Bitchfest

Bitchfest

Get it off your chest: politics, movies, bad TV, stinky people, cable companies, lame websites, crappy tech, Croc sandals, the jerk in the next cubicle, whatever. Point your mouse and shoot! Feeling positive? Head over to the Lovefest Room.

One person has officially drained all of my mental energy with BS today because she is starting up her "the name of your all women's comedy show is transmysoginist" campaign again.
How so? Does it reference anatomy in some way? - Pete's Got To Go

waiting for the plumber. *GRUMP*
WTF. they ring the phone off the hook for the 2 hours BEFORE they're supposed to send the guy, and now he's a no-show. - Big Joe Silenced
dammit, i think this guy stopped for lunch! - Big Joe Silenced
work completed. there's a smoking hole where my checking account used to be. - Big Joe Silenced
Familiar territory. - Eric - Final Countdown

Yikes :( - Jennifer Dittrich

A former student just got a call that she was accepted to Auburn for vet school. I am super-thrilled for her, but then I think that I still can't get a teaching job, all these years after substitute teaching for her.

If a hiring manager can't give a description of DevOps, then DON'T USE IT AS A TITLE! WTF! Seriously people.
The first rule of DevOps... - Meg VMeg
Hahaha, MVM! - Spidra Webster
Elena
Ever wonder why you go places with people only to be ignored?
All. The. Time. No wonder I tend to be a hermit. - Jed
Pretty sure the people I am with wouldn't notice if I left until it's my turn to bowl. And even then I'm doing so poorly they would probably be glad I left - Elena from FFHound!
I'm sorry. People fucking suck. - Jed
yup. and some of us don't even have to go anywhere to be ignored by the ppl we're with. - Big Joe Silenced
I stopped going out with one of my friends because she'll spend the entire time texting other people when we are out. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
And that's why I'm single. - vicster.
They booted me out of the game without even talking to me. I don't feel well, I hurt all over and I'm pissy. Would have been nice for someone to say "hey are you felling ok?" - Elena from FFHound!
Yolanda
I don't feel well. My tummy is squiggy and the tiny person has been keeping odd hours lately. Bleh bleh sniffles
:-( - vicster.

Thought I was doing a nice thing for my kid by replacing her crappy cheap phone with a less crappy cheap phone. According to my wife, NOPE! Fuck. Can't win for losing...

My favourite type of tech support starts with spending 5 minutes talking the person through the start menu to find the Internet Explorer icon.

So, when you turn in all your stuff late, it's just fine, but then you get to hit me with a freaking email on Sunday asking why all your shit isn't graded yet? It's been a day and a half dude.

Lovefest: Listening to cardinals and blackbirds sing and seeing the sun break out of the clouds as I shovel snow.
Bitchfest: More snow falling out of the trees just after I'm finished shoveling. - John (bird whisperer)
That just means more pictures of snow blossoms! - Kristin
Oh, I do have some more photos. But after a couple hours, it looked like I hadn't shoveled at all! - John (bird whisperer)
I don't miss that at all John. My brother-in-law sent Kesha a picture of all the snow from Philly last night with the caption "Do you miss this?" Nope. Definitely not. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
The good thing is that a lot of it will melt today. - John (bird whisperer)
Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
fuckity fuck fuck fuck dammit shit. My wedding ring is gone
Oh no! - The Other Yvonne
I haven't taken it off except for when I expected my hands to get really nasty in almost 25 years. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Any luck finding it yet? - Anne Bouey
Nope. It's gone. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
:( - Jen
So what do I do? replace it? I'm coming up on 25 years married in 2016. Maybe renew our vows then and both of us get new ones? Just buying a new ring doesn't feel right. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
I FOUND IT! Somehow it was in my daughter's martial arts gear bag - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
^YAY! :) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
My father lost his wedding ring about ten years ago when we were out cutting down our Christmas tree. He didn't notice until we were at the car ready to head home, so we tried to trace all our steps to see if we could find it...spent two solid hours...nothing. A couple years later, my folks ended up getting new rings - really inexpensive cute ones they found at a local shop that was... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
Amanda, the same thing happened with my stepfather's. Except he was planting in the garden when the ring fell off. He replaced it with a slightly smaller one, and then 3 years later his original band came out of the ground while he was digging potatoes. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
One time, my best friend and I were helping to build a barbecue. Hours later, I noticed my wedding ring was gone. I assumed it fell into the cement. So, my best friend and I spent the entire night taking the barbecue apart and searching for my ring. Nothing! The next day, while we were eating hamburgers, I bit right into my ring! The ring was in the meat! Turns out, my husband hid my... more... - AHnix (Anna Haro)
HA HA HA Anna! - Corinne L

While I do appreciate you HATE when I say "Wait..." when trying to explain something to you, saying it's a bit condescending, if you'd actually left me finish my second sentence without jumping in with wild assumptions and negative extremes, you'd have the answer.

