I abhor warmongers and those who kill others in my name. I am really pissed off that the corridors of power are so riddled with grabbery and underhandedness. I am seriously annoyed at the free-wheeling indifference people have to our exploding populations, accelerating ignorance per capita, and indifference to our impact on the environment on which we depend. I am deeply pissed off that a renewable-energy system of transportation has not been developed and widely implemented. And I am pissed about the unidirectional and entropic character of apparent time, and how compelling it is. Grrrrrr!!!

Thanks, Bruce!

i still feel so fed up about the trainsin sydney that despite the fact that I travelled to and from work free on monday c/o a very embarassed state rail minister, as some sort of compensation for waiting an hour and a half here and there for trains that never came, but were advertised as coming, because they never bothered to announce things like, oh, you have to go to central to get that train, or things like, all trains after 9.30 pm have been cancelled, you have to get a bus, or things like the train on platform 19 will not come, no matter how long you wait, and we dont even know why it will not come, except that we know it wont come, however we're not going to let you knoiw that it wont come because, well, then you'd stop waiting on the platform or something wouldnt you and maybe even get a cab or something that would actually get you home.

and it felt like an empty gesture because i know that they thought theyd lose the election and let everything run down so as they could blame the new govt in opposition, but oops they got elected for a fourth term and now the trains are truly stuffed and there's no money to do anything about it, and so the same thing will keep happening for months, possibly years, and in the meantimetheyre raking in the money from the casino and where's it all going? oh, theyve contracted it out, havent they, private enterprise and people dying in the waiting rooms of hospitals or on trains stations, waiting three weeks for trains that have been cancelled.

and when michael costa says theyre going to buy a whole lot of new trains that are half as big as the old ones, i think of myself crammed in like sardines in a cattle truck rattling along and waiting in 40 degree heat on a bad day with the air conditioning not adequete never is and tryng to read the newspaper of the person standing next to me who is holding it in a deliberately mutant way so that i cant see it and i cant read it, and its the sports page anyway but i'm so bored and fed up with being late for work that i dont care, and then someone "accidently" moves too close and i tread on thier foot as hard as i can and wish i had stilettos but who wants to cripple your feet for the sake of an occasional good weapon?

yes, monday i travelled free on the trains, as compensation for all of that.

I hate getting my car fixed...damn thing cost an arm and a leg and should run forever as far as I'm concerned!

I hate cleaning the catbox!

I hate when the dog barfs.

I hate seeing dead animals on the side of the road.

I hate sitting in a hospital and not being told what the hell is going on.

I hate mindless busy work.

I hate that there are people in this world who have children and have NO idea what a special gift they have been given.

I hate picking bush beans when it's hot and humid. For that matter, I hate chasing pigs out of my neighbor's field when it's hot and humid.

I hate watching my husband go off to work everyday when I know he'd be much more happy to stay home and live off the land.

Did I mention I strongly dislike my mother-in-law?

I hate crowded stores. I feel all cringy around my spine even when, because I have to be there, I try to ignore the fact that it's crowded.

Today I went out for lunch with a friend and on the way home we stopped at the supermarket so I could pick up some milk. The store was CROWDED. In the checkout line there was a man in front of me and there was a man behind me. The checker was a man. Guess how long it took? The man in front of me and the checker were talking... The man behind me got restive.

And Ebbie, always choose the line with a female checker and male customers. Choose any other combination and you'll still be waiting in line.

I HATE buying a frozen turkey (or any other fowl) and finding that the the body cavity is half full of ice which I've paid full price for. One day I'm going to save it all and take it back to the store and demand a refund.

The same with ham which on the label says 10% water added. I think we should have dollars that say 10% value deducted with which to pay for this crap.

And Squeaks, I completely agree with you. Over here in the good old USA they have ranch flavoured chips. Sheesh! have you ever SMELLED a ranch?

How DARE they put labels on fruit and vegetables, labels that stick so tight they peel the skin right off the bell pepper or whtever when I remove them, so when washing to get all the friggin pesticide off, I end up scrubbing soap right into the flesh.

I hate lane changers that cut in right on my bumper when there is no need, or the people who speed down the lane clearly posted as being closed ahead, then impatiently cut in at the last minute.

Big box stores. Arrogant, no-nothing clerks, who, when asked a question about an item, proceed to read me the box.

Bass turned up until my eardrums are thrumming...stuck in traffic next to one of these boombox cars is torture.

