After 8 years Santiago's thread is still being used but has gone past 100 pages. In the interest of not bogging download times, I am replacing it with this one. Here is the link to the original if anyone wants to look at it. [NSR] What's Pissing you off Today?

At the moment I am not pissed off yet today. But it is early. So someone else start.

I am pissed off at myself for waiting too long to book a flight to Zurich, then return from Barcelona next month.

They were expensive two weeks ago at $1300. each. Now the best flights for us, Delta through Atlanta are up to $1,700+ each.

To get them at a lower cost, we will have to spend over 24 hours each way with two or three layovers.

Anybody have any ideas?

It's been my honor to have started the original thread and to find that it has grown to a hundred pages.
I'm pissed off that this summer the doctor is going to shove a camera up my butt again.

I am not pissed off about anything. Life is good. Deer and bunnies frolicking in the sunshine.

Pissed off at drivers. On my 2 mile walk i saw one personn 20 mph over the speed limit passing in a no passing zone through an intersection. Another doing aleft turn through a red light, only glanced to see if there was any traffic. School starts in a week here end it will only get worse! Neighbors came home at noon friday to find punks robbing their house. Sheriff caught them an hour later. 6 stolen cars for these jerks, finally in jail until the do gooders get them out. Drugs and and gangs, all with guns.

It pisses me off that this thread is so much longer than the “what’s cheering you up” Thread.

Wait, now it’s shorter so maybe I’m supposed to be glad? I’m so confused.

As long as they're not frolicking in the road....with alacrity.

That would piss me off.

I had to remind 2 airbag jockey's about turn signals on my way home from work today. I usually flip my signals back and forth and then scratch my helmet. About average

Wow. I was staggered to be able to get a return SFO - LHR -SFO on United for only $771 just two weeks ago leaving tomorrow. Perhaps London UK is a no-go area these days.

So there.
[refraining from making a face and saying "not pissed off at anything? Deer and bunnies frolicking? WHAT THE ---- IS WRONG WITH YOU?"]

Ahem...sorry. Glad stuff is all peachy there. Really.

And, stuff is rather peachy here too. Even had a fun ride to and from the place that cuts my hair. Until some impatient numbness in an Expedition nearly clocked me while making an illegal shortcut to get to the Exxon station at a traffic circle not far from home. Something was definitely wrong with him.

People ignoring me completely and pressure washing things that shouldn’t be pressure washed...not to mention doing so while my GTS is down-range and getting sprayed.

Try using a straw, you get less air and that may help.

I really don't wanna leave her as she's gonna have to cope with all the aftermath on her own ..... don't know what me son will be like he hides at his girlfriend's flat most nights

Gonna phone me Macmillan nurse tomorrow for a chat n hopefully get her some kind of help

Bitza (Jim).... being a caregiver is a tough road. Caregivers need a lot of support, and sometimes to get away from it all for an hour or so. Unfortunately so many people see caregivers as someone who is contagious, like they're gonna somehow spread cancer or something else through casual contact. Or they think "it's so sad".... what a crock of shit.... of course it's sad, but it's also part of life, and life ain't all rainbows and unicorns, or unicorns farting rainbows.

Also, sometimes it's hard to convince a caregiver that they need to take a break too. My mother had that trouble with my Dad (ALS).... he wasn't too comfortable with other people, but he allowed it because he knew she needed the break. She got out for lunch with her friends now and then, and to get her hair done.... he had to convince her that he'd be fine, and that she needed to see her friends and have a little break from the four walls.

I feel your pain, bro.

I put on 10# over the last year or so and I felt like a sausage in my jacket, besides it being a tad too short.

Fixed that....only option is a new jacket.

....and dropping the pounds too...but the season's almost over already.

My mom deciding to go into heart failure and check herself into the hospital when we're 7 hours including a ferry ride across Lake Michigan to get home. Sister's 5 hours away...

At 87 it's hard to be too optimistic. Seems like she's out of hospital tomorrow, but I've never heard quite this degree of resignation in her voice. She's a tough one, so expecting her to have miles left, but I don't want to be missing ominous signals either.

Wife's family is 2000 miles away, so can't feel too sorry for myself.....

Sorry to hear about this. Having met your mom I can hardly imagine hearing resignation in her voice. Fingers crossed..

Thanks, Robert. She’s a tough one. Doesn’t sound critical, but one never knows. Not fun dealing with this stuff from too far away.

I’d invited her for a ride on the BV, so she’d damned well better hang around.

I was in a rush to go to my doctor's appointment this morning. Shoved my feet in my shoes and left as quickly as possible. Spent most of the day going about my business at work. Felt something in my shoe around lunch time. Pulled my foot out and see I had smashed a roach on the side of my foot.
Guts all over my sock and the inside of my shoe. Just tiny pieces of roach left. Had to wear the roach shoe/sock the rest of the day.
