Thanks guys. The virtual soup and tissue is much appreciated. I'm still working hard on NOT being sick. LOL. Stupid summer colds!

And PA, we've done so much better over the summer months I was thinking maybe we'd turned a corner here. Phooey. I'm so paranoid after last fall (and winter and spring) I swear I'm about ready to wear one of those mask thingys.

Here we go yet again - My mom is finally doing well recovering from the lung surgery- she just went for the follow up check up and they found another tumor in her kidney - not sure if it is yet another cancerous one or not - They want to remove the entire kidney as the tumor is so large - they do not want to biopsy as the Docs feel it will only further spread the cancer - God I need to quit smoking - They also found pre cancerous cells in her colon - Going crazy - BUT refuse to give up!!!!!

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

May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

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.

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.
