Please limit yourself to 3 grievances per post. (No, this rule cannot be used as a grievance)

1. Why do pregnant women have to be SO MOODY! Why can't my wife just believe me when I tell her she looks great without arguing about it? It's a freaking complement!!!

2. I wish Christmas cookies wouldn't be so delicious. Maybe that way, I don't eat the entire plate within 1 day of it being delivered ( like I did yesterday).

3. I hate bottling beer. It's not the actual process of bottling so much as the prep and clean up work. I should just keg.

1.  Why do I have to work for a living?  I'm sick and tired of working, I just want to drink and play.

2.  Why can't my kids get good jobs and support me like I've done for them for the past 25 years.

3.  Why does the door Nazi at Walmart always stop me and look through my shopping cart like I'm a thief?
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

1) dbeechum's avatar is creepy! Those eyes follow you, and what's he smiling about?

2) my $#!^ coffee machine needs to be repaired every 12-18 months to the tune of about $200

3) Dr. Phil, Suzie Orman et al - peddling common sense as if they invented it!

Why did my parents' generation have to spend us into a recession, so that we twenty-somethings can't get jobs? ($1000 coffee maker guy, I'm looking at you!)

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

1) The newer generation can't do math! If my total is 15.91 at the register and I hand em 21 dollars they look at me like I'm crazy! I tell em nicely to just punch the numbers into their register. (yes, I read your resume')

2) Starbucks coffee is FOUR bux a cup!
(how quickly is that coffee maker offset at 4 coffees a day? http://tinyurl.com/ydpcc38 Days.)

3) People feeling they are entitled to a job.

Ooops!

1. Experts who say we can spend our way out of a recession.

2. People who drive in the left lane, oblivious to the myriad cars passing them on the right.

3. People who correct other people on internet forums.  ;D

Why did my parents' generation have to spend us into a recession



There is a little bit more truth in that thna most want to admit.  Some folks are or became "used to" things a certain way.  The economy literally boomed and many people just got greedy thinking they coudl make more.  They did it For their family though if you can understand that.  

1.) I'm NOT a racist or anything but why are there "special interest" programs on TV?  I pay for it and it offends me.  I love the American Indians and their belief but today I saw a "Dog The Bounty Hunter" show and he was whining about his background and how the "white man" put him down.  That totally deflated me on how I look at hima and his show.  What a crok of s***.  It may have been a few select white men but it wasn't the white man as a race and it makes the whole of white people look like shyt.  All I can say is Dog... you are a dog in my eyes now and forever.


2.) Why doesn't ther rest of the world own up instead of looking to us when we've been hit with so much in the last decade?

3.) If the beer you make makes you happy, why worry what others thingk about it.... brew on!

Denny or whoeverr mods this, you can deltete this if you want....

1.- Passengers who call relatives at their destination and say, "It is not snowing at my aunts house in DC...why can't my plane go?"
     (if your aunts house has a 15,000" X 200" driveway can we land at her house? Oh and we'll need to borrow a ladder.)


2.- Living 8 miles from where I work and having to drive 21 miles to get there...Only one entrance to the airport.

3.- The lack of time. I swear my day only has 18 hours in it and 6 are spent sleeping the other working....

1. Supported units that have a 2000 pound pallet loaded with their gear, and no forklift to get the pallet into the back of the helicopter and then have the nerve to ask, "Well, what are the pilots doing while they're on the ground?  It's not like they couldn't get out and help lift the cargo."  Let me see, we are making sure that the helicopter is safe and stable on the ground- just a minor detail in aviation.

2. No freakin' beer for another 85 days.

3. No freakin' beer for another 85 days.
