My complaint of the day:

Having to be in a small elevator with people you don't know or even care to. The awkward silence.... Evil or Very Mad

Hey now! I only squeak a little when I walk!

Complaint: I have to fix all the bungled wiring in my 78 f100 I just got. The previous owner had no clue how to do vehicle wiring and it is all screwed up. There goes the next month of weekends.. *Sigh* At least I caught the mess before my truck caught on fire.

I hear you man.

By biggest complaint, is that due to gas prices I was forced to get rid of my truck. I sold it for a nice price, but little did I realize that I also gave up my mobile smoking lounge!  5)

Thanks, I have a car that I use for fuel efficiency, this is going to be my weekend cruiser, unless I can tweak it to get at least 18 mpg.

Keeping in the spirit of the thread: I'm tired of being tired. Non-stop work and running has me exhausted. I haven't had time to study for my Facility Managers Certification tests. I wish I had a few more hours a day to do things that I need and want to do.

I wish I could walk in at the custom's office and kill all the useless assholes sitting there, wasting time and money.

I've bought a pipe off eBay and it's sitting at customs since middle of June. They want proof of payment and an invoice.

So I printed the documents they wanted but.....they want the ORIGINALS! So I offered to go there (35km drive) and open up my eBay account for them to see on my tablet. Not good enough because they can't print from it.

Next I asked them if I may come there and open up my account on their computor to see. No, they can't allow the public to use their computors.

I told them that no stuff gets shipped until it's paid for. They say they KNOW that! But they must have proof that I've paid for my item.

I've asked them to open up the package and compare the pipe in there with the photograph which I took off eBay WITH the price I paid for it also printed next to it. No, they want proof of how much I paid for the bloody thing to calculate the tax. They've got EVERYTHING they've asked for but still some damn fool down the line don't want to release my package.

And worst of all; it's a US$12.50 pipe I'm waiting for. If it's was anything else than an Old England with army mount stem, I would have said KEEP THE EFFEN THING !!!

My name is Pieter and I'm a suffering pipesmoker. Thanks for listening to me.

That's what retirement for. When your young you suppose to work your rear off so you can have plenty of time in retirement to watch others work too hard. If truth be known, I wish I had worked alot harder when I could, then I could pay someone else to watch you guys work too hard.

What's "retirement"? I've just turned 70, as you know, and I'm still working. Somewhere along the line there must be one big mistake, either on your side or mine??

Pete, your pain doesn't go unnoticed, I know how you must feel. I haven't one speck of patience when it comes to waiting on a purchase to get here, specially a pipe and specially if our lazy good for nothing nose picking slack jawed government employees want to make us work harder at doing their job that they get over paid for.

Truth be known, I was forced into retirement. One day I said work and my spine said no, guess who won that argument?

What is it they say, "there's only two things guaranteed in life, death and taxes?"
And our governments will see to both.

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?

No but, I've had my share of Jack Daniels!

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 

Ha! My sweetheart is an INTJ. I'm an ENFP. Life can be interesting sometimes. Being a sapiophile, I was first attracted to his intelligence. It's weird and hard at times, but we seem to balance one another out.

Oh yeah, I'm supposed to complain about something...I hate feminists! The only people who objectify women more than feminists are teenaged boys! Seriously, how can you demand equality and deferential treatment in the same breath!

I received an email today from customs; I may go and collect my pipe tomorrow at our local post office  Very Happy 

And "import duty" is only US$3,90 which I will pay with a BIG smile!

Now I'm still waiting for my Escudo which I've ordered for 4noggings  Evil or Very Mad
