The good complaints are too long for me to read and the short ones are too bad for me to care. When is some one going to get a goldy lock sized complaint tailored just for me.

I don't have the attention span for two pages of this,
my nutz itch and a the new baby is keeping me up at night.

Work is too long and gas too expensive.

I don't have enough pipes, tobacco, knives, or money.

I am way too young to feel this old, the knats and mosquitos are starting to come out and I don't like it.

 lol!

That almost sounds like a song I once heard.  Wink

A lot of Waylon Jennings' songs are very good examples of the complaint genre.

Although the song that came to mind was "I'm much too young to feel this damn old"

Cart, when we get over 50 some of us become curmudgeons. The older this group gets, the more curmudgeony (is that a word?) they become. It is what we are and there is no fighting nature. Curmudgeons are complainers. Nuff said.

I just found out the health insurance my company is offering will go up $40 a month for smokers next year. I've complained about this sort of thing before, but at that time it was only $9 a month for smokers. In the mean time anyone who drinks way to much, eats foods that are high in fat or sodium, and leads an unfit lifestyle pays the lower rate for insurance. If I have to pay for a few pipes or cigars every week these people should be paying the same or more than that. If the health insurance Co. is going to make smokers pay more everyone that doesn't live the ideal healthy lifestyle should pay up too. I don't like anyone telling people how to live life. Ounce they segregate all the smokers maybe they will dig into everyone's eating habits, or look into how many drinks they are having a week and charge them more for that too. We have people that can barely get up out of a chair to go get the fast food lunch they have several times a week, yet if you enjoy a smoke or two you pay the price.

I totally agree sir, there's healthier people out there that been smoking all there lives then the buffet whores and drunks that populate this country. What we need and sadly never will is a president that's not a puppet and is really concerned with what is fair and just for this countries people and not concerned about big business.

I add my compliments to flytyers comments on pipe smoking and health insurance. This rises above the level of complaint to that of pet peeve for me. There are many things people do that are not good for their health, but should be left to individual judgment and sense of moderation. Not every thing we do should be subject to government review and tut-tut-tutting. I wonder if someone took illegal drugs, would they be required to confess and pay a higher health insurance premium, or would they be waved through because they suffer from an "addiction sickness?" If the latter, where's the equity?

My personality type is INTJ. If you do not know about personality types I suggest you read up on them and then you would understand.

That is correct and because of that I have views-which can turn into complaints, that in our own INTJ ways are unique. We represent around 2% of the population.

You come across as possibly being an INTJ Cartaphilus, have you ever taken the Myers Briggs?

LOL, you can take them online, it is a fun test to find out more about yourself.

INTJ's value intelligence, knowledge, competence and have high standards in these regards. We also have those expectations of others. Just imagine what I probably complain about (mostly to myself).

Being in Walmart is like a prison sentence to me. affraid

Being anywhere with a crowd of people is a prison sentence for me. As crippled as I am I can get in and out and get everything I went for before most people that enter with me find there first item. I don't spend much time around them, there like a herd of cattle just wandering aimlessly. Drives me nuts to say the least.

I was born complaining and have never stopped.

My beer is too warm and my coffee to cold. Somebody keyed my truck and I saw the little bastard do it. It is too hot here. My neighbors are annoying and yes I am a curmudgeon!

I have a serious complaint. There is never enough time to smoke more pipes. And the best blends are so dang expensive!

Ok, im done complaining. When I see all the blessings I have, it becomes hard to complain.

How about " I don't have enough time left to buy all the pipes I want!"
Works for me.
