#49 - I need more time to stay at home

By, Jason

This thing happen after I moved in to my new house, I think I need more time to spend for my lovely new house. After I moved into my new house for a month, and I am still have no more time to stay at home and spend more time with my new house. What a world!!

Working hours is the most longest time that take me out from my house and I don’t even have chance to enjoy what I have bought to my new house. When I reach home, it’s already sleeping time.

Weekends were mess up with friend’s celebration event like birthday, weddings. And this weekend also the same as I need to attend my friend's house warming. Oh gosh!!! I need more time to stay at my house and I really truly need more time!!

#48 - Toys-r-NOT-us

By, SoccerMom

Okay can someone please tell me at what point it became okay for stores to treat customers like crap, especially here in Canada? As of late I have found the level of customer service has bottomed out and the stores and store managers could care less.

I am looking for the newest item for the Wii called Wii Fit. So being the resourceful SoccerMom I am, I go on-line to see the who’s, what’s, where’s and how much’s it’s going to be. I notice that Future Shop and Best Buy are out of stock, so I head over to and they are showing “Stock in Store.” I’m now thinking ~ Wahoo!! I am going to be fit for the summer and I won’t have to see the inside of the Pink-eye gym.

But wait…
Before you think way-to-go SoccerMom, I of course had issues or I would be playing and not posting.

This morning I called the 1-800-Toys-r-us line to see if the stores did in-fact have the units and why I could not order it on-line. The lady assured me that it was in the store and that if I headed over that it would not be a problem. So I jump in the car and I am driving and thinking I am on my way to being a Hot SoccerMom and not because someone turned up the pre-mena-temp.

Once I get to the store I go to the Electronics department and I don’t see the units. So I track-down a nice yet young clerk and ask her "Where is my new fitness routine??" She says “I don’t know where they are, let me check and see if we have them in stock.” She checks and say "the computer says we have 18 let me call the manager and see where they are.” At that point I was getting all giddy and said "sure."

Oh now by this point you know this is not going to go well, don’t you??

So the Store Manager tells her to tell me that they don’t have them in stock and they are not getting them until later and so they won’t be available until tomorrow. Okay so I just drove from Stoney Creek with gas at $1.27 per litre to be told by this manager No-fit-for-you??!!

That my friend did not sit well with me, so I call the 1-800-Toy-r-us line again and I am telling the very nice lady my saga and she was very apologetic and sympathetic in not understanding why be-otch will not sell me a friggen fit. It wasn’t like I was asking for a discount, Wii just want to play. She was as helpful as she could be (by the way she was in the USA) and asked me if I minded calling the Head-Office location for assistance. It this point I am all about calling, so I do just that and the lady tells me that it would be best if I called the Canadian Corp Office that has a Customer Service support, again I am thinking what they heck it’s only one more call ~ And then I get Jo-Ann on the line.

My friends let me tell you Jo-Ann gave me that same Canadian customer service they think we Canadians will tolerate and think we deserve and have come to expect!

She lied to me and said just because the computer said the stock was there doesn’t mean it is/was actually there… wha-wha-what??
Okay I was born at night but it wasn’t last night, Jo-Ann! I work for a Manufacturer and I get how stock/stock levels etc… work. Duh…

Oh I’d love to stay and whine at you but I must go and skower the pages of in the hopes of finding someone who is reasonable and will not rip me off.
Wish me luck…

#46 - Oh My Shoulder!

By, Osindak

If there is one thing that bugs me most of the time, then that would be my left shoulder.

I've been having this aching left shoulder for the past few years. The intensity of pain varies, sometimes negligible but there are times I could really feel something poking the inner part of my shoulder. I've gone for medical check-up and the kind doctor suggested I should do further tests (but I haven't done so! ha! so terrible (or lazy!) of me, huh?). Hubby has also taken me to see the Chinese doctor and he tried to 'fix' the problem too, but short lived. The kind makcik has also massaged the shoulder a few times and I must say the pain is not that bad anymore, but still... It's still lurking there...

