Whats your Beef ??

I bring this up only because it has been a busy week for me and then when I have time to sit and check my emails etc I final said what is wrong with people. Frustrating sooo... Heres my Beef:

People who foward emails to others without deleting the list of people previous, so you have to go down a mile of everyone one in the world that has had it foward to get to what they sent and then find out it was somthing stupid that you could of delete instantly.

what gets to you?

One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching

I agree Letscook. It is so easy to copy and paste..I hate to see everyone's e-mail address.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

That blows middie! I feel your pain. My boss owes me commissions dating back to the begining of June! I am about to the point of telling them,"I will come back in when you have my pay.
Life is short.So eat great food!

How many am I allowed to name?

At the moment, it is the lack of printer and copier etiquette where I work; I came in to do some reports today and hit "print", walked to the printer down the hall (because the one in my office has been out of commission for months and God forbid they should either fix it or just get it out of here, but I guess that's another beef...) and it didn't print because there was no paper in the printer! We have 2 admin assistants and they have been admonished by our director, assistant director and their own supervisor to make sure there is paper in the printer and copier before they leave each day.

Later, I went to copy something and someone had left pink paper in the copier! Now, if the copier had been checked for paper like it is supposed to be yesterday, the pink paper should've been removed. Plus, whoever used it should've taken it out after they were done, anyway. I once had something of an argument with someone who was printing multiple copies of address labels and didn't bother telling us to hold off printing until she was done. Yep, not only did my stuff get printed on to labels, but this woman was upset with me because of the cost of the wasted labels. Um, and that was my fault why???

Okay, vent finished, feeling better...

My beef is reading the US Government's website about "Fiancee's Visas" Now I find out I cannot have known him for more than 2 years. Poking pins in my eyes is easier than what I will have to go through.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Agree about the email forwarding, it is not that hard to delete all the 8 million addresses that it was forwarded to before. Plus when sending emails to multiple individuals, I hide the addresses.

My beef is with freakin cell phones... (and I work for one) just seems people seem to be less interested what is in the world than what is on that darned phone!!!! Incessently checking every 2 seconds to see if someone texted them or if they can find someone to call.... (as they drive or whatever) jeeze louise!

OH.... the folks that block the whole grocery aisle with their cart.
