I abhor warmongers and those who kill others in my name. I am really pissed off that the corridors of power are so riddled with grabbery and underhandedness. I am seriously annoyed at the free-wheeling indifference people have to our exploding populations, accelerating ignorance per capita, and indifference to our impact on the environment on which we depend. I am deeply pissed off that a renewable-energy system of transportation has not been developed and widely implemented. And I am pissed about the unidirectional and entropic character of apparent time, and how compelling it is. Grrrrrr!!!

Thanks, Bruce!

i still feel so fed up about the trainsin sydney that despite the fact that I travelled to and from work free on monday c/o a very embarassed state rail minister, as some sort of compensation for waiting an hour and a half here and there for trains that never came, but were advertised as coming, because they never bothered to announce things like, oh, you have to go to central to get that train, or things like, all trains after 9.30 pm have been cancelled, you have to get a bus, or things like the train on platform 19 will not come, no matter how long you wait, and we dont even know why it will not come, except that we know it wont come, however we're not going to let you knoiw that it wont come because, well, then you'd stop waiting on the platform or something wouldnt you and maybe even get a cab or something that would actually get you home.

and it felt like an empty gesture because i know that they thought theyd lose the election and let everything run down so as they could blame the new govt in opposition, but oops they got elected for a fourth term and now the trains are truly stuffed and there's no money to do anything about it, and so the same thing will keep happening for months, possibly years, and in the meantimetheyre raking in the money from the casino and where's it all going? oh, theyve contracted it out, havent they, private enterprise and people dying in the waiting rooms of hospitals or on trains stations, waiting three weeks for trains that have been cancelled.

and when michael costa says theyre going to buy a whole lot of new trains that are half as big as the old ones, i think of myself crammed in like sardines in a cattle truck rattling along and waiting in 40 degree heat on a bad day with the air conditioning not adequete never is and tryng to read the newspaper of the person standing next to me who is holding it in a deliberately mutant way so that i cant see it and i cant read it, and its the sports page anyway but i'm so bored and fed up with being late for work that i dont care, and then someone "accidently" moves too close and i tread on thier foot as hard as i can and wish i had stilettos but who wants to cripple your feet for the sake of an occasional good weapon?

yes, monday i travelled free on the trains, as compensation for all of that.

I hate getting my car fixed...damn thing cost an arm and a leg and should run forever as far as I'm concerned!

I hate cleaning the catbox!

I hate when the dog barfs.

I hate seeing dead animals on the side of the road.

I hate sitting in a hospital and not being told what the hell is going on.

I hate mindless busy work.

I hate that there are people in this world who have children and have NO idea what a special gift they have been given.

I hate picking bush beans when it's hot and humid. For that matter, I hate chasing pigs out of my neighbor's field when it's hot and humid.

I hate watching my husband go off to work everyday when I know he'd be much more happy to stay home and live off the land.

Did I mention I strongly dislike my mother-in-law?

HMPH.

I need to vent more often! ;)

Today, whilst looking for dried fruit to put in my Christmas pudding (I'm allowed, they need at least 3 weeks to mature), I found.....

Strawberry flavoured apple pieces....

And then.... further along the shelf....

Raspberry flavoured cranberries.

If you want strawberry and raspberry flavours ~ EAT A F&%$ING STRAWBERRY OR A B"£*%"£G RASPBERRY!
















And calm.

I hate crowded stores. I feel all cringy around my spine even when, because I have to be there, I try to ignore the fact that it's crowded.

Today I went out for lunch with a friend and on the way home we stopped at the supermarket so I could pick up some milk. The store was CROWDED. In the checkout line there was a man in front of me and there was a man behind me. The checker was a man. Guess how long it took? The man in front of me and the checker were talking... The man behind me got restive.

(Not that I'm keeping track, Bobert)

I Hate my Job,
I Hate my Life,
And if it Weren't for my Two Kids,
I'd Hate my Ex-wife.

I also hate George Strait and his insipid, moronic country music lyrics.
And that I can never remember the fingerings for Augmented and Diminished chords and that after 38 years of playing the damn guitar I still have to look them up, and even then I buzz them most of the time, and that my waist keeps getting bigger while my IQ and retirement funds seem to get smaller and that while I try to love Jesus, by December I'll hate all the baggage (emotional, financial and otherwise) associated with this freaking merchandising event that I used to know as a joyful Holiday when I was a kid.

