A thread to share your daily frustrations.<br><br>
The nurse called and I had to pick up my son today from school.<br><br>
They took his temperature and found it to be 100.1. School policy states that if the temp is over 100, the child can't attend school the next day.<br><br>
However, they took the temp right after recess.<br><br>
Anyone with a half a brain would realize that a kid running around outside during a mild day with his winter jacket on is going to have an elevated temperature.<br><br>
These schools are just scared to death of lawsuits.<br><br>
I don't know where my city gets these nurses.<br><br>
Last year a different nurse called and said that my son had strep throat. We made a doctor appointment the same day and he said that my son didn't have strep. Nothing more than a minor cold...

We already have a "stupid little gripes" and a "pet peeves" thread...do we really need a "venting" thread?

Well venting implies a release of built up tension whereas rant implies perpetual tension.

oh great there is this thread, i am about to explode! lol<br><br>
i have been dating that guy for only 2 months but we have been like best friends for 3 years or so. well i am not sure we are "made for each other" but i didn't think it was that horrible<br>
i was supposed to see him yesterday, but i have sleeping issues now so i overslept, until like 11pm and didn't go to him, obviously. today he messages me if i will come over this week. i said it won't work out because i have to work until midnight for the next 3 days. so he starts talking about how we should exercise, because of the cn tower stair climb and how he is sick of pushing me to do things with him and how he should get someone else to do it with him because it is for people he can rely on and bla blah blah.i don't even know what to say so i dont message back. soon a message comes that he will change his status on facebook to "single" so that he can have fun on weekend when he parties and that he hopes that my work works out (?, indication that he doesnt believe that i have to work?)<br>
I am really stunned. he changes his status on facebook, so i message him if he means that he breaks up with me and if he at least give me an explanation for his tantrum. he says that it is not a tantrum he just does it to be more "productive". and that it is just facebook i have a lot of male friends anyways. i say that he should be clear. obviously he doesnt start getting clearer. so i call him. he doesnt pick up<br>
i message him that when he wants to call me and tell me why he is suddenly pissed he should do it. he messages that he has been pissed for weeks but that he is good at managing his anger. i say that i wish he wasnt because at least i would know whats up. he says that it is very important to know how to manage yorself. so i just say he should call me instead of this. he said maybe later<br>
so he didnt call me for 3 hours<br>
whatever, if he needs time he should have it, but why did he have to start with it if he is not willing to have a normal conversation?<br>
and now i am all frustrated because i don't know what the hell is going on. he was mad at me for weeks apparently and i was clueless. i can just guess now<br>
i think he maybe mad because i stood him up yesterday. but i think this is not fair. its not my fault i have sleeping issues. and it is not like i ever did it before. i usually always come if i say. and its not like he never did it. he stood me up one saturday night because he was waiting for his ride and got so drunk that he passed out instead. i never heard an apology for it. and the saturday right after it he was supposed to come at 7 but kept on postponing it over and over so he ended up coming at 12:30! and when i wanted to talk about it he just told me that he has so much to do, which i understood<br>
and now i am the *******<br>
i also think that he may want to spend more time together. but he just until now had to wake up at 5am which made him go to bed at 10pm. so we couldnt do much during the week. i also have 2 night shifts a week, and i also like to have some evenings alone, and i have to see my parents. but i was still trying to see him at least twice a week. now i have to work whole day (12 hours) on weekends because the guy who has those shifts has a family emergency in his home country. and i a happy for extra money since we go to cuba next week<br>
and he seems t be jealous of my male friends for no reason. i noticed it but i always reassured him that nothing is happening. never hid when i met them etc. i have many male friends i can't and won't "break up" with them just because i am dating<br>
and maybe there is something i am not even suspicious of. it is frustrating that he does this. if he wants to break up we should break up. i am happy as a single. but why does it have to be in such a mean, nasty way? we have been friends forever, doesnt it matter? i thought us dating will only change that we will only sleep with each other. people are right when they say not to date your friends<br>
and i am worried about cuba. it is on my credit card and i am scared he will just leave me with two tickets a week before the vacation. i can't find anyone on sucha short notice so i will end up paying double for something that was supposed to be a cheap vacation<br><br>
and that cat that is supposed to be euthanized and ican't help. that frustrates me even more now. that poor thing

Venting implies a release of built up gas. Ranting is a complaint. Maybe they <i>are</i> the same!

Yes, I live in "The Sunshine State" and do enjoy it on my skin. But this hurts.<br><br>
I think I will go outside and enjoy some of it in a bit. With sunglasses!

It appears that we're both correct.<br><br><a href="http://www.thefreedictionary.com/vent" target="_blank">http://www.thefreedictionary.com/vent</a>

Rant is always a form of self expression, violent or extravagant. Vent has many meanings, which makes it somewhat wishy-washy. I guess it just depends on how ticked off you are.<br><br>
What are you and your son going to do tomorrow?

If he's feeling better, then probably sledding. If not, just chilling out in the house.

But you're implying that it's near the bottom!?<br><br><br>
I'm a Leo, but animal pictures on VB are so unoriginal...<br><br>
Instead I opted for the celestial representation of my zodiac. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Sorry to hear all that, Ira. He sounds immature.<br><br>
I wish I could come up with a good idea for the cat.

thanks mlp and Floridaisa<br><br>
after he didnt call for hours and told him that it is not fair to do this to me and not say why. and that if he plans to screw me over with cuba i will make him pay for both tickets. so he said that i should chill and its just facebook. and i said that him telling me that he was mad for so long and not telling me is not just facebook. so yeah he is jealous and mad that i am not fit enough for the climb, wtf. then he told me not to call him that he need some space to do stuff and i sghould call when i decide to come next. so i said that i wont run after him like an idiot and be treated like crap. we can meet wehen our flight goes and he can have all the space he wants before and after it. so yeah, as long as i dont pay double i can have my fun there as a single girl. i also worry he will give away the cat he adopted that followed me. he threatened to do it at our last fight. but he is not heartless to cats so i am not too worried he will just drop it out or put it to shelter, but who knows<br><br>
this thread is good to let it all out, better than telling mutual friends and we have lots of them! lol
