This is a thread where one may vent any feelings of frustration, anger, sadness or so on in a totally safe way. In this thread no one may comment on your vent except to say things like 'i'm sorry to hear that', or 'hope things turn out better for you' unless you specifically say they can comment on it differently. Please remember also the difference between venting your feelings about someone and just completely trashing them so try to be relatively civil.

Ill go first.

Damn it, Internet! I'm in college. I have a lot of work to do. Why won't you let me do it in advance? I'm getting 5 or 6 hours of sleep most nights, and that's greatly dragging down my academic performance, not to mention happiness and sanity and time available for other activites. I'm not even doing anything I want to on you most of the time, just reading random pages. Let go of me.

I find I get randomly frustrated. I don't find school excessively challenging, but always end up getting annoyed to the point of angry for things like writing stuff like 4)6 5)32 5), or other little penciling mix ups. I just sit in my desk and scowl at my page a little. I don't know, I'm just confused, because I've never been an angry kid.

I am bipolar.

I am in the process of excepting that I am six times likelier to get divorced than the average person. Since 50% of all marriages/people end up divorced, I am basically screwed.

Also, women don't find me datable. Although, this does not actually upset me for some reason. What worries me is that it has never upset me. :smallconfused:

Also re: college
I am having difficulty paying attention, and I suspect it's mostly my own damn fault... I've got half of this hw done that's due a week from today, and that's the easy half. And I've got this entire hw due next Thursday, haven't started it, and it's hard as crap... I keep trying to get this stuff done and I don't get anywhere. Oh, and I have a midterm on Thursday. >.<

Come on! You're not seriously telling me tht I suddnely don't have access to this ESSENTIAL system that I had full access to less than 24 hours ago? It's a BUSY night. I need to do EXTRA work tonight, simply because it's the Tues/Wends shifft! None of my supervisors are picking up, nor are their phones working, and tech support is is unable to handle the problem with a grunt, so I have to wait until their manager is done talking to somebody else.
Gah!

3 years getting a degree so I can still be stuck under an unbearable boss in a minimum wage job, getting poor hours at that while new employees get more shifts. Why? "You took time off at the start, and they have acquired more training" Here's the kicker: I am the one who trained them!

I love my boyfriend, but I've made too much of my life about him. Now, I'm realizing that if he doesn't get his act together very soon, he's going to graduate and be making hardly any money PLUS being entirely miserable. I could deal with a poor boyfriend or an unhappy boyfriend, but both will just drag me down. But I love him so I don't want to leave. :smallannoyed:

First and foremost, with mine your allowed to comment however you desire. I'm a tough person, so I'm not easily offended. plus, usually hearing what people actually wanna say calms me down a lot.. Its a bit long, but certainly not end of world.

I got fired from a less than minimum wage job where people were supposed to tip you but didn't know. less than 10 hours a week. I'm paying for college by myself, and I barely have enough for next semester. I can't apply for financial aid, because I'm considered a dependent, and my parents won't provide anything, and they're pretty well off. So the money I would get wouldn't be much help anyways, if I could get any. I've turned in 40 applications to different places, and none have responded. The best I have is a part time job that I'm not even sure what I'd be doing, just a friends mom has an opening for the next few weeks.

On top of that, I've been having fights all week long with my lovely fiance, and a lot of my friends. I had an actual fight recently (no worries, I'm just a bit cut up and bruised, I'll be fine).

Worst of all, I'm in terrible pain. My back is constantly aching, I don't know what it is, and I don't have money to see a doctor. I've been waking up or getting up certain times of the day and I can't turn my neck without wanting to scream. (I have a lot of pain tolerance, making me scream is not easy.) And finally, I have been having migraines, most often behind my eye so i can't even open it it hurts that badly. All of this has been keeping me awake till 5am, and I get up at 8. This all has been going on for a month now.

I Finally land a good paying job, get on the high paying side of a two year apprentice program, and it turns out the owner is stealing so much money from the shop that if the union didn't vote on pay freezes we'd all be out of jobs, so no more raises, and it's prety likely i'll be on the streets by next year, because this guy wants more money and can't stop making the company he owns pay him rent because he owns the building. We could save 30 grand a month if he just stopped being greedy and accepted he owns the building and company. But that would mean the money stays in the company bank account not his own.

Re: Ettiquite. Not sure if this fits, but its been bugging me all day.

Sometimes you have to wonder what sort of society we live in when the simplest of things are somehow repeatedly overlooked by grown adults. Apparently there is an individual on the floor of the building where I work who is entirely unfamiliar with the disposal of those tissue-toilet seat covers.

