Is something or someone pissing you off? Unload your frustration here.

I work at a well known warehouse club. I've been with the company for the better part of 15 years now and make a pretty good living. I work third shift driving a forklift stocking general merchandise and fill in also do receiving from time to time.
Needless to say when hanging products 15 feet in the reserve steel Safety is always the first priority. A couple days ago I was dropping pallets to be stocked for the guy working the department with me and found a pallet of cutlery in the top steel that looked like a bomb went off under it. It's a Damn miracle it didn't fall out of the rack and kill someone.
Looking at the tag on it I could tell it was received by the first shift dock crew and therefore hung by the reciving team leader. Mistakes happen but hanging an 900 lb pallet 15 feet up above where people shop and work is absolutely unacceptable and there is no way to have not known it was that badly damaged.

You know what grinds my gears? Part 1: Having to purchase things that I know I will never use. How? Because I have literally NEVER thought "man, I'm glad I have $300 hanging in the closet because I know if I ever wore it it would probably shred to bits in milisecond of actual use. Sure am glad I didn't use that money to buy things that I will use daily to keep me safe!" Part 2: those in positions to use the passing of a friend as an excuse to punish those who didn't follow part 1.

I hate it when a company will spend tons of money to do something the wrong way or buy some needless crap but when it comes down to something useful, they are the biggest tightwads on the planet. Welcome to my every day.

OH! Good thread.

I hate almost everything... everyday... including you!

 

That's not entirely true.. but I work with a woman that I despise more then Obama, and you probably didn't think that was possible.

 

She arrives at work at 0730 (her scheduled time) and starts cooking breakfast.  No, not pop-tarts or a granola bar.  Bacon, eggs (usually scrambled), sausage, hash browns on this electric skillet and toaster oven.  Her manager has told her probably 5 times to stop cooking breakfast but he doesn't arrive until 0830 and by then it's all cleaned up.  She then proceeds to sit on her fat disgusting hypocrite ass at about 0800 to wrap up her breakfast and start surfing.  

Sometime around 1030-1100 she takes a company vehicle out to do some grocery shopping, shoe shopping or garage sale hopping... returns from her "lunch" as she calls it about 1300 to sit in front of her computer and start surfing again.

Since our manager is too trusting he assumes she wouldn't be lying to him when she says she had to run out for a second to run an errand.

 

All the while going on about how "we intelligent people are being over run by"... in her words "Idocracy" because I talked her into watching the movie and she is convinced that is the direction the world is taking and while I don't totally disagree she isn't smart enough to figure out that I was referring to her.

 

During that time she finds hours to thump on her bible and tell me how I'm a heathen for looking at other women while I have a wife at home and how I will burn in hell because I don't believe yet she plans every night to hit the bar and get laid but fails miserably, thankfully because she is so f'd in the head that if someone were foolish enough to sleep with her she would stalk him until the day he dies.

 

I often have dreams that I take over this crap-cake of a company and the first thing I do is fire her in the all employee meeting.

 

If she were the last woman on earth I wouldn't do her with YOUR wang.

 

 

 

HOLY SMOKES... I FEEL BETTER.

 

THANK YOU LEOSAVAGE!

Fuck school. Fuck it in its stupid fucking muppet mouth. I could be doing so many other things that would be so much more productive than sitting in a classroom quite literally doing absofuckinglutely nothing.

On the plus side, I am going on a date Sunday with a girl from this school that's pretty cute and has big ole boobies. So, something positive ao far out of it.

Fuck the VA. My school is demanding money this Friday and VA wont pay up until at least Monday. I now have to bash my head against the VA's retarded phone system and the university's registrar office to see if they can fix this shit. My phone calls today suggest that he school wont budge on the problem and VA office said its doubtful the VA can move any faster on processing the paperwork.

They live in my truck and only a small handful of people are allowed to even look at them.
Now back to the topic... Some ASSHOLE made goddamn french vanilla flavored coffee in the pot in our break room. Now the whole pot is contaminated. Good thing I had folgers singles in my truck bag.

While I admit, it does sound a bit stalker-ish... but she brings back evidence (again, because she is as dumb as a rock).  Bags and bags of clothes, shoes or garage sale goodies.