And I hate that I still miss my Dad even tho I'm damn near an old man myself

Thanks Bruce-it's better, for now

And Ebbie, always choose the line with a female checker and male customers. Choose any other combination and you'll still be waiting in line.

I HATE buying a frozen turkey (or any other fowl) and finding that the the body cavity is half full of ice which I've paid full price for. One day I'm going to save it all and take it back to the store and demand a refund.

The same with ham which on the label says 10% water added. I think we should have dollars that say 10% value deducted with which to pay for this crap.

And Squeaks, I completely agree with you. Over here in the good old USA they have ranch flavoured chips. Sheesh! have you ever SMELLED a ranch?

How DARE they put labels on fruit and vegetables, labels that stick so tight they peel the skin right off the bell pepper or whtever when I remove them, so when washing to get all the friggin pesticide off, I end up scrubbing soap right into the flesh.

I hate lane changers that cut in right on my bumper when there is no need, or the people who speed down the lane clearly posted as being closed ahead, then impatiently cut in at the last minute.

Big box stores. Arrogant, no-nothing clerks, who, when asked a question about an item, proceed to read me the box.

Bass turned up until my eardrums are thrumming...stuck in traffic next to one of these boombox cars is torture.

Yappy dogs (all except my own).

Ingredient labels in tiny print, printed in beige, on a slightly darker beige background.

Boab - I have a handy little credit card sized 'Swiss Army' pocket toolkit. It's got a multi screwdriver, a ruler, a pen, a toothpick, tweezers, a nail file and a very VERY sharp penknife, all in a credit card sized thing that acts as a keyring too..... great for slicing open those plastic wrapped suckers......

I hate when I go to a store and the sales people don't know what I'm talking about. I asked one for cellophane the other day... she didn't know what it WAS let alone WHERE!

And last night, I purchased a DVD for a friend for her birthday.... the two desk clerks couldn't get the security case off.. Neither could the manager. They finally managed it, slipped it into the bag, charged me for it and off I went. I got home to find that to open the security case, they've scratched the box and taken a chunk out of the label. It's not horribly mangled, but it is mutilated and I feel embarassed about giving it to my friend. The only good thing is, they've managed to break the seal on the plastic wrapping, so I should be able to get into it without breaking a finger or resorting to the Swiss Army credit card.

I hate giving things that I wouldn't like to receive.

And I hate getting presents still in carrier bags/shop wrapping.... a carefully wrapped and nicely presented parcel says 'I've taken the time to make it look lovely, so even though it's really a crappy present, I still thought hard about how it looks.'

I needed more Pearl Barley than I had (somewhat less than half-a-pound; look don't ask me, it's all Tig's fault!!). So I did the 10 minute walk to Sainsbury's. Up that aisle, down that one, up that o...

Really, the last aisle I got to (& I don't mean last as in "last place, cos then I stopped looking"; I mean "last place cos there was nowhere left to bloody well look") - beans ("Aha!", I thought), beans, beans, lentils, *gap*, lentils, beans, beans... {From the bottom shelf up...} Beans, beans, lentils, *gap*, lentils, beans, beans, beans....

*Gap*

Label...

"Pearl Barley"

{Find trainee muppett shelf-stacker} "Got any Pearl Barley out the back?"

"Eh? Wassat? Pull burly?"

"Pearl Barley"

"Pull what, mate?"

"Pearl, as in oyster, baaaar-ley..."

"Oh right, 'Ang on.."

Five minutes later he tells me "No." {Surprise, surprise...}

Walks home, walks to Safeway's (15 minutes, opposite direction). Finds right aisle first time (note: Safeway's aisle signs much better than Sainsbury's)...

Beans, beans, beans, lentils {You just know what's coming, don't you?}, *gap*, lentils, beans, beans... {From the bottom shelf up...} Beans, beans, lentils, *gap* (You're not surprised?}, lentils, beans, beans, beans....

*Gap*

Label... {I wonder why you're not surprised...)

