We just get to complain about life? Hell yes.

I go to a military college (enlistment was my choice, college was my parents', so we kinda compromised) so you can argue that I knew what I was getting myself into and may not have a right to harp about all this. In this college I cannot refer to myself as I, my friends as they, or ourselves as we. We are now "this recruit" or "these recruits" or "that recruit's M14". We cannot talk outside or across halls or in the mess hall. When sitting we must be upright on the front six inches of our chairs. I wake up at 0430 every morning for physical training, which sucks because I absolutely hate mornings. We have to stare straight ahead whenever not in our rooms or an academic building, they call it being "locked on". We have to greet officers whenever we pass them, but we can't move our heads or eyes to look at their rank so it SUCKS when we pass one without greeting and get reamed out to no end.

Everywhere we walk has to be in the gutter, roads are a privilege. We can only move in straight lines, turning only at 90 degree angles, it's called "squaring", and it sucks and takes forever to get anywhere. Despite that little tidbit, God forbid you show up at any time other than five minutes early to anything. We cannot use facebook, myspace, skype, AIM, or any instant messaging system. Cell phones are prohibited, but we are allowed a single ten-minute phone call home each week. We cannot nap during the day in our rooms, and they have to be pristine each morning for inspection which is ridiculous because they'll just conjure dust out of nowhere to yell at us about even if we dusted that desk like literally two minutes before they came in. There is a rule about this place they've never mentioned but one I've created and believe is, for the most part, true: Recruits can do nothing right.

I don't usually like complaining, but I have to admit that felt good.

Enlistment might not have been the answer. You might have tried ROTC or something so you can be an officer. I'm sorry to hear about your mornings, I'm basically the same. You should maybe try to get to know your officers so that when passing them you could recognize them. That's what I do. I'm sorry to hear of your predicament. Good luck with college.

I agree with you two, it's just insane how early they start marketing holidays.  I work in a grocery store right now, and they had Halloween decorations up over 2 weeks ago, and i though THAT was early.......  so trying to cash in on Christmas NOW is just insane.

Re: Anger management thread

"And then the music that plays at work, around Christmastime all the songs repeat at least four times a day. Tell me that wouldn't make you hate christmas music."

I already do. Except for some songs, Christmas has the WROST songs. Really bad. Like, "what were they THINKING when they wrote this?!" bad. Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer bad (by the way, how in the world did a song THAT bad be made into a half hour special? o_O).

" I work in a grocery store right now, and they had Halloween decorations up over 2 weeks ago, and i though THAT was early.......  so trying to cash in on Christmas NOW is just insane."

At least thats the equivilant of the Christmas stuff start to appear in mid November as a pre-Thanksgiving build up. I can deal with that better then seeing the first corner of the store dedicated to Christmas. And the Halloween stuff isn't full blown out yet! And I really like Halloween too. Candy like Easter, but more of it, and its more interisting to get it. Easter would be the worlds boringest holiday if it wasn't for the candy. Plus you get to dress up, and not in fancy clothes like Easter.

"Someone in my study hall broke a calculator, se we can't talk in there at all for the rest of the year."

You think thats bad? Some idiot at my old high school got mad and threw a chair through a window. The librarys solution was to close the library during lunch for almost 2 months (which was just about the entire rest of the year). The next year, it was almost never opened during lunch. Which was stupid because in the past, they only closed it on Wednesdays due to teacher meetings in there after school (which I never even understood THAT). So their solution was, rather then make sure people didn't throw temper tantrums, was to just not deal with any potential problem at all. Which made checking out/returning books a MAJOR pain. Not to mention the guy librarian was sexist (but thats a story for another day).

Re: Anger management thread

I hate it when stores push any time of year 6 months before it is even here. Like RIGHT after I got out of school in the summer. A week after school ended for me they were already pushing back to school supplies! I hate it! They rush every season and if you don't buy it then when they FIRST put it out, when that time of year then comes out, there is nothing left to buy cause they  have moved onto the next holiday or whatever.

Actually, I'm a dairy manager, and I ordered in our first egg nog for Thursday. I've already sold over a case. Two other stores had their egg nog in on Tuesday. And it's not just the Pumpkin Spice, it's the regular too.

This used to very much annoy me when I was at school but now I have younglings I understand. They are not advertising to annoy but for the parents who need to get the stuff in ready.

I do not like early Christmas advertising. There is too much pressure for one day of the year.

I hope your situation gets sorted out soon.

No job -yet-, also, there's a little mistake in the first resumes I sent, so, 50 companies have typos about me; table-top might stop coz we're not enough ppl; and I'm starting the fun part of the month. Today (thursday) really sucked, lol.

Re: Anger management thread

Don't know much about american schools either, our system up here is different.

How is it when you are homeschooled? Do you still have to do it early in the morning? Get the same kind of strict schedule and all that? I've always wondered what you learn when it is not in a public school. There's much less wasted time I bet, since the teacher doesn't have to waste time on classroom clowns and the likes.

Re: Anger management thread

yeah board of education is most likely what karson meant, probably budget cuts or something.
