4. I can't properly vent in words the general malaise and stress I'm feeling.
Some things are best vented through destruction.

7. It was a dilema
I enjoyed making the plane work correctly and
I cried for those that felt it's wrath.

9. Ah, I was thinking more along the lines of practice.
Not actual living targets.

Sorry for my inconsiderateness. Not thinking there.

13. About twenty years after I separated form the Air Force I met a man that
came here as one of the boat people.

He was a skilled welder.

He told me the way to survive a B-52 attack was to be prone
but not on the ground.

He said if you held yourself above the ground, dog-like,
you had a much better chance.

10. There are non crappy motor vehicles?
Such as motor vehicles that don't suddenly need work around tax return season?

11. good point
they seem to need major repairs in direct proportion to what ever spare cash you have managed to accumulate - or just about as often - well beyond any positive balances. I need brakes and a muffler welded back on for starters on one vehicle.

12. You need a big roll of bubble wrap.
It's amazing how satisfying it can be to burst all those bubbles.

14. Not very often.
:P

I'm sorry you're that frustrated. :hug:

Hopefully the unhelpful situations will get resolved and the unhelpful people will get out of your way, and tomorrow will be better. :)
