    Or even just transfering onto the bed to get dressed and then realizing that you left your jeans on the bench on the opposite side of the room. It's the minor inconveniences that piss me off the most.

    Or when you get transfered in the car, chair loaded and realize you left something in the house that you have to get. Unload chair go get item come back transfer tear down chair...... Oh and it's raining.

    Thanks for the vent.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

            WOW!!! I agree DD.

            Oh, one thing not mentioned .. I hate feeling cold all the time. Something else, having to see anger taken out of others, especially children.

                I hate that we can't go to the Rally because we just got $2000 + of medical bills in the last week that we rejected by insurance for 99 separate reasons (applied to deductible, over limit for this service, preauthorization not obtained, we just feel like screwing you, etc). It was already a rather foolish proposition finanically to go, but it was really important and such a great learning opportunity for Small Boy ... but down the drain.

                This sucks. Even though I'm AB.

                  I love your stellar hate list, Honcho. Seriously.

                    I hate my incessant, unrelenting need for the use of emoticons to accompany my words. If I cannot say what I want with the correct combination of letters, spaces and moderate punctuation, why do I think a small fake face will better describe what I'm thinking?

                    If that small cartoon face does say it better than the aforementioned combo of keystrokes or Dragon, why am I expending the energy to write these words?

                    I'd say, "Gah," but I hate my use of the word "Gah."

                          67 hours in 5 days .. I'm f'ing tired. I took 3hrs off (2 tonight, 1 last night) before my midnight shifts.

                          I notice now that someone's grandfather has passed away. That means two more shifts, possibly one for me on Tuesday, then back for regularly scheduled afternoons.

                          This is bullshit. They run dispatches all over the country without enough people. That's my rant for today. And my feet are swollen because I've been up so much. And I'm a bit dizzy from being over-tired.
                          Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.
