  • Migraines! My idea of hell is an eternal migraine. Since I don't believe in hell, I can at least know there is a migraine free zone sometime.

    • Hey Paleobird and Saoirse, I didn't want to pull this thread off-track from griping, so I replied to you both in my journal over here:

      Now back to the griping, it is a new day after all:

      iOS 4.3 came out but it looks like they removed the multitouch gesture functions they had in the beta version. I am very pouty.

          LOL on your first gripe! A couple of my other favorites are "bare with me" and "for all intense & purposes". Oh, and agreeing with a statement with "Here, here!" - that one always tempts me to reply with "Where, where?"

          The second one is your fault for sleeping through that mind-reading class.

            Ha! Can't get back what you never had in the first place. Gettin' my healthy back though, and if that pisses him off, tough shit, deal with it!

              • Diffusion of responsibility - if it's everyone's problem, nobody steps up to take it on.

                In other words - when the office runs out of heating oil that no-one has ordered while I've been away, I'm not sharing my plug in radiator and/or knowledge of alternative water heating.

                • "Per say." Gah!!

                    Clearly you're meant to eat it a whole pound at a time.

                    • My personal favorite:
                      "Come to Jesus meeting" used in the workplace. They used that today. I generally don't care about religion, but it should have no place in the workplace (unless you work for a church or something overtly religious.) I would've told HR, but HR is the guy that said it.... yeah...

                          I'm sick of hearing about Charlie Sheen and the bubble-headed-twit, Lindsey Lohan. I like the alternate meaning of QFT that Metismomma provided earlier. They need to Q-F-T and go snort some more cocaine!! Loser-whiner-crybaby-crack-headed-jackasses.
                          I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.

                              To be fair, in a lot of cases that's a regional dialect.

                              Today has been a briliant case of "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing." My boss is being rather pedantic on things he knows very little about. It's actually kinda funny to ask questions and then watch him flounder.

                                Well that is interesting! I say "EGG-zit" and never thought anything of it. Maybe it is a regional thing - though, Kentucky isn't to far away from Ohio!
