Most common vents for you - Page 2

post #31 of 48
Definitely work-related. I work with the most selfish, laziest co-workers I've ever worked with (and I'm even talking compared to my part-time job in the summer with high school students) and every day is a battle to get to work because I know I have to deal with them. Likewise, my boyfriend has some lousy co-workers and I'm constantly irritated with them - but he had a job interview today so here's hoping it went well and he gets the job!

My sister did it just to annoy me when we were growing up, and I once broke 4 of her fingers. I fired more that 1 person for doing either of these things when I was in management, and gave them a terrible reference when called for another job.
Stupid people annoy me almost as badly, as do people that allow their children to run wild in public.
People that have loud booming stereos, blaring offensive so-called lyrics also *isses me off. I absolutely HATE rap and hip-hop! I won't even call that garbage music.
Gee! I feel better! Thanks!
Wow! Venting is one thing but breaking someone's fingers! Have you ever looked into anger management? Have you ever had any abuse charges laid against you?

Too many things make me angry, & that is one of them.
It makes me wonder about these abusive people. Most of them do their awful things behind closed doors. I wonder what would happen if the truth came out, like at their jobs. If I knew that one of the guys at work punched his kid when angry, I'd shame him right out of there. I'm a skinny girl with a big, fearless mouth, & vent often!
I believe that more of us should do the same, when we see something wrong.
Please hang in there! Get a good education, & get the heck out.

Don't worry about me, my dear. *hugs* I'll be alright. He does, but not too hard, and not too often. I act up, I admit. Thanks for being concerned.

And I'm sorry, but, he *punches* you? That is abuse, and you should report it. How terrible, I'm so sorry.

I agree. He doesn't do it because he's angry, and he wants to take it out on me. No, then I would report it. I act up. I yell, tease my brother, I admit it. he gets mad, and sometimes can't help it. But he is better about it. Aw, your concern means alot though.

Aw, we all do. Its great venting like this to each other. As already said, it feels like we are all one big family.

I hate school. I hate that we aren't payed for what we do. I hate that the law forces us to go. I hate that I have so many people bossing me around. Sometimes, a feel so helpless.

I also had to admit what she did was crazy. I only broke someone's nose in self defense. I was being choked. I think she might need some help....

Jenny sweetie,,there is no excuse for punching of any sort, especially not from an adult male. "Acting up" doesnt qualify as a good excuse either,,,I hope your situation really isnt too bad hon., I think you are too old for physical pucishment though, especially 'punching'.

The finger breaking incident was years ago, and it was the culmination of many months of torment by my disgusting, nasty sister. She lived to aggravate and torment me, and during my somewhat misspent youth, I snapped on her several times when I just could not take it any more. She was about 300 lbs., I was about 100, and she would sit on me, gnaw her nails bloody, and spit them on me. She was abusive to all her siblings, and none of us stayed in the house one day longer than we legally had to. She is the most horrible human being that ever lived, and I still cannot stand the sight of her. She lives to torment and abuse anyone she can, and seems to be proud of it. She has no friends, and only my daughter will give her the time of day. I tolerate her in very small doses for my daughter's sake. She is usually on her best behavior when we have to be around each other. I almost hate to admit it, but I have made her scared of me. She is the one that is defenseless now, and even though I would now walk away before I snapped on someone in a wheelchair, she does not know that.

Mines work, mostly. It's hard to explain but I have this psycho woman who has supervisory duties over my program (i work at a college), and I have been doing this for so long there isn't much that needs fine tuning anymore. But she likes to come up something...anything to bug me about. Iam worried she is undermining my future if I choose to move.
Other than that I feel my life is running aok at the moment.

When you love someone and they do something that hurts you the first instinct is to find a reason (read: excuse). There is the concern that if the person can hurt you like this, then maybe they don't love you as much as you thought, and so coming up with a rational reason for the behavior feels better. However, his hitting you isn't an expression of his lack of love for you, it is quite simply that your father has self-control issues. Everyone gets mad (sometimes furious), but most of us are able to hold firm and express our anger more constructively (like this forum!!). Now here is another truth: you could break every breakable object in the house and scream the most foul things at him that you can imagine . . . and he still should not hit you. While you say you understand that your "acting up" is not an excuse, it doesn't sound like you actually believe that, darling. The fact that your father gets violent (even if "mild") has everything to do with what is going on INSIDE him, and what triggers it is really irrelevant. Family counseling would probably be a GREAT idea. It would give you a forum for your family to talk about issues in a more neutral setting in the presence of a moderator. Anyway, I bet I sound all preachy (blah, blah, blah . . .). I just want to be sure you’re really OK and not just putting up a brave front (no big deal . . .). So, I suppose I should actually get on to venting . . . .

Work. I love my coworkers, but I hate the mess that some of them leave in the break room. How can you spill coffee all over the counter, and leave a swath of spilled sugar and NOT CLEAN IT UP!!!!!!! Argggggg!!! Plus, I hate to say it, but it really irritates me when I get official letters from agencies, and the letters contain glaring grammatical errors. Although it can be good for a laugh!

I have a petty work vent, please. I have written on the cleaning schedule, which is a schedule listing various daily duties that must be initialed by each nursing shift "empty trash at end of each shift". Constantly I come in, and the wastebasket is full! This bugs me! Guess one of my pet peeves is a full trash can. I don't want to see my own trash full, let alone someone elses! It's just aggravating to start a shift with an already full trash can. How complicated is this? You're a nurse, you have a degree, Take out your trash!
Has it been a busy shift?..I see..Are we out of liners?..Fine..Have you broken a limb?..I understand and will be happy to take it out immediately upon my arrival! Otherwise, come on, just empty your trash!
This has been therapeutic, and I believe I will go post it in the "Petty Pet Peeve" thread, too, if everyone will disregard my double post, please.

Mines work as well!.

I'm fed up of having to hear the same people moaning day in and day out about the slightest problem they have with either the work place or life in general

Everyone is entitled to a moan now and again but some of this lot where i work seem to spend their entire lives wasting valuable time and energy on moaning!!

Family for me. I have relatives that make me wish there were no human beings on earth. When my dad was still working he used to help his less fortunate brothers and sisters. He would send money for his nieces and nephews schooling or whatever. Now that these people are successful, they treat him like he doesn't exist. What a bunch of ingrates!

That isn't petty at all, Stephiane. How annoying. Part of being a nurse is keeping everything clean and ready for the patients. Its part of their job, they need to do it! Did you talk to them about it?

I'm glad this helps some of you guys, I hoped it would.

How dare they! UGH! I understand why you would be upset. If I were them, I'd be down on my knees thanking him. Your father helped them out, and they most likely wouldn't be this far without him.