Entering a stall and finding the products of another person's "rest" is always disconcerting, but in this particular individual's case it can not be summed up as forgetting. The toilet has been flushed (not an auto-flush stall) but for some inexplicable reason the disposable seat cover has been left on the toilet! Does this person fail to understand that these are not intended for re-use? Is there some doubt as to whether this item is flushable? If there is some aversion to flushing, why not toss it in the trash?

No, the best course of action this person can come up with is to leave the toilet seat cover there for someone else to deal with. Apparently its too much trouble to flush the thing...

Past three days I've seen this. Fortunately he appears to be regular, so I'm going to try and make my usual visit a bit earlier in order to catch him in that act. Or leave a note. I'm just embarassed that I have to share air with a person like that.

Also, traffic. I hate traffic.

*crackes knuckles*

Ok, this has been one of the worst days of a year already the worst in my life, so here goes.

#1. I work for a satellite company that is about the evilist place you can imagine. I work up to 6 day a week, 14-18 hours a day, every holiday, no vacation or sick days. Every manager is a sadistic bully who literally fires anyone that even looks at them wrong. They lie, cheat and generally treat us technicians like scum.

They have changed the pay so it isn't even by hour, but by performances, how long it takes to complete a job, customer satisfaction, etc. However, these can change drastically from home to home, person to person. I am infamous at this place for every house I go to being a nightmare for installation. Call it a curse, bad luck, or random happenstance but that's the case. I will likely shortly be fired, especially because...

#2. Today my car died. Just totally gave up the ghost. Found out the engine block cracked. Car is now not worth spit. I have just enough saved up to buy another car... except because of my hours and work days I can't. And my boss informed me that because I missed work today because my engine died in the middle of rush hour traffic I will be fired if I miss one more day. I've been looking for a single job that even pays the minimum I need for survival for 9 months now and can't find a one.

I've been trying to find a car to rent all day but the places are sold out all the way around. Try to call family, but the only ones nearby decided to be folks I'd like to clip from my family tree about it.

#3. I'm shortly going to have to be moving because the house I'm renting is foreclosing because my landlady's ex-husband is trying to be a <censored> and giving her legal hassles. Nowhere around is the rent or the locale half as good, and will likely eat up what little money I have left over.

And just to add insult to injury, landlady (who btw lives in the upper apartment area of this home) 's BF started beating her, and though now in jail, did all sorts of petty things to make her life miserable, and subsequently mine as well. Such as hiding packs of raw meat and intestines up inside air vent and through slits in her couch cushions. We couldn't find the source of the, for lack of a more powerful word, 'odor' for over a week. At this point I crawl up into a portion of the attic and manage to get chicken gizzards and maggots dumped all over me, the smell causing landlady to vacate for days until it was breathable inside.

#4. I've gained 40 lbs in the last 10 months from working at this company because I have no time to exercise or fix myself healthy meals, as well as getting pneumonia from working in the freezing rain that plagued me for almost 5 months straight, so I couldn't work out if I had wanted to. I was physically awesome when I started, best health of my life, a sturdy 185 lbs with the beginnings of the first sixpack I've been able to achieve.

#5. I haven't seen the girl I love for nearly 9 months and I live only 5 miles away. That's an incredibly long story that I'm not going to even try to touch on, but lets just say I'm powerfully miserable from that if not even from the above.

Same girl and her family were flooded and forced to evacuate their home last week and will be lucky to afford the damages without going bankrupt.

#6. Because of further incidents involving much of the above my faith has also been shaken in many ways both small and large.



Sooooo... yeah. Bring it on. I WANT MORE PAIN.

...There's really no way to follow that huh, TVT? I'm sorry, that really stinks. Though I've never gone through stuff that bad, I find that big things like this that mess up your life are all fixed in a certain way: you just need to fix one of the problems, then it makes all the other ones progresivly easier. For instance, once you get a new job, it will (hopefully) give you enough time to find a new car (/appartment), get around to the gym to get a sexy six-pack back. (:smalltongue:) Once you have a job that isn't hell, you'll have a more positive outlook on the problem.

What I'm trying to say, if I wasn't so bad at saying it, is that each individual problem is easier to fix all by itself. It's when they gang up on you, like right now, that they're each almost impossible to resolve. (Kind of a "More than the sum of it's parts sort of thing.")

Anyway, here I am trying to give advice to someone who probably already knows it/is more experienced than me, but I find the best way to go about it is to focus all your energy fixing one problem at a time. Just my two cents worth. :smallredface:

Oh, right, my problem...

A thread for bitching about anything and everything, huh? Sounds good.

