Make It Stop!! (venting)

This stupid project I've been working on is delayed - again. Our client, a federal agency who will not be named, is dropping the ball again and wants to make more comments on our document. All the files are already at the printer's.

Arrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhh

Sorry... sounds like a giant pain in the butt! I'll keep my fingers crossed that it all ends soon.

Thanks, ladies. This project has been a giant pain in the heinie, butt, and any other body part you care to identify or imagine. The morons at the fed level aren't helping any, either. This whole thing was supposed to be printing merrily away by now, with delivery by the day after tomorrow.

Now we have at least another week of BS to deal with. It's your tax dollars at work, folks in the U.S.

Seester, I have tied the knot and am hanging on for dear life.

To quote Paul Simon, if this thing isn't over soon, "I fear I'll do some damage one fine day..."

Yes, it's not professional or mature at all, but I am so sick of this thing.........

MM, presidents may come and go, but bureaucrats are forever, unfortunately.
