    I am sick of whining.  And drama.  And stupidity.  And, I'm hungry.  So, I don't care who you are, I ain't listenin' no more.  Leave your drama for the theater, dammit, don't bring it into my house!  And, husband, hurry up with that dinner before my stomach eats my spine!

              Well, I have a vent for ya...when my daughter was 5 (she's 25 now) we were in line at a pharmacy in Illinois andIi looked down at her and said, "remind me to get a Win For Life ticket at the register".  The guy in front of me said "oh, good idea".  He got MY ticket and WON!!!!!  Lesson I learned that day...don't talk out loud!  Biggest thing I did wrong that day, however, was to share that with my husband.  He must have been an elephant in his past life because he still brings that up to this day!  smile

    Someone stole 2 left shoes from my store today, they were very similar and displayed right next to each other. One was a size 6 and one was a size 8, but both were the left shoe.

    I keep the right partners put away to discourage theft. Now I have two right shoes I can do nothing with...

    I had to rearrange them all to be as far away as possible from another which looks anything like it. I hope they weren't planning on wearing those tonight, lol...

      I feel your pain--we suffer here from "Robo-Gophers!"  Because of several neighbors who allow their cats to run free, we won't use poisons...because if a cat were to catch and eat a poisoned gopher, the cat would be poisoned as well...we wouldn't want that to happen; we love cats.

      However, I can tell you, we've drowned an almond tree and a large shrub trying to flood out gophers...the plants died; the gophers are still with us!

      We've tried mothballs, cat 'stuff' from the litter boxes, firecrackers--even a cherry bomb one time....
      Nothing works--especially here, where we're in a semi-rural area on 3/4 of an acre with similar sized properties around us, and an humongous empty field behind us......Out in the 'back 40,' we don't care so much, but when they get into the front lawn, it's WAR.

      Those gopher smoke bombs don't work--they don't burn long enough.  We've tried 20-minute road flares instead...that didn't work, either.  These gophers have too many exits, and you can't find and block them all. 
      Besides, we live in a sandy area, so most of the smoke...(or carbon monoxide, if you wanted to hook a hose to your car exhaust) would just come back up through the surface pretty much everywhere....

      (We don't like traps--we're too squeamish for that...but anyway, neighbors have said those don't work, either...the gophers have learned to avoid them...)

      Sorry I don't have an actual solution for you...but your post gave me an excuse for my own rant on the topic....

        A gardener from way back (over 70 years) told me to unwrap juicy fruit gum and put it down the hole.  They are attracted to the scent and taste and will eat it whereupon it plugs up their digestive system and kills them.

        Don't know if it's true, but would be an easy thing to try if you don't mind killing them.

            Ack!  Well, I've learned that PETA isn't all they promote themselves to be; in fact, they run high-kill  "shelters" themselves, and adopt out on a small percentage of the animals they take in.  So I no longer care what they might think!  Google "PETA kills animals" if you don't believe me--I can't put the link here--it would probably get snipped....

    I'm fairly new here and every time I think I've sussed things out, they change. Is that typical of hubpages? Publishing a hub was virtually instantaneous but now you can't tell when it will appear. My last one took about two and a half days to be fully accepted, still haven't found it on the "latest" hubs. It's all a learning curve and I appreciate the experience, but it's also frustrating.  I've only recently signed up for facebook and things are a bit daunting. Everyone else seems to have multiple accounts, twiiter, blogs,fingers in every pie, and I'm flapping about like a fish out of water. Blahhhh.  Don't worry, I'l get a grip in a minute.And breathe.

    The glorious New York subway system...........ssssssssss!   When the train stops between stations and you sit there endlessly and in a half hour's time, the conductor tells you that the train is experiencing difficulties.......please sit still and be patient.     Sit still........of course, #$%^$&!, we are in between stations, there is nothing else we could do, Einstein!

    Recently, I went to McDonald's for a cheap meal that would fill me up. I ordered a combo with a water. Simple enough, right? After waiting in the drive through for exactly 26 minutes while the pack of over sized cretins in the car in front of me waited for their gigantic feast to be prepared, I finally put my jeep in drive and approached the drive through. "What did you order?" the drive through attendant asked. I repeated my order, and she looked at me with an absolutely dumbfounded expression of confusion such as I have never seen on a human face. I waited for her to explain the issue, and she said matter-of-factly: "the machine ain't gonna let you do that" in a tone that suggested I certainly should have known this. We finally settled on a variation of what I originally wanted, and I waited another 10 minutes while the entire restaurant threw their combined efforts in preparing the combo. When I got home and opened the bag, I saw that my patience had been rewarded with a bun with lettuce and mayonnaise (nothing else on it) and cold, unsalted fries. Seriously, how hard is it?

