DearSugar's Venting Machine: Sold Out

DearSugar's Venting Machine: Sold Out

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!

I had been looking forward to my Sunday night family dinner all week, I had even planned out my entire meal. As the waitress took our orders, I was utterly disappointed when she told me they had just "sold out" of the skirt steak I had been dreaming about all week!! Sold out at 7pm on a Sunday night? How can that happen? Although I ended up having a fabulous meal, I am going to be craving that skirt steak all day!

I know it is only Monday, but do any of you have anything that you want to get off your chest? If so, comment below!

ok, this is not really that bad, but i am just frustrated. i used to love the apartment i live in, and my roommates too (i live with my boyfriend and 3 roomies), but after 2 years, that feeling has def changed. while my apt is huge, and historic, so it's pretty unique, it's just been the most depressing place lately. it's so dark and cold (even when its hot out) and so expensive to heat and run. nothing really works properly, since it's so old and decrepit. and don't even get me started about our upstairs neighbor (let's call her CRAZY cat lady)who is so outrageous. i can't even begin to describe the things she's put us thru (like a plague of fleas. i mean thousands!!!!!). and one of my roomies is terrible. i didn't really like him to begin with, but we needed his money so there you have it. he's just so messy and never helps to clean or maintain the house..at all. ever. he's taken out the trash 2x in over a year. i feel so aggravated and depressed about living there. so i have discussed it w/ luvah boy and 2 of the roomies i want to take with us, and we have decided to move in a few months or so. but the job of finding a new place has fallen solely on me, and with a full time job and other obligations, i just don't have a lot of time. it's not fair! i know that i'm the one that feels the strongest but i could really use some help with this and no one is willing to even pitch in....ugh. i just don't see how my bf can be so apathetic when i am so depressed about the situation. wahhhhh no one cares. ok, i am starting to feel better now. thanks dearsugar!

I know this will sound whiney and pathetic but... i miss my boyfriend so much! he's been gone for three months and we have three more to wait until he comes back. every time i see a couple doing something together is like a slap in the face. i can't believe how strange it feels to have this huge chunk of me missing. we do talk everyday for a minimum of two hours but it's still insane when u think that we haven't touched or smelled or felt each other for over three months now. goddddddd! im horribly frustrated.

I want to vent about Sprint. They have the WORST telephone customer service on the planet. You can't ever reach a live person in under 20 minutes. Today I was on hold for 'an estimated 20-27 minutes' just to give them a change of address.

Ms_Mags-I could not agree with you more. I have nothing to vent about except for the fact that May (AKA the month I am done with community college) is approaching at warp speed and I do NOT like it at all. K, back to term paper #3....

I just don't understand why yhte city government thinks it is okay to run 4-car metro trains during rush hour. At 8:30 I had to stand all the way to work...on the way, I am the second friggin stop...because they run 4 car trains and not as often as they should. I don't like starting out my day with a tired back and sore feet. :-( _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

I just want to say that this idea is awesome. I don't really have anything to vent about. I'm just wanting my semester to be over because I'm getting burned out from all the assignments due in such a short amount of time.

Yeah, he's fixed. I didn't even know fixed cats could still spray! We don't have any carpet in our house thankfully, so it's not as bad as it could be (not as hard to clean) and isn't absorbed into anything - it doesn't smell like the usual punguant cat urine. I've read when cleaning not to use anything that has amonia in it so I've been using bleach. I also got some litter box herbie stuff (they say cats like natural scents) to lure him to use the box, but alas, it's not working either. :( Thanks for your sympathy and the pointer.

maybe this is me just being a brat, but....dh and I belong to a private golf club. We play so much, we wanted freedom to be able to walk on the course without a tee time and be able to play and play quickly. Our club has started to allow the public to play while still claiming to be a private club. It took us almsot 3 hours to play 9 holes (it normally takes us that long to finish 18). This, plus, we went in Saturday before playing another 9 holes, to get lunch. they had NO food. Seriously, on a beautiful saturday afternoon, you are going to hve no food? No wonder they have lost so many members!!...ok i seriously sound like a brat in this, but it just bugs me

lemuse - I so feel for you! Is your cat fixed? If not, it might be something to consider. My Mom kept my sister's cat after she moved out of state & he did the same thing. She got him neutered and, although it took a while, he stopped spraying. On another note, there's this spray called Nature's Miracle that you can get at the pet store. It's really good for getting rid of the smell. I was at my daughter's soccer game & some lady tried to take my parking space. I was sitting waiting for the space and as the guy pulled out, she started to pull in. Talk about being pissed off! I'm somewhat ashamed to admit that I had a hissy fit, but the lot was packed & I was sitting waiting for the space when she pulled up from the opposite direction. Needless to say, I got the space.

My mom's friend stayed ove about 3 weeks ago for a week and she brought her dog along. Well, once she left we noticed that our male feline is starting to do some unappropriate things (spraying), we're pretty sure he's marking things because her dog was here. We took him to the vet to make sure it wasn't a urinary infection, so after a very expensive visit, I gave him antibiotics for 2 weeks, and he's still doing marking, so we know it's not THAT. Strange thing is, the lady who stayed with us had to put her daughter's male cat down for that very same thing. I don't know what to do, my cat has been with me for 8 years and I don't want to have to put him down! I'm just very very upset with my mom's friend... I know it's not like she meant for this to happen, but she should have made a better judgement being that she's had to go through this! UGH!!