When your cousin posts about oral sex conversation with SO on Facebook...

more than a few times i would pay for food at Sonic with cash and expect change and the carhop would just smile and say "Thanks!" and skate off with nearly $5 of my money.
Carhop+3.jpg
Many words were shared with shift managers over time. - Big Joe Silenced
I haven't had that problem at Sonic in quite a while. I always try to tip at least a dollar and change to the carhop. - Greg GuitarBuster
thing is, carhops don't get taxed on potential tips like wait staff in restaurants. - Big Joe Silenced
Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
Know what, FUCK goddamn girl scout cookies. I don't need the fucking headache. Fucking troop leader can't fucking keep shit straight.

To all the FF users who left and are only now coming back because they read the news today, YES WE ARE STILL HERE. We didn't leave, YOU DID. There are still a high number of dedicated, daily FriendFeed users who are sad to see the site go, so your comments of "wow, you're still here?" are quite tiresome.
Also, we're great. - Andrew C (✔)
You ain't never lied, Andrew. - Corinne L
Wow, you're still here? - Scott from Android
Don't test me, Scott, I've been drinking AND my hormones are all out of wack. - Corinne L
SO MUCH THIS. Also, what's the point of coming back just to say that. It's pretty arseholish. - Melly
And all the people coming back to make "one last post." BITE ME. Just shut down your account now. - Corinne L
^oh, don't do that! I might have left really witty comments on some of their posts. - Andrew C (✔)
:-) They are no longer worthy of your wit, Andrew. - Corinne L
Sure, but the rest of y'all still are! - Andrew C (✔)
You are quickly earning TWO birthday cupcakes. - Corinne L
Seeing some old posts made me realize how many of the comments are missing from closed accounts. - Stephan Planken
I have to admit I'm not a daily user, but I've dipped in and out on a fairly regular basis over time. - Ian May
I admit to having pulled back a bit over the past year, but I'm still here. maybe we should all chain ourselves to something so they can't close it down. - Gunneh-MoTo Calls me that
And I'm happy that y'all are still here. This place was my Cheers for a long time. I left for a spell but it was also comforting to know that I could stop in for a drink anytime. - chrisofspades
I don't post anymore but I still do check in and read quite a bit. So just looking at my posting history, it might appear like people like myself are just coming back because of the news. I don't see the point in anyone making "you're still here?" types of comments, but coming back to check on people, save information, and get contact info before everything is deleted is important for many. I don't feel I should have to rush to shut my account down now just because I haven't made a post in quite some time. - Rochelle
Rochelle...exactly - Shevonne
Hmm, I must have missed those 'are you still here?' posts. I've seen them in the past but not since the news broke. I never took offense to it. I think I saw it as an awkward, not so graceful way of saying 'Hi.' It can be intimidating popping back in here after being gone for a while, especially if the folks you were once tight with left or are not as active/visible. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Anna, there was a tone to some of those posts - my perception of the tone, of course - that bugged me more than anything. To me, it felt like the old boyfriend/girlfriend who ends the relationship and fails to recognize that the other person will go on and thrive without their attention. Maybe I'm just hormonal and hypersensitive, though. The folks who are posting on this thread (with... more... - Corinne L
Oh, you mean 'Dick tone' posts? Yeah, that's not okay. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
I admit it, I left. I came back when the news broke. But I can understand how tiresome the posts are - OMG!!! FRIENDFEED IS HEAR!!! But a community as intense as this cannot be broken. It, at the end, was, and still is, much more than just a website. - #cryptic
You get it, Helen. I appreciate that. I'm pretty sure you were the first FF'er I met IRL. - Corinne L
Johnny
This insurance situation is difficult enough without you injecting your conspiracy theories. Please don't tell me them, I've heard them all already and they don't hold water. Also, don't interrupt my serious discussions with the people involved to seed the theories cause it muddies the quest for clarity.

