Reasons to whine

I feel like "reasons to frown" is for more serious business, and "grind your gears" is for genuine, deserved anger.

This is for whining, especially about petty things. Complaints, bitching and moaning welcome.

My reasons to whine:

I'm back in school starting today, and it's a sort of orientation week. As usual, it's pretty pointless. I could be sleeping!

My sheese has a spot of mold on it! I opened it a couple days ago, and it's best by date is Aug 5. >:( (I cut that part off, and am now enjoying some sheese)

So do pounding, multiple day migraines. Especially when no one seems to care that you have one.

sometimes those guys are ninjas. I'll have my blinds open, sit right by the door, and I NEVER HEAR OR SEE ANYTHING. I check the door - UPS NOTICE. Did he come down via helicopter?

YES!! The USPS is even worse.

i love the USPS for their delivery confirmation. any time i've gotten it, it's not updated until 2 weeks after delivery! very useful, you guys!

FB: I totally agree. People feel sorry for the post office closing a lot of it's locations. I don't wish unemployment on anyone...they can't get their shit together.

Storm: Did you really work there? I don't think you'd ever slack on your job. Speaking of USPS, I have to get you and veganhippie a gift. I've promised VH a gift for a long time. And then I moved. No excuse for delay but it did delay her gifts. :/

it's weird. sometimes packages that i *know* do not have such restrictions result in a "signature required upon delivery" notice. seems random, or at the discretion of the UPS guy, who can't seem to decide if my area is sketchy or not.

(answer: it is)

A couple of years ago I tried changing banks. My new credit card was delivered by ordinary mail, only the envelope was left on the doorstep. ::) It would have been less visible to passersby in the mailbox. But it would have been better if they'd requested a freakin' signature. (I went back to my first bank not long after, for this and other reasons.)

my fucking phone..... twice now i have left a wealth of shit for everyone to read... (at their discresion of course) realize i made a typo.... hit delete toerase it... and BAM my fucking novel is gone.

my reason to whine the other day and continuing.... no one gives me a verbal answer! my mother especially! if she needs something she whacks me on the arm and expects i can read her mind..... (i gave that shit up long ago, as nothing on anyones mind quite interesed me) ''yes'' ''no'' or ''fuck you'' would be amazing, as i am trying to run this house..... moving the head around inbetween a yes and a no is very hard for me to decipher

and yet again..... damn phone

Yes Joshy, I did really work for the post office.  At the branch where I worked:

The Post Master kept whiskey and vodka in her desk.

One of the clerks had been investigated for molesting her son, was constantly high on prozac, had her name and phone number written on every bathroom wall in the area, used to pull out the little address windows on people's tax refund checks to see how much they got back.

Don't even get me started on the carriers.

I got written up once at the holidays for working through my break after I had clocked out.  Going the extra mile to help out when we were so busy is apparently rewarded with a bitch slap.

Storm, there was quite a scandal in my home town when they discovered the Post Master had rented a mailbox into which she put anything adressed to anyone, that looked like it might be interesting. Like BD cards to people's grandkids that might have money in them.

Back in 1992 when Sevilla had the Expo there were a few parcel bombs that turned up. One was "requisitioned"  by a mail carrier because it was directed to a business on his route,  labelled from an expensive makeup company or something. He took the parcel home to the wife as a present; when she opened it it blew her hands off up to the elbow.
Rough justice?

I am not sure if y'all realize how bad the situation with the government, wall street and banks has gotten?
Its understandable to ignore the tell tale signs and make a good effort to have good life.
Id like to refrain from saying the sky is falling, because humans are very good at adaptation.
But here are a list of stuff I'd like to whine about:

Todays headline "Stocks rise on bets of stimulus". This is horrible, the stock market artificially rises because wall street cowboys are betting on the federal reserve printing more money? Youre joking right? Yes the market goes up today, but if you take the amount of 'money' in the system currently and divide by the new money printed, the value of each 1$ is reduced. I think I recall this from a basic economic course in high school. If your 1$ is devalued, but the price of say an avocado is 2$ today and tomorrow they print more money, say 10% more you avocado goes up .20$ this is with everything. Evenmore so when demand on product increases.

I own(? dosent seem like I own a thing but I am responsible for) a condo. I have a bad mortgage. I signed my john handcock (more and more I fell all I am is a hand cock, getting jerked around).
"It has been almost three years since the near-collapse of the financial markets. Every moment spent indulging false arguments about the causes of the crisis is a moment diverted from the urgent tasks still in front of us: prosecuting violations of law to deter future wrongdoing; enforcing new financial reforms; and remaking the financial system from one of rampant speculation to one that helps create jobs and genuine prosperity for the U.S. Enough is enough." Phil Angelides-bloomberg news

Heres a frightening funny fact. We are still paying off the Revolutionary war. Yep.
"The American tradition of deficit spending goes back to the Revolutionary War, when the colonies financed their rebellion with borrowed money. Shortly after the constitutional system replaced the Articles of Confederation, the federal government took on the debts incurred by the states, an act that sent the new nation’s debt soaring, by most estimates, to a third or more of GDP."

My grandmother always told me money dosent grow on trees, she's right, its printed in a factory and you can flip the 'on' switch whenever the shits looking like its going to hit the fan.

What to do?
Nothing?
Smoke em if you got em?
Hope that there is a value/belief/spiritual system that will reconcile?
I dunno.. all I can say is that I am a wee bit nervous.

On a final high pitch whine note, are you aware that america has shanty towns again?
Plenty of google hits. In the great depression they were call hoovervilles, today called
obamavilles...

2 weekends ago:  13-mile hike with a 2,400-foot elevation gain
I hiked faster than usual and my legs were sore for the week.  Plus, I blistered my heels.

1 weekend ago:  7-mile hike with a 2,000-foot elevation gain
My legs were still sore, so it was hard.  Plus, I majorly blistered my heels.

This weekend:  unknown distance with an unknown slope
My legs are still sore and my heel blister area stings.

Next weekend:  18-mile hike with a 3,300-foot elevation gain
A couple of weeks ago, people had to turn back on the trail I want to do because of the snow/ice, so I can't do this hike next weekend and I possibly won't have time for the rest of the summer.

I dunno EC, I think your post from this morning belongs in a different thread... maybe Reasons to Cry Like a Baby?  or at least the YKWRGMG thread.  I hear ya though! 
Then again, I just generally can't condone this thread...house rule: no whining!  :nono:
