Go away sinus headache! I have things to do and you're bringing me down.
Mary Carmen
I don't know how you can live with yourself or justify your behavior.
Derrick
Complain, complain, complain.

So tired of people complaining about Colorado weather. Yes, it was in the 70's yesterday and it is snowing today. Get over it. You bitch when it's cold in winter, then you bitch it's too hot in summer. Just shut up already!
Eric - Watch Me Now
Yes. - Jenny H. from Android
Same. - Derrick
I got so much avoidance behavior around this right now, it's not even funny. Blerg. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Do it during the blood red lunar eclipse. That should be good luck. - Doge Joe

Look, you French-speaking Swiss ladies: I went out of my way to speak French with you, so don't scoff at my Québécois accent. C'est pas gentil, les filles.
This is why I didn't continue with my HS French. I heard too many horror stories about how you can never speak it well enough to suit them. - Spidra Webster
But how would they be treated by French-speaking French ladies? - Corinne L
I'm guessing they'd get shade for their Swiss accents. - Spidra Webster
Spidra, I have yet to go to France as an adult because I am such a perfectionist and hate the thought of trying to speak in French only to be laughed at. My BFF from grade school on married a man from Brittany and her 3 daughters, all raised and educated in France, are starting to tell her that her accent is all wrong (our high school French teacher was from Montreal). - Corinne L
My middle school French teacher was from Bordeaux and taught proper, polite French (who later on went to work as an interpreter for Air France for awhile, before coming back to teaching). My high school French teacher was an Italian immigrant that learned his French on the streets of Paris, and sounded a lot like Dracula, while he chopped off the ends of words and used a lot of slang... more... - April Russo
I think my experience must be anomalous, as I have been to France a couple of times, and have had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know a number of French people here, and while they all say I have a clear accent (I'd never pass for a native speaker, but...you know, duh...) not one has ever given me a hard time about it. My impression was always that they were pleasantly surprised... more... - Bren
Attention! I speak French properly, and well. My accent, however, is Québécois. Their attitude, and some of what I'm hearing on this thread (frankly) is classist. - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
Brent, when I said "well enough for them", I meant that I'd heard unless one's accent was perfectly France French, preferably Parisian, it wasn't good enough for them. In no way did I mean that your French wasn't proper French. - Spidra Webster
Brent - I'm intimidated to speak French around anyone who's fluent, regardless of their accent. Unless it was my favorite French phrase, "J'en ai marre!" I figure when you yell that one, accent is no longer an issue. - Corinne L
I met some French speaking Canadians on one of my travels that had the same experience in France (they were told their French sounded archaic). They were treated no better than their English speaking travel companions. - Eivind

making it personal over the least appropriate thing. being a vindictive asshole. double standards.
So you're basically against fun. - Professor A.I.

Please stop posting pictures of your feet. No really. #stopit

This is insane! healthcare.gov is such a fucking mess! By all household income guidelines, my hubby and I should BOTH be eligible for Medicaid. But for whatever reason, they have decided NOT to treat us as a married couple, NOT combine our incomes. They are treating us as 2 single adults. So one of us gets Medicaid and the other doesn't?
Derrick
Idiots.
Are you doing okay? - Katy S
I'm peachy, I just have no patience for people who are just flat out dumb-umb. They waste my time and my time is valuable. - Derrick
I hear that. I've had to restrain myself from snapping at a few such folks lately. - Katy S

I'm still kinda cheesed off that dumb parents make stupid comments when they see g playing football...sorry that she is a better ball player than your son....
Shit yeah she is. - Mary Carmen

I hate worrying about running into someone I don't want to see. Sucks the fun out of going out somewhere. :/
(Curtis/Alan) Jackson
Of course the password didn't work, YOU DIDN'T READ YOUR FUCKING EMAIL TELLING YOU HOW TO LOG IN TO THE NEW SYSTEM AND INSTEAD BANGED YOUR STUPID APE HANDS ON THE KEYS WHICH ONLY MANAGED TO LOCK YOU OUT. Guess you're not going to get paid, moron. I shouldn't have to hold your hand on this simple task. So. Angry. At. Stupidity.
Just gotta breathe, my man. But, I understand totally where you are coming from. Some days I just wanted to scream at people. - Yolanda
Sigh, if it were only this one thing for this one person. Alas, it is not. I have recovered, btw. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
This was me when we transitioned to new software. Forgive me :( - Janet
*waves hands generically in air* You are forgiven. Go forth and ignore emails/instructions no more. :) - (Curtis/Alan) Jackson
A bitch. Why does IT make my log in name all caps and then require my new password to be mixed case? Just saying the old log in for the past 15 years worked a-ok. I dare you to move the key port on your vehicle and see how many times you mess up ;) - Janet from FFHound!
Derrick
"Look at me! Look at me!"
I'm good. - Derrick
Corinne L
The love: federal taxes are filed; state is ready to be filed. The bitch: I owe money, though I knew I would; I didn't save my login info for CalFile to LastPass last year for some stupid reason, and I didn't write it down anywhere.
:), :( - Anne Bouey
Corinne L
The moment when I start to type a bitchfest item about someone else, then realize I do very similar things. *backspace backspace backspace*
Derrick
So dramatic. Calm down.
Well, I never! *flounces off* - Corinne L
haha. - Derrick
*arms flapping* - Yolanda
Pretty sure this person has some issues that aren't being addressed. Bi polar? I don't know. I wish they'd get some help, because these swings back and forth? No ma'am. - Derrick