She has some bizzare love affair with me and insists on showing me everything... I hate her more than anything I've hated in a very long time.

... sadly its only moderately helped the situation.

 

 

People in general piss me right the fuck off.... it floors my mind how people can be so damned self absorbed and lack the ability to exercise BASIC HUMAN FUCKING DECENCY and have zero respect for anyone but themselves or whats going on on their fucking smartphone.

 

All the fucking asshole parents coming to pick up johnny and suzy band, cheer, football kids after football games , that clog up the parking lot waiting. Making it impossible for us "Crew dads" to get marching band tractor trailer parked and then have the nerve to very impolitely freak the fuck out when asked to move .....i almost met the hood of a car last Thursday night because of one this assclown who was texting while driving too fast through the damned parking lot (see the ^^ comment).  I felt a little satisfaction when I popped him in the face my Surefire light, the squinted puzzled look followed by a puckered face as I expressed my displeasure with almost being hit while he was using said phone, was priceless!

 

great thread by the way! i'm sure this wont be my last rant  :cool:

Soccer moms and teenage girls too busy texting have nearly plowed me down in broad daylight, and nowhere near sports fields either (i.e. grocery store parking lots, etc.). Texting drivers on the highway suck so much that I am seriously considering installing a PA system in my truck so I can inform them of the medical condition they are suffering from, cranial rectal inversion, or so I can just annoy the piss out of them with some purposely off-key singing.

Yup! I've thought about the same. Unless TOW missiles mounted to my truck suddenly become "ok" to own.

The painfully slow process of waiting during background checks! I just want to work already. Shit, I'll work for free until you clear me! 

 

And I really, really hate forgetting specific information from books I've recently read. Especially if someone brings up a topic I'm familiar with. Sometimes I get so excited, I read history books like dramas and enjoy the information as it comes. There's always that one thing you forget about it, but hey, no one is smart enough to remember every single detail from a dense 450+ page book about Imperial Japan (Max Hastings' Retribution: Battle for Japan 1944-45). 

 

Bubble guts! I'm eating the same thing as my girlfriend and all of a sudden I'm shitting brown water. I'm talking Mekong Delta syndrome. How can I even have enough energy from eating toast, bananas, and apple sauce? I might as well eat and MRE and plug my rectum up for a day or two.

This is just a pretty petty issue, and it's becoming a little humorous because I'm so beyond frustrated at it!

Headaches! What the hell man!?! For SIX MONTHS I've had a near non stop migraine. Total pounding, light/noise sensitive, Jesus H. Christ about the put a drill bit to my temple to relieve the pressure pain. All kinds of tests, but everything comes back normal.

My neurologist is stumped, she's tried all kinds of meds, some that have knocked me out of work for three days, others that put me in the ER with blood pressure of 235/98 (That was fun!) but nothing seems to change it! It's gotten to the point I actually went to flagstaff and had an "energy healing" done. Since then I've had another one, and am carrying "healing crystals" around. Yes, I am seriously at that point of trying ANYTHING.

It's probably stress related since no medication is helping, but man, this is pissing me the eff off!


(Side note, during the first "energy healing" I wasn't really into it. I couldn't turn my brain off and focus on what the lady was telling me to do. My mind was racing. You have to stay perfectly still, keep your eyes closed the entire time, and focus on the pain. I was too busy focusing on the pillow.

I was thinking about that non-stop. How old was it? How many heads have been on it? Do people bring their own pillows? Have I ever seen some hippy walking around with a pillow? All these thoughts were going through my head. After the session was over the lady says "I'd like to see you again, alone [it was two of us in this session] as I was having a hard time tuning into you. I kept getting something with "pillow" over and over."

That sort of sold me to the second, private session. It was just so random that I kept thinking of that, and she said that. Oh well.

So I get to work tonight and find out that I'm one of the 2 forklift operators working. 2 lift drivers to cover receiving and stocking. To give you some perspective on the level of suck this is we are supposed to have 6 drivers on the floor and 1 to 2 on the dock. Judging by the fact that when I was pulling up I couldn't see any light coming from the vendor door out back the dock is full which means that has to ran out and hung before whatever truck or trucks we get can be unloaded. This is going to be a long fucked up night.
