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.

Sometimes relativity is just evil. *g* If you had a bad weekend, you had a bad weekend - no better place to gripe about it than in your journal, among your friends.

(I know what you mean, though. If I complain about, for example, not being able to afford a new laptop computer, I feel compelled to add something like, "at least I have a roof over my head and food on the table - too many people don't". Which is certainly true, but doesn't make me wish any less for that laptop!)

the theory of relativity
Never was a more truthful thing said. If a guy's got a sore toe (mine just started yesterday), he should be able to vent about that a little, even if he knows someone who has no foot. But, just as you'd qualify your comment, I would tend to add that at least a good soak in epsom salts will make things better. :->

On a related note, I really wish I had a new laptop. But at least I have food on the table.
