How do folks walk around with a chip on their shoulder everyday?
Doesnít it get heavy?
Is there really a speech that can be given to lighten it or does it just get heavier?

Some people aren't happy unless they're miserable.


Common sense is a not a vegetable that does well in everyone's garden.

I know a few guys who would complain if you gave them $100, because they had to take out their wallet to put it away.

I remember a guy who got a $5000 bonus for selling insurance some years ago.
His comment was, "Yeh, but you still have to pay taxes on it!"
I told him, "Give me the money, I'll pay the taxes on it!"


Diapers and most politicians should be changed often both for the same reason.

The American dream used to be to invent a product or open a new business that was in demand and eventually made you well off.

The new American dream is to achieve some sort of victim status and then never again take responsibility for you or even your kids.

We get an occasional yearly bonus. When it first started it was at least 4 figures. One year it was only a couple hundred dollars and folks were complaining. I mean really complaining, things like that it isnít worth wasting a check for, etc. I told them, thatís a couple hundred I didnít have when I got up this morning and if you done want it, just sign the back and give it to me, Iíll take care of it for you. It really sorta blew me away theyíd complain about getting money. Too much and the taxes take most of it. Not enough and itís not worth printing a check. Heck Iíd be content with $50. Itís money I didnít have when I drove in that morning!!
Yes, some people are just never happy.

My SIL's husband is like that. Just absolutely miserable. Moans and complains about everything.

He's been fired from every factory job he has had because of it. He went and got his CDL and does OTR. SIL is happy during the week while he's gone. He comes home on Fridays and told us most weekends she can't wait until he leaves again Sun/Mon.

Exactly the reason I put my MIL on the street once. But I'm resigned to the fact that she'll live under my roof til we put her in the ground. Be we got that understanding of where I draw the line out of the way.
