guys and Gals-

I love Blogger and for some reason it seems very slow lately and today I can't get it to let me publish on my Posted Note Site at all, but it will let me post on some of my sub sites that are smaller than the main posted note site.

I get this error.

Spit Snuff bags in the Urinal...

There are these little bags of snuff that you put in your mouth so that you dont' have to get your hands all dirty by pinching a big pinch of tobacco. Well, why is it so hard to spit them out in the trash can? If you spit them in the urinal then some poor cleaning person has to go and dig them out - they won't flush! And that is just not cool, especially to do it at work, very lame whoever you are, VERY LAME!!!

Knock on my front door. I don't know why but I equate knocking on my door with the alarm from an alarm clock. I hate them both. I ESPECIALLY HATE IT when people knock continuously, like when they know you are in there and so they decided to knock until you answer- OH. MY. WORD. Thank God in Heaven that I do not own a gun because sometimes I think I might would snap.

Disclaimer: I never really would snap- just in case this page is being read by someone in the FBI that might think I am the unabomber's cousin or something. Ted Kaczynski was the Unabomber, who's reign of terror continued for over 18 years, I have never been committed to anything for longer than about 4 years, and I have never been violent, only mildly agitated when someone knocks too long on my door.

I am sleeping at Cody's house last weekend and all of the sudden I hear my horn going off on my truck. This is the 4th time I have had to jet out in the cold, unlock my doors, and turn the steering wheel so that the horn will stop blaring. I finally ripped the cover off the horn and removed the wires- which was surprsingly easy to do. I have no horn, and I have no more annoyances.

Today while backing out of our parking space this young girl was driving and she wouldn't stop. We were in a convertible and so I looked at her like "Are you insane?" and she kept driving like she was in some sort of catatonic, I don't see your crazy face state- Even crazier was the my friend was driving his friends convertible and he wasn't stopping!!! I just new we were going to hit them, by some miracle we managed to get ahead of her without killing her. I would have just let the insane woman pass, but my co-worker friend wasn't having any of that...

I get very annoyed when I call someone for help and they say dumb stuff like, "Do you have the device with you" after I just said, "I am calling for a customer who is in Japan." Then after I very nicely explain, "I just told you the customer is in Japan" respond with, "Well, do you have the device?" How hard is it to infer from what I am saying that I DON'T. HAVE. THE. DEVICE. This particular lady had the nerve to continue to argue with me about not having the device and how it is always best to have the freaking device!!! She made me want to scream.

I am annoyed by those people that come up to me after I have specified what to bring to a party and then they ask questions like- "How much should I bring?" "What do you think I should bring?" etc. I mean, if you are over the age of 25 hopefully you have been to more than one party in your life- you should not need guidance- and you surely shouldn't need it from someone 10 years younger than you- methinks maybe you are doing it just to ANNOY me.

Welcome to Posted Note, the story of my life. Some details might be exaggerated, but a thread of truth always remains.
