    Followed by the offender having his mouth duct-taped to his truck's tailpipe for half an hour while someone revs the engine.

    Glad to help... How about Emma, the medical student with a sense of entitlement? She was very happy to take my prompt payment for a poxy £10 item on ebay, but "too busy" to post said item "I'm a medical student" until the estimated arrival date... Only, turns out she dropped it off for the Post Office staff to post. Didn't arrive. Again, "too busy" to get onto the PO until 3-4 days after I opened a case with ebay... and guess what? The Post Office staff had been "too busy" to err... POST the item! Or so she says... THIS is gonna be a Doctor????

    Ah, turn signals. If only I were a quantum physicist...

    See, there's a field of energy in the universe. It's comprised of energy. The auto companies decided to use this field of energy to power turn signals. But it's not a very dense field. If someone is using their turn signals a couple block over, or you are, then it's likely that there isn't enough turn signal energy to power the turn signals of that dork in front of you.

    There is a single known emitter of energy into this field. I used to think that it was emitted by a special alternator on police cars. That's because there's always more turn signals lit up when a polics car is around. But now I know that this energy is emitted back into the field by donuts. Ye,s donuts. Have you ever seen someone turn into a donut shop's parking lot without their turn signal on? That you can remember? Thought not.

    Sorry, no complaints today. My life is rockin'.

    After almost twenty years up here, I still can't trust people's use of turn signals and it really bugs my wife. It is true, I live in a strange vortex where everyone uses their turn signals correctly and the natives somehow know that.

    Okay, back to Jamie Black's griping. I'm about to whack the next person yacking on a cell phone at the next table over in a restaurant. Good thing my BP meds have worked so far. :mad:

    Ahh, I feel better now. :D

    I have my share of CRAPTACULAR weeks as well. So I bought a Molskine book and started to write down the things that bother me, or incidents that really pissed me off. I find once I write it down I excised the anger out of me and safely into the book. I call it my "Nexus of Negativity"

    If someone is pooping in a stall in a public bathroom, don't occupy the stall next to them. If you can, skip a stall.
    Of course....If it's an emergency, then you've got to do what you've got to do.

    Just say no to Group Poop.

    People that wait till you turn, even when my blinker is on and they don't have to wait for me. Hellohoo, turning on my blinker is a courtesy for you.

    Well, once you get hit a couple of times by people who had their blinker on, you learn to wait and see that they are not deaf and blind as well as stupid...

    Would The Forum Mind Doing Some Griping For Me?

    OK, well ya' see I bought this brand new Fender Stratocaster and wouldn't ya' know it. Dem bums shipped it out with a crooked neck plate!!!! :mad: Now, what kind of QC is that for a company tryin' to sell me a $1200 guitar? And when I called them on it they didn't even care. They just dissed me. :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Sorry, didn't have a gripe of my own so I had to borrow one instead. :twisted: :D

    Snow, snow and more snow. And cold, too. No relief for a week. At least the fridge is well stocked and I don't have to go anywhere until Monday. But still. Gripe, gripe, grumble, grumble!

    I got a new shoreline gold '60's Stratocaster in the mail yesterday. A totally unexpected gift from my friends in Hawaii. What's the problem? See picture...
