What is the shitting point in having to go through and select what you actually want from a company's website, if you then have to go through the bloody talk feature and go through selecting every bloody thing again. It's sodding moronic.

Bloody credit card company sent out some of those stupid blank checks. Someone has got hold of one (them?) typed " & Jessica Perez" on the end of my name, and spent $406 at Office Depot with it.

Isn't there enough fraud without the banks creating more. Why the **** do they send these "promotional checks" out. Idiots.

Landlord has organized workmen to paint the outside of the house. As a result we are stuck in the house with as all the doors are open and the dog is terrified. The aircon can't cope as its 90' outside. Oh, and they've tripped the electrics.

Must be wanky AC if it can't cope with 90. What are you supposed to do when summer is here? If the doors are open you may as well turn the air off, you're just blowing money away.
How the hell does a painter trip the power by painting outside? Sounds like you've got some dodgy electrics. Reset the trip switch and if it trips out agaiin, call the landlord and tell him you're going to make the painters stop, and explain why. It really is that simple.
Its hard to believe that anyone is actually moronic enough to schedule outside painting work over the weekend, when everyone is likely to be home.

This house defines shit. 6 more f*&king days. I can't wait for the HOA to come around and complain about the unauthorized house colour change.

All of that is entirely sensible. Unfortunately though, our house is shit and the landlord is a [email protected]@t.

One of the reasons I thought no one ever took anything was they are paranoid about stuff being spiked. I wanted to give out home made treats at Halloween but DH said it was a no- no after someone did spike stuff given to kids years ago. It was not a full packet so I am over it now
