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)

yabbit - You should make them pay for a non-refundable block of classes up front, then showing up is up to them but you're not out.

That's a good idea.  This is how I pay for baby swimming lessons, but if you let them know in advance that you can't make it they let you reschedule for sometime within that week for free or you can pay $3 to have the missed class added to the end of your block.

ya or at least some sort of deposit so their flakiness isn't a burden for you!

Thanks, gals, but it's hard enough to get paid at all, if I ask for money in advance they will just say "I'll call you back" and I'd have no students at all.
I don't really mind her flaking because I know what she's like, rather have her definitely gone for 3+ weeks than chopping and changing all the time. And if someone more dependable shows up, she's history.

I have a headache that has to be felt to be believed. I feel like someone chopped me in the forehead with an axe. It's not a standard-issue migraine, though. I took some ibuprofen but nada.

It's 6:30 am.  I have to make breakfast, pack my husband's lunch, drive him to work, drive back (okay, it's like a 5 minute drive,  but I'm still whining because it's cold out), do the dishes, bathe and dry the puppy,drop by the bank to deposit his check and grab money, and get Chomsky to the vet by 10 (~20 min drive), come back, clean house, have lunch, clean house more, pick-up hubby from work, drive him to get his new glasses, come home and make supper. >_< buhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. DON'T WANT TO.  I swear sometimes house-wifery is harder than having an actual job...even without kids. Just wish I could get paid for it :/

Housewifery IS a real job. In France because of declining birthrates, they tried to offer women a salary to be SAHMs until the child is 4, old enough to go to state school. They realised that what with "overtime" (ie 24/7/365), working weekends and holidays, heavy lifting (groceries, housework, toddlers) and dangerous chemicals (household cleaners etc), if they paid women according to the regulations, a housewife would be earning money like a CEO. They couldn't afford it.

Any woman is a housewife who has kids has 2 jobs.

The puppy is about like a child.  I have to feed him several times, take him to vet appointments, play with him, keep him out of things, try to make him take a nap so I can work without him getting into stuff....I guess that's why they're called furbabies :p.  I couldn't imagine having kids right now.  All I'm trying to do to get caught up on life from the cancer wears me out without kids.  I think I'd have a nervous breakdown if I had them!

Catching up on eight days of VW = eye-rollingly time-consuming, but worth it.

I'm hungry, but I don't feel like cooking. And all the online restaurants that have vegan options are so not what I feel like. I'm totally not in a sushi or Indian food mood.

I want mac and cheese! WHINE!  :-\

Unfortch, my order of vegan cheese hasn't gotten here yet. So my plans for tomato zucchini cheese sauce over spaghetti squash is ruined.

Somebody call a WAHBULANCE!

Indian food isn't a "mood"...it's a way of LIFE.  Indian food = always the best option. ALWAYS.

Had melty cheese for dinner last night.  Went from in my fridge to in my belly in under 30 minutes.  Take that, Rachel Ray.

Four dirty dishes.  Would have three if I'd eaten out of the pan.

I didn't have any nooch either. Plus German nooch tastes a little funny, mine doesn't even have b-12 in it. Which is the main reason I usually eat it.

Hahaha. Yabbit and FuFu. I guess. I love Indian food, but the restaurant choice is limited. SO I can't get GREAT Indian food. And all the restaurants somehow have a vegetarian menu that has mostly cheesy stuff on it. That's Germany for you.

Now in China, the Indian takeout place nearby was BOSS. And authentic. Yum!

My dear child, one does not go out for Indian food, one makes one's own. For the price of one serving at a restaurant you can feed 4 people to bursting point.

I like this topic.

My current gripe is people who are "too lazy/busy/whatever to show a little common decency"

We're all busy, our time is precious, but if you can't or your admins can't spare a minute to address a valid issue, instead just shove down people's throats, "it's in the rules", and THEN still expect that you will have them volunteering for you?!

???

How about a NEW rule?  One that says you and your admin have to show your volunteers the respect the deserve for volunteering for your cause?
:P

(obviously, but just to be safe, not talking about here...)

I woke up to all this whining to read. I made a potato and pea Indian dish for breakfast. Why don't i cook Indian more often?! it was probably 1/4 of the price as a dish at a restaurant, and will feed us for a few days. sooooooo good.
