In my experience with these despicable computers, there is no such thing as security. Karen, I do trust you but not on this. I no longer can trust my doctor because of this and will NOT go to ANY excuse for a professional with so little regard for privacy and personal information. I'm on insulin which is nothing to fool around with. I'll go off the medication rather than be degraded and dehumanized by some worthless piece of unreliable electronic crap. It's just not worth it! This computer crap has gone way too far now and it MUST stop. Why is this insult forced on us? These idiots need to act like the professionals they think they are by letting us decide whether or not we want such personal information compromised.
But, Momcat, did they say their information will be on the Internet? If not, there's no way for a hacker to get into it, other than breaking into the physical building, in which case, they could steal your paper files just as readily!
If you came to my house, you could not access any of the data of my computer unless I was there to type in the password for you. And no, the password is not written down on a Post-It stuck to the monitor, it isn't written down anywhere.

And a lot of chain pharmacies are connected (Walmart, CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreen's) to each other via computers to help with drug interactions. That computer connection could save your life someday. While I understand your frustration I guess I don't understand your hatred of a worthless computer when you are using a worthless computer to make this post. :confused: Good Luck and I hope you find some peace in the situation.

You should be going to college next year. It kills me knowing you won't be experiencing this. I am so sorry. :( May you RIP and you are forever class of 2011.
Love, Alyssa :love:
I am done with you. Stop thinking I like you after all the crap you put me through in middle school. Glad to see you're experiencing all that crap now. I guess karma does work. I don't know why you transferred into one of my classes, because of course I get that luck but I suppose it's luck that it's only ONE course. You're a two-faced pathological lying jerk and I don't want any association with you but I am too damn nice. I wish I wasn't. These days, just LOOKING at you annoys me now-a-days. I just remember all the stuff you did to me and you made my life miserable. I honestly don't know how I made it through Middle School. But whatever, you're getting what you deserve now and I don't care about you. I have found who my true friends are and I don't need you in my life. As far as I'm concerned Graduation day will be the last time I ever see you again. You're a psycho. I can't believe you how much lying you get away with. WHO lies about someone committing suicide? I will never understand but I guess I don't need you. CANNOT. WAIT. TILL. I. NEVER. NEED. TO. SEE. YOU. AGAIN. :)
You are back in my life once more. After six months of not texting me, you randomly text me one day and say you want to hang out with me. Walk around town, have something to eat. You're engaged. It's wrong that you're engaged, but you are. And yet you still want to see me and hang out with me. Can we even be friends? I can't trust you anymore. You've done so much before to make me definitely not trust you...
I want to see you and spend time with you and be friends, I just don't know how I'm going to feel when I'm around you. I'm not sure if I know how to be just your friend.
Maybe we can make this work.
Please leave me alone. I have a lot of work to do tonight and you are not helping :(
Hey... you are teaching an A LEVEL CLASS. These exams are extremely important to us all, and we actually need to be taught something. WE DON'T NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR WEEKEND :mad:. And it may have been ok a couple of years ago when we had no important exams to worry about, but asking us to 'tell you about our weekend so we don't have to get on and do the work' is NOT appreciated. I can understand a student saying that, but a TEACHER trying to get out of doing the work?
And letting us go 20 mins early from a lesson? Well lesson time is for you to TEACH US! We need that time so we know the stuff for the exam. We haven't even been given text books yet so we can't teach ourselves...
Oh and what did you do when you found out no one in the class had done the homework? YOU LAUGHED! How are we ever meant to respect your authority when you laugh? And on the topic of laughing, can you PLEASE stop laughing after everything you say? It is so annoying. And can you please stop acting like you are one of the students. You are not there to become best friends with the group of popular guys in the class.
And for goodness sake, if you want to use an interactive whiteboard in lesson at least learn how to use it instead of making us wait half the lesson for you to work out something which is sooooo simple to do (perhaps if you listen to the class you might work out how to do it).
And please learn to spell the key words we need. They are new words to us. We don't know how to spell them and we need you to spell them correctly so we can get them right in the exam.
Learn to teach us something or retire. I have had you for what... 2 weeks? And you are already driving me (and most the class) insane.

Now I'm starting to realize why I liked you in the first place. You are so much nicer in person than you ever were when we only texted... But I don't know where that's going to lead me. You're engaged. But you're making the decisions here, not me.
I know what I want and I don't know where things are going to go. We can be friends, I'm fine with that, but if you want it otherwise, you've got some things to deal with and a lot of making up to do.
I'm in love with you.
I will always, always be your girl.
But it will never, ever work...
...and it kills me.
Stop judging me. Take a look at yourself first before you evangelize to others. You have a big mouth and a closed mind. Did we grow up in the same house? I find it hard to believe. . .
Dear Deer in my Neighborhood - Could you please not walk along the curb at night. You blend in so well with the trees and leaves that I sometimes don't see you. I really don't want to collide with you! I enjoy seeing you when I drive home from church through the forest preserves on Wolf Road. I am trying to take as many well-lit roads as possible, but the last half a mile worries me t he most.
And if you could just stand still for a second in the morning when you're munching on grass after the landscapers do the lawn in front of my building - I enjoy seeing you and I'd love to take your picture.
Dear Co-Workers ... I enjoy working with you so much! You make me smile, you crack me up with laughter and sometimes you even make me cry. I am blessed to have such a great bunch of co-workers. You rock!
Dear God, could You please bless Isabel and Richard today and all of my other PT friends who need a blessing. You know who they are. Thank You, God for my PT Friends!
