My gripe is that I couldn't concentrate in class whatsoever today, followed by my Good Thing of the Day...

Holy crap, I just plain refuse to have a daughter. I needed a shower as soon as I got home to wash that whole experience off of me.


Been there. I was 17 at the time, but still. She was in grade 8, I in grade 11.

When I tell the story, I paraphrase Homer Simpson: "For me, the 90s ended that day. In 2003." (the 90s represent my childhood, and that was when it was over).

Right? Ugh, wigged me out. I couldn't tell if it was me being a freak and not realizing how young she was or her looking old enough that I couldn't tell. Freaked me right out

LOL you don't have to worry about your sight failing, Caedus. There are a lot of girls out there today that looks much older than they really are. Makeup, high heels and short skirts are the cause of this. I know someone who's fifteen but she looks old enough to have a job of her own. Confused

Just wait til you meet me! I scheduled an appointment to get my makeup done for my college graduation pictures, but only specified it was for my graduation. When I arrived, the woman said, "Oh, is this my high school graduation appointment?" Neutral

I'm five years out of high school, and they still think I look 18. Sad

I had a similar experience way back in the day. Don't worry, you'll get the last laugh on that one. Trust me, Mara, one day you're going to love looking younger. Smile

If I shave my goatee I look 15, its ridiculous. I keep hearing that when I'm in my 30's I'll love it, but currently its difficult to deal with. I understand Mara's predicament.

Oh yeah it used to irritate the hell out of me too. However, it stopped irritating me awhile back. Wink

I had an email argument with a furniture company's customer service team.

Not really a gripe, was actually quite fun.

Oh man this is irritating me so much. My cable box remote. It's so annoyingly picky about where you aim it. You have to get it just right.

I know, I know. Majorly lazy gripe here. Very Happy

I think it might be time for a new remote. Or a new TV.

The TV has nothing to do with it. My TV remote works fine on the TV. It's the cable box remote working -- or not -- on the cable box.

A new TV's always nice though.

I see, maybe the batteries are low? Who am I kidding? I have no idea.

Lol, I'm way ahead of you on the batteries. Already tried that. Nope, it's just you have to be really precise about pointing that stupid remote.

I agree a new TV would be great. Alas, it's not in the budget and now Xmas is coming up sooner than I'm prepared for.

I'm like that way too. I'm in my late 20s and still get carded, frequently mistaken for being the youngest sister.

I have a well documented weakness for facial hair. Don't shave your goatee again. Not because you'll look young, but because goatees are awesome. Very Happy
