You know how you're all ready to get sympathy with your sob story, only to find out somebody's got an even better one? I hate that.

Well, I had the WORST WEEKEND EVER (or so I was planning to embellish it), part of which was spent trying to find the leak in my roof. I only get a full weekend off once every six weeks, so that's not how I wanted to spend it, but hey -- it stopped raining, and who knows for how long? We got called to a house fire Friday, Saturday I was on the roof, yada yada *sob* yada, kids left to do their own thing Saturday night instead of going to the movies with me, yada yada I'm such a sad sack yada, mowed the overgrown lawn but the mower's acting up, yada. Then I get called to go into work early Sunday, thus ending my rotten weekend but giving me another thing to bitch about.

I walk into work, where they're right in the middle of a murder investigation; this gal walked into the lobby and announced she'd just killed her boyfriend. With a hammer. Apparently there might be some connection to a car that was torched. I might add that I was just bragging to a friend in England about how relatively low our crime rate is.

So not only a rotten weekend, but also a good sob story shot right in the ass. I mean, hey -- nobody beat *me* to death with a hammer. So, I have a sinus headache? So what! There are kids starving in Africa.

Okay, I'm done now. I'm going to go back to acting cheerful; just needed to vent without taking a tool to anyone.

If it'll make you feel better, I could totally beat you with a hammer?

That's okay though...doesn't matter if there will always be people who are "worse off" than you, everyone is entitled to a little bit of bitching time. And by the sounds of your weekend, I'd be horrible grumpy as well.

If you had a hammer ...
I think that would help you more than it would help me ...

Yeah, the venting was needed. It wasn't one thing so much as the combination that started getting to me ...
Also -- and I don't know how this is going to sound -- I tend to act all smiley and try to get people to laugh even when I'm in a crappy mood, under the theory that when you laugh the world laughs with you, and when you cry you can hear a pin drop.

I suppose that kind of thing would start to build up, after awhile.
