Gripes to my sister having a really odd crisis now and being completely powerless to do anything since she won't help herself.

Gripes to people who are nice to your face and positively evil behind your back. A hearty "Fuck You!" to you all. (Not directed at anyone in this userbase.)

Gripes. I've really been hurting lately so I went to see the doctor... now he wants an MRI. On one hand I'll be glad to know why I am having pain. On the other hand i know I don't do real well in enclosed spaces... so I'm really having a lot of anxiety about that.

Gripes to my mom giving out my unlisted phone number to someone, she's not sure who. *WTF* was she thinking?
Gripes to (possibly but not likely unrelated) *7* hang-ups on my answering machine... all looked like they were from UNAVAILABLE.

Gripes to getting my throat jumped down for trying to do a nice thing for someone. I guess I should look before I leap next time.

Gripes to my supervisor leaving. She's a wonderful person and I wish her all the best at her new [better] job, but now I've got alot more to do, and with one less person back there to do it with.

Gripes. I am trying to place an ad to sell my car. I can barely fit "new tires clean well-maintained" into three lines because their formatting is so fucked up and I have no clue how to fit in things I need to fit in to get rid of the damned thing. Fuck it, I'll just waste time sitting on the phone to place the ad. :/ At least then they will be able to TELL me if something will fit or not, therefore telling me whether this is going to cost me an arm and a leg. If I hadn't put so much money into it fixing it up of late, I'd probably just donate it but I'd like to get back some of what I put into it. *grumble*

How about, well maintained = "good maint"

Gripes to spending a few hours in the ER last night, for something that I am afraid might cause a problem when it comes time to do my surgery on Friday.
I am awaiting phone calls from the doctor who's doing the surgery since he's probably going to be the one who has to make the call... and I'm thinking about calling the anesthesiologists to make sure there will not be interactions too. Ugh.

Being threatened by the Sheriff because I wouldn't give ID. No, I wasn't driving or doing anything illegal or even looking suspicious.

(Why do I get the feeling this probably has something to do with the guy wanted to be an asshole so he twisted something like the Patriot Act to fit his own means? Certain parts of that just make my skin crawl, since they basically give law enforcement the ability to abuse their authority in some cases... I'm not saying it's all bad but some parts of it just bug me because they infringe on people's civil rights.)

I was the only person present at the death of a 92 year old gentleman. He had terminal cancer and was in very bad health. It was one of those attitudinal things, had they politely requested or explained their need I would have given them some information. But when assaulted by cop-mentality they can go fuck themselves individually or collectively.

_I_ called the police, stuck around to give the coroner any info they needed, and generally helped the authorities. Then some asshole Sheriff began giving me attitude as if this was a murder investigation. Shit, my friends family was defending me to the asshole Sheriff!

Otis had been in declining health for 6 years, his wife of 65 years died last spring and he was down to about 125 lbs. We all knew death was imminent and were scheduling our visits so he was seldom alone but could die in his own home rather than in a hospital.

They told me that I may be charged with "Impeding a Police Investigation" or some other nonsense.

Gripes... Jason's been unemployed for two weeks, the one temp assignment he got lasted a day because the higher ups at the company (not even the direct supervisor) didn't like the way he looked. And his part time job just cut his hours. I don't know how we are going to pay bills.

Gripes to the client-from-hell-that-can-do-no-wrong-and-nothing-is-ever-his-fault.

Sucker shipped me parts 2 weeks late then wanted the first prototype board shipped back to him 1.5 hours later without test. Next day (yesterday) he calls up irate because it doesn't work. After telling him, "You've made it quite clear that you are the boss, crystal clear, so I do not argue with your decisions. I give you my recommendations and you elected not to take them. I shipped at your explicit instruction, how am I now at fault?" the jerk went ballistic even wanting my fedex number to charge me for returning the pcb that he forced early shipment of. Gonna be 5 days late now because he cut corners but somehow that's mutated into my fault.

Grumble, grumble...
