Thank you pooflady, reddesertbrat, dontwantaname, josephus, and no1.
What was discovered by writing everything down on paper instead of the computer is-
Pinpointing the rage-
1. It's not my former company. I still like them and some of the people working there. Although they have laid off hundreds of people, it's a business that is desperately trying to stay afloat.
2. It's not me. I've been job hunting, sent resumes, had interviews, done everything that one does when looking for work. Have always been resilient, and no matter what happens, I'll bounce back.
3. Loss of independence. YES! This is what is causing the rage. The less said about it, the better for now. I'll keep working on it.
Thanks again to all who replied!

You're doing quite well to reach these conclusions so quickly. A former employer once told me that a company has a right to do what it takes to stay in business. This often means letting people go unfortunately. You are right that it isn't you. Best of luck to you in finding a new job. With that great attitude, you have a lot to offer!

What she said.
(But I sure wish I knew what he meant by "loss of independence.")



When I was a kid I wanted to be older, this CRAP is NOT what I expected.

Having to ask for help either from family/friends or perhaps unemployment, I assume.

Hi Dname, quite a lot for a bloke to go through. Many in the same boat, but when it's actually you, it feels very lonely.

Hi everyone.
Haven't been lurking for awhile. Just had to give Faughty a way to vent. You guys in these halls can really make a difference to ppl who are hurting.

Yes, I figured that out in grade school. A small % of unemployment is 100% when it is your family.

People who don't clean the ice off the top of their cars so it flies off and hits yours on the highway.

I'll add to that people who don't clear their windows except a peep hole out the front, so they can't see anything around them!

I like to hate sometimes. Here's 3:
1. "Cash for Gold" commercials.
2. Wet shoes on my plastic carpet protector.
3. Jon and kate plus 8.

Wish I could take credit for that...

Other hateful things:
1) Snow that is too cold to pack
2) Snow that is really just white fluffy shards of ice
3) Snow that is mixed with mud or decomposing leaves
4) Black ice on sidewalk outside of my door due to dripping eaves
5) Black ice that somehow always forms right next to my car door
6) Ice that falls off of tree limbs onto my head
7) Lack of ice in the icebox.
8) Generally, the weather where I am where it seems it's below 25 degrees from November to April. Except those days it's 50 and rainy, then freezes.

At least being on TV has made them dress the girls better.
The boys all got kakkis and polo shirts.
The girls all had these totally wacked out dresses, that were never a style in any age.
Religious Jews and Muslim women cover themselves but don't look like freaks.
Since the regular TV show the girls at least have somewhat normal clothing.
Although the only time I saw the show it was about the oldest boy dating and not even kissing until marriage!
Wonderstew?
He was serious about his first kiss on his wedding day? I never heard of that. Ever.

OK, they annoy me. Don't actually hate them. Saw a special on them once and they aren't as totally wacko as you would think.

The women that had the 8 babies, who has 5 more under the age of 7 at home and has never been married....her I might hate.
They just said she is on disability! Has been for years.

Friends of mine in college waited until their wedding day before their first kiss on the mouth. They pecked on cheeks and foreheads all the time, but the first mouth kiss was after the minister said "you may kiss her."

That girl almost passed out as she swooned. It was really neat for all of us in the crowd, and I think many of us secretly wished we had done that before we got married...

I've had several friends wait for the first kiss with each other as well. There is a range. Some people are astonished at waiting to kiss and yet it is equally as weird to wait to sleep together or even waiting to live together.

Aha! In keeping with the spirit of this thread, I really hate how hindsight is 20/20 and we so frequently wish we had done things differently at the time and we can't go back and do anything about it!

I hate that even with the philosophy of having no regrets, I still have regrets for stuff that happened.

Wet shoes are suppose to be on the carpet protector. That is one of the things it is protecting the carpet from.

What you should mad at is wet shoes neatly placed on the carpet, right next to the plastic runner!

I can handle small doses of Jon and Kate. That type of show does make it seem like you can have mulitples and they can all be healthy.
Odds are very against that happening.
If Kate is having trouble handling them now, what would it be like if a few of them had serious health problems.

Ohhh, what about all those flip this house shows!
Made it look like it was easy and a huge money maker!
NOT!
