DearSugar's Venting Machine: Hello? Hello?

DearSugar's Venting Machine: Hello? Hello?

Welcome to DearSugar’s Venting Machine, a place to air and share your daily grievances.

Research strongly indicates that rumination and pent-up frustration are bad for our well-being and our relationships. Let it go here, girls, so it doesn’t follow you home.

Me first!

Seems there's no way to make this irritation go away, which makes it a doubly annoying. Telemarketers. Need I say more? I understand and respect that they're doing their job, but my question is this: why, why, why must the calls come at dinner time? I'm expecting friends to phone in the early evening, or my mom, so I can't ignore the ringing. It feels like I spent too much time last nite feeling both aggravated about the telemarketers and disappointed the calls weren't the ones I was expecting! Silly, I know, but I just want some peace & privacy in that way at home!!! Ahhh, much better!

I can't get over the fact that a girl who used to date my fiance is now seriously dating/living with his identical twin brother. My fiance and his brother never really got along, but it's causing issues with planning the wedding, his family etc. Not to mention, my friends had "issues" with her before this even happened (before I knew them). How can I friggin get over it? I have support from friends, my fiance and my family......but others have the mentality of "the past is the past." The whole thing is downright uncomfortable.

I am supposed to go to a birthday dinner tonight for a friend and I really don't want to go. We used to be very close and even ended up being roommates. She moved out last August and has pretty much found a new group of friends and we only see eachother once every couple of months. I am tired and just don't feel like going out tonight to hang with her "new friends".

Venting Machine- I'm sad this week. Did something completely out of my character and I'm ashamed. I totally clicked with this guy and we wound up hooking up, no sex but I got caught up in the moment and went with it. I rarely find a guy I really like off the bat but now I feel like I ruined his perception of me.

I know how everyone says "Mother Knows Best" But sometimes, i just wish my mom wouldn't have to put her two cent into everything that goes on in my life. And sometimes she adds to the stress in my life and puts me down. I'm so tired of it, sometimes i believe she's the reason why i have such low self esteem in my life. ****"Everything in life is only for now."-Avenue Q****

I totally agree cravinsugar. And automatically, all we eat is Krispy Kreme and McDonald's, right? I hate that. People don't understand that.

You are right to cravin. That is what makes Pop so neat. We all relate to each other based solely on our personalities.

I just want to say, I don't call skinny people annorexic unless they look unhealthy. And, i get all kinds of dirty looks and bad names because i am fat. So, i think that is one thing skinny and fat people can relate on. I think whether skinny or fat, people judge unfairly the person inside the skin. I for one am tired of eing judged unfairly. I am sure you are to beach barbie, (although I must admit, ,i would rather people think I am annorexic than hear what they say about my current size :-)) On another note. I have an idea. If EVERYONE got in the lane they needed to be in 2 miles BEFORE their exit, you wouldn't have to deal with me, not letting you over last minute cause you are trying to jump ahead and cut me off. Go ahead and swerve at me, honk, and flip me off...my finger is just as good as yours, and if i wasn't driving i would show you my fat white ass so you could kiss it! _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

BB, You are so so right. I am not skinny anymore, but that really used to bother me when I was. People would say "Are you anorexic?" right to my face. And t0x, I think every woman has to wake her damn husband up! WTF???

I'm really angry over the reverse discrimination against skinny people. People can say really ugly and downright hateful things about skinny people, without any backlash, at ALL!! BUT, if somebody calls a person FAT it's soooooooo WRONG!!! I don't call people fat nor, do I feel the need too. So, I don't understand why sooooo many people have to say such really horrible nasty things about skinny people. They are certainly not saying it out of concern so, why do they bother..just to show the world what a heartless *ss they are?!! Because, that's what I see. So, what the h*ll is this all about?!!! I do feel better. This venting machine is an excellent idea. I think I'll visit it daily..I might even come back tonight. I may have the same rants sometimes..to help me get it out of my system, again.
