  • I wear a 30D. I can order online or pay mnimum $60 at a little boutique shop in Midland. That's IT. So I go get sized at the boutique shop before I buy new bras, then order a slew and hope that at least 2 fit.

    • How about not getting my tax return until April 19th when I filed on on Feb14th due to a "computer glitch". THe kicker is that the computer glitched because I was trying make the first payment on my Homebuyer's Tax Credit. I was actually trying to pay them and my gratitude was me not getting what they owed me for 2 months. Sweet!

      • When you're asked to make an appointment to talk about Mrs X, you know there's nothing good that can come of this, but you don't actually know WHY you have to meet. It must be something awful, so I've had 24 hours of anxiety even though I know it's not going to be anything of great meaning to me personally. My gripe is about my own psyche - is it innate that some people can shrug this stuff off?

          I have 3 daughters and 2 are tweens and one about to become one. The tween years are pretty difficult and my good kid is slowly becoming the annoying kid that hates everything and rolls her eyes at me constantly. The oldest has kind of evened out even though she is ditzy. I can say that and she will agree with me. The middle one is now the difficult one at times.

          • Women's shirts aren't made for people with muscles (or at least not ones my shape). The shoulders are too narrow, the sleeves don't fit right, but the torso fits nicely; the alternative is something that fits the arms and shoulders but is baggy elsewhere. I'll have to start going to the tailor. I have a friend who is a designer, and I think I am going to have get her to do shirts for me.

            • Weekly scheduling meetings blow under a deadline. Especially when that deadline is already compromised by required training. It's not a hard deadline, but I'd like not to miss it...

                • People who get prissy about dogs. If you have a pet in your life there is going to be a degree of hair, dirt, and possibly slobber involved. Deal with it. It's not going to kill you. Besides, the Primal Wolf Cub and I are a package deal. Love me love my dog. Or get out of my house. Your choice.

                    You rule, sir/ma'am.

                    I think I'll use up a stored gripe to post two today-- Since going primal, I have way too much energy. I've walked upwards of 3 miles and want to go further. I've also run at least 400 yards.

                    Next off, I think I may be in a love triangle but I'm not sure. The uncertainty is what makes it hard to deal with.

                      Hmm, not sure I get this -- nobody who _has_ a dog (a "pet in your life") would be prissy about dogs, would they? So are you really talking to the people who associate with dog lovers? But in that case "If you have a pet in your life, deal with it" is really saying "if you know somebody who has a pet in your life"... maybe I'm overthinking this.

                      I will say though that if a dog owner can't teach their dog a modicum of manners or restrain the dog from jumping all over me, I reserve my right to feel prissy about it. My friend's dog knocked me over when I was pregnant after gouging big bleeding clawmarks in my legs and stomach, and they didn't bother stopping her till I was already down. Yeah, darn right I'll get out of their house. And not go back.

                        I have had dogs all my life...trained them, showed them and now just have them as family members. I am a HUGE dog person and I agree with you completely. I can`t stand ill mannered canines. I keep my house clean, but there will always be SOME dog hair floating around....I have a Golden Retriever and a Papillon. I think that`s the prissiness Paleo`s talking about...people who can`t handle dog hair or drool or whatever.

                          Some people just shouldn't have pets.. if they aren't going to train them properly!

                          • I should have added the disclaimer -- I have known and loved and lived with some really great, well-trained dogs and I never had a problem with them. But bad experiences with bad dog owners (NOT bad dogs, it's not their fault!) have left me pretty leery. I guess that's my gripe of the day.

                              I am talking about someone who is dating a person who has a dog (me). Totally agree about badly behaved dogs. I'm talking about getting peeved because there is a little dog fuzz on the carpet.

                              • Ah! Yeah, then definitely they have to make up their mind and either be cool with it, or be gone.
