This is a spin off to a thread that was recently closed. The OP posted about someone hired to work a wedding. It was unclear whether or not the OP was intending it to be a review or just to be venting. Several bees took the chance to post short, random vents of their own. While halrious, it was understandable that the mods closed the thread. Not knowing OP’s intention, it could have defintely been taken the wrong way or “headed no where good” as Mrs. Mouse pointed out. So props to the mods for keeping things respectful around the hive.
BUT…that got me to thinking. Does anyone else sometimes just needs to air your grievances without having to explain why you’re upset? I do this with my best friend occasionally…just out of no where, one of us will be like “Screw that guy! He sucks!” The other person typically responds with something along the lines of “Yeah, and his stupid cat chews too loud!” Then we carry on about our lives. No long discussion, no explainations. Just a straight to the point, that person can take a hike and stop breating my air moment. Its quite cathartic. Anyone else do this?
What do you say, we take a moment to get things off our chests?? Say the things you wish you could say to someone’s face but can’t. All the benefits of venting but none of the aftermath awkwardness. The ground rules: 1.No need to elaborate or give lots of details (obviously, don’t give any true identifying details). 2. Keep it classy – air your own grievances but don’t bring up another bee’s. She/he can air their own if they wish to participate. 3. You can support another bee but don’t knock his/her grievance. You’re allowed to be catty to the unnamed masses that we’re venting about but not to one another. Got it? Are you in?
1. Sandy – stop talking. You sound like a mouse who’s having its toenails ripped out one by one. Just shut it.
2. Greg – your face pisses me off.
3. Cafeteria lady who makes the wraps – How hard is it to roll my freaking wrap without ripping it to shreds?! I didn’t want a salad with strips of tortilla shell. Screw it, just give me a ham sandwhich.

just_another_dandelion: An employee at my job’s wife recently had a baby. When this happens, they always share baby pictures to all staff members. This time, the picture this guy included was of his wife, clearly in pain/crying, and the baby all covered in goo! Clearly, a picture almost immediately after she gave birth. UH – WHY on earth would you share this with 100+ staff members?!?!?!?!?!

coworkers: start acting like you care or quit. Really. This job is important. We may be grossly underpaid and overworked,but our clients deserve better.

Um yeah, we’re all busy, we all have a lot of work to do, so quit bitching to me about it and just do your job so I can do mine. Grrr!
If it wasn’t clear, that was my grievance, NOT directed at the OP lol 😛

My grievance for today is with the café where I bought my lunch, and the lunatic who makes the food.
I have been looking forward ALL week to my Friday lunch of a soup and sandwich and eyeing up the delicious soups they have been making all week (carrot ginger! potato leek! rustic tomato!)
So I rushed there today, money in hand ready for my delicious lunch and….it was mushroom soup. MUSHROOMS ARE DISGUSTING. They are the only vegetable I cannot stand and will not eat. I was SO SAD, you guys. I wanted my soup and sandwich and now I can’t because some jerk decided to make soup with the foulest food ever created.
And to top it off, my sandwich was not good. Chicken salad but all dark meat with red peppers mixed in- blech! I like peppers but I also like my chicken salad to not have them.
So all in all, a disappointing lunch.

Our A/C is broken! And we don’t know when our landlord is going to fix it. And it’s going to be 100 degrees this weekend. And we have two dogs.

Trash my f***ing house again and you can start staying at a hotel when you visit. Jesus Christ, you’re an adult, but you act like a friggin’ toddler who I am not allowed to discipline.
Better yet, don’t visit anymore! How much less stressful my life would be in that case!
Ah, I do feel better. Thanks for that, OP.
Also, Greg’s face pisses me off too. It’s like, do something with that face of yours. Don’t you know it’s offending people? Don’t you even care??

How difficult is it to put your phone away for 30 minutes? If I hang out with you or go out for a nice lunch/dinner, I want to have a conversation, not watch you browse Facebook. You can do that any time.
Also, family members, I’ve only been married for 6 days. No, we have no idea when we want kids, so stop asking. And don’t assume that people who get married automatically want kids. That’s also not cool to do.

I’m so sick of Leon and June on Gogglebox. He never has anything good to say about anything (unless he’s learing at a young woman) and the show features them WAAAAAY too much. I could put up and shut up if they were on a couple of times but it’s like they’re the stars of the show! I don’t want to stop watching Gogglebox, I used to really like it, but these two are spoiling it so much that I’m not really enjoying it anymore. And if I’m not enjoying it what’s the point of watching? I say the same of Coronation Street sometimes though.

Why are there only going to be 7 seasons of Sons of Anarchy? Why? What am I going to watch after this season, huh? I WANT ANSWERS KURT SUTTER.
Also, I think Marcia sucks too.

Dear next door neighbors, I appreciate that you both have a great love life. Try biting a pillow though.