"Pearl Barley"

{Don't bother finding trainee muppett shelf-stacker, walks home, 15 minutes; 1 wasted fruitless (& grainless) hour later... Grrrrrr...}

Next day, stops off at Tesco's & finds a shelf *full* of Pearl Barley! So...

{Rant}Stuff bloody Sainsbury's, & stuff bloody Safeway's; just don't bother tryin' to stuff 'em with pearl barley cos they're out of stock!!!"{/rant}

Hmmm. That's an interesting problem, freda. Is he very, very serene or is he just good at controlling his outer reactions to things?

I don't lose my cool easily either, but that doesn't mean I'm not bouncing around on the inside, often as not. I almost never get outwardly angry at people. Annoyed, perhaps, but not angry. They have to really work at it to elicit outright anger from me.

I'm also the farthest thing from an "angry drunk". The only effect alcohol has ever had on me was:

1. I get more relaxed than usual
2. I get more easily amused by things and laugh more
3. I get quite jolly
4. I get kind of sleepy
5. I then stop drinking...having suffered no real damage whatsoever from the rather minimal amount of alcohol I've consumed.

That's it.    :-)

Little Hawk - we have a little thing here where you can dial a code and get the number of the last person to ring you.. When we get rude people with wrong numbers, I just get the number, wait 30 mins and then phone them back.

I had one bloke late one night (well, early next morning really) insist that I was his cousin Dave and should come and pick him up. I asked him where he was and told him it would take about 6 months and 4 hours. 4 hours to drive to York, where he was, and the other 6 months to learn now to drive first!

I have a little 'rantette' that I launch into now... when I pick up the phone and there is a delay in them answering my 'hello', I know it's a telemarketer. The delay is the satelite linkup to Mumbay or wherever... I just say 'I have double glazing, I don't want a mortgage or a loan, we don't need a new kitchen, or to change our phone/utilities tarif. Did I miss anything?' They get very confused then and say sorry!

Okay, the guy at the register tells me $59.60 and in my head I'm thinking, that's too much, but I give him three twenties, in cash, and he hands me 40 cents and my receipt. I look at the receipt and see that he's charged me twice for one fifteen dollar item. I show him the receipt - I have not even moved my feet one inch, mind you - and point out the overcharge. Without saying a word, he starts punching numbers on his cash register, and then says to me, "I need to see your drivers license." I say, "What for?" He says "I can't refund your money unless I see an ID." I hand him my ID, he looks at it, and hands it back to me. All this is without looking at me, mind you. Then he hands me the money.

It wasn't the sullenness which bothered me - it was having to provide identification. Pure and utter rubbish. I paid in cash, and never left the store. What the hell was the ID for?

The I.D. was so that he could cover his own ass from the tyrannical idiots who employ him and demand such documentation, I suspect! Have pity on these poor sods who work retail counters. I have had such jobs, and it's amazing what one has to put up with sometimes from the buying public. The worst part is people's bloody-minded impatience. They're all in a perishing hurry...but they have no idea why or for what! When they finally get to wherever they're hurrying to, nothing has changed. :-)

Regarding jerks who swear at you at 3 AM when they have dialed your number in error...I had a friend whose phone number was one digit different from a local pizza delivery outfit. He would get several calls a week or even several a night on Fridays and Saturdays, various drunken yahoos ordering an after-midnight pizza, and they would swear at him upon finding out they had a wrong number! Well, after a few weeks of it he started fighting back. He would pretend to BE the pizza place, and take their order, advising them of all the possible toppings and combinations. He would then say, "Thank you sir! And if it's not there in 15 minutes or less, call us back and...you will get a supersized FREE PIZZA delivered with our apologies and a FREE movie pass for two at the local cinema of your choice!!!"

This no doubt led to some highly amusing and rankerous conversations between the aforesaid drunken yahoos and the real pizza place! Not one of them ever succeeded in dialing my friend's number twice in a row, but if they had I'm sure he would have worked up another trick to play on them. He was like that.

He once left a 3-minute recording of "Bird Is The Word" on my voice mail. Very annoying!

I hate it when a sales clerk or receptionist leaves me to answer the phone and then deals with the person on the phone while I am, standing around waiting. Most of them are decent and smart and will ask the person on the phone to wait while they deal with the customer in front of them, but every now and then...

"Hey, tell the one on the phone to wait! I actually got up off my arse to come down here!"

