I am allowed to moan, you know...

Yes, I am allowed to moan. I don't like to moan to my nearest and dearest who have to put up with me in real life, but on here I feel that I am allowed. After all, you can just click me away without hurting my feelings if I am boring/annoying you, can't you ?

Now, I write a weekly newsletter for a local organisation. I write the draft on a Tuesday, which I send out to be approved by various committee members, and then do the final draft on a Wednesday. I ask people to send me any pieces/articles they want included by 8pm Tuesday night. Fair enough ?

So it pisses me off when I sit down at my computer just before I go to bed, on the said Tuesday night, at 10pm, with the letter all written, and find 4 e-mails with articles that all desperately need including. What time do these people think I go to bed ? I have worked all day. I was off sick yesterday because I felt so dire. I try my best to write a good newsletter and be accommodating, but Good Grief !!!

It really gets on my wick. And, what's worse, some of these people make me feel like a real oik, which I am not. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

You have a right to be mad. If you do not include things received after 8pm, then they will wait til the next newsletter.
Groan and growl and howl all you want to, I am listening.
