Ugh, that is annoying! Seems like those “dated briefly” guys are always the hardest to get rid of 😛

 

Alright, here’s mine because I need to vent:

I swear to God, if this priest doesn’t call me back (like today!) I am going to find another church and another priest, and just eat the cost of the invitations we’ve already sent out. This isn’t the priest Fiance grew up with, it’s not the priest I went through RCIA with. We have no personal attachment to this priest. In fact, he did our Engaged Encounter and we couldn’t stand him! It wasn’t our choice for our beloved priest to retire. Nor was it our choice to have this one randomly take over for him (seriously, how did that even happen?!) Now on top of just being rude and arrogant, he has decided any wedding decisions we had previously made must be discussed again with him. No, we are not allowed to talk to Sister (who we had previously been doing a lot of work with) only him. Oh but he’s going to take a month-long vacation right after he starts as our new Priest and he’ll probably get back to us at the beginning of August. Well here it is, the end of August, and no phone call. Not only no phone call, but he won’t return our calls. I’ve had it. I’m having the worst stress dreams over not having any of the ceremony planned, and he can’t be bothered to sit down and talk to us. I’m seriously just ready to have the wedding somewhere else. But this is our home church, why should we have to move? He should move. Grr.

Omg I love venting 🙂

My cousin’s wife keeps texting me asking for the distance between the church and the reception, the reception and the random hotel they chose, the hotel and church… I feel like screaming “I’m not freaking mapquest!!!! Google it yourself!!!”

CindyRelly, we asked Sister if *our* priest could just do the wedding for us and she said she didn’t think *new priest* would let us do that. She seems almost afraid of him (everything she said was whispered, like she was afraid he’d hear us) She actually told us we have to do whatever *new priest* tells us to do. We can’t argue with him or say “well this is what we want.” Those were her words. I’m terrified at this point.

@PinkPinstripes: OMG, I got SO many of those the DAY BEFORE THE WEDDING! I’m in traffic running around like damn chicken with my head cut off and people keep calling/texting with random questions.

One person was asking me for the THIRD time what time the rehearsal was that night. The same time the last time you called. and the same that’s in the email you got last week.

One was my cousin asking what time the ceremony/reception were and where they were at. Did you even glance at the invitation that clearly spelled it out and gave you directions? Or did you not think to call my mom or call sooner than the day before?

 

@swanks4tw: you are asking for a service. He should provide it with a happy attitude.  I’d seriously check if the retired priest would marry you – just tell the new one that you have such a history with the retired one that you’d love it if he could do that. I’m not Catholic (DH is) but I know at my church after a favorite pastor retired, he still came back to do a couple funerals for close parishoners and a couple weddings too.

@PinkPinstripes:

BAH! That drives my Fiance crazy!! He tells people “Pick up your iPhone and google maps it”! 

Vent:

My Future Mother-In-Law forwarded me an address for the guest list. She forwarded the original one too, which was to her friend and it said “Hey I am being nagged, get me address” so I tell my Fiance that I feel bad that she feels like I am nagging her, and that I also don’t agree with how she just forwards things haphazardly like that! So then he says: “Well that’s mom, and you know South African’s say things differntly!” I DO know all of this, but more times than not, we are always saying “well that’s mom! she just doesn’t think before she speaks!” It got under my skin yesterday and I said “Well nagging means something different in America and she’s been here for 13 years!” Ha! Anyway, point is, I just get a little annoyed when we always have to revolve around Future Mother-In-Law and give her a free pass for being offensive (which she is a lot of the time, LOL).

@CindyRelly: Family draa sucks.

I’m so frustrated with my SO parents..mainly his dad. I’m sick of them leeching off my SO and always asking to borrow money. I just want to yell at him and tell him to his s___ together! I’m more upset of the way he went about asking this last time. Instead of asking nicely and being grateful he was as ass about it and was like “if you don’t let me borrow the money we’re going to be evicted” First off all.. I’m sorry but that’s too bad, learn how to manage your money!

The priets issue would annoy the piss outta me!

Here is my rant: Fiance is in grad school and super stressed right now and working his but off in prep for his prelims, so I have taken over ALL of the household stuff….honestly, he comes home to eat dinner and then goes back up to work.  I can never bitch to him about this because he has enough to stress about.  But I am the one working THREE jobs so we can save enough money for this wedding.  I am the one who moved to this tiny-ass town where I am underemployed..and working multiple jobs so we can have the wedding and honeymoon we want.  Is it to much to freakin ask to put away the GD laundry every once in a while?

Argh!  OK, rant over.  Movin’ on.

I’m tired of my (otherwise wonderful) Darling Husband bitching about his job.  Sometimes I just want to snap “At least you HAVE a job!!” And he doesn’t appreciate just how good a job it is for him. I get that it’s frustrating to be in an entry-level position at 34, but that’s what happens when you quit a PhD program without finishing it! I supported him (emotionally, not financially) for a year of unemployement before this job came along. I view it as a GODSEND. All he can see are the negative aspects of it. It’s so frustrating. Can’t you just count your damn blessings?!!

Oohh venting!  I was supposed to me my DOC yesterday so she could pick up my favors that are chocolate and can’t be stored at the reception venue.  I forgot to bring them with me to work so I rushed home to pick them up.  Found a perfect parking spot to get in the back of our condo.  Got to the back doors and they were broken and I needed to run to the front.  Got all my favors and got back to work.  I called an hour later to confirm that we were meeting that night, and she goes “OMG, I totally forgot, can we do it another night?”  I gritted my teeth and politey said yes and she’s picking them up Friday from my condo.  They are still here at work though because I don’t want them to melt in my car and I have so many wedding errands to run after work everyday I can’t take them home! Grrrrrr…

@Rock Hugger: When are his prelims?  Unless they’re within the next month, tell him he needs to step it up at home – this isn’t sustainable for you.  (I know whereof I speak – I’m a few months away from getting my PhD.) It’s good that he’s working so hard, but he needs to establish a workable schedule, because he’s got several more years of hard work/long hours in front of him, even if there’s a temporary reprieve after his exams. It’s not fair of him to put everything else on you.
