Taxlady, thank you for the hugs. :)

That's why the title of this thread is "Venting".

writing their feelings down helps a lot of people, pag. in fact it's taught as a coping tool in cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapies.

i've never done it, though. it can also be considered evidence...

Why do people find the need to be so derisive in the comments section of news stories? And it doesn't matter what the story is about or where it takes place. People get ugly when they think they can run their mouths annonymously and without being held responsible.

Because they know that those are the ones that will be printed. Then they can brag about being in the paper. Even if it is anonymous. It makes them feel important.

I have an appointment with my vascular doctor and I am going to have to talk to her office folks who do the billing for her. I got the eye folks straightened out. The ER is another one. The problem is that BU doctors who practice through Boston Medical Center have their own billing department. And I have to make sure each department has the correct information since they are too lazy to look in the computer. GRRRR!
You might want to get the check from the tribe to make that go away...why not?

Had he looked at my record, he would have seen that I am in my 70's. I simply do not have any patience with stupidity.
Too funny!

Today HUD is here finally for the inspection that they cancelled early this month. I hope they skip my apartment. I am in no mood for them.

Why is it that every time I have somewhere to be after work we have a major outage and I end up having to stay late? And the more time sensitive it is the bigger the outage and the longer I have to stay. It's like our telecom and network equipment can read my mind and just really like messing with my schedule.

My laptop is a little long in the tooth. It's still a dual core machine, and in good condition so I'm trying to breathe some new life into it. Well lately technology hates me, I'm convinced of it.

I put in a new hard drive, everything was going well, then shortly later the fan quit. I took a panel off the bottom and have been using a laptop cooler to keep it from shutting down, not the most convenient solution, but it worked. Today the new fan came in the mail (a $7 fix, YIPPIE), got it in, it works, keeping the machine cool. An hour later, the NEW hard drive failed!!!

So here I am with the old hard drive in, it's cluttered and sluggish, but the machine is still working, could be worse I suppose!

Over the last month I've had to fix two other computers in the house, luckily since I can do it myself, the fixes have been cheap.