Yes, that is a real pain! Learning to ignore a ringing telephone is one of the key steps to personal freedom and liberation as far as I'm concerned, and I very much doubt that I will ever own a cellphone.

I also detest the concept of call waiting. It's very rude and essentially pointless most of the time.

Highly forwardable, Cluin! (Should that be a new 'Net acronym: HF?)

Here's a driving-(2 hours)-to-the-gig-having-started-an-hour-later-than-intended, and driving-home-from-the-gig-in-the-wee-hours rant:

If you're not passing anyone and going at or below the speed limit, get out of the frigging left lane!!! If you're not awake enough to maintain a consistent speed, get off the frigging road!!! Buy a car with cruise control!!! No, wait, you're driving a $30K frigging Toyota Sequoia, what's the matter? You think cruise control will let you fall asleep, so you're going to go down the highway varying your speed by 20 miles per hour, accelerating if I try to pass you, decelerating after you pass me?? Get off the frigging road and take a nap!!! (Oh, and thanks, you did actually help me keep awake by making me nervous about what the hell you were going to do next.)

Whew. Thanks for the opportunity. Should I have posted this to the F-word thread instead?

She got in a fight with me one day about MY driving, saying, "You obey traffic signs!" Well, yeah! I figure they were put there for a good reason. To save lives.

She was a total nutbar. I thank God she is somewhere else right now, and not here with me.

Forget about health and exercise. Turn me on. Tune in and drop out. Buy, buy, buy...all the crap that I tell you to buy. Let me lobotomize your kids into being good little consumers.

TV commercials that are three times as loud as the program you are watching.

By the way, is it my imagination, or have TV commercial breaks gotten a lot longer recently? I counted 22 commercials in one break a few nights ago. The program sort of came back on halfway through the break, but it was only a sort of splash screen for a few seconds to remind you what it was you were watching. And a few of those commercials were the same ones repeated in the same break.

I recently learned that my ex-wife has moved to Crawford, Texas. She says she gets a warm fuzzy every time Bush's helicopter flies over while taking him to and from his ranch.

It's not really anything to rant about, but it is a source of consternation to me that I once thought I had so much in common with the woman and, now, she has devolved into my exact ideological opposite.

But, for what it's worth, both of the children she and I created are very active in the anti-war movement. I'm sure it pisses her off to no end.

Not long after I last posted, I went out in the heat, and a few blocks from my destination, my brakes failed. Not only that, but my car bonnet was jammed and wouldn't open, my mobile battery was flat, and when I finally rang the NRMA from somebody else's phone, I found I was lapsed because they had sent the renewal notice to my old address (despite my telling them the new address when I renewed last year), so I had to pay up with my card on the phone before they would do anything.

They took an hour to come, told me the master cylinder had failed (serious and expensive) and that I would need it towed. Then I had to wait another hour and a half for a tow truck to come. When it finally did, I had to go with them, while they took it to the garage where I usually get my car fixed. It took more than another hour through the heat and peak-hour traffic to get there, $15.40 for extra kilometres, and then I had to get a cab home - another $20. The whole exercise took nearly 5 hours from start to finish, and I arrived home about quarter to 8.

There was my SO, cooking birthday dinner for his daughter, not expecting me (I was supposed to be going to a session tonight), looking grumpy, and before I even had a chance to finish telling him what happened, she arrived, and he disappeared into the kitchen, so I couldn't even rant properly when I got home.

They tell me they should be able to fix it in the morning, so I will have it back in the afternoon, but it's not a cheap fix. And of course there will be another $20 taxi fare to go and pick it up. Bugger bugger bugger!

Fuggin' banks!

The last remnant of my money at the Royal Bank was moved yesterday. I had closed out my accounts there several years ago and moved the money to the TD Bank because of some business practices the Royal had adopted locally. But I kept a Money Market fund going at the Royal which was set up as an RSP. So I finally decided to moved the RSP over to the TD too, as it was not paying much in the fund the Royal had it in.

The financial officer at the TD told me there would be a 25 dollar charge that the Royal would take off my investment for transferring it over to the TD investment group. But that the TD would reimburse me the 25 dollars. Great!