Yappy dogs (all except my own).

Ingredient labels in tiny print, printed in beige, on a slightly darker beige background.

I'm beginning to run down. This has really cleared the air for me. Now I can start my Thankful list tomorrow with a free heart.

People who don't signal at roundabouts
People who park inconsiderately (pavements, yellow lines, double parking)causing danger to pedestrians and other road users
Pub owners who replace pictorial signs with dull nameboards or corporate chain names
People who come last to gigs and go down the front to stand thus blocking the view of others
People who, having got their drink, block the way to the bar for others
People who hold shouted conversations over the band at gigs, (usually ladies, I'm afraid)
People who use mobile phones while the band is playing (usually men)

Boab - I have a handy little credit card sized 'Swiss Army' pocket toolkit. It's got a multi screwdriver, a ruler, a pen, a toothpick, tweezers, a nail file and a very VERY sharp penknife, all in a credit card sized thing that acts as a keyring too..... great for slicing open those plastic wrapped suckers......

I hate when I go to a store and the sales people don't know what I'm talking about. I asked one for cellophane the other day... she didn't know what it WAS let alone WHERE!

And last night, I purchased a DVD for a friend for her birthday.... the two desk clerks couldn't get the security case off.. Neither could the manager. They finally managed it, slipped it into the bag, charged me for it and off I went. I got home to find that to open the security case, they've scratched the box and taken a chunk out of the label. It's not horribly mangled, but it is mutilated and I feel embarassed about giving it to my friend. The only good thing is, they've managed to break the seal on the plastic wrapping, so I should be able to get into it without breaking a finger or resorting to the Swiss Army credit card.

I hate giving things that I wouldn't like to receive.

And I hate getting presents still in carrier bags/shop wrapping.... a carefully wrapped and nicely presented parcel says 'I've taken the time to make it look lovely, so even though it's really a crappy present, I still thought hard about how it looks.'

I needed more Pearl Barley than I had (somewhat less than half-a-pound; look don't ask me, it's all Tig's fault!!). So I did the 10 minute walk to Sainsbury's. Up that aisle, down that one, up that o...

Really, the last aisle I got to (& I don't mean last as in "last place, cos then I stopped looking"; I mean "last place cos there was nowhere left to bloody well look") - beans ("Aha!", I thought), beans, beans, lentils, *gap*, lentils, beans, beans... {From the bottom shelf up...} Beans, beans, lentils, *gap*, lentils, beans, beans, beans....

*Gap*

Label...

"Pearl Barley"

{Find trainee muppett shelf-stacker} "Got any Pearl Barley out the back?"

"Eh? Wassat? Pull burly?"

"Pearl Barley"

"Pull what, mate?"

"Pearl, as in oyster, baaaar-ley..."

"Oh right, 'Ang on.."

Five minutes later he tells me "No." {Surprise, surprise...}

Walks home, walks to Safeway's (15 minutes, opposite direction). Finds right aisle first time (note: Safeway's aisle signs much better than Sainsbury's)...

Beans, beans, beans, lentils {You just know what's coming, don't you?}, *gap*, lentils, beans, beans... {From the bottom shelf up...} Beans, beans, lentils, *gap* (You're not surprised?}, lentils, beans, beans, beans....

*Gap*

Label... {I wonder why you're not surprised...)

"Pearl Barley"

{Don't bother finding trainee muppett shelf-stacker, walks home, 15 minutes; 1 wasted fruitless (& grainless) hour later... Grrrrrr...}

Next day, stops off at Tesco's & finds a shelf *full* of Pearl Barley! So...

{Rant}Stuff bloody Sainsbury's, & stuff bloody Safeway's; just don't bother tryin' to stuff 'em with pearl barley cos they're out of stock!!!"{/rant}

And it's all Tig's fault (although my neck definitely does feel a bit better now...)

I found the weather today to be not entirely to my taste. It was a bit less than perfect. I am thinking of writing a mild letter of protest to someone about it if I can get worked up enough about it to bother.

I'd hate people who were apathetic, but I just can't be bothered....

I really dislike people who slag off other people for slagging people off......

I'm not very fond of people who steal and eat my special chocolate that I'd been saving for months for someone else either.....

I can't get enough of Pearl Bailey. Louie Bellson got her for keeps.

Great and much needed thread!

I'll have to come back when I get a full head of steam up.
