    The Complaint Department

    Come here to lodge your complaints and air your grievances.

    I sent a client a report to review back in early February. They finally got around to replying last night and need significant changes...by Monday.

    Nevermind that I have six other reports due and several proposals.

    Even though I know of a trail system that's not on closed land -- we've had so much rain the past few days they won't be rideable for another week at best.

    A suspected Covid-19 male patient is lying in bed in the hospital, wearing an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose. A young student female nurse appears and gives him a partial sponge bath.
    "Nurse,"' he mumbles from behind the mask, "are my testicles black?"
    Embarrassed, the young nurse replies, "I don't know, Sir. I'm only here to wash your upper body and feet."
    He struggles to ask again, "Nurse, please check for me. Are my testicles black?"
    Concerned that he might elevate his blood pressure and heart rate from worrying about his testicles, she overcomes her embarrassment and
    pulls back the covers.
    She raises his gown, holds his manhood in one hand and his testicles gently in the other.
    She looks very closely and says, "There's nothing wrong with them, Sir. They look fine."
    The man slowly pulls off his oxygen mask, smiles at her, and says very slowly,
    "Thank you very much. That was wonderful. Now listen very,
    very, closely:
    "Are - my - test - results - back?"

    My father always did the "you want something to complain about? I'll give you something to complain about". So I took him up on it. He did not have anything worthwhile to complain about so I complained about is lack of things to complain about. he said "now go and think about what you did". I told him I didn't do anything. he told me "that's your problem". This was yesterday....

    Although it may be the most incompetent help that you'll ever receive.

    Had my 1st credit-card chargeback in 8 years, some rich doctor lied to his CC company, committed chargeback fraud. I'll file a criminal complaint but I pretty much have to sue him now.

    They would have gotten back to you much sooner if you didn't send in a mountain bike report.

    I decided I wasn't going to complain about work, considering I still have a job and all.
    Sometimes being grateful is better than hating things about one's job (which I love my job by the way).

    So fantastic that we have a thread in a mountain bike forum that starts out with a complaint about working.
    My friend lost both her jobs, maybe she can take over for you?

    Look I'm telling you right now what you have to do is text and email a picture of your nutsack to this person. It's not stupid it's a POWER MOVE. They think they can step all over you, but will they think that when they realize they also have to step over your nutsack? I rest my case.

    Some people do not know when to use "to" and when to use "too". Why can't we get a grammar nazi mod to go through and correct this crap so I don't have to read this mess?

    Thats the same with correcting a word.
    Too tired to care to correct the word to to too or too to to.
    See I am too lazy to put a ' in That's
    Of course I could put a , somewhere in Too tired sentence.

    I dont mind mistakes like that. Easy to read, easy to see the mistake. Its when you have to start to decipher the sentence, paragraph or entire post that you just skip it.
    I could also go back and type don't but my hands are on the keyboard, too lazy to use the arrow keys or mouse cursor to correct it. Key's to. Ut oh Key's too hehehehehe

    You ever seen grown men, spell really horribly, happens a lot in the online classifieds, lots of new comers and immgrants on there, see immigrant's. I remember I had a boss, multi-generations in the country, probably grade 9 eduction if that. Education, see missed the A too lazy. Trying to think of the words he messed up frequently. Be the words that sound the same, seen, scene, see's, saw, saws. Uneducated type spelling, they sound it all out in their head.

    This keyboard is old, so occasionally a key is pressed but not recognized. My boss would spell that word, rekignize. Uneducated type spelling.

    It is also common to see an entire long paragraph, which should probably be two paragraphs, without a single period, and maybe 2 commas.

    Somebody will ask to provide better punctuation only to have the original message defended by somebody else.

    We just need to stay stupid and learn to adapt to people that don't care.

    I get it, some people truly do not know though.
    I just do my best to make sense of it, just for the challenge.
    If I can't make sense of it very well I don't even bother responding-I just read and move along.

    If the post seems legit, I'll ask for clarification because I probably want to help.

    At my age, by the time they open the trails back up and I get back in shape, I'll be to old to ride anymore.

    Shame! The few remaining trails here are absolutely packed. A trail I like to ride because I rarely see people was apparently so full people were parking on the rural highway because the lots were full. Nope nope nope.

    You're doing it wrong. Here, let me help you:

    Why the hell does my complaint have to be compliant?

    I'm not at that point but I haven't mountain biked since early November and only got in 3 or 4 road bike rides in the same time frame due to recovering from a crash. I keep telling myself I need to get on the trainer, it's even set up in the basement, but I hate exercising indoors doing "pretend" activities. Not meaning this as an insult to those who ride indoors, just doesn't work for me.
