Some people are truly put on this earth to make life miserable for others.  This, I truly believe.  I have people like this in my life; I will call them the DarkSide.  The individuals from the DarkSide have said some things that are truly hurtful.  Compared what they have said in the past this may seem extremely minor, but still it's just another reason you shouldn't have to like, or pretend to like people - even if they are related some how to you.

The latest offering from the DarkSide comes in relation to my little guy's Christmas list.  Yes, the list is large, but his birthday is in April and I figured that rather than create a whole new list in a few short months it would be easier to edit this one as his tastes change.  But I digress, that is not the issue that led to the snide comments.  The issue that was taken was with two items on the list, both motorcycles.  Yes, I know my little guy is too small for the bigger of the two and it really was more of a joke given that someone from the HappySide of the family has a Ducati motorcycle. 

Instead of looking at the fact that there are items for as little as $5 on the list, that is has everything from crayons to CDs to books to new bedding on the list, or that you spent twice as much on other children as directly related to you - you choose to offer snide comments about the fact that I have a $330 motorcycle on the list?!?!?!  I don't like you.  You irritate me.  You have never once come to see my son since he's been home from the NICU.  You didn't share his first Christmas or first birthday - you did with the other children, but not my son.

And don't even get me started on how anything that comes out of your mouth is a criticism.  Instead of supporting me in creating a charity in memory of my son, you offer unwanted and unsolicited opinions.  Have you given so much as $1 to help?  NO!  You are an awful person, you come from an awful person and I truly hope karma puts you and those like you in your place.  Oh, and I hop karma whispers my name when it happens so you know I was thinking about you.

Really, since when do doctors do exams in nightclubs?

Fake doctor jailed for giving breast exams in bars
By Laura Zuckerman Laura Zuckerman
SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) – An Idaho judge has set bond at $100,000 for a Boise woman police say posed as a physician and duped at least two other women into having their breasts examined by her at Boise-area nightclubs.
Kristina Ross, 37, remains in Ada County Jail in Boise on two felony counts of practicing medicine without a license.
Police say Ross introduced herself to victims -- one at a downtown Boise bar and the other at a nightclub in a Boise suburb -- as a plastic surgeon named Berlyn Aussieahshowna, a name that turned out to be bogus.
The two women told Boise officers they believed Ross was a physician because of her apparent medical knowledge, and they agreed to undergo what they thought were breast exams, which happened at the bars.
As part of her ruse, Ross gave the women the telephone number of a real licensed plastic surgeon in Boise, the state capital, authorities said.
Staff at that medical office became alarmed at the number of calls they received from women in recent weeks attempting to confirm appointments or surgeries with a Berlyn Aussieahshowna, according to charging documents.
Medical workers on Tuesday alerted Boise police about the pattern, and they later arrested Ross.
The suspect's gender is unclear. Idaho court records show that Ross was arrested for petty theft in the spring and that the arrest warrant was issued to a Kristoffer Jon Ross.
The Idaho Statesman website reported that Ross has a previous criminal record as a man but identifies herself as a woman and was booked into Ada County Jail as a female.
Cosmetic surgical procedures Ross discussed with victims after she touched their breasts under the guise of a medical evaluation included breast augmentation and liposuction.
The court on Wednesday found Ross was eligible for a public defender and set a preliminary hearing on the two felony charges for December 1. If convicted, Ross could face a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 for each count

Cute, right?  How about a "Nice" certificate to go with it?  I'm not crazy about the ones I could find for free (I did link the one below to the site I found it on), so I am going to make my own.  Are you interested?