    I am so, so tired of shaving. But the itching is worse and it makes me look a decade older when I don't. Yet another bane of life...

    Note to my most loyal reader of my fanfiction:
    Yes, I am delighted to have readers, and I never take that for granted.
    However, I am less than sanguine about reviews that consist entirely of,

    "OH WOW, SPOILER SPOILER [CHAPTER SUMMARY] and SPOILER is SUCH A SURPRISE!"

    A REVIEW IS A REVIEW
    A COMMENT IS A COMMENT

    On the site where I post, the reviews appear in the story blurb/summary which prospective readers skim to see if they'd like to read the story. They do NOT need the Cliff Notes version to decide!

    Sadly, Ms. SPOILER is my most loyal reviewer, checking in after every new chapter. She stopped for a while after I sent a tactful request, but she's started again.

    SO FRUSTRATING to post a chapter I've labored on for a month, to get the happy "you've got a review!" notification, and to RUSH to see the first review posted...only to find that it's a chapter summary written in such execrable English that everyone will think, "Gack, if someone who writes that badly thinks this is a good story, I won't." sad

    Most of the time, I believe that  people are intrinsically good and that if you treat people right, you will have positive experiences.  And then, out of the blue, someone starts extracting the urine.  What is it with me?  Do I have 'mug' printed on my forehead?  Why do these people make a bee line for me.  More importantly, why do I get suckered in.  Why do I provide hospitality for people who never, ever reciprocate?  I am sick of being used!  If I could split myself in two, I would kick myself up the ass for being so stupid.  There. I feel better now and I won't let free loading rat-bags bring me down. smile

      It's not because you're stupid, it's because you are more evolved than some people. There's that old saying "whatever you do comes back to you" and eventually, you will meet people who reciprocate, and all those people who haven't will eventually meet mirror images of themselves. smile

    Freaking fed up with the Blogger text editor.

    Damn thing won't do what it's told as to spacing, font, or size. And that's just for starters. And don't even get me started when it comes to what it does with HTML...

    Have to do everything multiple times before what I want it to do finally sticks.

    I just spent 45 minutes doing what should have been a 5 minute job.

    I've been putting up with this crap for months, if not years. Enough is enough.

    When, when, when is it going to stop raining? In the last 3 months, there have been 4 fine days.  All the rest it has been hammering down relentlessly.  The soil is like a soaked sponge, and they are venting the dam everyday to prevent it overflowing.  Meantime, the animals still need tending and the veg beds are going to hell in a handcart.  Today, whilst I was walking the dogs, (has to be done 3 times a day no matter how bad the weather gets,) it rained so hard that water ran down my waterproofs and filled up my wellington boots.  As for the waterproofs, their name be-lies their function as I still end up soaked to the skin.  The sky was literally glowing red this morning at dawn.  Cooped up in the house day and night.  OK I'm getting loads of writing done but am starting to get cabin fever.  Bloody global warming.  As I watched the river overflowing again this afternoon and my old man started yammering on about the film The day after tomorrow, his favourite topic at the moment, I just wanted to scream.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!

    On a Polly Anna note though, at least our house hasn't been submerged like so many over in the UK so I suppose it could be a lot worse.  Yeah?  Tell that to the goats, who haven't been outside in weeks in case they get frothy bloat.  Just stop the rain, stop it now.

    I hate living in the country! I recently moved to a small town in northern Michigan, and there is nothing to do! The nearest town for shopping is 23 miles away, and there are no companies here who offer high speed internet! I'm pretty much bored out of my mind! Winter is not making it much better, because the roads up here suck! I miss living in the city.

      I trained the woman who took my job, and I knew she was going to do it while I was training her cause she's incredibly manipulative and totally self serving. I'm trying to forgive... I've had worse things happen.

        I hear you about the woman you trained. The real culprit hired her, and he already had her slated for your job.

        It has nothing to do with your work performance, either.