So I get a bill in the mail telling me the Royal Bank has jacked their transferral fee up to 50 bucks. Scooped it right off the top before they let the money go. They obviously found out about the 25 dollar reimbursment and decided to gouge their (former) customer a little more. Hey, who's stopping them. right? I'm amazed they didn't take more. The financial officer at the TD agreed it was an excessive charge, but what could we do? The maximum reimbursement the TD could provide was 25 dollars. All for hitting a couple of keys on a computer keyboard, a keyboard purchased with profits made from my and your money.

Fuggin' banks!

Window envelopes! I hate friggin' window envelopes!

Specifically, I hate companies that send you a window envelope in which to send your remittance. I hate them because you have to make sure that the little remittance cards that they also send you are correctly oriented in the envelopes or the address doesn't show.

I could understand it if they were trying to save a few bucks by using generic envelopes, but they're not. They've gone to the expense of having envelopes printed, so why not just have regular envelopes printed with their addresses on them? After all, it's not like my payment is going to one address and my neighbor's is going someplace else. They're all going to the same friggin' place!

I think it's all just a conspiracy to cause customers to incur late charges. There are four possible ways you can put the remittance card in the envelope, and only one of them is the correct way. If you put it the wrong way, you'll receive the thing back from the post office as undeliverable in about a week. By then, your payment will be past due.

I'm not going to be popular about this one, but it really got me going GRRRRRRR

There was an interview with some guy who had gone over to Norway to help cut down the traditional yearly Norwegian Pine the citizens of Norway give to the citizens of the UK as thanks for their help during WW2.

Ok, the sentiments are nice, granted, but this guy was holding up a piece of the tree which they had given him as a souvenir and saying that it showed the tree was ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY YEARS OLD!

He said this gleefully, and all I could think was, "What's so wonderful about being one of the people responsible for killing this beautiful tree so people can admire it for a month and then toss it???!!"

I just hate the idea that we can't leave these great giants alone. Aren't there enough "tree farms" out there to satisfy the Christmas Tree-Lust of the Ho ho ho'ers in this country??

Exams! Why is there so many of the bloody things! All they do is stress me out and half of them don't count towards anything!

Oh, and what is the point in having a 'Parents Evening' in the second year of college! I can understand having one a few months into your first year because college is so much different to school etc. but not in the second year! It makes me feel like i'm at school again. I can take responsibility for my own learning thankyou very much!

    Here in Scotland, early means you're out the door before dawn. I hate the lack of daylight as well.

I hated it until I got to university. What a snowing waste of time. If it hadn't been for a quartet of gals I sat in the midst of in Grade 9, I would have left. Then Grade 10, when the option was repeat the year or go to summer school, I had to go to summer school. And a boon it was. Lots of young ladies reaching that stage of physical development that so captures a young man's fancy. Then Grade 11 and dating on of the girls from the Grade 9 class I mentioned eariier. And the guitar and . . . .

Snow school at that age. I failed Grade 11 and that was it for me and snowing high school.

I've been in Blind River. It's like hell on ice. They ought to give out free bumper stickers to tourists, saying "I got blind drunk in Blind River!" There sure isn't much else to do there. Sudbury is nothing to rave about either, but it's improved a lot since the old days when it looked like the aftermath of the Battle of Verdun. I once spent a year living in a cabin about 15 miles south of North Bay. The forest was nice, but North Bay itself was a dead loss as far as I was concerned. It was downright depressing in fact.

I haven't read this whole thread, enough to recognize that I need it. So I hate that my only daughter's wedding was so orthodox that I wasn't allowed under the Chuppa because I'm not Jewish. I hate Religious intolerance and exclusivity. I hate that some people's religious self-righteousness has done a LOT of damage to my own family of origin, including my nephews & nieces (Barky excluded), and even my own kids.

I also really hate the outcome of the recent election -- except for the Colorado state legislature, which was good.

I hate that I no longer trust the central, essential pillars of US government, like our electoral system, which I think is riddled with holes and unfairnesses, and our Justice system, which seems to be listing very badly to starboard, imho. I no longer trust our democracy, and I hate that.

I hate being broke all the time.

I hate that what money I got from my late parents I've managed to dissipate, even though I got a decent education and a BA out of it. I just hate that it's gone and that there isn't going to be any more easy money.