For a start, I have depression. Kinda inevitable, given that my mother's family has a proud tradition of mental illness. I also have my father's temper, combined with a tendency to bottle up emotions that makes meltdowns almost a monthly event. I'm scared that I'll severely hurt someone I love, leading me to have troubles relating to anyone. I know that distancing myself from everyone is a moronic way of dealing with my neuroses, but there's a reason Int and Wis are separate stats.
When I'm under severe pressure, like in an exam, I enter complete lockdown. I can't think at all. I can barely keep it together long enough to get out of the goddamn exam and try and stop myself hyperventilating.
I have severe asthma, which means I can't do more than light exercise for extended periods. Extended periods being defined as longer than half a minute. I cannot remember a time when I didn't need to carry my inhaler with me constantly, and I hate being dependent on it.

Feel free to say what you like.

Hmm. My vent is technically against forum rules, so I'll keep it nice and vague.

I am a _____(Profession). I have devoted my life so far and intend to devote the rest of it to the pursuit of ______(Concept). So you can imagine that, when I'm casually discussing ______(Above concept) with a friend after a nice workout, the last thing I wanted to hear is a busybody (who had been an annoying acquaintance until this point) completely refuse the validity of ______(Concept). This would be have been a one-off incident, but it had been a long day, and I've never been known to have a very patient temper, especially when it comes to defending ______(Same concept). I tried to brush the arrogant prick off in my usual manner (make a joke and hope everyone laughs and walks away), but he keeps on rambling on with the same tired arguments, containing logical fallacies and factual misrepresentation. So he's standing there, in front of a row of lockers, calm and smug and talking about my passion in his monotone voice, as I try to keep myself from shaking too violently or lunging at the guy.

I am a pacifist, a gentle man. The most physical damage I've ever inflicted upon someone was by accident when I was nine, and I felt bad for days. So believe me when I say how... wrong it felt to have thoughts rushing through my head along the lines of "Punch through his skull" or "Break his ribs" or "If he can't keep his goddamn mouth shut I'll be forced to smash his teeth out on the lockers." I eventually got the will to walk past him, behind my astonished peers. He walks out the door, calm as ever, I shout some curses and kick a locker as hard as I can. It's disconcerting how I, the one who's whole argument depends on rational thought, was the one to crack.

I can barely walk properly now. And I was stuck doing work all night.

If you don't want me in your house, stop pretending you do! You don't have to build it up for so long only to burst out on something so stupid and insignificant! And you don't have to burst out on the people who stick up for me, either. Well, that's it! I'm no longer going there except for a few minutes under very specific circumstances. And I'll make sure you don't even know I'm there.

So believe me when I say how... wrong it felt to have thoughts rushing through my head along the lines of "Punch through his skull" or "Break his ribs" or "If he can't keep his goddamn mouth shut I'll be forced to smash his teeth out on the lockers." I eventually got the will to walk past him, behind my astonished peers. He walks out the door, calm as ever, I shout some curses and kick a locker as hard as I can.

I can barely walk properly now. And I was stuck doing work all night.

Although I am not (enter profession here) I have passions for what I believe in, and although I'm not the most devout shower of (enter concept) I do not appreciate people saying my beliefs are wrong. Live and let live, let people believe in what they want to. So to that extent, I'm not surprised you wanted to (enter large amounts of pain inflicted upon person). Glad you didn't, people will be people but you need to stay strong in how you are and in your belief in (concept). As long as you believe in it, it shouldn't matter what others say. I admire your strength of willpower my friend. Good luck and hope things work out.

Things n' stuff.

Ugh, I hate people like that. Though chances are I do not subscribe to the same Concept as you do, I hate people who refuse to discuss it civilly or consider that other points of view might be reasonable (even if not true)- or refuse to drop the subject when the other person wants to! Of course, I've had bad experiences with people who are convinced of Concept as well as those who dismiss Concept. Anyway, I'm sorry to hear about the suckiness of said incident and I hope nothing so frustrating happens again to you for a long, long time (preferrably ever :smallbiggrin:). If you want to rant more, my PM box is open. Best wishes! :smallsmile:

Sheriff of Moddingham: I've seen enough to decide that this thread is a bad idea. Consolidating all the forum's rage into one thread just seems like a poor idea in the first place. Add to that the need to discuss inappropriate topics using blank spaces, proxies, or whatever. There are specific threads for relationships, gender issues, depression, etc., and one can always start a thread to discuss their within the forum rules issue. But a thread like this brings out hostility and complaints (and real world issues not appropriate for the forum) that would otherwise not make it to the board.
