Whining Thread #2

Depending on how they are made and where the problem is, you might just be able to move the hook and bar/button for the meantime and move it back later if you expand. ;)
That might work, but would create unsighty 'pull' lines I suppose. Actually, i just tried it and the pull is negligible. So, that might not be a bad idea at all. I think I might just be able to add a second button & hook and then could switch.

My belly seems a bit weird. When I leave it relaxed (eg off the dance-floor) the trousers still seem fine, but when I make them tighter to fit when I tighten my muscles, it would probably look like they are way too tight. Oh well, first world problems :p

Every five years I have to be reinvestigated for my security clearance. No big deal, except this time the form was 127 pages long and it took 10 hours to complete. Does anyone every really answer 'yes' to the question, "In the past seven years have you associated with known terrorists?"

Wouldn't it be hilarious if you did? Hehe! I can only imagine the reactions.

As do I. Suprisingly, this time around, my questionaire was online, and contained all the info from my last investigation. It took me about 15 minutes to click "ok" on most of it, update what was needed, and hit send. Thank goodness! These things used to take hours....

Same here. But I suspect that NURDRMS' clearance is a wee bit higher than mine. :D

DS was at his father's house roughly 20 hours when he broke his $600 cell phone. Honest to goodness. Every time the boy goes there, something major goes wrong and it always costs me money.

I know it's just stress which makes the boy clumsy/less cautious, but grumble. Grumble. Fortunately, I have insurance on the phone. But there's still a deductible. Grumble.

um, no. these folks have no sense of humor. Neither do the polygraph folks, for that matter.

Biggest issue is the fact that I own foreign property, my husband owns stock in foreign corporations, I travel to other countries for not-work-related reasons, and I drive a Corvette. The investigators always struggle with these areas of the questionnaire.

So, so glad to have people like you in positions of responsibility to protect smart alecks like me.

And what the heck does a Corvette have to do with anything? *rhetorical* You have a good job. You buy a sports car (I hope it's candy apple red. lol) You have earned that dang Corvette. just sayin.

Lol, thanks. But it is Air Force blue. And, according to some folks, it's a frivolous expenditure (especially if you live in snow country) and therefore must mean I have 'extra' money I may have gotten from somewhere suspicious. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad there are investigators to keep us in line, but as the article in the link above mentions, they may not be focusing their attention in the most effective way.
 
more diddley-muddlin' ; we do a couple of sketches for a client ; emails some different ideas he has..but they don't fit on the site; either we talk to him round a table or we are going round in circles....and its my boss not managing things again....oy effin vay..:rolleyes: and this roll eyes doesn't cut the mustard either

Crisis averted. The replacement phone is on its way to DS. Exact same make and model. Only $99 deductible. The seven bucks a month I've been paying just paid for itself.