You know who doesn't know what the fuck they are doing with technology in schools? Pearson. That is all.

Hey, you know how you know your pop culture site is on track? When another comic site completely apes your format and layout and plug-ins. Poor form, folks.
What f$ckery. - YvonneM
Pretty much. - Jed
Jenny H.
I want to ask all the questions right now, but I have a massive headache that's impairing my brain function. :(
Gurl. Take care of yourself. Ask tomorrow. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
We have all of March and some of April. Rest, and I hope you feel better soon. - Stephen Mack

OK, I finally joined the Bitchfest room because I have a major complaint: Facebook is closing down my favorite website.
Seriously, what the ever-loving blue hell is this? - El Conejo Viejo
More proof that the world is a broken place. - Kevin Johnson

waking up at 5 Am with horrible stomach cramps. Not my idea of fun. I feel like I've been hit by a truck.
Oh noes. Hope you feel better soon. There's a stomach bug going around at Cassie's school. Fingers crossed it misses us! Ack. - Carmen

Fuck you, desktop TurboTax. How can you fail to save the whole thing after all the input was done. GODDAMMIT.

If you have clothes on the floor and the cat pukes on them, it's because they are on the floor. If you don't want Princess Pukes-a-lot puking on your stuff, keep it the hell off the floor, and stop interrupting my working to bitch about it! I don't get paid to be your maid, but I do get paid to do the work you keep interrupting!
If you want to eat next month, knock it off! - April Russo (FForever!)

SO MANY TYPOS AND BAD GRAMMAR IN THE LEARNING MATERIALS OUR CHILDREN BRING HOME FROM SCHOOL! *capslock off* Pearson Learning can SUCK it.
My mom would mark up the materials and send them back to school with us. :) The teachers got to know my mom between 9 kids and her english degree. - Steve C, Team Marina
You want to mark 'em up, I'll happily deliver them to Pearson's doorstep. They're right here in town. - laura x
Yay, laura x! - Spidra Webster
initially i was making the suckers bleed and writing comments in the margins. then i got notes back saying "We know but it's what we're stuck with." - Big Joe Silenced
Yeah--the teachers are the victims here, not the culprits. - laura x
My sister used to edit math books for a competitor of Pearson's but she left due to poor working environment and her edits being rejected in place of an incorrect answer one too many times. - Galadriel C. from Android
i used to be an analyst for Harcourt/Reed Elsevier from 2000 til 2002. i have stories. - Big Joe Silenced

>.> Dominic went to the leasing office to pick up a package. He showed up at the same time as another Asian man. The clerk gave them each others' packages and IDs. Because Asians, you know.
Ughhhhhh. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yep. Dominic noticed it before he left the building, so he left the other guy's ID there. But now he can't leave the apartment until he gets his driver's license back. - Jessie
Ah it sounds like at some point they did end up with the correct packages, but not IDs. So Dominic did get the computer stuff he ordered. Better than someone else ending up with it, I guess. - Jessie
Did he get his license back? - Anne Bouey
Yes! :D - Jessie
Oy vey. :-( - YvonneM
A while back, similar thing happened at work. Staff member gave the wrong ID back to someone. Both patrons were black men. If it makes any difference (not that it should), staff member was also black. So yeah, it happens. - bentley

Once again my brother (who lives on the other side of the country) inadvertently forgets to tell me life-changing news (this time, that he's moving in with his gf). I don't know why I'm surprised anymore. I wish I didn't care.
=( I'm so sorry. I hate being out of the loop on my family stuff too (we're also on opposite sides of the country). Maybe he doesn't think it's that big a deal? - The Other Yvonne
I love that you put "The Other Yvonne." No, he probably doesn't. For some reason it really triggers my baggage, not sure why. - YvonneM
For me, I get upset because I'm the one that moved and it constantly affirms my fears that I'm forgotten. But I'm also getting better at taking a deep breath, swallowing my pride, and calling family to say 'I heard some good news! Is it true?". It's also hard for me because if some of them weren't family, they'd be HORRIBLE friends! Lol! ***hugs*** - The Other Yvonne
Thanks. I'm the one who moved, too. ETA: I was thinking of moving back out there and this isn't exactly an incentive. - YvonneM
