OK this is a really silly thread and I'll just be complaining about anything that comes to mind.
This is also my first thread, and I'm using this as practice for a real
thread down the line.
I want to start by complaining about working in the bar biz. I'm not even a "people-person" though I ended up working a bar. Customers drive me
bat-s-crazy. If you are standing in line to order...get the frack off the phone. I want to smack that device out of your hands and scream at the top
of my lungs. Show some respect. You wish the bar was open longer, I wish you weren't here drinking at noon. And a big FU to my manager for clocking in
an hour late then bailing on us for the rest of the day.
I cannot stand televised sporting events. It's a money grab, and its divisive. People yell at the television, and say things like, "We are a good
team, we just need to play the zone better," or " we will do better next game."
You know what? You don't actually play for the team. You are not the water boy.
Players get hurt then games halt so the injured can be taken off the field. Fudge that. If you are making 6 or 7 figure money, you better be
crawling on the field. I don't care if you've got a compound fracture. Earn that million.
I want to B & moan about phone calls and texts awakening me before the alarm. I want to choke the sunlight that creeps across my pillow. I want to
strangle the rooster who crows without the sun--and similarly the birds singing through the night.
I hate when I'm talking to you and you pull out your cell phone.
I hate when I shake your hand, and you tighten your grip before I've got my hand situated in a proper clasp, and then you think I'm weak or
effeminate, and years later you pass me up for promotion because, after all, first impressions are everything.
I wanna smash yr face when I'm going 5-10 over the speed limit, and you speed by, switching lanes back and forth to get one car ahead.
F that raven with a rusty nail for defecating on my freshly washed vehicle.
It's total BS that my phone battery dies with 10% charge. Why don't you just read "0"?
What gives with members who have been on ATS for a matter of weeks with 1000's of post? You're averaging what, 30 posts a day? No one could
possibly have that many opinions. None worth bothering to type I'd wager. Seriously. This really annoys me and it really should not.
These are a few thoughts that have occupied my brain today. I know it is all fickle, and that I should take a deep breath and go about my day, but
I find myself clenching my jaw even recounting some of these events as I type.
What say you ATSers? Can you relate to any of these? What is your method of coping with these and other stresses?