Workplace politics.
So much. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

fucking telemarketer called three times in a row and i lifted and dropped the receiver each time. TAKE THE HINT.
YES. I'm talking to you, "Overseas Private Number". - Melly

The social majority is unassailable when you're part of it.

Wade was so sick last night. Think I might be getting it today.
How're you doing, Laura? - Anne Bouey
So far, OK, Anne, thanks! Just feel a little twinge of something. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Take care of yourself. :) - Anne Bouey
Ugh, I just realized his fever seemed kind of unexplained and came about a week or so after he got a tick bite. Better go to doc. We saved the tick, but I just found out I was supposed to keep it alive. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
oh man. hope it's not related. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Oh geez. :-/ - vicster: full-bodied
Hopefully a total coincidence. There are always regular viruses going around. Think I will not panic and wait until his annual physical next week to ask about it. He's still having stomach pains, but he just had the one bout of fever - no rash at the site of the bite, so that's a good sign. - Laura Norvig
Corinne L
Confusing UI on client's site + PMS = bad combination.
:-( *hugs* - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
This damn thing is supposed to be done in 20 days and while I'm not concerned about writing the content, figuring out the damn interface and finding royalty-free images/video is a bigger challenge. It will all work itself out...it will all work itself out... - Corinne L
*sends Hogwarts-like plates of savory and sweet treats, depending on what kind of PMS you're having at any given moment* - vicster: full-bodied
Thanks Tam & Vic. (Rooney has just laid down in front of the keyboard & is purring madly - I will take that as his way of saying hello to you both.) - Corinne L

Hulu is crap.
Short life of material. My wife then paid for Hulu plus. Still loads of mind numbing ads. Won't play on portable devices. Canceled plus. - Ian May
You're the third person I've heard complain about Hulu and/or HuluPlus recently. I don't have a TV and Hulu is my main source of home entertainment, so paying for access to more shows is fine with me. I've noticed that older programs have fewer ads ("Leverage" comes to mind), and when I watched "Angel" at the beginning of the year, there weren't any ads at all. My main issue is when they play the same ad 3+ times within the course of one 45-minute program. - Corinne L
I have no problem with paying for content. My gripes are a paid service should be ad free, shows shouldn't expire so quickly and I should be able to use my tablet or cellphone to watch. That's three big minuses, particularly the inability to use my tablet. - Ian May
The ad thing is a sticking point, but everything has ads. Cable TV, newspapers, even commercials in the movie theater. Unless you pay outright for the episode, it's hard to get away from the ads. - Eric - Watch Me Now
^^this. The inability to watch on portable devices when that's part of the deal with HuluPlus is definitely an issue. - Corinne L
That is an issue with the rights holder. They limit access to certain devices because they want to be able to tell their advertisers that their primary revenue is through broadcast. They don't want streaming to become the preferred medium of viewing. To be honest, they make many times more money through broadcast than through streaming, especially for the most popular shows, and I doubt we'll see a shift anytime soon. - Eric - Watch Me Now

I hate useless meetings. Such a waste of time.

Parents who watch their kid scream at you to shut up, and then get upset when you tell the kid to be respectful to adults.
Parents nowadays are awful - Shevonne from iPhone
Recently heard "Come here, Charmaine, you f***ING little bitch, before I kick your f**ING head in". Charmaine was about three. Mother looked about 22. No wonder Kids are growing up the way some are - Ian May
Big Joe Silence
i love my dad, but whenever he's watching a movie or TV show he has to LOUDLY COMMENT ON EVERY LITTLE THING ALL THE TIME EVEN IF NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR IT COS THEY'RE TRYING TO WATCH.
so fucking annoying. - Big Joe Silence
What's worse is that those people then do the same thing at the cinema. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
happily, my dad only does this around family and mostly at my house. he's not like this in public. - Big Joe Silence
Mo Kargas
3 project managers and 1 developer. Anyone seeing the issue here?
