    A gripe is a fine thing, gets rid of the anger. Anyhow, I have this customer, they have been with me for 10 years now. They went to one of my reps displaying my silks and took photos with flash of one of the designs hanging up and having light shine through, to have those as a record of what they ordered. They did not show me the photo when they ordered.

    When I filled the order, they were darker than their faulty photo and send back the shipment. So I will make them a batch in the lighter colors, which will be a new design which I can put into my line, but it is something I had not planned on doing and I am miffed. They are good customers, so I grudgingly do this for them.

    Explaining this was very difficult, I had to try to simulate their photo on my own, and I did, but that did not help me other than to make them understand that I did not botch the job.

    So, here I am, wasting the time that I could have used for other things

    Sounds like a classic nightmare situation.

    I hate that I keep getting the same annoying teller at my bank who is wasting my time with her incompetence.

    I hate those "pay-in" machines that have taken the place of people. Whatever happens, and whatever I do to try and aviod it, those machines screw me over everytime. Yesterday when I went to the bank I went straight to the teller

    I can not stand it when I go to a department store and every clerk in it greets you and asks how you are and can you find every thing and how can I help you and have you washed your ears today and how is your mother and … and … and …

    well that's the overly friendly US service culture. When you're in ol' Europe you can be glad if the teller doesn't give you evil eyes if you start to ask complicated questions.

    Two extremes. It was hard to adjust to that for me.

    Bank phone trees. Especially the ones that really *don't* want to let you speak to a human.

    I completely HATE websites that (for some unknown to me reason) require multiple clicks backward when navigating back through pages visited.
    I'm pointing the finger at you webshots !

    Got a gripe today. Our trees are blooming, so the pollen is floating around and I have to sneeze all day and have all the nasty allergy stuff as well. No fun at all

    Hey, that reminds me of another gripe. When people move to a different climate, why do they try to plant plants that are alien to this new climate? Why do they not accept the place as what it is? Why do they bring their false ideas about a place and try to turn it into what it is not?

    Because they are stupid and have the power. You know what happens when stupid has the power. And the worst thing is that they don't admit being stupid and continue doing their stupid things. That's just... stupid! One word that describes a human being -- stupid.

    My tolerance to stupidity is getting less every day.

    Well, when you get to where I am at, you just start working with the young people. The old ones are so set in their stupidity, it is hopeless That is also what turns people into hermits, you just do not want to deal with them. And - just because a person is old, does not make them less stupid. A stupid young person most likely grows into a stupid old person. Man, there is a lot of stupidity to gripe about

    Yes, I know that stupidity and age are two different things. I've seen many stupid young people, and many stupid old people, and many smart young people, and many smart old people. Stupidity is a lifestyle, and as much as I respect choices of any individual, I'll never understand those who chose it.

    My Internet connection is a disaster (routed inside the house and port 80 keeps crashing grrr) so I have to ring up the property management all the time. Today I was told that I am the only one who always calls them about this. Half an hour later a neighbour knocks on my door asking me if there is a central WLAN hub in the building. Wondering why he might want to know I asked him what his internet connection is like. He told me: "I have problems almost every other day!!"

    So the silly cow in property management tells me I am the only one who rings up about this?! Either I am and the other 30+ people don't care when their internet connection is down every other day or she's a lying cow as well.

    Haha yeah. Honestly, I keep saying that if any of the hosts on my site had close to the downtime I'm experiencing here they would all go out of business.
