    My turn!

    I work in the office of a manufacturing facility, and the chemical fumes are stinking up the whole building - I'm dizzy, and I've got a headache and my eyes are burning and the owner doesn't care because he lives in a different state. But I'll get even in my passive-aggressive way by studying web stuff on company time. Ha! Oh, wait, they want me to do that.

    ...I'm dizzy and my head hurts...

    If it's big you could beat your boss over the head with it.

    Gripe of the day: I'm getting a crash course in Polish - courtesy of the five Polish builders having a leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeengthy conversation outside.

    Who needs TV when you have a group of fine people outside your window. Did the brunette ever gripe about them?

    Yes, but her room is a lot more shielded from the work. I'm virtually living in a frickin building site. I have ladders, drills, and hammers outside of my window. The brunette hates one guy most who makes out of order comments when talking about the females in the building.

    only violence or flight come to mind?

    I did retaliate by playing this on full volume and auto queue and pointing the speakers at the window. After an hour and a half they left, hehe.

    So, I have a gripe: I just worked several hours on a .psd file and did forget to save all along. The program crashed on me somehow (it does that now and then), and there I was, all lost. Oh stupid me.

    I have a community website. Basically as a public service. I only get like 50-100 visitors a day. I state very clearly on my homepage what my site is about. Nothing negative anywhere on my site. All content is written by us and all photos are courtesy of my husband.

    Yesterday, I received yet another email from some friggin clown in the county govt with a nice title, who heard "something" from somebody else and is now accusing me of XYZ and wants to cause me trouble. I called him for clarification & verification --- No he didn't bother to visit my site, so No, he really has no idea what my site is about. Well, so & so said that you were doing XYZ. --- I have no idea why so & so is spreading lies about my site, but if either of you had bothered to look at my site, then we would not be having this conversation.

    Well, if you're not doing XYZ, then how are you making money? Not that it's any of your business, but if you'd bothered to visit my site before making accusations and threats, then you'd already have the answer to that question. Shame on you! Have a good weekend & God bless (I then hung up).

    It's bad enough that I barely make enough $$ to cover the expenses for the site, but when friggin clowns want to cause problems for me based on LIES, it makes the QueenB in me wanna run up and pull a Rambo. I made good & damn well sure ---before I went live with the site ---that we had the blessing of the Grand PooBah in the county (He is a fan!) so all these little peons with the long titles are gonna look like **** when they go to "Tell on us".

    If it weren't for the few emails that I get from appreciative parents in the community, I would be tempted to pull the plug on this site. But the feistyness in me would RETALIATE first before doing that.

    I guess my gripe is when folks who have 8-10 lines in their signature (because they like to feel important and make others think the same) want to flex their muscles "just because".... This particular clown addressed his email "To whom it may concern" --- meanwhile, I know everything about him. And His boss. And His boss' boss.

    I'm taking this weekend to cool off, but he pissed me off enough that I doubt if I'm gonna let this one die.
