I agree w/ Margaret. I stop in here periodically to skim and the "whining" tends to make me feel less alone in the world. Like this guy Justin for example says a lot of the stuff I would say and it helps to think I'm not a total alien after all. :)
> For some people, it's consoling to share. I'd say if the contents of such posts bothers you so much, then just ignore them and move on to the posts you prefer to read instead. No one's forcing you to rea all of them. I think that censoring other people is not only counter-productive, but it's also possible it can come back to haunt you.
> > You know, it is nothing personal, but this just seems like a lot of whining to me. I find it really hard to react with anything but annoyance to your posts. I'd love to offer some sort of positive advice or encouragement, but you aren't really asking for any.
> > Does it occur to you that most people aren't completely thrilled with their jobs? It is pretty much a condition of life, and you deal with it as a responsible adult. I myself went from a highly intellectually satisfying job in a major city to waitressing in a small resort town. No, I am not intellectually stimulated at work, but I am living in a beautiful place where my quality of life is so much better than when I lived in a city. It was a CHOICE I made, just as you have made choices in your life.
