I hate the heat. I hate being stuck in my appartment with an airconditioner that hasn't worked correctly since last summer because I'm on-call. I hate having to talk to stupid people who call for help and then won't follow directions because they think they know better than I do. Well if you already know how to fix it then why do I have to be on the phone with you? I hate dealing with people who think having to dial a phone number manualy on their phones instead of right clicking on the number and clicking dial number is a problem worthy of calling the emergency oncall helpdesk. I hate it even more when they scream and cry and yell and accuse me of trying to sabbotage their productivity raiting when I tell them to put a ticket in and we'll take care of it Monday.

Sooo grouchy today. All of this has been building all morning and I ended up snapping at the hubby over something stupid. And that's what I hate the most.

I got almost a full pound of a wedding invitation from my niece yesterday. What are these people thinking? The bad thing is, her dad is broke, and we have been lending him money for what we thought were essential expenses, not $20 pp wedding invitations. I will not be happy if this is where the money is going. The possibility is that the niece is in her late 20's, her DH to be has a good job, and hopefully they are paying for their own wedding.

Sounds like you need a lot of . Hugs to you PAG. I know how frustrating it can be when someone asks for a solution and then don't like the answer they receive. My next question to those folks is, "Then why did you ask me?" That usually brings the conversation to an end.

Thanks guys. Hubby gave me a hug, I drank a bunch of water and took something for the headache I had, I took a few deep breaths and got a couple calls from some very nice people who really needed help and were very appreciative that I was able to help them. I felt much better after that. And I made plans to go to the pool with my sister and her girls after my oncall ends.

I'm very grateful for a place to rant. That on it's own helped me mellow out enough that I wasn't snapping at hubby anymore. He was very understanding and forgiving, and he quickly accepted my appologies.

I'm actually in a pretty good mood now. :)

I'm ready to kill too! Someone is downstairs in the parking lot having his/her car worked on and blasting boom, boom "music" for the last couple of hours.

It makes my windows vibrate and I can even feel it in my body! I don't need the stress!

My ex and I had the problem at 07h00 on Sunday morning. He hollered and asked for quiet. When that didn't work, he filled several of plastic bags with water and launched "water balloons".
