    For all my birthday parties growing up, I'd invite the 1-3 friends I actually had at that point, a whole passel of cousins and relatives, and we'd go to either Spaghetti warehouse, a Mom and Pop Italian joint that doesn't exist anymore, Chunky Cheese, or go out in the backyard and have huge hunks of meat. we always had at least 3 people outside the immediate family show up, usually closer to 5-15.
    Now, I just tell folks "Meet me at this steakhouse" or "BYOB and we'll provide the grilled critter." I have more people show up now that I'm nowhere near any blood relatives than I ever did growing up.

    People who lack critical thinking skills. Ex:

    Random idiot: Cutting out an entire food group is unhealthy
    Me: Um, what about vegetarians? (Yes, this is called baiting and is illegal in some states)
    Random idiot: Oh, that's different, meat's bad for you.
    Me: OMG, sometimes it's just too easy...

    Please for the love of god people, learn to think outside the media sound bite!

    Oil companies claiming record profit for the quarter. WTF??? If oil was priced high enough per barrell for them to justify raising gas prices, why would they be getting record profits? I'm no expert on this, and there are probably more factors involved with how prices have risen, but still....no matter what extra costs to them might be incurred to justify raising gas prices it still doesn't excuse them getting such a profit from it!

    And yet again... the office is at 57 degrees. :-/

    It's 75 outside and we're all in here freezing and shivering.

    On a lighter gripey note, people if you drop something slippery on tile PICK IT THE F*&K UP! I was in Whole Foods gettin' my salad for lunch and slipped on some pineapple some asshat dropped and left. Down on my ass, hit my shoulder and the back of my head on the salad bar counter. Sheesh...

    I am SICK of all of these severe storms and tornado threats in the south!! Trees down everywhere. Roads flooded. Come on, already. I'm tired of hiding in the bathroom every few hours.
    Usually, I like the romantic side of thunderstorms, if ya know what I mean, but dang it all I WANT SOME SUNSHINE!!

    The verb "lose" (as in "to lose weight" (which is a separate gripe, as 99.9% of the time people really want to lose fat, not weight)).

    It's L-O-S-E, people. "Loose" is something else entirely.

    I'm horny and bleeding.
    My stomach is tying itself in knots and I'd feel too guilty after having a huge bar of chocolate to help it.
    I still can't get the red out of my hairand I don't want to cut it.
    AND. I got sunburn on my boobs while hiking.

    -sigh- This is not my week.

    oh my. I thought facing tornado after tornado, hail and trees falling over was bad. You made me feel so guilty for my gripe! I feel your pain, sister.
