Angry A Place To Vent

Thought it would be helpful (and kind of fun) to have a place where someone can vent about any topic that peeves them, not limited to the garden. No profanity, of course, or religion or politics. And no replies are necessary, the object being that merely blowing off steam will help.

My first entry does have to do with my garden and mail order suppliers. I ordered a fancy and expensive yellow tree peony a few years ago. It came and was the puniest thing I'd ever seen. I called the company, who told me to plant it and see how it did. Needless to say, it did not survive the winter. Another call did bring an immediate offer of another plant, which I accepted. After 4 weeks of nothing, I called and was told that they had no stock left of my plant. They sent me another yellow tree peony, one cheaper and not as pretty as mine, and a credit for the difference. Last year it gave me one lousy looking flower, This year it gave me one beautiful flower. However, apparently the non-tree peony root stock has also given me 5 buds that look like they will be white. I'm really pissed, and will call to complain again. Now I have a really weird looking tree and bush peony combo, and not something a breeder would like to achieve.

well it kinda lost steam because religion and politics are the only topics people want to fuss about..

ok what about this. you have only general knowledge about a certain engine. all of the dealerships in your area have gone out of business. no one will touch your car because they're not familiar with it. you take your car to a person who is supposed to be a specialist and he charges $1,300..you agree because after all he is a specialist and you shouldn't try to fix it yourself because if you aren't familiar with it. you may get hung up on something. after the third day you start questioning whether he is really as good as he says he is. you then find out he probably knows as much as you do. he ends up taking a week and two days and talks about charging you extra to repair things that are clearly his mistakes..

after everything is said and done you find out he wasnt the only person besides yourself who could have done the job, in fact there was a shop across town who would have done it for $800.00 and their shop has ase certified mechanics. they would have guaranteed a 2 day turn around.

Commercials that are inordinately louder than programming. Volume leveler doesn't really work, so you have to be quick with the remote. Soon I'll start DVR'ing everything so I can zap the commercials!

I agree with the commercials. Another thing I realized is that every channel I turn to seems to have commercials playing at the same time. I guess thats just a coincidence, but it still annoys me.
What annoys me even more is when professionals get plant names wrong. Mandevillas and allamandas arent the same plants and neither are bottle palms and spindle palms.

And Im tired of all this rain. April Showers bring may flowers, but my plants dont even have flowers anymore because the 4 inches or rain we got last week destroyed them all. And today felt like March.

Angry Re: A Place To Vent

I really need to vent...

Boy am I ever getting sick and tired of certain members who are hogging the picture bar...all day and everyday! It's discourteous to other members to not allow them to show their shots for awhile as well.

Some people who barely post pics ever, have their pictures rudely shuffled off within the hour (if they're lucky), only to be replaced by pics we see constantly! It's like picture diarrhea or something! I wish it would stop and that people could be more polite and thoughtful of others.

I know I like to load a lot of shots too, but it's only fair to let other people have a turn as well. Do onto others as you would have them do onto you.

There's a way to turn off the setting, so that a person can continue to load their shots into their album, but not display them on the bar. This would be an excellent idea for some members.

Thank you.

Joy Re: A Place To Vent

Im not use to doing this much,its like im complaining but I think this is so funny. I have a gardener that mows my lawns. They come on Mondays. I dont have much in the front of my house. Four queen palms and a few elephant ears. My grass usally gets real green fast I hate to brag but its actually greener than anyones on the street. What I do have in the front looks nice.Any way the people across the street from me cut there lawn like a golf course they started getting there lawn guy to come on Mondays too now. They cant stand my lawn looking so good ! She noticed my lawn was getting greener than theres I saw her out there starring at my lawn she ran in and got somthing and started spreading it all over her grass. LOL. They act like there trying to get the best lawn award. She always ask me what do you do to make your lawn look so good. I just smile. My brother says that im Mister green thumb ! When there trees start going dormant and the leaves start to fall they go out with long polls and start trying to make the leaves fall before they fall on there own its so funny. I guess I should be happy they do take care of there place. Any way I guess I can look at it as entertainment !

I just noticed this forum doesnt have a fights section. =D i had a special project one time and got stuck in a fights thread with another kid for 2 days! My project was late and the fights mod wouldnt even let us out when we agreed not to fight anymore. She said we had to have a positive solution. grrrrrrr!

This time wasnt as bad but i didnt get to go anywhere and had to stay home and just play video games. I dont get that i have to stay home all day!
But mom got me another banana tree to grow so that really helped. =D

Btw, sorry i had to remove some "thanks" but it wouldnt be right to thank posts if members are having issues with each other. Its not polite not to thank people for participating, but this time i think it is.

Can I vent now

My Trachi pulled and they are suposed to be hardy.

On Albums; I have posted one or two since joining and I believe they are a great Idea (albums). I also happen to like how the albums Images show in the bar on refresh. Does it really matter who they belong to?

This is a great place to be, I am thankful to banana.org for the space they allow us. Here we are not charged, are not limited on size.

Stop moaning, life is too short.

Peace.

I usually view the "new posts" when I access the site, that way if anyone has made a new post I'll see it regardless of post after post after post after post being made.

Regarding 'hogging' the picture bar, I usually upload the pics to my gallery where they can be viewed if desired. I really don't need them to be in the picture bar, but don't know how to avoid it. If I want them in a specific thread, I will put them there. I would prefer my photos don't show up in the picture bar at all, and if anyone wants to see 'em, go to my gallery.

(in other words... I don't see what you folks are complaining about can't we all just get along?)

The intent of my post was not to complain about someone who post to much.That's not my business is it. That's the job of the moderators .My suggestion to anyone who has a complaint, is to contact a moderator not someone who thinks they are.

I agree and i think everyone else does too. This thread should be about Real Life vents and NOT for vents about other members. Vents about other members can cause fights and then nobody else can use the thread. And the thread should be for everyone. =)

I always go to new posts because there are far too many to catch up with,

An outdoors vent:

Ummm..the weather makes me vent, it makes me very angry indeed. I moved here last year and its so windy due to the long drive. I swear someone will get the back end of my tongue if my Maple trunk busts.

I am so angry I am waiting for another bungalow.

One plant species I care deeply for are my Maples. Obviously I care about the others and my baby Ensete but my old Maple is my treasure above all else.

Don't you dare break my Maples.