Too burdened, perhaps? *grin* Or too much blogging? LOL

Oh well.. I should be grateful I still have functioning shoulders! *grin* A shoulder to cry on, a shoulder for my kids to bermanja, and so on.. *smiles*

I'd just have to do more from now on lah - exercise my shoulders often and go for regular massages! *wink*

#45 - i've got a tag

By, glad to be here

I’m getting all of these from Osindak (Thank you! :D)

This specially to me and some others.

and these two for every bloggers out there

Plus, for me to take up this challenge:

After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about. If you would like to accept the challenge, please follow the appropriate link and do so: “Are You Grateful?“, “Complain Complain Complain.”

Details on how to take up the challenge are available on the two links above.

I guess I can do both, complaining and yet still be grateful. As usual, am complaining that the network here are too slow but I’m still grateful that I’ve internet access at this moment. I’m complaining that my boys whine too much, but I’m grateful that at least they let me know what they wanted. I’m complaining that our house is way too old to live in, but I’m grateful that at least I’ve a roof over my head. Yup, and many more. Actually there is nothing to complaint about really. Oh one last thing, I’m complaining that our politics sucks, but at least I’m a Malaysian.

#43 - I Need Coffee!

By, Ratu Syura

OMG! I think my head is seriously about to explode!!! I don't think I can take this kinda pressure anymore! With practically 3 more days left for finals, term papers to pass up tomorrow, and an SS opportunity to finish up in 12 hours, and not to mention other paid assignments from other 'bosses' I gotta get done soon, I seriously just feel like giving up and put on my dancing shoes and head over to Heritage Row!! Seriously!!

And if that didn't make things bad enough, what makes things even worse is that I can't log on to Facebook because of some sorta server problem! Urghh.. My fluff pet, Mumbo is the only thing that calms me down during these panic attacks! Oh! And worst of all... I'm out of coffeeee!! tension

Breathe Syura, breatheee.... *Heee Heee Hoooo... Heee Heee Hooo...* That's supposed to work on pregnant women but from these raging hormones I'm feeling right now, I suppose it would work... It MUST work!!

Since this post is officially a complaint, I might as well have it integrated (omg! i used the word integrated!! i think this is the effect of too many management term papers rubbing on me!!)

#42 - No Unpretty Cuts Please!

By, Rozella

I need a haircut! Real badly! It's way overdue. My hair is weighing me down and I seriously am starting to look like this:

My problem is, I don't know where to cut my hair in KK. I haven't had much luck with any of the hairdressers here. They either make you look exactly the way you did when first came in (minus a couple of inches) or they make you look like a Japanese anime character. I am not fond of that. Thank you very much.

I want a serious makeover like the guys who were on Oprah's Great American Haircut, but how? Any good suggestions? Somebody? Anybody?

Please don't make me get out my TLC album and start cranking up Unpretty! We've had enough of that in high school, right Shem? Hahaha

#41 - A problem is only a problem and all problems have solutions

By, SoccerMom

Like any other human being, I, too, can exhaust hours of my life with personal complaints. Life doesn't go my way ALL the time yet, I also know that the more I complain, the worse things become. Overall, the negative energy accrued from complaining ends up effecting my life in many aspects. I choose to not become the problem. Instead, I become a part of the solution to the problem instead of feeding the problem by adding to it.

What I have learned in my experience is that a problem is only a problem and that all problems have solutions. That is, if one is looking for a solution. Moreover, as an intelligent being, it is my job to work out the solution. I can do that. I have years of experience. The hardest part of any problem is realizing that there is a problem. Additionally, the solution is generally an easy task. On the other hand, there are those who seem to find comforting solace living in their problem(s). They don't need to, but that's their lesson. I've paid my dues as a complaining member and then some. Gratefully enough, I've learned to "just do it" then get over it. Patience and perseverance are keys used when working out solutions. Afterall, "Rome wasn't built in a day."


My complaint is against those who make complaining a career. They zap my energy whenever I allow them to do so. Identifying the problem is first rate. Moreover, in order to achieve and maintain happiness we need to actively do two things:

1.Complain then let it go. (Dump the baggage. It functions only as roadblocks to happiness.)

2. Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.) After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or have something to complain about.