I hate that so many people think that SUVs are an acceptable solution to the problem of needing transportation, and that as a society we have no constraints on that kind of waste and destruction -- or on any other waste or destruction, either.

I hate that the environmental protection laws are going up in smoke.

There's more but that's enough. If I keep going I won't be able to sleep.

"Little Hawk - we have a little thing here where you can dial a code and get the number of the last person to ring you.. When we get rude people with wrong numbers, I just get the number, wait 30 mins and then phone them back."

Tried that once here.

Phone book tells you "enter ***" to get the phone number of the last person calling."

Plugged in "***" and was informed that "the number has been recorded, we cannot give you the number without a court order. If you feel you are being harassed, please call your local police departement and request an investigation.

Called the police to ask about this, they informed me that they will only investigate if I have received at least 3 calls within 24 hours, or 20 call within one week, from the same number.

How the $%^!@ do I know if they're all from the same number if they won't tell me what the number is?


A minor annoyance:

I just attempted to look up some identification on a public institution, found their web site quite easily, and even a .pdf map giving me the street names in their vicinity; but a thorough search of their website failed to reveal

        WHAT %$^*! CITY they are in.

(OK, so there IS ONLY ONE city in the UK …. How was I supposed to know? But why do they call it the "Birmingham" if it's in Hull?)

I'd bet most of the people who have posted here are not habitual complainers—and that's good. So you'll understand, I hope, that when I complain about complainers, I'm not trying to discourage you from posting your complaints here.

People who go somewhere (shopping, for instance) and then complain that it's too crowded, the lines are too long, whatever. They're mad at everyone else for getting in their way. Hello! If you're there, and it's too crowded, then you're part of the problem. You might as well complain about yourself. Or do you think you have a right to be there and no one else does? When everybody else is putting up with the same conditions, trying to be cheerful, trying to make the best of a bad situation, it's really annoying to hear someone complain, as if they're the only one being inconvenienced. If you hate the crowdedness so much, stay home and help alleviate it!

Same goes for people who complain about traffic. Who do you think creates traffic? Just more people like you. If you're in it, you're helping to create it. If you complain about traffic, you're complaining about yourself. If you hate traffic, stay out of it. You'll be doing everyone a favor.

It really grates my 'cookies' when people post just to take the two hundredth spot.

144-pint steel beer barrels, without slots cut in the rim to make lifting handles !

Getting them down into the cellar is a doddle. 1 - The brewery's delivery men do it, and 2 - They lower them down sloping beams using ropes round the middle.

Getting them back up again, however is my job. How am I supposed to do it ? Grip the thing in a bear hug ? I'd need arms like an orang-utan's to do it. Hoist it onto my shoulders ? The cellar ceiling is too low, and the stairs too narrow to allow it. So, I have to somehow pinch the rim between finger and thumb and carry it up the cellar steps that way. Those over-sized barrels weigh over 40 pounds when abolutely empty, and there's usually five or six pints sloshing around in the bottom which the lines can't quite suck up (or are too cloudy to serve).



I've ranted before about pub customers who eagerly try and attract your attention, flapping ten-pound notes in front of your face as you try and serve someone else, and only when when you rush back to them do they look for the first time at the list of ales and spirits on offer and turn to their friends to ask what they all want.

I absolutely abhore when the power goes out at the most crucial moment of a sappy TV movie you know will never see the light of day again.

The phrase: "It's been an emotional roller-coaster" should be BANNED from all media interviews for at least ten years.

I seriously object to 'some folks' who think in terms of decades instaed of centuries when it come to that friggin' expression. Like we have a Coney Island of the Bloody Mind or somethin'. That really gets on my nerves. Present company excepted, of coures.

Work gloves. Why is it so hard to find extra-large men's work gloves? I'm not a small guy, but I ain't huge and my hands aren't huge either. They're probably slightly larger than average for a man. There must be zillions of guys with hands my size or larger out there. So where in the hell are they hiding all the zillions of extra-large work gloves we need?

Same for me with T-shirts.

I like loose clothing and I'm 44" around the chest. Not a big guy, but I like loose T-shirts. Where the hell ARE they. And in cotton. Not polyester crap--cotton. They're prob'ly with the work gloves, hiding out.
Dang.
