DearSugar's Venting Machine: Week of March 19th

DearSugar's Venting Machine: Week of March 19th

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!

Ack. Usually casual carpool is such an easy and interesting way to get to work. Usually. When it goes wrong, it really goes wrong. This morning the woman driving had the heat on full blast (it isn't cold, mind you). She explained to the three of us that she had it on so her hair would dry faster. I cracked the back window a little so I could breathe. A few seconds later, she used her button to roll it back up. I told her I'd prefer to keep it down a bit since she needed the heat on and she said no, because she could feel the cold air on her neck. I could actually see sweat beads on the poor guy in the front seat, taking the brunt of the blower. This on top of the fact that she had the radio blaring and laughed loudly at every motorist we passed who'd been pulled over by a cop (oddly, that was a total of four cars this morning). Tres thoughtless! Anyway, I feel like a plate of leftovers that's been microwaved on high for 25 minutes. And before 9:00 in the morning!

Controlledspin - My excessive heat story above was on my way home from the bowling alley (I was in a bowling league). What is it with bowling and hell fire in the car on the commute?

ugh my roommate's girlfriend left me the parting gift of a nasty cold before she left my home and i've been fighting it off all week. it's finally hit full force today, and i am miserable. i took some daytime (read: non-drowsy)cold medicine and i can barely keep my eyes open with an hour left in the office and an hour's commute home still ahead of me. not only am i falling asleep at my post, but it's really doing nothing for my cough and sniffles. and it's only wednesday. oh well it can't last forever and at least tomorrow's payday.

My boss is nagging at me to get off the internet (yeah right) over and over and he's on a personal call for the past 45 minutes and he's surfing the internet looking for MOTORCYCLES!! I guess thats why hes the boss though, even though I run his company everyday!! And you think I could afford a motorcycle if I wanted one?!?!

the guy who sits next to me at work smokes a pack a day and it wafts over here every time he goes out for a cig. it seriously makes me nauseous and frustrates me because i don't think my boss has another desk for me to work at if i asked to be moved. *sighs*

If it makes you feel any better, DearSugar, I once rode with someone to a bowling league (that I was bullied into anyhow), and she always had the heat on full blast, which came out from a vent near the floor. One week, I thought I smelled something, and it turns out that it was so hot that the sole of my boot was SOFT and when I touched it, my finger pushed into the rubber sole and left a mark there! I finally had enough and said "TURN OFF THE HEAT, MY FOOT IS ON FIRE!" LOL

Dear - When I was a kid my brother's best friend's dad took my brother and I home one time. The dad wore a t-shirt in the middle of winter and then blasted the heat on the drive. We were all wearing appropriate winter gear and dying. My eyes were tearing up from how hot it was and I could hardly breathe. It was ridiculous! Well, today I went searching for new clothes to wear on my Vegas vacation in April. I couldn't find anything and what I did find was too small for me. I also realized I have moved up a size. I visited my parents and weighed myself at their house and I am the heaviest I have ever been. It sucks! Looks like time to start dieting and exercising.
